Hatred Discussion

The first thing that comes to mind for me is Hatred. This can easily take out a player, and plays even better if you have a lifelink creature.

Jet Medallion seems like a great card to have in your deck, since you will probably play several spells a turn.

Black Market seems like it would generate a lot of value for you.

Wound Reflection also seems perfect for finishing off opponents.

In terms of aggressive, powerful creatures, I think you are missing a few key cards that would really make this deck scary.

Phyrexian Obliterator redefines what a good aggressive black card is.

Skirsdag High Priest is very easy to activate in Commander.

Loyal Subordinate represents heaps of damage with your commander out.

Rotting Regisaur is very much worth the discard for his body.

Woe Strider should make its way to the maindeck.

Abyssal Persecutor is excellent and even has great applications for multiplayer.

Demon of Catastrophes can eat up a useless creature in exchange for a 6/6 flying trample.

Doom Whisperer is great value.

Archfiend of Despair is the perfect late game finisher for you.

In terms of cuts, I don't think a lot of your very small creatures will get very far in a game of commander. I would cut the weaker ones like Carrier Thrall, Sanitarium Skeleton, Lazotep Reaver, Priest of the Forgotten Gods, Reassembling Skeleton and Tattered Mummy.

Tyrant's Choice seems like it won't often do what you want it to. I am sure you can find better removal than Defile. Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper also seem a bit underpowered for Commander.

Daedalus19876 thanks for the comments!

Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose - Yes! Probably the card I’m most excited about to come from Core 2021, definitely will slot him in.

Hatred - Can pull off a few unexpected wins with Hatred in hand. My deck currently has managed to be completely modern bordered, I think aesthetically, if it got reprinted, I’d reconsider slotting it in hehe

Barter in Blood - I used to run this actually when I first started with a mono black vampire deck. It is great thematically, it’s just unfortunately probably too weak in comparison to a similarly costed board wipe. Depending on my playgroup, I may slot it back in.

I think that as my curve starts to lower, I could consider cutting a land like you mentioned, but I feel like I’d need more changes to have more ramp and draw at the lower end to compensate. I’d have to do more play testing to know whether it’s still consistent enough. I’ve generally brewed with 37-38 lands, so that’s what I’m used to and comfortable with in general lol

The new Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose seems like he'd fit amazingly here. Hatred is an awesome card with Elenda, since you gain the life back immediately from the lifelink :) Barter in Blood seems very thematic, while also working well! Finally, I'd think you could survive with one less land. You aren't running much recursion/reanimation, though that might be from the lack of vampire themed reanimation...

This was my Elenda deck once upon a time, btw, if it helps at all!

I feel like Hatred is a great card for this deck. I often use the card as player removal. Given how often you have flying and the propensity of lifelink, its very doable. Putting it on a creature with both like Vampire Nighthawk is just wonderful. You had some amazing suggestions for my deck. I figured I would give my input as well. Thank you.

Yea.....I don't think Bond of Agony works the way you think it does. Might have more luck with Hatred.

Really cool list! Plying Greven is so much fun, if you one shot an opponent out of nothing with Hatred and stuff. Sadly he isn't a top tier cEDH commander, but he has so much flavour. But if you really want to play him on a cEDH table you need a bit more interaction:

[email protected]_only That's ok, Hatred was also already taken as a name too.

Ominously enough, the word Compassion isn't even part of the name of any existing card. One could truthfully say that there is no compassion in MtG. :'(

King saproling! Thanks so much for the upvote and suggestions! lets start on the positives, Strata Scythe , Not of This World , Aphotic Wisps , Expedition Map , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief , and Sadistic Glee are all amazing! ill put them into my maybeboard for consideration! they all fit the theme of the deck super well, but the deck is kind of tightly packed as it is, so itll be hard to incorporate them. the other cards are alright in some cases, but the Glaring Spotlight i already have enough anti hexproof with the two lands and shadowspear, Hatred isnt honorable! it one shots my opponent, but then i paid a whole lot of life and i only kill 1 person, so eh. Necrologia for the same reason of paying a lot of life, and then Tsabo's Decree , Wail of the Nim and Manascape Refractor all feel a little underwhelming, but thanks for the suggestions! have a good one!
