How does Spirit Link combo with Pestilence?

vasarto77 on Atraxa "pandemic" themed deck

5 days ago

I wanna make a Atraxa deck, but themed on the concept of all the cards "or as many cards as I can" that has the name of the card reference Disease, pandemics, quarantines, Lock downs etc. I think from another post I made before I got the idea to make a deck from this along with some other similar related posts I have a good start, but would also like to ask for suggestions for what might be good for not just this theme, but a good deck in general.

So far I have Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as my commander since I wanted to use both Soul Link and Pestilence as a combo in the deck which is why I changed my mind about doing a Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon deck since Atraxa would open up the white I needed for Spirit link and also gives me access to Green which is commanders second strongest color next to also giving me Blue.

Cards I have in mind so far are Pox Spread the Sickness Quarantine Field Contamination Blightsteel Colossus Blighted Agent as well as all the other best infect creatures out there I can find. Engineered Plague Plague Wind Small Pox as a maybe? Then of course staples like the mana rocks and lands I will need. And of course I am going to do a little proliferating as well.

I agree with maxon about wanting to have a positive theme for such a product, but I am very surprised that no one has yet mentioned Pestilence or Pestilence Demon.

Demonic Hordes , Living Wall , Season of the Witch , and Pestilence are some creepy cards that might help with your deck horror theme

multimedia on Karlov "Aristocrat"

Hey, new Shadowspear is very good with Karlov. Lifelink so he can grow himself and trample to help to break through opponents ground defenses. Shielded by Faith can protect Karlov. Open the Armory is worth adding to tutor for one of these cards.

Sun Droplet is good with Karlov in multiplayer Commander since you can remove a counter from it during each opponents turn and your own. With more opponents more damage can be done to you. Caves of Koilos, Talisman of Hierarchy, Pestilence are cards that do damage to yourself which puts counters on Droplet.

Pestilence can be some major tech with Karlov since you control how much black mana thus damage you do with it. Life gain offsets the damage you do to yourself, it can kill your own creatures/opponents creature for the aristocrat strategy and Karlov can get huge which can keep him alive through the damage as well as keep a creature on the battlefield.

Ranger of Eos has many two creatures to tutor for especially Soul Warden/Soul's Attendant, important cards to have on the battlefield with Karlov. Heliod's Intervention is a powerful instant effect for white in Commander. Well of Lost Dreams repeatable draw when you gain life. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip is a repeatable way to draw using life. These enchantments are nice have when you're gaining so much life.

Good luck with your deck.

Daedalus19876 on Torment of the Underworld: Kroxa EDH [PRIMER]

BubbRubb4Real: We don't really need Torment, because 1) the triggers from Kroxa's ETB already drain people pretty well, and 2) we can just lead into Worldgorger combo from the Breach path.

mccabej140: I'll think on Tectonic Reformation! But honestly, the problem here is frequently too FEW lands, not too many... Pestilence is pretty awesome, but depends on meta. I can't run Urborg in this list, though, since there's a few decks in my meta that abuse it far better than I can.

Here's some cards I've seen and thought were worth considering.

Tectonic Reformation- extra self discard effect, filters lands, fills the graveyard and pairs nicely with Crucible of Worlds

Pestilence- reusable board control and lowers opponents life totals. A little colour intensive though. I'd add a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth if I decided to play this. Works particularly well if Kroxa is on the board.

very much considering building this deck! What are your thoughts on adding in a Pestilence/Pyrohemia/Thrashing Wumpus/Pestilence Demon to work in tandem with Vigor?
