Fun looking deck! Have you thought about adding some mass recursion? Some of my favorites are Twilight's Call and Living Death. They might be able to put in some work with this build!

P.S. Love your username :)

Hi GoblinElectromancer!

I do have a Living Death in the main board, but redundancy is never a bad thing to have. I think I like a lot Twilight's Call, specially in the late game when you can cast it at instant speed. Thanks a lot for the suggestion, and commenting in general! :D

Maybe play Twilight's Call to get back everything that you cycled.

Skeletal Scrying, Dregs of Sorrow, Damnable Pact, Necrologia are all viable options as long as your life gain is working well.

Patriarch's Bidding,Balthor the Defiled, Finale of Eternity, No Rest for the Wicked, Empty the Catacombs, Twilight's Call can all kinda undo certain board wipes.

White has some counter spells too like Rebuff the Wicked, Mana Tithe, Dawn Charm, Lapse of Certainty, Illumination that could help against removal sometimes.

Great deck bro, I would love to play with it <3

I run a deck that plays Ayara, First of Locthwain as commander, and I love Living Death because it returns every creature, so I added also Twilight's Call. It's awesome!

Fuzzlewuzzle thanks for the responses!

In looking back through your changes, Warstorm Surge eventually came back into the build. Did you feel like you needed it in order to get a faster win-con or more spot removal? At a 6 CMC that's a turn you wouldn't get to play any dragons.

What's kept Grave Upheaval in this build? High CMC, single target feels counter to a lot of what you've talked about wanting to do in the primer. Have you had instances where the haste was needed? For that total 6 CMC you could cast Patriarch's Bidding or Twilight's Call to be more impactful. Along that line, was Hammer of Purphoros ever a consideration?

Have you ever thought about Olivia, Mobilized for War as a tech in here?

  • 3 CMC means it hits the board reasonably quickly
  • Haste enabler when your dragons come into play, if they don't already have it
  • Can help fill the yard with dragons in hand if you don't have a discard outlet
  • Assuming you could resolve its ability before Surge and Tempest, it upticks the damage that either enchantment would do

I assume Wurmcoil and Everlasting Torment are local meta counters, but I might look to swap in for one of those.

Bazzul on One card combo Demonlord Belzenlok

Lord0fHam Regarding your 1st question, there are two more combo finishers besides Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion . They are listed in the Maybeboard ( Repay in Kind + Lich or Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + Soul Spike ). Although these combos are not graveyard based per se, they are very mana intensive and Skirge Familiar is pretty much mandatory to execute them. The Main combo line requires Skirge Familiar to be revived with Dread Return so it's hard to avoid being graveyard dependent. I think Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion is the most resilient of the combos since multiple cards can execute the combo in case you get countered ( Ever After , Living Death , or even Twilight's Call ).

Regarding you second question the deck doesn't have a good way to protect itself from being interrupted (due to being mono black and having the 4cmc+ condition). That being said, there are two scenarios

-Interruption before Belz's ETB: simply ramp until 8 and try again...

-Interruption after Belz's ETB: Discarding Dread provides you multiple chances to revive the duo in the following turns. Basically you can attempt a win one per turn for the following 2 turns (sometimes even more because Ever After goes to the top of your library if it resolves..) More details are given at the end of the "combo" section of the primer.

Finally, there is Geode Golem , which allows you to pay for Skirge Familiar directly, if interrupted, simply do the main combo line.
