Tainted Peak Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, great budget deck.
I suggest more draw: Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Painful Truths and Read the Bones. Consider cutting some of the less good high casting cost board wipes: Extinguish All Hope, In Garruk's Wake and Hex. You don't really need 6x high casting cost board wipes. Another option is to cut some of the less good six drop Zombies: Geralf's Mindcrusher and Maalfeld Twins.
Victimize is a great reanimation spell. Consider cutting Unhallowed Pact for it?
Slave of Bolas is a nice gain control of a creature/kill spell. Letting you attack one of your opponents with one of their own creatures and then that creature dies end of turn. Consider cutting Rescue from the Underworld for it?
You're playing a lot of Basic lands making Sunken Hollow and Smoldering Marsh nice dual lands. Swamps are your primary Basic lands which is good with the Tainted lands: Tainted Peak and Tainted Isle. Exotic Orchard is a good budget rainbow land. Evolving Wilds is another Expanse. Crumbling Necropolis is the Grixis Tri-land. I recommend adding all these lands to help the manabase.
Good luck with your deck.

Josh_Estrella Thanks for the response! :D Also thank you, this is my first EDH deck I've ever made, and everyone here is being incredibly helpful :) I actually just got some of my cards in the mail today. I added in my Viscera Seer, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Gifted Aetherborn, Vault of the Archangel, Isolated Chapel, Bishop of Rebirth, Stromkirk Noble, and my Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I still need all 4 tutors (which is going to murder my wallet) Necropotence, Shared Animosity, and a couple of others. I'll update my list tomorrow morning, it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I'll look into Toxic Deluge since I haven't gotten a Damnation yet. I was looking into Bloodghast, but I wasn't quite sure on it since I hadn't seen anyone mention it until now. Also, I already have a Necropolis Regent in there :) I had a Mephidross Vampire, but I opted for the Necropolis Regent instead. I do see what you are saying about the Butcher of Malakir though, 7 cmc for a 5/4 even though he does fly... I think something better can go there. Some stuff I have on hand right now is Vampire Cutthroat, Pulse Tracker, Tithe Drinker (not really a fan), Voldaren Pariah Flip, and Olivia Voldaren just to name a few off the top of my head. I was thinking maybe one of the 1 drops? (kinda leaning towards Vampire Cutthroat maybe) I'm all ears for suggestions though. Anyway, I'm kinda worried that my list a little bit light on the vampires compared to what I hear you guys say you have. I think Frank_Glascock said he has 33 creatures 30 being vampires if I remember right... Oh, lastly have you guys considered a Vanquisher's Banner? I thought that might be an ok card draw tool... You guys are the experts though

As with most EDH, the most effective way to bolster a deck is to speed up it's mana base. This begins with removing any lands that enter tapped.
- Dual Lands : Badlands, Plateau, Scrubland are obvious, but add major cost to the deck.
- Shock Lands : Blood Crypt. Godless Shrine
- Shadow Land : Foreboding Ruins
- Battle Land : Smoldering Marsh
- Unconventional Duals : Tainted Field, Tainted Peak
- Fetch Lands : Arid Mesa, Bloodstained Mire, Marsh Flats, Scalding Tarn, Flooded Strand, Verdant Catacombs, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills
- Fast Lands : Blackcleave Cliffs , Concealed Courtyard, Inspiring Vantage
I got into EDH just over a year ago and found the cost of mana base so offputting. My playgroup and LGS FNM allow people to use proxys in their deck(s) if they can show the original card in a binder/sleeve. This really helps you get over the mental hurdle of buying expensive lands, since you know that you can use them in multiple decks at the same time.

I'm sorry to hear about that man! I will offer you 20 for the Anguished Unmaking, Atarka, World Render, Boros Charm, 2x Command Tower, Lightning Greaves, Phyrexian Arena, Swords to Plowshares, and Tainted Peak. Let me know if we can work that out!

Sword of Kaldra is a way to ping and exile with your commander
Is Defiant Bloodlord good enough? Maybe cut it for curve reasons
Braid of Fire is VIP with olivia. just use her ping ability in your upkeep for no downside! Yeah no mana burn!!!
Metallic Mimic seems good
Worn Powerstone could be good, power out your expensive threats
Pawn of Ulamog gives you a little extra value, might be better than some common vampire
another possible cut could be Hall of Triumph, your other anthemn effects are stronger
