Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Praetor


At the beginning of your end step, draw seven cards.

Each opponent's maximum hand size is reduced by seven.

Triton: Thank you for the suggestions! I'm absolutely going to need to find Tortured Existence as I like that option significantly more than Phyrexian Reclamation for this deck. Much more on theme.

I thought about Anje Falkenrath, but I don't believe there is quite enough madness to justify it. Could be wrong though.

Monastery Siege is an interesting idea that I haven't considered, but one goal I had was to keep the enchantments and artifacts to a minimum since there is no reasonable way to recur them.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is 100% an inclusion for the deck, but I don't have one and it's expensive. Also very mean like you said. Still on the radar regardless though.

That reanimation package is all great options as well, but I don't currently have any of them. Might have to keep an eye out to see if I can pick them up sometime though.

Love the deck! It's refreshing seeing a Kess deck that isn't just a sweaty spell slinger deck! :p

I got a couple really cool suggestions for you as well!

Tortured Existence: I absolutely love this card in my Mimeo deck, and I think your deck can abuse it even more!

Anje Falkenrath: Very good card in a Madness-heavy deck

Monastery Siege: Both modes are super useful, but I'd imagine you'd want the Phyrexian Arena effect more often than not

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur: If you wanna be mean hehehe

The cheap reanimation spell package: Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Reanimate, and Necromancy. They're quite spendy nowadays, but oh-so-good

I noticed that there aren't many mana rocks, I'd definitely recommend the 2-CMC Talismans and Signets if you need them!

Great deck, Waste Not, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Rite of Replication will fit in pretty good as well.

Once upon a time, I had a Kami of the Crescent Moon deck that utilized Psychosis Crawler as a win condition.

I thought that also having Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would help ensure my victory but I usually never got enough mana or felt comfortable enough casting it, so I ended up selling the card and ultimately scrapping the deck.

You could try Proteus Staff to find really powerful creatures to replace Drakes. You'd probably want something spicier than Baral, I'm trying out Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur in a cEDH Talrand deck with Staff to cheat it out. I also like Sphinx of the Second Sun, which can give you an untap to hold up mana for instant speed use while still allowing full value at sorcery speed. If you only use a couple creatures (or even 1), Proteus Staff turns into a tutor, since you can reorder your deck with it by sacrificing a Drake.

Etrata, the Silencer, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur do nothing for mill and have no synergy with the rest of the deck. Nyxathid is based on opponent hand size & only Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur had any bearing on that. Lazav, the Multifarious only effects cards in your own graveyard and is legendary. Lastly, Xanathar, Guild Kingpin is cute, but has no synergy with other cards.

Jettison those and replace the ten creatures. Four Ruin Crab. Four Hedron Crab. Maybe a couple Maddening Cacophony.

Not sure how useful having single Cancel and Thought Collapse are. Memory Plunder would make better use of those non-creature spells that get milled.
