Price of Fame

Instant

This spell costs less to cast if it targets a legendary creature.

Destroy target creature.

Surveil 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest on top of your library in any order.)

Checky on Big Problems Require The Maddest Solutions

DreadKhan I have been asking with my most destructive friends, who help me with my most hateful decks like this one, and we have seen that Snuff Out is hard to cast for the alternative cost since I only run like 8 swamps, and all the MLD I run it's even harder, and the Price of Fame is so useful bc of the big and flyer commanders I'm used to see, and the surveil is a great selection. For the moment I will not put it inside. But the Phyrexian Purge, they have said that it's a very good option, but what you were saying with the 3 dmg wraths, my playgroup is more like swarm decks, small creatures rather than big beefy 8/8 or something, so the 3 dmg wraths are pretty good, and I have consulted the option of Fire Covenant, but the instant speed and the mana less to kill all the 2/2 and 1/1 is better than 3 life per creature. I have very few matchups where purge is better than fire covenant. I thought the swap for Last One Standing, but it's still in process of studying. Very helpful the ideas and I appreciate them a lot bud :)

You could run Snuff Out over Price of Fame I suspect, I feel like if you have enough less picky removal it will rarely be a problem. For Phyrexian Purge, I wonder about one of those '3 damage wipes', I feel like Purge is a better selective wipe if you for some reason want someone to have creatures on board still, presumably to deal with whomever used to be the archenemy for you idk how political your groups get. I think Purge is probably a lot better than Fire Covenant if people run lots of beefy creatures in your area. If your group has zero politics, Necromantic Selection is pretty hilarious, having the only creature, and it being the best creature, is usually a good position to be in if everyone is purely in free-for-all mode.

needs more cheap targeted removal ala Heartless Act and Doom Blade . I'm a huge fan of Price of Fame in black because it can be 2 mana and also lets you surveil 2 which can be key to find more cards. Since you're more of an agro deck an early Fatal Push or Eliminate could work really well. Forever Young might also be a good inclusion

Looks like fun! What kinds of groups are you playing against? The landbase is always a good place to start, I'd recommend Path of Ancestry over the guildgate and Bojuka Bog / Scavenger Grounds if anyone in your playgroup interacts with graveyards. There's also plenty of great counterspell options out there, Didn't Say Please is strictly better than cancel here, but there's also SwanSong and Drown in the Loch , both of which are pretty powerful in Commander. Removal is also important to consider, there's a bunch of great kill spells that are better than Murder , but they'll depend on your playgroup. Go for the Throat , Price of Fame , Doom Blade , Spark Harvest , Heartless Act , selected based on what kinds of decks you play against. If you're going full zombie-ball, I'd recommend Coat of Arms as a duplicate Door of Destinies . If budget isn't an issue, there's Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , which is a great group-buff and recursion engine, and Patriarch's Bidding , which can give you a huge army really quick, so long as you don't have any other tribal players at the table, but if you keep their graveyards cleaned out it shouldn't be an issue.

Testing Mystic Reflection over Price of Fame here -- even if it's useful for a shorter window of time, I think it's a better answer for commanders, it can lock things down as effectively as Oko...

And also I suspect it'll enable new combo lines like casting Wake the Dead into five copies of Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the win :3

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:
