Vengeful Pharaoh Discussion

CaputStercoris on Jarad dredge deck

Hey, just a few ideas I use myself...I hope they help.

One of my favorites for something like this is Sewer Nemesis...not only does it boost the crap out of your creatures...but its a crap monster!

A strong card in any deck like this is: Gnaw to the Bone I cannot tell you how many times this one has saved my butt in a similar deck play.

Also, for a great deal of control from the grave, I would suggest adding at least 1 of each: Vengeful Pharaoh and Genesis (Perhaps in place of your doomblades)...

I would personally prefer Dawntreader Elk to the Birds of Paradise simply because it has potential to boost both land and your creatures from the grave...but its ultimately up to you.

One card that can deliver a death-blow from a deck like this is: Haunting Misery, but I wouldn't go overboard (Learned that one the hard way)...not modern or standard legal...but neither is Tendrils of Despair a great alternate to one you already play.

And if you feel like smashing the piggy bank...Crucible of Worlds (This can be strong in conjunction with things like Walking Atlas or Skyshroud Ranger...Or perhaps Groundskeeper would work better than all of this and save you a little cash...

Not sure how well red jives with this deck. I personally play something similar with blue (for the hand filter) but go out and find what works for you! I hope I helped and didn't just confuse you more.

Glad to see it confirmed that Vengeful Pharaoh is that missing demon in Liliana's story!

No Bloodghast seems like a mistake. Also, Vengeful Pharaoh and Squee, Goblin Nabob are REALLY good in Loam Pox, the later especially with Zombie Infestation.

Dude, thanks. I'm actually looking for a Grave Titan and got Wonder like an hour ago.Gravecrawler, Cryptbreaker and Vengeful Pharaoh seem really into the flavor of what I'm trying to do. I actually thought about Noosegraf Mob before, just wasn't really sure, now I am, it will go in as soon as I get it.

Noxious Ghoul!! Believe me, I've been looking everywhere in my city for that card, but still no one, but yeah, that card will go in.

I've played a more creature-based version of this commander, so while my suggestions may be skewed towards creatures, I hope they'll be helpful at the very least.

Also, Grimgrin, Gravecrawler, and Rooftop Storm is an infinite loop for massive damage, if that kind of thing matters to you.

Vengeful Pharaoh is really sweet in the main against decks without many threats like grixis control or decks with lots of little creatures like death and taxes, goblins, or burn. The fact that you can discard the pharaoh at instant speed with Lotleth Troll or a well timed Grisly Salvage can make attack phase really tricky for your opponent which is a situation I like to be in. It could be in the sideboard depending on the metagame, there are so many cards that look good in the main that I'm switching it up all the time anyways.
