Psychosis Crawler

Artifact Creature — Horror

Psychosis Crawler's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in your hand.

Whenever you draw a card, each opponent loses 1 life.

Dr3vvn45ty I can appreciate that. In my play testing I found that you are correct about the Tower. I wanted to run effects that would benefit from having half my library in my hand like Myojin of Life's Web , Inner Calm, Outer Strength , and Scent of Ivy , but in the end there were not enough of these benefits and Kruphix, God of Horizons would be a better commander for that anyway due to blue.

This is my decklist at the moment, and I would appreciate your feedback on what are often dead cards in your view (I have not been able to play against real opponents yet). Please keep in mind that I am not playing the infinite mana combos, so my goal is to stomp face with a backup Psychosis Crawler for pesty Spore Frog shenanigans in my play group.

Instead of Psychosis Crawler , you might try Awaken the Erstwhile . It also stop any answers the opponent might have, since it makes them discard their hand.

FormOverFunction: Not sure how you missed it but Psychosis Crawler was already in the deck lol. Not seeing how psychic corrosion could fit in this deck. Will be checking out your deck shortly.

Check out my Torture! Deck for ideas, like Psychic Corrosion and Psychosis Crawler for when you’re drawing your card. Love the non-standard Nekusar decks!

All of these cards work well when you are running basically just mountains, running blue splits their power, and using non basics reduces their effectiveness even further. Downhill Charge , Granite Grip , and Seismic Strike .

These cards are ok, but don’t really work with your primary concept. Titan's Strength I like this for the scry, and if it drew a card it’d be fine, but as a combat trick it’s pretty meh. Kavu Scout is at most a 2/2 for two in this deck. Kraken's Eye is pretty passive life gain, but it’s not going to win the game for you, and it is pretty unlikely to save you too (it does improve with some of the buy back spells I list later). The problem with Akroan Crusader is that if we cut the combat tricks this card becomes way weaker, and even with the tricks, it’s not got a high likelihood of having both at the same time. Why would we run that when we can run cards like Crackling Drake ?

Strider Harness is good, but it is over costed for what it does.

These cards are neat, but there are better options that are better suited to what you are trying to do. Lava Axe , and Warbringer .

Whisk Away I’m not loving this card, it is alright. It’s just low bang for the buck.

As for some cards that might help things, the issue I see is that your plan has a lot of draw, and some control, but not a lot of ways to win. As it is your commander is basically the only way you have of making use of the draw, out side of trying to win with Jace. Winning with Jace is gonna be tough cause you have to draw him, and then mill through your deck, it is possible just hard. So most of the suggestions are cards that work well with casting a lot of draw spells, or removal. This makes your plan of drawing a lot of cards do something other than drawing a lot of cards. Just like your commander they are all going to do something when you draw, or cast a spell. Talrand, Sky Summoner , Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , Murmuring Mystic , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , Guttersnipe , and Psychosis Crawler are all great for your deck.

You’ve got a bunch of good draw, but you missed a few older cards that are incredible like Arcanis the Omnipotent , Brainstorm , Opt , Treasure Cruise , and Faithless Looting .

Swarm Intelligence is great for casting a lot of spells.

A thing that might happen is running out of gas. So cards that give repeated use like flashback and buy back are huge. They mean you’ll always have something to do, and offer more value because of your cards that trigger on spell cast, or card draw. Some good examples include Mystic Retrieval , Fanning the Flames , Whispers of the Muse , Shattering Pulse , and though it is a little bit more expensive Capsize which is incredibly powerful and super annoying for other people to deal with if they can’t outright counter it.

AEtherize is just a super good card for the deck.

Your deck should basically just draw a whole lot of cards, and having the mana to play them is super important. I’d likely look at increasing the number of mana rocks (artifacts that make mana) in there, and making sure that you’re never hurting for your second color. Some solid suggestions for that are Izzet Signet , Izzet Cluestone , Commander's Sphere , Izzet Boilerworks , Terramorphic Expanse , Desolate Lighthouse , and Memorial to Genius is just great for your draw plan.

Psychic Corrosion seems like an excellent win condition for your deck. Psychosis Crawler , Jace's Erasure , and Sphinx's Tutelage can fulfill much the same function.

Psychosis Crawler might work too i know id doesn't necessarily win, but it provides damage that can really add up, worth testing but not an auto include.
