Greven, Predator Captain

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Human Warrior


Greven, Predator Captain gets +X/+0, where X is the amount of life you've lost this turn.

Whenever Greven attacks, you may sacrifice another creature. If you do, you draw cards equal to that creature's power and out lose life equal to that creature's toughness.

Pact weapon would go pretty well with Greven, Predator Captain.

For all of them, maybe Dina, Soul Steeper? Golgari lifegain so you can offset the life costs, and a built in sac outlet for Junji.

There's also Lathril, Blade of the Elves who is a classic, built in evasion and makes lots of tokens you can equip.

Zaxara, the Exemplary makes pre-modified creatures

Finally, another card you might like here is Unspeakable Symbol

Probably Ziatora, though I wished for more creativity for my beloved .. There are some ways you can go still, I would consider high payoffs for big-dick (power) creatures. Things like draw = power, ramp = power, Greven, Predator Captain & go with all the self-growing things in the 99 like Forgotten Ancient, Managorger Hydra or Malignus type things. Then, you have a solid 99 that can function on its' own but ziatora can be a finisher stapled on your commander without having to go combo finisher.

I have seen Greven, Predator Captain decks that can do a ton of commander damage at a time, but haven't played it myself, so don't know a ton about it. Though, I imagine with stuff like Necropotence or Toxic Deluge or K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth it could be nuts. May just need things like Shadowspear to keep you alive. And you could maybe even run Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Maskwood Nexus combo because Sorin looks generally all kinds of alright in Greven.

Meh, it could be good. Would be a bit of a different damage style deck, for sure : )

Malignus can be huge. Phyrexian Processor can be a repeatable source of huge Minion tokens. Yurlok's mana burn can enable Greven, Predator Captain's power pump and when it attacks can be lots card draw.

DrukenReaps on How do you create card-draw …

I'd be careful about having too much card draw that is reliant on your deck working. Having draw that just draws because it draws is often going to turn a game from not going well to being a little better.

In that vein I recommend Endless Atlas , Necropotence , Greed , Phyrexian Arena

To be more on theme the following work well Theater of Horrors , Stromkirk Occultist , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion , Azra Oddsmaker , Anje's Ravager , Greven, Predator Captain

Take a look at a similar but more established commander for ideas too Kardur, Doomscourge

And there might be better options here than what I listed as I was mostly looking through my madness deck for some things to fit your needs Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant

I generally recommend around 15 card advantage total but you can go significantly lighter when your commander draws.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Also Greven, Predator Captain might have a place here as both a large beater and a way to generate card advantage.
