Whenever another creature you control dies, it deals damage equal to its power to target player.

Stalking Vengeance Discussion
1 day ago
I would recommend more power-5 or greater cards. You seem to be aiming to use Mayael a lot but I don't think you have enough targets to reliably hit with her. Mayael was also my first EDH deck and I've been updating my deck ever since. I've found that Mayael tends to win by putting unrelenting pressure on your opponents by building a boardstate they just can't match.
I would really try to fit these creatures in:- Spearbreaker Behemoth It's great at defending your team.- Stalking Vengeance This might make people think twice about killing your creatures if they know they'll get smacked in the face if they do.- Sigarda, Host of Herons My local meta has a decent number of sacrifice effects. This stops those cold.- Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Gisela is just a great finisher. She has to be dealt with or she will end the game quickly.
Take a look at my deck Mayael the Anima EDH for more ideas.

Ran a deck very similar to this one when I had a Marchesa deck. Nice build! I suggest the criminally underrated Stalking Vengeance. He won me a few games thanks to my sac'ing shenanigans.

Welcome everyone! You are all a testament to the amazing community we have her on TappedOut. I called for help, you all answered. My cup overfloweth.
MegaMatt13 - Thanks for the comment! Yeah I think I will be putting more plains in. That will also help if I decide I want Emeria Shepherd as well. Nim Deathmantle is great but the mana ramp required just seems to expensive to for me atm, so I'm straying away from it for now. Molten Primordial may be a good finisher and yeah, Sun Titan is going in. I'm at least putting Gratuitous Violence in soon, not sure I like the double edged sword of the others. I stay away from them because of my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. And I like the tucking/exiling board wipes because of my friend's sliver deck. Thanks again!
jwe94 - Double dipping commenting ;) Thanks! I like Flayer of the Hatebound. The rest don't really seem worth it. Stalking Vengeance used to be in here but I found it's too slow/costs too much. Thanks again!
Oloro_Magic - Thanks for stopping by! Bonehoard looks neat and Moltensteel Dragon could be great as I'll usually have a lot of life. I'll try em out! the rest are either too expensive(looking at you, Chandra), or just don't seem like the best fit. Appreciate you commenting!
zandl - I like all those lands, I'll add them in eventually. Sun Titan is going in. Universal damage doublers are too risky with my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. Gratuitous Violence will find a place though. Thanks a lot!
TheHamster - Hi again! Just figured you'd like to see the progress! You were my first commenter hahaha! I'm pretty happy with what it's become. Thanks!
landofMordor - Thanks for the comment friend! I have Insult / Injury and will be adding Gratuitous Violence. The others are too risky. Heartless Hidetsugu may work... I'll think about him. I like the Ball Lightning cards too much. It's the main gimmick of the deck so I won't be giving them up haha! Checked out you deck; very nice! Thanks again for stopping by!
Daedalus19876 - Thanks for all the advice! I've actually already seen and upvoted your Judgement Day haha! Gratuitous Violence is going in. Felidar Sovereign will be leaving me soon so I won't add ToE for the same reason he's leaving. Crumbling Colossus will be cut soon-Iroas, God of Victory you think? I've kept Kor Cartographer in the sideboard for that very reason. He'll probably find his way back in. Yes I've been needing more removal and those are all good options. Enlightened Tutor may find a place even with Sunforger possibly being cut. I also think you're right about the 2 cost mana rocks... good advice. All those card draw options are amazing but very expensive. Will keep them in mind but for now I'll find cheaper alternatives. Thank you a thousand times my friend!
clayperce - Appreciate it man! I've never had an issue with Temple of the False God. Works fine for me. Taurean Mauler doesn't work because of my friend's Sliver Overlord, but Sunscorch Regent is nice. Also adds life gain! Other people's treason effects aren't an issue. Never have enough pre-combat mana for Rogue's Passage. I'll consider Chandra. Thanks a lot!
Again, just want to thank you all for the kind words and advice! I've got a lot to think about!

This looks really fun; big +1 from me!
With all the usual caveats (I have no idea what your meta is like, I've never actualy played your deck so I'm just theorycrafting here, etc), here are a few thoughts:
- I know lots of people swear by it, but I've never been a big fan of Temple of the False God. It's kind of underwhelming early (IMO) and I never really miss it late.
- I'm not sure the deck wants another 7-drop at all, but Stalking Vengeance in a sac' heavy deck can be pretty bonkers.
- In EDH, I always make it a point to look at any spells with "Whenever an opponent casts a spell ...". For this deck, Taurean Mauler and Sunscorch Regent may be worth looking at.
- It's totally a meta call, but if (other people's) Treason effects are an issue in your meta, you may want Homeward Path. I'm a big fan of Rogue's Passage as well, if your manabase can support it.
- Chandra, Flamecaller?

I would get rid of Stalking Vengeance, Genesis Wave, Amulet of Vigor, Purphoros, God of the Forge (everybody gets ticked off if you use him so you're making yourself a target ) and add elementals like Vengevine (which synergies with like 10 things in this deck including the commander), Maze's End, Zendikar's Roil, and Splendid Reclamation

A few more suggestions/questions. What do you think of Flayer of the Hatebound? True it doesn't shine without lots of recursion but the whole fling, trigger, burn and fling again is cute. Also Deathrender and Scythe of the Wretched seem like good equipment for Brion and friends. Jar of Eyeballs could be a decent way to do a little digging, thoughts? Finally they've got quite the mana costs but Stalking Vengeance and Vicious Shadows are pretty intriguing.

I would lend a lot more credence to VexenX's opinion than mine. He has played this deck several hundred times more than me (at least). He has five sac outlets which are vital to this deck. I would not have thought of Blasphemous Acts. He also prioritize recurring lands.
I have found his creature selection has mimicked my own. Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Stalking Vengeance were just ok and needed to be cut. You and he both got me to play Shaman of the Forgotten Way. I was hesitant to add a creature which did not utilize landfall. Speaking of which, I assume you do not own a Lotus Cobra. It was made for this deck.
I have put forth three changes to his deck. Switching Sylvan Scrying for Rampant Growth is 100% the right call. I am confident that Crop Rotation for Ulvenwald Hydra is correct. The only real reason to play the card is the land fetch and I think six mana is on the steep side. I may put it back into the deck to have a fifth way to tutor up lands.
Steely Resolve for Cream of the Crop was another easy call. This deck can be crippled by spot removal. Priority number one is keeping Omnath on the board. Cream of the Crop does not draw you the card so unless you have another means you are waiting a turn.
I guess in summary my reason for not posting a deck would be that it would not be my creation. You and VexenX continue to maintain your threads. I really have enjoyed discussing cards with you two. I think you have an understanding of what constitutes a good card for this deck. You are open to suggestions and prioritize knowledge over proving you are right.
