Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

Thieves' Fortune could be upgraded with Supreme Will . Essentially the same cost as the chance of triggering prowl is almost non-existent, has the Impulse effect you are looking for plus you have another potential [weak] counterspell in the decklist.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept could give you another way to recur Gray Merchant of Asphodel .

A couple of non-creature permanents to add to your devotion could be useful here; No Mercy , Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence or a mono-black planeswalker like Ob Nixilis Reignited . Sorry these aren't the most budget of suggestions...

Command the Dreadhorde could act as a backup of sorts to Living Death .

I think Yawgmoth is a good choice against big creature/ramp decks.

Having Damnation is a good start to beating these types of decks. Dead of Winter with Snow-Covered Swamp and Crux of Fate are underrated board wipes in Commander. Yawgmoth's -1/-1 ability can kill little creatures and then make your opponents sacrifice big creatures ( Plaguecrafter , Fleshbag Marauder , Dictate of Erebos ). Ravenous Chupacabra and Shriekmaw can really ruin an opponent who ramps into a big creature to then have it killed. Since Ravenous and Shriekmaw are creatures that makes reanimation and recursion good with them. Ob Nixilis Reignited is another way to kill big creatures which is nice with proliferate from Yawgmoth.

With black you can go completely over the top of ramp decks with reanimation ( Buried Alive , Animate Dead , Victimize ). Use it on flying creatures such as Vilis, Broker of Blood and Rune-Scarred Demon . You can play cards that create tokens ( Nest of Scarabs , Dreadhorde Invasion , Pawn of Ulamog ) which can be good blockers against big creatures who don't have trample or flying.

Um SMASHER101 I know what is legal. I don't need a program to tell me which expansions I can use.

I have played a version of this deck for over twelve months, first at Standard and then Frontier. It works.

Ob Nixilis Reignited is both a late game draw engine, another form of removal, and puts the Opponent on a clock. I'd like to know another 'walker that can do all of that.

I meant to replace Murder with Murderous Rider , which sits at the right place on the curve and is often better removal than Grasp of Darkness

Vraska's Contempt comes in mostly against Planeswalkers. It's useful against Superfriends.

This is a Control deck. It needs all the different types of removal it can get its hands on.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar belongs in the Sideboard. He often makes his way into the main deck in game 2, and the Opponent isn't ready to deal with him. Although he is good, the late game draw engine of Ob Nixilis Reignited and Sorin, Grim Nemesis keeps my hand full of answers.

I have played with both Liliana, the Last Hope and Elspeth, Sun's Champion . Their lack of draw means they are not as good as the other Planeswalkers I have.

There is no way that Anguished Unmaking will ever leave this deck. Have you read what it does? It often gets me out of scrapes. Goodbye Scrapheap Scrounger . No Thopters from you Hangarback Walker . I replace it with Declaration in Stone if it turns out that I only need to Exile Creatures.

Thanks for your comments. You have made me realise that I need more detail in my description. I will hop on that when I have time.

I would try to lower the curve a bit by cutting Sorin, Grim Nemesis for some cheaper planeswalker and cutting Murder and vraska's contept you don't need THAT much removal in this format most likely as combo will probably be a thing like modern. There are probably better walkers than Ob Nixilis Reignited . I would move the gideons to the maindeck definitely and declaration in stone could replace some of the maindeck removal that is expensive like Murder or Anguished Unmaking . Liliana, the Last Hope is probably decent. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is a good 6 mana walker if you really want one.

LordBlackblade on Turn YOURSELF into a Planeswalker!!

LordBlackblade, Unbound Corruptor

Legendary Planeswalker - LordBlackblade

+1 Until end of turn, whenever you tap a Swamp for mana, add an additional .

-3 Each opponent loses four life. You gain life equal to the life lost this way.

-8 Each opponent sacrifices all creatures, enchantments, and planeswalkers they control.


I mean, it's me so it HAS to be black, like really black. I went with a devotion heavy mana cost as a pseudo-drawback/restriction to compensate coming in with five loyalty for only four mana. Then for the abilities I went with effects I love in MTG. Black, big-mana, life drain, and sacrifice. I added enchantments to the ultimate due to the recent experiment in black enchantment removal: Mire in Misery. For the art I'm picturing something demonic like Ob Nixilis Reignited but with less fire and more dark magic effects like Liliana, the Necromancer. Anyway, fun exercise! I look forward to seeing what people create!

hemddernacht on U want them all dead? I got this!

Necropotence exiles all my cards i discard, which would interfere with the reanimator theme, so i skipped that.

I ran Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood and Ancient Craving at first, but i wanted repeatable card draw and preferable not in sorcery speed. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Greed are often enough, Ob Nixilis Reignited and/or Wretched Confluence and Vilis, Broker of Blood and Phyrexian Arena should be enough card draw in most cases.
