Priest of Gix Discussion
on CEDH Teysa

Why Priest of Gix ? Imo Blood Pet would be better in here. Less damage off of naus and bob, can ramp into a t2 teysa (or any other 3 drop), and could still combo for inf black mana with karmic guide and reveillark like priest can.
I would also suggest adding Mindblade Render because most of the time you should be able to hit someone profitably in cEDH games. Either that or the najeela player will hit somebody and you can profit.

As always, thanks for the suggestions!
Hmm. So, I've been getting a lot of Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord suggestions, and I guess the reason I haven't been including him is the high mana cost. Sure, 4 mana to play him, and 3 mana to sac Hogaak for 8 damage to each opponent doesn't sound like a lot, but it is. It'll take five Jarad activations to kill everyone outright, and this is assuming you have 15 mana, as well as at least 8 creatures and 20 cards in the graveyard to replay Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis 4 times. If I have that kind of board state, then I'd probably do something else with it.
And I'd imagine, that if you'd intend to use Jarad over multiple turns, that he'd paint a target on your back as soon as you dealt the first 8 damage to each opponent (but I guess, for me at least, just playing this Hogaak deck paints a target on my back. My playgroup has seen it win a bit too much, unfortunately).
Now the Corpse Dance is an interesting suggestion. I don't think I've ever seen this card before today. Would you mind elaborating the "clever tricks" this card can do? I can imagine an infinite combo with a Priest of Gix , a Panharmonicon and any sac-outlet.
On first glance, it looks like an investment that already requires infinite mana, but I could be wrong.

sjm: I implore you to come join the discussion on Discord.
Witch's Cottage is very slow for cEDH, and would NEVER deserve a slot due to it being a tapped land every time before Turn 4.
Wishclaw Talisman is unnecessary as a tutor, because like Scheming Symmetry , it helps our opponents. Not only is our stack interaction limited in Mono-Black, meaning we can’t always respond to what our opponents tutor, we have no way to abuse and untap Wishclaw to get any real benefit from it. The density of tutors we have now is fine.

shadowmage you won't know if your opponent has a combo piece unless you cast specifically thoughtsieze or duress, the only two pieces of disruption in your deck, and choose the person who you cast thoughtsieze or duress on, which is probably the person who is about to win. Scheming symmetry is not a good card, and politics don't exist in cEDH. in addition, you aren't playing Priest of Gix , Overeager Apprentice , or Blood Pet , which are just rituals with K'rrik in play and those seem pretty good when you think about it.

Slivortal, another "free" spell worth considering is Priest of Gix . Though not as good as the 0cmc creatures because it requires you have mana open to cast it, it does have the added benefit of converting into . It's just a shame it's a human; looping it with Mikaeus would be sick.
I actually hadn't been thinking about using Carnifex Demon strictly to cancel Mikaeus, the Unhallowed 's counters; I'd been thinking to make a one-sided wipe. As I was typing that comment out, I remembered Mikaeus didn't grant undying to himself, thus was vulnerable to Carnifex counters. I want to use Hex Parasite in the deck anyway, both for flavor and mechanical reasons (nuke opponents' creatures while keeping mine around and making a massive Parasite to boot), so it seemed a logical way to keep Mikaeus up and running.
Thank you for spelling out the infinite combo to me. I was very short on sleep when I read your deck's description, so I couldn't really grasp what I was reading at that point in time. When first brainstorming for this deck, my first instinct was to go all in on the -1/-1 counter theme, including perhaps wither and infect, and I failed to notice how sweet Yawgmoth truly is. What's fun is that I was already considering some of the other elements of the combo for the deck ( Myr Sire , Rotlung Reanimator ). I also really like the idea of Archfiend of Ifnir , as it plays nicely with Yawgmoth's second ability, and spreads infection to my opponents.
My build will likely end up much less streamlined than yours, due to the fact that I want a heavy focus on flavor. For instance, while I'm sure there's nothing saying faeries can't seek compleation, I'll probably skip Bitterblossom because, while mechanically it's a strong fit, it just doesn't scream Phyrexia to me (the fact I don't own a copy is further deterrence, lol). I'll also be more inclined to use infect, which is rather surprising, given how much I usually dislike playing against infect decks... but a Phyrexian theme deck without at least Glistening Oil or Phyresis strikes me as lacking. Whether or not I try for a poison counter win remains to be seen, though.
Currently I'm looking at a list of 250+ cards; I spent last weekend moving and hadn't had time at all this week to tinker with my build. Once I get a chance to cull unnecessary jank and get to something a little more reasonable I'll link it and see what you think.

Kira0077 natural order doesn't get razaketh; switch pattern of rebirth for natural order in a hulk-only list. eldritch evolution gets mindslicer, not hulk, and finale gets either viscera seer or a utility creature.
here's a challenge for folks who enjoy them: come up with a razaketh line that uses Priest of Gix instead of LED. you start hellbent with no mana and are restricted to golgari color identity, but you can have as many creatures with no abilities, tapped lands, and life as you need. off the top of my head, here's one that requires a starting state of four creatures: sac for lotus petal, mana crypt and priest of gix, hardcast priest, repeatedly reanimate priest (like eye witness), after netting BBBB or more sac priest and last creature for hulk and BS, hardcast BS discarding hulk, sac it for anything returning hulk, sac hulk :/ as usual you can adjust the ratio of creatures to lands but it remains very crappy, someone outdo it...
