Vial Smasher the Fierce Discussion

DrukenReaps on Jund -1/-1 Commander!!

3 days ago

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Vial Smasher the Fierce- This seems like it would be pretty good. Reyhan would give you some +1/+1 counters that you can place on your own stuff to get rid of the -1/-1 that inevitably gets on your stuff depending on how you built the deck. Vial Smasher is just a good card.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- would be my second choice if you can take advantage of the tokens.

Xira Arien or Adun Oakenshield- these two are pretty much all purpose so they work I guess if you don't want the above suggestions.

If you have a consistent play group and they are willing to bend the rules you could maybe treat Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God as though they have partner. Only if you have a consistent play group though.

Ornge on Kaervek of the CMC!

Twilight Prophet would be great in this deck. also, I would reccomend having Vial Smasher the Fierce as your commander, not Kaervek

Barsan on The Devil On Your Shoulder - EDH Tempting Deals

Where in the world is the amazing Tempt cycle?? It's almost worth swapping Vial Smasher the Fierce for Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper to run the Green Tempter. If anyone takes the bait you can get a Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage to teach them the dark side-effects of these Faustian deals.

I'd suggest adding Tempt with Immortality, Tempt with Vengeance, and Tempt with Reflections and seriously considering making the swap and running Tempt with Discovery

Not much of a modern player, Flooremoji? Vial Smasher the Fierce isn't modern legal, and Fodder Launch... well... you can get a Goblin Grenade at a much better mana cost. Mad Auntie might be ok, but she's missing a rather important keyword that Goblin Chieftain has: haste.

I personally like black for goblins because you can use Mad Auntie, Fodder Launch, and Vial Smasher the Fierce.

Looks like Deathrite Shaman needs to go since it's G and your Commander is not. That will help the mana just a bit.

Otherwise, you need to shed R and W sources for more B sources. The easiest way would be to swap out RW lands for Swamps (e.g. Plateau, Rugged Prairie, and Sacred Foundry). After that, try to trim colorless sources that come in tapped or offer limited value (e.g. Nykthos and City of Brass because you run 3 colors, not 1 or 5) and add more Swamps.

Then, given all of your Stax effects, you might not need all the lands that destroy other lands, especially since you'll be taxing yourself with cards like Desolation, too. Tec Edge might be the one to drop there since it's more conditional than Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, or Wasteland.

Tariel, Reckoner of Souls might be a more flavorful commander given your Stax theme. You might also prefer partnering Akiri, Line-Slinger & Vial Smasher the Fierce given the number of artifacts you play and Vial Smasher's value.

I hope some of these suggestions help :)

Happy brewing!

jpsuchecki good suggestions but I'm trying to minimize the number of creatures I have.

But... If I swap out a few things for a couple more Instants, Vial Smasher the Fierce would be a great addition since the instants on another player's turn would trigger it too. Hmm. I think I have to figure out how to pull that off.

Older20 on Marchesa: Queen of Pain

Rough New Years Update:

Before I get to the Ins/Outs I wanted to share an image that I created in the hopes of getting a custom playmat done for my favourite EDH deck. It is a very subtly edited artwork version of the Queen herself - just with my spin / interpretation as Marchesa as a battle/pain queen that has fought for her position. Link: Marchesa


Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Didn't impress too much - will still keep on the Maybe list

Aura of Silence I still really like this card - but going to try Mana Web as an alternative Stax option

Painful Quandary Really gets the attention of the entire table in a bad way. I still like it though.

Olivia Voldaren Was actually perfectly happy with the utility Olivia provided so this might be very temporary

Fumiko the Lowblood Love this card - another temporary swap most likely

Debt to the Deathless + Exsanguinate + Gray Merchant of Asphodel Removed the entire package in favor of more control / action

Harsh Mentor Didn't do quite enough - was powerful on occasion but a lot of the time just a bear

Vial Smasher the Fierce Not enough damage - warps how I sequence spells as well which I didn't like

Erebos, God of the Dead This guy is always in and out - could always be brought back into the fold


Mana Web Trialling this card which I have wanted to for ages - interested to see how it performs

Sword of Feast and Famine + Sword of War and Peace Makes regaining Monarch a lot easier. War and Peace is surprisingly good as with the inherent card draw in the deck you often have a large hand size which can net you a lot of life

Talisman of Indulgence + Mind Stone More ramp to enable turn 3 Queen Marchesa

Deflecting Palm Trialling this to avoid losing Monarch (Often opponents only attack with only enough to steal Monarch) and occasionally to reverse blow out the game.

Grave Titan A big threat which works well with Purphoros, God of the Forge

Archfiend of Depravity Trying this fella' out. Have wanted to for a while.
