Szat's Will

Szat's Will

Instant

Choose one. If you control a commander as you cast this spell, you may choose both —

  • Each opponent sacrifices a creature they control with the greatest power.
  • Exile all cards from all opponents' graveyards, then create X 0/1 black Thrull creature tokens, where X is the greatest power among creature cards

LOVE the deck man. I’ll definitely be adding Szat's Will

Upgrade is finally made! For now, I'm going with adding Opposition Agent, Szat's Will, Jeweled Lotus, and Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools, and removing Black Market, Netherborn Altar, Rite of Belzenlok, and Murderous Rider (for now). Bloodchief Ascension would probably have been a better cut than Rider, but I just have a personal fondness for that card...

So, to summarize:

IN - Opposition Agent, Szat's Will, Jeweled Lotus, Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools

OUT - ????

Rite of Belzenlok, Liliana's Standard Bearer, and Black Market have been thrown around as possible cuts. Easy enough to swap for Tevesh, Agent, and Will, but what do we cut for Lotus?

Daedalus19876 I would love to see this updated when you get a chance.

Daedalus19876 I was wondering what you thought of some of the new cards from Commander Legends. We got a good number of things to mess around with, and I'm also super excited to play with Tevesh Szat, Doom of Fools and Szat's Will in the deck. Szat let's you +2 to effectively draw 2 with Yawgmoth out, or +1 to draw 2 anyway, so it seems super good. Plus, it's another sac outlet, and his ultimate is potentially reachable with Yawgmoth's proliferate!

It also took me a while to realize that Szat's Will is an instant; I thought it was a sorcery for some reason, but it being an instant makes it much better and useful since you will likely be able to use it as both removal and token generation (which around mid-game when this card would likely be cast, could net you around 4+ tokens). Also... instant mass Bojuka Bog lmao.

Perhaps you could try cutting Black Market for the planeswalker, at least. I don't really like upkeep effects like that anymore, but I can see why you'd use it since it's potentially a shit ton of mana.

Other cards that caught my eye were Exquisite Huntmaster and Opposition Agent. I cut my copy of Rite of Belzenlok for Huntmaster since it can give you more mileage, a max total of 8 creatures to sacrifice (provided you still have 3 opponents). Opposition Agent is also... stupidly good, so I decided to swap it in as a replacement for Liliana's Standard Bearer since drawing isn't really hard at all in the deck.

In my old variants Phyrexian Arena did help at times, I also saw some useful new cards in the spoilers worth running Szat's Will for example and War Room. I do need to retweak my deck a bit myself so far however, seeing that you run karn why not run Karn, the Great Creator?

Another card I was thinking of trying but a risk is Exquisite Blood since I'm running drain spells

It is very nice to see that Vampiric Tutor is being reprinted, again; I know that most players, including myself, were hoping for a reprint of Imperial Seal, but at least the tutor will decrease in price, since it is still worth more than $100.00, at this time.

At this point, it is likely safe to presume that uncommon legendary creatures will now be a regular feature of this game, which severely disappoints me, since I was hoping that they appear only on rare occasions.

Mnemonic Deluge is quite awesome, but I am not certain if I would be willing to spend such a large amount of mana to cast it.

Confiscate has not been reprinted in some time, so it is nice to see another reprint of that card.

It is nice to see that WotC finally made a card of Krark, and he obviously has synergy with his own thumb, which I hope is reprinted in this set, as well.

Szat's Will is very diabolical, much like Szat, himself, although, as with Szat, himself, I feel that it should have had more black mana symbols in its cost, since both card are very powerful and very black in effect.

Sphinx of the Second Sun is a very interesting new effect that has never been done, before, so I like it.

I like Siani, but the fact that his or her (the name sounds feminine, to me) ability is limited to creatures with flying limits their usefulness.

If I ever build a fairy EDH deck, I shall definitely include Nymris in that deck.

The ghost of Ramirez de Pietro is quite an awesome callback to an obscure older card, although I wish that the ghost was black/blue, since the original card was black/blue.

Seraphic Greatsword is very awesome, although the high equip cost will require a carefully-constructed deck to be able to pay it reliably.

I am so happy to finally see Liesa, the black/white angel from Innistrad, and her ability is definitely very awesome; I certainly would like to see other legendary creatures with that form of alternative payment, but I also would like to see it remain unique to her; if I ever make a black/white EDH deck, there will be so many options from which to choose. However, why is he only a normal rare, when the other angels from her cycle were mythic rares? I noticed that her alternate cost is mandatory, not optional, which could be a problem if she is summoned too many times, but any deck that has her as the general will likely have plenty of methods for gaining life.

Bladegriff prototype is very awesome, but I am not certain if it is worth the additional 2 mana over Trygon Predator.

Emergence Zone would help with speeding up kills with torment of hailfire and Szat's Will seems like a good item
