Nirkana Revenant Discussion

cgannon on Perverter of Truth? Demon? No, not Trump... close.

4 hours ago

To make those X spells even more potent, I recommend looking out for Nirkana Revenant, Bubbling Muck, Black Market and - no mono-colored deck is truly complete without it - Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Also, I made this alter just for this deck because the name was so on point.

WrathofCod on shirei in refining

@ frwtr1968 Love the deck so far! It seems like a very fun and efficient mix of ramp, stax, sacrifice effects and reanimation! Normally, I would suggest adding some more ramp, but honestly I think you are pretty good! However, 37 lands for a deck with an average cmc of 2.86 is a lot and I would suggest cutting a land or two and adding in some more mana doublers like Nirkana Revenant and Magus of the Coffers to help ramp you (I would lower your land count to 36 lands if it was up to me, but 37 is just fine too). Nirkana Revenant is also a great finisher if you can somehow manage to get it through unblocked with something like a Whispersilk Cloak! The only thing I am struggling with is how you plan to win the game. While winning through attrition and recursion is definitely possible, I feel like you deck lacks staying power late game. Since you have a bunch of 1/1s and 2/2s, you aren't really winning through combat damage, and since you don't have any infinite combos (that I can see) you can't threaten to combo off and win that way. I would personally recommend adding in at least one infinite combo, a few more tutors and some more sac effects to help you win the game easier! In particular, I would recommend including the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista/Triskelion combo to close out games that go long. In addition to being a combo piece, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is an amazing value engine that provides redundancy in terms of recursion and synergizes with Black Sun's Zenith! Another way to increase the power level of your deck is to add more tutors. Some tutors that are underused and would work great in your deck are Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen. Lastly there are a TON of cards that synergize with your sacrifice theme (of permanents in general, not just creatures) or that benefit from creatures dying, that I think warrant some serious consideration. It don't have time to explain them all, so I will just provide a list and let you decide which ones to include! Alright, here are the cards I think should probably be in your deck: Fume Spitter, Tree of Perdition, Toxic Deluge, Death Cloud, Deathgreeter, Demon of Death's Gate, Ob nixilis, the unshackled, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Weaponcraft Enthusiast (amazing reanimation target), Nezumi Bone-Reader, Malicious Affliction (Best removal for your colors!), Exsanguinate, Lake of the Dead, Bitterblossom (a must include in my opinion), Tragic Slip, Darksteel Plate (to protect Shirei), Hope of Ghirapur, Champion's Helm (same reasoning as Darksteel Plate), Bone Splinters, Killing Wave, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Waste Not, Cryptbreaker, Strionic Resonator (Does double Shirei triggers sound fun?!), Wretched Confluence, Entomb, and Champion of Stray Souls! Anyways, I know that's a lot of suggestions and a lot of information to take in, but I figured I should give you all the advice I have and let you decide what to do with it! Feel free to ask me for more advice or suggestions if you need to. Good luck with this amazing deck!

Nirkana Revenant? You can never have too many mana doublers

griffstick on "My" Top 10 mono black ...

4 weeks ago

Ok so Josh and Jimmy from the command zone made an episode of top 10 black and top 10 green very recently. Here's the link to the episode, click here. I want to make a similar list with a twist, using only cards with cmc 6 or greater to make this list. (Excluding cards with X in it's cost, "X" doesn't count here). If this is successful I will do every mono color for cards 6 cmc or greater. Btw I'm not bashing the command zone at all I'm a huge fan. (This list will be budget as well) no cards over 20$ US dollars... maybe

So here goes "my" top 10 mono black edh cards with total cmc 6 or greater. With 1 being the best.

All the rest after the are honorable mentions

Every card mentioned above in the top ten are based off my gameplay exp in my kitchen table metta.

I want everyone's feed back on the order, and what cards you think should make the list, and cards I missed.

Hello and thanks for your suggestions DRmagic2017! The only slot for Sengir Vampire I see would be Sengir Nosferatu, which one I'm liking a bit more because of him being kinda hexproof. I don't see Sengir Vampire's ability triggering too often, because of the lacking of deathtouch or tons of spot removal in the deck.I will consider to swap something out for Metallic Mimic and/or Adaptive Automaton. Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is already in the deck and yeah, Nirkana Revenant would be awesome but a bit too pricy for now. You're absolutely right with Bloodflow Connoisseur! I'll swap that one out for Nirkana Cutthroat for sure!

Hello! Nice deck. But why didn't you include Sengir Vampire? I also recommend to think about Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic. This is a tribal deck so these cards seem to be useful.
Don't know your budget limit but Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet and Nirkana Revenant may also be included. And I'm not sure about Bloodflow Connoisseur - do you really want to sacrifice your own creatures? Nirkana Cutthroat looks more preferable.

Great start! A few suggestions for mono-black edh:

Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Nirkana Revenant- these create an incredible amount of mana.

Necropotence and Phyrexian Arena provide the best card draw for mono-black.

Black also provides access to some nasty enchantments: my favorite No Mercy, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, painful quandry, and Exquisite Blood

As for creatures: Sheoldred, Whispering One and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are black staples.

Feel free to check out my Sheoldred deck for some more ideas.
