Undercity Informer Discussion

Rossa on Gonti Control V0.4

  1. Sadistic Sacrament: You can use it in two modes. It is a nice one at the beginning of the game with mode 1, but practically you can execute your opponent with mode 2.
  2. Nightmare Incursion: Similar like the above one, but a little bit weaker.
  3. Dread Summons: Card removal from opponent's deck plus a little token factory. Additionally it is a good basis for your reanimating cards.
  4. Undercity Informer: Light filler for removing cards from enemies' decks.
  5. Cao Cao, Lord of Wei: For hand removal.
  6. Fiend of the Shadows: Similar ability than Gonti's, but exiles card from hand.
  7. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled:Good control card, prevents enemies for searching in decks.
  8. Dimir Machinations: You can define what your opponent will draw in the next three turns, or you can search your favorite card with 3 mana. (Murder, Arena, etc.)
  9. Painful Quandary: Part of the hand control.

Strionic Resonator Should be in here. Reason being is because you can copy ETB triggers, copy Alesha's trigger (pay 4 mana, reanimate two creatures).

Sac outlets are another way to get creatures to reanimate. Sac Master of Cruelties, reanimate it tapped and attacking. Same thing with Raving Dead.

I'm not sure what your meta is like, but having some sort of 'combo' is also a good way to close out the game. Reveillark and Karmic Guide with a sac outlet is a win. Hell, even just with Ashnod's Altar you have infinite colorless mana. Add in a card like Altar of Dementia and Mindcrank seems good.

If you go more so the reanimator style, you'll need ways to fill your graveyard and I feel the best way to do that is either tutor and put it in the grave ((Entomb, Buried Alive)), discard cards ((Olivia, Mobilized for War, Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice, Nahiri, the Harbinger, Key to the City))or milling yourself ((Balustrade Spy, Mesmeric Orb, Undercity Informer, Altar of Dementia. Some cards let you filter things easier and discarding cards to draw cards seems like a good way. If you can do it every turn it just gets better.

Again, going with the reanimator strategy, you'll need alot more reanimation spells. Going the self mill, you'll want cards with flashback like Unburial Rites or Increasing Ambition

I also don't see alot of life gain. Might be meta dependent, but having some way to gain life is good. Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Disciple of Bolas, Whip of Erebos are all good ways. (even Sorin, Solemn Visitor)

Playing creatures for 0/0 power and toughness is a good way to get in too. Pentavus is a great example. Even if it dies you can remove counters and leave a small army behind!

Ghost Quarter to activate Archive Trap. To activate Surgical Extraction

Your target? A fancy land they probably have 4 of.

Aim for the lands... why?

Because it'll increase the power of grinders like Mind Funeral Mind Grind and Undercity Informer and up until this very moment.. all that grief was for free!!

Oh yes.. they'll hunt for those lands.. but there will be huge gaps between them now.

It's not impossible. Yes, there are some high costing cards, but the point of this deck is to take control of creatures your opponent controls and then sacrificing them so that way your opponent no longer has an offense. With numerous amounts of very cheap spells such as Dreadbore, Undercity Informer, and Act of Treason, you bide yourself time to play the higher costing cards with ease.

Surgical Extraction, Extirpate, Extract, Lobotomy, Sadistic Sacrament, Pick the Brain and a few more cards I can't remember at the moment make it easy to get cards out of your opponents library without milling them. Which can be very helpful for you, because it prevents the problem of milling an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or something similar which sort of null and voids your game plan. Also since you are playing black you have access to Leyline of the Void as a mainboard option. Obviously leyline doesn't work with the first two cards I mentioned but oh well. Also Balustrade Spy, and Undercity Informer have the same effect of Mind Funeral on a body. You could also play one of the infinite mill effects like Leyline of the Void (although more commonly Rest in Peace) and Helm of Obedience, or Painter's Servant and Grind Stone. Both are pretty fun to play. Basically what I am saying is why not exile stuff if you can, and/or use some precision extraction with your mass mill. I am also not sure what you are doing with the Shelldock Isle since you don't have anything really in need of hiding away. I would switch to something else in that slot. I suppose it depends on how competitive you want to be, and how much you are willing to spend as to how to decide on what to change. Like playing Halimar Depths, Bojuka Bog, and Dimir Aqueduct is fun with the synergy and to fuel your Hedron Crab but not really fast enough to be very competitive, and playing Underground Sea, with Polluted Delta is fast enough and fuels the crab but is very expensive. You could also play Force of Will and Thoughtseize to protect your stuff, with a team of walkers like Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Liliana of the Veil, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor to lay down threat but that doesn't entirely seem like the way you wish to play. I have a few decks you could look at if you'd like to see what I did. your worst nightmare, tezzstone, and a deck that uses Shelldock Isle, today is doomsday. Hope something I said is worth while to you.

sonnet666 on Jarad, Extreme Sub $50 Budget EDH

Traverse the Ulvenwald was in your budget for a while, but has been slowly creeping up.

Behold the Beyond is a combo deck's wet dream of a tutor, and it's sitting at a dollar.

Corrupted Grafstone is a nice mana rock for graveyard decks that gives you a turn 3 Jarad.

Crawling Sensation and Vessel of Nascency can self mill.

Cryptolith Rite has been dropping, so it might end up in your price range if it's an effect you want.

Deathcap Cultivator is a mana dork that likes graveyards.

Drownyard Temple can ramp from your graveyard.

If Eldritch Evolution and Grim Flayer ever drop in price they'd probably be good here.

Splendid Reclamation is enormous ramp in graveyard decks, and the price could go either way.

In general though, I noticed you have very little in the way of self mill for a deck that's so graveyard based. Hermit Druid is only about $2 and is phenomenal, and even if that's too expensive there are some great, cheap self mill cards like Nyx Weaver, Satyr Wayfinder, Undercity Informer, and Splinterfright you could use. As well as some great cards that play well with them, like Dread Return and Morgue Theft.

Hope that helps.

This was definitely a deck when it was in Standard.

Sam Pardee wrote this article on Human Reanimator that's reminiscent of Oops! All Spells in Legacy.

Fiend Hunter + human sac outlet + Angel of Glory's Rise = infinite loop to do whatever nonsense you want. Burning-Tree Emissary/Wild Cantor for infinite mana? Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip for infinite life and 2/2s? Death Cultist for the win?

I think the main shell of the deck is going to be:

4x Unburial Rites
4x Angel of Glory's Rise
4x Fiend Hunter
4x Cartel Aristocrat
4x Faithless Looting
4x Tormenting Voice
4x Goblin Lore
4x Golgari Grave-Troll (for maximum self-mill)

Your win conditions are between:

Now that I think about it, I might have to build this deck myself...
