Phyrexian Rager Discussion

Black:

  • blackblade's bite -> this might as well read B:Exile target creature.
  • dark draining -> powerful at that mana cost, and any target to boot.
  • davriel -> looks to be incredibly weak. It is graveyard hate, but wants to cast non-creature spells with its second ability, but the only thing you want to hate is creatures, since those come back easily...
  • defiled anthem -> sure, but this is incredibly hard to actually trigger and will create memory issues.
  • duskmantle shade -> shades usually have the black firebreathing effect, eg Liliana's Shade
  • eliminate - white has the exact same card, except the lose two life clause. Why?
  • festerspawn - better than existing options by a mile. Phyrexian Rager feels shame.
  • hired hit - why does this one destroy the creature, while the previous ones exiled it?
  • hungering shadow -> ninjutsu and devour is an interesting combo, but this is a very weak card.
  • memory -> why do these cost 5 mana? these are so limited in application.
  • mind scourer -> this can end games on turn 3.
  • Moonglove-Blade Assassin -> a 4/3 for 5 mana with basically super Murder attached to it?
  • Ominous Form -> if it wasn't for the OP removal to deal with this, it would be too powerful. It probably still is.
  • Pain -> blue and white did not have something similar, so it is not a cycle. This is quite powerful and warps the game around it.
  • psionic lashing -> do not do this. suprise "I win" cards are not a good idea. Though, if you target yourself, you kill yourself, which is a different application.
  • return journey -> very cool design!
  • rotgrub swarm -> 1/1 for 1 mana that you will never play on turn 1. Probably not a good idea.
  • rotplague -> too powerful for a one-sided card.
  • something wicked -> when would you ever choose the first option on this overcosted Raise Dead ?
  • soul pillage -> when would you ever choose the first option on the above when this card exists?
  • will rot -> not a black effect.
  • zulaport alley-watcher -> where is there a city with alleys on Zendikar?

Hey Relyt144 this deck isn't standard legal, probably belongs in the casual hub.

Other than that, you could add some Cabal Stronghold 's and Crypt Ghast 's to help you ramp (or Cabal Coffers if you have the budget for it).

Also, taking out a few 5-7 drops in favor of a few more 1-3 drops could help your mana curve. I would recommend Duress and Read the Bones and Phyrexian Rager and Doomed Dissenter

Hope this helps!

Altoman, your suggestions are valid and I appreciate them, but I believe you're not seeing a couple aspects of the deck I would like to discuss with you. First this is not intended to be a Turbo/all in version but rather a more resilient/slow version than typical RB strategies. Hence the lack of Dragon Breath, Stinkweed could join the list though, since it's still a nice recurrable blocker with enough power to fuel your gy all by himself (actually with a little help from symmetrical discard).
Putrid imp doesn't seem powerful nor resilient and depending on threshold is tricky. I'd rather play Vampire Hounds if I wanted something like that.

Predatory nightstalker is mainly there as an edict effect on a body, which can counter exhume's downside by himself. But I do believe 4 might be too many, and I probably can cut at least two of them. I consider him to be something like Phyrexian Rager or Chittering Rats , this is to say, a valuable and recurrable effect which happens to have a body which can block or even get some damage through, rather than focusing on his stats.

And finally, of the 14 big guys I'm playing many of them have cycling which is relevant to get them to the gy and get your reanimation spells to your hand. Notice there isn't another way to draw cards on the deck like Night's Whisper . The reason is taking full advantage/value of the cycling package, including Horror of the Broken Lands . So you cycle, get another card, reanimate the guy you cycled and pump HOTBL on an ideal scenario.

Now that I have time

Filigree Familiar Seems off plan. I don't think it does what you think.

Same with Wirewood Savage

Cantrip/Tutor Creatures not in the deck

Spellseeker

Recruiter of the Guard

Dusk Legion Zealot

Bonded Fetch

Champion of Wits

Phyrexian Rager

Rogue Refiner

Generous Stray

Whirlpool Rider

Coiling Oracle

Carven Caryatid

Shardless Agent

I particularly Recommend Recruiter since it is an instant win with aluren if you run like 1 more piece.

I would say to look at pauper and copy a few things - An UB control deck is very possible, but you need the right shell. Unearth + Phyrexian Rager , Undying Evil or Abnormal Endurance + Augur of Skulls or Mulldrifter to get ahead on cards.

Hey SamsWrath. I hadn't thought about Bob! I like the idea of draw strapped onto a creature given Grenzo's obvious strengths. Also considering Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Phyrexian Rager.

win conditions NEED HELP

If the link didn't work(im new in the site)

https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/win-conditions-need-help/

love playing with this deck But i feel a big lack of creatures in the early game, and in the late game i Don't have threatening creatures

Right now, I have 6 slots im thinking about changing: Savage Ventmaw for a better dragon that fits well in my deck. Chromatic Lantern Ring of Valkas Filigree Familiar Phyrexian Rager Geist of the Archives if able, i would like to change geist for something with better stats, but also has a somewhat consistent scry abilitie.

If you have any other sugestions other than cretures, feel free to let me know, the deck is open to change

Card draw etb triggers you dont have in there: Baleful Strix Wall of Omens Phyrexian Rager

Also with Aminatou's top deck manipulation i would advise running Magus of the Future and Future Sight alongside some scry enablers or top deck manipulation if you cant swing for sensei's top and scroll rack. Druidic Satchel is a great value piece i like to run
