Sewer Nemesis

Creature — Horror

ACDAMAN on Weenies Who Smile At Death

ClockworkSwordfish Thanks for the suggestions! I'm thinking of doing Arcbound Overseer Archetype of Finality Clone Shell and Sewer Nemesis targeting me.

What would you suggest to take out?

ClockworkSwordfish on Weenies Who Smile At Death

If you want some late game punch, the trick with Alesha is to run creatures who are much bigger than their printed stats suggest! For instance, Arcbound Overseer, Clockwork Dragon, Sewer Nemesis and Ignition Team all have 0 power while they're in the graveyard, but much more when they come into play. It can almost feel dirty, but nothing beats the feeling of paying two mana to reanimate your Pentavus.

Other creatures worth considering include Garza's Assassin (you can kill a creature every turn!), Thought Gorger for the potential size and ability to discard other reanimation targets, Ravenous Baboons, Herald of Leshrac, Flayer of the Hatebound, Epochrasite, Clone Shell, Bone Shredder, Nighthowler, Murderous Redcap... plenty of nasty creatures that have good synergy with Alesha.

To protect your commander in combat, it might also be nice to have ways to give her deathtouch. Basilisk Collar is the classic, but note that Archetype of Finality can be brought back by her ability!

I feel like Sewer Nemesis should be included. You can even name yourself if you're feeling particularly Dredgey, and Vulturous Zombie would get along fine with some of the mill going on in your deck.

This deck occupies a critical segment of your color wheel. You may be able to find some ideas there.

Check out this deck for some ideas.

Why not run Phenax, God of Deception and Mesmeric Orb?

You run Dark Depths, give Thespian's Stage and Mirage Mirror a look. They're each individually flavorful and the copiers combo for a big creature that's very useful but surprisingly not all that degenerate in Commander.

Also decks with Dark Depths should run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and or Chromatic Lantern so it can produce its snow mana. Plus they can give your colors a bit more regularity.

Sewer Nemesis might be a good call as well.

I'd also think Traumatize would be particularly good in a Lazav deck.

I would consider The Scarab God and Mesmeric Orb. The Scarab provides you a nice little adjustable clock and triggers Ludviec pretty reliably and The Orb amps up your mill game and can be recurred easily with one of your commanders.

Less impactfully:

Blightsteel Colossus is strictly better than his pre-phyrexia alter ego; I would definitely run Sewer Nemesis or Consuming Aberration over Bonehoard.

Tezzeret the Seeker can go get you any artifact up to 4 mana, even if you can't defend him.

Mindslaver adds a neat shift to the political climate in EDH. Make your enemies friend into his enemy.

In a Red capable self mill deck Feldon of the Third Path and Goblin Welder might be strong additions.

Faithless Looting is good. Also there are a lot of really good tutors out there I would look into acquiring,

And you shouldn't really consider Mindcrank to combo solely with Bloodchief Ascension. If you ran Duskmantle Guildmage too it might be worth consideration but it would still be a dead card 9 times out of 10 unlike The Orb.

Barsan, Consuming Aberration isn't a Zombie, and through testing I discovered that having it die due to a Kozilek or Ulamog shuffle is no fun. Intruder Alarm kills the deck if I don't get good draws. Never tried Sewer Nemesis or Thousand-Year Elixir, but I intend to sometime. Thanks!

I feel like Consuming Aberration and Sewer Nemesis belong in any Phenax deck. Intruder Alarm and Thousand-Year Elixir might be useful additions as well.

Barsan on Consume: by Phenax

The main problem I see with Keening Stone is the mana cost. Even if I don't activate on the first turn 5 per activation is a little steep and on most turns that would take up most of my mana. Comparatively, Sewer Nemesis and Consuming Aberration provide additional mill via abilities, can usually block creatures of any power as soon as they hit and are free to activate after the initial investment. Also I can untap them with Umbral Mantle or Thousand-Year Elixir
