Syr Konrad, the Grim does not get the love he deserves. For an uncommon legendary creature he can wreak some havoc in a multi-player commander game.

The general idea behind the deck is simple. You mill yourself, you mill your opponents, you deck yourself, you recur creatures out of the graveyard to your hand or library and the whole time your opponents lose life helplessly.

Some of the key pieces in this are:

  1. Morality Shift
  2. Living Death
  3. Mindcrank
  4. Altar of Dementia
  5. Mesmeric Orb
  6. Tortured Existence
  7. Forever Young
  8. Gravepurge
  9. Death Denied
  10. Footbottom Feast
  11. Necromantic Selection
  12. Torment of Hailfire

There are a couple ways to just win in this deck. These are as follows...

  1. Mesmeric Orb + Basalt Monolith ... generate mana with monlith, use it to untap itself 100 times and deck yourself and your opponents. However you have a shuffler in Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so you've got no worries. But what if your opponents do to? see #2.
  2. Mesmeric Orb + Basalt Monolith + Syr Konrad, the Grim. Doesn't matter if your opponents have a shuffler if their life total is 0.
  3. Mindcrank + Syr Konrad, the Grim can pretty much just win as long as someone keeps milling a creature.
  4. Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + any other zombie. Sac gravecrawler to altar and use the black mana to cast it. Repeat until everyone is dead.
  5. Morality Shift + Syr Konrad, the Grim. You can easily make each player other than yourself lose 40 or more life just playing this one spell while Konrad is in play.

Pretty Straightforward

Don't you think? It's SUPER effective. At least in my playgroup and local LGS there are folks that play graveyard decks such as Muldrotha and Konrad just neuters them. Not to mention that it just does well on its own. It thrives in multiplayer, not as good in 1v1 but that's OK..

Let me know what you think!
