Viscera Seer Discussion

n0bunga on All Nightmare Long (SBT Primer)

Had a thought about revisiting SBT, regarding Protein Bulk, how would this sequence be:

  1. Flash Hulk
  2. Grab Viscera Seer and Phyrexian Delver, returning hulk.
  3. Sac the hulk to Seer to grab Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Walking Ballista

Granted, it's a lot slower than the Mogis/HD Package.

More cuts, you say?

I'm not wildly keen on the amount of point-removal you're currently running. It's a little meta-dependent, but you're already running 7 vampires that can deal with opposing creatures, making the 10 instants and sorceries feel a bit extra. I would keep the vampires, and then run only the strongest/most flavorful of the other 10. Keep New Blood, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Urge to Feed; cut Terminate, Swords to Plowshares, Mortify, Feast of Blood, Crackling Doom, and Victim of Night. I'd also advocate adding in Vindicate. Really none of the current instants you run are bad per se (I mean, Swords to Plowshares is the best removal spell printed in Magic), but in the interest of making meaningful space, this is where I'd start. Hell, if you really think you need more spot-shot, you could add Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, though I don't care for his services. Vein Drinker is a solid option, however.

You could still trim a Sorin, though he is pretty nifty. Solemn Visitor is my least favorite.

Blind Obedience and Stensia Masquerade are somewhat unneeded. The Masquerade does improve some if you add in Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace (actually, I recommend running Rix Maadi regardless). The Dungeon Palace also enables you to trim Call the Bloodline if you wish.

Blasphemous Act wants to become a Damnation, with Vampire Nocturnus in the deck.

You aren't running Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, or Black Market, so you only have Nirkana Revenant and Crypt of Agadeem to power up Exsanguinate. I think I'd cut it for a more impactful card.

On the topic of Nirkana Revenant, run more swamps! Yes, they're expensive, but you're going to have to track down two original duals (Scrubland and Badlands) and black fetches to make 3-color-Revenant functional. On the plus side, this would also enable Cabal Coffers, and the fetches synergize with Nocturnus. Bloodhusk Ritualist and Gatekeeper of Malakir will thank you likewise. Canyon Slough and Smoldering Marsh should at least replace some basic mountains.

Look at your color costs: You have only 10 red symbols, and 13 white. You don't need to run R/W dual lands (Sacred Foundry et al). You can get by with just black/x lands.

Blood Artist/Falkenrath Noble are better in Olivia Voldaren than Edgar. With Olivia, you want more sac-outlets to ditch borrowed creatures in the event of Olivia's downfall, so the drain effects are a little more consistently powerful. With Edgar at the helm, I think you'd want to add in Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to augment Butcher of Malakir and sacrifice effects such as Viscera Seer and Indulgent Aristocrat. Without all that, they just aren't reliable enough.

I strongly dislike Mathas, Fiend Seeker. Political play and Group Hug be damned- I want my opponents to suffer alongside me, not get free goodies.... bunch of filthy, free-loading, commie-hippies....

Herald’s Horn doesn't excite me unless you're at 50%+ creatures of the chosen tribe, which is a tall order for most tribes.

Teferi's Protection is sick, but Edgar puts out a lot of tokens, which feel bad with phasing. Not that it's a bad inclusion, but Angel's Grace might be more what you want if you really think you need a Ace of Saves (unlikely). Or if you're after the board protection, Boros Charm could be considered, though it won't help with Merciless Eviction and tuck sweeps.

Dang, Dragon Broodmother triggers EACH upkeep?! I thought it was good when I was playing with it wrong...

Deathreap Ritual if you can trigger it with Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc

Hi,

a new and interesting commander for sure! I haven't played much tribal yet, so I might not be aware of his full potential yet, but let me give you some cards that came to mind when looking at him:

There should be more, but this gives you something to consider for now :)

Good luck!

I was considering finding room for Carnival of Souls so as to make infinite etbs and vamp tokens with Viscera Seer, Cloudstone Curio, and either soul sister while Edgar does his thing.... thoughts?

multimedia on Marchesa, The Black Rose

1 week ago

Hey, the Avg. CMC of this deck is very high consider adding more artifact ramp to compensate such as Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence.

These are more suggestions in no order:

Consider some more early game plays because you want some ceature set-up before you play Marchesa. Baleful Strix is a very efficient creature for only two mana. It's also great when it gets dethrone. Carrion Feeder is a 1 drop free sac outlet that can give itself counters very good with Marchesa. Bitterblossom can gives you a constant basically free source of creatures to sac and with Oona's Blackguard also in your control can be very bad for your opponents.

If you're sacing creatures then Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls can be draw engines with Marchesa. With cards like Feeder, Viscera Seer, etc who are free sac outlets. They're also nice to get some advantage when stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them. Fleshbag Marauder, Mulldrifter and Sidisi, Undead Vizier are all excellent creatures who can sac themselves giving you value in return.

Sadistic Hypnotist has a very powerful free sac ability. A secondary theme here is stealing your opponent's creatures and sacing them for value Olivia Voldaren is one of the best creatures who can do this. She also puts counters on herself which is great with Marchesa.

Culling Dais and Phyrexian Arena are additional draw. High Market having a land that can also be a sac outlet is good.

Good luck with your deck.


Liukus on Evoke Creatures and Resolution of ...

2 weeks ago

For example:

Shriekmaw can be cast for to destroy a creature, and then it would be sacrificed due to Evoke's text.

My understanding of this would be that the following will be placed on the stack once Shriekmaw's cast spell resolves:

  1. Sacrifice Shriekmaw trigger
  2. Shriekmaw's ETB trigger
Now the stack resolves in reverse order as it should.

Now, let's say I use something like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer, I could allow the top-most ETB from shriekmaw to resolve, and respond to the about-to-be sacc'd trigger and sac it with something else (or use any sort of instant-speed to affect him) and possibly negate the first sac trigger from the evoke cast?

Lutachris23 on Plunder the Graves Upgrade

You should add in Viscera Seer as a recurrable sac outlet. Adding Ashnod's Altar is great, but its even better to get ones that you can return to play with Meren. Also Spore Frog is silly with her
