Ascendant Evincar Discussion
1 month ago
Ascendant Evincar is good in any mono black deck (he is in my “how to fit this in” pile) personally I’d drop the hedron matrix and pick up Vessel of Endless Rest I don’t like the eldrazi monument that much and you have the acromas memorial

Lowering the average mana cost a bit, one of the angels is banned now.

There are a few main options available; If your meta is increasingly dork-dependent - Ascendant Evincar is quite useful as a pseudo- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . Not ideal, but very much an option. I'll create an additional section for the description to show potential options for this flex-slot. I also feel that Minister of Pain encompasses a flex-slot, as in a dorkless environment the low-sweep is underwhelming (especially when it doesn't remove tymna)

Had some painful non-bo experiences today. Thrilling Encore isn't that good with Anafenza exiling their stuff. Probably better off with something like Make a Stand.
Plague of Vermin helped them more than it hurt. Although I gave my guys trample, their Soul Warden and Mycoloth equalized my alpha strike. I could really use a one-sided Ascendant Evincar of some kind. I was thinking of Amulet of Safekeeping, although it nerfs Ogre Slumlord. I might have to go full anti-token with Virulent Plague.
I'm leaning too hard on Merciless Eviction to undo a fortress. I could use a Nev Disk or even Purify. I also need a way to break through with my developed rat army, so I'm considering AEther Shockwave. I also need to reuse a non-rat card, possibly just add Regrowth.

I am surprised no Heroes' Podium make them all power each other.
Others that could do some good are some of the low drop legendary mostly for the ones that effect half your board negatively. Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, Isamaru, Hound of Konda or Mikaeus, the Lunarch over Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Ascendant Evincar. I can understand if it is a price thing but the Podium is cheap.

Severing Explosives enters the battlefield with X charge counters on it.
Severing Explosives's activated abilities have split-second (as long as one of its activated abilities is on the stack, players can't cast spells or activate abilities that aren't mana abilities).
, remove five charge counters from Severing Explosives and sacrifice it: Exile target noncreature, nonland permanent.
, remove ten charge counters from Severing Explosives and sacrifice it: Exile two target permanents.
"With this, anything caught in the blast will have its connection to the plane severed and cease to be anything more than a memory. At least, that's the theory."
A different choice. End the machine and the demon when they arrive.
Alternatively, if you're not familiar with any of the lore, create a lord/legend for an underappreciated tribe of creatures.

Needs more Rat Colony
With only 6 Relentless Rats you need half of your total number on the battlefield to even make them 4/4s. Most of the time they will be 3 mana 2/2s. You need a critical mass of Relentless Rats--at least 20. If you want to dedicate only a small portion of your deck to the Relentless effect, then Rat Colony is much better; unlike Relentless Rats it benefits from any rat you control, including Marrow-Gnawer's tokens. Pack Rat is also superior if you have many non-Relentless Rats.
Rat Colony is strictly better than Swarm of Rats. It's also generally better than Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Muck Rats, Nezumi Cutthroat (fear isn't worth a large power loss and "can't block", especially when Marrow-Gnawer provides fear), Pestilence Rats (Rat Colony gets +2/-2 under most conditions and costs 1 less), and Earsplitting Rats (not enough graveyard/discard synergies).
I'm not sure how Shriveling Rot serves the deck.
There are two Cabal Strongholds, so one needs to come out. Cycling lands--Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, and Desert of the Glorified--hedge against land-heavy draws. Some cheap utility/value lands like Zhalfirin Void, Encroaching Wastes, Mystifying Maze, or Temple of the False God might be good over some number of Swamps too.
Phyrexian Tribute -> Scour from Existence, Unstable Obelisk. I know black is bad with artifacts, but there is a reason Phyrexian Tribute is in 55 edh decks, and the other two are in over 5000 each, and it isn't just color restriction. They cover all five permanent types instead of just one, including the equally hard-for-black enchantments. Requiring two creatures to sacrifice, Phyrexian Tribute isn't even always easier to cast, and it's effect is far less flexible.
Speaking of Unstable Obelisk, more mana ramp would be prudent, like Wayfarer's Bauble, Mind Stone, and Commander's Sphere. Bontu's Monument isn't Jet Medallion, but is still worthwhile with 27 creatures.
I don't think there are enough graveyard synergies to make Living Death appropriate.
Night Dealings is slow, does nothing if the battlefield isn't somewhat favorable, can potentially get removed, makes you reveal, and can't get lands. Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition tutor with no fuss. If you want slow, multi-card tutoring, Diabolic Revelation, Demonic Collusion, and Increasing Ambition are reliable options. Although none feature Nezumi in their art.
