Raiders' Wake Discussion

Okay, foxx2487 then I'd suggest you add some Divests to go along with your Duresses, once it goes Standard in October, I'd use Never Happened to replace your Lost Legacies. I'd also mainboard your Raiders' Wake and drop the Vampire Neonates for more Vicious Conquistadors. Bloodcrazed Paladin would be a good addition for board wipes. Cast Down will likely serve you better than Murder and I concur that you should invest in more Vraska's Contempt. Urgoros, the Empty One would be a better alternative to Vampire Sovereign even though it cost more. I believe Ruin Raider replacing Skymarch Bloodletter would give you more of a reason to have a Reliquary Tower.

good you nudged me again ;-)

Let's review what we have here. I am under the assumption that you handle a moderate budget cut for any high end cards. So I will not suggest cards like The Abyss or Gaea's Cradle.

The deck feels abit slow. So I would suggest you gather some extra ramp/rocks and revamp your landbase abt. You have the colors to do this very effectively. I would be suggesting:

If you have any questions, then let me know. If you use Discord, then this is a great MtG place too: Discord MtG chat

Good Stax!

Did you consider adding Fell Specter and/or Raiders' Wake?

Hey TheNocholas thanks for those great suggestions! While Nemesis Mask is a nice card to get Neheb, the Worthy going I do prefer "unblockable" effects because they don't rely on other creatures. I'm thinking about adding Prowler's Helm instead. Raiders' Wake is just straight awesome since it is like a more valuable Liliana's Caress. Fell Specter could help triggering Raiders' Wake, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Sword of the Animist and Quietus Spike. I will add both cards to this deck. Thanks a lot for those ideas!

Nemesis Mask is a great way to make sure your commander can hit. Raiders' Wake might be worth adding to increase the value of forcing a discard. He isn't a minotaur but Fell Specter is also good discard value.

Nemesis Mask and Trailblazer's Boots are good cards to get some damage in. Raiders' Wake is a great in a discard to kill deck. Duskmantle Guildmage has an infinite mill combo with mindcrank. My The Old Grixis Mill deck has a few other fun cards that could be good.

consuming aberation is good, but I think there are better cards that would synergize more. The goal is to deal people damage from drawing, not mill and swing with a huge creature. Probably take out Fog Bank because you already have Guard Gomazoa. Master of the Feast could backfire if someone removes Nekusar, then you'll just be giving opponents free cards. Same deal with Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix, and Forced Fruition. Better to stick to reliable spells that you can control in my opinion, BUT!! It's good to keep a couple in if you're able to protect Nekusar, especially if you keep in other creatures and enchantments that do the same thing as Nekusar. Just something to think about. Grafted Exoskeleton is more reliable than Phyresis. Megrim is just a worse version of Liliana's Caress and Raiders' Wake. I doubt anyone is going to fall for Minds Aglow unless you can manage to flash in something that screws them, but if you have enough mana you can just do it yourself and screw everyone anyway. Wheel of Fortune would be great, but it is a bit expensive.

Wow this deck looks fun, been looking for a rotation proof mono black control since Torment of Hailfire and Torment of Scarabs are leaving rotation soon and this sounds like it could be the next evolution of the deck that makes Raiders' Wake work.
