Other Note: Rakdos morph, I Love It!!!
Rakdos, Lord of Riots + Experimental Frenzy could play like Animar, Soul of Elements except you get access to cards like Gift of Doom, Grim Haruspex, Soul Collector
digging deep with Necropotence then casting Final Fortune could be game ending
let me know how this deck goes
p.s. nether of these cards would benefit you lens only effects permanents which means only cards already on the field, Mycosynth Lattice & Chromatic Orrery would be better options

DemonDragonJ on Commander Collection Black is hot …

For any users who have not yet seen the set, here is a link to the full information from the set, and the cards contained within are as follows:

-Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip

-Ghoulcaller Ghisa


-Phyrexian Arena


-Toxic Deluge

-Sol Ring

Command Tower

I expected that those last two cards would be in this set, and they certainly have nice artwork, but this set, overall, feels far less powerful than did the green set, which severely disappoints me, as black is one of my two favorite colors in this game (the other being white).

All three creatures should not have been in this set; I, myself would have chosen Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, and a tutor, such as Imperial Seal.

Caerwyn, in no way am I doubting the power of Necropotence, but its two drawbacks can actually hurt a player in many situations, so I prefer Greed in the majority of situations, although I am still hoping for a reprint of Book of Rass at some point in the future.

After the excellence of the green set, I had high hopes for all future installments in this series, so the actual list of cards in this set is very disappointing. Hopefully, the remaining three colors shall all have excellent sets.

I am not super fond of this collection, but think a lot of that disappointment may be from Wizards perpetuating the myth that Phyrexian Arena should be an EDH staple (Necropotence should have taken that slot).

I think the art is a bit of a miss as well, with the original printings generally being superior to the new versions.

Update on Necropotence: Works very well with Tortured Existence and the likes, since discarded cards enter the graveyard before going into exile, which means they can actually be bounced to my hand before getting lost in oblivion. Perfect!

Lanzo493 on Tasigur cEDH Advice

I like Reclaim and Phantasmal Image. This is because you mill yourself a lot and there's usually a creature worth copying. Disciple of Deceit could be useful if you expect to face decks that you'll be able to attack into. Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire is probably better, though. I don't know if Necropotence fits your deck or not, since it doesn't appear to be a combo deck or a deck that can gain life. I see Tasigur as a control deck that stabilizes in the late game and uses politics to pit players against each other.

I would also suggest Notion Thief (it even looks like you're just holding up Tasigur's mill mana).

@Lanzo493 - I made some alterations last night. Vault is in, i picked up Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Farseek, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Necropotence. I'm not sure how my Doomsday stack will look, i will definitely need Wraith if i add it in. I want to be able to just win when i resolve it, and i don't really see a stack that will let me do that even with an activation of Tasigurs ability. Granted i only spent about a minute on it. Maybe a string of cantrips ending in Thassa's Oracle? Haha. Should have some mana up when i go for it. Mnemonic Betrayal looks interesting. I'll add that to my list of potential acquisitions. Thank you!
