You maybe should just go and try a boggle deck with a splash of black for Phyresis

Not gonna lie I was seriously considering using him as my general and now I'm even more inspired!

Ya need Torpor Orb, and maybe Sundial of the Infinite could work too.

Since you're winning by commander damage, I would give him some voltron cards such as Tainted Strike, Aqueous Form, Assault Strobe, Temur Battle Rage, Clout of the Dominus, Blood Mist, Phyresis, and Psychotic Fury.

Autumn's Veil and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord seem like an autoinclude since you are building a huge Varolz. Also, Phyresis or Glistening Oil could work well

Windfall is a great, budget card for this deck, K34, I just didn't know about it until now. As soon as I can, though, I will find a place for Windfall and Phyresis in this deck. Thank you for the suggestions!

You know what's a really nice way to lose friends? Equipping a Grafted Exoskeleton onto or enchanting Nekusar with Phyresis. Wound Reflection is also really nice.

More wheels are always nice. Windfall, Time Reversal, Winds of Change, Wheel and Deal, Magus of the Wheel, Teferi's Puzzle Box, etc.

More forced draw/damage you can run are Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Well of Ideas, Otherworld Atlas, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Iron Maiden, etc.

Since you're running Price of Knowledge, you also can consider cards like Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Devastation Tide for the purposes of filling up your opponents' hands for maximum damage.

I personally do not see how Notion Thief synergizes at all with Nekusar, he may just be control, or I may just be completely stupid.

First of all, sorry for the loooooooooooooooooong time without posting here, guys. I was really busy with college.

vbfabled on Most Flavorful Phyrexian Cards?

2 weeks ago

Hey guys!

So I'm actually here to get your help for a friend of mine. See, he's new to Magic and is already super Vorthos-y. In particular, he immediately got super into the art and story of the Phyrexians, describing them as "Metal as f***", pun probably not intended.

So now he's decided he wants to build a super-flavorful Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck.

So here's the question: what are the most phyrexian cards you can think of, especially considering flavor and art (he also loves mtg art)

Already considered:

-Phyrexian Unlife

-Phyrexian Rebirth

-Phyresis

-All Praetors

Thanks!

One of the problems I've had when playing wheels, and which you allude to in your first post, is having a fist-full of useful cards, but your wheel effects would force you to discard. Library of Leng fixes this problem. You can "discard" the cards you want to the top of your library, dump the cards that are worthless to you, thereby engineering a better hand.

Helm of the Ghastlord gives you a number of advantages. Like Curiosity, it allows you to draw obscene amounts of cards, and combos with Niv-Mizzet. However, more importantly, it forces your opponents to discard every card they draw. This card can win you the game--you play a wheel effect, they discard their hand, yet are unable to ever draw to replace.

Sigil of Sleep can be helpful against creature-based decks.

Phyresis makes a good finisher, but is a bit gimmicky--you can easily kill the entire board (particularly if Tefari's puzzle box finishes players on their upkeep), but it also gives your opponents a "free" set of card draws if removed before dealing lethal infect damage (unless others are playing infect).

Personally, I would recommend cutting cards that damage yourself, such as Phyrexian Tyranny and Spiteful Visions. In my experience, the speed at which they kill other players does not justify how easy they make you to kill.
