Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100:

In your forum topic you said you're not worried about reducing the high avg. CMC by cutting high CMC creatures because you can pay Phyrexian mana to reduce their cost. This is true to some degree, but you're not always in every game going to have Krrik on the battlefield, access to Phyrexian mana, and the times when this happens then having a lower avg. CMC will allow you to actually play Magic.

The other problem is why play worse high CMC creatures then Vilis, Broker of Blood , Pontiff of Blight , Sheoldred, Whispering One or Reiver Demon ? There's no reason to jam a bunch of other high CMC creatures just because you can. These creatures especially the interaction of Vilis, Pontiff with Krrik are better than all the other high CMC creatures who are within the budget here. You would rather draw them then the others therefore make it easier to draw them and don't include lots of other high CMC creatures?

Pontiff of Blight giving extort to all creatures you control is good especially if you're playing a life gain strategy. Extort can be paid for with Phyrexian mana, that's what makes it busted. Each extort trigger can be paid with 2 life, but if you have three opponents you gain 3 life for each trigger, you gain 1 life per opponents who loss life. This means you extort for free and also gain 1 life after each trigger. Even if you only have two opponents you're still getting to extort for free because of Phyrexian mana.


Before you can do anything with Krrik and Phyrexian mana you have to get him on the battlefield and this means getting four mana (colorless or black). First priority for upgrades to consider is adding more early game ramp that's within the budget:

The strength of Krrik is Phyrexian mana, but to take advantage of this you want lots of other one mana cards. When you play Krrik you want to right away start giving him counters:

Cremate, Wisps, Tainted are not usually playable cards, but with Krrik they are because they're free to cast and most draw a card. For one mana or free Symmetry can get you Necropotence into your hand.

Two drops are also good, not as good as one drops, but still good value with Phyrexian mana:

You could fit Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent in here if you wanted by cutting some cards that are by no means as powerful as either because these tutors can get you Necropotence , Bolas's Citadel or Aetherflux Reservoir ; all more impactful cards/game winning cards. Consider cutting these cards to add Demonic/Intent? Most of these cards are high mana cost redundancy which are not needed:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Creature - Avatar

Flying

Dreamsprite's power and toughness are equal to the number of Islands you control.

Just colorshifted a Nightmare for you. Wasn't sure what one could do to colorshift a staple card without breaking the game, but it doesn't seem like anyone plays Nightmare anymore (and we see Tempest Djinn all the time in Standard, so this seems like a blue ability).

FearMySnakes on White Horses

TheRoaringRegisaur no, it's not easy. I wanted to make a pure horse deck so bad but there just aren't enough cards. I had to supplement with knights/pegasus/unicorns. There are a handful of black horses ( Plague Mare , Nightmare , Dusk Charger , Stallion of Ashmouth ) but I haven't found a good way to build a deck around them.

Doom Whisperer is a bomb Nightmare. Plague Mare is on theme. Could even go with Nightmare

Oh and for my previous post Cruel Reality for Bitterheart Witch .

apart from Demon of Wailing Agonies and Vault of Whispers this deck could be modern legal.

you got to many high costed cards that do nothing, don't have synergy or are straight up trash.

you dont have to read all of this... its a lot. eg: Fen Hauler (you have almost no artifacts) and you could replace it for Gurmag Angler , Steel Wall , Prakhata Club Security , Prizefighter Construct can be chump blocked and dies to anything, Pitiless Vizier how do you discard or cicle cards?, Sengir Vampire high cmc, Phage the Untouchable the same but its actually a neat card that you could make some jank deck (thanks for the idea), Nightmare trash, Night Market Guard trash too, Extractor Demon to high costed unless you have a way to trow it on the gy, Dread Defiler the same and does nothing really, Bloodhunter Bat trash, Demon of Wailing Agonies you dont have a commander, Haunted Plate Mail to high costed and you got too many creatures to even use it, Staff of the Death Magus not usefull, Cinder Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary whats the point??.

uff dude, from what im looking its a deck you made from with the cards you had lying around, so you want to first have an idea of the game plan you wanna go to, a discard base control or aggro or reanimator and so on. or see what card you would want to work with and make the deck around it, when you do i can help you build the deck. just make a comment or hit me up idk.

Mono-black aggro deck with transformational sideboard. Who cares about matchups anyway?!

For transformation, this is probably the best option:

-4 Bad Moon
-3 Hymn to Tourach
-1 Nightmare
-4 Stone-Throwing Devils
-2 Hypnotic Specter
-1 Black Knight

Too little land. You should have 24 or 25, especially considering Nightmare and Nantuko Shade.

Metroid_Hybrid on ALL HAIL YARGLE!!!

11 months ago

So I decided to embrace the new Dark Vanilla Legendary Overlord: Yargle, Glutton of Urborg, and as such, have crafted a Voltron strategy around him..

I’ve looked into several dedicated Voltron strategies that have already been popping up across the Internet, and to that point, here’s how mine broadly compares:

  1. Test’s positive: Infect is fully embraced here, but no Infect creatures outside of Plague Myr..
  2. This is not a budget-build..
  3. I’ve inserted some alternate wincons in case Yargle gets effectively hated out of the game..

(I think it’s also worth mentioning that I’m building this to be my go-to “competitive” deck for Commander..)

The alternate wincons mentioned above come in two forms, both of which builds off of the early game Mana-ramping that will be happening anyway: “-Burn” (Torment of Hailfire, etc), and Beaters that scale in size (Nightmare, etc)..


All I need now is a little help cutting a handful of cards from the list, sleeve it up, and beat face! YARG!!!

I also have a bare-bones outline of a Primer started that I will flesh out as I get to spend some time piloting Yargle..
