hungry000 on Modern Mono Black Aristocrats Burn And Lifegain

1 day ago

Nether Traitor and the drain effects are a neat combo, but you don't actually have any repeatable sac outlets in your deck, which is what you need to make that combo work. Viscera Seer does that job nicely, and you can also play Nantuko Husk as a backup sac outlet. I'd replace all the Vampire Cutthroats and a couple Thrull Parasite or a Grave Pact and a Dark Prophecy with them. They'll add a lot more explosiveness to your deck for sure.

Btw, your deck fits in an archetype called Aristocrats. It's a hub you can add, and it would sum your deck up a lot more nicely than Aggro/Burn/Combo/Control (not that it really matters) ;)

Kogarashi on lose life to win

5 days ago

You're off to a decent start, I'd say. Your curve looks good, though you're mana base is a bit weak at the moment (you should be running about 40 land for consistency). Some commentary as I took notes:

Heliod, God of the Sun doesn't seem to fit with the overall theme of the deck. You'd be better off with a card that will give you lifelink creatures or something, to help offset the life-loss from your various effects. Whip of Erebos would be my pick for this deck.

Blood Tribute is going to want more vampires, which are kind of slim in your deck at the moment.

Brainspoil is...poor removal. I would remove it. Killing Wave, on the other hand, is a good choice for sweep, and Remorseless Punishment and Temporal Extortion are nice. I like Near-Death Experience as an alternate win-con, but Path of Bravery is going to hamper that, especially since you don't appear to have super-consistent lifegain.

You have...two? infect cards. I would remove them since infect is really an alternate win-con that you aren't geared toward. Diseased Vermin might make for an alternate rat if you must have a rat, especially if you can give it evasion somehow, and it works with lifelink. It's not a strong pick for the deck, though.

Knight-Captain of Eos wants more soldiers. There are quite a few vampire soldiers, and some of them would work well in this deck. Vicious Conquistador is one that works with your theme.

Seekers' Squire doesn't really seem to fit any of your themes.

Wall of Shards short-circuits your life-drain by giving increasingly large amounts of life to opponents. You don't need it. I would also skip the Hyena Umbra and Hatred.

As for further suggestions, things with Extort are good. There's always the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combo, which can also use Vizkopa Guildmage in place of Sanguine Bond.

Other suggestions:

Ones that work somewhat with the life drain: Defiant Bloodlord, Retreat to Hagra, Thrull Parasite, Bontu's Monument, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Underworld Coinsmith (this would be a reason to keep Heliod, actually), Zulaport Cutthroat, and maybe Vizkopa Confessor

Others that pay life or give you life somehow: Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Chainer, Dementia Master, Cruel Sadist, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vona, Butcher of Magan, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose (for working with your creatures dying).

All of this, of course, is subject to what you're willing to buy, and you don't have to listen to anything I say. It's your deck, after all.

hex parasite and Vampire hexmage are probably the best ones on this list though

RazortoothMtg on Best Commander for Saga Tribal?

4 months ago

So since sagas were revealed, I've decided that I want to build an EDH deck based around them, and after Raff was spoiled I definitely need to do this.

The question is, what commander?

So we definitely want Raff Capashen in the deck, because Flash seems very powerful with these (not that I can't also have Vedalken Orrery, and we also definitely want Jhoira to draw off all the sagas, as well as a few other cards like Mesa Enchantress, Inexorable Tide, Starfield of Nyx, etc. Then in we have Eidolon of Blossoms, Herald of the Pantheon, Argothian Enchantress, and recursion effects to get back our sagas after III happens. Then in black we get things like Zur the Enchanter, Cabal Paladin, and some of the stronger Sagas like The Eldest Reborn, and also cards like Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite to move around counters.

tl;dr: There are Saga support cards, as well as Sagas, in all 5 colors. Is it best to go 5-color, or are payoffs in some colors too weak? Also, which commander in those colors might synergize with sagas, or should I go for a generic goodstuff commander in those colors?

Thanks!

Ohda on Another Haptra deck

Hey there !

I would suggest you some ramps spells like Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore ( my personnal favorite ), Farseek ( even if the fact that you don't include Bayou or Overgrown Tomb makes it less effective ), Kodama's Reach and Cultivate have the advantage of not being turn two drops so you can get your commander on the table and next turn start to ramp.

I really don't like the Tempt with Discovery and I usually am not tempted when anyone plays a card like it. It is way too expensive even if, in the right condition I get it, that cards goes bonkers and trim your deck. Also even if Harvest Season is a great card on paper, you want to ramp early, even if you didn't miss a drop you can only hope for a 3 lands spells on turn three. Considering you would need a Sol Ring in your hand, a basic of each color, Thrull Parasite, Sakura-Tribe Elder AND Noose Constrictor in your opening hand. That's a real struggle I think. You would rather have a 1-2 ramp spell most of the time.

I love the inclusion of Uncage the Menagerie but it only has 5 targets at X=3 ( if you didn't draw any yet ) and 5 at X=4, I think it would be interresting to work on that and change a bit your curve. I would prefer going for more 3CMC cards, as I think casting more cards is better than casting a big one each turn.

Some good 3 mana creatures that would fit your deck are :

Skullwinder : Better than Eternal Witness sometimes...

Banewhip Punisher : Good cheap removal that gets often overlooked.

Serrated Biskelion : Two snakes in a turn if Hapatra is on the battlefield.

Manglehorn : It can mess with a late Sol Ring or most of the ramp / filter artifacts and pretty cheap card !

Another great creature that I would love to include in my deck if the format was 101 cards is Tenacious Hunter pretty budget and a killer in 1v1.

Sorry for the long comment, hope this helps in case you were seaching for some new cards to look at for your deck that seems already fun to me :) Have a nice day !

Crypt Ghast, Pontiff of Blight, and Thrull Parasite all have extort, and seem good.

Dismal on Kambal - Drain everybody!

I would remove either Thrull Parasite or Treasury Thrull, as they have bad synergy with Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, and I'd replace them with a copy of Oketra's Monument, as it creates more dudes to sacrifice.

22 lands seems a bit lite if you have 4's of Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I would add an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and another swamp. Thrull Parasite and Deathgreeter seem week. I would add some amount of Collective Brutality (all modes are relevant against burn).
