Exsanguinate Discussion

One thing I might take out is Aetherflux Reservoir since it is the only source of life gain other than Exsanguinate, and your game plan dosen't seem to be all that focused on it.

A couple Add-ins would be, Fraying Sanity or Psychic Corrosion.

35 lands is also a lot, I suggest switching some of those out for another wheel effect such as Magus of the Wheel, or some more removal.

One last suggestion is to change out Mystic Remora for Rhystic Study

CannibalOranges on Zaxara's Xcellent Hydras

This deck is focused all around Zaxara, the Exemplary's triggered ability. Thus, maximizing X spells wherever possible.

Zaxara is an amazing commander that boasts not only an amazing triggered ability, but also the ability to tap for two mana. Using cards like Freed from the Real turn him into an infinite source of mana. Fortunately, since the deck is loaded with X spells, and hopefully enough card draw, there is no lack of ways to use that mana. Combine with Exsanguinate or Villainous Wealth to auto-win if not nearly so.

This is a deck I own in paper magic as well as play with Tabletop Simulator. I say this because you may feel that this deck is lacking a few specific cards that would really help this decklist, but I assure you those cards are not in here only because they were too expensive for me to purchase. Otherwise I'd add them. Doubling Season is a prime example. I made choices based upon card synergy with Zaxara, card power, and last but not least (in fact, most importantly) card cost. Already this deck cost nearly $200.00, but it could easily have cost far more. Please keep this in mind as you comment. If you have cards you suggest to add, consider how much that card would cost to add before (or while) you suggest it, as otherwise your commentary will not help with the building of this deck.

Thank you.

Hello Hayzay! I was playtesting your deck and I have some suggestions! Altar of Dementia a/o Exsanguinate a/o Torment of Hailfire to finish off your opponents!

Exsanguinate is a monster of a card with infinite mana.

Hoobynobber7395 actually for the simic ascendency win, you just need it and an X spell. Hydra token enters, counters are placed on it, thus triggering simic ascendency.

I'd also like to say, Pemmin's Aura is strictly better than freed from the real but both should be included. If you want an instant win, instead of single opponent eliminations, use Torment of Hailfire, Mind Grind, and Exsanguinate.

Hi Deadpoo111, Essence Harvest is a card I want too put but not sure what to take out, I was considering taking out Exsanguinate but not sure yet. As for the Obsidian Battle-Axe, i overlooked that one at first glance, Might replace Swiftfoot Boots the free equip might be better in the long run dispite how good the boots are.

What do you think I should tack out for Essence Harvest?
