Accursed Witch Pauper EDH

Commander / EDH




A mono black pauper EDH deck which aims to pass on our flipped commander Infectious Curse  Flip around like a bad STD, from which point we can focus on raining down instants and sorceries against the afflicted player to squeeze them out of the game, upon which time Accursed Witch  Flip will be back in the command zone ready for us to dole her out again!

The deck itself uses a lot of sacrifice cards as insurance for killing Accursed Witch  Flip ourselves if our opponent wont do it for us. most of our creatures also gain effects when they die for this same reason to ensure that hardly any creature is wasted for an effect.

First of all: If you want to play Pauper, all youre Cards have to be Commons not uncommons. But beside this, I am really liking the Idea, +1. Here just some Cards you could play:Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Mind Rot, Contaminated Ground, Typhoid Rats, Shadow Alley Denizen, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Read the Bones , Defiant Salvager, Shadow Slice, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, Pulse Tracker, Murderous Compulsion, Bone Splinters, Stab Wound, Deadbridge Shaman, Boon of Erebos, Polluted Delta and Gray Merchant of Asphodel to call some. This are the first cards coming to my mind, I can look for other cards the next days.

@The_Traitor whoops! I thought they all were commons (aside from the commander of course), but I searched commons on gatherer, some of them must have shifted rarity at some point then, will have to swap a few out.

Thanks for the suggestions though! will definitely look through these when I get some time and swap some out :)

As long as they have been printed as a common you can use them. It doesn't matter if they've changed rarity or not. I would increase the land count. Also a Tormod's Crypt for graveyard hate. Maybe some more draw options. Death's-Head Buzzard is a decent board wipe on a stick (so many common creatures have a toughness of one). Festercreep is also a good one.

This deck looks like a blast to play! In 1v1 matches it'll be a beast - a flipped Accursed Witch  Flip has great synergy with all of the targeted discard you're running.

As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.

Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.

Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.

@Ubbo_Sathla Thanks a lot for the suggestions! glad you like the idea of it, I physically cant wait to play it!

Those additions sound pretty good to me, Last Caress, Contaminated Bond and Reave Soul were more in there for space fillers than anything else, but I did not know that Viper's Kiss existed, that seems like an instant addition to me!

Read the Bones, Sign in Blood and Succumb to Temptation will probably find their way in too once I think of what to cut after land space.

I think for you land base, some of the cycle lands like Barren Moor will help. Also, Doom Blade for removal?
