Reaper from the Abyss Discussion

One demon I took a chance on running is Reaper from the Abyss and it always paid off. if you are playing in a pod you can sac one apostle every other player's turn get them back with Athreos, rememberance, etc. and kill off threats. Plus when you Apostle for it you get a Doom Blade

JoJoem on Creature-Type Hate Deck

I'm looking to create a deck that does three things efficiently:

  1. Be able to single out particular creature-type and Debilitate/Remove/Use them
  2. Make it very excruciating for opponents to have creatures, especially of certain types
  3. Apply creature-types for shenanigans.

Budget isn't an issue as I plan on acquiring the pieces overtime, although I wouldn't mind not spending more than I really have to.

My playgroup has a lot of creature theme going on that work very well. I'm aiming to wreck their fun. I'm currently leaning on Olivia Voldaren to build upon but am open to suggestions.

Other cards that helped inspire the concept:

You commented some really helpful thoughts onto my Golgari Deck so I thought I'd return the favor.

Any other fatties like Dread Cacodemon or cheap tricks with Extractor Demon, Lord of the Void, or Reaper from the Abyss

Plus, who can forget our favorite demon Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Love the concept! Never seen this idea which is kinda strange because its amazing. Definitely a +1!

Check out my Sheoldred list here as I can probably trim down your mana costs with creatures. The expensive part of the deck is the mana base: Mono Black Sheoldred

I agree the land count is too low for casual. Quality lands to add are: Bojuka Bog, Mortuary Mire, Rogue's Passage, Arch of Orazca

Black also has mana doublers and discount cards such as Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers and cards like Bontu's Monument and the before mentioned Jet Medallion that will help your curve.

Definitely want to center more cards around making players sacrifice creatures. Demon of Wailing Agonies is a great compliment to Yahenni and cards like Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Reaper from the Abyss are good controlled forms of creature based spot removal.

Hope this helps!

Hunter of Eyeblights and Humble Defector seem very odd for a stax/control deck. Defiler of Souls is cute, but I think it's too much mana for its effect (given that you have a decent number of mono-colored creatures) - I'd almost rather run something like Reaper from the Abyss (more versatile and gives you the choice) or Sheoldred, Whispering One. Tsabo Tavoc is a LOT of mana, and I'd consider removing her.

I'd find space for Anguished Unmaking - while you should play both, probably, it's generally better than Chaos Warp. Beyond that, Null Rod, Armageddon, Rule of Law, and other common stax pieces are what I would consider a "must". Also, no Archfiend of Depravity? It's a good way to thin out large hordes.

...also, I'd put more basics in the deck, and work on making more of the landbase come in untapped. You need to drop your stax/control pieces before opponents drop major answers onto the field.

I also replaced Reaper from the Abyss with Sheoldred, Whispering One It costs one more mana, but I think it has better utility, especially if you are going up against another creature/token deck. Just personal preference.

MRDOOM3 I like some of these suggestions.
I already have Bloodbond March and Thrumming Stone, but I really like Reaper from the Abyss and Xathrid Necromancer.
Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker was already a card that I was going to add. (Built this deck a couple days ago and is in my TCG cart already).The other concern that I have is card draw. I was thinking Smothering Abomination over Archdemon of Unx just for the card draw. Was going to add some tutors like Demonic Tutor for more reliant combo potential.

If you have any suggestions on good utility land cards too, that would be greatly appreciated!
