Nirkana Revenant Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, thanks for the suggestions! Definitely added a few of those to the maybeboard. I'm not too interested in an infinite combo for this deck, since that's not really the speed of my playgroup. I can loop Mangara of Corondor with a sac outlet and Phyrexian Reclamation if need be, and the oodles of tokens I create are not quite infinite but definitely enough to remove any other creature from the board and any life out of opponents' totals, when combined with Dictate of Erebos and a few aristocrats.
That's basically why I didn't fully go for the vampire tribal - Edgar doesn't make quite as many tokens as other non-vampire cards do, and I wanted more of an aristocrat deck than a go wide and tall with vampires deck. The tokens very rarely attack, but Edgar/Vish Kal/Drana/Licia is plenty powerful with a Blade of the Bloodchief and Whispersilk Cloak when you sac 20 zombies, then sac 20 spirits, then swing and give lifelink while Sanguine Bond is up.
I'm really liking the look of Phyrexian Altar, Bloodcrazed Paladin and Indulgent Aristocrat though. Might need to cut something to make room for those. Also thinking of swapping the Crypt Ghast out for Nirkana Revenant, or just putting both in and tripling my mana. I also like Legion's Landing Flip but I used to run Trading Post which serves the same purpose but is more versatile. Cut for Ashnod's Altar at the moment.

Just at first glance, it looks like you might want to add a few more ramp cards to your deck. Additionally, all of your ramp seems to be in the form of mana rocks which can put you in an awkward situation if someone plays a Vandalblast or something similar to wipe artifacts. Cards like Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart or Land Tax are some ways to get lands out of your deck and onto the field, seeing as lands are rarely destroyed in EDH. Nirkana Revenant is also a tibal option, although it only helps your black mana production and fairly spendy to acquire if you don't already own it.

Holy smokes, I love the discussion this is generating! Thank you all for your comments!
geekmp3: I like the cheap CMC of Planar Void but I worry about exiling some of my key enchantments or artifacts. Turns out, people really don't like discarding their whole hand and a lot of my permanents become quick targets. I've won a couple games by pulling my stuff back from the graveyard and recasting it.
Phenix: I considered Nirkana Revenant for ramp but she's so expensive to cast that I decided not to. I generally prefer to keep my ramp spells cheaper so I can cast them early game, or later game I can cast them and other things. I'm currently a little on the fence about keeping Caged Sun.
Thanks Kaleo42, I thought it was an amusing concept, too. Turned out to be just as fun to play. The decks I play against are a bit of a mixed bag. It's mostly kitchen table EDH, though my playgroup's experienced a bit of power creep as we strive to outdo one another. Some strong Jhoira suspending, tokens, combos, a number of quality voltron commanders but generally not much cruel control.
NoSoyYucateco, you're giving me good food for thought here:
Yeah, Scythe Specter's discard is conditional, relying on it dealing combat damage but I really like that makes all opponents discard. Its 6 CMC is pretty tough to swallow though - especially if it's killed before it even attacks. I did consider Bloodhusk Ritualist early on when building this deck but cut it, thinking that to make one person discard one card wasn't a great investment. But if I spent the same as Scythe Specter cost, I'd get that person to discard 3 immediately. Hmmm. I do like that the discard happens immediately, and I can scale my mana investment to "right-size" how many cards I want someone to discard. I might switch these two up.
Your Maralen of the Mornsong and Teferi's Puzzle Box combo is pretty cool and would definitely lock down the whole table. I like that Maralen can help me tutor up the puzzle box to complete the combo. But sometimes I want my opponents to draw cards, just so I can make them discard them and take damage with Liliana's Caress, Megrim and Raiders' Wake. Also, the puzzle box is a bit of a dead card to me without Maralen in play. I'll think on it.
I had Innocent Blood in my list for a while but with so few creatures, I was hesitant to run it for fear of having to sacrifice something really good. I figured Chainer's Edict was safer and pretty cheap for .

Skullclamp: For Draw
Nirkana Revenant: For Ramp
You run Dictate and Grave Pact, then you'd want to run recursion or a sac outlet

I can talk to you about these choices in detail later, if you'd like.

Thanks for the ideas!
Also, I found an Imperial Seal for 68, so I'm definitely going to pick that one up. Is the mana good? Or do I need more swamps for Cabal Coffers and Nirkana Revenant? I would like your opinions please :)

interesting deck I would add Nirkana Revenant

You fellas think I need some more ramp considering my mana curve is on the high side and Geth's ability is pretty expansive to keep using? Surely I already have Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast but I don't know if this is enough.
