nomjas123 on Milling Gone Rogue (Precon Upgrade Guide)[PRIMER]

9 hours ago

VorelNailo Thanks for reaching out!

Mesmeric Orb Mills a lot. Depends on how long it stays on the table, but usually 5-10 per turn triggered at untap, resolved at upkeep. One-time 2 generic mana investment. One of my favorites. Court of Cunning is stronger, as long as you can costitently keep monarch.

Ashiok, Dream Render - maybe less usefull if you don't have too much reanimation in your playgroup. I have a buddy playing Meren and I love going all Ashiok on him. Anyhow, anti-tutor is pretty powerful all around (kills ramp too).

My meta used to be full of boardwipes, so I put together Mulldrotha deck. I brewed with it a little bit and turns out I really liked how milling went, so I decided for that strategy.

If you wanna shift towards reanimation, then I would happily recommend: Havengul Lich - can reanimate your or opponents graves

Sewer Nemesis - can get quite big really fast

Consuming Aberration - as above. If you play a lot of small spells, which you seem to do, it provides good milling too.

Altar of Dementia - Good sac outlet for mill decks. Works amazing with the two above.

Living Death - crazy gamechanger with self-mill and ashiok

Use whatever you like :)

jeh1184: They do have summoning sickness if we Living Death them, but we don't win with combat -- we win through looping Gray Merchant of Asphodel or a couple other options. We win through leveraging enter the battlefield effects, not attacking :)

RambIe on Ad Nauseam Wincons

2 weeks ago

quote - RNR_Gaming "RambIe - you should be building around Ad Nauseam you're not just putting a random 20+ cards in your hand."

quote - gatotempo "Ad Nauseam usually comes down on t3, draws 20-30 cards, and puts of mana rocks into play. I then use a couple of tutors to find Skirge Familiar, then discard a bunch of cards to have ~20 mana. "

im not building a deck.. im trying to provide a solution to a current issue,
you don't have to Ad Nauseam to all 3 peaces of the combo - out of the 20 cards you only need 1 or 2 peaces of the combo and tutors for the rest which is why i'm also suggestion the use of Living Death because now it can be tutored to the grave yard also leaving a lot of redundancy to fetch
even though Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista + Viscera Seer is a three card combo
it only takes two cards to fire off Buried Alive & Living Death

SlayerK113 on Anje Falkenrath

Take a look at Glint-Horn Buccaneer for doing damage when you activate Anje. I always like Living Death as a way to turn a somewhat board wipe into a lot of value and having Flayer of the Hatebound in your graveyard or Warstorm Surge on the field when you do can be a win. Bojuka Bog is a good value land to tie with Living Death to make sure one opponent gets nothing. More optional, but Garna, the Bloodflame can give you a lot more uses with Anje when you flash it out. Lastly, I would recommend switching out some stuff like Footfall Crater and Grimoire of the Dead with random madness cards to fuel Anje and get to your game winners. It's not that these cards don't work in the deck, but they just aren't as impactful.

I designed Anje around a vampire sub theme and really leaned into her madness ability. Here is mine: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/03-01-20-anje-falkenrath/

RedFlag on The Scarab God

3 weeks ago

Liliana's Devotee, Necrotic Hex, Shepherd of Rot, Tormod, the Desecrator, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Dread Summons are cards to consider

Liliana's Standard Bearer and Midnight Reaper as draw engines.

Opposition Agent and Hullbreacher for control.

Tortured Existence and Graf Harvest make an incredible synergy.

Mindslicer and Living Death are a must.

Price of Fame works well with its surveil ability (you can discard creatures in graveyard and use them with your cmd), plus is an excellent removal.

That would be Living Death! And both are a good idea, I'll take them under consideration.

Firstly, I apologize for the late response. I got caught up a bit with schoolwork at the end of last week. I typed out my response a couple of days ago, but I must've managed to only click Preview and not Post. That makes me feel a little silly, hahaha.

I love Geier Reach Sanitarium as a way to discard impactful creatures that have ended up in your hand. On the topic of cards like Library and Arena, there's also other persistent sources of card draw, like Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

Doom Whisperer is really great in this deck. Dumping cards in the yard as you please and its control over those cards really greases the gears of our machine. Regarding Elder Gargaroth, I must admit that I'm primarily running it for the keywords, so I'd definitely recommend getting a Doom Whisperer before the Gargaroth.

I find Acidic Slime to be an all star in my grindy midrange decks running green. There's always a problematic permanent it can get rid of, and in this deck in particular, the Deathtouch is also pretty nice. Angel of Finality is a card I am a little iffy on, to be honest. That being said, I like that it provides some graveyard hate outside of the common Bojuka Bog.

It is true that this deck is lacking in board wipes. The only card that comes close to that is Living Death, which can be unreliable. So far, this hasn't posed too big of a problem. I can usually get some of the most important cards in my graveyard by turn 4-5 and from there threaten with a big lifelink swing. That being said, I should probably try to fit in at least a Toxic Deluge or something.

Regarding utility spells that incidentally get things in your yard, I'll list the first cards that come to mind from the top of my head.

One of the cards that I've wanted to try but haven't found room for is Death's Oasis. The thing keeping it from being super good imo is that you're forced to return a creature to your hand, which can screw you up if you're stacking your graveyard for Kathril. Other cards that are close to being run is Splinterfright and Stitcher's Supplier

Removal: Price of Fame, Mephitic Vapors, Drown in Filth.

Card draw and filtering: Theres a bunch of these, but among my favourites are Gather the Pack, Ransack the Lab and Winding Way.

There's also quite a few Dredge cards that get good mileage in our deck archetype. The heavy hitters imo being Golgari Grave-Troll, Life from the Loam and Golgari Thug.

Are you sure you need 50 creatures? This seems a little overkill ^^ Having a bunch of vampires isn't going to make it if they don't have a big impact, especially late game. With your current list it seems pretty likely to have all creatures and no way to support them. I also always like to have some ways to interact with other decks on the table. Though, there are not many budget options that come to my mind.

Maybe Mortify, Living Death, Oversold Cemetery for utility as well as Silversmote Ghoul, Bloodtracker and Vampiric Rites as card draw.

You can also check out my list here if you want, but it's not quite budget :D I'm still tweaking it but the rough idea stands.
