Syr Konrad, the Grim occurrence in decks from the last year

Syr Konrad, the Grim Discussion

MLS91 on Relics of Fear

Disciple of the Vault does a better job, on both curve, recursion, not to mention Marionette Master only sees your own side of the board.

Disciple of the Vault sees all artifacts, your's and your opponents. Biggest one that comes to mind being treasure tokens

if I were to include Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker somewhere in the deck(cut Sheoldred, the Whispering One but feels bad) I would then cut Syr Konrad, the Grim for Marionette Master

Lokotor on Marchesa, The Black Rose - Primer

it depends on what you want / how your build looks, but generally, at least for my list, at least I'd say go for Gray Merchant of Asphodel rather than Syr Konrad, the Grim .

konrad relies on getting a lot of triggers to pay off, since it's just chip damage otherwise. in a good game you might be getting 3-4 sac triggers per turn, and doing ~14 damage in a round to each player is decent, but at the same time, if you're getting 3-4 sacrifices per turn you're already probably drawing 15 cards, killing everything on the board, and fetching all your lands or something, so it's just win more.

gary has the benefit of being a 1 shot piece which can both stabilize you if your life total is low, and also can do significant damage to the table. assuming you have a modest devotion of 6, (him + Marchesa, the Black Rose + Viscera Seer + Unspeakable Symbol for example) that's a pretty decent swing in life totals, and if you're doing it every turn, then that's nearly game ending in just one rotation.

Omniscience_is_life, Profet93

- Trading Post for + Junk Diver

Why: Scrap Trawler loop enabled with Myr Retriever and Junk Diver , also lowers curve overall and better overall synergy, potential win with Zulaport Cutthroat or Syr Konrad, the Grim , good looks Omniscience_is_life

- Go for the Throat for + Liliana's Triumph

Why: Profet93 you are correct, much better value

- Cabal Stronghold for + Vesuva

Why: Thespian's Stage would end up tapped at the cost of 2mana compared to Vesuva just coming in tapped for the same ability. Minuscule advantage but it's there

- Swamp for + Prismatic Vista

Why: you right Profet93

- Mind Slash for + Imp's Mischief

Why: mindslash isn't as efficient as id like to think it is, puts opponents creatures back in their graveyard (theoretically) and that works against Living Death

- Hedron Archive for + Sensei's Divining Top

Why: Profet93, you clearly point out the why, there is no contention with your logic and rational

- Dreamstone Hedron for + Lotus Petal

Why: Cuts curve, synergy with the trawler line, can easily produce more mana then any other rock in the deck. (potentially infinite???)

Profet93 Metalworker is just a really good way to ramp, acts as a rock for explosiveness. there are 21 total artifacts in the deck, so just above 20% of the deck feeds him, which is also why I included Vault of Whispers unless you think Darksteel Citadel would serve better in this slot

Housegheist on Teysa, of the Orzhov Syndicate {WIP}

Upvote, just because of the commander i'm totally crushed with since playing magic. Maybe look at my deck Blood and Wine feat. Teysa and get some inspiration. As i already found Gift of Immortality and will try to implement it :) But i would strongly recomment Syr Konrad, the Grim . He is an absolutely powerhouse!

While this may be a redundant suggestion, I was thinking about Syr Konrad, the Grim . Assuming that you half someone's life total, any creature that is put into the graveyard from you simply killing it with a pinger is going to do one damage to each opponent. I offer a theoretical example; Syr Konrad is out and you've halved an opponent's health from 30 to 15. If you attack with Ronin Cliffrider , for instance, you will deal 1 damage (with deathtouch) to each creature the defending player controls (let us say for the sake of the theoretical it was 5 creatures). They die and go to the graveyard, dealing 5 additional damage. Our opponent has lost 5 life, he or she has 10 left now. This may be more effective later in the game in a similar scenario if you played a Goblin Chainwhirler .

TheoryCrafter on Tergrid Discard

Have you considered any combination of Fell Specter , Liliana's Caress , Raiders' Wake ? While all of these have the same function as Megrim, Liliana's Caress comes in at 1 mana less; Raiders' Wake may come in 1 mana more than Megrim, but can force multiple discards; and Fell Specter is also a creature.

If your looking for lifegain, Sangromancer could be a boost for Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

Also, Syr Konrad, the Grim allows for a damage boost. I used it in a Commander game with Mindcrank and shut down a lot of my opponent's spells through milling.

Happy Hunting!

  1. Pay 4{C}2{B} to cast Demonlord Belzenlok .

  2. Exile any black card not necessary to the combo to cast Unmask on yourself discarding Phantasmagorian .

  3. Discard Skirge Familiar , Dread Return , and any other non-combo card to return Phantasmagorian hand.

  4. Cast Deepwood Legate for free. If none of your opponents control a Forest , you will need: one extra {B} and two additional activations of Phantasmagorian 's ability (discarding 6 non-combo cards) to be able to fully delve into Sibsig Muckdraggers . Sibsig Muckdraggers ’s trigger requires an additional creature be present in your graveyard in order to avoid returning Skirge Familiar to your hand. Dross Golem can also be used here in place of Deepwood Legate .

  5. Cast Hollow One for free.

  6. Flashback Dread Return by sacrificing Demonlord Belzenlok , Hollow One and Deepwood Legate to return Skirge Familiar to the battlefield.

  7. Use Skirge Familiar 's ability to discard Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , Lotus Guardian , Endling , Cinderhaze Wretch , and Dread to add 5{B}. -- Skirge Familiar can generate mana to cast Meteor Golem to deal with direct threats to the win condition.

  8. Pay to cast Necrotic Ooze . If Necrotic Ooze gets countered, return it using Makeshift Mannequin or Sibsig Muckdraggers .

  9. Pay to give Necrotic Ooze haste (courtesy of Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon ).

  10. Tap Necrotic Ooze to add {B} (courtesy of Lotus Guardian ).

  11. Pay to give Necrotic Ooze undying (courtesy of Endling ).

  12. Alternate between Lotus Guardian 's and Cinderhaze Wretch 's abilities until Necrotic Ooze dies to add 2{B}. Once Necrotic Ooze comes back with a +1/+1 counter via undying, pay to give it haste and undying (again) then continue to alternate between Lotus Guardian 's and Cinderhaze Wretch 's abilities until Necrotic Ooze dies to add 4{B}. Repeat this process until you have infinite {B}.

--- Optional: Give Necrotic Ooze infinite +1/+1, haste, undying, menace, and deathtouch from Deepwood Legate , Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , and Endling . Then use both of Cinderhaze Wretch 's abilities to make all your opponents discard their hands.

Finally, use the infinite {B} mana to cast Syr Konrad, the Grim , continue generating infinite mana with Necrotic Ooze , Cinderhaze Wretch , and Lotus Guardian , and bleed out all of your opponents from the infinite undying triggers. Syr Konrad, the Grim 's ability can also be used to mill everybody else at the table. Dread hitting the graveyard and immediately leaving will also trigger damage.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion can also be discarded with Skirge Familiar and then reanimated using Living Death for an alternate win condition.
