ClockworkSwordfish on An Old-School Nightmare

11 months ago

I always felt that Slaughter was an underplayed card in EDH, as 4 life to buy it back is a lot less intimidating when you're starting with a whole 40. Dregs of Sorrow is big and clunky, but in a format this slow, it could very well be worthwhile in the lategame.

If you're going for such a graveyard-heavy strategy, though, there's really no bigger recommendation I can make then Tortured Existence! Being able to swap out any creature for whatever you need from a well-stocked graveyard is the closest you can come to Recurring Nightmare in the format. Likewise, Apprentice Necromancer, Doomed Necromancer and Undead Gladiator should have no trouble finding homes in such a build. You might also consider Ashen Powder as a budget way to lift some powerful fatty from your opponent's graveyard if you're at risk of accidentally reanimating it as collateral with Balthor.

Might I suggest for possible board wipes: Dregs of Sorrow, Evincar's Justice good to remove token and machine gun opponents, Last Laugh could be interesting if you include Sanguine Bond, Massacre Girl

Conspiracy (if we can find one cheap enough) would be good with a couple of cards you already have.

Priest of Forgotten Gods could definitely work for some more card draw and disruption. TCG says it's a $1

Grim Harvest is a pretty cool recursion tool - especially with Priest.

Wilt over Naturalize - same cost & effect but you can cycle.

I really like Journey to Eternity  Flip in this deck. It's a little on the expensive side but I think it can generate quite a bit of value.

Thanks for the suggestions! I’m strongly looking at Breakthrough and Dregs of Sorrow I think Consume Spirit isn’t for this deck due to black being my lowest piece of my colour wheel.

Tutors I need to fit but I’m deciding on if I want to add 1 or 2 or more. Going infinite is awesome but I don’t want to easily do it every game as it gets a bit repetitive

Astral Cornucopia, Consume Spirit, Breakthrough, Dregs of Sorrow and Vigor are all I can think to suggest. You have a pretty awesome list already. But I also agree with the tutors idea, if going infinite is a major desire for you.

Skeletal Scrying, Dregs of Sorrow, Damnable Pact, Necrologia are all viable options as long as your life gain is working well.

Patriarch's Bidding,Balthor the Defiled, Finale of Eternity, No Rest for the Wicked, Empty the Catacombs, Twilight's Call can all kinda undo certain board wipes.

White has some counter spells too like Rebuff the Wicked, Mana Tithe, Dawn Charm, Lapse of Certainty, Illumination that could help against removal sometimes.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100:

In your forum topic you said you're not worried about reducing the high avg. CMC by cutting high CMC creatures because you can pay Phyrexian mana to reduce their cost. This is true to some degree, but you're not always in every game going to have Krrik on the battlefield, access to Phyrexian mana, and the times when this happens then having a lower avg. CMC will allow you to actually play Magic.

The other problem is why play worse high CMC creatures then Vilis, Broker of Blood , Pontiff of Blight , Sheoldred, Whispering One or Reiver Demon ? There's no reason to jam a bunch of other high CMC creatures just because you can. These creatures especially the interaction of Vilis, Pontiff with Krrik are better than all the other high CMC creatures who are within the budget here. You would rather draw them then the others therefore make it easier to draw them and don't include lots of other high CMC creatures?

Pontiff of Blight giving extort to all creatures you control is good especially if you're playing a life gain strategy. Extort can be paid for with Phyrexian mana, that's what makes it busted. Each extort trigger can be paid with 2 life, but if you have three opponents you gain 3 life for each trigger, you gain 1 life per opponents who loss life. This means you extort for free and also gain 1 life after each trigger. Even if you only have two opponents you're still getting to extort for free because of Phyrexian mana.


Before you can do anything with Krrik and Phyrexian mana you have to get him on the battlefield and this means getting four mana (colorless or black). First priority for upgrades to consider is adding more early game ramp that's within the budget:

The strength of Krrik is Phyrexian mana, but to take advantage of this you want lots of other one mana cards. When you play Krrik you want to right away start giving him counters:

Cremate, Wisps, Tainted are not usually playable cards, but with Krrik they are because they're free to cast and most draw a card. For one mana or free Symmetry can get you Necropotence into your hand.

Two drops are also good, not as good as one drops, but still good value with Phyrexian mana:

You could fit Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent in here if you wanted by cutting some cards that are by no means as powerful as either because these tutors can get you Necropotence , Bolas's Citadel or Aetherflux Reservoir ; all more impactful cards/game winning cards. Consider cutting these cards to add Demonic/Intent? Most of these cards are high mana cost redundancy which are not needed:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.
