Epicurus on Always Loot the Bodies

Teh_Mammoth When I first compiled a list of what I wanted to include in this deck, I had nearly 200 cards, and that was without any land, haha. I can see a lot of different ways to build around Anowon, the Ruin Thief. One way is to win by milling out the opponents, which my build here is capable of, but it's not my intended endgame. As such, cards like Maddening Cacophony, of which there are many, is somewhat of a dead draw for me. I'd much rather draw more rogues, stuff that steals from other people's graveyards, or the couple creatures I have that get really big when graveyards are full. Honestly, I'm questioning including Bruvac the Grandiloquent, and only included Keening Stone as an alternate wincon in case the game goes long. In other words, it's not important to me that I mill anyone's entire library, just a lot of it.

Bloodchief Ascension was one of the last cards I cut to get it down to 99, and I did so because I didn't want to cut any more creatures, and didn't want to lose any more mana rocks. I'm still thinking about that decision.

Zareth San, the Trickster really does need to be in there, I agree. The only thing I can think to cut for it, though, is Scion of Darkness, and I'm too much of a Timmy to just let that one go. Do you think I could get away with dropping one of the basic lands for it? I've run commander decks successfully with as low as 32 lands before, so going down to 34 in this deck doesn't seem too awful. It does have a higher mana curve than I'm normally comfortable with, though.

Nighthawk Scavenger is a definite maybe, because I already feel like I need more rogues in the deck (notice Corrosive Mentor in the maybe board), but while Sun Quan, Lord of Wu would be a really funny drop, most of the rogues I'm running already have sufficient evasion.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

What about adding something like Corrosive Mentor, Grim Affliction, or Contagion Clasp?

JoJoem on Wasitora Deck Help Needed

@Gleeock & skoobysnackz - Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire looks pretty fun! Definitely fits in with my commander.

@griffstick - I'm definitely going to take your advice on the infect. Would it be a good idea to add some wither cards like Corrosive Mentor as well or go pure infect?

I put Grave Titan because he is so strong and works with Corrosive Mentor/Everlasting Torment very well, but Archfiend of Depravity seems to be more usefull in this deck. Thanks for help! :)

DwaginFodder on Muldrotha from the Grave

I'm not sure how much you want stuff that benefits a certain color, such as Corrosive Mentor or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, because you're in three colors.

With Muldrotha, I've really seen her done two ways: Either use her as a value tool to recur some of your stuff, or go all-in on the self-mill theme.

Either way, permanents that can be sacrificed for little to no mana cost added are really good. Embodiment of Spring is on the right track, but free outlets like Sakura-Tribe Elder are better. The Gitrog Monster is also bonkers.

The Mending of Dominaria was a card I considered for a while. The self-mill and land recursion is nice, but since the loss of the rest of your graveyard isn't optional, you might want to cut it.

Hi The_Argus,

Slitherhead or Varolz, the Scar-Striped seem like good fits for this deck. I'd also suggest some additional ramp or a -1/-1 counter synergy to fully utilise Archfiend of Ifnir, possibly something with Wither, Necroskitter or Corrosive Mentor for example?

Bobby654 on Would this trigger enrage?

I just wanna confirm if what I heard was true. I was being attacked by Frilled Deathspitter And I blocked with Corrosive Mentor Would how wither's worded mean I'd take the 2 from the dino. Or would've nothing happened to me?
