@Caerwyn - I apologize, I didnt realize there were deck help forums for individual formats.

@Lanzo493 - Do you think Doomsday and Necropotence slot in here? Additional cards I pulled out of my collection with potential include: Pain Seer, Disciple of Deceit, Sphere of the Suns, Reason / Believe, Street Wraith, Raise Dead, Plunge into Darkness, Phantasmal Image, Siren Stormtamer, Commune with Nature, and Reclaim.

StopShot & zapyourtumor going to try Unholy Heat and see how it does. Agreed it’s better than Night's Whisper. Never head of Plunge into Darkness before, but I’ll be looking into it. Was thinking of squeezing in Terminate into the sideboard

I agree with zapyourtumor, Night's Whisper feels clunky for what you want from it. I would instead try getting value from running Flamebreak , as its a boardwipe that also hurts both you and you opponent and your Dragon's Rage Channeler 's will bypass it if you have Delirium. Your mana base also seems capable for it, but if those Swamps become a problem I'd swap one for a Blackcleave Cliffs .

If you really want the extra card draw I'd suggest switching it for Footfall Crater instead, as it provides another card type you can put in the grave for delirium or another source of haste and trample for your beaters. If the life loss and card draw is essential you should run Plunge into Darkness as a direct upgrade from Night's Whisper since there's more flexibility to playing it at instant speed (especially during the combat step) and you can even set how much life you want to lose from it while being able to dig even deeper.

Personally, I like Plunge into Darkness with a side of Angel's Grace , but I'm usually more Modern-inspired. And I don't own your suggestion, so there's that...

Yup I like this deck, I had debated about making this deck myself but held back because I had made 2 decks prior that used similar tech to what I was thinking The kiss of Judas and Sunset of the king

In terms of cards I would keep in mind of Plunge into Darkness , Gideon of the Trials and Spoils of the Vault while you are playing with life. Stunning Reversal might also be interesting

I am running the Double Titan list right now and I pay 10-20 life for Plunge into Darkness , depending on how desperate I am at that moment in time.

Doom Whisperer is a good card for paying life and filling your graveyard. Hopefully you find Second Chance in the first 78 cards (Surveil 2, times 39 life, not including the approx. 15 cards drawn to get to that point in the game).

The other good ones for setting this up are Necropotence, Plunge into Darkness, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded.

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.
