Chainer WIP

Say Uncle

Got back into magic again and started rebuilding the deck. Offer any suggestions or criticism! No deck is perfect and I'm aiming to constantly update this list. Not running Contamination due to playgroup but you can easily slot it in.

Suggestions

Updates Add

out <> in

Bloodchief Ascension <> Anvil of Bogardan Bloodchief takes too long to come online or gets destroyed before it gains value

Geth, Lord of the Vault <> Vilis, Broker of Blood too much mana investment, which I'd rather use to develop board or for chainer activations

Junk Diver <> Snow-Covered Swamp Land back in

Mirage Mirror <> Reanimate Same idea as geth, mirage mirror can sometimes do cute plays but most of the time it's a win more card

Crypt of Agadeem <> Wurmcoil Engine Crypt seems great but it’s just bait. Wurmcoil in as backup for Sengir Autocrat and for lifelink in a pinch.

Geier Reach Sanitarium <> Noxious Gearhulk Geier reach wasn’t impactful enough. Noxious in for more removal and life gain

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip <> Snow-Covered Swamp slow draw, which rarely flipped but useful effect. Land Back in

Altar of the Brood <> Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Neat card but belongs in a token deck more.

Dimir House Guard <> Imperial Seal Dimir acted as an tutor for 4 cmc or sac outlet in a pinch, replaced for a more straightforward tutor

Zulaport Cutthroat <> Ayara, First of Locthwain Upgraded Cutthroat, has one per turn sac+draw in a pinch, 3 devotion for Gary.

Soldevi Adnate <> Night's Whisper contested slot, originally took out adnate as I was lower on the creature side, now the ramp may be needed again as I’m up to 28~ creatures again

Jet Medallion <> Gilded Lotus jet medallion at most reduces 1-3 mana per turn and doesn’t help any ability activations. Not really a storm deck so can't abuse it to it's fullest. Gilded lotus fills a similar niche and generates 3b which is great.

The Abyss <> Walking Ballista Abyss is great. Originally had Triskelion in this slot but I think Walking Ballista has better utility as a standalone card in my deck due to the mana doublers. If I can get infinite mana I only need Ballista to win.

Cavern of Souls <> Bolas's Citadel cavern wasn’t impactful enough to warrant a slot and was sometimes detrimental, testing bolas citadel

No Mercy <> Mikaeus, the Unhallowed no mercy either stopped people until they found their removal or they just attacked into it once they hit infinite. Meta dependent but mikaeus back for now

Mindcrank <> Nim Deathmantle mindcrank is a great card but unfortunately it doesn’t advance our game plan as a stand-alone card. Nims has all around better utility.

Sangromancer <> Sign in Blood sangromancer provided some nice life gain in a pinch but may be redundant with the other forms of life gain now.

Erebos, God of the Dead <> Viscera Seer Removing Erebos for now as the draw effect was fairly slow. Viscera seer for another cheap sac outlet on a stick and scry effect has its uses

Charcoal Diamond <> Arcane Signet upgraded version of charcoal diamond. But a downgrade in the regard that there are no foils

Waste Not <> K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth waste not doesn’t offer any immediate impact and potentially could be useless, great when works with other cards such as oppression. Testing Krrik for now.

Imp's Mischief <> Gravecrawler imps mischief is too conditional. Cute when it works

Sudden Spoiling <> Carrion Feeder sudden spoiling is too conditional and fairly mana heavy. The effect is great and could be game changing. Testing cut temporarily. Maybe worth trying Darkness

testing Oppression <> Aetherflux Reservoir Aetherflux combo's with Bolas's Citadel+Sensei's Divining Top. Can also storm out with Gravecrawler

Solemn Simulacrum <> Yawgmoth's Will

Mesmeric Orb <> Rune-Scarred Demon
