Midnight Banshee would be good, as well as the aforementioned Massacre Wurm.
*Contagion Engine, and Black Sun's Zenith would also speed things up...

Apr 13, 2019TEMUJIN posted a message on Help with Massacre Girl MBC deck. What creatures to run?Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Apr 5, 2019Good topic!Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Best designed Commander... Derevi, Empyrial Tactician
She's in Bant colors,arguably one of the best if not the best color combinations in all of EDH.
Uncounterable, Flash, skips Commander Tax, grants every creature in her deck with a very relevant ability.
Extreme versatility, can head either Control, Goodstuff, Voltron, Stax, or degenerate Combo decks with ease.
Truly outstanding in multiplayer games, and so effective/abusive that she was banned in 1v1.
She's even scary good when heading Voltron or Combo decks comprised of nothing but commons...
If anything though,... she was a bit "over designed"...

It may be time to enter the "Brave New World" and add some new Generals to the PDH Commander Pool.
With 20 uncommon rarity Planeswalkers in the set, it poses the question of allowing these cards to be
ran as Pauper Commanders...
I think their inclusion would generate much more interest in the "format" and lead to many new and
interesting deck designs/themes not seen before in Pauper EDH.
They're very reminiscent of the old Vanguard "Commander" cards from the late 90's with their
static Global/Local/Triggered abilities. I'm pretty sure that's what MTG R&D were basing their
design on/referencing when they came up with these new Planeswalkers.
- The Wanderer
- Teyo, the Shieldmage
- Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted
- Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage
- Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor
- Narset, Parter of Veils
- Tibalt, Rakish Instigator
- Jaya, Venerated Firemage
- Arlinn, Voice of the Pack
- Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter
- Angrath, Captain of Chaos
- Nahiri, Storm of Stone
- Kaya, Bane of the Dead
- Dovin, Hand of Control
- Vraska, Swarm's Eminence
- Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
- Samut, Tyrant Smasher
- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer
- Ashiok, Dream Render
- Huatli, Sun's Heart
- The Wanderer

Promises to be a good set for Pauper EDH.
New cards of note:
Ob Nixilis's Cruelty
One of the best Black removal spells to come along in quite some time, Dismember meets Unmake.
Handles 95% of the creatures you'll see in Pauper EDH.
Pseudo Prowess and Scry 1 with every non creature spell you cast. Helps red move through their
deck quicker. This is the closest thing red has ever had to an Augur of Bolas in pauper, and in fact
would compliment the Augur very well when ran in tandem.
Other interesting playable cards:
Crush Dissent: Blue Mystic Snake? Four mana is a lot for a non hard counter, but it's not an
entirely bad card. There are better options in Rewind and Foil.
Kaya's Ghostform: This could definetly see some play in the right deck, as it is efficient costing
only a single B mana, but it has stiff competition in Undying Evil and Unearth.

