Elvish Doomsayer

Creature — Elf Shaman

When this dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), each opponent discards a card.

Okay so I'm new to deckbuilding, especially for EDH so I'm just wondering if anyone has any useful/practical suggestions for this deck. I thought Abomination of Llanowar was a cool card, so I wanted to build around that concept of getting a lot of elves onto the field and my graveyard to really boost its power and toughness.

One thing I'll mention is that, with the exception of cards that are already present in the deck, I don't want to spend more then $3-5 on a single card. So keeping all of this in mind, any suggestions?

Commander: - Abomination of Llanowar

Planeswalkers: - Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury - Tyvar Kell

Creatures: - Elvish Eulogist - Elvish Archdruid - Imperious Perfect - Lys Alana Huntmaster - Immaculate Magistrate - Marwyn, the Nurturer - Elvish Visionary - Shaman of the Pack - Lathril, Blade of the Elves - Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen - Beast Whisperer - Timberwatch Elf - Elvish Mystic - Canopy Tactician - Poison-Tip Archer - Skemfar Avenger - Skemfar Shadowsage - Wolverine Riders - Ruthless Winnower - Wellwisher - Golgari Findbroker - Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Rhys the Exiled - Nightshade Harvester - Gilt-Leaf Winnower - Elvish Doomsayer - Storrev, Devkarin Lich - Nadier's Nightblade - Fyndhorn Elves - Llanowar Elves

Instants: - Putrefy - Golgari Charm - Murder - Village Rites - Grisly Salvage - Wrap in Vigor - Cast Down - Malakir Rebirth  Flip - Ghastly Demise - Infuse with Vitality

Sorcery: - Cultivate - Rampant Growth - Eyeblight Massacre - Shamanic Revelation - Casualties of War - Dig Up - Victimize - Sign in Blood - Spark Harvest - Diabolic Tutor - Deadly Brew - Bone Shards - Elvish Promenade

Artifacts: - Sol Ring - Arcane Signet - Commander's Sphere

Enchantments: - Elderfang Venom - Moldervine Reclamation - Prowess of the Fair

Lands: - Evolving Wilds - Command Tower - Path of Ancestry - Llanowar Wastes - Jungle Hollow - Skemfar Elderhall - Golgari Guildgate - Tainted Wood - Necroblossom Snarl - Myriad Landscape - Foul Orchard - Darkmoss Bridge - Forest x13 - Swamp x13

Last_Laugh on Which non-partner commanders would you …

To elaborate on my Marchesa + Reyhan, I picture stuff like Verdurous Gearhulk allowing me to abuse any 3 etb/death triggers and itself on EVERY turn instead of once per round. Stuff like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star for life drain, Burglar Rat and Elvish Doomsayer for discard, Grim Haruspex for draw, and god knows what else I could come up with in sans white. That'd be a fun deck to brew...

Elvish Doomsayer, Noxious Toad (oracle text is each opponent), Burglar Rat, Elderfang Disciple, and Liliana's Specter are all 2-3 drops that put in their work already or do when they die.

TheoryCrafter on Any advice? (Extortion)

1 year ago

Unless you're really intent on getting one of each of Liliana and Ob Nixilis on the battlefield just to cast The Elderspell to ult one of them you're better off concentrating on the extort ability.

In order to make it more like an extort deck, you'll need more creatures. Pontiff of Blight will give all your creatures extort. Crypt Ghast will allow for some ramp. Though if Crypt Ghast is too expensive, money wise the next option to consider is Dark Ritual.

Since you have Ayara as a sacrifice engine, creatures that cause your opponent to discard when they die include, but are not limited to, Ashen-Skin Zubera and Elvish Doomsayer. Or you can cast cards such as Liliana's Specter which force discard upon entering the battlefield and sacrifice them, feeding into Blood Artist. All of this should give you some control aspects for the deck.

In which case I'd remove all copies of The Elderspell and the Planeswalkers. The 5/5 demon from Nixilis' 2nd ability and Liliana's reusable discard in her 1st ability are good but Ghastlord of Fuge is unblockable, his ability exiles instead of discard and any creatures attacking you will die anyway once they deal damage due to No Mercy, feeding into Blood Artist. Maybe cut just one copy of GoF for another small creature.

Since the affect on No Mercy is not cumulative, you should be okay to remove one.

Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Spark Double feels like it's a custom card made specifically for Marchesa. It allows you to abuse any etb/death trigger on everyone's turn instead of once per round thanks to that automatic +1+1 counter or it copies Marchesa for double Dethrone.

Vigean Graftmage = 2 free sacs every turn (itself + 1 other). This card is deceptively amazing here. Have Vigean enter first then as the 2nd enters, graft a counter onto it.

Goblin Bombardment is a sac outlet that only 2 colors can reliably deal with and it enables an infinite damage combo with Mikaeus and Glen Elendra.

Burglar Rat, Elderfang Disciple, Elvish Doomsayer, Liliana's Specter, and Noxious Toad (oracle text is each opponent) are all excellent additions to your discard theme.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa to Love Them

On my quest to also build a tinybones deck, I found some of the cards below that have really been an asset to me. Maybe they could help you out too.

Instant Speed Discard Cards: _(Allows you to force them to discard on their turn, so you can get a draw trigger then too.)

The card Elvish Doomsayer from Commander Legends has been added, but it shows up listed as Unknown instead of Creature in decklists.
