Glistening Oil

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature Enchanted creature has Infect. At the beginning of your upkeep, put a -1/-1 counter on enchanted creature. When Glistening Oil is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, return Glistening Oil to its owner's hand.

CardTyrant,

I remember when companion was first introduced Lutri, the Spellchaser was the topic of conversation - not companion itself which is a shame. I find the mechanic fairly "meh" as you can only place the companion into your hand once, and most of if not all of the companions aren't necessarily going to turn the tide of a game - if I recall correctly. I'd suggest you reconsider Kaheera, the Orphanguard and companion altogether as it's just a "win more" card/mechanic, also your commander already has Vigilance.

I too am enamored with Tyrranax Rex, it's essentially Phyrexia's answer to Questing Beast that happens to be a badass Dinosaur as well. I intend on getting a copy and putting in one of my own decks as well, but it's very much dedicated to Poison counters and proliferation. I suggest you try and include Poison as a subtheme - Triumph of the Hordes is a start, but also include the recently spoiled/leaked? Tyrranax Alpha: a Phyrexian Dinosaur with haste and Toxic 3 for printed at common. Also there's Grafted Exoskeleton and the recently spoiled Prosthetic Injector as well. Will your Dinos be covering their victims in Glistening Oil, or will it simply be some more of that strange oil?

TypicalTimmy, it's from the Mirrodin Besieged block. Melira, Sylvok Outcast has the ability to remove Glistening Oil from the infected. As you said, if it fully corrupts the heart its incurable. Venser, the Sojourner was suffering from Phthisis(powerstone radiation poisoning) and knew he didn't have much longer to live. So he gave his spark to Karn and the spark flushed the oil from his body. That's how Karn Liberated was cured.

As for Nicol Bolas, his memory isn't erased. Jace Beleren created an illusion where he showed Nicol exploding and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon just took his name in such a way he cannot be summoned. Thus, his home is now a Prison Realm.

Might I suggest Syrix, Carrier of the Flame? It's a super-weird commander that simply durdles turns away, but neatly combines aristocrat-, discard- and die/leave grave strategies. And nobody sees coming how ridonkulous Skyfire Phoenix is in there. Oh, and infect is totally doable. Just put Glistening Oil or anyof the other infect-granting effects on Sy or one of yourpingers. In case you're interested, there's a Syrix list on my profile. The list hasb't been updated for a little while, but you get the basic ideas.

Skullbriar is the commander so you can have it relocate to your command zone should he die/be exile/return to hand. The only place that makes his counters dissapear is hand and library.

Dragonscale Boon instant 2 +1counters untap. Can create suprise blocker. Evolution Sage land etb proliferate which is choose any number of things add an additional counter of whatever they have.

Smell Fear new removal option.

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan highly suggest this. Turns anything into a threat with your commander dying.

Solidarity of Heroes double counters for a potential Instant speed kill out of no where.

Biogenic Upgrade double counters after adding 3.

Branching Evolution counters doubler

Heroic Intervention protection

Fight Rigging free spell + counter per turn.

Hydra's Growth double counters

Primordial Hydra 2ndary threat if left alone. Synergies well.

Realizing now I didn't suggest any evasion. Some sort of evasion could go a long way. Trailblazer's Boots is the best example. Can't be blocked if your opponent has a nonbasic land. Essentially unblockable every time.

Evil idea

Tainted Strike infect kill someone. Can target opponents creatures too to surprise both and kill someone.

Glistening Oil infect.

Phyresis infect.

fuzzyhorns so Bloodchief Ascension and mincrank are alright but actually dilute from the main theme of the deck. Put in Tainted Strike, the newly reprinted Imperial Seal, Howling Mine, and Glistening Oil before the combo above. Nekusar really doesn't need technical combos. He just straight up wins. Give him infect and play a wheel and it's game especially if you can use Doublecast or Fork and duplicate the spell. Not that hard to tutor up and do with Grixis control. Here's one of my Nekusar decks:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/nekusar-grixis-control-edh-7/

I'm going to add Imperial Seal This one is nasty. My playgroup hates it.

freezerboy, Hatred is a bit pricey for me, Howl from Beyond will have to do I guess.

I'll look into Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper, and I am just trying to keep my mana to as few utility as possible.

Glistening Oil I actually have been avoiding. I might actually need to do some testing with it though.

Also there are these unblockable options too:

Dauthi Embrace

Access Tunnel

Rogue's Passage

Dauthi Trapper

If you wanted a recurring way to infect your commander, Glistening Oil could be a good option

Spirits, Hatred comes in play quite often to take someone out and is used as a check for our playgroup since so many of them know I run it. Makes them sweat when they have less life than me.

Phyrexian Tower is usually used as a save against exile as well as a second black mana when absolutely needed. Mainly as a fallback. Same to save Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow if I want to drop her back into the command zone, though it isn't an abuseable mechanic.

For the higher cost infect options, as you know, these decks really need a low cmc for most spells to stay flexible. Glistening Oil seems interesting though since I get return to hand option. I'll check that one out since I'm always looking to get more infect options.
