Sorceress Queen Discussion

hoardofnotions on Vhati Budget EDH

I really like this deck, looks very tuned! Do you run out of cards a lot? Maybe some recursion could be good like Phyrexian Reclamation or Oversold Cemetery? Also Wickerbough Elder could be clever with all the -1/-1 effects running around. Does that deck struggle without the commander on the field doing his thing? Maybe run a Sorceress Queen as a back up? if you're running enough elfs Wirewood Symbiote could be another untap effect.

Hopefully some of the suggestions are helpful, if you have the time could you check out my budget Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest build? I think I need another pair of eyes on it to make sure I didn't miss anything. Thanks!

Ok, I've made some changes with what I had on hand. Here's what I've done so far:

In: Charcoal Diamond, Dauthi Embrace, Sol Ring, Hell's Caretaker, Ascendant Evincar, Distended Mindbender, Abundant Maw, Artisan of Kozilek, and Thornbite Staff.

Out: Soratami Cloud Chariot, Western Paladin, Eastern Paladin, Distorting Lens, Delraich, Wall of Shadows, Infernal Spawn of Evil, Sorceress Queen, and Commander Greven il-Vec.

Now, as I acquire some of the other cards, I'll need to decide what stays and what goes. What should I switch out for Buried Alive at this point? I do have a Jet Medallion, but do I really need it? Hopefully I'll get some play testing done with it this weekend and see how it goes.

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is one if my favourite cards in the deck, actually. Ashenmoor Liege use to be in the list for the longest time until I realised that it didn't do enough for this deck really other than be royalty, a double anthem would be good if this deck was less... full of mono stuff and more of a beat down. Sorceress Queen is very interesting, I love that she can't become a tapped 0/2, because that would make untapping so OP. She is also the self proclaimed Queen which is just so fucking awesome, if only she was repainted to be more like Sudden Spoiling or if they were permanently 0/2, EOT just seems a little too fringe, maybe if Voltron decks take over my meta though.

Thanks for the suggestions! This deck is my baby and I may not know what's best for it (30 lands with 2 accelerants is bad even in partials) but this is EDH where sometimes another 5 drop is about the same as running a swamp, right?

@Simon, oh geez, I can't believe I didn't read that paragraph. Sorry. How about Sorceress Queen, Barter in Blood? King Macar, the Gold-Cursed could be unusual. Bloodline Keeper  Flip is pretty fun too.Ashenmoor Liege could fit.

Like you I also run a demon deck and find that it's much more successful with either sacrifice or control aspects (i opted for the latter). I also trialled Skirsdag High Priest but being a control build I didn't want to tap the small numbers of blockers I had to get 1 demon. Thus, I don't believe him to be that great. If I was you i'd swap him out for a better blocker or threat remover such as Typhoid Rats, Royal Assassin or Sorceress Queen to slow the game right down until you can hard cast your big boys. Then add some removal or disruption to aid this. And finally I feel Crypt Ghast is to expensive for the small ramp it provides and I tend to use Dark Ritual instead. If often allows me to get Lord of the Void out early and then it's game over!

Big Game Hunter -- an obvious include, obviously included here

Citanul Flute -- a bad, win more card

Corrosive Mentor -- yeah sure, could find a place in some decks, makes blocking more valuable. Synergy (undesired here) with Crypt Rats.

Demon of Death's Gate -- also nothing to celebrate, and useless without the alternative cost -- and we have Westvale Abbey  Flip now

Whispersilk Cloak -- sure, for a voltron version, this works well

Hex Parasite -- included in my deck, it's a great card, especially when you can find your Glacial Chasm or when you have over-extended with Smokestack

Lightning Coils -- a fun card, that get's blown up

Mesmeric Fiend -- a great card that I run

Spawning Pool -- sucks, run Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus, but not this

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled -- it's just a big body, and doesn't even prevent opponents from tutoring

Endless Whispers -- doesn't work, hoses Shirei

No Rest for the Wicked -- I guess, but why not run Phyrexian Reclamation instead

Grave Betrayal -- mediocre

Phyrexian Plaguelord -- a fun card for shirei, but there are cheaper and more useful creature killers. Mostly just too expensive to get out. If you have snowballed to the point of recurring 4 - 5 creatures, then you have won.

Shadows of the Past -- sure yeah, but better/more conventional options... Grim Haruspex family of cards, Viscera Seer is downright better most of the time.

Tragic Slip -- mhm, and Malicious Affliction too

Sorceress Queen -- yeah, moderately useful ability, but the moment you dive into "fun shenanigans" is the moment you lose the game

Hello! I just recently started putting together a Shirei deck, and you seem to have the most thought-out version that I've been able to find on tappedout thus far. As such, I'm curious what you think of some of these cards:

Big Game Hunter: Recur to kill big butts/commanders left and right.

Citanul Flute: In such a toolbox deck, this gets you what you want when you need it.

Corrosive Mentor: Makes your chump blockers that much more annoying.

Demon of Death's Gate: You're still paying 6 life, but a 9/9 flying trampler isn't really something to scoff at.

Whispersilk Cloak: Another protection option for Shirei.

Hex Parasite: Good for getting rid of annoying planeswalkers and slowing down everything else that uses counters. Also makes a good emergency chump blocker.

Lightning Coils: With all of your creatures dying, this could maybe turn into an alternate wincon.

Mesmeric Fiend: With stack shenanigans, you could potentially permanently exile a nonland card of your choice from an opponent's hand once per turn.

Spawning Pool: Turns into a Shirei-able creature until end of turn if needed.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled: Kinda like Scavenger Drake, but with trample and punishes opponents for decksearching.

Endless Whispers: Because you control both Shirei and Whispers' abilities, you get to chose in what order they occur. As such, you can revive your creatures normally while still stealing your opponent's creatures.

No Rest for the Wicked: A safety net in case someone kills Shirei after you've sacrificed a few creatures.

Grave Betrayal: Kinda like the above, but works even without Shirei out.

Phyrexian Plaguelord: Sac outlet that pokes creatures and gets around indestructibility.

Shadows of the Past: Scrying 1 over and over and over and over...

Tragic Slip: Spot removal that gets around indestructibility.

Sorceress Queen: Tap to allow Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker to save almost any other creature.

Sorry that this is such a wall of text, but I'd really appreciate your input. +1ed, would +2 if I could.
