NV_1980 Hey man, thank you I appreciate the input. Was actually finishing up breakfast and heading to the table to do just that--add another land to Kambal... Played it some more at my lgs last night and it definitely needs a land boost. I'm sure adding two+ lands at one time doesn't help but confuse the situation. You should never really go more than +1 a land per playtest. And I do apologize for this site as it has its problems (like its competitive meter), the playtest isn't on par with reality, to say the least. In my testing I've found anywhere from 31-33 lands is optimal (outside of landfall, etc.,.), especially if one needs superfluous ramp. You start the game with a 99 card deck; one third of 99 is 33, so you will pull lands 33% of the time with a 33 land ct.. Simple maths :)) You actually begin playing the game with 92 cards in deck after you've set aside your commander, drew seven cards, plus the one you draw at the beginning of the turn, giving an access to 9 cards at the start. A third of 92 is 30.6666667... percent--rounds nicely to 31. We all know the opening hand is what determines a win or a loss, a good game or a slog. If you start with 3 lands, you will be golden. I digress.

In Kambal here, I don't think I need more than 9-10 ramp pieces. Although some of our combos require a bit of manyas. I contemplated Command the Dreadhorde upon building, your action only confirms my action to put it in deck, ha. Opp agent is a no-brainer, I have 3 just siting around, idk why I never thought of this, thanks again. Karmic Justice is still on the get list lol, and I've never been a fan of the assassin, too slow and in the open IMO. That enchantment is definitely tantalizing... Anything else you can think, just let me know, I'm always open, cheers!

I play-tested this a few times and found that the land-count is a bit low. You have some rocks, cheap-to-cast draw, one instant-mana spell and one ramp-spell in here to compensate but I found mana was still lacking in most cases. It's probably enough to increase your land-count by 4 (and keep the above mentioned cards of course :)).

As for other feedback, I think Opposition Agent fits extremely well with the themes you mentioned in your description. Another pretty good fit would be Command the Dreadhorde; you can compensate the cost of life-loss with the deck's lifegain ability after all. Karmic Justice puts a rather severe tax on lots of actions opposing players might want to use against you (so opposing spells you didn't manage to counter, could still end up hurting opponents). Royal Assassin could be superb in this deck; makes any opponent think twice about creatures without vigilance attacking or using tap-abilities. Lastly, Grave Betrayal seems tailor-made for the strategy you want to follow. It's a bit of an expensive cast, but omg is it worth it in a deck that goes all out on destroying the opposing armies.

Hope you deck works out for you.

Masterful on Necronomicon | Teysa Karlov | Primer

kirbysan Vraan is a complete tragedy and it pains me to even think about.

At this point I'd probably agree that Dark Prophecy is better than Weatherlight Compleated. I'm definitely gonna replace it, but I'm not sure if prophecy is going back in. Triple black is super tough and a Village Rites type card might be better. I also like jelwell's Imperial Seal suggestion. I've also been realized recently how strong Solitude would be in our list. It's another copy of Swords to Plowshares and while it does 2-for-1 us, it makes up for it by costing 0 mana, giving us a death trigger, and being a reanimation target.

jelwell I wouldn't say Body Launderer is a very good recursion card. It's nice that it's on a creature, but it's not consistent since we need a sac outlet. Conniving is nice for better card quality, but we don't many good ways to take advantage of the discard. This essentially just makes him a 4 mana reanimate that can potentially double reanimate with Teysa out. At that point, Victimize would probably be better if you really need a double reanimate at 1 less mana and not needing a separate sac outlet but only a fodder piece. Launderer also conflicts with Teysa in the 4 drop slot. I prefer Reanimate or Animate Dead over victimize since while they don't reanimate two creatures, they cost much less mana, don't require a sacrifice, and can target opposing graveyards. This gives them utility in the early and late game to cheaply bring back a fodder piece or reanimate an opposing Avenger of Zendikar.

Storm of Souls is good. I've tried it and Command the Dreadhorde out a lot and they both test well, but I didn't find a spot for either in the current build. I've been using Living Death as our sole mass recursion piece, but I've been missing a separate piece for redundancy that doesn't also come with a board wipe, so I might bring one of them back. I think its fair to run either since they both have their strengths and weaknesses.

DemonDragonJ on Which Card Should Replace Marshal’s …

1 year ago

griffstick, Command the Dreadhorde is an awesome card, but it does not remotely fit the theme of the deck that I am discussing, so I deliberately am considering cards that are different from Marshal's Anthem.

Necrosis24, I was already favoring Smothering Tithe, so I am very glad that you helped me to make that decision.
