Tariel, Reckoner of Souls Discussion

Yesterday on Looking for cards with Buried ...

1 week ago

Thanks for the feedback, folks. I was hoping I was doing something wrong in the Gatherer search and that cards like Life's Finale were an older form of deck removal before 'removed from the game' became a thing, but no such luck.

I kinda wanted to avoid things like milling because I wanted a better way to deal with what's in an opponent's graveyard and not just pulling little creatures at random with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls.

It looks like I'm going to have to go down the route of milling and then exiling unwanted cards from graveyards. Unfortunately the only repeatable eldrazi processing effects aren't in Tariel's colours, but still the targeted exiling and then processing is hilarious and I think I might have to build a deck around that at some point.

Thanks again!

Something of note Grinning Totem, Sadistic Sacrament, and Jester's Cap exile from their library which does not give Tariel, Reckoner of Souls any targets. These got me thinking though and I went and looked at the eldrazi processors. This idea is really janky but you are getting your opponents best creatures if you do this.

Blight Herder, Mind Raker, Ruin Processor, Ulamog's Despoiler, and Wasteland Strangler all work for this plan. I want to emphasize that this is taking jank level to over 9000 but it would allow Grinning Totem, Sadistic Sacrament, and Jester's Cap to give Tariel, Reckoner of Souls some targets.

Hey there. I'm putting together a... currently somewhat janky Tariel, Reckoner of Souls deck with which I want to be able to control opponents' graveyards. I have plenty of effects that exile specific cards from graveyards to get rid of little creatures I don't want, but I'm also looking for cards that function similar to Buried Alive, but for an opponent. So far I'm aware of Life's Finale and Grinning Totem but haven't found anything else yet.

I'd rather not go for general milling. I think I might have to resort to targeted discard effects like Thoughtseize, but in multiplayer it's very difficult to get much bang for your buck games with those.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like Deathrite Shaman needs to go since it's G and your Commander is not. That will help the mana just a bit.

Otherwise, you need to shed R and W sources for more B sources. The easiest way would be to swap out RW lands for Swamps (e.g. Plateau, Rugged Prairie, and Sacred Foundry). After that, try to trim colorless sources that come in tapped or offer limited value (e.g. Nykthos and City of Brass because you run 3 colors, not 1 or 5) and add more Swamps.

Then, given all of your Stax effects, you might not need all the lands that destroy other lands, especially since you'll be taxing yourself with cards like Desolation, too. Tec Edge might be the one to drop there since it's more conditional than Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, or Wasteland.

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls might be a more flavorful commander given your Stax theme. You might also prefer partnering Akiri, Line-Slinger & Vial Smasher the Fierce given the number of artifacts you play and Vial Smasher's value.

I hope some of these suggestions help :)

Happy brewing!
