Any thought on The Mending of Dominaria? seens a good finisher with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen

And how do it goes with 3 Ramunap Excavator? i feel its so important to run less than 4.

kynerdi Do you have your Yidris deck on Tapped out? I do wish this deck had black so I could include Gitrog and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Retreat to Hagra, and Bloodghast

There are some pretty major philosophical differences in design and purpose, but if you'd like to take a look at my version, head over to Grow strong. Embrace power. Seek vengeance.

It looks like your main engine is Cauldron of Souls + Dross Scorpion + Melira, Sylvok Outcast . A Riftsweeper wouldn't be amiss for disaster proofing and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will probably net you more value than Panharmonicon

Bloodghast and Stone-Seeder Hierophant add a lot of value to Perilous Forays and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen turns those into a win con against at least one player.

You might also need some more raw card draw and graveyard hate.

Logics on Summoning Sultai (Value Heartless Summoning)

lagotripha - Villainous Wealth has 0 synergy with what the deck is trying to do, we're trying to cheat costs on creatures more than straight ramping. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen tends to win us the game on the spot if we untap with him. Depending on our board sometimes he wins just with his landfall ability the turn he's played. Avenger of Zendikar has horrible synergy with our key card, Heartless Summoning, and Herald of Leshrac is much too slow for 7 mana. Reap Intellect runs into the same problem as Villainous Wealth. We're not actually ramping, we're just cheating the cost of creatures, so it is extremely slow and too weak for modern in general. I appreciate the feedback though :)

ijustaguy - Rhonas the Indomitable is great with The Gitrog Monster, but it has no synergy with the land drops, and it's really only good with my frog friend. As for Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, that's a card I might consider, although it feels like it's probably too slow. Khalni Heart Expedition is another interesting one, and with the amount of fetches we run, it could be a good consideration. It fits into the same spot on the curve as Heartless Summoning which is very nice.

Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Oracle of Mul Daya are great for Fastbond. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great for Titania. Heartless Summoning is great for squandered resources (I know it doesn't let you sac lands but it does accel your deck like crazy. Replacement for green sun Z is unnesecary, but if you had to I'd do no more than 2 Chord of Calling.

In this kind of deck, you definately need to run 4x Ghost Quarter. With Ramunap and Azusa on the field, you can blow up 3 of your opponents lands per turn. That's awesome.

I would also say viscera seer is kinda pointless in this deck, and I would maybe cut some hydra broodmasters as they are cool in theory, but they just aren't the greatest wincon for this type of deck. That part is up to you though, it's not too important.

If you make the changes I suggested it actually look alot like a deck called RG valuetown, which is very popular and very effective. So good job and keep up the good work!

@ghgiunco Thanks for the comment, happy you like the deck. On your suggestions I'll take them one by one:

+1 Ob Nixilis, the Fallen: I agree with you that Ob Nix is a very reliable way to just win the game on the spot. I do, however, like him only as a two-of because he's abysmal to draw multiples of, and since we get to dig and shuffle a lot with this deck between Gitrog, Tireless Tracker, and Oracle of Mul Daya, we are able to find him quite often. While I love Ob, I prefer him as a 2-of rather than a 3-of.

Rampaging Baloths: I've considered the beast engine a few times, and I haven't actually tested it, but it's something worth trying. The only problem I see with it is that it would definitely be replacing Ob Nix, and I'm not sure if going wide with a bunch of beasts is better than just draining our opponent and getting a huge Ob Nixilis. Worth trying though.

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip: This card is very interesting and I think I'd be willing to try it. It would probably take the spot of the Edge of Autumn in the main, since it acts as an alternate way to ramp, as well as it can draw us cards once we have enough lands. It's something I'll probably test.

Summoner's Pact: I'm not huge on Pact just because we have a lot of ways of powering out creatures already. It's really bad when we don't have Heartless Summoning out since we really can't play it until turn 4 on, and when we have Heartless out it stifles our turn following the Pact resolution. It feels like one of those cards that are great when you're already ahead, but really bad when you're behind.

I hope I answered your question well, thank you for the suggestions :D

I like to play so much with it, its use one my favorite card (Heartless Summoning). After some tests, have some cards i have in mind, but dont figure a slot, just throwing:

+1 Ob Nixilis, the Fallen - show to be one of the best wincon of deck

Rampaging Baloths seens a good payoff

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip Ramp and draw

Summoner's Pact sometime just need 1 creature to continue the go off

Let me know what you think about.
