Nightmare Incursion Discussion
1 week ago
Wake of Destruction is a maybe but Nightmare Incursion is definitely staying. I've exiled 15+ cards with. Not to mention adding Sadistic Sacrament on top of it for those that decide to incur Rakdos' wrath early haha. I am looking at AEther Snap as it has been underwhelming as of late. Even though on paper the card is insanely good. Everlasting Torment is another that I haven't cared for. It's in there for the "damage can't be prevented" aspect, but that just hasn't mattered recently. Not to mention I have other instant speed sources. I like the idea and am willing to try it out king-saproling. Thanks for the comment man!

From one Jelover to another, this deck made me smile!
Thada Adel, Acquisitor is also a good way to remove "pesky artifacts" (I'm looking at you, Paradox Engine ). She is commonly known as "the Sol Ring Stealer" but many people overlook that she exiles the artifact permanently. Sure, you can only cast it the turn you steal it, but why would anyone other than that Oloro player need an Aetherflux Reservoir ?
Happy brewing, all hail the Poster Child of Grixis!

Feldon's Cane follows in those footsteps
Another tactic I’ve seen is being very aggressive, offensive and proactive about it instead of reactive. This however once again relies on How well you know your play groups meta. In all honesty my main group does not see a great deal of GY hate. There is one strong Muldrotha deck and that’s about it. Graveyard love is not a common theme in the group so why should hate be there? However, if the meta sees a lot of GY hate then I really liked these very aggressive gems.

gdm1989 That's the thing about playing Toshiro that I both love and hate. He tends to be completely underestimated when played in a group who hasn't seen you use him before, and he'll more than likely be brushed off and ignored for the duration of the game until you let loose some explosive finish out of nowhere and you start getting targeted in game two or really any other time you pull the deck from its box which makes me sad. I've been really careful in this rendition of the deck to be as subtle as possible and try not to pose clear threats on the board. The whole purpose of my deck is to be ignored and unappealing to attack, so that I'm kept in the game long enough to thin out everyone's board state and slip a win condition through when the blue player at the table isn't expecting it. Unfortunately in my new playgroup there is a Chain Veil Teferi main who has a very finely tuned competitive deck, so I need to be extra careful about him.
I know what you mean about Death Wish, if anything I think I will more likely end up slotting in Mastermind's Acquisition for one more mana to avoid the hefty drawback, and it doubles as a tutor aside from its Wish mode which is really nice. I'll try working on a package for it in the sideboard soon enough.
Thrilling Encore looks like a lot of fun. Battlebond had a lot of interesting things to offer and I was unfortunately on a bit of a hiatus at the time of its release so I never got the chance to try the new cards from that set. I like Encore a lot because it reminds me of a sort of cheaper pseudo version of Rise of the Dark Realms, and I like that card a lot too especially in a deck like this. I've been aiming for this deck to have a Reanimator subtheme without it feeling highly prevalent and taking away from the main playstyle, and I believe Encore more than adequately achieves the sense of subtlety that I am aiming for, because it can be used in a reserved fashion or it can be abused if I have enough ramp and chain together a ton of kill spells in a single turn... which this deck tends to do very often haha. Also Encore is an instant spell which Toshiro is a fan of! Excellent suggestion once again!
I can see Nightmare Incursion as means to ruin the heavy combo player's day and Choice of Damnations to play politics (also flavorful with the Toshiro quote). I can also see practical application of Wand of Vertebrae in this deck to bury instant spells, and to also return cards back into my library if I accidentally bury something I don't want in my graveyard or if something gets removed and I'm unable to reanimate it. Thank you for bringing these cards to my attention, I have seen them in other Toshiro decks, but I never actually tried them out in mine. I think this deck is going to be undergoing a lot of testing in the near future, so I'm very open minded when it comes to testing new things out.
Thank you again for your suggestions, as well as your praise and support. I've been alluding to bringing back my "filthy casual" deck (which is this one) in this newer playgroup of mine for a while now, which is funny because others may view Toshiro as a casual general while people like you and I who have experienced piloting a deck around him know that he has lots of potential. I initially turned my head toward "higher tier" generals, but I've been wanting to go back to my roots and work on this deck again which was the first commander deck I ever built. I'm going to be conducting some tweaking and tuning to hopefully gear the deck around this meta, and I'll be sure to update my description with all the decks I tend to see in this playgroup of mine so you as well as others can more appropriately help make suggestions based on meta calls.

Unfortunately I had to dismantle my toshiro deck and converted it into a Yuriko Stax deck. :( (I may rebuild it again) Too many people killed me first the moment they saw me using him. The whole game shop and my friends would rather deal with a narset then him. That's how dangerous my toshiro was. XD
As for the wish cards, they can be useful if you're going to combo out but in some cases they can also put you at a disadvantage if someone counters the card you pick after you pay half your life with Death Wish so be very careful.
Now for the instants I also recommend Thrilling Encore, you'll be surprised how quick it will turn the game towards your favor. Price of Fame, Dark Bargain, Detection Tower were excellent suggestions to put into your deck. I do recommend giving Cast Down a chance. It may not target legendaries but there are non legendaries that are a severe threat.
Overall I like what you have so far :)
