Viewing revision 38. There is a more recent version of this deck.
K´rrik is one of the strongest mono black commanders and his ability fits absolutely well in the black color pie. As you can use your life as a resource he can finish the game very quickly with the right cards or just be grindy because of the reanimation spells. How do you get the right cards? Well we are playing black so we are going to tutor what we need because we don´t need luck, we just need enough life.
This deck will use its commander as an enabler for each infinite combo and trying to finish in early-to-mid game. K'rrik is also a good attacker and blocker. He can be a one man show if you have to block creatures and will bring back life, which is mana and his ability to get bigger and bigger just by playing black spells makes him fearsome.
This deck is completely based on its commander and can win the game very quickly on turn 2-3 but is also strong in midgame. The key cards are Aetherflux Reservoir, Doomsday, Peer into the Abyss and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. We will use the ability of K'rrik to pay with life points instead of mana. We will try to get the four mana in turn one or two so we can cast K'rrik with six life and four mana. After this we are going to finish the game with an infinity combo of devotion dmg or Aetherflux reservoir. It is important to keep an eye on our life as a resource because if we don´t have enough life we can´t finish the game so don´t waste your life if it is not necessary.
As already mentioned K'rrik has lifesteal and gets stronger for each black spell, so attack if possible to get life back or just keep him as a blocker if the enemies playing decks with combat dmg.
Use the recursion spells for K'rrik to get a comeback, for Vilis to draw a lot of cards or for Chainer to finish the game.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel Devotion DMG:
Bring Chainer back to the battlefield - Using his ability to bring back Feeder and Gray, Sacrifice Gray and bring him back again till you win the game. Possible to use Chainers effect as an instant (with yawgmoth's will use Chainers ability before enemy draw step)
Also possible without Buried Alive.
If someone tries to remove Chainer, you can pay 9 life again to bring back gray.
Play Doomsday with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and note some prerequisites (If you can draw more than one card and have more life then required and need some mana, change Zuran Orb with dark ritual)
Instead of Zuran Orb and 2 lands you can also just attack with K'rrik to get the 4 life back but make sure he doesn't die in the process and you shoult still play a 0 cmc spell for the aetherflux life at cast - or just use both if you need extra life.
Try to finish in the same turn where you played doomsday and use one of the cantrips, senseis divining top, tainted pact or sign in blood. If you do, try to gain life after doomsday resolves by attacking with K'rrik or starting the pile with more life.
20 life , 3 mana , 2 lands and if you want to finish in the same turn a cantrip or draw spell is needed as well as 2 or 6 life more after doomsday resolves or 4 - 8 life more before doomsday resolves.
We should try to hold a hand that generates four mana quickly and at least one part of our combo and a tutor. There are even hands that can win in the first turn, but you should aim at turn two or three to go infinite or try to play till midgame because of the grind potential.
Try to play K'rrik in turn one or two so he can block and let you pay life for the spells. It is easily possible to finish in turn two or three if you have the right cards in hand, if not just try to hold a hand with some draw or ramp an get to the midgame. Prepare yourself to win in one turn with some of the protection cards if possible.
It is no problem if you keep a hand with just one land if you can produce four mana quickly and cast spells with K'rrik.
If you don´t have the budget to buy all these cards, there are few budget cards which you can play instead