Some strong Decks in my local meta:
We mostly play multiplayer with occasional 1v1's.
1v1's are either really close games or complete blowouts.
Everyone's decks are really well thought out and tuned through playing,
and some are truly terrifying capable of taking down actual EDH decks.
- Vampire Nighthawk
- Sengir Vampire
- Spellheart Chimera
- Vizkopa Guildmage
- Mistmeadow Witch
- Korozda Guildmage
- Stromkirk Captain
- Inkfathom Witch
- Crypt Champion
- Nightscape Battlemage
- Fusion Elemental
- Dragonsoul Knight
- Reflector Mage
- Composite Golem
- Thornscape Battlemage
- Sigil Captain
- Drove of Elves
- Flesh-Eater Imp
- Marsh Crocodile
- New Prahv Guildmage
- Fanatic of Mogis
- Gilder Bairn
- Vampire Nighthawk
Mar 7, 2019Benjameenbear, welcome aboard!Posted in: Variant Commander
Nightveil Predator is Ascended Lawmage's evil brother.
Something to consider is, do you want to focus on 1v1 or multiplayer, as this will make
a difference in your overall card selections over time.
Just get in some games and see what works for you and what doesn't...
*** With your present mana curve and the amount of draw your running, 36 lands is fine.
Opal palace and Bojuka Bog would be good additions to your mana base.
Mar 5, 2019Posted in: Variant CommanderQuote from Reaper9889 »Cards that may be of interest:
Soul Stair Expedition - basically, 1 mana for returning 2 cards a few turns down the road. I personally think of the card as being basically free, since it will eat up a mana when I have one left over. This means that the only cost is the time, but time is blue/black controls "thing". If I should suggest a card to drop for it, it would be Disturbed Burial (you need to spend 7 mana to equal what you get from 1. To do better you need to spend at least 12 and you have a mostly similar card anyway).
Echoing truth - I would take this over Boomerang. Easier to cast, and I imagine you are more often worried about a token army than a land, which can be bounced in other ways anyway.
Victim of Night hits basically everything hit by Doom Blade (but is a bit harder to cast) and more besides - like in your deck, doom blade fails to hit 19 out of 29 creatures while Victim of Night only misses 3 - and is cheaper than rend flesh. The main reason I recommend this over doom blade is that it is very unusual for it to be dead in a match-up and more importantly, it can nail way more commanders, which I feel is important in the format.
Rush of Knowledge with your commander is 6 cards, which is absurdly efficient. If for some reason something happend to your commander, you still got many other 5 mana creatures and a few 6 mana dittos (the latter are unlikely to be in play though).
All good suggestions Reaper9889!
Soul Stair Expedition is a unique card, Disturbed Burial is just so good to me late game, used primarily on my
cmc 1,2, and 3 creatures.
Yeah, I ran Echoing Truth in here since the beginning, Boomerang is just one of my old pet cards that I
always go back to. Crypt Rats and Evincar's Justice are my weapons of choice for tokens/ swarms.
Now Victim of Night I can get aboard! It is superior to Doom Blade and should have been in since the start.
If Rhystic Study wasn't in the deck, Rush of Knowledge would be.
Mar 4, 2019Updates on this deck:Posted in: Variant Commander
Rotting Rats Symetric discard not as good as what Mesmeric Fiend provides.
Ravenous Rats Just outclassed by Burglar Rat.
Augur of Bolas Undeniably a good card in the right deck, just whiffed to much in this one.
Undying Evil One shot Recur while good/fun is surpassed by the raw power of the Hymn.
Snap This deck runs more than enough bounce effects, just a tad more removal was needed.
Repluse Good card, but i've found that instant bounce spells needs to hit more than creatures.
Exclude Another Good card, but the options granted by Merchant Scroll are way more powerful.
Altar's Reap Always a nice surprise, but you have to wait for that window of opportunity.
Mesmeric Fiend Very nasty little card, gives information while disrupting an opponent,
some people have absolute ***** fits when I use this little $0.10 card on them.
Burglar Rat Far superior to Ravenous Rats. This is the sister card to Liliana's Specter.
Slum Reaper Finally, an ETB creature with a true Fleshbag Marauder effect for pauper.
Hymn to Tourach Should of been in since the beginning, such an evil/crippling card.
Everyone has a plan... until they get Hymn'd.
Chainer's Edict Should of been in since the beginning, a tenaciously effective card.
Boomerang Overall this has proven to be superior to Repulse in all situations.
Merchant Scroll The sheer versatility of this card,.. in this deck,.. has become undeniable.
Rhystic Study Straight up Raw draw power. It just puts you miles ahead of the opponent(s).
Feb 25, 2019Looking good Upkeep!Posted in: Variant Commander
Humbler of Mortals lets you get damage through in late game protracted/stale boardstates, and as a creature/enchantment can be recurred.
You run a decent amount of enchantment/creature ramp, 6 mana shouldn't really be an issue with your list.
Try Primal Huntbeast over the Conifer Strider, it's more resilient making it a better target for aura buffs.
As an alternative to Bramble Elemental give Wickerbough Elder a try, he's big and carries a nice shotgun.
*** On a side note, one of my favorite non-enchantment cards that I run in my Hedge Troll deck is Horned Helm. Kind of a secondary Rancor.
Feb 24, 2019Love It! I have a similar deck with Hedge Troll as the Commander.Posted in: Variant Commander
It has a kind of a Sigarda-esque playstyle to it, tenacious "all-in" enchantment style voltron.
Lotus-Eye Mystics, Yavimaya Enchantress and Humbler of Mortals put in work.
River Boa and Mire Boa are both surprisingly good in these style decks.
Broken Fall and Spidersilk Armor would also serve you well.
*** Qasali Pridemage and Vines of Vastwood are 2 cards that never fail to disappoint.
Feb 13, 2019Posted in: Variant CommanderQuote from Khalar89 »Great compilation!
with the last few sets came a lot of exellent staples for the pauper cmdr format.
DOes this list still get updated?
Yes, there are quite a few absolutely playable cards that have been released in the recent sets,
...and yes, the list still gets updated.
I intend to increase the lists to 50 Creatures/50 Non Creature spells for each color.
Input is both encouraged and welcomed from any and all Pauper EDH players.
Jan 11, 2019WOTC showing some love in Ravnica Allegiance.Posted in: Variant Commander
Lawmage's Binding A Flash Arrest. Excellent card.
Shimmer of Possibility Basically a Sorcery speed Impulse. 4 card dig is 4 card dig, instant or not.
May try to include:
Clear the Mind is a powerful/rare effect for Pauper EDH being both Graveyard hate or Deck recycling.
