Shadows of the Past Discussion

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:

Pain for everyone:

Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction

No creatures for You!

Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.

Punishment and protection

Pia's Revolution, War's Toll, Bitter Feud (kinda a furnace of wrath - but only for those two against each other), Defense Grid.

probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking

All the elementals![%22Elemental%22]

Cards to cut: Rings of Brighthearth, Ashes of the Fallen (super cool but you want to build the deck to be all elementals anyway), Arc Runner, Ball Lightning, Ball Lightning, Unexpectedly Absent (better removal in edh), Eyes of the Wisent, Hoofprints of the Stag, Shadows of the Past

Shadows of the Past could work really well in this deck for an infinite scry into your other win cons

This deck is a decent base, however it is a little too focused on sacrifice triggers, and not enough on sacrifice value. Your commander and a few cards in the deck will be enough sac outlets, what you really need is fodder and value.

For lands go to they will show you all possible mana fixings. Don't run any nonbasics that arn't highly effective, such as Pirahna Marsh.

I recently made a Yahenni deck of my own. Yahenni, Former Aristocrat. I run a low curve based on getting cheap creatures out and use sac to generate card draw/mana.

Cards you need in this deck: Ashnod's Altar, Skullclamp, Viscera Seer.

Other Suggestions: Black Market (ramp into big guys), Massacre Wurm, Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Boardwipes are your friend. When you blow up the board and leave a 50/50 commander behind, someone tends to die. Look for things like Plaguewind, Crux of Fate, Decree of Pain, etc.

Cards to cut:

Spellbook (Waste of a Card Slot), Renegade's Getaway (Low effect), Baneful Omen (Too expensive), Altar of Dementia (Mill does nothing), Shadows of the Past (Low impact), Price of Knowledge (Too expensive)

Fear but yea its intimidate but specifics black rather then using the creatures color.

something like Dauthi Embrace, Power Matrix, may be more useful for added evasion as black creatures and artifacts are commonplace.

id drop cards like Entomb, Herald of Anguish, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, Gonti's Machinations for cards that interact more with your main plan, or have a bigger impact on the game/are more efficient.

cards like Oversold Cemetery, Shadows of the Past, Killing Wave and Victim of Night may be worth looking at, as are cards like Mephidross Vampire, Vampire Hexmage, Bloodline Keeper  Flip and maybe even things like Smallpox, Decree of Pain, Do or Die, Boompile, Worldslayer, and Season of the Witch and Stripmine/Wasteland.

Hi I am not one to comment on decks. Infact I only signed up for this website to comment on this deck. I am also not a master deck builder but I really like this deck Idea and want to help you build it. First I think you should keep Heartless Summoning and I also like your addition of Falkenrath Noble. You should also add Noxious Revival and Shimmer Myr to go of at instant speed, and for your combo I think you should add Junk Diver. Also if you are going to add white add Idyllic Tutor and maybe Athreos, God of Passage. Viscera Seer will die to Heartless Summoning so maybe Shadows of the Past. This is a weird idea but maybe Remembrance. Just some ideas but I love the deck.
