Night Dealings Discussion

Epicurus on I hope he didn't die of anything catching, eh?

Hello there! You were very kind to me in your comment on my Pyrohemia deck, so I figured that I should return the favor.

As a disclaimer, though, I am about to suggest a good number of changes, so bear with me. I'm definitely not aiming to completely deconstruct and rebuild your deck.

To begin, there are some cards in here that I find superfluous. For instance, I know that Crypt Rats is appealing, fits the theme, and acts kind of like a 5th Pestilence, but it requires assistance to stay alive. It isn't as good for the deck as it might seem. I feel like you'd be better off replacing it with something to tutor out the Pestilence, like Idyllic Tutor or Enlightened Tutor.

Similarly, High Priest of Penance is a one-shot ability that you're only running one of, and really would require Shielded by Faith in order to really floop the pig, which you're also only running one of. I would cut both of them.

Next, Sanguine Bond and Night Dealings are both good synergies with Pestilence, but they're also pulling up your mana curve. You want to make sure that you have mana to pump into Pestilence as often as possible. I would keep one or the other, or maybe even cut them both.

Then there's the 3 Lifelink I get it why you'd want them, but feel like you'd be better served with something like Sun Droplet that's not dependent on creatures dealing damage. You don't need to gain a ton of life, just enough to keep your life total higher than your opponent. By that same token, I think 3x Drain Life is too many.

Next, I would update your creature base. Remember that you need to have at least one creature in play to keep the Pestilence on the battlefield, and right now you only have 11 in the deck (and I just suggested cutting 2 of them). While I'm all about White Knight and Order A Lite Beer, I think you'd benefit from replacing a lot of that with creatures with less symbols in the mana cost, like Disciple of Grace, Death Speakers and/or Apostle of Purifying Light. And/or another Cemetery Gate. And then maybe a one-of Blood Baron of Vizkopa to round it out. In total, I'd suggest having north of 15 creatures.

Additionally, I would cut Ephara's Radiance, and either bring Disenchant down to 2x or cut it entirely and instead run 2x Vindicate.

And finally, consider changing your land base to include less lands that only produce white mana (i.e. less Plains). Since it's a casual deck, you could include Tainted Field, but also Isolated Chapel. 4x of each could replace all 8 Plains. Then, I'd replace the Caves of Koilos, one of the Swamp and the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with 4x Godless Shrine. If you made all of those changes, all of your lands would produce black mana, and 15 of them would produce white.

Again, that's a lot of changes. Please take them all as simply suggestions. I really love Pestilence decks, if you haven't noticed, haha...

Thank you so much! I forgot about the Ascensions entirely and they'd be super useful in my pod (very much a "no one swing until big things happen" meta) and I'd never even heard of Night Dealings.

fair enough! Its a solid idea.

Luminarch Ascension / Bloodchief Ascension would be extremely useful/recurable win cons that feed you counters for Tayam and hold up in a litany of metas.

I think that Elephant Grass should be mainboarded for a reliable source of age counters and protects you from early/mid game big swings.

Song of the Dryads is a gently wider use Kenrith's Transformation and recurable removal will always be desired.

i've found Profane Procession  Flip to be wildly useful in sun titan/tayam builds, the threat of removing any commander that comes down (commanders that are returned to the command zone via this exile don't count towards your 3 count) lets you get extremely political in a 4 player game.

Pir, Imaginative Rascal can get cheesey with tayam's vig counters. giving any creature two vig counters makes it easier to activate Tayam's ability and increasing some "age" counter triggers may prove equally useful.

Night Dealings is an extremely budget, abusable card in this build that I would highly recommend. Smooths your hands and the excess counters can be used by tayam.

Things off the top of my head.

Wirex on Sygg Rogue Tribal

Hey Thanks armlessbastard ! I think you are probably correct about Crosis's Chamber. I think I was just throwing in everything i could find that added grixis colors without really reading them. I'll probably shave a rock or two in favor of some more basic lands (I think I overthought it on my first go round). I really need to lean more into the +1+1 counters synergy that Marchessa provides, because it feels like im not really utilizing her to her fullest potential. I hate to say it, because it would be a lot more work, but there may be a commander that fits the archetype i'm going for better. Sygg, River Cutthroat may be better.

Some things I think I will add on the next go round are Herald's Horn, Reconnaissance Mission, Unspeakable Symbol, and Night Dealings

king-saproling on Hound Tribe Lord, or Kerberos' True Chain Storm?
