Talisman of Dominance Discussion

DoWell on Thraximundar's Decree

I would take out 3 lands and add the talismans. Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Indulgence , and Talisman of Dominance

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is an excellent card for Thrax. Deathtouch blocker, sacrifice engine for a counter, and a tutor all in one!

Beseech the Queen is too slow. Why not add Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor

You have too many lands that etb tapped. You don't want any lands that etb tapped, it's just too slow.

Ditch them for pain lands, filters, fetches, and shocks. Fiery Islet , Underground River , Cascade Bluffs , Sunken Ruins , etc.

Solid deck! Making it faster will make it more consistent. And hateful. ;)

TCG-Player on Kess Budget (please help)

You asked for help, so here I am:

Paradox Engine is banned.

Cut Manalith and Chromatic Lantern . They are fine cards but there are more efficient ramp options at only 2 mana:
Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel and Wayfarer's Bauble .

Some of your sorceries seem a bit clunky, like Cruel Ultimatum or Life's Finale .
Evacuation and Devastation Tide are great boardwipes, Crux of Fate is a solid budget option and Toxic Deluge is amazing but a bit pricy.

Wurmcoil Engine , Noxious Gearhulk , Neheb, the Eternal and Massacre Wurm are all quite highly costed and don't synergize well with the rest of the deck.
If you want to be mean, you could replace them with extra turn spells: Time Warp , Part the Waterveil and Karn's Temporal Sundering are reasonably priced, both in money and mana.

I personally would throw out all Guild Gates and raplace them with literally anything that does not enter tapped. A good budget replacement would be the pain lands: Underground River , Shivan Reef , Sulfurous Springs .

Lastly, cheap and efficient removal pieces I would consider are: Doomblade, Go for the Throat , Reality Shift , Rapid Hybridization and Pongify .

Ok, I finally have a day off.

Fellwar Stone and Talismans (i.e. Talisman of Dominance ) over Signets. Bloom Tender is the best mana dork you're missing here.

Diabolic Intent for another tutor.

Grateful Apparition over Thrummingbird. Proliferates off hitting walkers too.

Teferi's Protection and Heroic Intervention for wrath/key piece protection.

Talisman of Creativity

Talisman of Indulgence

Talisman of Dominance

Pain lands such as Fiery Islet too

Are also pretty good ones if you're a masochist like me. You're playing black though, so why wouldn't you be? Hehe. Consistent color profile is important in these multicolored libraries.

My grixis under Thraximundar is undergoing some major changes right now. Check it out for more ideas on ramp and lands.

Hey, your deck looks good especially if it's really your first Commander deck. You do know what you're doing; have more confidence. Everything is fine except the manabase and you know this :)

Lands such as Backwater, Scoured, Tranquil and the two Temples can be upgraded with better lands. Lands upgrades to consider:

These are expensive price land upgrades. Some less expensive land upgrades are:

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Ajani's Pridemate

  • Dromar's Charm
  • Clever Impersonator

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.

You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.

Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.

Milkspy on Marchesa's Night on the Town

1 month ago

As an easy and really cheap upgrade I'd replace all the lockets with the talismans such as: Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence . You can drop these talisman's (talismen) before you drop down your commander which can come in huge, also these allow you to lower your life total, thus making Marchesa, the Black Rose 's dethrone ability easier to trigger.

Currently I'm experimating with a budget Marchesa, the Black Rose - Theft deck aswell.
