asparling_tappedout on First to suffer: a deck for experimenting cards

3 weeks ago

Hmm. I have a Kagemaro, First to Suffer deck (currently private as I'm forever tweaking it), but it's fundamentally different from yours. Kagemaro is the only creature in the whole deck...

Kagemaro, First to Suffer is a board wipe on a stick. In an ideal game you'll be sending oodles of things to your opponents' graveyards. You might look to Rise of the Dark Realms rather than Exsanguinate as a finisher, seeing as you're likely going to be wiping your own board as well as your opponents'.

Best card printed lately for Kagemaro, First to Suffer is Peer into the Abyss , and it's still relatively cheap. I'd run Spellbook in addition to Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower if you're going to go that route however.

If you want to go down the pricier side of things... Hatred is a great means of closing out a game in mono black. Board wipe with your commander then weaponize your life total to swing in for the win.

I only play mono black, but rarely do I play creature heavy decks... so take my advice with a grain of salt.

Cut temple of false for Reliquary Tower - Synergy with Necropotence + Venser Journal

Given your deck is based on your commander, Imp's Mischief - Redirect targetted removal, counterspells, extra turns, draw, etc.... very powerful utility

Cut the umbral mantle, I see the combo but for it to just combo with 1 card and have little/no outside use makes it unsynergystic.

Cut rhystic tutor for Diabolic Tutor . Seriously, not having your spell countered, be a late game dead card and provide card disadvantage is not worth the 1 less mana.

Peer into the Abyss and the other card they printed (9 mana sorcerry, switch life totals, then make a demon). I forgot the name. Would work well in this kind of deck with lifeloss.

You forgot to mention exquisite blood + Sanguine bond combo in description

Hey FelixMortem, I like your build! I use Chainer in my K’rrik deck in a combo with Gravecrawler , Carrion Feeder , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . It wouldn’t hurt cutting a few basics to add the Crawler, Aetherflux Reservoir to gain life with several of your combos, and while you’re at it, you could even throw in Bolas's Citadel and Sensei's Divining Top for another infinite combo. I get that you have a lot of high CMC cards so you may not want to run Citadel, but it’s worth mentioning.

You could also benefit from the added speed of Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond , Lion's Eye Diamond , Lotus Petal , Jet Medallion , Dark Ritual , and Cabal Ritual . You may eventually be able to generate infinite mana with combos, but these basic ramp cards will really help with the early game.

Another idea is to run Peer into the Abyss so you are very likely to draw into a combo on your turn.

There’s also good-ol Mike and Trike, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion or Walking Ballista , to deal infinite damage. Victimize is the way to put them both on the battlefield at once.

Minousmancer Ack! Mono black would probablyyyyy be more consistent but I can't not put Smothering Tithe in, i love it too much. Gray Merchant of Asphodel would be good but what would you suggest I change around to make space for it? (Aside from Smothering Tithe ). I think having some good creature removal would be good, I'm definitely going to put that on a sideboard. Swap with Duress and maybe 1 or 2 Hymn to Tourach when needed. 4x Peer into the Abyss > 3x? What would I change around to make that viable? Also, thank you for the suggestions!
