Quietus Spike Discussion
5 days ago
A lot of this deck has changed, but I've tried my best to maintain the Vampire theme.
Likely adding Academy Ruins, City of Brass, Gemstone Array, Magistrate's Scepter, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pawn of Ulamog, Rogue's Passage, Skeletal Vampire, Sword of Feast and Famine, Thespian's Stage, Wound Reflection, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Deserted Temple, Nim Deathmantle, Mirage Mirror, Aggravated Assault, Cabal Coffers, Sunken Hollow, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Arcane Lighthouse, Triskelion, Falkenrath Noble and Quietus Spike.
Now, what the hell do I remove?

Considering Quietus Spike does nothing under without investing at least 6 mana, I dont really see the argument for it. You also desperately need fewer lands and more ramp/mana rocks. Enlightened Tutor is great in this, and not very expensive.

I really like it! i run an 8,5 deck too and I can tell I've found some nice pieces here! I definitely need to try Concerted Effort.

feels nice bud,
cos you can get silly with [Lorthos, the Tidemaker]
also, because its quite a niche combo, you may need to find some tutors to get the pieces together, depends how much you want to make it happen as a subtheme, the cards strong on its own, so thats fine too
also where is your ramp, i don't see a sol ring, or the basic green arsenal here. (theres some creature ramp, but i find that a bit volatile) with a 6 mana commander, land ramp is nice because you accelerate towards her, and have 'safer' mana (meta dependent)
if the board is wiped, to deal with your dragons, all your mana dorks go with it, and its a huge setback
theres a couple of cards i dont quite understand here mirror wing dragon, Draconic Roar, seems like a couple of on flavor cards here that are not doing alot in an EDH format, just depends how tribal you wanna goif you can budget it, worldly tutor is one of the best cards for intet
rather then just listing cards, while my decks gets expensive, theres some good cheaper intet tech floating around

Ack! I'm a bit late; work has been brutal lately. Anyway, here's the comment I owe you, haha.
This probably isn't what you want to hear, but you have most of the things I'd normally suggest for the deck. Personally, I'd try to avoid somewhat suboptimal creatures that are only in the deck due to the snake tribal (like Lorescale Coatl), but that's more personal preference.
One thing you haven't exploited too much is the unblockability aspect, though. Quietus Spike is a nasty little trick you could pull off pretty well with your commander. Or you could do silly things with Kukemssa Pirates or Pygmy Hippo...

What do you think about Quietus Spike? I think that makes for a fun turn 7 for your opponents. The politics in that situation is just great. "Why shouldn't I attack you? What's in it for me?" Hahaha.
+1 on the whole thing, man!

Most commander decks just win with the "out-value" plan. The idea is that if you can do everything more efficiently than everyone else, you will win. I have a Queen Marchesa deck that tries to keep everything other than my own stuff off the board so that I can chip away my opponents' life totals with a large threat turn after turn. My Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck slowly drains eveybody with Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat effects so I eventually win. My Sygg, River Cutthroat deck establishes an early board presence with an evasive threat or three, gives it something broken to hold like a Quietus Spike, then controls the long game with countermagic and removal. There are tons of options. Also, remember that your commander can be your win condition if you build it right.
