MAGA - Traitor to Mortals - Rotten to the Core

With this deck I tried to capture a lot of the flavour of the commander card when it comes to the term "Traitor to Mortals". For this you will find a lot of cards in him which will be awful to all living (and dead) beings.

The main aim is to use a lot of artifacts to ramp really fast and then to hit your opponents with big life loss bombs and enchantments.

Some of the more notable combos of this deck:

  1. Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + trigger = wins you the game
  2. Deserted Temple + Cabal Coffers = lots of black mana
  3. Deserted Temple + Vesuva (e.g. as Cabal Coffers) = lots of black mana
  4. Words of Waste + Geth's Grimoire = opponents lose their hands
  5. Sanguine Bond + Blood Tribute + Nirkana Revenant = Win Condition
  6. Wound Reflection + Blood Tribute = Win Condition
  7. Wound Reflection + Quietus Spike + Creature lands a hit = Win Condition
  8. Necropotence + Venser's Journal = Lots of card advantage
  9. Rune-Scarred Demon + Ashnod's Altar + Corpse Dance = Instant tutors for 2B or 5 over and over if you have the mana.
  10. Isochron Scepter + Cabal Ritual + Mirari + Threshold (7 cards in GY) = Infinite Black Mana
  11. Bloodchief Ascension (3 Quest Markers) + Mindcrank = Win Condition

Any additional help is of course welcome.

Why I have some of these cards:

Literally what we need is a lot of ramp and speed. So this is more for our early phase of the game. Get as much mana on the board as possible.

The second part is to drain out our opponents in a good necromancer way.

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste is amazing if we just did cast our commander and can hit anyone also for a brutal strike.

Phyrexian Obliterator - doesnt let anyone come to the idea to attack as or we can use it easily to remove a couple of unwanted stuff on the board

Twilight Prophet - is a constant killer and combos nice with wound reflection already on the board
