KingKilvas all great suggestions, I probably wont consider Vraska, Scheming Gorgon as Keisen cant ping players and Im not really a huge fan of alternate win cons. Hooded Blightfang unfortunately doesn't do as much as expected. Goblin Sharpshooter is fantastic, but I'm just not willing to buy one, absolutely run the card if you are willing or have it already. Same thing for Quietus Spike and Vault of the Archangel. I originally had Call of the Death-Dweller in but I don't want to rely on Keisen being in the graveyard because if it gets countered that's a huge letdown. Reaper's Talisman should actually be in here, I originally didn't have it in because I didn't realize Keisen had vigilance. I appreciate the recommendations.

Looks like a fun deck! Have you considered Vraska, Scheming Gorgon as an alternate wincon? Hooded Blightfang, Blood Cultist, Goblin Sharpshooter, Call of the Death-Dweller, Viridian Longbow, Quietus Spike, Reaper's Talisman, and Vault of the Archangel all also fit your theme pretty well. Hope this helps!

I forgot to leave my list in the OP, oops! Lets see if I can remember the way to link it here, haha Old One Eye

The only real interesting tech might be Tombstone Stairwell, Horobi, Death's Wail, and mebe Quietus Spike.

Necrosis24 I really like the idea of Words of Waste! Pretty sneaky tech, and just the kind of shananigans I was hoping to hear about here! I dont think fat vanilla creatures like Fumiko are really worth the include though. It could be pretty great, but its sorta situational and requires a sizable field to be most effective. I looked at the other suggestions when I was first building my deck but I tried to keep the creature CMC 4 or less wherever possible. I did so to ensure that by the time karaz hits the board we will be guaranteed to have a few unsick attackers to immediately get some effect from them. The lower average costs also will allow us to take greater advantage of the card advantage that Karaz gives us, similar to how Edric works.

Frontier warmonger and Kardur were the only two of those that made the cut. Kardur because he 2 card combos with Conjurer's Closet :D

I do use EDHrec, but Im honestly not a big fan. All you get are the generic goodstuffs cards for the most part. You wont find sweet tech like words of waste or Horobi, Death's Wail on there!

Gleeock Haha, I see you like playing close to the edge! Although Endless Whispers is an old fav of mine, its far too unpredictably dangerous is most decks, haha The fact our opponents get to choose who gets the dead creatures just makes it super hard on us if we are winning and turns all boardwipes into 'only us' wipes. Too many times have I watched a boardwipe go off while whispers was out and be left with no creatures afterwards while my opponents just switched theirs around amongst themselves :P

The oath seems pretty cool though. A little bit of a double edged sword though too. I might have to test it out and see how it plays, thanks :)

Ive def got Curse of Op and Shiny Imp in the deck!

seshiro_of_the_orochi Bloodthirsty blade and disrupt decorum are definitely auto includes. I generally try and shy away from the more minor, single use effects in commander, but with the card advantage that Karaz offers it may be more feasible to run things like Trumpet blast, youre right. Zagras is pretty all-round good, as is hellish rebuke.

If a player attacks with an Archfiend of Despair that is equipped with Quietus Spike and successfully deals damage, with the damaged player lose all of their life at the end of the turn?

This is a fantastic Boros pairing and brew. If you’re deliberately picking budget options then please ignore these recs, but off first glance I’d advise Inventors' Fair , Sigarda's Aid , Shadowspear , Auramancer , Steelshaper's Gift (I see your Open the Armory )... Janky recs? Hot Soup , Blight Sickle , Quietus Spike , Infiltration Lens , Saheeli's Directive , and Prowler's Helm .

You have probably thought of these before and I’m not suggesting all should be added. I’m a Boros guy at heart and like to get the back of other Boros players! I have a Jor-Kadeen deck I love and uses most of te aforementioned pieces.

By the way, how does your ramp do?

Again sweet deck! Cheers

Have you ever tought about putting Quietus Spike in the deck?

It pairs extremely well with unblockables and can also make you able to play mind games with the opponent. Will he keep his Path to Exile for the unblockable that will remove half his life or the eventual ninja that will come out? Or will it fizzle because of that pesky ninjutsu?
