Thrull Parasite Discussion

AEther Snap, Vampire Hexmage, Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite work nicely against walkers if you are running black.

Thrull Parasite or Hex Parasite. They help if your opponents are running troublesome fringe cards like Aurification and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer.

First off, the deck is not standard legal, so I would click edit and then change the deck format from Standard to Modern. I would also look up Orzhov cards with extort, as they are a perfect control/lifegain deck that can be run on a budjet, with cards like Thrull Parasite or Tithe Drinker.

Of course I will berryjon! Thank you for the comment!

A Dark Ritual + is very welcome in the deck!

Smothering Abomination draws me a card for each sac, allowing me to play nonlands.

Phyrexian Reclamation abuses it when something like Blood Artist or a soul sister is on the field.

I can always use it for extort triggers off of creatures like Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight.

Or straight dump it into a Debt to the Deathless effect or Return to the Ranks.

Mana burn may be dead, but that doesn't mean that you should waste mana!

Greed is a good mana sink/card draw engine, especially with all of the life you'll be accruing.

You already have Rogue's Passage so why not add Hatred? Surprise commander damage win.

Thrull Parasite is a great utility creature. Comes down early, extort is on theme, and can control PWs, etc. who your creatures might not be able to reach.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is the best common you could put in a deck of this theme!

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.

The best thrulls are WB, such as Mourning Thrull, Kingpin's Pet and Treasury Thrull (which kinda sucks, anyway), but then you wouldn't be able to keep Endrek as your Commander if you went .

Also, don't forget to check out cards like Breeding Pit, Ebon Praetor, Orzhov Keyrune, Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Soul Exchange (awesome card), Thrull Retainer & Tourach's Gate.

I love thrulls, btw. =)

Thrull Parasite could help gain you some life, and Basilica Screecher is almost as good as Storm Crow

Great start! How're you finding Damnation in the mainboard? Thing in the Ice  Flip's boardwipe effect when it flips might be enough to not need Damnation unless you are facing a very creature heavy deck. Perhaps move it to the sideboard and bring it in if needed? And with 3x Cryptic Command, damnation might not be needed at all.

I've toyed with idea of using Thrull Parasite in my Titi deck, but haven't actually tried it out. It doesn't seem to fit in Esper, but maybe you can use its potential in this Dimir deck as you aren't holding extra spots for Lingering Souls. It could get Titi flipped early so you can start threatening the board instead of being on the defensive for more turns.
