Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Discussion

Shimtalia on Wild Ride

Since I can't figure out how else to display them, here is my "acquire" list that will replace other cards in the deck:

Chromatic Lantern - Craterhoof Behemoth - In the Web of War - Mycoloth - Ob Nixilis, the Fallen - Purphoros, God of the Forge - Woodland Cemetery

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled should be on the same plane as Ob Nixilis, the Fallen (Zendikar) since that was before he regained his spark.

Arcaneful on Ob Nixilis the Fallen or ...

2 months ago

Hey all.

I'm working on a mono black control deck and can't decide who to use as my general. Here's some pro's and cons of the two:

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen:


-Is a badass card. Look at the art!

-His ability if VERY powerful, being able to pump himself up and make someone lose 3 life

-Is a voltron finisher on his own in a mono black shell


-No evasion built in

-5 mana for a 3/3 is eh

Now for Kalitas

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet:


-EXILES CREATURES OF OPPONENTS WHEN THEY DIE! Hoses my brother's Meren deck for sure haha.

-Has life link to help with life swings

-Makes an army just by playing kill spells


-Huge target on his back

-Again, no evasion

-Horrid against creature light decks (there are only one of these in my meta but who knows for the future)

Any help would be appreciated!

Edit: If you feel strongly about another general lemme know. I'm flexible with what general I run. Made a basic decklist currently lead by Kalitas but totally open to change:Decklist here

Post Edit Edit?: Was looking over EDHREC again and found Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief. What do you all think of her?

skoobysnackz on Retreat to Oboro

2 months ago

Birds of Paradise isn't doing much for you here, you have 0 cards above cmc 3. I really love these infinite landfall combo decks. I myself tried out a Ruin Ghost + Retreat to Coralhelm deck and I can tell you right now if you need a mana dork, Lotus Cobra is the way to go. Especially since you are running 7 fetches and 4 Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, but again, I don't think it's necessary in the deck as it stands. I'm also not sure you need 10 "put a land from your hand onto the battlefield" cards, 8 should be more than plenty and I would replace one slot with a fourth Sylvan Scrying so you essentially have 8 Oboros and 8 of the aforementioned creatures. Lastly, I get that once you get the infinite combo going it doesn't matter how fast the wincon works, but I think you should at least consider having Ob Nixilis, the Fallen in the sideboard in case they manage to Surgical Extraction one of your combo pieces (I personally love him and would put him in the mainboard even if it slows down the deck a bit, he's just such a flavor win for me). If you can't get the infinite combo online, at least he will make short work of your opponent with all the straight up landfall triggers your deck will be throwing at them. This seems like a fun combo, very original and flavorful, Nice job!

Have you considered Splendid Reclamation? Just imagine what combos can be done late game. Nissa, Vital Force's emblem would have you draw how many cards? And you could probably play most of them as well. Courser of Kruphix, gain all the life. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, kill target player, put how many +1/+1 counters on him? Ulvenwald Hydra would be unstoppable. And do I even need to mention Undergrowth Champion, Rampaging Baloths, or Oran-Rief Hydra? Too late, I already did.

And don't forget, Amulet of Vigor would make sure all 20-40 of those lands enter untapped.

Leptys on gitrog monster dredge fun

3 months ago

Darkblast, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug might prove fine cards to dredge with, as Gitrog loves to dredge cards (they mill into lands, drawing more cards).

With the dredge plan, reanimation effects become way stronger especially with your creature base. Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy etc. will prove to be very powerful effects when you can reanimate a Sidisi, Undead Vizier or an Avenger of Zendikar.

Also, try getting all the cycling lands you can find (Polluted Mire, Barren Moor, Blasted Landscape etc.), they have amazing synergy with Gitrog and Life from the Loam.

If you want to ramp faster into frog, additional 1-mana elves like Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow and Fyndhorn Elves are all good turn 1 rampers. Also, cheap mana rocks like Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone and even cards like Fractured Powerstone will make it way easier to land Gitrog early. Try not to play rocks that cost more than 2 mana though, as they are usually played after getting Gitrog in the field when usually lands are what you wanna play to ramp up.

And of course, if you ever want to build around your Dakmor Salvage combo, any Eldrazi that shuffles itself and the graveyard into your library (like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth) work to give you infinite mana with something like Skirge Familiar. For symmetrical life drain, you can use either Exsanguinate or Faith of the Devoted from the new set. For some less cutthroat win conditions, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen does work as a player killer when you cast Splendid Reclamation with your huge graveyard.

Also, I guarantee you that Gitrog can keep up with his land sacrificing easily, even if you cut 20 lands from your deck straight out. This is due to him drawing you tons of cards, and of course due to the land recursion you already have in the deck. So if you ever feel like needing more slots for spells, you can very safely cut lands for more card slots with your current land count.

Just a couple of small tips, hopefully they are of some use. Cheers!
