Torment of Hailfire Discussion

Verlise on Zaxara's X-Rated Fun

DeinoStinkus Thanks for the upvote and feedback! Man, I didn't even think of taking advantage of Zaxara, the Exemplary's mana ability to pump these spell. How could I have been so blind! In any case, I will have to look into Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura. I added Torment of Hailfire, today. I may have Finale of Devastation around... All of my Exsanguinates are in other decks, but I really need to make sure all my decks that have black have that card. Thanks, again! :)

SynergyBuild on TINYBONES: TINY PUNISHER (Mono-Black Stax)

Oh for sure run Necro over Bob, and Visitor as well, but more pieces are good, Mindblade Render is great too, however the weird big mana thing is my largest issue with the deck.

Umbral Mantle, Magus of the Coffers, Nirkana Revenant, Torment of Hailfire, Exsanguinate, Bubbling Muck, etc. All are destroyed by cheap removal and interaction. A ton of other random cards in the deck feel weak or just low value, and I believe could be swapped for nearly directly better cards, and the deck could have almost strictly better wincons.

Yes I do like the amazing Tinybones backup plan, but mana dumping isn't necessary, and could just work given the stacy peices and the time they give without all the fluff that makes mulligans and opening hands much worse.

I think this list shows a lot of potential, but isn't tuned for the current metagame, if that makes sense. I'll write up a list of changes and maybe will post it later on!

I just made a Toshiro Umezawa as well. A lot of similar cards, but its good to remember that the instants are there for control. I.E controlling the board state and making sure you don't die. Otherwise, they are good for drawing ect.

Something I would recommend is to add a few more mana rocks and maybe a few more wincons. For example, I have Aetherflux Reservoir, Torment of Hailfire, and Rise of the Dark Realms as some really good wincons. They can be a bit pricey though. While you can keep it at 36 instants, I'd probably go down in between 28-32 instants.

Here's the one I built: Toshiro Umezawa

Hope that helped :) Some of those were suggestions people gave me to help me as well.

SteelSentry on What are the top two ...

The most important thing is going to be your meta, but in a vacuum I would not pick Rune of Protection: Black, because the most popular black win conditions are going to be "loss of life", which can't be prevented. The black Rune is going to be powerless to stop Torment of Hailfire, Debt to the Deathless, and Blood Artist effects. Red is one of the better ones, and so for me it comes down to White and Green, whichever you are more scared of hitting you with a big creature.

Pretty interesting deck :3
I could suggest:
Massacre Wurm - small-scale boardwipe (+Sudden Spoiling); MW also supports your Forbidden Orchard + Illness in the Ranks to slowly drain your opponents out.
Liliana of the Dark Realms - Her ultimate would help you a lot to cast big Exsanguinate/Torment of Hailfire. It might not always work, but you can at least fetch few swamps out of the deck.
Lake of the Dead - A bit pricey land from Reserved List, but it might help a lot aswell.
Grim Return - This could be good, when your commander kills something, just cast this, stealth the killed creature and re-do it next turn? Maybe.. just maybe.
Bloodcurdling Scream/Howl from Beyond - Ramp up, cast this and swing for lethal c.dmg with Umezawa?
Tainted Strike - Sneaky infect? Also insant for only one !
Big black spells with X? Consume Spirit - any target with lifesteal; Damnable Pact - possible card draw or finisher;Death Cloud - big mean cloud!; Death Wind - single target version of Black Sun's Zenith; Profane Command - this card is just great.

Black Market can be silly on its own, even sillier in token decks though... I personally buff it even more with Desecrated Tomb + Tortured Existence (+Phyrexian Altar to go infinite etb/etg triggers). I think any deck running black could use Tortured Existence, just to recover any creature from your graveyard you need at the moment and/or for madness.

RambIe on Tetzimoc as a commander?

@Omniscience_is_life I love it!
This will be a very challenging build but when you pull it off it will be amazing!

Black has so much great synergy for this mechanic if you get it up and running. Black Market, Torment of Hailfire, Revel in Riches, Torment of Scarabs to name just a few
i cant wait to see what you do with it
