Thanks, Profet93!

Yeah, its biggest strength is definitely card advantage. I like to build my decks without most fast mana, sadly this deck has a sol ring, but oh well. With that said, an early engine piece in this deck that lets it start generating value early turn 2 or 3 is great.

The combos mostly revolve around reducing life totals. Sometimes rare, but against life gain decks it shines because it can make players life total a number, instead of merely doing damage or draining life. Hitting a Necropotence into a Repay in Kind and having a Leechridden Swamp out is awesome, which ironically was the first win it got at my local pub game, and a win con I hadn't even thought about until I saw it in my hand.

The deck was built to sit around and create value, while draining life, until I can go for a Triskaidekaphobia + Tree of Perdition. But Tree also works with Sorin the Mirthless but rare that could happen, but it totally could, especially if Sorin gets out there turn 2.

The creatures have some swinging power, clearly especially, Phyrexian Obliterator.

I hear everyone's critique on Sever the Bloodline. I want to point out, it is only 4 mana, and I can play it twice, it has great utility because of the token removal, people do not expect it at all, and exiles in stead of destroys, which I love. I don't mind the sorcery speed. This deck can generate so much card advantage that if I have to pitch it, it's still available from the yard, and it can sit in my hand until I need it because my hand size is usually 7+.

However, Spine of Ish Sah is excellent in my deck because of Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor's ability. It's "creature or artifact" so I can just keep recurring the Spine, and drawing.

Cheers, M

Very cool deck. I'm working on one myself. Might I suggest the card Plumb the Forbidden? It helps keep your thrull count low.

Also what ate your thoughts on Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor?

I like the theme of cutting people's life totals in half or bringing them to a certain number. I think it would work well, but there's a few that I feel like could be swapped for more situational cards that might benefit you.

Leaden Myr is nice ramp that's also a creature, but you have a ton of token creation already. Why not have that be a Mind Stone or some other one/two cost ramping artifact?

Even though you're running Tree of Perdition, I'm still not sold on the incremental life loss that Triskaidekaphobia offers. It seems like a neat trick to pull it off, but I'd rather go for consistency when you already have a lot of cards that cut their life total in half. Perhaps Bontu's Monument? Over 1/3rd of your deck are creatures and the life loss AND the cost reduction to your creatures/Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor seems pretty solid.

Lastly, I'd just swap Skeletal Vampire for Grave Titan. I've never had good experiences with Skeletal Vampire in that it's usually targeted for the possible creature generation, whereas Grave Titan is a better body, better defensively, and can net an equally large amount of tokens.

A lot of the boring stuff, actually -- Riftwing Cloudskate, Ravenous Chupacabra, etc. Just cards that are cool but not quite good enough for, say, Modern.

I'm really enjoying Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor and Fain, the Broker in my cube as part of my artifact-aristocrat theme. They make Ichor Wellspring and Mycosynth Wellspring pretty good. Pair with Oswald Fiddlebender and a couple other tools like Servo Schematic, Implement of Malice, and the all-powerful Deadly Dispute for ALL THE ARTIFACT VALUE!!

I'm looking to make a more competitive Pauper EDH deck. I decided on mono-Black Aristocrats strategy. I wanted to make something that would be viable in Pauper and at a normal table so I went with Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor as it's an uncommon legendary. What do you guys think? Anything fun you could think of?

I never understood the purpose of Piper. Let's say I drafted a total of seven Commanders with Partner, not including Piper. Then, let's add Piper in as an 8th draft. And I'm going to literally pick seven at random. HERE WE GOOOO

In this case, I didn't draft a single Commander, so if I desperately wanted to play , I could run Piper, I suppose. However, why would I intentionally nerf myself when I can run so many other options?

For example, you don't need a Pirate-tribal deck to run Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator. You only need 1 Pirate (Your Commander) to deal damage. As long as you deal damage with at minimum 1 Pirate, you get the trigger which then looks at who all was dealt damage. For example, running with Tana, the Bloodsower could yield a Temur Stompy deck that ramps relatively hard. And technically it isn't combat damage you need, just any sort of damage.

You could run Dimir Artifact Salvage if you drafted a handful of synergy for use between Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept.

Obvious Alena, Kessig Trapper and Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood if you drafted bombs.

Esior, Wardwing Familiar and Alena, Kessig Trapper for some huge spells.

Literally a ton of options. Why would anyone intentionally nerf themselves playing Piper and losing out on some strong synergy between abilities? It literally makes zero sense to me. And if the excuse is that you drafted a few white cards but no white Commanders but you REALLY want to play white, then you need to reassess your situation because it ain't gonna happen.

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.
