Nirkana Revenant Discussion

DrukenReaps on First Dmir/Grave deck help

Artatras makes a lot of good points but I would mention that has strong mana production. Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Magus of the Coffers, Dark Ritual, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Cabal Stronghold, and Thespian's Stage.

Caged Sun works nicely in mono and 2 color but not 3+.

This is all black mana but you will only need 3-4 blue at most in a turn. The other thing of note is that some of it is expensive and might be out of budget...

Hey hkhssweiss, much thanks for the input! :)

I totally forgot that Vona's Hunger existed! :)) I'll have to watch how quickly I can get to 10 permanents.

I think I can try running Dismember; the -5/-5 is significant, compared to Sickening Shoal which might end up becoming a pitched Last Gasp most of the time. That one mana to pay can be a steep cost on when the game is down to the wire, but it lets me hit Atraxa, Edgar, and the like.

As for Extraplanar Lens, I'm actually going back and forth with it and Crypt Ghast, hence I haven't unsleeved my Snow-Covered Swamp.

Extraplanar Lens gets me two-for-oned in my meta, even when I use it as a Bubbling Muck. I also have trouble making the most out of it because I run a lot of nonbasic lands. Crypt Ghast dies to the Pox effects and other removal spells but it gives me Extort and at least I don't lose a land when they respond to it. I used to run Nirkana Revenant too, along with Caged Sun but it was too high on the curve, so they got cut out.

I do want to run Contamination so that I have 2 functional copies of Infernal Darkness, but I don't have the creature support for it.

Sadistic Sacrament was once part of the deck, but I ended up being able to regularly pay for the Kicker cost, which made me rather unpopular. I switched to Praetor's Grasp and added multicolor mana rocks so it can also act as an "off-color" tutor. However, I do still bring it out when I'm playing in a cutthroat environment.

Hey welcome to T/O!

For most Geth deck, they focus a lot on mana acceleration to be able to abuse his ability. Some cards that might be helpful to you can be:

Nirkana Revenant, Extraplanar Lens, Bubbling Muck, Cabal Ritual, Gauntlet of Power, Cabal Coffers, Cabal Stronghold, Jet Medallion

Also I would recommend adding in some more interaction/draw spells like:

Dismember, Vendetta, Sudden Spoiling, Slaughter Pact, Vona's Hunger, Mindblade Render, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood

Hope that helps!

You can check out my mono-black deck as well to gain some insight!

Hell no, keep Mana Web. It is SUPER good, it really messes with people and stops interaction and refrains them from casting spells on your turn. Same thing with Contamination and Infernal Darkness. I'm actually a little more iffy on Infernal Darkness, but yes I agree on more ramp. I use actually all the mana doubling black has access to because really, black is greedy we are here to trade our life to win. ALL OR NOTHING!

Some cards for mana ramp that I use is Extraplanar Lens, Caged Sun, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Gauntlet of Power. Along with some additional low cost mana rocks.

bushido_man96. Not particularly. Perhaps Braid of Fire as a replacement for Nirkana Revenant? Could Arbiter of the Ideal work as a replacement for Patron of the Moon?

Infiniteomniscience, I think those changes will help out. In regards to Patron of the Moon, I see it helping out more if you are running more of a lands-matters theme, but you are not really doing that here. Sure, there will be times when the card is incidentally good, but I don't see that happening consistently. Like with Nesting Dragon. Great if you have the two of them out, but independent of each other, how much does each one help out the rest of the deck?

The additions look good, but Nirkana Revenant jumps out at me. You are running 10 swamps in your mana base. Has Nirkana Revenant been very helpful for you?

seshiro_of_the_orochi I would definitely add in a bit more ramp so you would be able to cast more spells. Some recommendation I would add are Fatal Push, Cremate (So they can't reanimate their creature plus cantrip), Bile Blight (tech against tokens), Victim of the night, Hero's Downfall, Sudden Spoiling (absolutely love this card), Geth's Verdict, and Vona's Hunger.

Some ramp or resources I would also add in would be Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Cabal Coffers, Caged Sun just to name a few.

Hope that helps!
