Possessed Portal

Artifact

If a player would draw a card, that player skips that draw instead.

At the end of each turn, each player sacrifices a permanent unless he or she discards a card.

Strangelove on Chainer Fun

3 months ago

Saw your post on /r/edh. I've been tweaking a casual mono-black Belzenlok for a while now (...bascially Necrologia -on-a-commander into every version of Rise of the Dark Realms ).

Chainer's game plan should be something like... Ramp > Control > Reanimate.

Focus on filling and stealing from your opponents' graveyards and protecting Chainer.

Stax: Honestly, I would avoid hard stax. It encourages your opponents to hate you and escalate their power-level.

What this deck really needs is ramp: 38-40 lands and 12-16 cards like Bubbling Muck , Charcoal Diamond , Heartless Summoning , Burnished Hart , Coalition Relic , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Magus of the Coffers , Gauntlet of Power , Nirkana Revenant , etc. Also Phyrexian Tower .

I'd recommend Dark Deal and Ward of Bones as soft stax. The first fits right into your game plan and the second is pretty clutch vs. artifacts and enchantments.

Board wipes like Boompile , Nevinyrral's Disk , Coercive Portal , Perilous Vault are very necessary in mono-black because they are some of the only ways to deal with artifacts and enchantments.

...If you want to lean into stax... here's a list for evil people :)

TypicalTimmy on Cards that Retroactively Became More ...

I have been seeing a lot more hype generate around Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded for Oathbreaker. This seems like the format he as inevitably designed for as he allows you to burn through your library at a rapid pace while having both the consistency of being in the Command Zone and the tempo of costing merely . In fact, you can quite literally T1 him.

Actually, I'm seeing a LOT of cards find a new power curve in Oathbreaker.

Now I'm not entirely sure how viable he truly is, but if someone can find a way to force opponents to get cards in red, he can actually be quite a threat. It may seem silly to pair him up with The Rack , but if you also run Wheel of Fortune , Howling Mine , Dragon Mage , Memory Jar , etc you can ensure your opponent has the biggest hand size possible.

Then, throw down some crap like Disrupting Scepter , Specter's Shroud , Possessed Portal , etc to whittle their hand back down to 0.

It's an odd way to play, but it hits them from multiple angles:

  • Tibalt's -4
  • Wheel of Fortune 's damage
  • The Rack 's damage
  • Constantly disrupting their game plan because their cards are always rotating out
  • Possibly land-locking them if they keep dumping lands or keep drawing nothing but lands

Because, turn 3 Void Winnower, turn 4 Possessed Portal may not win you the game, but boy does it make BHs pucker!

Last change for 2018, this was unexpected. But I had the opportunity to obtain an Imperial Seal. This was a dream card, that I ever wanted to add. Now it has happened.

I cut Possessed Portal with pain in my heart. I still am not 100% sure if this is a permanent choice, but his masive cmc and to get a more consistent play decided me to try to play this deck without it.

Looking forward to play my games without it.

If you read under the deck description Goblin Welder along with an artifact land can create a very one-sided hardlock with Possessed Portal. I've never hardcast it but it's won me some games!

Land Tax does the job the job of your Endless Horizon suggestion. Good card, just not in this list.

Based on how often lands will die and Some will comeback: I don't see anyway you will be casting Possessed Portal. You may also Like Endless Horizons (although it is vulnerable and you don't have too many plains).
