Sadistic Sacrament Discussion

I get that its important, but your losing 2 cards for one. In the case of Mox Diamond, you can just play the land instead of discarding it and making a mana source that is prone to artifact destruction. I get it can help with early Talrand, but what do you do when you draw it late game?

I get that, just thought you might want another one was well. Once people know what your wincon is, they can just use Jester's Cap or Card:Sadistic sacrament among other cards to get rid of them before you draw them.

Moreover, I used to run Mana Crypt but it often killed me more times than my opponents did.

Profet93, I would deal with it in the way we have at our LGS and Meta. Explain to the other players that every magic combo or effects can be answered, they just have to build it into their decks and offer to help. This helps the meta get stronger and well rounded. Sadistic Sacrament, Jester's Cap,Counterspell,Disallow all stop a lot of things. If you build your decks for multiplayer then you need to be able to deal with more than one style eg: mill, infect, etb triggers, infinite combos, grave recursion etc. You can not stop everything, but at least have a plan for some.

I find Sadistic Sacrament to be helpful against combo decks.

Your deck seems to focus on discard, mill and zombie generation (I don't know what the last part is for). Considering your commander, I think you'd be better off focusing on mill exclusively. In terms of artifacts, I'd really recommend adding both Mindcrank and Keening Stone; especially that last one makes thing go out of hand quick.

In terms of creatures, I'd suggest adding some walls. Both blue and black have several cheap ones and they're great to start draining those libraries fast. Hedron Crab is an especially nasty start of a game for your opponents and Guiltfeeder can be especially strong in this deck too.

Sorceries are where this deck could really start getting crazy. Some additions I believe you should definitely consider are Increasing Confusion, Mind Funeral, Psychic Drain, Card:Sadistic sacrament and Startled Awake  Flip. All of these can cause massive drain on libraries and sacrament can even remove someone's entire combo pool.

Last but not least, in terms of enchantments, Jace's Erasure and Memory Erosion's effects can really stack up during games, and they're cheap to cast so you can use them relatively early.

Hope any of this has helped you. Let me know.

Happy gaming!

Also, if you are running a creature lite deck, I would recommend running cards like Life's Finale and Card:Sadistic sacrament to remove cards like Bane of Progress. Lobotomizing effects are also very good vs combo decks, removing cards like Deadeye Navigator/Peregrine Drake.

Silent Arbiter can slow your opponents down. Some other cards you might want to add so you can really limit options for your opponents. Gonti, Lord of Luxury can swipe spells from your opponents, as would both Sadistic Sacrament and Praetor's Grasp. Nirkana Revenant would double your black mana production so you can use more spells.

Kinda budget:

You need 4x Thought-Knot Seer

3-4x Reality Smasher


Dismember instead of Diabolic Tutor

Non Budget:1x Wurmcoil Engine

1x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

2-3x Karn Liberated

2 All Is Dust

4x Walking Ballista

What you should remove:I'm a big fan of Memoricide and Sadistic Sacrament but most of the time it's not usefull in most games.

Silent Skimmer

Watchers of the Dead

Diabolic Tutor

Battle at the Bridge is fine but Dismember is better

Dash Hopes will never do what you want it to do.

Doom Blade should be Fatal Push or budget Go for the Throat depending on your local meta

Hope this helps!
