Quietus Spike Discussion

JuQ on [EDH] Kumena, Commander of Orazca

Doesn't really look too bad for me.
You can get some ideas from this deck Jimmy's Kumena l Game Knights #14, it looked cool in the game they reccorded. Stuff like:
Empress Galina
Lullmage Mentor
Path of Discovery
Deeproot Waters
Heroic Intervention

Maybe some recursion like Seasons Past, Creeping Renaissance or the staple Eternal Witness.
Or some more card draw Mask of Memory, Shamanic Revelation or Pull from Tomorrow.
Maybe you need some more removal Reality Shift, Snakeform, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Pongify.
A card to make your opponents crap their pants Quietus Spike, perfect with an unblockable commander.

It just depends on your meta, what you lack during your games.

Ow, you seem to run Quietus Spike. Sorry I overlooked that one, still Wound Reflection would make it more deadly!

I think you should try to lower your curve and more mana-rocks like Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Coalition Relic wouldn't hurt either. It's true that the higher cost minions are pure value but I think it's better to play smaller "threats" to bait removal out while generating some card-advantage trough them. If you are going to stick with the B/U creature based strategy, then here are some suggestions;

You could try to take advantage of your creatures who can swing in without any problem since a lot of them can't be blocked by running Coastal Piracy

I would also try to fit in the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots, they are great at keeping your value creatures on the battlefield. (Random thought), Maybe even run Quietus Spike to just annihilate opponents with one swing? The Spike combined with Wound Reflection is an insta-kill. Wound Reflection has also perfect synergy with Sorin Markov btw.

If you are playing valuable creatures, you also really need a SacOutlet to protect them from exile or the dreaded copy/steal effects, so Ashnod's Altar or even Phyrexian Altar could also be great additions.

And even though you are running counter spells, you can't counter everything people throw at you so some reanimation could come in handy. This combined with the sacoutlet makes Kokusho and Keiga so much better. Imagine what you could do with the Dragons when Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is on board as well. Mikaeus has a strong combo withTriskelion to, infinite damage ftw.

Last of, running some blue staples could really help you out. Blue is the best color for card advantage so why not take advantage from that with Rhystic Study? Capsize is also really good for controlling the board-state.

This deck isn't a tier one strategy, and it won't be. Using Slither Blade and other unblockable weenies and "when deals damage do X" is good, but they need to be cheap, and win you the game. Quietus Spike does half their life, and Inquisitor's Flail doesn't double that, only the one damage Slither Blade and his ilk themselves deal, even Fireshrieker only does 3/4ths of their life, as it takes half of it, and then half again. This makes it a 13 mana, 3 card combo that doesn't win. You could use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel for 9 mana and two cards, both of which are better on their own. This deck is trash, and isn't good for budget. 2x Zombie Infestation + 4x Treasure Hunt +4x Reliquary Tower + 25x Swamp + 25x Island is better for budget.

I hope you were joking when you said "Tier One".
