Phyrexian Rager Discussion

redtwister on Burn the Land and the Hand

Okay, some thoughts:Sinkhole was never printed as a Common on MTGO, so outside of places that will let you play things banned online in paper tournaments (and therefore also Hymn to Tourach, which I would play in a hot second), it is not legal.

How do you deal with aggro decks that go wide or have hexproof? IMO, you need to address it either with a sweeper main or cheap deathtouch creatures plus some main deck edicts. Since you are already on the burn plan, 2-3 main deck Geth's Verdict seem perfect. Again, since you are on burn, maybe 2

I'm guessing most of your wincon is burn? I would consider Rancid Earth over Icequake. Once you hit Threshold, it is 1 damage to all creatures (mini-sweeper) and 1 damage to each player.

I think this is a deck that makes a really good case for Thermo-Alchemist, though if you do that you might want to add 4 Duress and drop the Rats. Phyrexian Rager as a 2-of seems less good than 2 Gurmag Angler.

I like the design though. It is a burnier version of my build.

Bit surprised to see no Corrupt, Tendrils of Corruption if you don't want to aim for the player.

Phyrexian Rager is nice, too, but not sure if it fits what you're trying to do.

I would prefer Vulturous Aven over Phyrexian Rager. It draws you one more card and automatically puts itself in the graveyard again so you can draw more cards with it.

Now we can use some puns related to Dominaria that we've held onto for a while. Like: Tsabo Tavoc held a party last night, it was a Phyrexian Rager.

Sorry. I read the card wrong. Phyrexian Rager is back in for Wirewood Savage.

Thanks for the suggestion! I added Dragon Egg to the deck for Phyrexian Rager.

This deck looks like a blast to play! In 1v1 matches it'll be a beast - a flipped Accursed Witch  Flip has great synergy with all of the targeted discard you're running.

As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.

Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.

Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.
