Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

Reverie42 on Atrax EDH (In The Works)

A couple things to maybe consider:

  • Winding Constrictor makes a good second Hardened Scales.
  • Zameck Guildmage is cheap and can draw some cards.
  • Oath of Ajani puts counters on everything and can give incidental value to your planeswalkers
  • If you're looking for some budget-friendly plansewalkers that are solid in Atraxa, Ajani Unyielding, Ob Nixilis Reignited and Vraska the Unseen are all relatively cheap and come with removal modes that are much easier to use multiple times due to Atraxa's proliferate.
  • It's not a super popular pick, but in Atraxa builds with a lot of +1/+1 counters, I like Black Sun's Zenith. A lot of times you can cast it with a low enough count that it just lops a couple counter off of your own creatures that you can proliferate back, but proceeds to just wreck everyone else's board as Atraxa proliferates.
  • Contagion Clasp is cheap and a decent mana sink. It's obviously way weaker than Contagion Engine, but it's also 1/10th of the price.

I just get the feeling that Ob Nixilis Reignited and Noxious Gearhulk are over-loading the deck with high cmc cards. I would tend to go with another mana-dork and maybe something like Blossoming Defense or Commencement of Festivities and have 3 each of Sandwurm Convergence and Cruel Reality, which will finish the game rather quickly if you can keep them on the field.

Maybe some cycling to get through your deck and find the best cards.

I run a similar Deck.

maybe helpful cards: Blighted Fen, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Inquisition of Kozilek, Hero's Downfall

Maybe take a look, we have pretty the same creatures and some same spells. You played a creature? And.... its gone!

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip has been great so far. Here's my thoughts on him for the 'See' you and card choices section', which you may have missed: GENERAL VALUE: Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, to dig for Creatures. He also flips easily against Control and if an opponent stumbles at all.

Oath of Nissa would make sense if the deck had Planeswalkers.

Ob Nixilis Reignited is a fine card, but I can't imagine it in this deck. He's much worse here than Nissa, Vital Force, so I don't see adding him unless the deck somehow evolves to a point where it wants 7 or more 5-drops. Especially since the deck already has a ton of card draw and removal.

Thanks though.

I don't know if this style of deck wants Duskwatch. Personally I havent't tried it, so it may be better than I am assuming. I would probably suggest Transgress the Mind over it, or if you are looking for a similar effect Oath of Nissa (which would make delirium easier to achieve). I could definitely see a case for Duskwatch in the sideboard for control match ups though. I'd also suggest Ob Nixilis Reignited, he is worth trying out. Repeatable unconditional removal and card draw makes the deck much stronger in the late game.

RavenlordUA To be honest, I gave up on it. It just doesn't work competitively. In Standard Showdown it's 4-15. The only reason it won 4 times was because I was playing someone with a terrible deck. I also tried it with Ob Nixilis Reignited. If I survive to turn 6 or more I find myself hoping to top deck anything that can keep me alive one more turn.The best combo I got though was -36 + 18. I had two Panharmonicon and used March from the Tomb to bring back two Kalastria Healer and a Cliffhaven Vampire. But good luck living that long against a decent deck. On a side note, I had a lot of compliments on the deck.

Unmask_Art, just for curiosity, can you show how your deck is looking now?

I'm running this deck too with one Ob Nixilis Reignited for draw and few Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness for control purposes

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is very good in this deck due to his Lifelink, ability to Exile small Creatures such as Scrapheap Scrounger and Dread Wanderer, and to get 2/2 Zombies on the field.

I've been running him in Cast a Shadow for four seasons now, and he is brilliant in a Control shell.

The constant draw with Ob Nixilis Reignited can't be underestimated.

He ultimate usually wins you games and his second ability acts like another removal spell.

Again, I've run him in Cast a Shadow and he's won me games once his Emblem is out.

The presence of Ob Nixilis in the deck is why there isn't one more Torrential Gearhulk.

I have been thinking about whether or not to put another one in, but it is mostly used in Control shells that don't end up with Planeswalkers at the top of their curve.
