Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger from your command zone is the best followup after a Worldfire. If you're going any kind of competitive with it, that's probably the way, using some Mizzix's Mastery +Entomb combination. I'm not sure it's worth the Ad Nauseamrisks, but I have friends who really want to try and make it work.

I would drop the Dark Confidant. I also have been okay without BBE lately (it just doesn't do enough anymore). I think good additions here could be some combination of Seasoned Pyromancer and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger.

I think you could maybe round out the removal suite a little by dropping 1 or 2 Trophies for Heartless Act.

Also, have you considered splashing red? Gives you access to Lightning Bolt, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, and Kolaghan's Command. 4 Scoozes definitely feels overboard so it would let you cut down a bit there. Kroxa + Scooze together would probably strain the manabase some though.

Also I wonder if Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is too much of a stretch. Although not a demon/devil/imp, he technically escaped from the ancient greek version of hell and also is basically death itself

zapyourtumor my friend was playing Soulflayer and he would delve Zetalpa and I simply lost whenever that happened. Grasp of Darkness is a thought, but normally he would have hexproof on it as well. Again, it is there for now but obviously I need to adjust according to whatever the meta may come to.

Murderous Rider was there as a catch all for later games since Fatal Push can't hit anything past 5, but it would be taken out. There may be an adjustment with how many Light Up the Stage s I play, with Murderous Rider and whatnot. Something to think about. Thanks for the thought!

Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is another one that I'm going to play when I can find a foil Japanese Extended art, or have the money to afford it. Another way to help with grindy games.

Honestly, Dreadhorde Butcher is a potential as well. But his ability to just take over games cannot be denied. Plus, he's probably one of my favorite cards in Pioneer. It is RARE that I don't like to see him. He can be a serious clock. However, he isn't as synergetic as some of the other cards.

I'm personally not a big fan of Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger in this deck, or any deck really that doesn't have a consistent way of putting cards in the graveyard e.g Dragon's Rage Channeler . It's also going to be a bit awkward and painful in aggro matchups to get double red in this deck, since you want to both be getting double black to cast both unmarked and persist in the same turn or cast Damn and Lilliana. It also is bad against graveyard hate, which is definitely going to be brought in against you. I also think it's just not really going to be relevant enough times to be worth the awkwardness with the mana and exiling cards from graveyard, Archon of Cruelty is plenty good enough to win games by itself and adding interaction with an opponent to make Archon stick seems better than playing Kroxa.

I think that the Evoke creatures, specifically Grief , aren't that good unless you're doing something that makes them broken e.g Ephemerate or that supports a combo of some kind, like in the new Living End versions with Grief or Crashing Footfalls decks that run Fury as free interaction that cost more than 2. I doubt the number of times Grief takes a crucial piece from an opponent is worth it over getting rid of a combo piece or another piece of interaction.

Ultimately if you're curious about some cards then do some experimenting with them in the deck. It'll be interesting to see what you find.

legendofa and K0rt, I meant to elaborate more:

Do you find that Mass Hysteria obstructs your hand during the mid/late game? That’s why I’m reluctant to run it. I’ve tried running haste enablers in other builds (like Dragon Tempest ) and they seem useful at first, but then I find them to be a hinderance after the early turns.

I am considering sticking in a couple Grief to offset Thoughtseize , to minimize life-loss. Plus it may come in handy to reanimate later. But I don’t have room for Ephemerate , so I don’t know if Grief is worth it without the combo.

All this discarding goes really well with Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger . I’ve been trying to make room for a couple, but I don’t know if Kroxa is a “Non-bo” in this build, since I need to be able to exile the cards in my graveyard to pay for its escape cost, but I also need creatures in my graveyard to reanimate.

I’d like to hear your thoughts!

This definitely looks like a Lurrus of the Dream-Den deck, you only have a single card that doesn't fit the requirements in Liliana of the Veil that can be easily cut and Lurrus is just so good in the midrange and control matchups that adding it seems like a no-brainer.

I have no idea what Manamorphose is doing in this deck. There are no cards that care about instant or sorceries in this list, meaning it's just going to be air most of the time. Even if you don't add Lurrus Mishra's Bauble can at least make Tarmogoyf better and fulfils the role of cheap cantrip better than Manamorphose in this current list.

Dreadhorde Arcanist is another weird inclusion. You only have 11 spells that it can successful flashback in the whole deck, meaning that it is going to be a two-mana 1/3 an awful lot, especially since your going to have graveyard hate boarded in against you already with your Kroxa and Fiend Artisan, maybe some more generic creatures would be better, like Scavenging Ooze or Grim Flayer .

4 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger seems like way too many, especially since you have no dedicated mill effects or even an engine card like Dragon's Rage Channeler to put cards in the graveyard. If you want to go with a graveyard based strategy you should add some powerful enablers like Grisly Salvage as it makes both Fiend Artisan and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger more powerful and consistent.

You might also want some Nurturing Peatland for Wrenn and Six to turn the +1 from it into spells. The 3 basic Forest in this list will almost certainly be awkward with Kroxa more times than you think it will, especially if you have two on the battlefield.
