Underworld Connections Discussion

Jamminmagician on Venomous Fangs - Hapatra EDH (Help Wanted)

If you're worried about card draw in black and you aren't playing Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence you're missing out!
Other options Smothering Abomination, Syphon Mind, Underworld Connections

In green your options are tougher, but you could be playing Harmonize if you really wanted to, or Regal Force since you will have so many snakes with Hapatra, or Rishkar's Expertise Provided that you don't have too many huge creatures, or Shamanic Revelation, Tireless Tracker,

Tons of artifact options for card advantage, just to name a couple Mind's Eye, Hedron Archive, Carnage Altar, Staff of Nin, the last two pair well with your deck's theme of weakening creatures and making little dudes to profit from.

My first thought was Wall of Limbs, but I see it in the maybe-board.

Sunbond is maybe one to consider.
Also Ajani's Pridemate might be too good to leave out, in this deck.

Night Market Lookout is only as good as your ability to tap him. If he can't attack he's a bit shit. Soul Warden instead maybe?.

I would lose Orzhov Keyrune and instead go forBontu's Monument and Oketra's Monument. Thery're good for fixing mana and creating abusable effects.

Greed seems to good not to put in, maybe lose Retreat to Hagra (will there be that much landfall?) Underworld Connections is a cheaper, and worse, version if need be.

Trespasser's Curse seems like fun.

Miraculous Recovery just for EOT returning Felidar Sovereign for a quick and easy win.

If you need to cut costs to get stuff in Scholar of Athreos might be a cheap substitute for something.

Bond of Agony maybe?

Blood Tribute is you have enough Vamps.

Mortify is quite versatile.

Those are my thoughts.

Hey friend. You've got a great start here -- I love the strong synergies and powerful payoffs. First thing to do is find cards to cut: since you're running Vampire tribal, I'd first cut every creature that isn't a Vampire or a mechanical friend to Vampires. As cool as Akroma/Flamerush/Ammit/Combat Celebrant and the rest are, they simply aren't Vampires, and are therefore less powerful in a tribal deck than any other kind. Yes, you can get Olivia to make them Vampires, but why spend 2 mana activating her ability when you could just put in a Vampire? Other cards that are good, but not in an aggressive combo-y deck are Spellbook, Edifice of Authority, and Chandra and Liliana. I would also replace most or all of your kill spells and tutors, since cards like Victim of Night and Feast of Blood and Diabolic Tutor are way more effective than what you've currently got.

Cards that should replace those, in addition to Wizno's excellent suggestions, are: Ascendant Evincar, Rakish Heir, Olivia's Bloodsworn, Vampiric Fury, Stensia Banquet, and so forth. P Both Innistrad blocks and both Zendikar blocks (especially the first ZEN block) have tons of Vampires, so they're good starting places. Also, a couple off-the-wall suggestions are Ring of Xathrid (since so many Vampires have first strike), and Key to the City to encourage some Madness/card draw/unblockable.

As far as your mana production goes, I'm less concerned about that than I am with your card draw -- Underworld Connections and Vampiric Rites will help you out.

Hope that helps! Mention me if I can do anything else for you! Cheers

I'd argue that Abrupt Decay was part of an uncounterable cycle and it made sense at that standard to kill Underworld Connections and Pack Rat. That deck became extraordinarily powerful at the time so it makes sense to overload on removal. (also makes sense for the cycle. R/U counter, W/U wipe, R/B raid and exile, W/G a dude above curve, G/B kill something)

Fatal Push with the cmc 4 revolt trigger is a pretty clear answer to Thought-Knot Seer. (even more so that it's conditional, one of wotc's favorite things to do)

Claim / Fame can get back any number of good creatures right now. The Khenra brothers, Scrapheap, etc. There are PLENTY of targets.

I'm not saying that these cards weren't good immediately in modern (they are) but simply that cards are designed for standard and limited first and they rarely, if ever, print cards JUST for modern.

Pilgrim's Eye

Good land ramp

Mindless Automaton

Remove two counters and it's a power 1 or less creature that draws you a card!

Viscera Seer

Scry is almost carddraw!

Unhallowed Pact

Protection for your commander.

Westvale Abbey

Good land to add

Skirsdag High Priest

Makes daemons. Nice right?

Perilous Myr

Kill creatures!

Tattered Mummy

Makes people think twice

Abhorrent Overlord

you have a lot of black symbols

I think you might need more carddraw.I recommend 6-8 drawcards

Phyrexian Arena

one of the better draws

Underworld Connections

draws you a card every turn

Greed

multiple per turn if you're feeling it.

Bontu's Monument

Drain a lot of people so you can fuel your carddraw

Jet Medallion

Black

Charcoal Diamond

Mana rock.

Sol Ring

Auto include

Commander's Sphere

If you have too much mana, carddraw!

Ogre Slumlord

a really annoying card for your opponent.

Myr Sire

Free token every turn?

Wake the Dead

Bring creatures back. then kill them, them bring them back!

Dance of the Dead

bring big creatures back!

Altar's Reap

You like killing your own things right?

Staff of Nin

You can kill your own creatures and get carddraw

So besides your commander you have only 5 cards that have blue in them. I would go mono black if you are not utilizing that color more with card draw, counter spells, control.

Dread Slaver is good in limited but not edh, it won't stay around long for it to take a bunch of stuff and also people wont mind taking the 3 to keep their dorks. you can replace it with a better beater/ blocker i suggest Scourge of Nel Toth

Highborn Ghoul does nothing in this format. it can be replaced with something to get chip away at opponents life better i suggest Gempalm Polluter

Nested Ghoul barely replaces himself when lost, it can be taken out for Noosegraf Mob which adds a few more guys to the table

take out Disentomb and replace it with Reanimate to cut out the middleman, your hand. same goes for Raise Dead i would put in Animate Dead because it puts it on the field and can take from any yard. i would also cut Gravepurge and slot in Zombie Apocalypse yeah it is double the mana but you dont clutter your top deck and get all your guys out instead of slowly over the course of a few turns. remove Macabre Waltz for Dance of the Dead for the same reasons as Disentomb. another mass reanimate spell is Living Death my opinion would to remove Urza's Incubator for it.

to get into more blue take out Sanguimancy and add in Frantic Search for free card draw basically. also remove Underworld Connections for Rhystic Study. Life's Finale can be replaced with Cyclonic Rift. You already have Lord of the Accursed so Graf Harvest can come out for Lim-Dul's Vault to set up what you need. i would take out Liliana's Indignation for Traumatize indulgence is such abad mana sink you should add Dark Salvation as a mana sink and remove From Under the Floorboards. adding Traumatize works well with cards like Undead Alchemist so to slot him in remove Liliana's Reaver in addition to buff this little synergy remove Darkest Hour for Altar of the Brood to make tokens all night.

Haunted Fengraf is slow because you sac lands and you dont even get to choose you target i would replace it with Unholy Grotto. take out Leechridden Swamp for a swamp there are better ways to get to your opponents life with your mana. graveyard decks do not need Reliquary Tower.

i see you arent running the grimgrin-gravecrawler-diregraf captain combo, i would take out Jet Medallion for Phyrexian Altar to be able to kill the table. also for replacements for the captain remove Adaptive Automaton and Prized Amalgam (its slow) for Vengeful Dead and Plague Belcher

i would also try to find more slots for a for like 4 counter spells

you can check out my list for other combos http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/rise-of-the-dark-realms-4/

i switched out Tyrant's Choice for Underworld Connections and subbed in Altar's Reap for some more card draw

hoardofnotions on Budget Karl B/W lifegain EDH

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick

Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections

or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough
