Charcoal Diamond Discussion

RatTail on K'rrik Storm

I would probably say most are around a 7, with a couple 8s and 9s. I agree with switching some of the rocks, the Charcoal Diamond I had but cut for Jet Medallion . But could switch a few around for slight improvement. Mox I could take or leave, I just liked the cheapness tbh. Lol ya unfortunately I don't have a crypt or it'd go in. Pharika's cure was for spot removal and life gain simultaneously. As well as being double But could take or leave, rarely has done anything major in any game. Would u play doom blade, go for the throat, or murder if u would replace it? Corrupt is another that was used for spot removal and lifegain, I don't generally attack too much other than with k'rrik or one of the beat sticks so idk if the whip would be super useful

Personally I find the mox tantalite super fucking slow in my meta, what power level is your meta using the 1-10 scale? I'm running around the 8-9 range. Nothing is off limits, we're just shy of cEDH. I was going to suggest mana crypt too but I'm well aware you already know how powerful that card is, and you would probably have included it if you had one.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the 3cmc rocks (except darksteel ingot) especially in mono color decks. There are so many good 2cmc rocks that I don't see here that I would run OVER these rocks pretty much all day. You could even cut prismatic lens for one of the rocks that taps for black if you're needing colored mana that bad. Charcoal Diamond , Fellwar Stone even Mind Stone is stronger than prismatic. Also, I know you're only running it because of the BB cost, but you should probably be running Doom Blade instead of Pharika's cure, it has more flexibility (the exception would be if you have an aggressive 2 toughness black commander in your meta).

Brutal_B on Vile Smasher of the Face

Ender666666, you don't think the Cluestone, Locket, Sol Ring, Staff of Nin , and Vessel of Endless Rest is enough? Plus I have Bontu's Monument , Heartless Summoning and Conduit of Ruin to reduce costs. My thought process behind the land count is as follows: with so many high cmc cards and the filtering of lands via Bloodstained Mire , Rocky Tar Pit and the panoramas, I want to make sure I'm hitting my land drops every turn.

At the very least I can fish for some ramp with Chaos Wand and/or Etali, Primal Storm .

You think something like Mycosynth Wellspring , Mind Stone or Charcoal Diamond should be slotted in? I do have Mana Vault laying around...

Savaaage on Marquis De Chainer, Sadism 101

Hey OscarGoldman! First of all, apologies on the lack of replies, I've been out of the MTG environment for sometime, but was able to return recently. I think Sidisi as commander would be a much better fit for the nooze combo and would be an overall faster deck for your meta. However, I've played some games and do confirm I need to change some cards again.

Some of the outstanding cuts that I'm seeing at this point are:

Bloodchief Ascension <> Font of Agonies (Bloodchief takes too long to come online or gets destroyed before it gains value)

Geth, Lord of the Vault <> Vilis, Broker of Blood (too much mana investment, which I'd rather use to develop board or for chainer activations)

Junk Diver <> Yawgmoth's Will

Mirage Mirror <> Reanimate (Same idea as geth, mirage mirror can sometimes do cute plays but most of the time it's a win more card)

Jet Medallion <> Gilded Lotus (at most Jet will reduce 1-4 mana per turn, which is equivalent to how much gilded lotus generates, and jet doesn't impact chainer activations).

Charcoal Diamond <> Not sure on this cut may keep as is as additional rocks don't hurt.

Maybe even adding Nooze to here. With Nooze, are we going the full package? ie: mikaeus+trike+phyrexian devo+ballista? Or just walking ballista+phyrexian?

burferking on Rakdos Halves

A combo I found really early while making this deck: Soul Conduit + Treasonous Ogre . If lucky, you can bring down an opponent to 1 life at turn 2: T1 play a land and Sol Ring . T2 play a second land, cast Treasonous Ogre pay 18 life to get 6 red mana to cast Soul Conduit , pay 21 life (and get 7 red mana) to activate the artifact's ability.

I want to swap some lands for the ones in the sideboard and Charcoal Diamond for Rakdos Signet , but I need to acquire them.

TangoWithTojo on Onslaught of the Scarab God

1 month ago

So Scarab God is one of my favorite commanders so you're in luck. I have a lot of recommendations for you. Lets start off with creatures. Creatures: Though you want mostly zombie tribal, you do want a few largely impactful cards that you can discard into your graveyard and recast with The Scarab God . Some cards I'd recommend are Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sower of Discord <--- This card in combination with Paradox Haze + Wound Reflection make for an extremely quick kill for 2 people, Noxious Ghoul , Ghoulcaller Gisa , Eternal Skylord , Gleaming Overseer , Undead Alchemist , Corpse Connoisseur , Lord of the Accursed , Lich Lord of Unx and Gisa and Geralf

Lands: First of all your Crypt of the Eternals isn't legal in your deck as it has red mana. Now lands are usually the most expensive part of a deck but also the most important part of the deck. If you're willing to cough up the money or want to get proxies of them here's my recommendations: Cabal Coffers , Command Tower , Crypt of Agadeem , Fabled Passage , Field of the Dead , Myriad Landscape , Nephalia Drownyard , Phyrexian Tower , Polluted Delta , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , and Volrath's Stronghold . If you have a way of making a proxy I'd also recommend Underground Sea because this card is ridiculously expensive. Then equalize your basic lands a bit more with 13-14 swamps and 7-8 islands.

Sorceries/Instants: My recommendation is remove all of your instants and sorceries with the exception of From Under the Floorboards , Syphon Flesh , Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse . Now simply replace them with Restless Dreams , Mind Bomb and Careful Study so you have more discard outlets.

Artifacts/Mana Dorks: Most of your artifacts and mana dorks are good but could use some tuning. My recommendation is to swap Dimir Locket with Dimir Signet . Swap Prismatic Lens with Arcane Signet . Swap Star Compass with Commander's Sphere . Swap Charcoal Diamond with Darksteel Ingot . Then as an alternate win condition, you can toss in a Mindcrank and Strionic Resonator to mill your opponents as they take damage and then allowing you to double Scarab Gods ability.

Enchantments: You're missing out on some amazing potential with enchantments. Keep all of the ones you have but think about replacing Monastery Siege with a Rhystic Study or The Immortal Sun . Now I'm just gonna list off a lot of enchantments for you that work wonders in this style of deck. Pick and choose which ones you want: Tortured Existence , Zombie Infestation , Curse of Disturbance , Phyrexian Arena , Grave Pact , No Mercy , Dictate of Erebos , Liliana's Mastery , Open the Graves , Rooftop Storm <-- this one is a must have. Wound Reflection and finally Grave Betrayal . Your Endless Ranks of the Dead is new to me btw and I'll definitely be adding that one into my Scarab God deck. That thing is nuts.

Lastly your Maybeboard, the only cards I'd recommend putting in is Torment of Hailfire and Grave Titan . The rest are either unnecessary or do more harm than good. Though if you do want a planeswalker I'd highly recommend Liliana, Untouched By Death . She synergizes with the deck extremely well, especially if you have Rooftop Storm on the battlefield because now you can just recast everything from your graveyard for free.
