ZendikariWol on I sold my soul to the devil...

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.

Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing  Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!

stellarstormtrooper66 on Tey is cray

I can tell just by looking at this briefly that this build has been improved over time as it looks very refined. As I am not experienced with this commander, take my comments with a grain of salt as you are more of the expert here.

I wonder if you could make use of more token producers - specifically ones that make at least 3 1/1 creatures at a time in order to use Teysa's first ability on demand if she's the only creature in play. Cards that come to mind include: Sengir Autocrat, Benevolent Offering, Increasing Devotion, Entrapment Maneuver, Spectral Procession, Martial Coup.

I think you could explore morbid a little more, some cool ones include Skirsdag High Priest, Reaper from the Abyss, Tragic Slip. Tragic Slip could improve your mana curve by replacing Murder.

I think more card draw effects would be nice. I'm very surprised to not see Mentor of the Meek in here. I would argue that Read the Bones is strictly better than Painful Lesson. But overall I would consider adding a few more, some that come to mind that play well are: Damnable Pact, Skeletal Scrying, Blood Divination, Altar's Reap, Ancient Craving.

I think you could use more mana ramp. Besides mana rocks, you could take advantage of treasures with cards like Pitiless Plunderer.

Not sure if you've thought about focusing on strong cards that care about low CMC. Besides Mentor of the Meek, other cool cards could be added (some would even interact with Teysa): Unearth, Sun Titan, Reveillark, Citywide Bust.

Fun cards that come to mind that you could add:

Lastly, a few cards I think could possibility be cut for any of the above (I am often eager to cut high CMC cards btw):

  • Treasury Thrull - a good effect I'll admit, but I'm just not thrilled with the 6 CMC. If reviving creatures is your main goal, something like a Hell's Caretaker's effect for less mana might be better.
  • Voldaren Pariah  Flip - at her cmc with that effect, I think I'd rather run a board wipe instead
  • Vizkopa Confessor - looks like a fun card, but I don't like the CMC.
  • Profane Command - I don't know that this should be cut, but I'd encourage you to really ask yourself which modes you typically use because you might be able to get a card with the desired mode for less mana. If X spells are a way for you close out the game, you could consider Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.
  • Tamiyo's Journal - looks like a fun card, but idk about the cmc, requires a long game before providing lots of value.
  • Tainted Sigil - I've never seen this card before, does it pay off well? I just don't like that people can see it on the board.

Overall, very impression decklist - glad you rebuilt it. Eager to face it next week.

Gadianten on Krav/Regna 2 Face Tails

Your creatures dying punishing your opponents is good but I feel you lack fuel for the stacks approach and your commander in general. With that in mind I have some token generators that might help with that: Abhorrent Overlord, Evangel of Heliod, Captain of the Watch, Cloudgoat Ranger, Geist-Honored Monk, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Infernal Genesis, Leonin Warleader, Ophiomancer, Pawn of Ulamog, Secure the Wastes, Sengir Autocrat, Skirsdag High Priest. I have tried to choose creatures that were efficient in general and gain value with reanimation.

A couple of useful creatures to consider as well: Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Neat ideal with the two faced deck.

Guerte on [[Primer]] Gonti - Night Market Shenanigans

4 months ago

So, playing Gonti means almost no artifact/enchantment removal. In order to cover that, I have to run N-Disk and O-Stone, which puts a damper on things if I have a bunch of stuff out. I’ve been trying out Meteor Golem as a way to get rid of those things without blowing up my board. I’ve been really impressed thus far and am thinking about replacing them with something else. I’m currently thinking of Sengir Autocrat as another option for infinite mana with Deathmantle/Altar (this would make it option 4; is that too many?) and Sandstone Oracle for card draw. Would these be good choices, or should I find something else? I have a whole list of other options.

Shinwizzles on Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH: To Make an Omelette

6 months ago

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.

As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.

I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.

I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

Bulletproofcats on [Primer] Nightmare by Design

Savaaage hmm...I am going to get a few games in with Sengir Autocrat over Gravecrawler that does seem tasty. Twilight Prophet is a card I want to so badly love, but you are right on the bait aspect. It usually draws removal instantly and isn't the best reanimation target.

Personally i'd rather run Sengir Autocrat over Wurmcoil Engine or Gravecrawler. Nets 1 positive and one extra life w/ Phyrexian Altar, and fuels the 3/3 Life costs per Chainer's activation. Serfs are also great fodder for Skullclamp.

Twilight Prophet seems like a trap/bait card for now (from an reanimator perspective)... I've been interested in including in my list but haven't gotten around to it yet. I think it's better suited in a stax/control archetype like Xiahou Dun Control.

@usaDiabetic

The deck was under 150$ when I made it, but that's since changed. I'm making some cuts to try to get under that limit again.

As for your suggestions:

Bitterblossom is far too expensive($) for the deck.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is also very expensive($), but may be powerful enough to make the cut at some point. I'll keep it in mind; thanks!

I love Kormus Bell, but it is a little too high risk, seeing as I lose all my lands to a board wipe. Also, I will be saccing my lands on the combo turn to Rain of Filth already.

Breeding Pit requires too much of a mana investment on turns where I want to be ramping.

I already have Sengir Autocrat in the deck. 99% of the time he is one of the first things I fetch with Razaketh.

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is an option I had looked at when I first started brewing, but had dismissed as too expensive(). However, I now realize that if he is down and I cast Razaketh, the Foulblooded, I get 8 tokens, which is simply game over for my opponents. I'll put him in.

Thanks for your suggestions!
