RNR_Gaming on First attempt BW

This isn't a bad start for a 1st attempt. However, you may want to become a tad more creature focused and elevate the quality of the creatures - Lampad of Death's Vigil could be replaced by Viscera Seer a free outlet that gives you a scry. Additionally, you could add Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Lesser Masticore - with that free sac outlet you could scry through your whole deck and if you add an aristocrat like Blood Artist or Cruel Celebrant you can drain table; though I would definitely see if your group would be okay with combos before implementing them into a deck :) anyways, hope you enjoy the format.

Last_Laugh lol I've never even seen that card before but its actually kind of cool! An extra copy of Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat/Vindictive Vampire, perhaps?

Arcaneful on Picking a Partner for Tevesh …

3 weeks ago

Hello.

I'll keep this short and to the point. I just got a Tevesh Szat and am looking to make a partner deck with him but I am stuck between 5 options. I don't want anything overly oppresive, but I want something that is a solid partner pair I can build off of on a fair budget.

My meta is casual/competitive usually in the 75% range. Example decks include: Glissa, the Traitor KCI, Golos, Tireless Pilgrim Consultation, Ramos, Dragon Engine charms/voltron, and Mizzix of the Izmagnus combo/storm.

Currently my ideas:

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix: A proliferate/aristocrats deck. Maybe a back up win con in Thassa's Oracle.

Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa: Only here for the colors, but would win through Blood Artist loops and have a reanimator subtheme. Maybe some sort of Ashnod's Altar infinite mana loop for a Walking Ballista win.

Tana, the Bloodsower: Another aristocrats deck but this time with an overrun to win theme (End-Raze Forerunners and co for budget options)

Dargo, the Shipwrecker: I've seen some combo lines for him and I'd probably just follow those and go all in on comboing off.

Thanks for any responses.

EDIT: Fair budget means around $5-10 per card in my opinion.

I have a few suggestions that I forgot to put in the previous comment:

Gifted Aetherborn, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Eternity Vessel, Palace Siege

If you’re curious about eternity vessel magic defines life gain and life loss as the difference between one life total change to another so it would actually trigger Vito

I guess I could say your stance on the community's concerns for this secret lair is...cold-blooded (see what I did there? You're just like Negan like you claimed! Haha) /jk

Joking aside, is there a specific reason you have Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in the list? The reason I ask is because he shuts off all your "when a creature an opponent controls dies" triggers, such as Revel in Riches, Blood Artist, and Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Ob Nixilis, Yahenni, etc. If your friends are all playing graveyard decks I can see this as a piece of GY hate, otherwise you might want to replace him?

Replacements might be Despark or Elspeth Conquers Death to hit higher noncreature CMC threats.

Also you have a lot of board wipes, but I didn't see any "sacrifice" wipes aside from Mythos of Snapdax. Single Combat, Slaughter the Strong, Tragic Arrogance, and Killing Wave. These will play nice with Negan since you can save him if you want (and you'll still get the treasure tokens whether you save him or sac him).

Similar to the above comments, I also see a lot of redundancies (which is a pretty common mistake for a first commander list). With decks like this, I think it would be easier to control your own board than your opponent's, for example focusing on giving more -1/-1 is probably more reliable than hoping your deathtouch creatures clear the board. I can't really add more details that haven't been said already. However, you might want to look into cards like Black Sun's Zenith, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Blood Artist to make sure you can keep getting resources from your commander. If you want some more help narrowing down your deck/focusing on a mechanic, just let me know and I'll be happy to (try to) help!

Hey, great job on building your first deck! You seem to have the principles of deck building down and it looks pretty powerful, so I'll just offer some simple card substitutions and why.

Instead of Solemn Offering I would use Crush Contraband because it is instant speed, often hits two targets, and can remove indestructible things. (Though no life gain, which I think is part of your theme.) It is more versatile more often.

Instead of Font of Agonies I would use Dawn of Hope because this card only triggers from four other cards in your deck besides the commander: Erebos, God of the Dead, Hatred, Trading Post, and Final Payment (losing life doesn't equal spending life) I think more utility and draw options are better since you already have a lot of good removal already.

Instead of Tribute to Hunger use Blood Artist because you have so much removal already, and this card doesn't let you target anything. Blood Artist does everything this deck wants to do already and it triggers from any creature's death not just your own.

Throw in a Bojuka Bog and I think you're golden.

Good luck! I hope this was helpful to you.

Dead of Winter > Golden Demise? Or, extra bold: Massacre Wurm

Other thoughts are that Athreos, God of Passage doesn't deal damage without other observers around to force the choice to have meaning, which suggests the 4th Blood Artist may be more important. The same principle is true of Endless Whispers. Perhaps Pawn of Ulamog? Adds a nice bit of incidental ramp alongside the extra bodies.

Secondarily, I'm tempted to brew up the Golgari Germination version now. Might end up with Abzan Ascendancy...
