Nyxathid Discussion

Darth_Savage on White Rack (Budget)

4 days ago

If your playing a rack deck at the moment, you should probably be main-decking graveyard hate. Too many modern decks use the graveyard as a resource... Necrogen Mists is on occasion included in budget list to dummy as Liliana of the Veil , giving regular discard. Hostile Desert in a deck splashing white anyway, is possibly a worse Shambling Vent . Vicious Rumors might be of more help than Duress, it's a new card though so I'm not sure. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip might be usable from the sideboard, if you have something like Death Cultist or Nyxathid which could double as a threat. Hope this is of help, good luck with your deck.

Also if you're going to keep a creature on the side I think you should go with Nyxathid.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have the Nyxathids and have tested them to find them pretty good and fun until it's them vs my smallpox. My original list runs 4x Vicious Rumors. That card is straight gas! It ditches 2 cards and drains 1 for 1 mana. Super overpowered in my opinion. I would rather be doing multiple things a turn than casting one Necrogen Mists. Mire's Toll is neat, haven't considered that. Blackmail was in my original list in place of the Thoughtseize because i didn't have any. I think it's worth a 2x in the main though. The ability to pull lands is just fantastic.

As a stop gap for Liliana of the Veil, you could try Necrogen Mists. I'd also suggest Mire's Toll or Blackmail, rather than Thoughtseize as the life loss will hurt, and Bojuka Bog, as there are a lot of graveyard based decks in modern. You could also test Vicious Rumors, which is new to the field.

I'd suggest Whispers of Emrakul and Creeping Chill if you were running Dakmor Salvage, but in your present setup you aren't, note that this pairs well with Raven's Crime. As an alternative win condition Nyxathid might be worth considering...

Nyxathid has no downside when Lazav, the Multifarious copies him because Lazav never entered the battlefield as Nyxathid so Nyxathid's abilities never trigger.

Nyxathid, Abyssal Nocturnus, and Shrieking Affliction would be nice in discard heavy decks. If you want the deck to be more creature heavy Fell Specter and Raiders' Wake are nice as well. Hypnotic Specter is also a good choice.

Coughlincohen I decided to take out the zubera and put in two more Nyxathid and two Abyssal Nocturnus as I still tend to favor Nyxathid over Nocturnus. Thanks for the comments.

Hey Coughlincohen thanks for the comment and upvote. I was considering Abyssal Nocturnus but couldn't seem to find a spot for it. I pretty much had Nyxathid fill that role. What do u think I should swap out for it?
