Welcome to my commander deck featuring the pairing of Erinis, Gloom Stalker and Scion of Halaster

I decided to choose Erinis as it's really effective at getting through thanks to its deathtouch. Its low cost also means we aren't super punished for repeated deaths. It's also often 'low power' enough to not warrant a targetted removal spell. The same goes for our background, Scion of Halaster never gets a target, but provides us good value each draw step, often binning us a land for Erinis to bring back.

Our background is a good start to filling our graveyard with lands for Erinis to get a target. To help out, we have a small self mill package from Bramble Familiar, Crawling Sensation and Nyx Weaver, which all do double duty. Since milling is unpredictable, we have numerous ways to recur cards we may wish to keep or replay. Undertaker allows us to discard lands for Erinis, Dryad's Revival comes with flashback for a second go, Wildest Dreams is our big X spell for recursion and Nissa of Shadowed Boughs getting super big off all the landfall triggers.

So what are the best lands to go for. On our lands, we have cyclers in Barren Moor and Tranquil Thicket to discard and recur easily. Nurturing Peatland and Roadside Reliquary for repeatable card draw. Emergence Zone for repeatable flash. Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Rogue's Passage helps get Erinis through any blockers. Fabled Passage and the New Capenna cycle provide us with double landfall triggers which can get pretty nutty when they get going. Finally, I threw in Argoth, Sactum of Nature (alongside Titania, Voice of Gaea  ) to get some fun meld action going on!

So what benefit do we get with all these lands? Firstly, Landfall triggers. Zendikar's Roil gives us a 2/2 for each land. Scute Swarm gets out of hand fast quickly. The Tireless duo Tireless Tracker and Tireless Provisioner provide us with good mana sinks for resources. Tormod the Descecrator generates a token each time we recur a land. Classic Rampaging Baloths alongside absolute powerhouse Greensleeves, Maro-Sorcerer provide us some beefy tokens also. Blackblade Reforged gives us a commander damage route to victory, especially when coupled with our previously mentioned evasion lands

There is also a small land sacrifice theme with Titania, Protector of Argoth as a secondary plan. Squandered Resources provides a one time mana doubler for our lands. Constant Mists sacrifices a land on buyback and becomes a nightmare to deal with if our opponents don't see it coming. Braids, Arisen Nightmare pretty much draws us a bunch of cards each turn as people despise sacrificing lands, which comes as a bonus to us. Slyvan Safekeeper does exactly what he advertises, protects our creatures with shroud.

The final avenue is X spells for when the game goes long and we have a bunch of mana out. Damnable Pact specifically 'targets', meaning this is card draw for us or player removal if they are at a low enough life total. Spinning Wheel Kick is a big dump, but can deal with many creatures at once with Erinis' deathtouch ability. Diabolic Revelation nets us a huge tutor effect. Exsanguinate either ends the game or provides us a huge life boost to give us a huge safety net. Torment of Hailfire is a tried and true method. To round it all off, personal favourite card Genesis Wave easily finds a home here with too for all the fun!

Thanks for checking out my Erinis, Gloom Stalker and Scion of Halaster deck. I love the simple nature of Erinis' ability which makes it super flexible. If you enjoyed this deck, please see my other active decks below. Alternatively, check out my profile for all my retired decks too!
