Obosh, the Preypiercer

Obosh, the Preypiercer

Legendary Creature — Hellion Horror

Companion — Your starting deck must contain only cards with odd converted mana costs and land cards. (You may reveal this card from outside the game before you start and declare it as your companion. If you do, your deck must follow the companion's restrictions. You may pay to put this companion from your sideboard to your hand at any time you could cast a sorcery. This action can't be interacted with or countered. You may only choose one companion for your deck before the start of each round.)

If a source you control with an odd converted mana cost would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals double that damage to that permanent or player instead.

I have never played Rule 0, I'm guessing your "partner" commander can be legendary or not right? Here are some cool pairings I don't consider too powerful.

Brion Stoutarm, would be a great way to sacrifice Evershrike when someone inevitably tries to kill/exile/ steal it, plus you gain life from it.

Ghen, Arcanum Weaver, way to recur some lost auras?

Obosh, the Preypiercer, probably a bit over powered.

Hofri Ghostforge, some synergy.

I love Heartless Hidetsugu + Obosh, the Preypiercer. The perfect way to win/lose.

I've built a couple of odd decks, my personal favorite is a naya superfriends deck, helmed by Gahiji, Honored One. Its not too out there, but the entire deck is built around Primal Surge, so there are no instants or sorceries at all.

Personally, I'd also think about a deckbuilding restriction, something that really makes you think about how you have to build the deck. Best example, I've got a wheel deck built around 2 partner commanders and a companion Tymna the Weaver/Kraum, Ludevic's Opus/Obosh, the Preypiercer All odd CMC in 4 colors with a wheel/combo based wincon.

For a weird recommendation/challenge: Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer/Sakashima of a Thousand Faces/Keruga, the Macrosage creatureless summoner tribal. All your spells and support makes creature tokens, but beyond the commanders there are no creatures in the deck.

Thank you, king-saproling. This would make a great replacement for Polluted Bonds , as Polluted Bonds causes life loss instead of damage and doesn't result in any doubling. Gratuitous Violence acts as a great backup for Obosh, the Preypiercer or as yet another multiplier to synergize with the combos in this deck. I'll update the mana base to reflect the change.

spcphd you only need to have cards will all odd mana value if you're using Obosh, the Preypiercer as your companion. There are no such restrictions when using it as your commander. You are still incentivized to have most of your damaging effects have odd mana values so they're doubled by obosh, but there are some cards with even mana value that are just to good to pass up.

No, I'm not using it for Vito, it's more for Archfiend's Vessel and demon, Garrison Cat and human, and Serrated Scorpion s. With using Lurrus of the Dream-Den bringing them back. I decided to add Obosh, the Preypiercer for spice.

The deck's whole concept is the interaction of Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose .

I would suggest removing the white from the deck as your splash cards don't seem to relevant to what you are doing. As amerika00 mentioned, your Obosh, the Preypiercer will not provide extra damage to your drain effects as they are life loss effects and not considered damage.

If you want a token build option then I would add the new Hunt for Specimens card to the main board to give you tokens that give you extra life when the die that will help Vito drain for more. With the addition of the Hunt spell you can add Pest Summoning to you sideboard to give you another token spell. This would unfortunately mean you would need to remove Obosh, the Preypiercer from your companion slot.

You may just want to add in more copies of Bastion of Remembrance to increase your passive drain on creature death. With this in mind you may want to include Woe Strider as a self recurring threat that gives you a sac outlet to allow you to kill your own creatures for death triggers at any time and help make sure you are getting value from Lurrus of the Dream-Den letting you loop creatures easier each turn.

Hope these quick suggestions help.
