Visara the Dreadful Discussion

Ghoulraiser on Black Death

I would take out Reiver Demon for Deathbringer Regent it hits more creatures and leaves you with a dragon.

add Bojuka Bog and Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

i would take out Quicksilver Amulet and [virtue's ruin] because you have the mana to hard cast things and ruin only hits 1/5 the creatures all your other removal does. replace them with Leyline of the Void & Helm of Obedience which is an infinite mill a player combo.

take out [heartless summoning, again, because you have so much ramp anyways. i think Isochron Scepter would be a good add because it you have instant kill spells like Go for the Throat also Victim of Night hits alot of creatures for a 2 mana instant, another good option for scepter could be Darkness.

i think you should take out Languish and add Toxic Deluge because it gets around indestructible creatures

replace Visara the Dreadful with Avatar of Woe you can get it out easier and it does the same thing.

Gravepurge can clutter your top deck if you have more than 1 targets and you have to wait to draw it. i think Animate Dead would be a better choice

take out Rag Dealer since he can die so easily and you will put in leyline anyway so you get your value. add in Exsanguinate it can get you your life back and it most cases due to your mana be able to kill your opponents.

Price of Knowledge can be kind of clunky, instead, i think Mindslicer would be better beacause it puts everyone in a top deck situation especially after youve been killing all their resources on field

other neat synergies you could try to find room for is Contamination with either [reassembling skeleton] or Bitterblossom to lock out the filthy nonblack players

another triskellion kill is Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer. if devourer and skellion is in the gy ooze can use the devourer affect to be huge af, then use triskelions effect to remove its counters to kill someone while the devourer ability is on the stack. its kind of a last ditch sort of thing but it works

Magus of the Coffers works with your Umbral Mantle for infinite mana. also if magus and pila-pala are in the graveyard then [necrotic ooze] becomes infinite mana by itself so you can you that Exsanguinate mentioned earlier to kill your opposition

lucal13 sadly the commander is a triggered ability and the bracers need an activated ability. I do have some so not a bad suggestion. Using it with Erebos, God of the Dead, Sisters of Stone Death, Visara the Dreadful, or Warmonger Hellkite could be fun.

What about something like Visara the Dreadful? She's a living removal spell that flies and hits hard. She seems like she could find a place in your deck. Kind of like Royal Assassin, but bigger, harder to kill, more evasive, and with a stronger effect.

Then maybe Avatar of Woe, Xathrid Gorgon and Visara the Dreadful? You lack big time in creature removal. Also, in terms of creature removal Phyrexian Plaguelord has some major chops while being ran in my BG deck, especially when ran with Dictate of Erebos

Also Shadowborn Demon works great too if you don't mind sacrificing creatures.

OriginalBlue on EDH: A Teferi Variation (06-2017)

5 months ago

With this final version, I managed to win... by distracting opponents long enough to get my Lighthouse Chronologist in play with a pair of Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. This gave me extra 'meta' turns, in which I was able to set up my next play, Vesuvan Shapeshifter, enhanced with Pemmin's Aura.

About twelve turns had passed before my 'masterplan' came to fruition.

With a load of land (and a couple of mana artifacts), I cleaned the other player's battlefields (also, I copied a Visara the Dreadful, which helped a lot) in two of the extra turns. I had backup from Lorthos, the Tidemaker to stifle any further development. In two turns after that, I had my Teferi, Temporal Archmage token, with two Lighthouse Chronologists, and the Proteus Staff in play.

I controlled and won the game.

Friends are now calling for a ban of certain cards...

Testing out a switch of commanders, Visara the Dreadful for Shauku, Endbringer to be a little bit more competitive.

Metroid_Hybrid on Need a new Mono-Black Commander..

6 months ago

So, a while back I had built my first EDH deck around Horobi, Death's Wail.. As I expected, if left alone I could take over the game, but instead I seem to only draw hate.. So now I'm looking to switch Horobi out for something a little less "cute", and hopefully without having to completely change my current list (aside from Horobi-specific tech, of course)..

Here the deck I'm working with..

Darth Horobi, Sith Lord

Commander / EDH Metroid_Hybrid


Here's the list of potential Mono-Black Commanders that I currently own, and therefore to choose from.. My "Top-3" are listed first, the rest are in no particular order..

The general goal here is to have a definitive Mono-Black deck that can survive at least a moderate amount of hate, and without being too cheesy in the process..
