I am pretty new to working with Wilhelt, but I have made one of my own and was looking at what cards people put into theirs. I liked Grimoire of the Dead and Call to the Grave and may use them in my deck. I was wondering why you have some cards like Dread Shade or Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. They are not zombies nor do they seem to synergize with your deck. Perhaps you could replace them with Gisa and Geralf,Ravenous Rotbelly or something else that synergizes with your deck. Lastly, I noticed you seen to have a decent amount of sacrifice in your deck have you considered adding cards like Dictate of Erebos, Ruthless Deathfang, or Butcher of Malakir. Hope things work out with your deck and that you have fun with it. Wilhelt has been a lot of fun for me so far and I hope you are having fun with it too.

Thanks for the suggestion Brian-123 ! All fantastic suggestions and all cards I have in my binders/ collection and most that I cut, or had out when building, with reasoning.

So this is what I'm thinking:

  1. Both Traumatize and Fleet Swallower are both brutal cards but due to mana cost I held off on them for cheaper options to have more access to spells like Fractured Sanity and Tasha's Hideous Laughter Mill was always more of a way to fill the graveyard while still having mana to play other cards at the same time, mainly just to speed up.

  2. I only have one copy of Painful Quandary and it's currently being used in another deck, but I agree would work in here ... but what to swap for it?

  3. Torment of Hailfire and Exsanguinate are glorious cards, that I use in many decks and have copies to play for this deck but what I feel is the mana production and deck is just not optimized to take full advantage of them correctly at this time, thus they sit for the time being, which leads me to my next point...

  4. Nyx Lotus sat on my table and I stared at it.... stared hard at it, thinking if I could a. Take full advantage of it and b. Want to spend 4 mana to have it come in tapped and risk having a board wipe that makes it a dead rock.

  5. Clone Legion and Trailblazer's Boots are definitely on the radar!

  6. Finally, I have to agree with Grimoire of the Dead being good, but slow and I worry as I work closer to graveyard hate that it might not be as effective.

Wow! Lmao thanks again for everything and for making my brain work.

another mill half your deck card= Traumatize & Fleet Swallower

Painful Quandary= is a nasty card to help force discard and deal 5 damage

Trailblazer's Boots=for unblockable, but I figured Whispersilk Cloak was for the protection

Exsanguinate for some massive damage A must in any commander deck for a big mana rock when you need it Nyx Lotus

Torment of Hailfire is one of my favorite cards

Clone Legion yes i know heavy on the mana but its commander and games stretch. its fun to us if your opponent has a big field, you can copy any field even your own hense helping with tokens

Grimoire of the Dead= i know it might be slow

Azor's Elocutors and maybe even Grimoire of the Dead could be fun cards for this deck. Mikaeus, the Lunarch would also be a nice thing to have in there for the +1/+1 counters.

I'd recommend cutting Tectonic Reformation because I don't think you have enough lands to support it, Grimoire of the Dead because it's super slow, and Shattered Perception Magus of the Wheel and Dragon Mage because you want targeted discard with Feldon, not wheel-like effects. You also have Feldon listed as a commander and a creature, which may be messing with the card total.

hey silverman if you do commander and since you play aggressive i highly recommend my commander elf swarm deck. I got to play it a tournament won 1st place with it and finished the game with 82 HP..now there was a massive re-hall for it cause i got board whipped 4X but recoverd so now the deck has 7 outside win conditions if you get board whipped, things like Torment of Hailfire Hurricane Grimoire of the Dead Strixhaven Stadium to help win the game better now..thats if your looking for commander this populates like crazy too

I hate Grimoire of the Dead people will wait for you to tap this thing till its ready and blow it up before you get to bring them all back. Put a land in its place. 32 lands will leave you screwed on mana way to often. I say this because you have only 1 source of fast mana (Sol Ring). A lot of list that run 32 or less lands make up for it in fast mana like Mana Vault and Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb and many many more. I'd try to get 35 to 36 lands or get your fast mana otherwise you'll find yourself mana screwed a bit to often. If you find that I'm wrong then disregard.

Moving on

Cut Scourge of Nel Toth for Wound Reflection doubling up on the upkeep trigger can win you the game. Also consider Strionic Resonator and Lithoform Engine. Again copying that upkeep trigger is huge and can win you the game. Milling yourself can benefit your greatly. Mesmeric Orb is a fantastic way to do this.

As some examples:

Why does the sideboard exist, and why exactly eleven cards?

Why do you get a legendary permanent of each type? I see this not as a restriction, but as broadening the gap between ultra cards, strong cards, and decent cards. If one person brings Silent Submersible , Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice , Paradox Engine , and Sword of Feast and Famine , having those cards always available is going to leave almost no chance for whatever was cobbled together from Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Radha, Heir of Keld, Grimoire of the Dead , and Demonmail Hauberk . The consistency is incredibly high, and I'm sure a more extreme example could be easily created.

What's the purpose of the baubles and trinkets?

Since there are loss restrictions, a dedicated Stax or Turbo Fog deck could potentially make the whole game virtually unwinnable for anyone. Is this a viable strategy, or should it be discouraged?
