Crippling Fear Discussion

Cards that I don't think are that strong and some replacement recommendations:

Disrupt ---> Thoughtseize

Plague Wind ---> Kindred Dominance

Oona's Blackguard ---> Thought Vessel

Murder ---> Crippling Fear

Must include lands: (maybe go up to 38 lands) Reliquary Tower

Command Tower

Path of Ancestry

Sea Gate Restoration  Flip

Other good/fun cards you should consider: Sol Ring (must have for commander)

Feed the Swarm (for the enchantment removal)

Bident of Thassa (good cards draw for small evasive creature decks)

Rhystic Study (annoy opponents/great card draw)

Torment of Hailfire (You should keep this one in, great finisher)

Silundi Vision  Flip (good replacement for one of your tapped lands)

Murderous Cut (cheap removal)

Dismember (cheap removal)

Opposition Agent


Spell Swindle

Mystic Confluence

ok, Whitelionq and SefTheReject

Vamps getting some new toys.

Callous Bloodmage is honestly a really good vamp. His third effect turns him into a 3 mana Tormod's Crypt on legs.

Faceless Haven is Mutavault's big brother, turns into a 4/3 vigilance vampire for 3 mana. Vigilance on a manland means it can attack AND tap for mana. Only problem is he needs SNOW mana. Given what makes multicolored decks work is fetches and shock lands, Rakdos/Orzov/Mardu vampires need to be running Blood Crypt and/or Godless Shrine plus the fast or pain lands for their respective colors. So, Haven only works really in monoblack vampires. I'm certain there are other new supports on the way. If nothing else for black, if not vamps. Such as Baleful Mastery , or the black tribal boardwipe Crippling Fear , which is mainboard-worthy.

Also Crippling Fear seems really bad as my pieces aint sharing a type.

I'm not really sure how having a lot of X/1 creatures in a Kaervek deck is good synergy. I honestly love Clackbridge Troll and I'd love for there to be a semi-good deck where he's played, so I'll try and help out here.

The ideal situation is of course to have a T4 Clackbridge and T5 Kaervek. There should be some kind of redundancy to make this combo easier and get rid of some slightly larger creatures your opponent has. Crippling Fear will help there, and if you go into another color like red, you can have Storm's Wrath or other sweepers. Sadly, Massacre Girl is no longer in the format.

I'm not really sure what else synergizes with a card like Clackbridge Troll, and this deck doesn't really have an identity outside of it. You could turn it into Rakdos Midrange, perhaps, or Golgari bigstuffs, but there are just not enough good cards that fit into this deck at the moment.

TheVectornaut on my attemp at a deck..

Straight up, I don't think I've ever seen a non-proxy Damnation cast in real life. Anyway, if you're struggling against some sort of elf combo, maybe add hand disruption to slow down or stop them. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are the classic picks, but I also like Collective Brutality and Harsh Scrutiny for more narrow applications. Or, if you're looking to punish the draw, Underworld Dreams or a splashed Notion Thief could be pretty funny, albeit less effective. A final suggestion might be type-hate cards. Plague Engineer naming elf and Crippling Fear naming vampire might get the job done but would probably require removing Ayara.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds on Sliver Deck (Looking for help)

I like the deck. I might suggest removing Biomancer's Familiar for Sliver Hivelord . If that is too expensive, maybe remove Cyclonic Rift for Crippling Fear , or River's Rebuke .

Paandaas, we can help give you more specific advice if you show us your decklist.

Generally speaking, the following are the best sideboard options:

Cling to Dust , as King_marchesa stated above, because it’s a cantrip (draws a card at instant speed) and can eliminate a recursive threat in the opponent’s graveyard, or it could help you gain life in a pinch. Tormod's Crypt or Soul-Guide Lantern are good options as well for graveyard hate.

Feed the Swarm is critical, run 4 if you aren’t running it mainboard already, since it’s one of two black cards ever printed that remove enchantments (the second being the more expensive Pharika's Libation ).

Duress and Agonizing Remorse are ideal for analyzing your opponent’s hand (and therefore their deck strategy) and eliminating threats that you cannot remove later, like artifacts or enchantments.

Necromentia is useful for removing a specific threat completely once you learn about your opponent’s deck via Duress or some other method.

Pestilent Haze kills small indestructible creatures or targets multiple Walkers.

Epic Downfall is a possibility if you anticipate going up against large creatures.

Witch's Vengeance is very specific but could be a possibility if your meta leans heavily towards one tribal deck.

Crippling Fear is great if you are running a tribal deck to protect your own creatures.

Extinction Event is another decent sweeper you can use to your advantage.

Feed the Serpent is expensive but another removal option.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hey SultaivsAbzan, I haven’t had the opportunity to test this out in actual matches yet, but if you or anyone else has any experience, I would be happy to hear about it! I’m not sure what you mean about unlocking Narfi’s showcase frame tho. If you want to use it on T/O, you can select it as an alternative version (KHM:329).

Thanks for the suggestions TonyRik, I took your advice and dropped the Demonic Embrace s for now, I’ve won games with it in the past, but you are right that it is expensive and often slow. I added Crippling Fear to the mainboard, to take advantage of the zombie creature type (Egon also survives, which is nice). If enchantments are a big issue, I would bring in the remaining 2 Feed the Swarm and the 4 Wilt on the sideboard.
