Chasedrk1 on Demon Pack

Success has been linked to the opponents skill level. The highly competitive players have not taken long to figure out the decks wincon so its not a surprise, however when this plays on curve it has readily handled the current meta. the knew knights/angels deck may be problematic though as they are playing some low wide slamfests. Tokens are a bad matchup, but control and midrange have been cake. Vine Mare is an absolute Nightmare though!

Drakerider on The Black Oath

I would like to mention that I know someone who owns a black oath it goes the demon tribal rout. Here are some cards that I think that this deck would like for one Carrion Feeder, Nightmare, Reaper from the Abyss Demonlord Belzenlok a good turn 2 play is Desecration Demon and finally some good sack fodder Abhorrent Overlord.

Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both pretty bad cards. Their effect isn't that strong, and you can get better things for that amount of mana. Might I suggest you go the Devotion route with Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Dread Shade, Gifted Aetherborn, Geralf's Messenger, and Vampire Cutthroat. If budget is not an issue, Phyrexian Obliterator...all day, every day. If it is, then Desecration Demon is an amazing choice.

I would also change your tags. They're very misleading. You have "Casual" AND "Competitive" in there, when this deck is nowhere close to being able to compete in a competitive format. If you want it to be aggro then you really need to lower the average mana cost of the deck. Aggressive decks win by turn five at the VERY latest, and this deck isn't doing that. It's also not a dragons deck, nor is it Suicide Black. Suicide Black revolves around a card called Death's Shadow or Asylum Visitor. Basically they win as quickly as possible without putting up any defenses.

ExpletoryOrb on what am i doing

alright so here goes, so the cards to the left can be swapped with the ones to the right, it has the same or very similair effect but for a reduced mana cost etc.

Throttle -> Grasp of Darkness

Bloodtallow Candle -> Dismember

Whispers of Emrakul -> Hymn to Tourach

Painful Lesson -> Night's Whisper (there is also: Sign in Blood

Lethal Sting -> Victim of Night (there is also Go for the Throat)

Dutiful Return -> Ghoulcaller's Chant ? (its cheaper and will almost always be for a zombie? a lot cheeper but its your call.)

Abyssal Specter -> Hypnotic Specter

the next ones are cards i think you should strip, i will list them and then explain why:

Ruin Rat : you already have a few of these, and this isnt even a zombie. there are just better cards out there that arent expensive at all, (i'll give some suggestions further down the post)

Shambling Attendants : Just strictly bad, you dont want to play a 3/5 dude for 8 mana ever.

Cruel Feeding : its just pretty bad, the strive cost is very expensive just to +1/0 lifelink. dont use this unless you had something specific in mind that i didnt catch up on reading the list.

Duress and Divest : these never really do much, yes you get to pick away 1 card and see 1 hand but you will almost never hit anything especially good, only run this if you are planning to do a lot of 1v1 EDH.

Here are some suggestions of cards that are very cheap and are pretty good:

Empty the Pits

Zombie Apocalypse

Nightmare

Zombie Master

Nevinyrral's Disk

Exsanguinate

CasualCucumber on Devotion To Dank

Maybe Squelching Leeches and Nightmare

The deck looks pretty solid to me nonetheless :)

razor138 on What are some fun mono ...

if its casual and your group will allow it you can't get bigger then B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster)

or go classic and use Nightmare

Neotrup on Nightmare vs Hijack

3 months ago

Nightmare's power and toughness are each equal to the number of swamps controlled by it's controller while it's on the stack or battlefield, and by it's owner if it is in any other zone. This means that if while it's on the battlefield it's control changes (such as through Hijack) to a player who controls no swamps it will be a 0/0. A creature with 0 toughness is put into its owner's graveyard as a state based action. As it is no longer on the battlefield, it will not be returned at the end of turn when Hijack's control changing effect wears off.

My friend used Hijack and killed my Nightmare Because he has no any swamps. Is this normal? Thank you.
