Davinoth on Prosper's Purgatory [Treasure EDH]

     elliotmward97: So I actually used to run Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Tibalt's Trickery and Withering Boon but didn't feel I was getting enough mileage out of them. Imp's Mischief and Deflecting Swat are both great in any black and/or red deck, I just don't have a copy of either unfortunately lol.

     Hadn't considered Wishclaw Talisman but I'm definitely going to now! Especially with Goblin Engineer/Goblin Welder is a pretty nifty combo. =D

     Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos is a card I really liked thematically, but in practice just never felt good to draw. Even going infinite with Dockside and Technomancer requires your opponents to have at least seven Enchantments and Artifacts - which totally is gonna happen sometimes, but definitely not all the time.

     Chandra, Torch of Defiance is another card I used to run (and quite liked) but got cut for Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as Daretti just synergized with the deck better. Chandra may yet make it back into the deck, though!

     As for cuts, I'm not totally sure but probably Hellkite Tyrant in favour of Ancient Copper Dragon. Tyrant is great but also extremely telegraphed. I'd probably look at Professional Face-Breaker or either Mayhem Devil or Nadier's Nightblade (depending on your playstyle) as a cut for Imperial Recruiter. And although Goblin Welder is a favourite of mine, it's likely on the chopping block if I do pick up a Ragavan.

Fullmetal2040 on Mari, the Killing Quill

I would take out deadly rollick for a card like Force of Despair or Slaughter Pact. you dont get the hit counter from Mari when you exile an opponent's creature because it is not dying it is being exiled. i've killed 6 creatures at once with force of despair

If the reason you have Withering Boon is to trigger Mari it wont because the creature never hits the battlefield therefore it never dies, otherwise im not to sure why you have a creature counter spell, i guess for commanders eh. i think it would be better to have another kill spell imo.

she's not in the tribe but Marionette Master synergizes really well with Mari. so does Underhanded Designs & Deadly Dispute

I have built my own Mari deck and played a decent amount of games winning a few. Enjoy, she's really fun!!

Has this deck been in your rotation for 9 years? Awesome! I have my own love bug that just won't quit: The Red Terror: Akroma's Manifesto

Each other enchantment has "At the beginning of your upkeep, you may sacrifice this permanent. If you do, you lose 5 life. If you don't, you lose 1 life and discard a card.

Withering Boon would have been a perfect name for this. What a shame.

Create a legendary naya boar.

griffstick I've honestly never seen Withering Boon before. I might have to try that in my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck. That life loss is a bonus there.

White - Soltari Visionary and Prison Term. I find so much value in these cards. Prison Term is so good at taking down many combos. Soltari Visionary is gonna hit over and over again because of it having shadow.

Black - Sadistic Sacrament, this card is so good at taking out a combo deck. If you kick it then you just destroy a deck. Withering Boon, this card is actually really good. Most creatures have a really good ETB effect. Withering Boon will stop that from happening by countering it. In most cases it is better that a kill spell.

Hey! Love to see a fellow Toshi player's list. I have a list up on this site but it's severely outdated, so I'll just give you my top recommendations. I have been playing Toshi for a while and know of a few power cards that may be of interest:

Withering Boon is a great gotcha, they never expect it.

Sudden Spoiling is another great piece of disruption that also helps kill hexproof things.

Crypt Ghast is insane. Not only does it double your mana, you can also extort all the spells you're casting.

Depending on your meta, Imp's Mischief can put in a lot of work.

And for more 'fun' cards:

Necrologia is a big risk, but if you can resolve it the payoff is tremendous.

Thrilling Encore is great even at 5 mana. Stealing a whole board of creatures is a lot of fun.

Reiver Demon and Crypt Ghast and Cabal Coffers and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Black loves being black lol. It's also my favorite color. I love cards that destroy one trick pony combo decks. Black has cards for this like Sadistic Sacrament Bitter Ordeal and Praetor's Grasp. Black has extra turns spells too, Temporal Extortion. Black has counter spells Imp's Mischief and Withering Boon and Stromgald Cabal and Deathgrip. Blacks wants all the power Necropotence and Bolas's Citadel and Worst Fears. Life for power K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth. Black also has the best artwork Deliver Unto Evil and Withengar Unbound and The Meathook Massacre
