PrettzyDizzy on Debts to Pay and Taxes to Collect

4 days ago

UPDATE 12.4.2021

CHANGES:

Syphon Mind --> Witch of the Moors . I was able to trade myself a Witch so I'm currently giving it a spin in the deck. So far I've been able to get it on the field once ad even then it was destroyed immediately so yeah, not the best first impression. Further testing is needed.

WHAT NEXT:

  1. More graveyard hate is needed. I'll try to find a place for Rest in Peace or/and Samurai of the Pale Curtain in the deck.
  2. Wandering Archaic  Flip from Strixhaven looks really interesting. If I get my hands on it I'll probably try it in here.

Grind on Discarding with Windgrace

I would cut arcane encyclopedia in favor of Syphon Mind , Harmonize , Night's Whisper , or Ambition's Cost , or Rummaging Goblin .
And i might run Geier Reach Sanitarium over rix maadi.

I get the flexibility you're talking about in terms of Thespian's Stage in comparison. However ill keep that in mind when i comes to play testing when i get the ability to in the future.

Lotus Petal can be chained infinitely with the scrap trawler line thus another back up of infinite mana for Tergrid's Lantern . I don't like Bubbling Muck because of its symmetry as you've also noticed but did proxy in (until i can get my hands on one) the Jet Medallion

I like the idea of Blast Zone but can't justify the loss ill take as well since it effects the board

Syphon Mind was cut earlier because instead of a use once sorcery regardless of the "value" it accrues, Grim Haruspex is both more explosive in draw power and more easily recurable within the confines of both mono black, and the deck itself.

to note a conversation with some fellows from my play group however there will be a couple adjustments incoming and as follows,

-1 Liliana's Triumph for +1 Grasp of Darkness

-1To be determined... for +1 Toxic Deluge

the reasoning being, in an attempt to understand or prepare for the hypothetical weakness of the deck (aggro/token strategies) i've determined that adding some spot removal (lack of opponent having a choice) to accompany the sacrificial removal spells (opponent has the choice) as well as an additional boardwipe in case of "oh shit" moments that being said there is also the possibility that Grasp of Darkness may eventually be replaced by Executioner's Capsule due to it being both an artifact and recurable.

What are your thoughts?

Regarding swapping vesuva instead of thespian's stage, I like stage because it can copy anything anytime. I value the flexibility of it more than the mana it costs to activate. But thats personal preference.

Regarding Dreamstone for Lotus petal, I've never liked petal personally. One and done mana rocks are best used in cEDH decks or decks that can abuse card draw to make up for the disadvantage. I like Bubbling Muck , although it is symmetrical especially with urborg. Again, personal preference. Lastly, another option in this slot is Jet Medallion

Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts and enchantments

Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, you get their stuff. All for 4 mana, the value!

Budget per card? As I know chains would fit nicely with anvil and yawgmoth's will is just value.

Cool deck +1

Could use some card draw elements in place of some weaker creatures. Promise of Power ? Ancient Craving ? Syphon Mind .

Could definitely use some single creature protection because your CMDR is gonna take heat for a multitude of reason. I like Cloudshift or Restoration Angel . Those are very synergetic with your cmdr as well as some creatures.

Also think you should weigh the value of some of your treasure token generators and perhaps replace for sac creatures. Demon's Disciple .

-1 Mortician Beetle + 1 Innocent Blood ?

Whip of Erebos is tiiiiiight yo..
