Raiders' Wake Discussion
2 hours ago
A few possible additions that would be good in this deck are:
- Cao Cao, Lord of Wei
- Fell Specter
- Nezumi Shortfang
- Mind Slash
- Raiders' Wake
- Bloodchief Ascension
- Quest for the Nihil Stone
- Shrieking Affliction
- Words of Waste
I know you don’t have much for creatures to feed mind slash if you like it but there are plenty of token producing enchantments in esper colors that can be Zured out that do make lots of tokens to feed it.
There’s a lot more I could suggest but won’t for now. I absolutely do love the direction you’re taking this Zur deck though. Very original. +1 from me.

My third color for this would definitely be blue, that gives you access to Drowned Catacomb, Watery Grave, Steam Vents and Sulfur Falls, which will actually improve your mana base. It also allows you to play 3 Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip at your four drop in place of 3 Raiders' Wake. Moment of Craving is going to allow you to live long enough to set up your value inevitability against mono red, so I would think about going to 2 on Shock and put two more in the side board instead of Urgoros, the Empty One. This next one hurts me to say, since Fell Specter is one of my favorite cards, but you will definitely get more value out of Chemister's Insight, drawing cards is essential for you and being able to ditch a land late for two more cards is great. Also, with blue you get access to a couple of counter spells, which is fantastic against all the etb abilities on creatures right now. I would think about running two Syncopates in place of Liliana's Spoils which will help your curve as well, and go for 2 Essence Scatters and 2 Lava Coils (Now that I'm saying it, Shock and Lightning Strike would probably be out for me) so cards like Rekindling Phoenix, Arclight Phoenix, or either izzet drake can't trade for more than one card. Finally, you will have to make a choice on whether you want to get more aggressive, or more control. I would lean more toward control, as the value in this deck is difficult to overcome late game. If, however, you decide you would rather get an early advantage, simply swap the two Essence Scatter and Lava Coil for 4 Thief of Sanity. If he is not killed, he will win you the game simple as that (if he were a 2/3 I would be way more inclined to play him, but there's just too much out there to kill him for me). Anyway, didn't mean to write a book, but these are the changes I would make and why! If you like them let me know, and if you don't, then feel free to tell me that too and have fun playing with a fun deck!

Hey IWantYouBad! I like the thoughts behind the deck, but I think if you're going down the discard route, you would be better off playing to win with value then looking to discard your opponent for game. For this reason, I would definitely go with The Eldest Reborn as a four of, in place of Raiders' Wake as it is a 3 for 1 advantage, that won't be dead weight in the control matchup. I'd also get to 4 Ravenous Chupacabras, that card is automatically a 2 for one if your opponent has any creature on the field. The aggro red deck may also give you fits, I would recommend three Moment of Cravings main deck or sideboard to give you extra time to out-value them. If Golgari is a worry for you, I'd look to switch out Lightning Strike for Lava Coil (this also matches up really well against Rekindling Phoenix. Since we don't have any shock lands in rakdos, I would recommend splashing a third color (if this is looking to be competitive, if it's just for fun, then you don't want to waste that much money), it will actually make your mana base better. I would personally go with blue for access to more control like Syncopate, and card draw like Chemister's Insight. Finally, it's a budget breaker but Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip would be a stud in this deck, as he is a 2 for one flying 4/4 that is an easy win condition if not answered. If you don't want to break the bank, then Hostage Taker at the four spot is a good value as well (provided your opponent does not have an answer). Anyways, great deck! I've been playing something similar in MTG Arena and it does work!

Some card ideas for ya since you have a strong discard theme going on as well. These ideas can also be used as another win con in case opponents remove your critters that poison them.

We need to find something to deal with Tocatli Honor Guard that card hard counter our deck that's why Raiders' Wake is not so bad. Tocatli Honor Guard is now in some main deck and in almost all white decks' sideboard because of Golgari. I have no ideas...

So I took your idea and messed with it, going with the discard and drain theme. The main win conditions are Raiders' Wake and Fell Specter, since they are repeatable sources of damage from discard. With that in mind, here's how I reworked the deck. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/death-comes-at-night-copy/ I included a lot more removal and almost no single off drain gain aside from Blight Keeper to trigger Raiders' Wake. You by no means need to include everything that I included, but these are just some ideas.

Can ya'll help me out with a new deck I've been working on? It's based off of Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip. I cut 2 cards not sure what I want to add probably more board wipes. I'm also trying to fix my manabase so color screw isn't a problem and debating on whether or not to switch out Raiders' Wake for Words of Waste. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
