t3hdarkness on Kaervek the merciless

With a Seven Mana Commander, its never really going to be fast. But you can take measures to speed it up a little and slow everyone else down.

Putting out some early game meanness like Ankh of Mishra, Harsh Mentor, and Zo-Zu the Punisher let you get some damage going on while waiting for your big threats. This makes you a big target though.Crawlspace, Curse of Opulence, Ensnaring Bridge, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and Silent Arbiter can throw off some of the agro.

Burnished Hart, Commander's Sphere, Coalition Relic, Darksteel Ingot, Rakdos Cluestone, Rakdos Keyrune, Rakdos Signet, and Talisman of Indulgence will help speed out your commander and play those punishing triple mana symbol cards. Additionally they are immune to my next suggestion War's Toll.

One last thing. It won't let you win, but Heartless Hidetsugu with any of your damage doublers ends the game on the spot.

Hi,

In order to make this deck EDH-legal you should still remove 3 cards to make your total 100; not sure if you had noticed :) The mana-balance of this deck is a little off. What I mean by that, is that you're using a lot of expensive-to-cast creatures but virtually no ramping/mana rocks. This means that when you draw your opening hand in a game, chances are relatively high you will not be able to perform any (useful) actions during the first few turns. An additional problem is that the deck contains very little opportunity for you to draw more cards or to search for cards you need.

I would recommend adding some mana rocks like Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Gilded Lotus, Rakdos Cluestone, Rakdos Keyrune and/or Worn Powerstone. Also, Dark Ritual is a very good accelerator for black.

In terms of draw-cards, I think you could profit from using stuff like Sign in Blood, Skullclamp and Underworld Connections.

In order to make room for (some of) these cards, I would definitely recommend removing expensive stuff that isn't doing that much for you like Bloodhall Priest, Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood, Markov Dreadknight, Skeletal Vampire and Vein Drinker.

Hope any of this helps. Regards,

Gattison, the thing hanging from Glory Seeker is the scabbard of his sword, not his actual "sword."

I also forgot about Rakdos Keyrune, which again ahs suggestive flavor text, and there is also Fists of the Anvil which is entirely self-explanatory.

Rakdos Cluestone and Rakdos Keyrune have black in the color identity, so you can't run them in a boros deck.

I swapped in Oblivion Sower and Rakdos Keyrune for Sire Of Insanity and Grixis Panorama. I liked being able to go get lands with Grixis if needed, but I've been feeling for a while that I need just a bit more ramp then plain lands. Sire doesn't feel like its ever really getting me value, so I dropped it for Oblivion Sower. I swapped out Rakdos Guildgate for Graven Cairns because it's just a better land.

I also swapped in Grenzo, Dungeon Warden for Endless One because Grenzo can do a lot more to move my board state along and generate advantage, where Endless One was just a nice X drop for Rakdos. I decided to dump Stalking Vengeance for Damnation because it seems to get removed almost immediately and I needed access to a straight board wipe in the deck.

I still need to figure out what I'd like to switch out for my Demonic Tutor, but that's a tomorrow's issue.

Why play Searing Spear when there is Lightning Bolt. Instead of the pretty expensive and useless Rakdos Keyrune I would recommend a playset of Fatal Push (So maybe add fetches). I also don't see the Reason to play Clone. Would play like f.e. 2 Mana Leak and a Fling instead.

Like the idea in general. Hope I could help.
