Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal and extra turns. People rarely see it coming. Using hatred sucks because it is additional cost to cast is life, so you can have imp's mischief as a backup to removal. Same with insidious dreams.... this deck seems very very weak to blue. Have you considered perhaps the double edged sword Defense Grid ? Or hell, since you don't care about losing life, become the blue player with Withering Boon ! Show them what a Goku shooting a kamehaha can do!

Contamination - Synergy with bitterblossom, counterspell bait, brtual.

Rings of Brighthearth - Synergy with your commander, top, aetherflux....karn, ayara, razaketh, fetches,

No Reliquary Tower for necro?

Cavern of Souls - For blue! Same with Boseiju, Who Shelters All . Volrath's Stronghold should be highly considered as well to avoid commander tax and get back important pieces.

CUTS....

This is a combo deck so Karn Liberated at 7 for removal of 1 card seems weak. Would add in Blast Zone , Karn, the Great Creator , or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon .

Lotus Petal - Seems better in decks like locust g-d with built in card advantage to mitigate the card loss. You don't have much card draw in the deck so a few timely pieces of removal and you're gone.

Might I suggest using Withering Boon instead of Deathgrip ?

Unfortunately there is no common printing of Withering Boon so im not so sure what to replace it with. This deck is open to suggestions

Mana Maelstrom

Land

: Add , , , or to your mana pool. Until the end of turn, pay 1 life for each spell you cast or copy or it becomes countered.

The convergence of energy spiraled in a whirl of danger and of ruin. I saw its power and wanted it for myself.


I was thinking of Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and wanting a card that was somewhat balanced cascade or storm effects.

Let's have a Golgari-themed and golgari-colored counterspell! (be inspired by Veil of Summer and/or Withering Boon )

If you included some cards that retrieve cards from the graveyard as well in the deck you could counter your own Phage with things like Dash Hopes and Thrull Wizard . Your Withering Boon would also compliment this.

Things to put Phage into your hand from the graveyard could be Aid the Fallen , Call to the Netherworld , Cemetery Recruitment , Disentomb , Ghoulcaller's Chant , Grim Discovery , March of the Drowned , and the new Order of Midnight . There are plenty more with the same effects but I'm only listing the 1 and 2 CMC options since less mana is always better!

Don't ask what to remove for any of this... just some good synergies.

Captivating Crew and Puppeteer Clique can steal and effectively remove creatures paired with Greven. Doom Whisperer grows Greven while allowing you to dig and ditch if you will, while Plunge into Darkness can find that game ending card at the right moment. Bond of Agony , Killing Wave , and Nightmare Lash all allow for payment of life with benefits. Slaughter while limited it is still relevant and repeatable removal. And lastly Withering Boon because why not.

And should of first reserved my spot on the Deck Help page... oh well, enjoy this one free. +1

This is my kind of deck! I'd suggest to swap Garza's Assassin for Murderous Betrayal since an enchantment is a bit harder to destroy, and all your Swamps for Snow Swamps. This way, Extraplanar Lens doesn't give extra mana to other players that play Swamps (but no Snow Swamps). You could also add Hex Parasite just to pay life, or Vault Skirge for a little flying blocker (with lifelink!), Lashwrithe and/or Nightmare Lash to pay life and buff a creature. Other suggestions: Withering Boon Exsanguinate Pontiff of Blight Shauku, Endbringer Vampire Nighthawk Bond of Agony Killing Wave Phyrexian Reclamation Razaketh, the Foulblooded Strands of Night Boseiju, Who Shelters All Aetherflux Reservoir Torment of Hailfire Phyrexian Processor Well of Lost Dreams
