Quietus Spike Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Oloro, Ageless Potato

Crypt Ghast, in my opinion, is not really useful in this deck, unless there's also Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Exsanguinate is another nice lifedrain card.

Paradox Haze is another card that interacts well with Oloro.

Also, have you considered Pontiff of Blight, along with Divinity of Pride, Serra Ascendant, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, and Test of Endurance?

Koskun Falls is another pillowfort enchantment you can run.

Another life doubler is Boon Reflection.

I also personally do not really like Sublime Exhalation, but since my playgroup tends to play Avacyn, Angel of Hope, you can keep it if you want. I was going to suggest sweepers like Merciless Eviction or Cyclonic Rift.

Vindicate is another nice removal spell, so are Path to Exile and Ashes to Ashes.

A meh spell you can run is Temporal Extortion, although it may not be too great, since giving your opponent choices isn't always too great. You also can try out Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw.

Sorin, Grim Nemesis also interacts well with lifegain decks.

Mistveil Plains + Squadron Hawk is simply too good to miss out on, it gives infinite squad hawks, thus infinite blockers, or just insurance against discard that does not target, like from lilana (+1).

You should really decide what do you want to do with the deck on equipment front, as Trophy Mage is very powerful (and should be present in 4 copies), but there is no point in running Batterskull alongside her a single copy.
I would check out other good 3cmc artifacts, like Sword of the Animist, Godsend, Grafted Wargear(?), Quietus Spike, Whispersilk Cloak... etc.
In my humble opinion you should not play planeswalkers, just for the sake of having planeswalkers, but each to his own i guess.

On creature front i would probably consider Spell Queller, as that is one of if not the best card in these colors, while in theory it could also fit in this deck, as it already includes a lot of counterspell, the more the merrier!

+1 very nice. Have you looked at using Inquisitor's Flail or Quietus Spike?

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.

  1. There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.

Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance should really be Fervor, because if you are going for a haste enabler, you might as well play the best one.

The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.

Among these cards are Levitation, Deceiver Exarch/Pestermite since you run Splinter Twin, Silent-Blade Oni, Dire Undercurrents, Counterspell, Negate, Crawlspace.

If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

Since red is lacking in deathtouch and since it just got reprinted Basilisk Collar seems mighty worthy. It instakills all creatures regardless of size as long as they don't have pro red, pro creature or indestructible. It pairs nicely with Nemesis Mask for some good life gain/board wipe. The next worthy source of deathtouch is Quietus Spike witch could be easily manipulated with something like Brass Squire to just flip it to an unblocked goblin or you could use Brass Squire to throw it or Basilisk Collar on a goblin blocked by a fatties you want dead now. Gorgon Flail, and Gorgon's Head also can give alternate death touch effects but sacrifice features.

High Tide as a 1 or 2-of could enable some early game plays. Extra Quietus Spikes are dead cards in hand most of the time, maybe drop it down to 2?

Cool build, +1.

Hey I have some hopefully new ideas for you. I'm not going to focus on EDH staples like upgrading removal spells and mana because you can figure those things out easy enough on your own. I like to focus on lesser known synergy cards and combos. Quietus Spike & Scytheclaw are brutal on unblockable creatures. Desolation Twin makes the biggest tokens in the game. Mimic Vat, Blade of Selves, and Phyrexian Processor are unique token creation cards. Hour of Reckoning can be a basically one sided wrath. Phantom General and Intangible Virtue are great for token decks too and so is Rootborn Defenses. I hope that was helpful, happy gathering!!
