Dead Weight

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature gets -2/-2.

King of the Oathbreakers' ability says "becomes the target of a spell" not "becomes the target of a spell or ability" so abilities can still successfully target your spirits.

Oblivion Ring has an ETB ability that targets, it does not target as a spell and can successfully remove a spirit.

Auras target as spells and so Dead Weight will cause the spirit it targets to phase out.

I’m looking forward to building a new EDH deck with King of the Oathbreakers as my CMDR and I would like some clarification on how his phasing ability interacts with auras and enchantments. Does Oblivion Ring still work to remove one of my spirits? Or could someone kill one of my spirit tokens with Dead Weight ? Thanks in advance :)

I'm curious what a less-developed bot would come up with, or if you asked another bot for advice on this deck. There are some cards here I don't quite understand. Death's Shadow is out of place (not even a Varolz, the Scar-Striped line), Dead Weight is underwhelming, there's not enough ramp or counters other than -1/-1, and there are some bits and pieces that never quite come together into a unified whole (Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + Woodfall Primus is so close to being awesome).

if you're feeling vampire-y you might try Gift of Fangs instead of Dead Weight :) works fun with shapeshifter creatures as well

this is a really neat list. Dead Weight is going to kill a lot of things i think youd probably do well with a couple of Fatal Pushes instead, and maybe a lifelink creature that could also double as a wincon. something like Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn just some suggestions to mix up your cmc a little bit. you have a lot of one drops.

This looks like a great build! I have a some suggestions: I'd run some number of Dead Weight or Gift of Fangs, because it's a removal you can tutor with Heliod's Pilgrim. You can also enchant Tithe Drinker with Gift to give it a buff. Also, during playtesting, I found the deck to have slight difficulties with lands on the early turns. Since you have actively decided not to run Dark Ritual, I'd maybe suggest adding one basic. And one more note: because a lot of mana symbols in the deck are hybrid anyway, maybe i'd cut some tapped duals for just normal basics.

But overall, it seems like a great list! Keep it up)

Originally made this for the card creation challenge, but I like it so much I'll put it here too. An abnormal card, but it can inspire some very fun decks, I think. Use cards like Dead Weight, Pacifism, and Frogify- or go for politics, and group hug. Good fun either way.

Maybe Hateful Eidolon, and maybe Dead Weight as removal that synergizes with spiritdancer?

I don't think this deck wants to be playing discard to trade one for one.
