Hello I have a similar deck, if you want to take a look: Rakdos Fractions Besides your maybeboard, I would suggest adding: Goblin Game, Blood Tribute, Heartless Hidetsugu, Fraying Omnipotence

Meaner cards: Death Cloud, Pox

Players hate land destruction, so use with caution!

Heliogabale on Tergrid's Asylum

Hello,

I see you went from 122 to 103, I hope I woon't suggest cards you have already considered.

First of all you were asking for cuts, so here is my take on that:

Snuff Out and Defile are a little bit on the low end of 1 for 1 value in my opinion. Divest and Thoughtseize are also very single-use. Faith of the Devoted seems slow and expensive. I don't see much value to Temple Bell in here. I am not sure I would use a spot for Crucible of Worlds either.

I would add Pox , Raiders' Wake and Fleshbag Marauder . If this was my deck I would definitely run Hypnotic Specter . A Deserted Temple completes the Urborg+Cabal Coffers combo.

Hope this helps!

Nice work bro, I can smell the fear while reading your decklist. I'm thinking about massive sacrifice spells that you might wanna try, like Pox or All Is Dust, even if you sacrifice your commander with any of them you still keep your opponents cards.

See you around <3

TriusMalarky on First ever EDH deck... help?

10 months ago

When it comes to EDH, I like to use a 5-point building strategy. This includes

  • Lands(largely fixing)

  • Ramp(the higher power stuff)

  • Card draw

  • Win Condition

  • Interaction

Every card in your deck should be in one of those 5 slots. Additionally, I consider cards like Fellwar Stone, Signets, Talismans and Arcane Signet to fit largely in the 'land' slot. They're there for ramp, yes, but they're also largely there for color fixing.

Also, your win condition should be fairly compact. You can take a combo route, or you can have a couple specific cards that can win the game on their own or with a little support.

In discard themes . . . you don't get all that much. All the discard payoffs that help in other formats are too slow in EDH.

So I'd take the Pox plan -- use Smallpox, Pox, Hymn to Tourach, Wrench Mind and Vicious Rumors to throttle your opponent's hands. Use spells like Deafening Silence, Rule of Law, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Leonin Arbiter and Aven Mindcensor to prevent your opponents from getting back on their feet. Then, hit them with some win con of your choice. Make it quick, though, because they will eventually get out of your lock and come for your throat.

DrukenReaps on Decks you want to make...

Decks you want to make... But don't because your friends might not play anymore.

Do you have any like that?

Thanks to current spoilers I do. So don't follow this link unless you are ok with a spoiler Tergrid's Orthophobia.

The deck could use a bit of help. Mostly looking for a few decent ways to make infinite black mana, or infinite colorless mana then turn it into black mana. Other suggestions welcome too.

I just don't know if I'm willing to bring a deck that wants Pox so badly to a table, lmao.

Things I like

Considering

Probably not...

I've played a small set of games with the deck now. It had impact on the game. Majority of creatures cast in the deck didn't feel of consequence when standing alone. I'm investigating more ways to gain life but also add "target player gains life" to abuse Tainted Remedy against non-life gain decks that just ignore it when it hits the field. Spells like Swords to Plowshares.
