Kaervek the Merciless Discussion

I have replaced Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts with Vona, Butcher of Magan , who is better suited for the theme of this deck, and Kaervek the Merciless with Blazing Specter , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.47 to 4.37, which is definitely very impressive.

He is an interesting one. The style of deck generally played with him is called group slug and it is best summed up by Manabarbs . Most of the deck hurts everyone, even you. It is a strategy less about winning and more about just doing anything to keep the game moving forward. Every little thing everyone does will hurt them. It is spectacularly hilarious. My Divine Decree is a variation on it but having a god that almost can't be removed in the command zone is great too.
Some of the best creatures with this strategy are Dire Fleet Ravager , Rampaging Ferocidon , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Heartless Hidetsugu , Kaervek the Merciless , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , and Harsh Mentor .

Netherborn Phalanx is kinda like what you are looking for, Poisonbelly Ogre isn't great but it does that thing. There's Massacre Wurm for some creature pain. That all I found in black. But if you are just trying to hurt your opponents for playing creatures? There's Kaervek the Merciless , he is really good at that. There's other ways to hurt you opponents. Like Polluted Bonds or Painful Quandary . There is lots of ways to create the pain train, if you need help building that deck , I'm your guy. Just tag me in the deck you start to build or are already building and I'll lend my hand.

Vial Smasher the Fierce would be a fun commander to play. His ability is random, which is fun and can deter some hate you might get from him, and his partner mechanic allows you to choose all kinds of different ways to go with him. Another card I see pop into Vial Smasher decks is Kaervek the Merciless . If you played him with Thrasios, Triton Hero , you get some nice card draw, and two great colors that ramp and draw cards. If you go with Akiri, Line-Slinger you can get some artifact themes going. Ravos, Soultender give some graveyard value. All kinds of ways to go.

I would do Rakdos as your Commander and slip the other three in as support.

Nice idea for a deck I'm trying to build myself. I'm personally focusing more on
and some +1/+1 counter synergy. For this reason I would try
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
And I'm not seeing one of the best Shamans out there: Kaervek the Merciless .
By the way good work, keep it on!
