Temporal Extortion Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Oloro, Ageless Potato

Crypt Ghast, in my opinion, is not really useful in this deck, unless there's also Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Exsanguinate is another nice lifedrain card.

Paradox Haze is another card that interacts well with Oloro.

Also, have you considered Pontiff of Blight, along with Divinity of Pride, Serra Ascendant, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, and Test of Endurance?

Koskun Falls is another pillowfort enchantment you can run.

Another life doubler is Boon Reflection.

I also personally do not really like Sublime Exhalation, but since my playgroup tends to play Avacyn, Angel of Hope, you can keep it if you want. I was going to suggest sweepers like Merciless Eviction or Cyclonic Rift.

Vindicate is another nice removal spell, so are Path to Exile and Ashes to Ashes.

A meh spell you can run is Temporal Extortion, although it may not be too great, since giving your opponent choices isn't always too great. You also can try out Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw.

Sorin, Grim Nemesis also interacts well with lifegain decks.

After some play testing, I removed Aetherflux Reservoir & Gutless Ghoul because they felt slightly off theme, and too much of a closed combo. In their place I added Temporal Extortion, Slaughter Pact. As well as putting Spawning Pit back in for more free sac outlets, as well as instant speed blockers, and Thief of Blood makes its way to back into the main board as an alternate win condition.

Oh yea, I musta been tired when I made that comment, this helm, that helm...I'd only play Temporal Extortion if you like the flavor. If your plan is to win via commander damage there's no upside to someone paying life. Early game it's always good because it cost someone 20ish life to counter, and if they don't you get extra set up. Late game no one will likely give you another attack.

Burgdawg: I'll pass on the discard, I think - Thoughtseize could be good, but it doesn't synergize well with the rest of the deck.

I'm not running Helm of Obedience, I'm running Helm of Possession ;)

I have a copy of Temporal Extortion right here, I'm just not sure if it fits here. Thoughts? If you think it's worth including, what would you cut?

Thanks for the comment and +1! :)

Love the deck idea. Have you considered Temporal Extortion ? Extra time to set up or massive damage to a player

Looks like good fun, +1.

A Temporal Extortion would fit in nicely.

Greed is quite powerful, especially when your life total is going to the moon.

@Winterblast you are spot on with everything you said. But I want to avoid or in the mana cost so I don't run into the problem of not being able to cast spells do to color screwed. But if I do a serious mana ramp and mana fix upgrade then maybe then these cards will go in. I especially like sorin cause it's like the tree and like you said putting people at a very low life makes them not want to cast big spells when kaervek is out. I also really like Heartless Hidetsugu and Temporal Extortion they are great suggestions. I'm gonna give every card an individual close look and think of a card that would better hold its place
