Tymaret, Chosen from Death

Tymaret, Chosen from Death

Legendary Enchantment Creature — Demigod

Tymaret's toughness is equal to your devotion to black. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to black.)

: Exile up to two target cards from graveyards. You gain 1 life for each creature card exiled this way.

Nykthos, Lashwrithe, and Malakir Rebirth are all 3 I've heard of and/or have considered for this deck. Granted Nykthos is pretty pricey xD but it would be such a great acquisition. I really like the other recommendations Brasslord, I am keeping a list of possible cards to look into and try to figure out how they'll fit into my deck and what direction they'll take them.

I also have my eye on Thoughtseize, Leyline of the Void, Phyrexian Obliterator, though those prices are a big obstacle obviously haha Nightmare Shepherd, Fatal Push, Yarok's Fenlurker, Tymaret, Chosen from Death, Bolas's Citadel, and Ayara, First of Lochthwain are all ones that I've seen, heard of, and various ones have been cards I've been told to look into. So I have my work cut out for me to figure out which are worth it and will actually bump this deck up unless I want just a 100 card deck of all of the above lol...

StoryArcher on This (mono-black) deck is SO …

This deck is so much freaking fun to play, especially if you like old-school 'fair' type decks. Just love how interactive it is.

I haven't played much since the pandemic hit (do people actually still play Modern?), so I haven't had a chance to really review the newer sets - can anyone offer suggestions on how the deck can be improved, particularly with regards to the side-board? It's balanced pretty well right now with a smooth-as-silk mana curve.

Keeping in mind the amount of life-gain in this deck, some of the cards I've been tinkering with (to replace Tymaret, Chosen from Death) are a one-of Killing Wave, Collective Brutality, Essence Harvest, Stain the Mind, Dismember and Torment of Hailfire. Creature-wise I'm also thinking a one-of Mogis's Marauder as a sort of timely finisher or a Nightmare Shepherd.

Would Gatekeeper of Malakir be an improvement on Geralf's Messenger here? I feel like between the hand destruction, all the deathtouch and the set of Murderous Rider I don't actually need that much more creature removal, especially if my opponent gets to choose who goes.

I played around with tossing in a couple of Bojuka Bog or Leechridden Swamp but it seems like any lands coming in tapped (especially early) messed with my flow. Thoughts on that?

Regarding sideboard, do I need a better means of dealing with Artifacts or Land? If so, what would you suggest?

Metroid_Hybrid, no I just meant that with no other artifacts in my deck that Lashwrithe would draw every bit of artifact hate they had. What, exactly, are the benefits of a 'living weapon'? I read the card but I don't get it.

Btw, been looking for Tymaret, Chosen from Death and finally found it. Trying to decide if I want one or two, but it helps my turn two options.

Nice deck with very good results in Arena. I've reached twice diamond with it although I made a little adjustments. I traded the 2x Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and 1x Tymaret, Chosen from Death for 3x Feed the Swarm to get rid of those pesky enchantments and it works wonders.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip just doesn't seem to work here - too much cost for too little effect. Village Rites confuses me. Even with casting from the grave, you don't have enough creatures to then go and sacrifice them.

Cards that I would like to see in a build like this include Unexpected Fangs (which would be rather useful if repeatedly cast from the grave), Malakir Rebirth  Flip to replace Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and Tymaret, Chosen from Death for some late-game muscle.

Ugh I want this to be a deck so bad. I'm guessing you'll need some GY interaction to deal with Uro and Kroxa and any other goodies you might mill. Probably Tymaret, Chosen from Death is the best option? After he's on the ground, you have instant-speed interaction or you can hold up a flash dude. Otherwise, the best alternative is probably Cling to Dust.

Thanks a bunch for the feedback Profet93 and suggestionNemy_Nem! It's great to get some different viewpoints, especially during this time where I can't play with my usual group!

Soul Shatter is 100% getting added when it's released... mainly because it has fantastic art... but also, it's impossible for it to brick on a token, compared to Liliana's Triumph. Check out Feed the Swarm from Zendikar Rising, some targeted Enchantment/Creature removal in Mono-Black, it's a Sorcery, but hey, you take what you can get!

Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Jet Medallion are out of my price range for now, although I agree that Jet Medallion would be amazing in this deck, especially when chaining spells.

Blast Zone looks really good! I don't know how I missed it, maybe I thought it was a Ratchet Bomb effect, taking too long to get online, but with the ability to charge and detonate it in a couple of turns is great.

Oubliette Is really cool, but my meta has loads of Artifact/Enchantment removal, so i'd rather kill a commander to increase its tax.

Nevinyrral's Disk Looks like a good board wipe that doubles as Artifact/Enchantment removal. It's a bit expensive for me, but it does enough that I can probably justify it. I might swap Deathbringer Regent for it as they fit a similar slot in my deck.

Mind Twist and Syphon Mind look cool, but when i'm up against decks that want their graveyard filled, it might be too much of a risk. Along those lines, Tymaret, Chosen from Death has really over performed in my meta. The lifegain is incidental, but being able to clear graveyards of problematic cards repeatably is fantastic, especially on a cheap creature that often has 6+ toughness, so is a good blocker

I do really like Read the Bones, and extra cheap card draw might help compensate for my low land count. It's a shame it's not an Instant, but I might try swapping it out for Ashling, the Extinguisher for a while!

I'll keep an eye on Agent of the Fates and Memorial to Folly, they have seemed ok in the games i've run them, especially Agent of the Fates, which won me a game by itself last night but ill see how they would compare to an Edict spell or basic Swamp when I draw them from now on!
