Razaketh's Rite Discussion

I like your list. One suggestion is Razaketh's Rite . It is a cycler with much more upside then some of your other cyclers.

I don't think you quite understand what I was trying to say. Black does have strong incremental draw power ( Dark Confidant Necropotence Phyrexian Arena Mindblade Render ), but for a combo deck that is trying to win on the a combo turn those cards aren't doing a lot besides +1 storm count. Black doesn't have a lot of efficient cards that read "draw cards". Blue has a whole host of cantrips that make storm a lot smoother, like Brainstorm Ponder Preordain Sleight of Hand and the like. Black has Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood , with more mediocre entries like Read the Bones or Ancient Craving . Black is lacking efficient storm draw, which is what Aetherflux Reservoir wants. The current best option for a K'rrik + Aetherflux deck is Ad Nauseum, at which point you might as well as be playing Sidisi for consistency and tutor in command zone.

No one is denying the draw power of any of the cards you listed, but please read for context. EoT trigger with Necropotence isn't doing a lot with Aetherflux when you need to be drawing and playing 15 cards for your kill on the same turn, because of 7 card hand size and exile clause you'll never have the gas in hand from JUST necro to get to 15 spells. Obviously the card would still get slotted in the deck for hand refill but don't get it twisted dude. When I say black needs better card draw for the deck, I'm being serious. Density of small black cantrips that would make an aetherflux reservoir deck work just aren't there, and the ones available don't allow you to shave enough CMC off with this commander to make playing them worthwhile. Having big draw bombs like Necro is great, but using a tutor to get to Necro is a waste when it should be finding DD or Aetherflux, and the draw effects don't dig deep or don't give scry, making it harder to draw/topdeck into the Necro.

Posts like these are why I wish tappedout had a seperate cEDH forum. No reason to incredulously "did I just read a sTrInG oF wOrDs?" or hyperlink banned cards. You didn't add anything to this conversation dude.

Life isn't nearly as important in EDH as you make it out to be, its a resource you have an abundance of and decks can't pressure 40 fast enough for aggro to be relevant. The problem isn't the life total for Doomsday, its what I said above, lack of black cantrips. Without a good pile cracker in hand or board, you're going to either have to Doomsday and pass (loss) or simply wait for your topdeck/card advantage to bring you a pile cracker. You do make a good point that the piles don't have a lot of flexibility though, its pretty much the pile I listed or a Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith + Exsanguinate pile. Mono Black DD piles also run into the problem of crumpling under any interaction, which makes them not very appealing.

The use of Barren Moor is a great find. There are a small handful of 1 CMC black cycling cards, Fade from Memory Horror of the Broken Lands Lurching Rotbeast Razaketh's Rite Scarab Feast with an honorable mention to Gempalm Polluter and Street Wraith . Unfortunately most of these run into the problem of digging 1 card for 1 mana and being low card quality outside cycling, but this definitely opens up some deckbuilding ideas.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, great help. I’m going to re draft today and update.

bushido_man96 I can’t believe I’ve missed Karn's Bastion that’s a great shout.

Izzy- the reanimate is a good idea, gives me a bit of extra protection if Yawgmoth gets hit so I’ll add some in.

Chhris I did consider infect, however, one of my friends has an infect deck and I hate playing against it, not a huge fan of the mechanic so I don’t want to run too much of it for that reason haha!

I thought I had put Razaketh's Rite in the list but I’ve missed it. Bedevil and Bontu's Last Reckoning are both good shouts.

Thanks v much.

Hey!! Great list so far. New Yawg is incredible. Have you considered running even 1 or 2 more Infect creatures as an alternate win-con? Obviously new Yawg is amazing with infect, and even though that's not your primary strategy here, it would work for you.

More board control may benefit you as well whilst you prepare the combo. Bedevil is amazing in Rakdos decks, and I like Bontu's Last Reckoning as well. Havoc Festival is dumb but may work for you. Also, Razaketh's Rite gives you the tools to search for your combo, plus added cycling for archfiend and cycling.

Overall I think this is great and on the way!!

skillz2125, so true. Especially the good ones like: Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and the most expensive of them all: Imperial Seal . The best one I own is Diabolic Intent but that's in another deck. I suppose Corpse Harvester is, and he's obviously in here but thats on a creature. Other than that though, I have Diabolic Tutor and Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition available but theyre so expensive CMC wise. And I wouldnt even know what to cut for them.

With Ad Nauseam you should always be carefull with huge cmc costs like Razaketh's Rite and the the amount of 4 / 5 drops you run as when you would go for a line without angels's grace it could hurt you a lot more than it should!!

What Pikobyte said. But for specific suggestions, I'll list them below.


- Brood Monitor isn't super strong in EDH. Not necessarily a must-cut, but one I'd definitly keep in mind. - Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is super powerful, but the mana requirements are pretty tough in a three-color deck. - Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis doesn't do much for your game plan. You have much better ways for forced sacrifice. - Scribe of the Mindful should probably be cut, unless you really want to keep the amount of Instant/Sorcery spells high. - Sphinx of Foresight , while interesting, is just kinda... meh. - Thallid Soothsayer is okay, but there are better sac outlets available to you. - Verdant Force is far too expensive and slow for what it does. - Weaver of Currents doesn't produce colored mana, which is important for a three-color deck.
- Curse of Disturbance isn't great, and not something you want to spend your T3 play on. - Underworld Connections could be cut in favor of better draw spells. Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study would be great here. -I respect the Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond combo, but without both cards you're stuck with a 5 CMC enchantment that doesn't do much for you.
- Haunted Fengraf and Rogue's Passage are both underwhelming, I'd look at replacing them with lands that produce colored mana or have stronger utility.
- Cast Down , Doom Blade , Incubation / Incongruity , Price of Fame , and Vona's Hunger are all decent removal, but again, you should prioritize permanents with those effects. - Dismiss and Unwind both seem like they're thrown in here. There's not much use for them. There are even creatures that can counter spells. - Thought Scour is worse than Stitcher's Supplier in this deck.
Nothing specific to replace here, but I would look into better (cheaper CMC) mana rocks and other value engines.
