Polluted Bonds Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Pocket Sand

Thanks for the suggestions gdm1989. I have considered a few of the new Ixalan cards, but really only Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Search for Azcanta  Flip, and maybe Dire Fleet Ravager seemed like potential adds.

The problem with cards like Boneyard Parley and Sepulchral Primordial is their cmc. This deck relies heavily on Duskmantle Seer when I can't attack, so anything over 4 cmc has to be in the deck for a very specific reason. If I do add in a re-animator package I would be considering much cheaper cmc options (though Boneyard Parley will likely be finding its way into my Gonti, Lord of Luxury deck The Sting).

Polluted Bonds seems like an intriguing option, but I'd have to see where/if it fits into the deck.

With the new ixalan set out I think sygg got some new toys I would add Boneyard Parley, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Sword-Point Diplomacy, Raiders' Wake, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, and Polluted Bonds For a little bit of draw power and defensive purposes. There are some other ideas I can suggest but hopefully those can help you out :)

Hey Spirit! Good to see that you're doubling down on enchantments! I know you're going budget, but you may want some of these!

You have 17 Enchantments in your deck, 7 of them being creatures, +1 for Pharika. ~1/8 of your cards are enchantments. I think you could use more!

Defense of the Heart, Bear Umbra, Rancor, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Phyrexian Arena, Erebos, God of the Dead, Polluted Bonds, Cryptolith Rite, Tainted Remedy, Evolutionary Leap, Spidersilk Armor, Animate Dead, Burgeoning, and Deathreap Ritual are all pretty solid cards around or under $10 that would fit well in your deck.

Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Shaper's Sanctuary, Harvester of Souls, Abundance, and Skullclamp all help you draw cards pretty easily. I would suggest getting a few of them.

Scute Mob, Managorger Hydra, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled are a few creatures that can get pretty huge. Blade of the Bloodchief and Ancestral Mask will make some stuff pretty big too.

I have particularly found Kruphix's Insight to be pretty good at digging for enchants and filling your graveyard.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, you have 2 Diabolic Tutor on your list right now!

I really like this list, it looks like a mono black hate bears list (which is sort of what I am running-Monoblack Hatebears, I need to update it at some point because I have refined it a lot, but I appreciate suggestions). If you are going the Death and taxes route, I would recommend:

Painful Quandary

Polluted Bonds

I would recommend Disciple of Bolas as well, many of my friends argue that it is the most powerful card in my list, at least in my deck it makes for good re-occurring card draw and life gain.

Your list has definitely given me some ideas for my list! Thanks! +1

I would suggest either adding Athreos, God of Passage or switching to him as the commander. I run him, cleric tribal, with as much extort as I cam, and self sacrifice effects. Bontu's Monument is a good add, as is Bloodchief Ascension and Polluted Bonds

Jayjayrod on Mogis: A Very Silly Commander

Hey fabiomarley, thanks for the suggestions!

Yeah, my mana ramp how it is here isn't great, but I've updated what's in my deck since I last updated it on here. School's just been keeping me busy, but I'll update this list as soon as I get time.

And I have added cards like Polluted Bonds which is really fun. And I used to have cards like Zo-Zu the Punisher and Ankh of Mishra in here, but I felt that it hurt me a little too much alongside what I already have.

As for cards like Oppression, I have a whole deck based on discard for Mogis if you wanna check it out. It's really fun, and I find discard more effective when that's what the deck is centered around.

But I really like Ward of Bones, so I'll have to check that out!

Thanks again for your feedback!
