the_solitaire on First ever EDH deck... help?

1 month ago

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.

CastleSiege on Malfegor EDH

I have a Malfegor deck!

He's better off as a utility piece in your command zone rather than trying to build the deck around him. I play it as a synergy through discard deck. Pretty much all the Megrim effects, wheels in Rackdos colors, and a reanimator package (Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, and Command the Dreadhorde). The World gorger Dragon combo makes a decent win condition. My favorite synergy in the deck is between Avaricious Dragon and Ghirapur Orrery :D

First off, I would reccomend switching to a different format than vintage: As the home of literally every broken and old card in the game, it's incredibly difficult for random decks to do well, much less ones one a budget. Vintage is incredibly expensive in paper and still moderatly expensive online, but both are equally inhospitable for decks you randomly brew.

If you are still interested, here is a decent list of good vintage decks.

As far as your deck: Your deck suffers from lack of card quality (Fireball hasn't been good in a long time, Liliana's Caress and Megrim aren't great, your lands are really bad, etc.) and your decks plan in general is a bit slow against the amazing card quality top vintage decks have access to (Veil of Summer in particular is a big blowout).

The closest deck I can think of to yours is Legacy Pox, the format is slightly cheaper than vintage (still ridiculous though) and a bit less high powered.

It sounds like you don't want to spend a ton of money to compete, so maybe Modern is better than Legacy, or for that matter maybe Pioneer- I know nothing about that format though.

Cheapest your going to still be competetive in modern is usually going to be around 100 dollars, but top decks can easilly go to 1500. You could look into modern 8-rack, it's never been super popular (or for that matter the most competetive) but it is a discard deck sort of like the one you have, but punishing opponents for having empty hands rather than discardding cards (which is better in almost every common scenario)

Casual MTG is probably your best option for playing the deck you want to play (at the price you want to pay), but I can understand wanting to have a good deck that could comptete should you want to.

Apollo_Paladin on Dementia's Shadow (Mono-Black Discard)

Liliana's Caress is superior to Megrim in every way; although you can sometimes get away with running both.

You should add Bazaar Trader, it will add some extra redundancy for getting gifts to your opponents if Blim gets killed or can't get through. Blim also causes opponent to discard cards every time he attacks. You can capitalize on this with Liliana's Caress, Megrim, Sangromancer, Waste Not, Fell Specter, and Geth's Grimoire. If you add The Haunt of Hightower, Fell Specter, and Waste Not, you can help bolster your board presence for blocking (and support if Blim gets removed).

legendofa on What's your favorite card?

Megrim got me into the game, but my top cards right are the cheap removal suite: Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, and Maelstrom Pulse. Your annoying thing is gone, no questions asked or answered.

Hey! Great deck you got there. Really good synergy and I liked the control build. I would add hate cards like Aven Mindcensor, Vryn Wingmare, and some more pillow fort cards like Sphere of Safety and Norn's Annex. Just for the sake of being wholesome, I would cut Felidar Sovereign, it's really not a fun card and you already have interactive and fun wincons in the deck. Lot of enchantments in the deck, so Idyllic Tutor and Mesa Enchantress. Monarch can't be bad here with how taxing attacking you should be once you get set up, so Thorn of the Black Rose and other monarch cards seem pretty good here.

As for cuttables, Megrim seems like it won't be relevant very often, you don't have a good discard package. Angelic Accord won't be doing much for you, as a 4/4 every couple turn isn't exactly efficient. Night's Whisper and Thought Distortion are all good, but there are better cards that can net you more value. I would also cut a basic or two as you already have a solid amount of rocks. Cheers

Long time no comment, here.

Suggest Liliana's Caress and/or Megrim for discarding away your opponent's life count.

Underworld Dreams and Howling Mine ensures damage on the draw and that you have something for them to discard.

Consider Painful Lesson or Foreboding Fruit for more of the same, and maybe even Bloodchief's Thirst or Heartless Act in place of Black Sun for removal.
