Rotting Regisaur Discussion

A different take on mono-black. I like it!

No love for big-boy Rotting Regisaur though? That guy carries Demonic Embrace like a boss and can even throw some enchantments in the yard, if needed (vs. control for example). Plus it holds down the fort nicely vs. other aggro decks.

Maybe cut down on a Lurrus of the Dream-Den and Murderous Rider and/or some of the other removal. You have plenty of interaction as is.

Thanks for the suggestions PuddinWing! I really like Rotting Regisaur but I am on the fence about using it because its self-discard ability can shut down the deck if left unchecked. But you encouraged me to test it out more. It helps dump Archfiend's Vessel and cards for Kroxa’s escape.

Hunted Nightmare was also a contender but the deathtouch counter on the opponent’s creature can be a big obstacle sometimes. I’d rather have consistent lifelink and deathtouch with Grimdancer.

Do you think Rotting Regisaur or Hunted Nightmare would be better fits than Grimdancer?

How about replacing Massacre Girl by Rotting Regisaur. It helps to put cards in your graveyard and if it is in the graveyard could give 7 +1/+1 counters to your commander. Not bad, huh?

Nice deck. If you’re running Bloodrage Brawler, perhaps Rotting Regisaur is a possible card to consider? The constant discard can sometimes be problematic, but it’s a huge body and if your deck is looking to discard a lot, then maybe it’s worth considering. I’m not sure about your budget, but if you’re willing to stretch then Grim Flayer also seems strong. It’s a low drop aggressive creature that will help fill your graveyard pretty quickly, although if you’re looking to go all in on discard perhaps might not fit as well. Finally, Key to the City is my personal favourite card for discard decks, being able to get through your big creatures to end games is always good value. Hope this is helpful.

Hey zAzen7977!

Dude, Rotting Regisaur looks nasty! Liliana, the Last Hope would be a great fit when I've got the $$$ for some more magic cards! lol.

Witch's Cottage looks useful too.

Experimenting with new removal spells all the time. I've had both Fatal Push and Spark Harvest in the deck and like them both.

You're right about Soul Stair Expedition being slow. I had a bunch of crack lands and thought it might be worth a try. I'm currently trying out Grim Discovery. Think it will be nice for digging a Stitcher's Supplier or a Carrion Feeder AND a crack land for the Bloodghast. Limited testing on that card.

I play on MTGO, so these decks are changing often!

Have quite a few play hours in. Deck runs really well.

Thanks for the advice buddy!

Lates, Das Butch

Hey DasButch, I like your deck! I have a few suggestions -

Rotting Regisaur is a big zombie that helps discard your Crawlers and Ghasts. Plus you can sac it if you want to stop discarding.

Demonic Embrace may be an option since you are self-milling. Another possibility is Liliana, the Last Hope, she self-mills and can generate bodies for sac’ing later.

Soul Stair Expedition seems too slow. You want to keep stuff in the grave to boost your Diregraf Colossus, which I think you should 4 of. Why not 1-2 Unearth instead? Creature goes straight to the battlefield. Also Witch's Cottage and Castle Locthwain are good utility lands.

I think a couple Fatal Push will complement the Tragic Slips too. More removal will help against super fast creature decks. :)

Hey, I was looking this deck over again, and I noticed that you could really improve the consistency here. You're leaning really heavily on black for removal, (you need to fix your land base to accommodate this, getting rid of some forests or so) and you have a lot of instances when you only have 1-2 removal spells of a certain kind. I'd suggest taking out the 1 Eliminate for a 3rd Murderous Cut, perhaps sideboarding Broken Bond, adding in a 3rd copy of Duress and a second copy of Dreadbore for that.

To help out your combo with Hazoret the Fervent + Rotting Regisaur, you may want to add in some more Cathartic Reunions. And, if, during our m21 draft, you pull a Grim Tutor, that would help you greatly. I'd also be willing to trade for it, just saying.
