Shizo, Death's Storehouse Discussion

Ripwater on Meren of Clan Nel Toth: Dig up her Bones

3 hours ago

Frank_Glascock I decided to make 2 more changes on the landbase. In my opinion the Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket are too bad to have in our opening hand compared to the ability to cycle them later on. I really really don't like taplands. And in my opinion these just won't do it.

The replacements are the following: Cavern of Souls just to protect meren from being countered. And a lot more sustainable then the catsnake. And Shizo, Death's Storehouse basically you can consider this a finisher with a big Yahenni or a sheoldred coming for face. Worst case it's a swamp that enter untapped. I see no reason not to run it :)

Daedalus19876 Thank you very much for your feedback. The cards you mentioned from my maybes were pretty much the exact ones I've selected so that's very reassuring.

All the other suggestions are great, thank you. I was already swapping Luminarch Ascension for Bitterblossom so good to get your encouragement on that swap. I don't own Vampiric Tutor atm. My current budget substitute is Diabolic Intent which I could use for the same purpose. Any other card draw you could reccomend in place of Damnable Pact ? I just bought a copy of Tymna the Weaver so I guess I can swap in her for Pact. I think Altar's Reap is possibly weak too, but I do sorta like having a surprise instant speed sac effect.

I should have explained but I don't tend to run Toxic Deluge at the moment because there is one guy in our playgroup who always plays big mana big creature green based decks with commmanders including Arixmethes and xenagos. He also runs lots of cards that double creatures power and double +1+1 counters etc so the creatures often end up extremely big so Elenda, the Dusk Rose is often not the biggest creature and Toxic Deluge frustratingly is just not as good as usual against his decks as the amount of life you have to pay is sometimes huge and sometimes even unpayable. It's possible the card is still good enough tho and I should give it more of a try because maybe I've underestimated how I can gain that life back same turn or get to a life total where I can pay. I run Path to Exile over Swords to Plowshares for a similar reason but again I'm open to trying out Swords to Plowshares especially as this friend is moving this month so the meta is going to change.

This decklist is still in quite an experimental stage and The Elderspell is something I have been just trying, partly as an alt wincon with the new Liliana, Dreadhorde General . I agree that it seems loose and I should cut it for one of the ones you highly recommend like Reaper from the Abyss .

I have a copy of Bolas's Citadel and would never have thought of it for this deck so thanks so much for that idea. I'll def try it. I will add back Swiftfoot Boots too but I cut Lightning Greaves because it stops me targeting Elenda, the Dusk Rose with effects like Hatred and Shizo, Death's Storehouse . Do you def think Lightning Greaves is better given that drawback?

Do you think Cabal Conditioning could be worth trying as a late game finisher to tutor? Or does Sadistic Hypnotist fulfil that function well enough?

One new card I was extremely impressed with was God-Eternal Bontu I ended up 1v1 against my friend on a Ruric Thar deck and I was recurring Bontu and he was recurring Ilharg, the Raze-Boar and the card advantage from Bontu in a token deck won out.

Your deck was such a good staring point thank you. Certain synergies like Elspeth, Sun's Champion + Martyr's Cause are just so good!!

Laboratory Maniac + Paradigm Shift does work like this: Paradigm Shift does exchange your library with your graveyard. If you have not many cards in the graveyard, then you may win pretty easy with Laboratory Maniac and any draw card.

With Doomsday you are able to put your cards in your library you need to win the game. Fantastic with Laboratory Maniac . A little bit of a risk to play this card. But wow, what an impact does this card make. Guess every opponent can't believe the awesomeness of playing this card.

On the other hand, if you are not going into this idea please take a look at "The Many-Faced God" - [[Primer]], because this deck works nearly the same as your deck wants to work.

If you are going to buy any of this card, please don't haste. This deck needs many test games to see what cards will word and what cards won't. There are many expensive cards you don't need at all. Like Wasteland . Play Strip Mine , this card is cheaper to buy and is better. The only reason that Wasteland is expensive is that Wasteland is unbanned in the popular MTG Play Format "Legacy" and Strip Mine is banned.

You may reduce costs in you lands, if you like to get a more budget reasonable deck. Bloodstained Mire , Marsh Flats , Polluted Delta are way too expensive for their effect. They are 1) better in other formats like Legacy or Modern and 2) you are playing 2 colors, so normally you have both colors available. Sunken Ruins , Minamo, School at Water's Edge , Shizo, Death's Storehouse are good if you have them already, otherwise they won't make that big impact (They are indeed good cards, just saying) if you need to buy them.

Spirits on Kaalia of the Cruel

1 month ago

Hey LordKunai,

Here's some recommendations, budget conscious where I can be.

Lightning Greaves is a critical component of Kaalia of the Vast , I play multiple tutors for it, like Steelshaper's Gift and Stoneforge Mystic . Lightning Greaves is a must, if you can't connect a Haste Kaalia of the Vast swing your going to have a bad time.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a staple, the double ended effect is really the key. She is a bit pricey, so I'll offer some other options tool.

