Attrition Discussion

Yea she is the commander for Comeuppance effects, Deflecting Palm effects, Delirium effects. This is how I see it built the same most often. That's not how I built her. She doesn't give you a obvious direction to build. I have built her 3 times.

I've built her as mardu good stuff with everything having deathtouch. With the idea of losing the monarch being advantageous, to use the deathtouch tokens, as fodder for Attrition effects or Vampiric Rites Type cards.

Then I built her as monarch tribal. Basically all the benefits of being the monarch with fancy recursion and protection effects.

And the last way I built her was superfirends with a huge removal package. And a combo that uses Blasphemous Act + Vicious Shadows to kill the table if I never get to my plaswalkers ults

Looks very interesting.

Consider Mortuary Mire to add to the land base. And maybe Bog Witch for ramp.


And surely a lot of other stuff, but I wouldn't want you to detract from your theme to fit them all in.

Also, though, you accidentally put plains on the list instead of swamps.

I have some questions and some suggestions for you, since i play chatterfang alot myself:

First, you have many not so cheap cards but you have one of the not so good tutors with Diabolic Tutor, why using a cheap 4 mana tutor when you can have a 2 mana tutor Demonic Tutor.

What is the purpose of Nyxbloom Ancient in your deck? he is a 7 mana sink and it can only shine when you pull and play Cryptolith Rite. The chance to perfectly combo those cards is small and not worth it. In my opinion Nyxbloom Ancient is not good in this deck and only worth it if you have many mana dorks and not depends you to pull and play one card.

Why would you use Nevinyrral's Disk? you have many high value enchantments that you would destroy, same with Gaze of Granite, don't destroy your own enchantments. I think Rune-Scarred Demon is too much mana for what it does, it only gives you ETB one tutor and a 6/6 flying body, no synergie with tokens or lifegain/drain etc. for So much mana you can cast 1 Demonic tutor (2 mana) and a Falkenrath Noble for example.

Herd Baloth is a 5 mana useless 4/4 body without Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest or Ivy Lane Denizen to combo. You make yourself jump through so many hoops.

What i like are cards like Asceticism this is good protection, Attrition is indeed a good card for this deck and Fecundity very nice card draw for this deck.

Thank you so much! I may be stuck in the past in certain ways because there was a stretch of years when I rarely played, so some of these are fairly new to me. Vindicate is a classic of course, but I forget that it exists. Attrition is awesome, but anything more than $10 is like ... something I don't want to buy impulsively, but I'll definitely add it to my wish list (would be perfect in my Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver deck too).

I think I might have a spare Fumigate in my binder. I'll have to check next time I sit down to tinker with my decks. Because yeah, even though this isn't really a lifegain deck, it would still potentially put me ahead and be a great advantage gaining all that life! Mythos of Snapdax - I need this!

The latest few sets have given us some new options for removal besides your typical Swords or Path. Strixhaven gave us Vanishing Verse and Midnight Hunt gave us Fateful Absence. I can also make a good argument for Fumigate as a board wipe. Considering you would likely gain a lot of life if your board is full of tokens. Vindicate might be sorcery speed but it does destroy any permanent. I run Mythos of Snapdax in my human tribal deck as another partial board wipe. But a card I find helps my human tribal deck and honestly would work well in my vampire deck is Attrition. It doesn't work if your opponents are running black but it is constant removal if they aren't.

Thanks, glad to hear. Muldrotha just fuels what zombies want to do. Acererak is an infinite combo with Rooftop Storm, one of the dungeons drain your opponents. And yes, I have thought about reducing the instants and sorceries in the deck, but having some interaction is important. I may try Attrition, but the fact it doesn't hit black creatures makes it kind of problematic as black is a popular color in Commander. But, I am definitely looking at getting more permanents in here.

Nice to see another deck with Muldrotha, the Gravetide and zombie tribal. Im also rebuilding my deck with the new cards from Midnight Hunt. Why are you using Acererak the Archlich in this deck? Thought about it, but in every test, he was to slow to benefit from his abilities. Did you tought about less sorcery and instant spells to use Muldrotha, the Gravetide abilities? For example, you can switch Hero's Downfall with Attrition. Nearly same usecase but you can recast Attrition from your graveyard with Muldrotha, the Gravetide. Nice deck, i like it! :D

Oof_Magic on Trying again

I agree with the pandering but I don’t mind good lore. I think Magic has had very intriguing characters in the past defined by struggles. And this can come out as interesting cards as well from Teferi's Protection to Urza's Ruinous Blast and more. I also agree that most of the best lore can be picked up from the cards themselves from Attrition to Planar Collapse and many more.
