3x3Tails on TERGRID is Mean AF

Killing Wave

With the amount of discarded lands Tergrid has available to her, being able to cast X for 10+ is childs play. With 10 for X, you're almost always guaranteed other's creatures.

Lithelain Some interesting suggestions, the problem with Vengeful Strangler  Flip is that they just sacrifice whatever you put the curse on. Accursed Witch  Flip would work better but she is a bit more expensive at 4 CMC.

Combustible Gearhulk Is interesting but they can be a huge whiff at 6 mana if you hit lands, plus milling can rope you of much needed cards. For instance imagine if you accidently mill your needed board wipe or kill spell, especially if Killing Wave is your board wipe over Choice of Damnations as that would only do 1 damage.

Creeping Chill Would work much better in a self mill deck, something like dredge or surveil.

zapyourtumor Some fantastic suggestions, especially Killing Wave. To go over the list.

Curse of the Cabal Feels to slow and with the prevalence of the cookbook deck, I see this as a blow out against me.

Temporal Extortion I had thought about it, but I was going budget. If I find some spare cash I could certainly see it in the deck.

Killing Wave fantastic and will likely become my go to unless I can get Choice of Damnations for cheap as that hits all permanents instead of just creatures.

Pain's Reward I had thought about it, but it feels like a potential blowout where the opponent could force me to bid too much for needed card draw.

Indulgent Tormentor 5 mana CMC and dies to bolt. That didn't feel right to me. If it was either a bit cheaper or had a higher toughness I would consider it.

Desecration Demon Maybe a possible include if the deck needs more creatures. Against a deck without creatures, or with very few creatures, it could be great. However those types of decks usually run either heavy removal, bounce, or something of the like. Also I kind of want the pressure to be on their life total more than the board state.

As for a legacy deck, my experience in legacy in minimal so I can't comment too much on the meta and whatnot, but it could be fun. Currently I am planning to test a different kind of jank there being Eight-and-a-Half-Tails with a enchantment called Earnest Fellowship to nullify most threats to my creatures and run Rune of Protection: White to protect myself. The deck will run Norn's Annex and Ghostly Prison to deal with creature decks.

DrukenReaps on Unique Commanders

I think I have a few things that might work for you.

This first is Child's Choices. The idea is to be playing only with cards that give opponents choices to make. Everything from good ones like Rhystic Study to meh ones like Killing Wave. I use to run a 60 card deck based around the same thing. This is kind of a side project.

Next up I'm not sure really counts but Beep-Beep Motherfucker. Its a vehical deck which isn't that unique but it is more focused on tapping and untapping things that have abilities like King Macar, the Gold-Cursed and Fallowsage. I dunno if this is all that unique though, I just haven't seen it out in the wild.

Last idea is playing the best color, colorless In all seriousness if your meta doesn't have a colorless commander floating around it needs one! There are all kinds of silly things you can do if you just pay a little more mana than other colors usually have to. Check out my Druken Distortion. Though if you are looking for unique you might build Hope of Ghirapur or Karn, Silver Golem instead. Just watch out for that Vandalblast...

StoryArcher on This (mono-black) deck is SO …

This deck is so much freaking fun to play, especially if you like old-school 'fair' type decks. Just love how interactive it is.

I haven't played much since the pandemic hit (do people actually still play Modern?), so I haven't had a chance to really review the newer sets - can anyone offer suggestions on how the deck can be improved, particularly with regards to the side-board? It's balanced pretty well right now with a smooth-as-silk mana curve.

Keeping in mind the amount of life-gain in this deck, some of the cards I've been tinkering with (to replace Tymaret, Chosen from Death) are a one-of Killing Wave, Collective Brutality, Essence Harvest, Stain the Mind, Dismember and Torment of Hailfire. Creature-wise I'm also thinking a one-of Mogis's Marauder as a sort of timely finisher or a Nightmare Shepherd.

Would Gatekeeper of Malakir be an improvement on Geralf's Messenger here? I feel like between the hand destruction, all the deathtouch and the set of Murderous Rider I don't actually need that much more creature removal, especially if my opponent gets to choose who goes.

I played around with tossing in a couple of Bojuka Bog or Leechridden Swamp but it seems like any lands coming in tapped (especially early) messed with my flow. Thoughts on that?

Regarding sideboard, do I need a better means of dealing with Artifacts or Land? If so, what would you suggest?

Very nice deck! I like that it's a little different from the more standard jund sacrifice lists.

You mentioned you wish you had more card draw: Village Rites might work there. Kolaghan's Command is a nice grindy and versatile removal spell that can also blow up artifacts and let you reuse a creature.

Maybe some Thoughtseize for hand disruption? It's just such a good card in any B deck. Woe Strider could be an additional sac outlet as well.

In the sideboard, Extinction Event seems like a huge nonbo with Zulaport Cutthroat , since you don't even get death triggers. It also exiles all your cats. Wish there was something like Killing Wave in pioneer, that would be dope.
