Orange+ on Scarred by Death/Double Kill (Transformative EDH)

Hey man, great to see that you've added your take on Horobi, Death's Wail EDH :)

It looks like this deck has quite a few cool mechanisms that I haven't considered. But there's also a few things I'm unsure about.

Like Archfiend of Ifnir. You realise that this effect, and the effects of other "each creature" effects don't trigger Horobi, Death's Wail? The only other cards I can see the -1/-1 counters synergize with, are Necroskitter and Contagion Clasp. But I guess it fits with a -1/-1 theme, if thats what you are aiming for?

Just in case, I would also like to point out the anti-synergy between the auras like Demonic Vigor and Horobi, Death's Wail's effect because of the fact that auras target their creature when cast. But you probably already know this and is planning to use the auras before casting Horobi, in that case, you are all good :)

You could possibly swap Manalith for Darksteel Ingot.

Other than these observations I really like Grimoire of the Dead. That looks like a ton of fun! I am also curious that you chose the more mana expensive Bone Harvest over Raise Dead, and I am wondering if this is a trade I should do in my own deck. Bone Harvest does definitely have more value, and is way better than Raise Dead later in the game.

Thanks for sharing.

Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension / Leyline of the Void + Helm of Obedience / Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Cinderhaze Wretch These are some solid combos for discard tribal, and usually a quick closeout for a game.

I'd leave the Painful Quandary in and opt out Oppression. Every time I've played Oppression, its fucked me in the long run. Library of Leng is better than Anvil of Bogardan in my opinion, since it only applies to you. Definitely include that Sangromancer, crazy value in a discard deck. Mind Rake > Mind Rot just cause of the overload cost. Some cards to think about adding in Imp's Mischief, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Syphon Mind, Mind Twist, Archfiend of Ifnir, Banshee of the Dread Choir. Good lookin deck though! Hope these suggestions can help you out

how does Archfiend of Ifnir interact with your strategy? is it just when you have a big hand you get too discard?

Interesting deck. Have you considered Varina, Lich Queen as the general? She costs less than Oloro and she digs through the deck faster since her loot effect can be magnified by making zombies.

You might like these too: Havengul Lich, Dance of the Dead, Necromancy, Zur the Enchanter, Sun Titan, Alhammarret's Archive, Teferi's Ageless Insight, Rags / Riches, Adorned Pouncer, Vizier of Many Faces, Archfiend of Ifnir, Shabraz, the Skyshark, Stitcher's Supplier, Connive / Concoct, Lazav, the Multifarious

berndibend: Two general reasons -- 1) I'm playing in less of a cEDH meta right now, so the artifact stax isn't as critical, and 2) I want to regain some of the former fun aspects of this deck that I feel I've been missing.

I haven't enjoyed this list as much as I could for the last few months, so I'm testing some changes. Archfiend of Ifnir + Generous Patron is a better combo for what I need than Squirrelcraft, I think, and I want to try Nature's Will as a combination Silence/Sword of Feast and Famine. Evolutionary Leap got very very silly with Liliana's Standard Bearer's printing, and is a good way to recover after a boardwipe. And I really want to find a slot for Harvest Season, dammit XD

Have you considered wheel type effects such as Fateful Showdown or Dark Deal. Your deck seems well suited for it with Archfiend of Ifnir, Bag of Holding, and Bone Miser. These effects also combo well with Rielle, the Everwise. Speaking of the Miser, do you think Waste Not might be a better/cheaper alternative to the Miser?

zapyourtumor good call(s) here. I should mention that I have this neat app on my phone called Deckforger which I use when I’m actually constructing the decks I make, then I port them over to my account here when finished. Sometimes they undergo changes between the two, or I forget things or don’t transfer them properly.

I actually had Shriekmaw and Ingot Chewer in the sideboard on the app, but they didn’t transfer (not sure why). Archfiend of Ifnir is in the sideboard also. And Titanoth Rex definitely made the cut; I bought 2 in my last order. I’ll pass on Beast Within for now, but if I have removal problems I’ll keep it in mind. I’ll tuck it in the maybe board. Thanks for all the tips!
