Phyrexian Devourer Discussion

Boza on Ability challenge

Well, I went for a static trigger or game-state trigger, similar to the one on Phyrexian Devourer .

In light of the new revelations that the trigger does not work as intended, I will use the opprtunity to correct the wording and submit an additional card to flesh out the mechanic.

Bellow from Beyond
Enchantment - Common

Collide - You gain life equal to twice the number of creature cards in your graveyard. (While this spell and another one with the same converted mana cost are on the stack, they collide.)

Return ~ to your hand: Return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand.

And the rare/mythic for this cycle:

Ninja Storm
Instant - Mythic

Create X 2/2 blue and black Human Ninja tokens. Those creatures gain shadow until your next turn.

Collide - Return this spell to your hand after it resolves. (While this spell and another one with the same converted mana cost are on the stack, they collide.)

You only realize the shadows have engulfed you after you have already been done in.

So as the other thread stated the meter is garbage but i do notice this is a very casual deck, first off this is only a two color deck fetch land are just going to slow you down scrap em, second, YOUR IN BLACK run necropotence, pairs with blue very well for card advantage amd its also just kinda broken, then lasly choose from a plethora of wincons either related to milling or not for end game support in case straight mill does not work, one of my favorites is mikeaus, the unhallowed+ Triskelion then you throw in a Phyrexian Devourer and a Necrotic Ooze . Buried Alive never hurts and throw in a Victimize for good measure and bam your pretty deadly. Some other cards to consider, Spark Double , Ashiok, Dream Render , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Sinister Sabotage , Soothsaying , and as you said mill is not super strong so wy not lock the board down with cards like Winter Orb , Static Orb , Stasis , or even a creature like Sheoldred, the Whispering One, can hold your opponents down while you mill them out, well thats about all i got for now let me know if you have any questions on what i said and good luck!this comander looks fun!

Triskelion is useful. Also Phyrexian Devourer will win the game for you if you get it out. Using above cards and putting in Necrotic Ooze also makes a good combo.

Using Phyrexian Devourer can give you a lot of zombies by keeping his sac condition on the stack. Just keep exiling cards until its high enough for you, then keeping its trigger on the stack, activate Gisa's and sac it that way.

This deck is pure fun. This primer is very useful and is the most renown for a strong Jarad (is the inspiration of all the other and more up to date primers). Not suitable for cedh, but very consistent in a friendly/competitive meta. The combo lines are various, so you win in many different ways, it depends on how many times you got disrupted. All the lines are supported by jarad (single combo with Phyrexian Devourer ). I registered to thank the developer of the deck for his effort. I hope to see this list updated one day!

Such an interesting deck concept lol. Magus of the coffees goes infinite with Sword of the Paruns also you can get another combo by adding Phyrexian Devourer with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion + Phyrexian Devourer :)

Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion in the yard usually means you can exile enough cards to machine gun down the world, but i play EDH.

I'm really happy about the Scribnibblers combo, though.

So i see you have sheoldred and Jarad, but some cards that really make those nuts are Phyrexian Devourer (jarad can wipe a table with this) and Triskelion + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Fauna Shaman can put the right cards in your hand and the grave. Necrotic Ooze is insane in grave decks, and another card that can cause gravyard decks to win on the spot is Buried Alive . All that should take a little pressure of the genesis win con and provide more win con outlets, but i also play a competetive meren so i understand im a little biased towards the reanimation side of things. Life from the loam is one of my favorite golgari cards (i know its mono green, but we all know where it goes lol) so congrats on this badass looking page btw well done! Im a little jelous lol. Good luck!
