Negator of Phyrexia

Planeswalker - Negator

+2: Search your library for a non-land card. ~ deals five damage to you.

0: ~ deals damage equal to its loyalty counters to target creature or player. ~ deals damage equal to half of its loyalty counters to you.

-2: Destroy target Legendary Creature or Planeswalker. Sacrifice two permanents.

-10: Exile all creatures. You create an X/X Artifact Horror Creature Token, with X equal to the number of creatures exiled in this way.

Negator of Phyrexia may be your commander.


The card I attempted to convert is Phyrexian Negator. I think its a little overpowered. I love it anyway.

Same challenge: Turn your favourite creature into a Planeswalker.

Coward_Token on Grixis!Zedruu

(I would add a proper community card but that feature seems to be malfunctioning right now.)

Farly straightforward, this card would mostly be Zedruu the Greathearted (although a different character, not simply her gone evil or something) with a casting cost of and an activation cost of . In EDH, this could lead to some fun usage of cards like the following:

(I realize you can basically already do this with any Grixis commander + e.g. Bazaar Trader, but that's a bit less straightforward.)

I'm unsure what would be suitable for its upkeep ability. Just copying Zedruu's straight off isn't too inappropriate, as drawing is certainly associated with black and life gain isn't too far out either, but that's kinda boring. Replacing the life gain with something negative towards opponents like milling, discard or plain life loss proportional to the amount of gifted permanent could be one option that's more in line with the color change (thought the negative effects would probably targeted in order to preserve some political potential). Putting a +1/+1 counter per gift on Zedruu the Grixishearted to take advantage of commander damage could also work (especially when combined with auras like Herald of Torment), in which case you could also change power/toughness from the original's 2/4 to 4/2 to signal greater aggression.

For the sake of flavor its subtype would be Horse Djinn, with the artwork depicting a djinn with a mare's head, wearing a mouth-covering veil.

Feedback would be welcome, especially on ways to make Grixis!Zedruu more distinct from the original while still fulfilling the basic function of giving out torturous black cards, in addition to the blue and red ones they both share.

(A version containing green could also be made for the sake of giving that color a chance to show off its painful cards, in which case the creature in question should probably have monkey paws.)

The two cards I'm least in love with here areCryptolith Fragment  Flip and Exsanguinate

I feel like you're trying to be budget here, but I'm still going to suggest four Wasteland, it'll help you keep control of the field.

The other card I'd suggest is Phyrexian Totem It's a Phyrexian Negator that isn't always a target. Played smart it would be far superior to the fragment.

Cabal Coffers would be good in this deck since you're running almost exclusively swamps.

Four black fetchland would be good, but they aren't required.

Hey! This rules. Got some ideas...

LOL, what a deck. Thanks for being silly.

Boza on Most Flavorful Phyrexian Cards?

2 years ago

I would say go for old school Phyrexian cards. Phyrexian Dreadnought is iconic af. Phyrexian Revoker is actually qite useful. Phyrexian Negator, if only for the flavor text. Phyrexian Metamorph is super cool.

also, Phyrexian Devourer + Necrotic Ooze combo ftw.

Phyrexian Reaper wins my award for "most metal phyrexian"

"For example is an example." Hue hue.

I think you sorely undersold Dark Ritual. Describing a card as "better than nothing" really doesn't do it justice when it's in fact massively powerful in any 60-card format. If you think Necropotence is any good at all, I can promise you a first-turn Necro is better. If you weren't playing Standard in 1998, you don't know how many games Suicide Black soared to victory on the wings of a first-turn Phyrexian Negator or third-turn Hatred.

Dark Ritual isn't just some oddity from the colour pie of the past, it also isn't printed anymore because it's too damn good.

If you're looking to make this really zombie tribal, you'll need the zombie lords. I see Lord of the Accursed and Diregraf Colossus (somewhat), but I'd recommend adding in Death Baron (he's a bit pricey for some people), Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief and Zombie Master. If you're looking to continue the discard subtheme, then Necrogen Mists will really hurt players, forcing them to essentially skip their draw steps. Additionally, I cannot recommend Phyrexian Arena enough...unless I'm recommending Necropotence aka the Skull aka the best card draw engine in the game. It does nonbo a bit with your discard theme, but eh, it's still Necro.

Thinking about ways to get rid of Demonic Pact is harder. The card's basically a flavor choice, and not even close to good in EDH, but I guess you could try trolly shenanigans like Phyrexian Negator, Smokestack, Possessed Portal (works hilariously well with Necro), Ratchet Bomb, All Is Dust, Claws of Gix (which is likely your best option), Curse of the Cabal (which is bad), Damping Engine shenanigans, and Forbidden Ritual. Aka bad cards and, in my opinion, if you're forcing yourself to play bad cards to justify playing a bad card which is in your deck because of flavor, you likely should just cut the offending card. Up to you, however.

Phyrexian Obliterator isn't the same as Phyrexian Negator. Obliterator is basically a, "I dare you to cast that Blasphemous Act or swing into me" card, so I don't see how it hurts him at all.

Toxic Deluge is a card I don't think you should run without, as far as suggestions go. The life cost just has to be tailored to the highest power you want to kill, and it costs far less than many of your other options.

Beseech the Queen is a nice, cheap tutor that you may be able to take advantage of. Cruel Tutor is another if you don't care about price so much.
