DeathTouch Pingers (EDH)

Commander / EDH*



Fun deck focusing on the combo of deathtouch + firststrike , or deathtouch + ping-1-damage.

Just about every creature is black and has deathtouch, which is potent in and of itself. Deck also has a handful of support artifacts and enchantments that grant first strike or the ping for 1 damage ability. Turning any creature you have into a murder happy assassin.

Has 2 commander options which suit the deck well. The Scorpion God which has some great card draw built it, as you'll be killing creatures constantly. Another commander option is Mogis, God of Slaughter, which has better survive-ability, and deals consistent damage during each opponent's upkeep. ( If only Master of Cruelties was a legendary creature ):

Seems more tactical to put ping abilities on your smaller deathtouch creatures. Save first strike abilities for your beefier creatures, and creatures that have potent effects when doing combat damage. This way, opponents will be less likely to block, and will probably lost a creature if they do.

Ideally, you can remove most of your opponents blockers and swing with these uber creatures: Master of Cruelties, Grave Titan, Isareth the Awakener, Liliana's Reaver, Raving Dead, Virtus the Veiled,

Biggest issues you have will be against Enchantments, as you have no enchantment removal.
