Golgari Obliterator




My take on a Phyrexian Obliterator deck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any particular reason for Oblivion Stone?

I like Languish with Phyrexian Obliterator. Since it usually clears the board but leaves the Obliterator!

Also, Ulvenwald Tracker for Phyrexian Obliterator wreckage, or Domri Rade if you turn the deck into jund. Make their creature fight Obliterator, creature probably dies... and then they sacrifice a ton of permanents.

You don't really want to draw multiple Ulvenwald Tracker though, so you run Traverse the Ulvenwald.You will get delirium really fast, then Traverse lets you tutor for Obliterator if you don't have it, or Ulvenwald Tracker if you do! Can also tutor for Urborg if you need black mana, or Eternal witness if you need to return something from your graveyard.

Can also add a one of Scavenging Ooze to tutor for against the right matchup.

Ohh, and Blooming Marsh!

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm also considering Grim Flayer here as well

I'd probably play Tarmogoyf over Grim Flayer, but why not both?

Your mana curve is pretty high, maybe some Birds of Paradise, helps with fixing your black mana too.

GreenisGod lol I originally had bop in here but took them out. Gonna playtest more to see how it runs with and without them.

The only thing I think that you may want here still is Grim Flayer possibly.

Oh actually one more thing, have you considered Yahenni's Expertise? This might be worth consideration over Languish. Unless you feel that extra toughness will matter much, I however think the expertise is better as you have plenty of things to cast off of it.

I'm not sure what you use 2x Mortuary Mire, 3x Noxious Revival, and 3x Eternal Witness for? Seems a bit overkill. Especially when all your discard is on your SB.

Also I would probably cut 3x Forest and add Blooming Marsh #4 and 2 more black fetches. I think Bloodstained Mire is cheapest.

I agree with the above that Grim Flayer would be good here. You don't really need Life from the Loam but if it's working for you no harm done. I would drop Ulvenwald Tracker completely. It's a horrible top deck and requires a board state to even be worthwhile.

I think you could benefit from throwing in a couple Twilight Mires. with 4 Forests in the deck, I can imagine that there are a lot of cases that drawing one means you can't cast the Phyrexian Obliterator when you want to.

I also don't understand Noxious Revival or Raven's Crime in the deck. I feel like Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are more powerful to have in your mainboard. Prey Upon would be a suitable replacement for Ulvenwald Tracker.

Lastly, I would probably go to 4 Abrupt Decay between the main and the board of the deck. It is very versatile removal spell, and I find it is relevant a lot.

Awesome thanks guys! Will do the reworks on the lands. I run Raven's Crime + Life from the Loam to force my opponent to topdeck whereas I have additional draw off Dark Confidant. Gonna swap out Noxious Revival for Grim Flayer since I already have Eternal Witness.

March 22, 2017 9:34 p.m.

And I'll playtest with Prey Upon instead of Ulvenwald Tracker. Im just thinking though that prey is a one off where as tracker is a pop every turn until their board is empty.

March 22, 2017 9:39 p.m.

Interesting deck. I think Eternal Witness, Noxious Revival and Life from the Loam would do the opposite of what you want for Tarmogoyf and for your delirium trigger on Traverse the Ulvenwald. Check out my version when you get a chance.

The only major problem that I would have with this deck is that your average cmc might be a bit high for Dark Confidant.

Also, your sideboard is basically just craploads of hand destruction. I personally love taking stuff from my opponent's hand, but maybe you should have other things Maelstrom Pulse or Thragtusk.

Now that I have given this some more thought, here are some additional ideas.

I think this one could be sort of funny, Arena + Phyrexian Obliterator. You could cut a Mortuary Mire. Deadly Allure also even works, although you do t want many of these. Then if you think about it, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes it a swamp, which might mean you could cut the other Mortuary Mire perhaps too for another of one of these lands.

Besides that I think Collective Brutality as a 1-2 of over Raven's Crime might be worth considering. Although I see why you were thinking Raven's Crime based on your explanation.

For your sideboard I have some suggestions too, 1x, Damnation, 1x Creeping Corrosion, and 2x? Fulminator Mage possibly. I also agree on Stephencliffe's suggestion of Maelstrom Pulse. More Abrupt Decay as also suggested sounds good mainboard.

I would cut down your number of Surgical Extractions by either 1-2. Cut the Oblivion Stone maybe, for that Maelstrom Pulse or Damnation. Then consider moving some of that hand disruption to the mainboard possibly?

Or if you want to be a horrible person, you could run loampox. That's a combination of Smallpox and Life from the Loam. Add in some Rain of Tears or fulminator mage, and you have a land destruction deck in golgari. You could even go so far as to take out the Phyrexian Obligator and put in some dark confidant and maybe some Liliana's. Just run all the nasty things.

I like some of the suggestions here, forgot to take out the mortuary mire's earlier. Will fix that. If I was going to go the land destro route id just rebuild my black/red.
