Phyrexian Devourer Discussion

BodhiQL on Exit Light, Enter Night- Whisper EDH

SladeLeStrange As a commander, at least for this deck, she isn't very good. She costs 6 mana, and 3 of it has to be Black. This is important because with a Winter Orb or similar effect in play, most of my mana comes from Artifacts, which usually just makes colorless. Whisper, Blood Liturgist is the commander only because he synergies with my main combo, allowing me to reanimate Necrotic Ooze with Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion in the graveyard to win. Visara the Dreadful isn't played in the deck because she's slow, but also can only kill one creature per turn rotation. Magus of the Abyss can kill a creature from each of my opponents field, to compare. She also gets shut down by Static Orb or Storage Matrix, whereas Whisper, Blood Liturgist doesn't care, as he only needs to tap once to win. Visara is just too slow and doesn't do enough.

Paradox Engine, Eater of the Dead (you need Brainspoil to tutor him for sure), Phyrexian Devourer (his ability will only go on the stack once so once his power hits 7 go crazy and make him big for one last gigantic mill), and Intruder Alarm can all close out games. Mesmeric Orb is pricy but can easily know I out a quarter of everyone’s deck when played turn 2. Thousand-Year Elixir May also be worth a shot.

Undead Alchemist with Altar of the Brood is almost infinite.

But I love not expensive things. Take a look at Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Sword of the Paruns, Bonehoard, Mortivore, and Slagwurm Armor. Stitcher Geralf is also fun.

You also may consider milling yourself every once in a while to use Ever After, Necropolis, Stitch Together, and Treasure Cruise.

If you thought even some of my ideas were worthwhile then you may want to consider looking st my deck for more card suggestions. !!!DANGER: YOU ARE ENTERING A MILLZONE!!!

nlabelle Well Necrotic Ooze when copied by The Mimeoplasm or on the battlefield says:

"it has all activated abilities of all creature cards in all graveyards."

So the key cards we're aiming to have the abilities of are Phyrexian Devourer and Walking Ballista this allows us to then use Phyrexian Devourer's ability of:

"Exile the top card of your library: Put X +1/+1 counters on Phyrexian Devourer, where X is the exiled card's converted mana cost."

Due to neither Mimeo or Necrotic Ooze actually being Phyrexian Devourer we end up bypassing it's first ability of:

"When Phyrexian Devourer's power is 7 or greater, sacrifice it."

So we're exiling our deck and gaining counters on our Necrotic Ooze/Mimeo which also has the ability of Walking Ballista which allows us to:

"Remove a +1/+1 counter from Walking Ballista: It deals 1 damage to any target."

It seems pretty almost Rube Goldberg-y but we have cards like Buried Alive and Survival of the Fittest and others to more easily assemble the combo. In practice while you probably will go for Hulk more often it's no where near as bad as it seems.

Hopefully I explained it well. If not or if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Hey all. So recently I decided to make a Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH deck. It started out as a pile of random black cards until I discovered a combo that I think can make Whisper at least a little more competitive. Basically the goal is to cast Buried Alive to dump Necrotic Ooze, Phyrexian Devourer, and Triskelion. Then reanimate Nooze with Whisper or another similar effect. Exile your library with Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer and ping everyone to death with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion . Although this is a widely known combo, I have yet to see it used with Whisper deck. In its current iteration, the deck (linked below) is alright, however it is wildly inconsistent. Goldfished games can have wins on Turn 3-5 (optimal) with a good opening hand, but can also last until like Turn 15-18. In these games I am usually just sitting there clicking Next Turn and hoping to topdeck a Tutor, Buried Alive, or a creature to sac to Whisper. This is where you, the reader comes in. The current list is just cards I currently have available for the deck (some of my rocks are being used elsewhere) but I am aware of most cEDH staples. However, if anyone has any suggestions of cards I possibly haven't thought about, or (preferably) wants to work side by side with me to make Whisper a decent(ish) general for cEDH. Im looking for people who have at least a little experience with cEDH but any help would be greatly appreciated. Or, maybe this is just a stupid idea and Whisper has no place here at all. Anyway, here's what I have so far, and thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Mental Misstep might be a better card, as there is no inherent card disadvantage, and it still hits a ton.

Dispel, Ponder, Preordain, and Spell Pierce would be my other additions, dropping Tooth and Nail, Cruel Tutor, mikeaus, the unhallowed, Beseech the Queen, and Triskelion, it would lower your curve, and up the general playability against other Flash-Hulk Lists, Loops lists with Thrasios, Triton Hero, Tainted Shimmer Zur, and Yidris storm lists.

The extra cantrips are useful when smooting out draws, and Beseech the Queen/Cruel Tutor are some pretty bad tutors, and Tooth and Nail sucks as a cEDH wincon.

I also suggest switching your current Hermit Druid wincon from Laboratory Maniac to Necrotic Ooze, and dropping Phyrexian Devourer for the classic Wall of Roots, Blighted Bat, Devoted Druid, Channeler Initiate, and Walking Ballista win condition

Moving to white with Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver could also improve your draws and ability to protect for combo (Silence, Swords to Plowshares, Grand Abolisher, Path to Exile, etc.).

Selling some stuff out of my collection, everything should be marked below TCG low as of today. Shipping is $0.50 in PWE at buyer's risk or $3 for tracking and insurance. If you are interested in multiple cards, if it's over $50 I will give a discount. Thanks for looking!

Omg, Phyrexian Devourer appears to be one of those old un-playtested cards. Thank you for this.

I do like Blasphemous Act a lot because in my meta, there are a lot of token decks so it's easy for Kresh the Bloodbraided to get big, due to so many tokens dying. Then I cast Blasphemous Act and everything but Kresh the Bloodbraided dies. It also works with Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of War and Peace because they prevent Kresh from taking damage from it. I agree with you on the point of Dark Ritual, and the others too. I thought I'd put in Swiftfoot Boots, but I guess not.
