Vengeful Pharaoh Discussion

Polupus on Faux Pox

@Weenie_Roaster9000 :


Yeah Painful Quandary is kind of expensive and it's rare that I'm able to get it on the field in time to matter, but it is game over once it's out with Necrogen Mists. They essentially can only play 3 more spells for the rest of the game, which helps shore up the weakness to topdecks most discard decks have. This generally stops most opponents from trying to race The Rack in damage and is really good against storm and control decks. This deck is more durdly than most discard decks and I've been trying to model it more on legacy pox than on other 8rack decks by diversifying my threats.

I really like Waste Not. I can imagine playing it turn 2 then using cheap discard to ramp into a Vengeful Pharaoh or Painful Quandary turn 3 as well as helping offset the symmetry of Necrogen Mists.

Hello there. I would like to suggest Vengeful Pharaoh. It's a wonderful shield against commander damage or just generally nerfing someone's beater. And with your general you can sac him for 5 zombie tokens and get him in the graveyard at will making attacking you a very precarious prospect.

Also not sure what sort of budget you're working with but also recommend Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and a Liliana of the Dark Realms. The lands are just plain great in mono color decks and that particular Lily is amazing for mono black since she gets lands and has buff/removal in her -3. I like never ultrasound her because keeping her around is more fun.

Mind's Eye. A poor man's rhystic study.

Vengeful Pharaoh is also fun.

Gravespawn Sovereign for repeatable conversion.

I had not even though of Grisly Salvage I will make the change asap. Commune with the Gods will also be maybe for the extra chance to grab the Nylea, God of the Hunt to get that trample on Boneyard Wurm and Ghoultree more consistently. Though Mortal Combat might see a cut for Vengeful Pharaoh considering after changes I may not have enough creatures to get the triggers consistent enough late game. It will take some testing.

Looks pretty fun, I like Llanowar Augur. I would run Grisly Salvage over Scout the Borders though, it's the same thing for less mana. Also Commune with the Gods might be worth looking into as well, since it can grap your Mortal Combats. Also, I really like Vengeful Pharaoh in these style of decks, possible five mana slot over The Gitrog Monster? It's something to consider.

I would put some pillow fort cards in here. If you don't have a reason for a player not to attack you then you'll be target #1. Most players don't like playing against stax so they will all gang up on you. Cards like No Mercy, Vengeful Pharaoh, Dread, Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter will all detour people from targeting you. Additionally, any card that works directly with Mogis is awesome since he usually sticks around. So Blood Artist, Bloodchief Ascension, Harvester of Souls, Hissing Iguanar, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Swarm of Bloodflies, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, etc. are all a lot better when paired with Mogis. Also damage doublers will speed it up too. Wound Reflection is one you missed. If you really want to ruin people's day Stranglehold + Maralen of the Mornsong OR Ob Nixilis, Unshackled + Maralen of the Mornsong are super oppressive and awesome combos.

Bom... talvez te faa falta a mais um Lupine Prototype, porque o deck parece bom para rapidamente ficares sem mo. Dark Withering parece-me essencial como removal instantneo. A Drana, Liberator of Malakir no est a a fazer nada no maybe. Pode ser gira e boa, mas no tem sinergia com o deck. Jagged Poppet para jogar com 4 cpias. 1 Vengeful Pharaoh tambm fica a ninduh.

Outras coisas boas para este deck seriam por exemplo Lingering Souls ( branco, mas s o irias jogar com mana preta), Faithless Looting ( brutal, como disse o outro senhor), Bloodghast (at j tens e brutal para fazer sinergia com quase todas as cartas que tens); Gathan Raiders tambm seria uma ideia gira. Tombstalker um bicharoco interessante para meter no campo por uma ou duas manas. Tens um bom one drop no Big Game Hunter, devias ouvir o senhor e meter o Squee, Goblin Nabob, tens o Extractor Demon (tenho a carta) para descartar, 4 Grave Scrabbler seria OP, Gobhobbler Rats seria giro, Mindslicer seria engraade, Rakdos Augermage idem e Rakdos Pit Dragon tambm e uma boa ajuda seria teres um ou dois Call to the Netherworld.

Por fim, se quiseres ganhar jogos: Ensnaring Bridge. Gg

I play this commander, love it. Four hero cards in my deck are:

Buried Alive is a great way to get your best zombies into grave for command ability

Secrets of the Dead is great, because Gisa and Geralf's ability counts as casting from grave. (Says already considered by you, really consider it. It's great)

Vengeful Pharaoh has basically deathtouch from grave. Either people forget about him and swing with a big guy, or he acts as a deterrent against attacking.

Moonlight Bargain look at top 5 and put zombies into grave and anything you really want into hand for very small life
