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.

Ooh yeah I forgot about him. He partners well with Obosh, the Preypiercer. If my math is correct, Lightning Bolt would be doubled to 6, with Tor dealing an additional 1. Since he is also odd, that 1 is doubled to 2. So now you are at 8 total damage.

But, Tor also deals 2 for the instant, which is doubled to 4.

So resolving a Lightning Bolt is going to cause a total of 12 damage, all in when the dust settles.

(As for Yarlok, that was never meant to be involved with infect; Just a "weird" one to add to the list.)

Out: Cabal Coffers

In: Swamp

Two notes: One, Cabal Coffers doesn't work well in this deck due to how I have my mana base set up - so its out. Two, Descent into Avernus with Obosh, the Preypiercer out is egregiously fun. I had it deal 24 damage on upkeep at one point! I love how this deck is evolving, and my playgroup actually doesn't hate it! Haha.

Is Obosh, the Preypiercer worth it/viable in Drop focused Zoo Decks?

Been looking through my old decks and found the core to my zoo deck and was looking to see how I could make it more Up-to-Date now that things like Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Collector Ouphe exist now.

Obosh, the Preypiercer caught my attention for seemingly HUGE payoff but im wondering if it is actually castable in Zoo... I dont have a whole lot of expirience with running or even interacting with companions... but paying to get it into hand then paying the nesessary doenst seem reachable. I know things like Utopia Sprawl and Arbor Elf can help but I have concerns that it would hurt more than help the hyper=agressive strategy.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this matter?

Out: Sarevok, Deathbringer and Popular Entertainer

In: Rakdos Charm and Drain Life

Swapped out Sarevok and the background as commander to have Obosh, the Preypiercer come in and give it a shot.

With Dungeons & Dragons: Baldur's Gate on the horizon, I found a card that looks sneakily fun to be placed into the deck: Descent into Avernus! I am hopeful this card has a few functions:

  1. The benefits it brings to our opponents has some political benefits
  2. The treasures help with our own mana ramp
  3. It brings the pain with some amplify combo pieces on the board such as Obosh, the Preypiercer or Furnace of Rath.

This will replace Pain Magnification for testing.

I just want to point out that you could do a Rakdos commander deck and have both your pain/punishment as well as lifegain matters in the same deck.

As you already stated, Mogis would have Tobran in his 99. Why not Vito and other lifegain shenanigans?

Cards like Torbran, Thane of Red Fell or Brash Taunter using its fight ability while Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose activated or anything that does big damage equipped with stuff like Basilisk Collar, Batterskull, Shadowspear, Whip of Erebos, and Mask of Griselbrand.

You keep tutors, wheels and burn. You keep synergy with Unspeakable Symbol, Crypt Rats, Aetherflux Reservoir and even Blood Tribute.

I like the sound of a Tobran/Vito deck with say Obosh, the Preypiercer as your commander? Or keep Mogis for his inevitability.
