A successful debut, even though I didn't win. My next turn was going to be a major lifelink attack with 7 vamps (thanks to a nice Bolas's Citadel), but then we lost to an infinite pinger via Purphoros. But it had a nice CMC curve, I like the 3-mana commander, and I had two tutors to get Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. I enjoyed it and will look forward to my next game.

Cards I Have For You:
2 weeks ago
Pyrra The deck is currently landless (with the exception of MDFC's) in order to allow Bolas's Citadel to cast the WHOLE library all at once. Including Mana Severance would allow me to put land into the deck and then remove them once the Citadel madness starts.

Hey everyone, I’ll chime in as well. I first became interested in commander when I picked up the Kaalia of the Vast precon a few years ago. Ever since then I’ve been working on making my Kaalia deck as effective as possible. Recently I dove into cEDH and I changed my deck from a traditional aggro build to a hybrid aggro-stax build and I’m very happy with it. Kaalia can be slower than other super fast competitive decks, but with the stax elements I can slow down other players enough to beat them down. An interesting combo is Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric with Possibility Storm. If your opponents don’t stop you from pulling off the combo, they can no longer play any spells, and you can proceed to beat their faces in.
Here’s the deck if anyone is interested: KAALIA'S CATACLYSM (Mardu Aggro Stax)
Besides Kaalia, recently I discovered Tinybones, Trinket Thief (who I call the Tiny Punisher because he can kill every other player single-handedly and reminds me of a tiny Frank Castle lol) and I had to design a deck around it. I focus on discard and stax effects with the goal of dealing damage with Tinybones or assembling a lethal combo. If Leyline of the Void is in play, and you spend at least 1 on Helm of Obedience’s triggered ability, you exile a player’s entire library instantly! My playgroup has seen me pull this off and it strikes fear into their hearts lol. Another insta-kill combo is Bolas's Citadel plus Aetherflux Reservoir and Sensei's Divining Top. You use the Top to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, then cast the Top from the top of your deck with the Citadel for 1 life, then use the Top again to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, etc. Eventually you draw your entire deck and the Resevoir will allow you to gain more life than you lose with the Citadel. Then you can easily kill each opponent with the Resevoir.
Feel free to check out the deck: TINYBONES: TINY PUNISHER (Mono-Black Stax)

Hey, good first draft version of Yahenni on a budget. Nice to see Skirsdag High Priest, underrated casual card in multiplayer Commander :)
Do you own the cards in the sideboard? If you do consider adding Grim Haruspex and Shadowspear to the main deck? Some advice for improvements is to expand on effects that make all your opponents sac a creature, more repeatable draw sources for when creatures die and more ramp.
Some cards to consider adding:
- Oathsworn Vampire: can cast it from your graveyard, combos with Bontu's Monument to drain your opponents for one . Also interacts with Yahenni + any aristocrat for .
- Buried Alive: tutor for and put three creatures into your graveyard who can reanimate/cast themselves from your graveyard.
- Bolas's Citadel: one of the most powerful mono black cards in Commander and you can take advantage of it having your Commander be a sac outlet with a repeatable draw source. If you see a land on top of your library and you don't have a land drop for the turn then you can sac a creature with Yahenni to draw the land. This potentially lets you cast more cards from the top with Citadel.
- Dark Prophecy: triggers when tokens you control die.
- Vona's Hunger
- Demon's Disciple
- Dreadhorde Invasion
- Crypt Ghast
- Bubbling Muck
- In Garruk's Wake
- Dark Ritual
- Culling the Weak
- Rogue's Passage: make Yahenni unblockable.
- Castle Locthwain and Witch's Cottage: budget utility lands for mono black.
My advice for cards to consider cutting are instant/sorcery removal spells and creatures that only kill one creature: Walk the Plank, Drag to the Underworld, Devour in Shadow, Morkrut Banshee, Skinrender, Gatekeeper of Malakir only kill one creature and they're not as good as Ravenous Chupacabra for the effect. You can get better value for Yahenni from more removal that hits all opponents.
Unless your using Altar of Dementia as an infinite combo to mill all your opponent's libraries in one turn then it's subpar as a sac outlet since not taking enough advantage of self-mill and repeatable opponent mill is risky in multiplayer Commander where graveyards are another resource for lots of decks. In my opinion repeatable draw is better here than repeatable self-mill. Skullclamp could replace Dementia as a comparable priced card with a better effect.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Barren Moor
- Desert of the Glorified
- Polluted Mire
- Mortician Beetle
- Walk the Plank
- Drag to the Underworld
- Devour in Shadow
- Morkrut Banshee
- Gatekeeper of Malakir
- Army of the Damned
- Altar of Dementia
- Avatar of Woe
- Murderous Rider
- Geralf's Messenger
Good luck with your deck.

Krrik is awesome! I spent many hours brewing him up. Anyways, Sensei's Divining Top and Bolas's Citadel are both amazing includes and give you a 3 piece combo that goes with Aetherflux Reservoir. Additionally, Leshrac's Sigil gives you some pretty neat lines aswell as a black spell to grow krrik in a pinch. Theres even a zombie combo you can do; you just need Carrion Feeder and Gravecrawler and if you have out reservoir you got infinite life and a really big feeder :) tutors like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are a bit pricey but make the deck flow so much better.

So, I'm a huge fan of Whir of Invention and Reshape for Bolas's Citadel lines. Additionally, lowering your curve with aggressively costed high impact beaters like Serra Ascendant could help you run things like Ad Nauseam with maybe Angel's Grace to be extra degenerate and just rip through your deck. Necropotence, Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora cannot be beat when it comes to draw engines.
