Hellizha on Playing with death

Salut le gros!

Tel que promis, voici ma review:

1st LES LANDS
Selon mon point de vue, je trouve que tu as trop de lands tapped dans la liste, perso je coupe :

Nul besoin de t"expliquer que le plus important c"est le mana base, avoir des lands qui te donne tes 3 couleurs est selon moi, beaucoup plus important que d"avoir une land tel que Ancient Tomb , aussi tu aura besoin de utility lands pour ta synergy. Voila pourquoi je te suggere :

2nd, MANA
- Avoir 3 couleurs demande une attention supplémentaire a tes mana rocks et ton ramps, Chromatic Lantern et Solemn Simulacrum semblent important ici. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach

3rd, COMBO/WINCON
Je vois 2 solutions ici qui sont facilement exploitable :

  • Shadowborn Apostle
    C"est une creature qui coute pas grand chose, facile a ramener du grave et qui combo avec plusieurs demons different et aussitot que nimporte quel creature meurt ton commander trigger pour un max de token.

  • Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
    Aussi cte dude la! Imagine sa double TOUT tes death trigger a cause du undying, double aussi tout les tokens, que tu pourrai aussi vouloir doubler encore plus avec des cartes comme Parallel Lives , Doubling Season et cie.

SACTOOL
- Autre que les Altars Goblin Bombardment , Sidisi, Undead Vizier , God-Eternal Bontu .

I would swap Coldsteel Heart out for Arcum's Astrolabe to help with the fixing, then get rid of both of your two color snow lands for cheap you could get Game Trail and Foreboding Ruins which will get you the right mana on time, hopefully. On a similar note, you might consider Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse for lands as once in the graveyard they can help you cast Tombstalker . I also think your deck should be called "More for Less" which would make more sense for the theme you're going after.

I think you have too many shocklands. For the non-budget version, you'd want 8 of those to be fetchlands, and only about 4 shocklands.

Since budget is a concern, consider other lands, like Dragonskull Summit , Foreboding Ruins , Swiftwater Cliffs , Spirebluff Canal , just for an example of other land cycles that'll be easier on your life total.

If you have to the funds to get more Rakdos dual lands than just Dragonskull then I think Munitions Expert is a good reason to play Rakdos over Mono Red. Unearth can also be powerful with Goblins. Duress is a good budget sideboard card.

4x Dragonskull is not enough dual lands to play black with Goblins. You'll want minimum 12x Rakdos dual lands to consistently play Munitions Expert. Some budget options are Foreboding Ruins , Unclaimed Territory , some Smoldering Marsh .

Example budget manabase:

  • 4x Dragonskull
  • 4x Ruins
  • 2x Territory
  • 2x Marsh
  • 1x Swamp
  • 9x Mountain

This is by no means an ideal manabase, but it's budget. If on a low budget and can't afford all these Rakdos dual lands then Mono Red is the better option. Just play Mountains, don't have to worry about getting dual lands. Can instead use those funds for more higher priced Goblins such as Goblin Piledriver .

Hey, there's a lot of hype around Anje and for good reason, but Chainer, Nightmare Adept is also excellent from the precon especially with Magus of the Wheel . Given the current budget I don't think trying to make your deck a cEDH version is in your best interest especially because of the manabase with 30 basic lands.

There's lot of good cards here, but the manabase isn't comparable. Consider adding some Rakdos lands? At least add the budget ones?

PaneledSmile40 makes a good point about adding cards that can let you play Anje quicker, even turn two. I think all his/her budget card suggestions for this are good and can replace the additional mana sources here especially the Diamonds, Grafstone and Chalice.

Glint-Horn Buccaneer can be a backup plan with Library of Leng . This two card combo with Anje and any madness card such as Fiery Temper can kill all your opponents with damage from Buccaneer. Buccaneer even without Leng is a good card with a repeatable discard source. Leng is a may ability which means you can still discard cards to your graveyard if you choose to, but having the option to put the card you discard on top of your library can be powerful.

Anje is a good reanimation enabler. You already know this because there's many reanimation spells here and you need reanimation for the Worldgorger combo. Consider adding more reanimation Apprentice Necromancer , Buried Alive and Rune-Scarred Demon ? Demon is a creature you can reanimate to tutor for other cards.

Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck, seems strong, the only problem I see regards the lands. I would consider adding some of the following cards: Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Canyon Slough , Graven Cairns , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , and maybe Sulfurous Springs ! If you find this helpful, please consider upvoting my deck, A Deal With the Devil EDH! Hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a nice day!

Nice Deck, Vampires are a good choice for a tribal deck! I only have a few suggestions, but even then they are sort of smaller less important things. First off, add some more tribal cards: Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Patron of the Vein , Rakish Heir , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , Indulgent Aristocrat , and maybe Blade of the Bloodchief . However, Modern isn't the best tribal format. I would recommend switching your format to Legacy, which would allow the following great vampire cards: Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Urza's Incubator , Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , Sanctum Seeker , Legion Lieutenant , etc. You could also add Bloodstained Mire , Smoldering Marsh , Dragonskull Summit , Canyon Slough , Blackcleave Cliffs , and maybe Foreboding Ruins . But nonetheless, most of these aren't legal in modern (Which is the Format your deck is in as of now) so I would recommend switching. If you find these cards and suggestions helpful, please upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH. Thanks, hope these help, and have a nice day.

Nice Deck, Mishra is a cool commander! The only suggestion I have regards the lands. Lands are my favorite part of magic as weird as that seems, so I am very specific about them. If I were you I would consider the following types of lands: Fast Lands, Reveal Lands, Filter lands, Shock Lands, Battle Lands, Check Lands, and Fetch lands: These types include but are not limited to the following cards: Darkslick Shores , Choked Estuary , Sunken Hollow , Polluted Delta , Sunken Ruins , Blood Crypt , Dragonskull Summit , Bloodstained Mire , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , Graven Cairns , Steam Vents , Sulfur Falls , Spirebluff Canal , Fiery Islet , Cascade Bluffs , and Scalding Tarn . If you end up finding any of these lands helpful, I would appreciate if you upvote and support my commander deck: A Deal with the Devil! Thanks, good luck on your deck, and hope these cards help!
