Reiver Demon

Creature — Demon

Flying

When Reiver Demon enters the battlefield, if you played it from your hand, destroy all nonartifact, nonblack creatures. They can't be regenerated.

Howl from Beyond and Endless Scream are cool.

Dauthi Embrace is good

I personally like Reiver Demon

More people should be playing Void

I found Karn, Silver Golem to be very useful in a black deck to kill artifacts.

And I will always say Infiltration Lens and Glasses of Urza are underrated

wallisface, Mark Rosewater has stated that black is the most selfish of the colors, and cards such as Phage the Untouchable and Reiver Demon have very strict casting costs.

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.

Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.

Blossoming Wreath,Gnaw to the Bone probably heal less than lifelink, and there's a ton of ways to give lifelink.

Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.

And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.

Moodmark Painter gives the +x/+x buff and is on a body Garruk Relentless  Flip flips into Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, but its tricky to make this one work

Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

Mesmeric Orb,Stitcher's Supplier would be an amazing graveyard filler.

Zombie Infestation and Wild Mongrel is usefull for dumping creatures out of your hand

I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.

Life from the Loam and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip would be good helps for mana and options.

As long as you run Filth run Crop Rotation and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too since it will make every creature you have unblockable.

Deathrite Shaman would benefit from more fetch lands Marsh Flats,Verdant Catacombs,Misty Rainforest would help mana fix as well as throw more lands into your graveyard.

You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

Meta dependent but Reiver Demon works pretty well since creatures that make good presents tend to be immune to it (Taniwha can hide)

What are you using as sac fodder for symmetrical effects like Innocent Blood? I prefer e.g. Virtus's Maneuver

Reiver Demon and Crypt Ghast and Cabal Coffers and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Black loves being black lol. It's also my favorite color. I love cards that destroy one trick pony combo decks. Black has cards for this like Sadistic Sacrament Bitter Ordeal and Praetor's Grasp. Black has extra turns spells too, Temporal Extortion. Black has counter spells Imp's Mischief and Withering Boon and Stromgald Cabal and Deathgrip. Blacks wants all the power Necropotence and Bolas's Citadel and Worst Fears. Life for power K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth. Black also has the best artwork Deliver Unto Evil and Withengar Unbound and The Meathook Massacre

+1 for a great deckname and Shrouded Lore is a great find.

Possible adds: throw in Midnight Banshee to chip away at the board, Contamination to cripple manabases, and perhaps Ayara, First of Locthwain for the added extortion/draw (not to mention another 3 black mana pips for devotion). Phyrexian Reclamation to recover any dead buddies, and to give your Reiver Demon another chance to blow the board up. Pestilence to just bone everyone since Erebos, God of the Dead is indestructible, as long as your devotion is at 5 you can wipe the board and keep Pestilence around - you'll be at 3 devotion with Pestilence and Erebos anyway so it shouldn't be too tough.

multimedia on rakdos, the showstopper/ chaos

3 years ago

Hey, nice start on a budget. Chaos can be a tricky theme to build.

The avg. CMC of your deck is very high at 4.3 with only Sol Ring as reliable ramp and only having 35 lands. This 4.3 number means you will consistently not be casting a card until earliest turn four, more like turn five. Not doing anything for the first four turns or more is not fun in Commander because you risk basically not having any board presence at all before turn five. My advice is add some ramp in place of a few high CMC cards (5 CMC or higher). Doing this will reduce the avg. CMC and ramp will make it easier to cast spells especially Showstopper.

Some cards for ramp to consider adding:

For the cards to consider cutting you want to make a choice of what are the best cards you want at the high end of the mana curve? Having lots of both high CMC Chaos cards and big creatures is too many high CMC cards. Showstopper is the six drop creature you want to cast. Cards to consider cutting to add more ramp:


Reanimation is a good secondary strategy when playing so many high CMC creatures. Reanimation needs enablers to get creatures into graveyard which is good with Patriarch's Bidding and Demons. Consider expanding on reanimation? Another reason to add enablers for reanimation is Anger. A haste enabler to give your high CMC creatures haste, attacking with them the turn you play them especially Showshopper.


Some card changes to consider:

Budget lands to consider adding to replace some basic lands: Graven Cairns, Ash Barrens, Grixis Panorama, Jund Panorama, Foreboding Ruins, Tainted Peak, Evolving Wilds.

Good luck with your deck.
