With how much discard you're running, I thought I'd suggest Megrim Liliana's Caress and Fell Specter so you can bleed your opponent to death. Works great with Dark Deal which is already in your build.

Hey buddy,

I've got a couple of ideas for your build. Megrim and Liliana's Caress for bleed whenever they discard. Mind Slash for a sac outlet for Mindslicer and you choose what they discard for 1 black and Geth's Grimoire so you draw off their discard.

I guess it would/ could be considered win more, I think that i'm utilizing Memory Jar for Tergrid and in the deck itself presents both the best card draw and theft effect, I guess I was just considering how to win with it at that point when in reality Tergrid wins through resource theft and denial so yeah I think I could skip over the megrim effects until further notice. also totally forgot about Liliana's Caress , simply a cheaper Megrim good looks on that curve, also forgot about Sangromancer more bang for the buck, you're right.

Have you considered any combination of Fell Specter , Liliana's Caress , Raiders' Wake ? While all of these have the same function as Megrim, Liliana's Caress comes in at 1 mana less; Raiders' Wake may come in 1 mana more than Megrim, but can force multiple discards; and Fell Specter is also a creature.

If your looking for lifegain, Sangromancer could be a boost for Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

Also, Syr Konrad, the Grim allows for a damage boost. I used it in a Commander game with Mindcrank and shut down a lot of my opponent's spells through milling.

Happy Hunting!

I am only saying this because you mentioned this is your first Commander deck: going down the infinite combo route and playing this many tutors will result in very similar games for you. If consistency is your focus that can be a good thing, but if it is your only deck it can get repetitive fast.

I would lose some single effect cards like Hymn to Tourach or Lapse of Certainty and select cards with recurring effects like Court of Ambition and Liliana's Caress.

Fate Unraveler is a walking Underwold Dreams. Rackling is a living version of The Rack.

In most cases, Memory Jar makes all your opponents draw 7 and discard 7 cards when you trigger it. That can be a win for you with the right setup.. I second Bloodchief Ascension as mentioned above, with or without Mindcrank.

Consider adding either Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver. You may want to Invest some space for spot removal like Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking or Despark. As for mass removal, you may find Winds of Abandon more satisfying than Fumigate if you have a board.

Try Children of Korlis with Necropotence and your Commander or Enduring Renewal.You can add recursion that fits your mechanic with Luminous Broodmoth.

Finally, I think you would like Sangromancer. I do.

Hope you find something useful, welcome to the Commander format!

the_solitaire on First ever EDH deck... help?

I am really a 60 card deck kind of person, but the group I play with favors 100 card commander deck games.

In the past few days I tried to catch up with the current game (been out for 20 years) and tried to jumble together a few theoretical decks, trying to get to know some of the new cards. With some of that done, I now try to construct a 100 card singleton deck (look here: First attempt BW)

By all means, I tried to set a theme: Discard through spectres and assisting sorceries), then threw in some cards that have some kind of synergy with discarding Megrim Liliana's Caress The Rack

That left me with pretty much (after adding lands) a 60'ish card deck.

So here we go out on a limb. I added white. To get access to Wrath of God and Mageta the Lion as well as an additional tutor card.

I am not yet convinced that this wil lever work, so before I go out and buy a load of cards, maybe someone here would be kind enough to have a look at this jumble of cards and help me make some sense of it.

One drawback of Treacherous Blessing is that you can't gift it. I am sure you have not gotten to the lands, but when you do I would suggest Rogue's Passage, as well as a few more lands. I would also suggest Liliana's Caress
