KingMathoro on Who Needs $150+ Decks???

First of all thanks for the comment and the upvote! I appreciate it. I would tend to agree budget decks can easily work well and still win against higher budget decks. Because anything can happen in a game of commander! I might have to look into some of your decks because I like seeing budget brews and how they playout. Again thanks for the comment and upvote and also the kind words! :)


Hey thanks! Sacrifice is a great card that a lot of people don't seem to know about. It's super useful too!

+1 just for running Sacrifice.

I personally love Torment of Hailfire just as much as Debt to the Deathless. The issue is blacks mana ramp. In order for it to be lethal you need >=. since Sacrifice and Dark Ritual aren't options in modern it may be a bit difficult getting to your alt drops of Karn, Ulamog, or Ugin. I'd replace Ulamog with Desolation Twin. You get 2 10/10s and while not having indestruct. it is a pro/con.

The other thing is that Chromatic Star and Exp. Map seem expensive for what they are doing. While this deck is mono, I'd still splash in Orzhov Signet or Dimir Signet instead of these. It gives you black mana, and you're not doing a 1-for-1 trade from colorless to black.

I'd also add Warping Wail into this deck. While it can only counter sorceries. The other card to consider to help lock down your opponent until you can get hailfire out is Torment of Scarabs. Otherwise +1

Philoctetes on Licia, the Sanguine Storm

zombob57 I love that suggestion! I haven't felt great about Cabal Ritual in the deck, I will happily replace with Burnt Offering. I will add Sacrifice to the maybeboard for now, but it could be that I want both.

I will also be finding room for Sunbeam Spellbomb, probably replacing Tavern Swindler. After goldfishing with this a bunch of times, Tavern Swindler just feels too cute, and Sunbeam Spellbomb can cycle if you don't need the lifegain to up my cantrip count.

I'm also considering Icatian Moneychanger, although I'm not sure if more one shot lifegain type cards are where I want to head. I think I may need to shore up the cantrip count for Spells Matters payoffs.

I would highly recommend for rituals running Sacrifice and Burnt Offering because Licia has a cmc of 8, and if you gained a bunch of life can just recast her for 3. Just a really cool interaction with the commander.

merrowMania on Razaketh Storm

Trtl - Apprentice lets you ramp into Razaketh, while Priest is a free creature.

Gigi - First, Deathmark is probably a meta card, so that can come out for Priest. Codex Shredder seems too mana intensive to be relevant and can be replaced with Sacrifice. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead were probably meant to reanimate Sidisi, so they can be replaced with Unearth (to get a cheap creature to tutor again) and Bob.

I just put together a decklist. The tricky part is getting enough creatures to go off while ramping. It's definitely going to be broken though. All you need is 2 to 4 other creatures besides Razaketh and you can go off.

Possible combos using card you'd be playing anyway include:

You can also tutor Sacrifice for an 8 mana ritual that ensures you go off same turn.

You can cut down on the creatures you need to sacrifice by tutoring Buried Alive for anything that need to be in the graveyard (or Bloodghast) and by using Rings of Brighthearth to double the tutor ability.

So... Yeah. There's a very good likelihood that Razaketh will get banned.

I'll post the decklist when it's a little more refined.
