jaymc1130 would you mind elaborating on how the Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar + Priest of Gix / Priest of Urabrask uses lyzolda to win?

Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar + Priest of Gix / Priest of Urabrask is one combo that utilizes the commander to translate to a win.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Plague Belcher is one combo that does not require the commander to translate to a win.

Neither should be particularly pricey (though Phyrexian Alter is not really a card I would consider "budget") and both are competitively capable set ups.

Black always has access to the Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong combo as well.

May I suggest Crypt Rats from Visions as a possible boardwipe? Combos nicely with Scythe of the Wretched aswell and even goes infinite with Priest of Gix from Urza's saga.

Well, a good classic card for storm decks is Aetherflux Reservoir and you aren't running a Bolas's Citadel which imo is too good to pass up. Also some bombs in this deck is Endless Cockroaches , Cloudstone Curio , Ayara, First of Locthwain and Priest of Gix . Demon's Disciple and Plaguecrafter are also good cards, can't have too many Fleshbag Marauder effects.

I also enjoyed playing Painful Quandary , Smokestack , Descent into Madness Bitterblossom and Contamination when I built Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip would probably fit here too.

This commander I used as a sac stax deck with a storm win con, Exsanguinate is another win con you can use for this deck.

Good luck, hope your play group keeps playing with you haha

     ichibancho: That's a nice looking deck list! The only hangup I have is that you're only running 30 lands. Nothing in your deck is terribly expensive to cast, I think 5 being the highest CMC. You've got some ramp creatures and spells that I think are kind of redundant given the low casting cost of the deck. More often than not I think you'd prefer to draw a land than Priest of Gix . Same goes for Land Tax & Tithe . All great spells in their own right, but generally speaking I think hitting land drops every turn is going to be better for the deck's performance. I'd aim for 34 or 35 lands. =)

     Stuff like Night's Whisper and Village Rites is okay too, but you would get considerably more value out of something like a Midnight Reaper , Phyrexian Arena or even Relic Vial .

     There's a few creatures in there I wouldn't bother with. Daru Spiritualist , Shaman en-Kor and Geralf's Messenger are all places I'd be looking to add lands or upgrades. With Conspiracy out Geralf's Messenger is pretty sick value, but to me that's not enough of a reason to keep him. If you're looking for the life-loss I'd suggest Zulaport Cutthroat or Bastion of Remembrance .

     I tried to build this deck to function competently without Orah in play. Especially if you're winning the game, your opponents are definitely going to try to keep your Commander off the board. Sometimes I am a bit short on Clerics, but because the deck doesn't hinge on Orah's ability it has never really been a problem. One game in particular I was kind of frustrated that I couldn't hit a 3 drop Cleric for combo chains, but I ended up bleeding my opponents out with Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Zulaport Cutthroat haha, so it really depends on how you play the game out more than the tools you're drawing. =)

I would have never thought to find such a comment like this, it's A M A Z I N G. I really like your support on this project and I would love to create a competitive deck together.

Some of the combos you mentioned are really amazing, like the one with Priest of Gix and the Mirage Mirror one.

Unfortunatly I don't work yet, so I can't really have a deck with Moxes, 15 Fetch Lands and OP Mana Artifacts, but we can build one not caring for the price just to see if it will be competitive or not

I think some choises I made were really poor, like Panharmonicon or Far Wanderings.

Others, instead, need some explanation:

-Witchbane Orb is needed in my deck because in my playgroup people will 100% try to Bojuka Bog or try to Flash in a Tormod's Crypt when the Commander is being casted ( happened to me once when I was trying to cast a Kathril, Aspect Warper who was going to become a 26/26 with 13 different abilities....)

-Vessel of Nascency will trigger Delirum Turn 2 in 90% on the times it is in my starting hand, also Jarad's Orders can tutor only creatures, so Final Parting is faaar better for 1 more mana

-Blood for Bones has one of the most intricated rulings I've ever seen, with it you can sacrifice a creature and then return that same creature you sacrificed back to the battlefield, creating a card that can "Blink" in Black and that also returns a creature into your hand from the graveyard

I don't really like the Zendikar Dual Lands, but Bala Ged Recovery  Flip is too good.

Another thing, I don't think that attacking with spiders is a good idea, my Deck can create a bunch of them in a turn, but i would rather win with them with a combo then wait for a full rotation (and all my friends at the LGS have at least 2 boardwipes per deck) to attack.

This deck doesn't draw, you're right, but it mills itself and then returns to hand important combo pieces from the graveyard, but we can try to put in a Shamanic Revelation and other cool drawing cards and see what happens

Entomb is better than Buried Alive for the same reason of Jarad's Orders, and you could have a Turn 1 Razaketh, the Foulblooded with Dark Ritual and Reanimate

Let me now what you think, I'm really excited about this project
