Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Discussion

For a wincon you could aim for full power in the Animate Dead Worldgorger Dragon combo (you animate the dragon, it exiles all of your permanents, the animate dead causes you to sac the dragon, loop until you end it with any different creature to animate. result is being able to tap lands for mana each loop and getting all the etb triggers. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is also an interesting landfall creature that can win when comboing. with ob and Life from the Loam I 2nd in suggesting, life alone can help you with your running out of gas issue as if you have 3 cycle lands you can turn life into quite the draw spell you can recur.

shadow63 finale isn't an auto win spell with avenger since the buff always happens before you can resolve the making plant army, if the buff happened at the beginning of your next combat then it'd work.

Id have to disagree with the Ob Nixilis, the Fallen Between Yarok and the majority of my ramp being Land Search Focus i have had multiple games Ob Pings for 40 Damage just off Lands.

Primal Rage is actually a good idea, i never really thought about my guys having it anyways. i think that will be my first Cut.

Teferi's Time Twist is another Control card. Most games Yarok, the Desecrated is a Giant Bulls eye. It has been on my short list to cut tho as i Might be forcing Vigor Back in as there will be a Firesong and Sunspeaker Deck at my group that is 85% Damage spells.

I would either cut Ob Nixilis, the Fallen or Primal Rage . I don't htink you have enough landfall support to make him worthwhile and for Primal Rage , like half your creatures already have trample, plus you have a bunch of "go wide" cards anyway.

Hey thecatch22!

I saw your reddit post and I wanted to be encouraging and say this list looks good! It is just like Amaz's Yarok | Game Knights #28.

If Commandeer is your pet favorite, I'd say "thievery" is your guidepost for this deck.

I spy Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake + Agent of Treachery (infinite combo)... or a big Villainous Wealth . Maybe Torment of Hailfire ?

You could also do landfall or landsac with Titania, Protector of Argoth , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen etc. A lot of people seem to be doing this.

Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host are great benchwarmers just like Panharmonicon .

Wild Pair ? Sire of Stagnation ? Avenger of Zendikar ? God-Eternal Rhonas ?

Definitely play Lotus Cobra .

Most of what I listed are just extra wincons. 'Seems like you're doing fine. I don't see anything too funky (eg. Lifeline ).

I'd recommend putting together a list of anything that catches your eye so you have a pool of 100-200 cards to brew from.

Rakdos, Demon Lord

Legendary Planeswalker - Rakdos

If a spell or ability would cause its controller to gain life, that player loses that much life instead.

+2: Add or equal to the total life lost this turn by opponents.

-1: Create a 5/5 black Demon creature token with flying and trample.

-13: Each player gets and emblem with, "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice half the non-Demon permanents they control, rounded up."


I'd like a pre-spark planeswalker, not a flip-into-walker, like from Origins.

E.G. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , Venser, Shaper Savant , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Xenagos, God of Revels , etc.

Man Lord Windgrace seems sweet. I've been messing around with building a The Gitrog Monster Land Matters Deck. Having Red gives you access to so many sweet cards you should think about putting in Omnath, Locus of Rage and Decimate .

My Gitrog deck uses The Gitrog Monster to put a bunch of lands in the graveyard and get them back with Splendid Reclamation for a crazy amount of landfall triggers. I'm also considering Scapeshift and World Shaper to do the same thing. Having a bunch of lands in the graveyard makes Worm Harvest amazing too.

Life from the Loam , Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds would be great to bring back lands from the graveyard or Courser of Kruphix play lands from the top of your deck and gain some life.

Wayward Swordtooth and Mina and Denn, Wildborn let you play two lands a turn. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen seems like a good landfall card and World Breaker seems like such a Chris card.

@ chaosumbreon87 Thanks for you comment. I haven't tried any of them. I know Kruphix, God of Horizons dosen't fit the landfall theme but he is very good utility and helps ramp out big spells that let this deck win out of nowhere. If I was forced to change the commander I would probably grudgingly switch to Tatyova, Benthic Druid and cut some of the high CMC spells I am running. Of the legendary creatures you listed the only one that fits lands matter theme is Thrasios, Triton Hero . I have thought about running Thrasios with another partner commander to add another color to this deck. I would love to run the cards Knight of the Reliquary , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , and Omnath, Locus of Rage . But if I changed this deck that much by adding more colors I feel that the core combos of the deck start to fall apart. I just wish Kruphix, God of Horizons had partner. Hopefully Wizards of the Coast gives us some more awesome landfall cards in green, blue, or Simic.

Now that I look... I don't have any land fetch. Thanks for pointing that out.

If I get Ruin Ghost and Retreat to Coralhelm or Walking Atlas with any bounce land then I can trigger whichever landfall effect I have in play. My previous build of this deck had Black with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Retreat to Hagra as a path to victory.
