Psychotic Episode Discussion

Dete on name pending...

i fill like its too expensive for the mana cost, and already got more than enough life drain, maybe changing some of the cards like Syphon Mind or Psychotic Episode for another thing. don't know what tho, ty for the suggestion anyway i will keep it in mind.

The overall combination is definitely better suited to a commander deck, especially under Markov since you can make use of all three major vampire colors and the Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , which plays all kinds of dirty with vampire tokens.

Regarding Keeper, the buff it provides is monstrous if you can get it flipped, but I don't especially care for it in a R/B Madness deck due to its low to the ground and swing nature -- Keeper is a much more midrange-y card, and I certainly recommend it more in a token based deck, alongside the Aristocrat.

I didn't even think to use Jump-Start cards in a Madness deck, but that's a pretty good idea -- discarding for an upside then using it as an outlet later is pretty sweet. Makes me rather sad there weren't more viable options printed, because the cost on Risk Factor makes it hard to hit a Madness trigger off of it, and Maximize Velocity is only sorcery speed. :(

When it comes to the Gorger, granting Madness to your other creatures is a hell of an upside, but in my testing I've found it is more difficult to plan around than I'd like, since you often don't have one in your opening hand, and they are extremely easy to kill. It's one of the major reasons I've been toying around with the Neonate again, just for a second one drop in the deck for more consistent turn 1 pressure.

I don't think I mentioned it before, but Call the Bloodline is another interesting option; I don't like it for a traditional red/black Madness deck, but it is quite nasty in a mono-black control variant I run alongside things like the Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Murderous Compulsion , and Dark Withering -- you might look into that with how black heavy your list is, especially since you can work in Psychotic Episode for some Madness handhate and make better use of the Highborn, Condemned, and Captivating Vampire you are running.

Teniendo en cuenta que la gran mayoria de tus cartas terminan en el cementerio, yo cambiaria los removals por cartas con madness como por ej:

Murderous Compulsion, Dark Withering, Psychotic Episode, Alms of the Vein

en ese sentido, Deepcavern Imp podria reemplazar al Putrid. Aunque tambien Arrogant Wurm o Basking Rootwalla podrian funcionar en su lugar.

El Seal of Doom parece bastante injugable, pero siendo un encantamiento, puede terminar en tu mano con la Commune.

Alguna Mortuary Mire no me parece que este de mas, por si se te cae un Gurmag al cementerio o si te matan la 3/3 vuela.

I like the concept for the deck and I love Disciple of Deceit. However, it seems like the deck might have trouble closing out the game. Also, it seems weird that you run an amazing tutor in Disciple of Deceit but don't really have anything amazing to find. So, may I make a crazy suggestion: what about the Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry combo? They give you some good tutor targets, and you already run plenty of 2 mana cards. To fit them in, I might cut Psychotic Episode (seems underpowered) and maybe some Gravecrawlers or Prized Amalgam.

For modern here are a few cards that aren't in standard i'd consider depending on how aggro you get Lightning Bolt, Bloodghast, Faithless Looting, Stromkirk Noble, Stromkirk Captain, Captivating Vampire, Vampire Nighthawk, Psychotic Episode,

NeverCloud on Commander Mill Deck - Help!

Oops! Sorry guys, I'm still figuring out the formatting stuff. Commander is Phenax, God of Deception. I'll definitely give Guiltfeeder, Spell Crumple, Hinder, and Psychotic Episode good consideration, I definitely didn't find those cards when I was searching for things to make this deck (:
