Sewer Nemesis

Creature — Horror

As Sewer Nemesis enters the battlefield, choose a player.

Sewer Nemesis's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in chosen player's graveyard.

Whenever the chosen player casts a spell, that player puts the top card of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

Rekkoha001Nope, imho casting phenax immediately can only makes it(and you) a big target and in addition you will not be able to activate his ability immediately( unless you have something like Thousand-Year Elixir on the battlefield).. The best thing to do is to play it when you have some walls or monsters like Consuming Aberration,Sewer Nemesis already on the battlefield to activate his ability in the same turn.

I feel Sewer Nemesis and Mortivore should be in this deck. They fit great here. Awesome deck though! +1.

No Custodi Soulbinders? Gets positively massive on a heavy board state.

Also, Sewer Nemesis can get similarly big against graveyard decks, as its P/T off the battlefield are 0/0.

My Suggestions:


Those "big butts" are perfect with Phenax, God of Deception

-ArchaeomancerorMnemonic Wall:It could be powerful to get back a TraumatizeorCyclonic Riftand play it again :)

-Eater of the Dead..With Phenax makes a Devastating combo. The price is under 5-6

Other cards:

-Mesmeric Orb:i know it's not a cheap card but I love it.It makes a nice combo with Psychic Spiral.

Propaganda:to protect yourself specially in the first turns.

Relic of Progenitus and Crypt Incursion are great graveyard removals.

Thousand-Year Elixir:to activate Phenax's ability immediately!

Anyway nice Deck, have fun:D

My Mill deck might have a few items you would find useful, particularly Mesmeric Orb which mills active players and Sands of Time which has many uses in a Phenax deck. (All under (Ab)using the stack in my Pilot's Guide)

Sewer Nemesis is a must if you want another gigantic Horror.

Sewer Nemesis's P/T will be defined in any zone including the graveyard so unfortunately it doesn't work well with Alesha.

Deck looks sweet though! +1 from me.

Tree of Perdition probably won't be killed by a block.

Sewer Nemesis Reads as having 0 power until it enters the field.

Look at my Phenax deck for ideas, some items are budget some are not.

Fraying Sanity is one item that won't be there but I think you could use it, especially considering you run Traumatize.

Sewer Nemesis and Duskmantle Guildmage are two budget creatures that can be used with efficiency in a Phenax deck.

And Eater of the Dead gives you a wincon against creature heavy decks.

Look at the Pilot's guide on that link and tell me if you see anything you can use.

(I guess Sewer Nemesis and Eater of the Dead have gone up since I built the deck... they're still useful though.)
