Hey, Worldgorger Dragon combo could replace Iona. Emergence Zone could replace Sanctuary. Reanimation is a good secondary strategy with Kaalia and reanimation is what enablers Worldgorger combo. Bogardan Hellkite can be a win condition with the Worldgorger combo and Kaalia can cheat Hellkite onto the battlefield. The Worldgorger combo would give you an alternative way to win the game which has synergy with Kaalia and strategies you want to play with Kaalia.

Cards to consider adding for Worldgorger combo:

Other cards to consider adding:

You could upgrade some threats with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Doom Whisperer.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Seraph Sanctuary
  • Dragonskull Summit
  • Clifftop Retreat
  • Isolated Chapel
  • Iona, Shield of Emeria
  • Archfiend of Depravity
  • Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
  • Lord of the Void
  • Angelic Arbiter
  • Baneslayer Angel
  • Merciless Eviction
  • Duelist's Heritage
  • Strionic Resonator
  • Ghostway
  • Utter End

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice you're welcome. The most important card in my opinion to add is Necropotence. Paying life to pump Greven and put cards into your hand is major value. Necro is much better here than Arena for not much more in price. Early game ramp and draw is important because Greven is a five drop. Being a five drop and your deck is built around Greven could be problematic and too slow without more early game ramp.

Another idea for early game plays is more enablers for reanimation to get Krrik onto the battlefield to abuse Phyrexian mana with Greven or Kokusho to gain life. Buried Alive, Entomb, Faithless Looting, Thrill of Possibility. These cards are also good with Anger as a haste enabler for Greven. Greven being a five drop makes haste helpful to attack and at least get some draw value from him the turn you play him.

You're right you want to some what balance life loss with life gain because you want freedom to pay life to get the most out of Greven and Phyrexian mana with Krrik. I would have a higher amount of life loss cards than life gain cards. I don't think you need a lot cards that can gain you life just efficient cards. In my opinion spells that can give Greven lifelink as a one spot deal are not worth including.

Equipment, creatures who gain you life, static abilities, auras are better since they can be repeatable. Shadowspear and Basilisk Collar seem pretty powerful for low mana cost with Greven. Vampiric Link is a one mana aura for lifelink. Kokusho and Gray Merchant of Asphodel are good life gaining sources when you have multiple opponents. Greven can sac and Phyrexian Reclamation can repeatably recur these creatures to do it again.

Hey, Treasonous Ogre is a source of life lose that's also ramp. Necropotence, pay any amount of life and put that many cards into your hand. Heartless Hidetsugu, each player loses half of their life for a huge Greven attack that will most likely kill an opponent. Phyrexian Reclamation pay life to recur creatures. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, pay life to draw cards and Temple of Aclazotz is Diamond Valley.

Manabarbs players lose life when they tap lands. Phyrexian Purge, pay life to target and destroy potential blockers. Bolas's Citadel, lose life to cast cards. Dreadhorde Invasion, lose life for token that can grow in power to sac to Greven. Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper and Read the Bones, lose life to draw cards.

Castle Locthwain, draw a card and lose life. Hall of the Bandit Lord, pay life and give Greven haste. Sulfurous Springs, Rakdos Pain land. Ramunap Ruins and Ifnir Deadlands, pay life to make mana.

Shadowspear, trample and lifelink combination is good with Greven. Arcane Signet and Talisman of Indulgence are two other Rakdos two drop mana rocks. Dark Ritual is good ramp in black.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Yawgmoth.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Phyrexian Reclamation to keep recurring Gray can be another budget win condition. Yawgmoth can be an enabler for Gray + Reclamation because he can keep sacing Gray. Gray is a very good budget card for mono black in multiplayer Commander where you'll have many opponents. Reclamation's repeatable recursion can be helpful with the strategy of sacing creatures and can recur at instant speed. Gray and Reclamation could replace Cordial Vampire and Palace Siege.

Skirsdag High Priest is an underrated budget card in multiplayer Commander. Repeatable morbid can give you a lot of value, good with token strategies. Tap 1/1 tokens to make 5/5 flying beaters. Yawgmoth can be an enabler to activate morbid at instant speed. The nice thing about morbid in multiplayer Commander is it can be activated when any creature dies which includes an opponents creature on any turn. Priest could replace Manakin.

Dark Ritual is a staple card for black. Plaguecrafter is excellent in multiplayer Commander. With 30x Swamps Mutilate has great scalability. Victimize is powerful budget reanimation. These cards could replace Vona's Hunger, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Songs of the Damned, Never/Return.

Everflowing Chalice and Prismatic Lens could replace Corrupted Grafstone and Manalith. You don't need all mana rocks to make black mana since you have 30x Swamps. Black mana shouldn't be a problem, mana rocks just need to make mana for ramp and that mana is fine as colorless. Chalice can be proliferated which is a big bonus.

Good luck with your deck.

Thornbite Staff. Absulutely nuts with Marrow-Gnawer. Besides that the deck looks pretty sweet. I'd personally cut Patron of the Nezumi for maybe another sac outlet to keep Skullclamp usable after getting a lord effect and and switch Graveshifter for Phyrexian Reclamation for repeatable recursion.
