Palace Siege

Enchantment

As Palace Siege enters the battlefeild, choose Khans or Dragons.

  • Khans — At the beginning of your upkeep, return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.
  • Dragons — At the beginning of your upkeep, each opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life.

Another good interaction is the cards that say when they enter choose one but give you 2 or more options. So for instance Retreat to Coralhelm , Retreat to Hagra , Retreat to Kazandu , Palace Siege , Frontier Siege , and Monastery Siege

You get to choose both. Another idea is Stuffy Doll choose 2 players for stuffy doll. And another thing to think about is yarok doesn't care if it's your things entering that triggers your stuff so cards like Polluted Bonds , Soul Warden , and Faerie Artisans are good here too

MizzMizz yes I think Epicurean of Blood is quite inconsistent. Felidar Sovereign is a win con by itself. Palace Siege is the same mana cost but if you choose dragons you gain two life anyways and opponent loses two life. Also Obzedat might very a better colander for this.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots can be a decent Commander, and you could run Rakdos, the Showstopper in the 99, but he requires some build-around. Cards like Subversion , Pyrohemia , Pestilence , and Palace Siege can help you get damage in to be able to cast him and use his mechanic to cast creatures for less. Some small CMC critters that tap to deal one damage are also good for getting him out onto the field. But this suite of cards can take up much needed slots, so consider carefully when building around him. Cheap, early drop aggro helps too, but you need to include at least around 7 to hope of getting one early enough to do what you want.

Hey I came here from the Deck Help. Definitely like the life gain +1 Epicure of Blood really pings slow. I suggest replacing it with Felidar Sovereign . Vampire Nighthawk and Palace Siege are very good choices.

Ok. So you said you want degenerate, so... here goes.

First off, Braids, Cabal Minion is banned. So you might want to remove it.

You should either be running the fetches, including the off-color ones like Flooded Strand , or run Suppression Field ; this also is a somewhat broader and more applicable answer to planeswalkers than The Elderspell , as it has non-planeswalker target. It puts a damper on the planeswalkers, but I feel like they might be better replaced with board wipes like Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Damnation or Toxic Deluge . When I played this general, I don't think I ran any creatures; they tend to be easily removed, but their effects may be replaced by enchantments/artifacts (ex: Thorn of Amethyst replaces Thalia, Guardian of Thraben ). Additionally, because Athreos, God of Passage is indestructible, it survives most board wipes. I recommend Erebos, God of the Dead as a second useful god; and in an Oloro meta, it seems particularly applicable. Sphere of Safety and Lightmine Field can serve as further deterrents to attackers; Maze of Ith also fits in well. Serra's Sanctum also is a powerhouse, if combined with a high-enough enchantment count. If you take the creature-less rout, I advise Night of Souls' Betrayal to remove the ability of elf- or dork-based decks to function. You might also consider Cursed Totem .

I see you have Vampiric Tutor in the maybe board. It's massively superior to Diabolic Tutor , if only because of its much lower mana cost; Imperial Seal is a strictly worse version I run in my Kess list, but it is also very good. Bitterblossom is a great inclusion, especially if you're running something like Contamination to mess with everyone's mana.

Mana Crypt is invaluable in cEDH decks. Fragmentize is a good white equivalent to Nature's Claim , especially in metas with low curves. Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace are good techs against graveyard decks like as Gitrog, with the added advantage of allowing a win with a Helm of Obedience activation.

I've never been impressed with 1-for-1s in EDH; by that token, Mortify and Doom Blade may be on the chopping block. Utter End is alright, simply because of its universality. I'd replace these with the above boardwipes, but I also suggest Pox or Smallpox . Pox has the additional advantage of severely lowering your opponents' life totals, so ad nauseum players tend to just cry, and your Painful Quandary becomes more oppressive. Stab Wound , which is another type of 1-for-1, might be better replaced with Palace Siege . Swords to Plowshares is the single 1-for-1 I highly recommend, because of its low cost, exile-based removal, and relatively small downside.

If you want to go full-blown, degenerate and expensive as a ****, I advise The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale and Chains of Mephistopheles .

Good luck! Stax em out.

Corvaxis on Rakdos's Revelry

bushido_man96 Thanks for the suggestions. I really like Spear Spewer , Thermo-Alchemist , Palace Siege , and Retreat to Hagra . Palace siege is the only higher CMC card of that bunch. Typically I want to try and keep the mana cost on the lower end, and stick to effects that would damage all opponents, so these fit that nicely. My goal is to keep in as many tutors as possible, so I'm thinking I should probably replace some of the mismatched cards like Hellhole Flailer and Hound of Griselbrand , unless do you think there's better replacements?
