Mogis's Marauder

Creature — Human Berserker

When Mogis's Marauder enters the battlefield, up to X target creatures each gain intimidate and haste until end of turn, where X is your devotion to black. (Each {B} in the mana costs of permanents you control counts towards your devotion to black.)

multimedia I'll definitely keep an eye on those areas. Brave the Sands was already on my watch list for potential things to cut. I already have a Satyr Wayfinder, so I'll go ahead and swap that in. I cut it from an early version of the deck when I was averse to self-mill. Nothing felt worse than milling only instants and sorceries into the yard and not even getting a land out of the deal.

In fact, I'll probably swap in all of those suggestions except I'm going to push back on Ghoultree and Dream Devourer. You're probably right about DD, but I like the idea of putting away a Living Death for an opportune moment. And Ghoultree feels like an easy way to drop a 10/10 for one mana fairly early in the game if I've been dredging well.

I'll look at Ramp too. I know I keep giving the same defense of "when my Fauna Shaman engine is running", but that's another situation where, when it works, I'm playing two lands EVERY turn, no questions asked.

This may be a dumb question, but I ask it in all sincerity: what am I hoping to draw that would keep me relevant in the game, especially if I'm cutting removal cards like Putrefy?

Truthfully, I don't see myself mutating Nethroi more than once per game, so I've been trying to focus on how to just end the game in that reanimation. My ideal situation would be to mutate onto Hydra Omnivore, recur Mogis's Marauder, use Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel to exile Karmic Guide and a big creature like Ghoultree to give enough +1/+1 counters to the Commander to end the game with commander damage for each player, since Omnivore deals damage to each player equal to the damage dealt to defending player. To better achieve that goal, I was considering swapping out Giant Ankheg for Archetype of Endurance since it grants all my creatures Trample. It only gives my creatures Ward 2 instead of hexproof but it might be worth the trade off if I can end the game right there... is that crazy? Am I putting too much stock in my ideal situation?

Nice discoveries of Mogis's Marauder and Songs of the Damned. Well done, you've added a creative creature combo to use with Scourge of the Skyclaves in your graveyard by reanimating Mogis's Marauder.

If you want to be more competitive with current low budget then think more about the areas of deck building to take advantage of Nethroi as Commander? For some improvements expand on the three most important areas?

  • Self-mill and other ways to get creatures into your graveyard.
  • A combination of creatures to reanimate with Nethroi that wins the game.
  • Ramp to cast 7 mana Nethroi.

In the simplest terms these are the three areas to consider improving. Consider dedicating more deck spots to each of these areas? Out of these three areas you've greatly improved the second one, creatures who are reanimated to win the game. Next, make it easier to get those creatures into your graveyard to reanimate them?

Sources of repeatable self-mill that's not dredge can be helpful. The problem with dredge is you want more draw to have cards in your hand to make up for replacing draw to dredge. Repeatable self-mill that happens at your upkeep then lets you draw for the turn. On low budget I wouldn't play less than 12 sources of self-mill/other ways to get creatures into your graveyard, it's important with Nethroi.

None of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are particularly good with strategies here. Archfiend's Vessel is interesting, but you can only use it once, that's not good enough when reanimation is a main strategy here. Faeburrow Elder is more ramp that can tap for two mana, but if you control a black permanent then it can tap for three mana. It also has 0 power.

BishopAtavist on Abzan Graveyard Recursion Help

I ended up cutting Crop Rotation for Songs of the Damned for a more explosive one time effect. Also, multimedia your comment about haste got me thinking and I discovered Mogis's Marauder which would make for an insane recursion event with Nethroi or with Living Death. Thanks again for all the feedback!

StoryArcher on This (mono-black) deck is SO …

1 year ago

This deck is so much freaking fun to play, especially if you like old-school 'fair' type decks. Just love how interactive it is.

I haven't played much since the pandemic hit (do people actually still play Modern?), so I haven't had a chance to really review the newer sets - can anyone offer suggestions on how the deck can be improved, particularly with regards to the side-board? It's balanced pretty well right now with a smooth-as-silk mana curve.

Keeping in mind the amount of life-gain in this deck, some of the cards I've been tinkering with (to replace Tymaret, Chosen from Death) are a one-of Killing Wave, Collective Brutality, Essence Harvest, Stain the Mind, Dismember and Torment of Hailfire. Creature-wise I'm also thinking a one-of Mogis's Marauder as a sort of timely finisher or a Nightmare Shepherd.

Would Gatekeeper of Malakir be an improvement on Geralf's Messenger here? I feel like between the hand destruction, all the deathtouch and the set of Murderous Rider I don't actually need that much more creature removal, especially if my opponent gets to choose who goes.

I played around with tossing in a couple of Bojuka Bog or Leechridden Swamp but it seems like any lands coming in tapped (especially early) messed with my flow. Thoughts on that?

Regarding sideboard, do I need a better means of dealing with Artifacts or Land? If so, what would you suggest?

If you were ok splashing green instead of blue then you could use Bloodbond March which would be killer. Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Mogis's Marauder would be a good win condition with all of your rats out. And if you wanted to switch out Rat Colony for Relentless Rats it would help with devotion but it wouldn't let you bring back Pack Rat or Piper of the Swarm.

General
-------------------------------
I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.

36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.

add
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources

remove
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.

If you wanna go revel in riches
-------------------------------
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey  Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault  Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it

If you wanna go infect
-------------------------------
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate

Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

Have you considered Prowler's Helm or Mogis's Marauder? They can both pretty budget and benefit your ninjas after they sneak in. Plus the marauder kinda demands to be blocked and thus acts like a decoy for your other ninjas. Hope this helps.

Also, Mogis's Marauder to give all your creatures haste when you mass-reanimate.
