11/23/22 - Madness update

I'm really low on madness cards. Needs to be far higher for an anje deck.




Removed most end game threats + interaction that didn't have madness, since madness tech needs to be there in high density and the deck can win through that stuff mainly.

TheoryCrafter on Mono-Black Liliana Tribal

Font of Agonies is a must for any deck relying on paying life to cast spells. I have it in my K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth deck and can kill a surprising number of creatures if both are kept on the battlefield long enough.

There's no guarantee you can get K'rrik on the battlefield soon enough to make a difference. That's why I recommend finding a spot for Defiler of Flesh to give you an increase in chances of having the ability to pay life instead of mana.

Also, Crypt Ghast, while legal in mono-black decks, can lead other players with the mistaken impression that it isn't legal due to the extort cost.

Tainted Remedy is very flavorful for a Liliana deck, but unless you add more cards that allow your opponents to gain life(including, but not limited to, Grollub and Triskaidekaphobia), or in a play circle where lifegain is well utilized, it's mostly a dead card. If you wish for an alternative I'd recommend Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

As for benefitting from Graveyard recursion, may I suggest Syr Konrad, the Grim? Get this on the battlefield with the Gravecrawler/Phyrexian Altar combo and it's an Insta-win.

Have you considered Liliana's Caress with all the discard in your deck?

That's all for now. Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Syndras on "Library.exe has stopped working" | HUGE Update

I've got a Phenax deck since 3 years now (mostly thanks to this primer) and I've got one recommandation and question : How do you manage to resolve the Bloodchief Ascension as we are usually not attacking, ok there is Syr Konrad, the Grim or Duskmantle Guildmage to trigger it but I feel like it's heavily reliant on your opponents. It probably works in your playgroup but whenever I play it, I become the archenemy (even if it's turn 1) because they know that when it's going to be online, it will be really difficult for them to kill me and prevent me from killing them. An alternative/recommandation at the same cost may be Ruin Crab. P.S. I love the legacy combo <3

MTGBurgeoning on The Frolicsome Shenanigans Of Athreos's Apostles

I did think about Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim after he was shown during the Dominaria United previews. The challenge is finding a place for him in the 99. Syr Konrad, the Grim and Zulaport Cutthroat synergize with the Aristocrat theme of this build better than Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim. I sense replacing a Shadowborn Apostle may not be feasible, as 28 seems like the line in the sand, just as the 36-land land base. Although it receives benefits from it, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled's presence does not contribute to the Apostle engine. Is there another card you see as replaceable for Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim?

Tymaret, Chosen from Deathgrave hate that works well with commander to limit the randomness

Altar of Dementia free sac plus many more upsides

Syr Konrad, the Grim with cards entering and leaving graves a decent wincon

Hofri Ghostforge double use etbs with other upside

Sire Of Insanity especially in a low budget slowing down the game works well in your favor. Also a blue players nightmare

Burnished Hart ramp

Ruinous Ultimatum sorcery speed mardu Cyclonic Rift

Tragic Arrogance you choose kinda boardwipe

Command the Dreadhorde Greatness at any cost

Victimize 1 bad guy fir 2 good guys. Seems legit

Overall thoughts

At a glance it looks good just slow. Maybe need to trim some of the fun cards for ramp.

A few ideas:

Some cards seem good. Others cute. Ajani's Chosen for instance. I don't think you have enough payoffs for a token bear to be helpful. I think it would be better as say Sakura-Tribe Elder for ramp or Sanctum Weaver / Destiny Spinner / Setessan Champion to go with your commander's ability.

Other things of note. Isareth the Awakener doesn't return things without you paying a ton of mana. I'd suggest some other reanimation if you want that like Victimize Dread Return or the like.

Syr Konrad, the Grim can do some work here too. 2 triggers each nontoken creature with your commander out could be powerful plus a mana sink that's decent as a enchantment.

You have some legendary tribal subtheme so maybe go deeper in it. I'm sure there are some historic payoffs or legend payoffs that might interest you.

This deck really does what it says on the tin! Have you considered Syr Konrad, the Grim, seeing as you are milling so heavily? I know your 5-drop slot is a bit heavy, but this one seems like a killer based on your build.

CamraMaan on Dumb question...? Syr Konrad, the …

4 months ago

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm assuming when you shuffle your graveyard into your library, any creature that gets shuffled back in will trigger Syr Konrad, the Grim's "leaving the graveyard" bit, right? I don't see why it wouldn't, but I've made poor rules assumptions too many times, and there's no Konrad ruling regarding it to make it obvious (probably because it already is). Thanks in advance! :)
