Songs of the Damned Discussion

This deck is so cool.

Would Silence be a good card to include? It can shut off a player when you go to combo.

I also think Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual would be good includes. They would allow you to win the same turn you get 6 Shadowborn Apostles in play as long as you have untapped and Teysa in play. Because then you tutor Razaketh, use the 6 tokens to tutor Edgewalker, Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Songs of the Damned, Secret Salvage, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Use the B mana to cast your rituals, making 11 black mana. Then you have enough mana to cast Edgewalker, Secret Salvage, and activate Nykthos. Then of course tutor up Gary and Exsanguinate to win.

But being able to win the same turn you get 6 Apostles seems good.

As soon as I saw Torgaar spoiled, I thought of you haha. Glad to see you didn't disappoint!
Some thoughts, in order of what I think may work best:
Temporal Extortion Would be great to torment your opponents with in this deck.
Hatred and Unspeakable Symbol Would be a great way to give a Souldrinker boost to any creature (not even your own)
Bond of Agony Is another great way to leverage Torgaar to heal yourself
Chainer, Dementia Master Could be another way to get out creatures to sac
Dash Hopes Is a fun control card in a deck like this
Songs of the Damned Could be awesome later in the game
Control-ish: Slaughter, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Season of the Witch, Yahenni's Expertise (great with your CMC), Ultimate Price (may be better than some others in there now)
Recursion-ish: Strands of Night, Grave Betrayal, Haunted Fengraf
Ramp-ish: Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Underworld Connections, Bontu the Glorified
Life: Disciple of Griselbrand, Gonti's Machinations
Defense: Eldrazi Monument, Will-o'-the-Wisp, Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Sorry if any of these are redundant. Great deck, as always!

Yes, Infect is a real pain!

I could just learn to live with milling sometime Songs of the Damned. There is 4 in the deck, so it should not be that much of a problem. Milling away Gnaw to the Bone is not a problem, as it can be cast again from the graveyard for good value.

I need to try Commune with the Gods to see if this speed up the gameplan. I'll keep you informed!

Oyah I like the idea, I would have to do some tuning though, it feels too durdly for me and I'd rather be more combo or midrnge. 50 life does sound nice though (I really like infect, I beat a white weenies deck that got themselves to 50 life lol), It would be a good defense against most of the value / aggro stratgeies, only really losing to some combos or random rogue infect. I guess I just feel like the decks to be doing something a little faster. What about adding something that could grab instant / sorcery from the graveyard? than you could get Songs of the Damned back if it's milled off Commune with the Gods or you could just cast songs twice.

Hello! The problem for me with Commune with the Gods and other cards that put cards in the graveyard is that I can't deal with milling away combo pieces. That is why I prefer cycling through the deck with cycle.

I feel Gnaw to the Bone is a must in this deck. Often, I can get myself to 50+ lifes. That way, the game is out of reach of many deck (burn notably). And, the life gain is essential if I want to survive my own Pestilence and Crypt Rats.

Yes, often I play a minor Songs of the Damned early in the game to put some blocker up if needed, to gain more life, to cycle faster, etc. You should try this deck online. I assure you that there are so many interesting plays to discover with it!

Thank you for your comment!

I like it. maxxing out the lowest cost cycling cards is essential, Street Wraith is perfect.
I'm almost not sure if the deck needs green the way you have it now the greens is a big cycler, and a really really good lifegain spell, but Gnaw to the Bone might not be worth green? It seems like a bigger spell like something with cmc 5-7 with a really dominating effect might be the way to go.
When I goldfished the deck I quickly got 3 creatures into the graveyard and had 2 Songs of the Damned in hand and a Gnaw to the Bone. Gaining 12 life or more over 2 turns could indeed be what keeps you alive (actually I play infect), but maybe just using Songs of the Damned like a Dark Ritual in situations where your not ready to go super big to ramp up to 5-7 might be better? Than we could play something like idk Dinrova Horror or Mulldrifter. Also if we do play green what about something like Commune with the Gods to put more creatures in the yard while finding Crypt Rats?

Daedalus19876 on Athreos owns Shadowborn Apostles

...this seems odd. You are running Shadowborn Apostles but only 6 demons (most of which are not even your best options for demons?). I'd suggest at the very least Razaketh, the Foulblooded, who can tutor for many different infinite combos or your win-cons. You could remove a few Apostles to add a Songs of the Damned and a Fanatic of Mogis. This would let you tutor for Razaketh, grab the SotD, add a bunch of mana, tutor for Thrumming Stone and Cathars' Crusade and Fanatic of Mogis and win off of massive damage out of nowhere. Win out of the blue for 6 life and 1 black mana? Seems good.

Also, Toxic Deluge is nearly always far better than Damnation.
