Xantcha is so rad. Have you considered Heartstone? It would make it easier for everybody to use her draw ability.

These might interest you too: Revel in Riches, Unholy Indenture, Minion's Return, Blessing of Leeches, Soul Channeling, Visions of Brutality, Treacherous Link, Ragged Veins, Binding Agony, Spiteful Shadows, Unnatural Hunger, Errantry, Inner Demon, Psychotic Fury, Vampiric Link (unlike lifelink, the controller of the aura gets life, not the creature's controller)

Tainted Strike and Ragged Veins both allow for a surprise kill.

Hej hej,

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.

My Decks at the Moment:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)

Oathbreaker: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (Artifacts) Jace, Memory Adept (Milling) Liliana, Death's Majesty (Zombies) Liliana of the Dark Realms (Ramp/Shades) Kaya, Ghost Assassin (Flicker/Token)

Former Decks (I hope I remember all):

EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)

Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.

I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

Love and happyness Corbeau

I'd say that Ragged Veins has a home here, as it means that you don't care if your super-buffed Immolating Souleater is blocked; just flash it in on the blocker before damage is dealt!

On this line of thought, I agree with Echemon on the Rite of Consumption .

Really cool deck though, I'd love to see it do well.

DuTogira Hah! Already made Kindle the Carnage/Nahiri's Wrath combo. Bout a month ago, but I didn't like the stuffy doll effects, so I cut them for Ragged Veins and somthin else.

You could try using cards like Kindle the Carnage and Nahiri's Wrath, along with some big CMC cards as a combo kill with your creatures. Kind of like the old Ragged Veins/Spiteful Shadows combo decks.

You can make it modern if you're ok moving into black. Ragged Veins and Spiteful Shadows do the same thing as repurcussion, but for only one creature. Granted, when you're doing 15 damage, you probably don't need all that many times for the effect to go off. If you do go into black, Canyon Slough is a reasonable, although not great, replacement for forgotten cave. I'd move over to snow lands as someone else suggested, both so that you can run skred (which can be used to hit a creature for 8 for 1 mana and kill your opponent with one of the auras) and so that Extraplanar Lens doesn't benefit your opponent. Scrying Sheets can also help dig for your combo. To help survive, I'd run Blood Moon, even if you go two colors, because it can significantly hamper the more color intensive control and midrange decks that your deck will struggle against. To deal with aggro, you should probably replace some of the worse burn (Shock, Lightning Strike) with board clears like Anger of the Gods/Sweltering Suns or Damnation, assuming you go to black. Batterskull might be a consideration as an alternate win condition and a way to gain life after form is out. Like the idea.

I like Ragged Veins over Contaminated Bond for this deck. You're going to have a lot of high power creatures with low toughness so Contaminated Bond will trigger for 3. As long as your creature's power is higher than 3 Ragged Veins will have more impact. The downside with Ragged Veins is that first strike can mean no damage if your toughness is not high enough. The split covers you in both situations so hopefully you get the card you need in the right situation?
