Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion
1 week ago
Cards to play: Psychosis Crawler which will reward you for drawing by dealing damage. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is the better ob nixilis for this deck. Whispering Madness, Dark Deal, Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, Incendiary Command, Wheel of Fate, Time Reversal, Echo of Eons are all wheel effects that make your opponents suddenly draw a ton of cards that will then let you deal damage to everyone. Prosperity Will have everyone drawing equally. Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Arcane Signet are decent mana rocks you're missing. Arcane Denial counters a spell and lets them draw and replaces itself. Stormfist Crusader howling mine effect but punishes at the same time.
Cards to take out. Pillage Very inefficient. Quest for Ancient Secrets Very slow. Sadistic Sacrament not really what this deck is truly wanting to do. Shrieking Affliction 99/100 games your opponents will have more than 1 card in hand. Darksteel Plate just too expensive to be good for this deck. Ob Nixilis Reignited not as good as the other ob nixilis. Cerebral Vortex not usually going to deal massive damage and only damages 1 opponent. Painful Quandary I like this card and probably wouldn't get rid of it, but your opponents will usually have the card to discard. Crawlspace not really going with your overall game plan, it does slow your opponents down,but not by enough. Nin, the Pain Artist it's a lot of mana to sink into an effect like this. Curse of Fool's Wisdom only targets 1 player, it's really too limited. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell a lot of your debate sources are black, this is decent with your commander but not much else. Reverberate I didn't see a huge number of decent targets forthis spell and it doesn't do a whole lot of good. Darksteel Ingot I don't personally like seeing 3 cost mana ramp, I'd suggest replacing it with a signet.
I would like to say that I really like your deck, it's an interesting take on an interesting commander. This is meant to be constructive and all with the best intentions.

The only issue with destroy all artifacts is that it destroys treasures, too. You can have it destroy all non-token artifacts instead, or something similar, instead. Or destroy all creatures and make that many treasures. That sounds pretty Gorgon-like. Also, most planeswalkers with creature removal abilities generally have them on their minus (think Liliana of the Veil, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Karn Liberated, etc), so I think that puts in perspective how powerful creature removal is. Planeswalkers with creature removal as a plus get banned like Oko, Thief of Crowns. I really like what you’ve got going here, though.

Cool budget list! Here's some inspiration you could play: To improve your ramp you should play Wayfarer's Bauble!, Terrain Generator, Mind Stone!, Worn Powerstone! and/or Dark Ritual/Mana Geyser/Seething Song. Good carddraw: Phyrexian Arena!, Sign in Blood!, Light Up the Stage, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Read the Bones/Syphon Mind! And another totally underated card is Mayhem Devil with fetch lands like Bloodstained Mire or Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse/Grixis Panorama. Other cool cards: Geier Reach Sanitarium, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Pyroblast, Syr Konrad, the Grim! & Rakdos Charm! Non Budget options: Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Deadly Rollick, Deflecting Swat, Dockside Extortionist, Kolaghan's Command, Fire Covenant, Fiery Confluence, Toxic Deluge & Blasphemous Act

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.
