Oppression Discussion

Nice deck, I like the combos you've set up. You might need Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir to stop your opponents from disrupting your combos. I should just point out that Deadeye Navigator flickering Cloud of Faeries doesn't trigger Circu.

Training Grounds is really helpful for your commander's ability cost.

Mindslicer and Myojin of Night's Reach are great to clear out opponents' hands first. Stronghold Rats and Oppression sustain the discard. Warped Devotion can clear out their hands after a mass bounce. Notion Thief could be useful to stay ahead on card draw, especially with wheel effects. Archfiend of Ifnir can clear out opponents' creatures if you're also discarding.

I would suggest cutting Dread since it is costly for the effect. Kumena's Awakening also doesn't seem worth it because you might not have 10 permanents. Havengul Lich and Rite of Replication also don't really contribute to the strategy. You could instead try Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial to make use of opponents' discards.

You could try Maralen of the Mornsong with Nebuchadnezzar since you can remove the card after they tutor it.

Sorry for the double post, but you could also run grave hate cards like Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt, Crook of Condemnation, Silent Gravestone, and Leyline of the Void. Then use cards like Mindslicer, Duress, Oppression, Words of Waste, Hymn to Tourach, Painful Quandary, etc. to shred his hand and exile all of his auras. He might not like you for that though.

Pretty old school. Nice! Maybe replace some of your spells and effects that target single creatures or players with some discard effects since you have a strong discard sub-theme.

Waste Not, Necrogen Mists, Megrim, Oppression, and Words of Waste all come to mind.

Happy playing!

Suns_Champion Thank you :)

Strionic Resonator seems very potent here. And cheers! Possessed Portal does a lot of work in the misery department. Coupling it with Oppression is particularly nasty. And that's a terrific idea regarding Necropotence. I had originally thought Portal was errata'd to only work on your draw step, which was originally why I didn't include Necro to begin with.

But that's definitely going in - along with The Abyss once I figure out how to afford it.

Scavenger Grounds is very nifty! I'll see if I can make room for it, and possibly Rishadan Port

Yeah I decided against Mind Over Matter.

I don't want to be too oppresive, so I'm leaning against Oppression.

I added a lot more artifacts, especially ramp, so I'm still liking Darksteel Forge.

I think I like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre better.

Why is The Gitrog Monster so good in this deck?

"I would only use it to untap. I'm a good person" -- That's what I'm afraid of. Mind Over Matter is a degenerate combo with Damia for this precise reason. Tapping down lands and creatures is rude but doesn't have nearly the capacity for oppression.

Speaking of Oppression, Oppression. You get hurt by it a lot less than your opponents.

Speaking of getting hurt, I'd recommend some heavy changes to your "protection" category:

-You don't have enough artifacts to make Darksteel Forge good. Ditch it.

-Gaea's Blessing only shuffles your yard in if you mill it. Ditch it. Replace it with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

-Similarly, Elixir of Immortality, Mnemonic Nexus and Quest for Ancient Secrets aren't worth a card. Use Learn from the Past and Repopulate instead; they replace themselves. Those with Laboratory Maniac and the Eldrazi titan should be enough. Throw in an Eternal Witness if you're still concerned. Heck, throw it in anyway; it's a good card.

Once you have a more refined list, hit me up -- I have some of these cards just lying around.

EDIT: Almost forgot, you're going to want The Gitrog Monster

Oppression is an alright card. But I find my build already is fairly light on card draw (understandable because of the colors). And in my meta I have a few decks which generate tons of card advantage. I will think about it. it will be added to the "suggestions side board"

Very nice deck, I'm in the process of converting my TL Alesha into a full fledged big girl edh and one card that I've found has always worked wonders for me is Oppression. The discard on cast is usually an advantage for us and hoses most other combo decks an severely hampers pretty much anything outside of a dedicated reanimators.
