Nyxathid Discussion

Faraven on D I S C A R D

Also Nyxathid and Thoughtpicker Witch if you had a bitterblosum you would be able to get fodder or some other type of creature added like grave Titian. Thoughtpicker allows for real oppression because it’s instant speed. So you can say oh your going to draw. Have another land

Cereal_Killer on Why mill if you can exile?

Since i will lose some life due to the shock, the fetches, Thoughtseize and Surgical Extraction I was thining about creature that could also be a problem for my opponent: Death's Shadow. Could it have any sense instead of Fog Bank, or do you think it's not worth?

Another creature I was considering is Nyxathid, but I need to playtest it.

You have 2 Nyxathid listed. All Hallow's Eve would work well, yes it also brings back your opponents creatures but you should have more and better creatures.Artisan of Kozilek,Journey to Eternity  Flip,Breath of Life,Corpse Connoisseur, Dawn of the Dead would all fit your theme.

mrfab13 on Budget 8 Rack

i dont like 8 rack but imma help you out, you are going to want like 2x the ammount of removal and probably Bontu's Last Reckoning split some main some side, also man lands are very good in this deck Mutavault is best but for budget you could jank out a Dread Statuary or Spawning Pool

Asylum Visitor is pretty nifty, sb mabey. also run like 4 gy hate cards, Rain of Tears could be fun,Nyxathid = big, Delirium Skeins for control, and Shadow of Doubt is good but creeping up in price

Sargeras on Competitive Mono Black Midrange on a Budget

If you are looking to play 4 copies, I'd suggest cutting the Nyxathids and a Lashwrithe, becuase honestly, with so many decks running Kolaghan's Command nowadays, lashwrithe can get blown out in some matchups. If you are looking to play 3 copies, I'd just swap them out over the Nyxathids.

Would Raven's Crime be any good here? Keep discarding your opponent cards and and dump your lands if you flood out. Keep Nyxathid big.

APPLE01DOJ on Mono Black control

Oh yea with all the discard Nyxathid and Asylum Visitor could be good options. I run them both in a similar mono black deck Ummm WHAT?!?! Attack of the Bobs!

APPLE01DOJ on Liliana Planeswalkers HELP!

1 month ago

I understand that you're a begginer to magic and I don't intend to discourage you but the best Liliana planeswalker in modern is Liliana of the Veil. Typically you would want 3-4 copies of her.

Now that's out of the way your deck is kind of all over the place which is fine good stuff decks are totally viable in modern but you have to have some consistency to them. So take Murder for example, this is a card you would want most games so 4 copies would be a good number to run. That being said, Murder isn't usually played because better (Hero's Downfall) and cheaper (Fatal Push, Cast Down) options exist.

Lastly you should under stand the strengths of Black are cheap creature removal (see above), discard spells like Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, as well as cards that trade life for advantage such as Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Arena, Bitterblossom or again Thoughtseize.

Creatures in black are typically overcosted or come with a significant down side (see Master of the Feast), Some are viable but must be built around like Abyssal Persecutor, Nyxathid, or Death's Shadow but the other option is to splash another color. Green pairs nicely with black thanks to cards like Tarmogoyf or Scavenging Ooze.
