Phyrexian Rager Discussion

Rivenor on When X Enters the Battlefield, Y

This looks like a pretty fun deck, I rather like Gonti ETB as a theme.

I would definitely take Rune-Scarred Demon and Sepulchral Primordial off the maybe list and into the deck. They are some of the strongest ETBs around and are definitely perfect for this deck.

Other interesting ETBs to consider:

Creature control:Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Slum Reaper: If your playgroup likes their indestructible/hexproof stuff. I would not run all of course but pick your favorite.

Revival:Puppeteer Clique, Entomber Exarch, GravediggerClique is one of my favorite creatures period, really handy to have. Exarch offers options on ETB and Gravedigger is a classic but his relatively low cost can be really nice.

Card Draw:Phyrexian Rager, Phyrexian GargantuaThough they can deal a bit of damage to you but Black does not really care about that these critters can refill your hand nicely.

Other:Netherborn Phalanx: For both playing and tutoring. Can really hurt with a Panharmonicon in play.

You should run an Ophiomancer, probably taking out Phyrexian Rager to make room for it. Not only is Ophiomancer a great defensive card to buy you time, but its token will allow for free sacrifice for when you have already flipped Liliana or Liliana is not on the field. Also, consider Nekrataal to add both an extra source of removal and an extra expendible creature to your deck.

this deck is really cool and original! a few suggestions:

-I think signets like Orzhov Signet are a bit better than the borderposts if you want fixing, especially because they also ramp you a bit. -18 lands seems a little low, you could maybe trim some of your lower-impact cards like Glaring Aegis, Arashin Cleric, Azorius Arrester or Rescue to make your deck a bit more consistent -have you thought about Cloudshift and/or Ghostly Flicker? They both seem good replacements for Rescue -other cards to consider:Kor Skyfisher, Dreamstalker, Dinrova Horror, Phyrexian Rager

In my opinion, what a deck that forces people to sac wants is a)tokens b)cheap cantrip creatures c)recursion. A) Ophiomancer, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Awakening Zone. B) Solemn Simulacrum, Elvish Visionary, Wall of Blossoms, Grim Haruspex, Phyrexian Rager. C) Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Golgari Thug, Doomed Necromancer, Apprentice Necromancer, Hell's Caretaker.

Like the others said, you also NEED some ramp up in this. I would also say to consider cutting some of your higher cmc creatures in favor of cheaper cards or stronger cards (i.e. sheoldred)

I also see that you have a dictate and no Grave Pact. Sure, the BBB1 can be hard to pay, but with proper ramp and mana fixing it isn't a big deal.

Gurmag Angler is great for this deck. It's sort of control, and control needs a finisher. Also useful would be Tragic Slip. Cut True-Faith Censer, your deck has 0 humans and there's no upside. Chainer's Edict and it's counterparts are helpful. Murderous Compulsion and Reduce to Ashes are utter trash. Dusk Legion Zealot and March of the Drowned are useful. You don't need many creatures. Basically cut all of them for the Zealot and the Angler. Hierophant's Chalice is some solid ramp. Increase the number of Shard of Broken Glass. Lastly, add Phyrexian Rager.

I personally think Deathreap Ritual is too slow. Perhaps replace it with Phyrexian Rager for repeatable card draw, or Phyrexian Arena for consistent upkeep card draw.

I hadn't even looked at the list before I upvoted. Then I looked at the list. I love it! Might I suggest some Phyrexians to aid in the Cyber-Demonic Look? Body Snatcher, Diabolic Servitude, Flesh Reaver (looks like Pinky... not a great card though so Understandable if it's an auto out), No Rest for the Wicked, Soul Burn, Carnifex Demon, Enslave, Nested Ghoul, Phyrexian Rager, Planar Portal or Planar Bridge. Of course these are merely theme suggestions. Overall I love the look of this deck.
