Tarlfgar on Waste Your Combo Not

1 week ago

Darth_Savage I think Reforge the Soul would be an amazing addition here. I overlooked it because I only looked for cards with lower mana costs, I didn't even consider there can be a Miracle card that's suitable for my deck, thanks!

A very early version of this deck did feature cards like Whispers of Emrakul and Wrench Mind, but in the end these discards were not potent enough- Dark Deal or Reforge the Soul that you mentioned can cause a 7-card discard, and even Burning Inquiry is a 3-card discard for one mana.

After all, my intent is not to lock my opponent out of cards, but to make them discard a lot (and thus get creatures, cards and mana from Waste Not). Gnat Miser is a no-go for the same reason.

Sign in Blood might be a good addition here, it's very versatile. Seizan, Perverter of Truth would be even better, but it's a very costly creature- by the fifth turn an FNM game is usually over.

Do you maybe have any card suggestions for surviving before the combo gets activated? I haven't played against any control-heavy deck with it yet, even in playtests, so I'm not really sure what pieces could help. Thanks for your input!

Some thoughts...

Reforge the Soul, would give you another Wheel of Fate effect.

Sign in Blood, says target player, you can use it on yourself or your opponent, or have it on a stick Seizan, Perverter of Truth.

Barbed Shocker, Incendiary Command and Chandra Ablaze, don't cause a draw of 7, but do discard hand and draw the same number of cards, or 3 anyway.

Gnat Miser, reduces a players max hand size, Kederekt Parasite hurts them when they draw, as long as you have a red creature, enchantment, planeswalker or artifact.

Liliana's Caress, deals damage based on discard, Runeflare Trap does it based on draw.

Tasigur's Cruelty, has delve and discards 2 cards, though Wrench Mind exists and with a little work Whispers of Emrakul.

This is just off the top of my head (to be fair I have a deck which plays in this space Grixis Owl-ing Mine) so there are probably more... Hope this inspires you, good luck brewing your deck.

maxon: any card that discourages an opponent from playing a certain way. Examples (as I probably described that in a not-great way) include Dread and No Mercy to discourage attacking me, Aura of Silence and Seal of Cleansing to discourage artifacts and enchantments, and Portcullis and Grave Peril to discourage creatures

I’d say most removal, counterspell, and fog effects can be used politically, especially if they’re repeatable. Cracking Spore Frog in Meren of Clan Nel Toth to save an opponent could have them owe you a debt, or pointing a removal spell at the Mind Over Matter or other combo piece can curry favor with every at the table (except the guy trying to combo off). This probably wasn’t exactly what you were looking for, but I think it’s worth mentioning.

Seizan, Perverter of Truth is kind of an option in black, although some might not look as well upon it due to the life loss. Also, Font of Mythos

Starke of Rath is on-theme, although removing stuff might lead to less choice overall

I assumed you've already discounted Seizan, Perverter of Truth & Nekusar, the Mindrazer as alternatives to Bloodgift Demon?

Heliogabale on It's Beginning to Look a lot like Grixis

Gotta love a nice Nekusar deck!

You have Fate Unraveler in the Maybe, I would move that to the main without hesitation.

I strongly suggest Fevered Visions and Spiteful Visions; both are (0,60$). Another 0,50$ card, Whispering Madness would work well with Whispersilk Cloak.

Creatures that fit your theme include Viseling (0,25$), Master of the Feast (0,75$), Kami of the Crescent Moon (0,75$) and Seizan, Perverter of Truth (4,50$).

You can get Reforge the Soul for about 4$. I made many kills with Teferi's Puzzle Box (7$).

To make space I would take out anything relating to discard and life gain, they look stretched thin across the deck and seem to be diluting the synergy.

All suggestions are from my deck Drawing Your Last Breath, please feel free to look and comment!

Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer [[PRIMER]]

Hi kopil999, thaks for the comment.

The Locust God synergizes really well with this deck, you could run it if you want. The only problem is that it's a 6 CMC that will not win the game in the spot or bring me close to it. I think it would be better to run a "wheel" based deck with the God as it commander than trying to fit him in a Nekusar's build. We don't have cards to support creatures in this build (like a Coat of Arms i.e.)

I used to run both Seizan, Perverter of Truth and Master of the Feast alongside with cards like Font of Mythos, Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon. When nobody knows your game strategy they are nice, but with time they will turn you in a target for the rest of the table. I reckon it's better to forcefeed your opponents with extra draws only when you're going to finish them

I've never thought about trying Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, but it is an excellent card to protect our commander. The only inssue is that we really aren't THIS dependent of having Nekusar in play. Sure, it is the general and we'll always be able cast it from the CZ, but creatures are much easier to remove than enchantments like Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress.

Hey, what do you think of running The Locust God in this deck? Also, what about creatures like Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Master of the Feast and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner.

Agriyon on Kaervek - Symmetrical Pain

7 months ago

Nice deck list. I've been looking at making a Kaervek punish deck since I've turned my old Rakdos suicide deck into a tribal demon deck. Some of my favorite cards form that deck were Manabarbs, Citadel of Pain, Havoc Festival, Sulfuric Vortex, Spellshock, Planar Chaos, Storm Cauldron, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Angel's Trumpet, Mass Hysteria, Grand Melee, Avatar of Slaughter, Avarice Amulet, Spiteful Visions, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Temple Bell, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Geier Reach Sanitarium. I love Toxic Deluge in my suicide deck as a board wipe. If you're looking for more pay life to kill creatures there's also Phyrexian Purge, Fire Covenant, Slaughter, Hellfire, and Ashes to Ashes as well as Repay in Kind which helps brings opponent down to your level after hurting yourself. Possibility Storm could be a nice inclusion as well if it works the way I think it does with Kaervek. Opponent casts a spell and both Kaervek and Possibility Storm trigger, the spell gets exiled and if your opponent plays the other card with Possibility Storm then Kaervek will trigger again.
