Wretched Gryff Discussion

Why are you removing cards from BFZ and OGW? If you're trying to make it post rotation ready cards in SOI and EMN rotate at the same time that BFZ and OGW cards do at the end of Sept, 2017. You have less than two months to play this deck.

Consider more Deep-Fiend emerge targets. My suggestions are to include Champion of Wits and Haunted Dead. Both these cards can be used efficiently to emerge Deep-Fiend while also helping to activate Delirium. They also have synergy since you can discard Haunted with Wits.

I would replace Sifter Wurm, Wretched Gryff and 2x Liliana, Death's Majesty for them.

Not a standard-player at all, just so you know.

I think Wretched Gryff is a pretty important card for emerge decks as he lands a turn earlier than most emergers, flies and also doesn't generate minus because of his "draw a card". Also, Weaver of Currents seems interesting with emerge as he virtually lets you play your emerge 7 guys for only 2.

I'm reviewing your card list! It seemed easier to do it here, where I can take full advantage of all the CSS/HTML tags and such. I'll do this in installments, so without further silliness, I will begin!

Cultivator's Caravan

This is a good card, and great in Commander, after you've already included a Darksteel Ingot, since it's double usage as both a standard fixer ( for an artifact with ": add one mana of any color to your mana pool.") and a handy 5/5 vehicle to smash people with. However, in your Standard Mono-Black deck, you don't need mana of any color but black, and if you're going to have a 3 drop vehicle in your deck, there are far more scary ones to include than the Cultivator's Caravan.

Grasp of Darkness

A powerful card, for sure. It has a mana cost you can easily afford, and it hits nearly every major threat in the current meta. You can kill a Felidar Guardian before it becomes a threat, smash The Heart of Kiran right after it's been crewed, and even kill one of my poor Wretched Gryff before it explodes into a giant pig. That being said, it's also an expensive card, and it rotates out as soon as Amonkhet comes out, making it difficult to want to spend the $16 for a playset of them.

Harsh Scrutiny

A great sideboard card for you. Perfect for grabbing that early game Winding Constrictor, or a Felidar Guardian, or, if you're feeling spiteful, even their poor, cute, giant Decimator of the Provinces. This is cheap, and sideboards in well without altering your mana curve.

Herald of Anguish

These guys are well feared, but not the easiest thing to cast, and vulnerable to Lightning Axe, and Caught in the Brights. You already have one in your deck, and running a second one could mess up your curve a lot. In my opinion you're better off having one as a nasty surprise for your opponent than you would be using them as a win-con.

Hope of Ghirapur

A good 1-drop for your deck to sideboard in instead of Augmenting Automaton. As a sideboard card they fill a double-role, with being an okay little flying blocker to stall vehicles that you can bring back from your graveyard and keep casting to block with, or against "burn" style decks, you can sacrifice them and stop your opponent from hitting you with Alms of the Vein, Incendiary Flow, and other such nastiness. A very good addition.
Final rating: /

Lost Legacy

Another great one for your sideboard, in particular against decks that are heavy on enchantments, or combo decks that really, really need their Felidar Guardian and Panharmonicon in order to get an auto-win. It has a slightly high mana cost, but the effect in round 2 is devastating to the right deck.

This is only the first 6 cards! I'll keep working on your list!

I'd be willing to pay slightly more for the Chasm Skulkers, as it's really not a big deal since they're barely that bad, and has such a good synergy with Skyship Plunderer. Plus Stratus Dancer is very important to that effect as well, and a counter is always very nice, allowing us to bluff alongside Gudul Lurker (who also synergizes with Plunderer). Wretched Gryff could be a decent way to trigger Skulker's death trigger for ourselves, and Horribly Awry is a very good counter for the deck, to compliment the coverage Dancer gives us on noncreatures and aggro creatures.

Maybe not super helpful for your deck, but Wretched Gryff seems like it would have super synergy with cards with affinity like Frogmite and Myr Enforcer

If you didn't read the description of the deck, please do. Elder Deep-Fiend is way better than Wretched Gryff since it has flash, which makes me able to, for example;

  • Sacrifice a creature targeted by removal, fizzling their removal spell and getting a bigger creature on the board.

  • Tap down their team before they attack, or activate my Kozilek's Return, most likely clearing the board and leaving me with a big 5/6 creature to attack with next turn.

This deck wants cards in the graveyard, that's why I have cards like Cathartic Reunion and Tormenting Voice. The madness part isn't really what the deck is looking for.

I think if you cut one Elder Deep-Fiend, and replace that with 1 more Wretched Gryff you may see a better result. Not sure why you run Cathartic Reunion and Tormenting Voice. I'd drop one group for another burn spell, or some counter stuff. Just seems like you only have one madness card, and having multiple discards is un necessary.

You may want to consider using Emerge cards such as Decimator of the Provinces, Elder Deep-Fiend, and Lashweed Lurker (this one is especially good with Ingest, put a threat back on top of their library and force them to exile it).

They all have great on-cast effects, which means that you'll still get them even if the creature gets countered (unless they Disallow the ability). You can also easily curve up into them with creatures that make the Scion tokens, like your Eldrazi Skyspawner.
