Reiver Demon Discussion
1 month ago
Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon
I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

I have a number of concerns about this deck. Please read in full. I'm not stating anything I wouldn't follow myself. I really like your deck idea. In fact, I've loved land creature manipulation for a long time - Rude Awakening is one of my favorite cards.
1) As your creatures are weak by themselves, I don't see a win condition outside of Sylvan Awakening, other than Demon of Catastrophes. And if he's dealt with, you're in trouble. Some Mid-Range power creatures, like Josu Vess, Lich Knight could help a lot here. Josu can even end the game when kicked (and help get value out of Cabal Stronghold ). I like Liliana's Reaver, but it is not legal in Standard.
2) Sylvan Awakening gives you a field full of, well...2/2s. Even if you have 10 of them, not only do you have one turn to win the game, but certainly your opponent will either be able to block 2/2s no problem, or even counter the spell all together, leaving you in a bad spot. If they have a creature that can block multiple creatures, or has lifelink, that's even worse for you. You might benefit from a way to further pump each land up after becoming creatures. Echoing Courage is what I would advise, but if you're playing Standard, I don't know what to suggest here. Perhaps a global boost with trample.
3) Without a mono-black deck, I fear you won't get the full use out of Cabal Stronghold, and will end up with a colorless producing machine, instead of the extra black mana you're hoping for. Not only that, but the land is really only useful for high cost cards, like huge demons that are hard to cast otherwise, like Reiver Demon, or for cards with X in the cost, like Consume Spirit, or Torment of Hailfire.
4) Since you're depending on win conditions a bit later on, having defensive spells could be beneficial. A Standard equivalent of Doom Blade or Grasp of Darkness would be nice. Cast Down is one of my favorites.
Again, cool idea, but it's really hard to make work. I've been looking into mono black efficiency myself. Maybe something like Liliana's Reaver could help with mid-range power, or Glint-Sleeve Siphoner to help with card draw early on.

Ti consiglio di togliere:
Armillary Sphere, Traveler's Amulet e Wanderer's Twig non mettono le terre in campo, quindi sono molto lente. Meglio rampare velocemente con Sword of the Animist, oppure accelerare con Sol Ring, Caged Sun o Black Market.
In ogni caso, ti suggerirei di avere 2/3 boardwipe nel mazzo, gestisciteli tu. In un mono-nero, non posso che consigliarti vivamente Mutilate, oppure anche In Garruk's Wake. Due tizi fighi che spazzano solo le cose degli altri, a proposito, anche se non sono vampiri, sono Dread Cacodemon e Reiver Demon.
Hai tanti single target removal, tipo 10-11 (contando anche Hex, Dregs of Sorrow...). Valuta tu se magari tagliarne 2/3 e mettere qualche vampiro in più, come Twilight Prophet, Champion of Dusk, Mirri the Cursed, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Necropolis Regent o Defiant Bloodlord.
La tua mana base è un po' fatta di corsa, valuta sostituire qualche Swamp con delle utility lands come: Barren Moor, Mortuary Mire, Bojuka Bog, Myriad Landscape, Crypt of Agadeem, Cabal Stronghold. Se ti va, c'è sempre la combo Dark Depths + Vampire Hexmage.

Ares111123 I never thought of Reiver Demon as an option. I think it depends on what draw cards I put in in place of Serum Visions and Fallen Ideal because I like that Dregs of Sorrow destroys creatures and draws cards. Even if it is a slightly worse board wipe than Reiver Demon.
I really appreciate the feedback on the 8 non-zombie creatures I got going on. I've personally never run into that problem yet but being as that you did it's obviously a possibility so Arcane Adaptation should probably find a home in here unless i trade out some non-zombs for zombs.

I adopted the binder process so i purchased 1 of every edh stable and am able to use them in all of my decks so i dont have the first problem. I'd drop the visions, fallen ideal, and dredge sorrow for erebos, arena, and Reiver Demon. Also love the idea of adding the other 3 cards. I play tested the deck against my No Riku? No Problem!, Natures Overwhelming Surge, and Simic Shenanigans decks. It played great but ended up losing after the animar deck took 3 turns in a row. What i found was i ended up holding cards like Call to the Grave because Crypt Ghast isn't a zombie. To prevent it you could add Arcane Adaptation and with 8 of your creatures not being zombies this would give 1/5th of your creatures the same treatment as zombies.
