Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

  • Your curve looks fine, but I think you want more lategame value. x decks in Modern run Liliana of the Veil, often as 4-ofs. You want something similar in lategame value generation. The planeswalkers you have now are a good start, but I think you really want a couple more, especially if they draw cards. 2 copies of Ob Nixilis Reignited might be good, as repeatable Murder and the ability to draw more cards is pretty good. Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage also does a decent impression of unplayable Lili of the Veil.

  • Removal Tribal? You have 10 pieces. I run 4-8 in my non-control decks.

  • Chevill seems weird. I think he's better in EDH. Great for politics. Not so great when he's a really situational Howling Mine that is hit by Fatal Push and Lightning Strike, which everyone is running. I admire trying to use him, but I don't think he's gonna see non-EDH play outside of standard.

In regards to draw support, it depends on how fast you want it. Ob Nixilis Reignited and Bloodgift Demon are serviceable in most casual builds, including my own, Heavenly Inferno, and would effectively give you two more copies of Arena. For your build, I'd also recommend Sign in Blood and Read the Bones for added redundancy. Vilis, Broker of Blood is also pretty handy and would cause you to draw more from these effects.

First off, thanks much to Argy for your kind consideration of this deck & your advice of ways to improve it - immensely appreciated!

I’ve already identified no less than 7 cards that are ineffective & can easily be replaced, some with your suggestions. It was in fact “thrown together” w/ stuff I already had - can’t fool you, huh? EBay is still my source, and I heard nothing but good things about Castle Locthwain, so I immediately ordered 2, already received. Rob Nicholson II (aka Ob Nixilis Reignited) also purchased & on his way to PO Box.

Seems I’ve become a theme decker @ this point, and I think Murderous Rider would make a splendid horseman for the carriages. I’m gonna add some Midnight Reapers for this purpose, too: both are great “M.R.” Black riders, but from what I can find available @ the moment, the Reaper is Cheaper!

Last but not least there will be a Whip included, as well as a couple/three disposable robotic coachmen.... custom categories will be enabled for maximum silliness. Stay tuned for the upgrade... hopefully will be significantly more of a functional build after the changes.

This deck is built more like a Commander deck then a Pioneer deck. That means it won't be very consistent. It also means that its path to victory isn't clear.

Take a look at this deck Sarkhan's Dragon Den

It has three very clear win conditions. The description also describes what it wants to happen in the early, mid, and late stages of the game.

Once you decide how you want this deck to win, work out which cards will get you there. Beef them up to 3 and 4 copies, and start cutting back the single copy cards.

I'm not sure of your budget, either. I have a feeling that you mashed this list together out of cards you already own. I can tell you from approximately six years of brewing my own decks, you are unlikely to win any games at a tournament without buying a good number of Rares and Mythics for your deck.

An example I can see right away is that Murderous Rider is a far batter card than Murder

I have played with both.

I would also get rid of Cabal Stronghold for 3x Castle Locthwain

Once again, I have been playing with this card and it is ridiculously good.

You have no good ongoing draw in this deck. I use Ob Nixilis Reignited

Due to the fact that Ob Nix uses my life, Murderous Rider helps offset that, as does Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Kalitas is very good at the moment, as he exiles creatures. People have a lot of recurring creatures in the current meta.

You have a lot of work to get this deck more ship shape.

When you've made it more competitive give me a shout, and I'll take another look at it.

Good luck.

okay firstly add a Mountain to your land base, it allows you to get a red source out of your deck with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse cut a swamp for it because your land count is perfectly fine for an aggro deck now let's get to the meat of the feast I would cut Zombify for Tortured Existence you only get a mana discount for 8 of the cards in your deck and the repeatability is much better. Sign in Blood should be replaced with Read the Bones digs deeper for 1 more mana. cut Hierophant's Chalice for Heraldic Banner. cut Sorin, Vampire Lord for Ob Nixilis Reignited, and if you cut that one you should cut Sorin's Guide which should be replaced with Cordial Vampire. if you can swing it Captivating Vampire is very good and I can guarantee it will make the deck much better. Bladebrand out for Champion of Dusk super strong and could help you win the game. cut Vampire Neonate for Indulgent Aristocrat. Breaking Point out for Underworld Connections repeatable card advantage. Ill-Gotten Inheritance out for Dark Tutelage again repeatable card draw. Revenge of Ravens out for Bad Moon. and lastly Tribute to Hunger out for Intangible Virtue.

now these are all suggestions and they are just a start, and I tried to keep all the cards around a buck or less besides Captivating Vampire

Ob Nixilis Reignited is removal, draw and a backup win condition.

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.

If Ob Nixilis Reignited's only purpose is card draw, out for Guardian Project

That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.

Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.

Kodama's Reach in for Golgari Signet, Circuitous Route in for Fellwar Stone, Far Wanderings in for Wayfarer's Bauble - net same mana without threshold, but with it a lot better.
Solemn Simulacrum in for Artisan of Kozilek- Artisan is nice but so expensive, while the sad robot is ramp, card draw, and sac fodder.

Death's Presence in for Nyx Weaver - You don't lose any power for sacking your creatures.

Crucible of Worlds in for Whispersilk Cloak

Illusionist's Bracers in for Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Archfiend of Despair in for Boneyard Wurm- have to cut one of this effect at this point, Wound Reflection in for Liliana, Death's Majesty - could take out the other Lily, but her best case scenario is better.

These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.

Be careful about putting the Cauldron out too early, since it prevents Death Triggers.

Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.

Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.
