Reaper from the Abyss Discussion

I like the Planeswalkers that you are starting with, especially Nissa, Steward of Elements. A good place to start would be to add some dual lands in each of the color combinations: black/blue, black/green, & blue/green. The next thing I would do if I was you would be to figure out what kind of deck you want to build vs. the cards you have now. Grim Flayer, Rancor, and Tasigur, the Golden Fang would be a good start for a Delve deck. Adding blue into that would allow for card draw or counter spells. There are a lot of Green creatures that can ramp your mana, like: Llanowar Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, & Elvish Mystic.

As far as cards you should remove from the deck right now: Harvester of Souls, Reaper from the Abyss, Soulstinger, Vizier of the Menagerie, & Manalith. You need to reduce the number of total cards down to 60. If you take these cards out you will be down to 66 cards. I typically use between 18 to 24 lands depending on the deck I am creating.

Hope this helps!

Ok. so it was pointed out to me that i would only get 1 Morbid kill at the end of each turn with Reaper from the Abyss

Still worth it if i do it right though, 1 on my turn, then sac 3 spirits and get another on opponents turn (along with the exile)

Jebus NCN946, those are both REALLY good. How have I not noticed that demon before?

I love the Reaper from the Abyss, if pulled with 6 apostles, would then kill 6 creatures at the end of turn. That's on top of the fact that I should get 6 Spirits from commander, that will allow me to kill 6 more creatures and exile 2 more if I sac them.. Wow, the Synergy.

Malicious Affliction is good as well, but a little more limited, a lot of my playgroup tends to play black.

You Have plenty of Kill already, but i'd consider using Reaper from the Abyss for the sweet sweet morbid, maybe Malicious Affliction as well

Just saw the comment you made. I see now. I was playing a more combo central build (and failing). With Riftstone Portal I have Crop Rotation and Harrow in the deck. I have more suggestions. Descendants' Path, Doubling Chant, Reaper from the Abyss, Grand Abolisher.

Was looking at your deck some more, and I have a few more ideas, like upping your demon count and a few reanimation spells liiiiike.....

Desecration Demon, Grave Titan, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Reiver Demon, Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Overseer of the Damned

stuff like that...then you could put in reanimation spells like

Animate Dead, Reanimate, Ever After, Whip of Erebos, Sheoldred, Whispering One

stuff like could throw in Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice for card draw/discard

Maybe a zombie sub theme and add in Shepherd of Rot

Fun things like Tree of Perdition, Quietus Spike, Rage Reflection, Ward of Bones, Havoc Festival

If anything definitely add Anger to your deck

or just throw in 30 Shadowborn Apostle haha

If I repeated any cards already in your deck, I apologize. Either was happy building and kick some ace!!

Played a 1v1 game last night against a / mill deck. I was on the ropes. He had Consuming Aberration, Reaper from the Abyss and his flying general. The problem with Omrath is the lack of flying in the deck as a whole. The need of both Akroma's Memorial and Eldrazi Monument are by far a necessity. Drop memorial swing for 45 in the air with everything tapped. Game over. also Akroma's Memorial stops things like Reaper from the Abyss from resolving and killing your general. It was quick!
