S1ayerMonkey on K'rrik's devotion to storms

1 week ago

You don't have nearly enough low-cmc spells for a storm deck, and your curve is way off. Storm relies on playing as many spells as possible in a turn and then having a payoff card. In your case that's either Tendrils of Corruption and Aetherflux Reservoir .

Consider finding a way to increase your mana by adding in Cabal Coffers or, if on a budget, Magus of the Coffers + Umbral Mantle . I know Kerrick basically lets you use life instead, but you need a fallback because he's usually target #1 when on the battlefield. Also, the less life you pay, the more spells you can cast with said life. Include mana increasing spells too, like Bubbling Muck and Rain of Filth , for when you storm off, Kerrick or no.

I suggest getting your cmc around 2.00 by increasing your instant and sorcery count. I see you trying to go the devotion rout too, so try cutting out a chunk of those artifacts and putting in some good, low-cmc creatures and enchantments that will both help you with your strategy and be useful when storming off.

Here is a decent one I found here on T/O (not mine):

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100:

In your forum topic you said you're not worried about reducing the high avg. CMC by cutting high CMC creatures because you can pay Phyrexian mana to reduce their cost. This is true to some degree, but you're not always in every game going to have Krrik on the battlefield, access to Phyrexian mana, and the times when this happens then having a lower avg. CMC will allow you to actually play Magic.

The other problem is why play worse high CMC creatures then Vilis, Broker of Blood , Pontiff of Blight , Sheoldred, Whispering One or Reiver Demon ? There's no reason to jam a bunch of other high CMC creatures just because you can. These creatures especially the interaction of Vilis, Pontiff with Krrik are better than all the other high CMC creatures who are within the budget here. You would rather draw them then the others therefore make it easier to draw them and don't include lots of other high CMC creatures?

Pontiff of Blight giving extort to all creatures you control is good especially if you're playing a life gain strategy. Extort can be paid for with Phyrexian mana, that's what makes it busted. Each extort trigger can be paid with 2 life, but if you have three opponents you gain 3 life for each trigger, you gain 1 life per opponents who loss life. This means you extort for free and also gain 1 life after each trigger. Even if you only have two opponents you're still getting to extort for free because of Phyrexian mana.


Before you can do anything with Krrik and Phyrexian mana you have to get him on the battlefield and this means getting four mana (colorless or black). First priority for upgrades to consider is adding more early game ramp that's within the budget:

The strength of Krrik is Phyrexian mana, but to take advantage of this you want lots of other one mana cards. When you play Krrik you want to right away start giving him counters:

Cremate, Wisps, Tainted are not usually playable cards, but with Krrik they are because they're free to cast and most draw a card. For one mana or free Symmetry can get you Necropotence into your hand.

Two drops are also good, not as good as one drops, but still good value with Phyrexian mana:

You could fit Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent in here if you wanted by cutting some cards that are by no means as powerful as either because these tutors can get you Necropotence , Bolas's Citadel or Aetherflux Reservoir ; all more impactful cards/game winning cards. Consider cutting these cards to add Demonic/Intent? Most of these cards are high mana cost redundancy which are not needed:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Very original idea, +1

I think you could use about 4-6 more ramp cards. I'd recomment Charcoal Diamond and Nirkana Revenant and Solemn Simulacrum and Coldsteel Heart and Talisman of Indulgence and Magus of the Coffers .

Also, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth isn't technically ramp, but it can help power up your Crypt Ghast and other swamp-ramp. And Expedition Map can help you find it.

if it weren't for the fact that he is a human Magus of the Coffers would be a cheap addition until a Cabal Coffers presents itself.

austintayshus on Would you kindly do some tutoring?

Magus of the Coffers and Cabal Stronghold and the less budget version Cabal Coffers can help you ramp, especially when paired with your Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . And you can use Expedition Map to help find the land combo pieces.

Some other cards I'd recommend:

Hope this helps!

That all sounds good!

Yeah it’s good you are weary on putting in high cmc cards, but id still think having 7-9 of those wouldn't be too many, as long as you have good ramp. I’d say you should get your hands on an Emergence Zone stat. Because it gives nonland stuff flash for a turn and that may enable you to be more sneaky flashing in Axis, Sands of Repay in kind. It’s a budget alternative to Vedalken Orrery .

Affordable ways to ramp: Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck , Magus of the Coffers . Except Crypt and Coffers are over your $2/card budget.
