Grey Merchant of Asphodel could be good in this deck as well as Phyrexian Obliterator if you have the budget for it. You're also a bit lacking in disruption, and might benefit from the addition of some kill spells and hand hate like Thoughtseize (not budget) or Duress (Budget).

A cool suggestion indeed. The only problem is that it will be very hard to catch an opponent off guard with it since it will be in plain sight in your graveyard. If they see you have a Phyrexian Obliterator in the bin, they simply won't attack into you. If you want to use it offensively, they won't block. For this reason, it can be seen as ": give Lazav unblockable". This is a little too expensive, especially if we compare that to our other evasion tools (Invisible Stalker, Dimir Infiltrator, Looter il-Kor, Key to the City). If you want an element of surprise, you need an instant-speed way of putting the Obliterator into the graveyard (Entomb, Key to the City), and this seems a little too clunky in terms of mana management for a one-time blow-out. My deck tries to be as mana-efficient as possible, but I can see the Obliterator included in other lists that have a bigger focus on cool combat tricks.

Have you considered Phyrexian Obliterator? Seems like that could really put people in some tight spots. Since his ability can be activated like an Instant, if anyone chump blocks him, Obliterate them >:)

MAJOR DECK EDIT:

I took out Expedition Map and replaced it with Epic Confrontation and more Prey Upon for more consistency, i noticed that the green route was more fruitful and yielded better results.

same goes for my inclusion of Phyresis, i noticed that my obliterator needed more ways to become perfected.

the land base was a bit inconsistent and so i bumped it up to 23 lands by taking out Ichorclaw Myr, i didn't want to have to take out any more creatures, but the land was more important. lastly i switched an Arena for Inkmoth Nexus, Now the deck is much more consistent and is easier to get out Phyrexian Obliterator to go off by turn 6

TheDuggernaught on Selling Most of Collection

3 weeks ago

Hello, my car recently crossed the rainbow bridge to the great garage in the sky. As such, I need money to buy a new one. I am selling the vast majority of my modern staples to help fund this. My trade binder is all out of date, but my collection is here: here. Please open the full document in google sheets, as there are multiple sheets -- 1 for each binder, and 1 binder each for red, blue, green, black, white, colorless, lands, and multicolored.

Below is a list of cards I was able to think of off the top of my head. Please let me know if you are interested in if there is no listed price and we can figure out a fair price. I will try to update it as cards are bought. Most prices should be below tcgplayer low and I am open to negotiations -- especially if you buy a large number of cards. Cards should all be between LP and MP at worst as I keep them in sleeves when being used, and in binders when not in use. Pictures and sets upon request.

I guess Wurmcoil Engine could work if you want to focus more on late game wins. It seems like a win-more card to me though.

Batterskull lets whatever you put it on swing and defend while gaining life and causing tough decisions by your opponent. If you swing with a 9/9 Obliterator with Vigilance and Lifelink, it just seems like an auto win if un-answered. They either block it and sac permanents, or take it and you have 9 more life plus it can still block.

Considering it's a 4-color deck, I don't think it's realistic to think you could consistently cast Phyrexian Obliterator. Relying on Chromatic Lantern to be able to cast it just isn't good imo.

As for what to take out...I'm not a huge fan of Black Market, as I feel it would be too hard to get value from it. Also, Contagion Engine seems like a strict upgrade to Core Prowler. Other than that, I would probably just take out some of the weaker infect creatures if you wanted to add other cards.
