Olivia Voldaren Discussion

jpermar on Rakdos, Lord's Downward Spiral

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:

Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:

  • direct damage is now at lower cmc
  • -1 Ramp
  • +1 protection/haste
  • +2 tutor
  • +5 draw
  • +1 anti-control
  • -4 Creature removal
  • -2 graveyard hate
  • -1 discard
  • -1 extra attack
  • -1 lifegain/recursion
  • +1 removal

So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.

And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

Varchild struggles because blinking is more of white's thing. Varchild seems sweet... but it needs white to really shine. Still looks like a fun brew.
Olivia Voldaren can Mind Control vampires, and her ping turns creatures into vampires. MindTouch > ExileTouch, and doesn't require giving her deathtouch. Not that there aren't corner cases where Kumano, Master Yamabushi wins out for utility (such as his ability to ping face which olivia lacks), but rather that Olivia Voldaren is superior in 9/10 situations. Of your suggestions, Kumano, Master Yamabushi still seems the most interesting to me. Being able to use him with Braid of Fire to just spit damage at people in the late game makes for quite the finisher, and it's right in flavor for what red wants to do.
Marton Stromgald is a 4 mana 1/1 with no protection, no evasion, and no way to win the game except by combat, which he doesn't even buff himself for. For him to be good, you need a ton of creatures, some enchant/equip to make him unblockable/indestructible, and for your opponent to have significantly less creatures and/or weaker creatures than yours. Basically: marton's only good if you're already winning by a landslide anyway. Krenko, Mob Boss generates his own tokens, and keeps generating exponentially more of them. If he's not dealt with, he will eventually win a game all by himself, no A+B required. Marton will never win a game without the help of a 4-5 card setup, minimum. That's... not impressive. I really think marton's a dud here, but good on anyone who believes they can make him work.

The issue that Kumano, Master Yamabushi runs into is that he's competing with Olivia Voldaren for ping-control. Since black is much better than red at granting deathtouch and lifelink (the two most relevant abilities to give him), Voldaren tends to win out. He DOES seem sweet though.

Might be too many lords, 4 Captivating and 4 Stromkirk seems like overkill. I'm not a fan of Bloodline Keeper due to him being slow and Indulgent, I feel should probably be lower. More utility creatures are a good idea. If you want tempo then things like Viscera Seer , Bloodghast , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Olivia Voldaren and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet are all great. Worth mentioning: Stromkirk Noble is a crazy good 1-drop, despite not being black. I also feel like 4 Fatal Push is obligatory here. Kinda prefer Asylum Visitor over Zealots because I like hitting hard.

Land recommendations: Go big on fetches and run 1-2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . The Ghast and Nocturnus synergy is unreal. Could probably cut a Cavern or 2, perhaps a mutavault. 8 feches is plenty but if you can go to 9 or 10 do so.

Good luck, have a nice drink tonight if you know what I mean.

DrukenReaps on Commander deck for a beginner

Of the ones you mention Oloro is by far the most control oriented. A friend of mine built him as a pillow fort deck that allows cards like Twilight Prophet to slowly bleed his opponents out. You can really build any Esper control shell around him.

At your budget I would flat out avoid Kaalia. A lot of the meat of the deck, the angels/demons/dragons, usually don't cost too much money but the support to make the deck run smoothly without her in play can eat a budget pretty fast...

Scarab I think makes for an interesting one to head a mill deck. You mill out your opponents and grab their creatures with him as you go, lol. Mill itself is usually a bad win con in commander but it can feed your deck and allow things like Bloodchief Ascension to run away with the game. It can also feed your opponent's graveyard deck too so be careful if you go that way...

I've watched an Edgar pre-con take out a table of '75%' decks. It was mostly just luck but the deck can be really well tuned around low CMC vampires and is just as aggro as aggro can be. I think the control element to it is pretty weak so you may not like Edgar very much. It should be within your budget though.

Olivia Voldaren should also be doable within budget, even more so because she is only 2 colors. I don't really think of her as vampire tribal but more of a creature control deck. Get a lot of mana with things like Crypt Ghast or give her deathtouch with Basilisk Collar and just go to town.

Olivia Voldaren is a fun vampire card to play around with. Same with Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Rakish Heir and Vampiric Fury (a strong maybe for those last two. You can dive into the Innistrad block for a lot more vampires. The deck does look really unique and pretty good though. Looks like a lot of fun to play. +1 to you.

P.S. If you really want to Intangible Virtue
