Sadistic Sacrament Discussion

I learn something new everyday; here's the sideboarded version you requested: Black Control vs Schwarze Sonne.

I reside in America, and being my favorite color comes from playing Gray Merchant of Asphodel in my early days. My collection became focused on making the most out of it for awhile after. It was a simple strategy: swarm the board with permanents, and use cards like Read the Bones and Sign in Blood to reach Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Then use the large amount of life to draw into another.

From the two matches I playtested, Sadistic Sacrament was certainly beneficial: your deck ran enough one-ofs to where if I had chosen Infinite Obliteration for preemptively dealing with threats instead, it'd have done me little good. I lost the first match, and barely won the second one.

Hi Lord_Khaineit is easy to make a sideboardversion: just copy your deck and change the cards from main to side. that's how I make them.what do you think fits best against my deck? I think try as follows: -1x Victim of Night, -1xInquisition of Kozilek, -1xThoughtseize, -1xPain Seer, +4xSadistic Sacrament

The inability to playtest with sideboards on tappedout is one of my biggest frustrations. So far, my best way of getting around this is writing what card in the main deck got swapped out on paper, so whenever I draw that card, I go "hey, Vampire Nighthawk is actually Sadistic Sacrament."

Any other cards besides Sadistic Sacrament you want me to make a switched-out version for, and what cards to switch for that case?

it would be nice if you create a sideboard version (I thing with Sadistic Sacrament in it) agains my deck to playtest again.

Infinite Obliteration, Duress, Stain the Mind, Sadistic Sacrament, and/or Memoricide. Might help get rid of some threats. I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

I know you stated you dont like infinite combos die to tutors, but you can still run combos without tutors. With said Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void is an infinite mill combo. Regardless if you want to run the combo or not i would still run Leyline of the Void to exile opponents stuff when you mill it.

Other great mill/exile cards are oona queen of the far and Grindstone. Chuff_Bucket stated earlier to run sphinxs tutalege and Grindstone has nice redundancy.

One card i absolutely love is Sadistic Sacrament the triple black might be a tad steep bit i think ot is still worth it. Making yourself able to pick and choose which cards you want out of an opponents deck is invaluable, especially if they are playing combo and you know their pieces.

Thats all i got for now.

In a tron heavy meta, Ghost Quarter makes an impact. Damping Matrix works pretty well too. All told sideboard looks good-

On the eldritch evolution note Kitchen Finks is a staple for a reason, and running some chord and Melira, Sylvok Outcast makes it a silly combo deck. Otherwise, I'd be splashing green for Collected Company and graveyard shenanigans. Seeing that meta, test sideboard Mimic Vat. It interrupts persist with an exile trigger on your opponent's turn (they can still combo in theirs) and if you can kill a big creature from regular tron it stalls the game neatly, dodging all is dust. YMMV against weirder tron setups. If you're more of a traditionalist Shadow of Doubt completely stops Expedition Map, Chord of Calling etc to help prevent setup. Bitter Ordeal is your ideal anti combo tool here- if you're prepared to ditch that gravecrawler and seer early you can remove a player's tron, or just a bunch of differently named key cards. If you do go G/B infinite sacrifice combo, it lets you exile a players' library. Sadistic Sacrament does work, but many other options have the 'nonland' listing.

Evil Presence is a great choice- Contaminated Ground can be a few more copies if you want to go all in on that.

This does play a little against your gameplan though as most of it doesn't come with attached bodies, so you should watch out for that tempo loss. I'd probably run whip SB against a less combo-y meta, to swap with bitterblossom or creatures. You aren't running Gray Merchant of Asphodel to nuke an opponent and swing back the life totals, and aren't losing too much life to anything bar bitterblossom, so its pretty much a per matchup basis.

When I build EDH combo decks I have this personal criteria that I try to follow that I call the Sadistic Sacrament Rule. Basically, it's a thought experiment that goes, "If an opponent was able to take any three cards they wanted out of my deck, do I still have a game plan?" It's a criteria that can occasionally run counter to optimization, but it tends to work out for me. The more redundancy and synergy I can build into the deck, the better. Decks with very linear game plans don't work for me; my horrible luck means that I tend to draw the worst starting hands and top-decks imaginable, so those decks usually fall apart and under-perform when I pilot them.
