Dead Weight Discussion

zapyourtumor on Feels good to be Delirious (Modern)

I don't think Beast Within is enough of a reason to go into modern. I suggest going into pioneer. Dead Weight and Witherbloom Command are nice delirium enablers in GB colors. 4x Thoughtseize is also probably a good idea. And the manabase could be improved with Blooming Marsh, Overgrown Tomb, and Woodland Cemetery.

If you really want to keep the deck in modern, you should definitely add Dragon's Rage Channeler, Unholy Heat, Tarmogoyf, and Mishra's Bauble.

TriusMalarky on Should Drannith Magistrate be Banned …

Drannith was printed largely to fight companions, the commander angle was an incidental plus.

Here's the thing. It dies to Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , Rapid Hybridization , Pongify , Ulcerate , Fatal Push , every wrath, doomblade effect, Oring effect . . . honestly, it doesn't die to Shock , Dead Weight and Gut Shot . It's so easy to kill it's not even funny.

And it doesn't do anything if it immediately gets killed. Hullbreacher was flashed in in response to a wheel, which would mean that the Breacher owner's hand is full, and they have 20ish treasures, and everyone else gets nothing. It has to get answered immediately or else it provides tons of value. Drannith can honestly be answered at the table's leisure, it doesn't provide any value until somebody wants to cast their commander. That is outside of hardlocks, of course.

It's annoying, yes, but unless someone wants to Knowledge Pool lock, and that's really only acceptable in cEDH, it's not a problem. If your deck can't function without your commander, you need to rebuild. If you can't draw a removal spell, run more removal or more card draw.

Weird_Frisbee So, I’ve also seen a few people throwing in copies of Hateful Eidolon with Dead Weight , Mire's Grasp and Withercrown as a way to produce a card draw and destroy/control creature mix. Seems like a good idea in theory.

TriusMalarky on Black & Blue Graveyard Mill

I think you'd be better off going far away from mill.

A lot of newer players make the mistake of thinking "wow, it's a way to win that denies my opponent resources". It's not. It's a way to win that actually gives most of your opponents resources.

Even if you're playing casual, if your friend has their own Gravepurge then you just gave them a huge advantage.

However, there's another archetype that you definitely have some of the cards for and the rest is cheap: blue black control.

Try this basic list:

Then add in your Dragonlord and that Liliana as well as some other big fun blue/black cards that win. Not the Abberations tho. The Necromasters will do fine.

Then, I recommend picking up some better untapped fixing and replacing those Refuges with River of Tears.

That list should cost you about $30. I've included budget options for the cards that may be more expensive, but if possible use the first in each line rather than the second.

I think you'll like that list a lot more, and do pretty well with it. With some slight tweaks(mostly replacing Preordain and Ponder with Opt and Serum Visions), it'd be playable in Modern, and, if you're skilled enough, you should be able to pick up some wins and do fairly well.

But that's just me -- if you don't like that direction, that's fine. Mill can be pretty fun sometimes.

I would definitely recommend playing Lurrus of the Dream-Den here, especially since you already meet the requirements and it will only set you back around $5. You can get some crazy value out of recurring auras like Mire's Grasp or Dead Weight with Hateful Eidolon or just keep recurring your own stuff like Knight of the Ebon Legion and swing for the win. Alternatively, you could run Obosh, the Preypiercer, but I don't really see him fitting in too well here. I would recommend putting in two more Castle Locthwain if your can afford it, and Serrated Scorpion is better than Vampire of the Dire Moon IMO, especially with Lurrus.

Titus7007 on Hate On 'Em, Eidolonem

my recommendation would be to make Lurrus a 4 or 3x in the deck and don't bind yourself to his companion conditions. Call of the Death-Dweller and Murderous Rider and Demonic Embrace are then cards to consider.

Either way, I think Mogis's Favor /Sentinel's Eyes Indomitable Will / Pacifism / Trapped in the Tower / Grim Physician / Malevolent Noble / Witch's Oven are all candidates for the chopping block.

For creature control 4x Dead Weight and 4x Mire's Grasp + either Heartless Act or Murderous Rider should be all you need. I play a lot of Hateful Eidolon and getting the payoff with those enchantments is huge. So it's best to keep a heavy focus on that.

Hi I would put 2 Dead Weights at least. Banishing light is great but may be too much for a 22 lands card deck

Maybe Dead Weight? And others of its kind in the family of enchants-that-kill. And, if you do end up doing that, try out Hateful Eidolon.
