Each player chooses an artifact, a creature, an enchantment, and a planeswalker from among nonland permanents they control, then sacrifices the rest. If was spent to cast this spell, you choose the permanents for each player instead.

Descent of the Dragons can turn your opponents big guys to 4/4's, turn your smaller tokens into 4/4's and give you a way to kill Codie. I'd probably replace Double Major with it.

Thanks for the comment. I cut Golgari Queen and Blasphemous right away. I will have to digest your recommendations for a bit before I cut some others. My LGS just went out of business last week and I tried out a new LGS and Mythos of Snapdax was used heavily by at least one player, otherwise Tamiyo, Collector of Tales would be a quick cut. I have to figure out my new meta first before she gets the axe.

I think I will at least play test several of your recs then continue the cutting.

Thanks again.

I guess I could say your stance on the community's concerns for this secret lair is...cold-blooded (see what I did there? You're just like Negan like you claimed! Haha) /jk

Joking aside, is there a specific reason you have Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in the list? The reason I ask is because he shuts off all your "when a creature an opponent controls dies" triggers, such as Revel in Riches, Blood Artist, and Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Ob Nixilis, Yahenni, etc. If your friends are all playing graveyard decks I can see this as a piece of GY hate, otherwise you might want to replace him?

Replacements might be Despark or Elspeth Conquers Death to hit higher noncreature CMC threats.

Also you have a lot of board wipes, but I didn't see any "sacrifice" wipes aside from Mythos of Snapdax. Single Combat, Slaughter the Strong, Tragic Arrogance, and Killing Wave. These will play nice with Negan since you can save him if you want (and you'll still get the treasure tokens whether you save him or sac him).

Cuts:

Gravebreaker Lamia: You do get to tutor something to the grave, but you don't really cast from the grave. I'd rather just play Final Parting and also tutor something to hand.

The Birth of Meletis is kinda meh. It's an early enchanment yes but I feel it doesn't do much. I'd rather play an Luminarch Ascension or just a mana rock.

Mythos of Snapdax seems too restrictive. Another boardwipe sounds much better. Still a low costing one such as Wrath of God, or the new one from commander legends that's mono white and 5 mana Slash the Ranks.

Merciless Eviction should go in for most boardwipes as it's so good. Perhaps for Ruinous Ultimatum as that is very color restrictive and merciless is less mana.

Aphemia, the Cacophony isn't that good.

With your low curve and many rocks I'd cut a land or cut the two Diamonds as they're kinda bad. Sadly. They're acceptable in mono colored but not really here.

Additions:

Ghostly Prison/Sphere of Safety is necessary pillowfort. There's a black version too with cumulative upkeep as well. Might be good in our meta against many of David's decks, as well as mine.

Alseid of Life's Bounty is just great. Protects either Ghen or an enchantment you don't want dying at that time.

Agent of Erebos: Some much needed gravehate.

Aegis of the Gods is good for protection against direct burn.

Spirit of the Labyrinth is good if you're leaning into the staxxy parts of cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric. Along the same lines Stony Silence and Aura of Silence are nice picks.

I have many more recommendations but these are the start. I don't want to particularly overwhelm or change the deck.

GL my guy.

You definitely need to add Mythos of Snapdax I built my Negan deck more blink and flicker focused, to abuse the crap out of his etb trigger. I've played the deck a few times online with some friends and they have a hard time keeping creatures on the board.

StopShot on Should I not run Negan, …

1 year ago

Hello, I don't watch the Walking Dead and I honestly think the Secret Lair: Walking Dead product is a very bad decision on Wizard's part. That being said, one of the cards being released provides a silver bullet to a problem I often encounter in certain games.

Card: Negan, The Cold-Blooded

I'm not planning to make him my commander, but I want to use him in the 99, because he is practically the best removal spell ever made when dealing with creatures that have both hexproof and indestructible.

Seriously, the next best cards are Council's Judgment, Crackling Doom Soul Shatter, Mythos of Snapdax, Slaughter the Strong, etc. These cards all have conditions where they can fail to remove the creature I want gone, but Negan has none of those same problems making him the most effective piece of spot removal printed to this date, effectively costing only 4 mana given the treasure token.

I know I could just run other sure-fire answers like Descend upon the Sinful or Apocalypse instead, but those cards can massively hurt my side of the table too which makes them not worth running and they can also make the rest of the table unhappy with me for playing exile-wipes.

Another thing to note is that Negan is a creature which means I can make him uncounterable with a Cavern of Souls rather than Boseiju, Who Shelters All, a land that's much more inflexible to play with than Cavern. I can also reanimate his effect too with Volrath's Stronghold and other reanimation effects which would make him so good at keeping commanders with hexproof and indestructible repeatedly in check unlike a lot of the other one-time use instants and sorceries I have available.

The only issue is I think most play-groups will tell me that their play group will have this card banned given all the controversy surrounding it which is a shame. My question is, do you think its worth the trouble acquiring this card? If I'm going to spend a lot of money to buy a single only for most people to tell me I can't play it then I don't want to spend that kind of money, but for now I'm unsure. Would you advise for or against buying it? Thanks!
