Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion

I see someone else has already started brewing the new commander. I really like where the deck is heading! Here are a couple suggestions I would give for the brew:


-1 Ashen Powder...Seems like a worse Reanimate at way too high a cmc

-1 Beacon of Unrest... In general I dont think you'll be getting enough cards in opponent's graveyards for this to matter very much

-1 Crux of Fate... No dragons in the deck, doesn't seem incredibly good at 5 mana, but you can keep this one in without a huge problem.

I'm noticing maybe too much emphasis on a theft style of play? I personally would go the route of controlling your opponents hand and board until you can ramp to Tibalt and pop off, though this is your choice.


-1 Grab the Reins...7 mana for getting a little value out of a creature the destroying it just isn't good enough when you could be devoting that slot to better ramp options (which this deck desperately needs)

Mana Base:

Nothing much to say here, maybe cut a mountain or two for some swamps for better mana? Maze of Ith seems good for protecting walker Tibalt in a pinch


-1 Stormfist Crusader... One extra card per opponent usually won't matter

-1 Zealous Conscripts... Too expensive and not impactful enough without a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo package


-1 Glasses of Urza... this card will never be relevant. Ever.


Nothing much to say here in terms of cutables.


-1 Angrath, the Flame-Chained... To expensive, too little payoff

-1 Ob Nixilis Reignited...inefficient card draw/removal engine

Cards to Consider

Note: Add more sacrifice outlets like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician or Phyrexian Altar to prevent your opponents from getting any creatures you stole back. Additionally, I would suggest to find a few more cards of removal and focus on making the deck play as smoothly as possible. Really love where the deck is headed. Good work =)

Psychosis Crawler and Seizan, Perverter of Truth do not get doubled by Obosh, the Prey Piercer, as they cause loss of life instead of dealing damage. Same for Baneful Omen, Angrath, the Flame-Chained, and Ob Nixilis Reignited.

Cards to play: Psychosis Crawler which will reward you for drawing by dealing damage. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is the better ob nixilis for this deck. Whispering Madness, Dark Deal, Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, Incendiary Command, Wheel of Fate, Time Reversal, Echo of Eons are all wheel effects that make your opponents suddenly draw a ton of cards that will then let you deal damage to everyone. Prosperity Will have everyone drawing equally. Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Arcane Signet are decent mana rocks you're missing. Arcane Denial counters a spell and lets them draw and replaces itself. Stormfist Crusader howling mine effect but punishes at the same time.

Cards to take out. Pillage Very inefficient. Quest for Ancient Secrets Very slow. Sadistic Sacrament not really what this deck is truly wanting to do. Shrieking Affliction 99/100 games your opponents will have more than 1 card in hand. Darksteel Plate just too expensive to be good for this deck. Ob Nixilis Reignited not as good as the other ob nixilis. Cerebral Vortex not usually going to deal massive damage and only damages 1 opponent. Painful Quandary I like this card and probably wouldn't get rid of it, but your opponents will usually have the card to discard. Crawlspace not really going with your overall game plan, it does slow your opponents down,but not by enough. Nin, the Pain Artist it's a lot of mana to sink into an effect like this. Curse of Fool's Wisdom only targets 1 player, it's really too limited. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell a lot of your debate sources are black, this is decent with your commander but not much else. Reverberate I didn't see a huge number of decent targets forthis spell and it doesn't do a whole lot of good. Darksteel Ingot I don't personally like seeing 3 cost mana ramp, I'd suggest replacing it with a signet.

I would like to say that I really like your deck, it's an interesting take on an interesting commander. This is meant to be constructive and all with the best intentions.

The only issue with destroy all artifacts is that it destroys treasures, too. You can have it destroy all non-token artifacts instead, or something similar, instead. Or destroy all creatures and make that many treasures. That sounds pretty Gorgon-like. Also, most planeswalkers with creature removal abilities generally have them on their minus (think Liliana of the Veil, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Karn Liberated, etc), so I think that puts in perspective how powerful creature removal is. Planeswalkers with creature removal as a plus get banned like Oko, Thief of Crowns. I really like what you’ve got going here, though.

  • Your curve looks fine, but I think you want more lategame value. x decks in Modern run Liliana of the Veil, often as 4-ofs. You want something similar in lategame value generation. The planeswalkers you have now are a good start, but I think you really want a couple more, especially if they draw cards. 2 copies of Ob Nixilis Reignited might be good, as repeatable Murder and the ability to draw more cards is pretty good. Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage also does a decent impression of unplayable Lili of the Veil.

  • Removal Tribal? You have 10 pieces. I run 4-8 in my non-control decks.

  • Chevill seems weird. I think he's better in EDH. Great for politics. Not so great when he's a really situational Howling Mine that is hit by Fatal Push and Lightning Strike, which everyone is running. I admire trying to use him, but I don't think he's gonna see non-EDH play outside of standard.
