Quote from GloriousGoose »Defile looks at all Swamps you control, not just Snow-Covered Swamps. I think you're underrating the card compared to Tragic Slip, though. Slip is obviously much better in your deck than in mine, but I would think there are times where Morbid can't be triggered so the Slip is insufficient. Defile has a longer ramp up but should be able to keep reasonable pace with the toughness of problematic creatures like Gaddock Teeg or Anafenza the Foremost.
Quote from tarotplz »Are there any more cards like Entomb, Buried Alive, Final Parting and Corpse Connoisseur?
Quote from tarotplz »Also, I've been thinking about replacing Ashnod's Altar with something else, it just feels like making 2 is so much worse, than making B with Phyrexian Altar or literally any other Sac Outlet with Pitiless Plunderer on the board. Is that crazy?
Quote from tarotplz »Lastly, what are your thoughts on playing some other cheap Reanimation spells aside from Reanimate? something like Animate Dead or Victimize/Exhume? I think that might make the deck less reliant on the commander and allow me to play a stronger game if I don't have enough mana available.
Quote from tarotplz »The Oona player upgraded his deck and combo'd out with infinite manan 4/6 games. I managed to stop him in one with Phyrexian Revoker and ended up winning that one. I might need some more anti combo techs....
Quote from Egbert82 »Karn seems a very nice addition.. too bad his -2 doesnt work in commander (yet) that would be a turn one clock
Quote from OP_Sigma »There's a new rule in edh, wish effects don't work anymore.
Quote from tarotplz »Most of these I've already considered. I like Fellwar Stone a ton in general, but I'm not sure if mana rocks that add 1 manan are enough for this deck, they feel like a little raindroplet on the hot stone that is Chainer's thrist for BBB.
The tapped rocks have always felt weird to me. I never tried them, so I might be wrong on this, but they do seem kinda bad. Also again, just 1 mana might not be enough.
Quote from tarotplz »EDIT: Also I used to like Burnished Hart, until people started to kill that thing way to often before I could crack it. It's actually terrible to play a 3 mana 2/2 that does nothing
Quote from tarotplz »On the note of this deck being extra mana hungry, I'm currently on the lookout for fitting ramp pieces.
Quote from tarotplz »Btw guys, on the note of Razaketh, the Foulblooded, which Rituals aside from the obvious Dark Ritual do you think will yield the most mana on average?
Cabal Ritual is always a bit worse than the OG one. However getting to Threshold should be pretty easy in this deck.
Culling the Weak seems pretty good, but it does take up a creature that could aswell be sacreficed to Raza. Assuming a Gravecrawler loop, this is almost as good as a Dark Ritual, giving BBBB but taking away B to bring the Gravecrawler back again.
Songs of the Damned has a super high ceiling, but it could also be terrible if the graveyard is not all that filled up. Has anone here played with this before? How much mana did it give on average?
Rain of Filth This one seems crazy powerful aswell. However, this is likely dead until the turn you actually try to win. It will also criple us if the combo we're going for is disrupted.
Lake of the Dead is also an option I guess. It has the advantage of being usefull at other stages of the game aswell. However it kinda seems like this is significantly worse than a basic Swamp if we're not planning to go off relatively soon, as it does put us a land behind.
Lion's Eye Diamond should be mentioned too I guess, Would be pretty sweet here, but I don't think I can afford one of these
