Victim of Night would also work well as a Black knight card

Coward_Token on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. A Good …

Curse of Surveillance: Yeah, one of the scarier pieces of art so far. Get some gloves!

Spellrune Painter: Not really a fan of this design; feel that there's not enough of a payoff for managing the tension between one ability that rewards you for casting multiple spells and another that rewards you for not casting.

Stuffed Bear: Haha so goofy, I love it. Kinda wish it became a 2/2 with a 1 + 1 cost tho but whatever

Sigarda's Splendor: Meh, not the hero mono-white EDH is holding out for. You've all heard the criticism of Phyrexian Arena by now, and this is both more expensive and requires you to jump trough a hoop, all while making it harder to synergize life gain with life payment.

Lier, Disciple of the Drowned: Spells, period? Were they concerned with mindless counterspelling being too efficient for card advantage? Anyway, EDH-blue got unholy abominations like Resculpt available to it, so the lack of counterspells isn't as painful as it could be. Both Dralnu and Kess have been successful in EDH, but I can't say how much Lier trading extra colors for the ability to flashback more than will hurt him. Also, the flavor text foreshadowing more lovecraftian gods feels kinda redundant with Emrakul chilling in the moon, even if it's not new.

Moonsilver Key: oof, looks like Avacyn has gone and lost her head again

Vadrix, Astral Archmage: Obviously similar to Mizzix of the Izmagnus. Similarly to Spellrune Painter, I feel the actual day/night part is kinda incidental and self-deafeating. You can use power-boosting spells as rituals. Runechanter's Pike has found a home! Also, while I mean no offense, I feel like it was a mistake to include a bald black wizard-man with a black beard, white robes and a blue jacket in the same set as Teferi. (Yes, the latter has hair on his head but it's cut very short.)

Outland Liberator: That's more like it! The front is already rubbing shoulders with Thrashing Brontodon & Caustic Caterpillar, while the back gives pretty incredible repeatable value. (Also, is the flavor of the front that she gets eaten by the wolf?)

Ludevic: Yeah I always felt that the flavor justification for Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist being red was off, the guy's so unfettered... and it looks like he's gone completly off the rails here! Despite being an absolute clusterfuck, his backside has managed to avoided Horror-typing. (And yes, Olag seems to be him and not just a new creation.) Mechanically, I feel like he's mostly a The Mimeoplasm that traded green for more self-sufficiency. He might be more useful in the 99 as a self-miller that can eventually reanimate something.

Rem Karolus, Stalwart Slayer: Meh, feels like a rehash of Tajic, Legion's Edge or a cheaper Firesong and Sunspeaker. But sure, go ahead with e.g. Earthquake, Price of Progress, and Arcbond.

Katilda, Dawnhart Headwitch: You leave my poor furries alone, they've suffered enough! Anyway, People-elfball goooo

Thraben Exorcism: StopShot, this is probably the closest you'll get to that whiteVictim of Night throwback

Dauntless Avenger: Quite nice payoff for aristocrats decks

Morbid Opportunist: I like this design, making sure something dies each turn sounds pretty fun. No nontoken clause either!

Hound Tamer: How is the flipside a "Pup"?

yeah i was too lazy to give actual feedback on nonland cards sorry

Gatekeeper is really good, I'd put it in as a 3 of at least. If you wanna lean more into the sacrifice for value build with Blood Artist/Viscera Seer/Bloodghast/Cordial Vampire etc you can run Kalastria Highborn.

For Doom blade replacements, we have Bloodchief's Thirst, Dismember, Infernal Grasp, maybe Heartless Act. With the new innistrad sets running Victim of Night seems like a bad idea so I won't suggest it.

Some thoughts:

  • Mirri the Cursed doesn’t provide much impact for its mana cost, i’d ditch it in place for more killspells.

  • Similarly, Anowon, the Ruin Sage isn’t terrible, but he’s not great either - being quite slow and clunky. I’d suggest ditching him also, and going down to 23 lands.

  • the spell from the upcoming set Infernal Grasp seems awesome here, as an unconditional killspell. Victim of Night is also very strong (and on theme)

  • Sudden Spoiling doesn’t seem good, when black has access to so many ways to just kill a creature instead.

passimo on Is Cast Down the best …

Definitely. Cast Down is hands down the best removal in pauper imo*.

I'd actually find it more fun if it wasn't legal, am I the only one? I liked thinking "oh yes this is a mono deck, Victim of Night" or "Building a rakdos deck, better use Terminate" (*which actually could still be better than cast down if you have the right mana) or even "I can't get the right mana on curve, better use Doom Blade this time". I find it was better while deckbuilding, because you had more alternatives (off-topic: I think the same of Village Rites and Altar's Reap).

Either way, that's not a real problem. At least it kills that awful overused Gurmag Angler.

StopShot on Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Crimson …

Given some of the card throwbacks as spoilers, I had a card idea. A lot of people are comparing the black removal spell as an upgrade to Doom Blade. Doom Blade’s mirror opposite is Purge. (Technically, its the opposite of Terror.) White has also had similar removal in the form of Cleansing Ray.

So the black spell is a better Doom Blade and the red spell is a better Shock. What if for white they wanted to make a better Disenchant, but also make it a thematic throwback card to something iconic to Innistrad? (ex. Victim of Night)

Choose one -

  • Destroy target Vampire, Werewolf or Zombie.

  • Destroy target artifact or enchantment.

Definitely need some Inquisition of Kozilek to round out the Thoughtseize for your discard suite (I recommend a full playset).

4 Ultimate Price is a mistake. There are better removal options in GB colors (like Victim of Night , Go for the Throat ).

Have you considered running the OG assassin, Royal Assassin ?
