Morbid Opportunist

Creature — Human Rogue

Whenever one or more other creatures die (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before ceasing to exist), draw a card. This ability triggers only once each turn.

I don't think Mahadi, Emporium Master quite makes it. The fact that it can only trigger on your own turn makes it a bit too limited for my liking. I would probably go for Pawn of Ulamog in that slot as it both gives mana and an additional body to sacrifice for more value if you prefer. If you're looking for something in this slot and not running Pitiless Plunderer you may want to consider that.

Mari, the Killing Quill is currently still in the testing phase for me. I've only been able to get her out a couple times so far (I probably should just tutor for her in games) but she can trigger on her own as she is an assassin, and the fact that she gives herself deathtouch comes in handy as well. Additionally, the exile triggers on a creature dying for any reason, independent of having any rogues etc, which is very handy given how common graveyard decks are.

Alongside her I have Dauthi Voidwalker and Oona's Blackguard for tribally relevant cards, but I would like to get maybe one or two more playable cards in that vein to be totally happy. Among current options Zulaport Cutthroat, Ghostly Pilferer, Morbid Opportunist, Grim Hireling, Murderous Redcap, Guildpact Informant, and Glasspool Mimic  Flip strike me as being possibilities, but I'm not sure where I want to go on it at the moment.

I prefer Talisman of Creativity over situational ramp cards like Mahadi since it's valuable even on an empty board. If anything I'd cut something like Mari or something that similarly creates situational value in a different area, like Thief of Sanity if I felt I'd prefer to trade card advantage for more ramp.

Adjusted deck a little:



**The other 2 Sac lands I will wait for the next modern set to hopefully reprint them. My next add will probably be Prismatic Vista

**I want to add Morbid Opportunist I have been playing with it on MTG Arena and it has done very well and that's 1v1. I think it will shine in commander. Just have to decide what to drop.

Morbid Opportunist is such an over performer. Likely, one of the cheapest and best uncommons you can get.

Since you've got some ways to sacrifice things Morbid Opportunist can be good card draw, and Dockside Chef can be likewise. I always like the repeated card draw over the one-off Read the Bones cards. Some one-off card draw can be ok if it draws at least three cards, but I always like things that continually keep my hand full.

I'm mildly confused, maybe I wasn't clear in my communication? I wouldn't want Welcoming Vampire to have no restrictions. Just different ones. Same for Morbid Opportunist and so on. Although... Mesa Enchantress exists lol. Though the trigger being on cast is arguably a decent restriction itself. And I wouldn't consider any of these to be as busted as say Necropotence. Which is a card that I'm not sure should have been printed.

Morbid Opportunist would be a similar card to Welcoming Vampire. Yet oftentimes I still prefer it to Grim Haruspex, which has a much higher ceiling. There is no limit on the latter except that it has to be non-token creatures, which is a pretty serious restriction indeed since oftentimes tokens are the fuel you want to use to draw cards and not the creatures you invested in hard-casting honestly. Haruspex is best in many decks when a boardwipre would blow you out and you can reload your hand. In most decks I'd rather play opportunist, but in my Meren deck both are great and Haruspex far better, because stuff is dying right and left. But it is true that while Welcoming Vampire is welcome, I mostly play it in white weenie decks where my draw options are limited. It is also true that Rhystic Study is totally off-color and should be white today, and I hardly think it would break the format to print a white version of it.
