Act of Treason Discussion

Nice try here, a word of advise,try and find what your deck is going to do,it seems like you want to do a little too many things at the same time,like steal your opponents creatures and playing your own,and destroy lands!

I suggest cutting on the Act of Treason effects all togetherInstead of destroying your opponents lands ,why not use ramp like Harrow or Rampant Growth and playsets (or 3 ofs) of Kinjalli's Caller , Drover of the Mighty ,Otepec Huntmastersome nice cheap dinos to consider :Ranging Raptors,Charging Monstrosaur, Kinjalli's Sunwing ,Goring Ceratops,Verdant Sun's Avatar,Wakening Sun's Avatar,Thundering Spineback

some other spells that go with the theme :Dinosaur Stampede,Commune with Dinosaurs,Savage Stomp

about the lands,the desserts don't contribute to your plan,try some cheap tap lands like Jungle Shrine,Rugged Highlands,Blossoming Sands,Wind-Scarred Crag or go the extra mile and hit some check lands like Rootbound Crag,Sunpetal Grove,Clifftop Retreat

Hydronvanquisher on How does Sudden Spoiling affect ...

1 week ago

Hi all, I've been reading up on Sudden Spoiling for a little while now and believe I have a basic understanding of it. However, I am still a little confused on how it would play out in the following scenario:

My opponent is the active player. Let's say I have a Zulaport Cutthroat and a Butcher of Malakir already out on the battlefield and my opponent has Void Winnower, Prized Unicorn and a Skyrider Elf on the battlefield.

My opponent decides to attack me with everything. After he declares attackers, and finishes casting any spells, he passes priority. I presume this is where I would either declare blockers or cast an instant and then declare blockers.

Could I cast Sudden Spoiling and then since the spell temporarily negates the static ability of Void Winnower (meaning I can block with an even CMC creature), declare my two creatures as blockers and then proceed?

I'm assuming I can but wanted to confirm I wasn't overlooking anything.

As a new wrinkle, what if during my casting step (prior to declaring blockers and prior to casting Sudden Spoiling) I decide to cast Quicken and then Act of Treason on his Void Winnower? I then decide to cast Sudden Spoiling and let combat proceed. What happens to his already declared Skyrider Elf if the CMC is even? He's declared it as an attacker but now that I have a Void Winnower on the battlefield (albeit temporarily) under my control, is it still an attacker or does it remain tapped but no longer have the ability to proceed to combat damage?

Sorry if this is a bit convoluted but I wanted to make sure I have an understanding. Thanks for any advice/info you can all offer.

I have put together a similar list before Wild Slash is an another four copies of shock with extra text, Act of Treason can do stuff if you desire it, and I would suggest having a late game engine to have a really good top deck in the late game perhaps a single copy of Past in Flames. This can be fun but understand how badly you lose to combo.

I've considered Act of Treason but I preferred Traitorous Blood; trample, you know :)

As for Mystic Retrieval/Pull from the Deep; by themselves I agree with you, they're better than Archaeomancer. However, combine him with Cloudstone Curio (or Erratic Portal), and you can have as many recursions of spells as you want.

Hi NV_1980,

I'm glad some of my suggestions helped! :)

I've got few more;

DarkSepho on ☢Suicide Squad☢

Thank you for your comment Hyperalgialysis.

  • I could definetely try 1 or 2 Black Cats. There are better hand disruption option for sure, but this is not a competitive deck and most importantly I'm a cat person, so I can try it :P
  • Altar's Reap and Merciless Resolve are really good options and I was already thinking to replace 1 or 2 Viscera Seer with one of these. Btw I'm rarely in mana flood, so i like Altar's Reap, but I have yet to try it against more controllish decks
  • I already thought about Bone Splinters but Terminate, Act of Treason and direct damage from all the creatures already do the job really well. It could be a good side option against decks with many removals, but I think I would prefer going with 4x terminate in that case.
  • Tattered Mummy is good for this deck, but I see it as a worse Perilous Myr. It could maybe replace some Mudbutton Torchrunner to make the deck faster

Wicked_N_Irish on Prossh's Workshop

The only thing better than sacrificing tokens to Prossh, is saccing your opponents creatures to Prossh. I like to run a lot of Act of Treason & Hijack type of effects to both deal with problematic creatures, and to fuel Prossh's damage.

Catalog9000 on Dragon Egg and Opponent's Control

3 weeks ago

This came up the other day, and we'd like clarification for when it is bound to happen again in the future.

I had a Dragon Egg on the Battlefield. My opponent Act of Treasoned it, and sacrificed it.

Who gets the 2/2 Dragon Token? My opponent controlled the Dragon Egg, but I owned it.
