Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted Discussion

I don't know about this deck honestly. Your trying to be kind to opponents but playing stax? Seems kind of counter productive to me. Stax is like the opposite of being friendly to the other people, so I am just not sure how well this strategy will work. Cards to take out: Mind Stone , Fate Unraveler , Garrulous Sycophant , Kaervek, the Spiteful , Austere Command , Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , Gang Up . I know that isn't 20 cards, but that is a start. Try to take out cards that do not do what your deck is trying to do. Hope that helps.

How do you feel about Destiny Spinner ? I feel like it would help protect some of your big plays. I think Sphinx of the Second Sun might be cool in here too if you think you could fit it. Another draw and untap is useful, plus you'd trigger your sagas twice a turn. The only downside I can see are cumulative upkeep cards like Elephant Grass and Mystic Remora .

I'd replace Mental Discipline with Compulsion . Compulsion is a straight upgrade in that it costs less and it can sac itself for a card too.

Getting into more expensive stuff, I feel like Squandered Resources would allow for some absolute bomb plays in here. City of Solitude and the much more affordable Dosan the Falling Leaf would protect you quite well, considering you only run two instants I don't think they would hold you back much at all.

As far as cuts go, I would look at Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted , Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage , and Arlinn, Voice of the Pack look/feel weak to me. I don't think they offer much to the deck and while Arlinn does make tokens it feels kind of meh compared to other walkers like Vraska.

Medomai's Prophecy seems pretty weak to me as well, maybe you have different experiences than I do but it feels really weak compared to other sagas. Having to name your next play could be risky too depending on what you have for options in your hand.

+1 from me, really cool take on Muldrotha!

I have a similar deck except it is abzan. Abzan Planeswalkers. I think I would change the Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted for Liliana, Dreadhorde General , and instead of adding more Assassin's Trophy , add Maelstrom Pulse . Let me know if that works.

Deck is Historic Bo1

Saw SaffronOlive do a Jund Superfriends standard deck with Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . It looked super fun.

I went with a less combo finish and more of traditional Rock/Golgari value grind. So even if I don't have a Dream Devourer to power everything out, the deck still frequently win by just grinding it out. That said, fortelling Vorinclex into a turn 5 ultimate from Nissa, Who Shakes the World normally leads to a scoop

It's gotten my from bronze 3 to gold 1 so far with a 50ish percent win rate and am just looking to tighten it up. I know it's going to get tougher from here.

How can bring this deck to Compleation.

Specific questions:

Should I finish off the playset of Thoughtseize or should I grab more removal like Assassin's Trophy

I think that Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is not a great choice for a planeswalker. He is only in the deck because I did not have another planeswalker available. I have a mythic wildcard and was trying to figure out what my best option for the slot is.

I know the land base needs work, I'm dealing with a rare wildcard deficit.

Any other input welcome. Thank you in advance.

sub780lime While the main deck is Teysa, from time to time I make some changes to lower the power level changing the commander to Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer or I add from sideboard Harvester of Souls and Vampiric Rites. Thats why I keep Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower on the main deck.

I don't like Nightmare Shepherd in this deck, since I lose the possibility to reanimate the creature if I exile it with him. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted ability can only be used twice at most, and in my playgroup they will kill it after using him once most of the times. About Hunted Witness, I have him and other similar cards of CMC 1, but for the moment I prefer to use the 2 CMC that I have on my deck due to the keywords they include.

High Market, Hell's Caretaker and Talisman of Hierarchy are on the list of cards to try to get when the situation of the pandemic gets better and is possible to go again to LGS, since on the village I live there's none and I need to go to the city next to my hometown.

I like the look of the list. With Teysa, you can never have enough sac outlets. Have you considered High Market. The card is only a couple bucks at most and it gives you another means to trigger Teysa's ability. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted can also be used on your own stuff for triggers and draw.

I noticed both Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower in the deck. What's your draw line to make these worthwhile. I am not saying they aren't I'm just wondering how often they are dead cards versus the happy Christmas land time where they work out. Draw overall seems really light in the deck and so I'm not sure how often you are filling up so much to need no hand size. That Reliquary Tower could go to High Market and the Thought Vessel to Hell's Caretaker (another sac method) or Hunted Witness (curve lowering trigger for Teysa). If you want it to be a rock of some sort, I would still play Everflowing Chalice first as it also gives you a mana dump or just go with Talisman of Hierarchy.

Do you have a Nightmare Shepherd laying around?

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.
