Capital Punishment


Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for death of taxes. Each opponent sacrifices a creature for each death vote and discards a card for each taxes vote.

Urabrask, Forge Overlord

Legendary Creature - Phyrexian Praetor

Haste, menace.

Other creatures you control have ": This creature gets +1/+1 and haste until end of turn."

Attacking creatures opponents control do not untap during their controller's next untap step.


Make an Angel that makes you the monarch as an activated ability, AND has dethrone, AND has an ETB Council's Dilemma (see Expropriate and Capital Punishment), AND has a Will of the Council as an attack trigger or activated ability (see Council's Judgment and Custodi Squire).

Phule451 on Tergrid's Terrible Thievery

It’s a bit pricey, but Sword of Feast and Famine would serve you well here. Archfiend of Depravity would also help you take a bunch of your opponents’ creatures. Another creature that’d be very helpers is Rankle, Master of Pranks . Rotting Rats is a cheap easy way to get everyone to discard, another great card for you here would be Shatter Assumptions , though a bit situational. And while heavy on mana, Archon of Cruelty is everything you want. Cabal Stronghold and Bubbling Muck can help you get there. Capital Punishment would be worth considering as would be Curse of the Cabal wins no matter how anyone votes. Virtus's Maneuver will not only help get you opponent’ creatures, but bring back key pieces. Hope at least some of that helps…

multimedia on rakdos, the showstopper/ chaos

Hey, nice start on a budget. Chaos can be a tricky theme to build.

The avg. CMC of your deck is very high at 4.3 with only Sol Ring as reliable ramp and only having 35 lands. This 4.3 number means you will consistently not be casting a card until earliest turn four, more like turn five. Not doing anything for the first four turns or more is not fun in Commander because you risk basically not having any board presence at all before turn five. My advice is add some ramp in place of a few high CMC cards (5 CMC or higher). Doing this will reduce the avg. CMC and ramp will make it easier to cast spells especially Showstopper.

Some cards for ramp to consider adding:

For the cards to consider cutting you want to make a choice of what are the best cards you want at the high end of the mana curve? Having lots of both high CMC Chaos cards and big creatures is too many high CMC cards. Showstopper is the six drop creature you want to cast. Cards to consider cutting to add more ramp:

Reanimation is a good secondary strategy when playing so many high CMC creatures. Reanimation needs enablers to get creatures into graveyard which is good with Patriarch's Bidding and Demons. Consider expanding on reanimation? Another reason to add enablers for reanimation is Anger. A haste enabler to give your high CMC creatures haste, attacking with them the turn you play them especially Showshopper.

Some card changes to consider:

Budget lands to consider adding to replace some basic lands: Graven Cairns, Ash Barrens, Grixis Panorama, Jund Panorama, Foreboding Ruins, Tainted Peak, Evolving Wilds.

Good luck with your deck.

Spectral Searchlight is fun when you have a teammate since you can use it to give your teammate mana. At any rate I think it's better than Mana Prism. Pariah could be fun since you can enchant opponents' creatures with it.

GhostChieftain, Let me get this straight - you think Queen Marchesa (long may she reign) is a flavor fail? I think Bite of the Black Rose , Ballot Broker , and Capital Punishment have something to say. The Queen's court offers a choice even though the decision has already been made. I disagree with your assessment of Queen Marchesa (long may she reign).