Angel of Despair , I believe is $0.25, another key removal for any permanent! like an Omniscience and drop her in off of an opponents Show and Tell . #Winning

Lands are important, but expensive, Blood Crypt because it's both a Swamp and Mountain is good, Godless Shrine same idea but Plains . Works with the check lands like Isolated Chapel .

Anguished Unmaking & Path to Exile good removal if you have, expensive to buy elsewise. Utter End & Mortify are cheaper alternatives but still exceptional removal spells.

Battlefield Forge is cheap and gives good color indexing. Diabolic Tutor is still okay at CMC4 and very inexpensive to all the reprinting of this tutor.

I would try and hone in on a desired goal and synergize around that. Mine is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel , Land Destruction / Indestructible, Liliana's Contract / Shadowborn Apostle type decks, Worldgorger Dragon , Extra Combat Phases.

You have a little bit of Legendary sub-theme, some protecting yourself and Kaalia of the Vast sub-theme Magus of the Moat / Boros Charm , some recursion with Phyrexian Reclamation . You've got a very strong base of cards, once you pick a synergy, you definitely want to synergize around those core abilities.

You have lots of great cards, and I bet it's extremely fun to play! The Signet's are good, Talisman of Indulgence is cheap and better, I also feel like in most situations Fellwar Stone is better than the signet too. But because of the cost of the other mana sources, augmenting with Signets is a fantastic idea.

I don't like Subterranean Tremors , small ground walkers should matter too much to you, and all of your ramp comes from artifacts so destroying those is not a great idea. If your getting a Lizard, something is off the rails. Something like Vandalblast is better for Artifact control.

Never been a fan of Rogue's Passage , CMC5 for unblockable is too much, perhaps try something like Shizo, Death's Storehouse .

Crackling Doom another card that gets around indestructible, but so do things like Utter End or Anguished Unmaking . Crackling Doom is very unlikely to get what you really need it to solve.

Chancellor of the Annex doesn't seem strong enough for the CMC7, or Stax enough. Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems a little out of place, the A/D/D are pretty tough on their own, if you have enough where engaging Odric, Lunarch Marshal to multiply their abilities you should be winning anyway without him.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip is similar to Angelic Guardian but a little more versatile.

Sneak Attack another way to cheat things in, similar to Quicksilver Amulet .

I don't see anything out of place here, other than some of my comments.

Adarkar Valkyrie has many infinite combos (like infinite combat with Aurelia, the Warleader ) for example. I have a bunch under my Alternative Synergies Considered if your interested. She's powerful, can establish some combos, and fits the build in a budget format.

Ripwater on Orzhov Legendary

1 month ago

Rome921,

Have you considered Arvad the Cursed ? I might even play him as your commander, since he gives an anthem effect (+2/+2) and drop Athreos in the 99. Honestly Atreos shines when he protects low CMC creatures. I don't think you will find a lot of people not paying the 3 life when 1 of your, often very powerfull, creatures dies. Next to that you play black and have a range of (under $9) tutors to fetch him.

You could throw in a little token/lifegain theme as support (very Orzhov) and play your deck as the guild extorting people and if they don't pay up exile their creatures. (Then Atreos might be super on theme again).

Legendaries I would run in a token/lifegain theme are: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim Teysa, Orzhov Scion Karlov of the Ghost Council Kambal, Consul of Allocation Obzedat, Ghost Council Teysa Karlov Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts Regna, the Redeemer / Krav, the Unredeemed Ghost Council of Orzhova Vona, Butcher of Magan Aryel, Knight of Windgrace Elenda, the Dusk Rose Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Whisper, Blood Liturgist Darien, King of Kjeldor Heliod, God of the Sun Brimaz, King of Oreskos Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle Oketra the True Elspeth, Sun's Champion Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Kaya, Orzhov Usurper Eight-and-a-Half-Tails

Support these guys with the following cards: Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Dictate of Erebos Grave Pact Smothering Tithe Ethereal Absolution Dawn of Hope Skullclamp Suture Priest Blood Artist Zulaport Cutthroat Crested Sunmare Regal Bloodlord Pious Evangel  Flip Authority of the Consuls Blind Obedience Anointed Procession Hidden Stockpile Vindictive Vampire Twilight Drover Mentor of the Meek Priest of Forgotten Gods Pitiless Plunderer High Market Shizo, Death's Storehouse Divine Visitation Intangible Virtue Attrition

A few sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar

And ofc, you have your generic Orzhov stuff like Path to Exile , Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , Wrath of God , Merciless Eviction

What maybe would also work are all the Afterlife dudes like: Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker

Of course all of this above is just a suggestion. I think in this way you can easily you can keep the Legendary theme alive in your deck, but point in a bit more towards the Orzhov Syndicate. (wich in my opinion is an awesome guild!!) I think I kept a bit on a eye on your budget of $9 a card. If I missed a few my apologies.

Master_J on [[Primer]] Karlov's Will

Hey, comment on your latest changes, I'd keep the Swiftfoot Boots and drop the Lightning Greaves , especially if you want to target Karlov with Shizo, Death's Storehouse or Rogue's Passage .
