Psychosis Crawler Discussion

I really like the deck but there are a lot of combos that could be in this deck such as Repay in Kind + Essence Harvest / Psychosis Crawler there are a decent amount of cards in your maybeboard that are really really good such as Skirge Familiar Doom Whisperer Command the Dreadhorde and skirge familar specifically is a bomb in this deck since you can draw 2 by paying one you can go through a decent portion of your deck to find things your looking for I also recommend putting in Reliquary Tower Ivory Tower and Library of Leng ivory can gain you a lor of life later in the game and reliquary and library make sure you dont have to discard also how do you add a changelog? If you wanna see my deck here it is http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/vilis-broker-of-value/

Added Four More ideas for cuts, & even added Psychosis Crawler as another Card Draw Based Killer; backed up that it gets stronger for those reasons.
Not sure about you, but do you have any ideas for cuts? Just asking; & I'm running low on ideas...

TeLaSoul I definitely agree with you that Mutilate is good in the deck. I actually just switched this deck over from Erebos as the commander to Vilis, so I'm testing out a bunch of cards. I figured I've heard good things about Pestilence, and it's another type of board wipe, which synergizes with the commander since it can deal damage to us. I'm testing out Dead of Winter as well, but haven't gotten to play with it much yet (i.e. if it's worth it over Mutilate as well, if I should run both, etc). The biggest thing is that 1) I'm testing out some other cards right now, and I think you're right that I should find something to swap back in for mutilate, and 2) I think it's worth noting that in order to add a card, I've got to cut something. It's worth thinking about what to cut for Mutilate in this instance.
I might cut the Psychosis Crawler since it's a little bit uninteractive, and it's also only really good if you've got Vilis out. Bitterblossom has been in and out of the deck since it was Erebos as well, so that's a potential cut, but I think the flying blockers and the potential to also be a Phyrexian Arena makes it worth it for the time being.
Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip might be worth cutting, but I've got a soft spot for her, so I'll probably keep her in. Basilisk Collar is a bit slow and we've got other ways of gaining life back, so that's worth considering cutting, also. Plus it doesn't do anything on its own. I think one of those cards will probably be cut to put Mutilate back in at some time in the future.

Hey greyson161, thanks for the kind words. I wouldn't really consider my build of Nin to be a competitive take, necessarily. I've devoted a fair bit of the deck to pulling Stuffy Doll from my library, as his strange mechanic sort of breaks the balance inherent in Nin's ability, allowing you to draw cards and deal direct damage simultaneously. This is a bit cutesy and definitely way too disruptable/expensive to be considered a cEDH wincon, but it makes me smile!
That said, this deck definitely includes a number of ways to create "infinite" mana, many of which are cEDH Staples. Grim Monolith + Power Artifact , Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth , Metalworker + Staff of Domination , and Deadeye Navigator + Palinchron can all accomplish that feat, and that is a mighty tool indeed in this deck. Not only is it a one-hit KO with the aforementioned Stuffy Doll interaction, but boat-loads of mana can be translated very simply into boatloads of cards. Usually I'm dropping an ETB creature, cashing in its value, then slamming it for as much damage as I can afford in order to refil my hand. There are a number of cards that cause damage/loss of life when I draw, including both Niv Mizzets, Psychosis Crawler , and - a bit more indirectly - The Locust God . I also run Blightsteel and Lightning Greaves for good measure, and Laboratory Maniac is a great wincon when I'm over 100 mana. Oh, and even though I find the combo distateful, this deck also runs Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts , because both halves of that combo are independently excellent in this deck.
Hope some of this was helpful/interesting! For my part, I think more competitive builds of Nin are less creature-heavy and run a bit more control/wheel effects. The Spike Feeders YouTube channel often features a pretty spicy build of Nin, which you can see pop off in this episode: https://youtu.be/TVWocKbLg1A Of course, this was before we lost Paradox Engine (RIP). Happy brewing!

Psychosis Crawler + the enchantments dont work together. Crawler causes loss of life not damage

If you're drawing lots of cards, perhaps Psychosis Crawler can be another win condition for you?

If you are drawing bunches of cards, Psychosis Crawler can put pressure on opponents.
