Power-towershell on I thought people liked gaining life

ZendikariWol, I would add Rain of Gore, but then my life gain doesn't drain them like I want it to, I don't own one, and I might end up cutting the red, but I have done dumber splashes. bazaarmaker, I completely forgot about Alms Beast and he would be a perfect fit in the deck! Most of the cards in the list I threw together are thing I already own and what isn't in there isn't expensive to get and I love the idea of the beast.

what do you think about Alms Beast?

DarkStarStorm: The plan is exile as much as I can and swing away. I was thinking of throwing Alms Beast into the mix since there shouldnt be much opposition for the downside to really matter. It would definitely help close out the game.

skinnyminny123: Thank you for your comments!

I ended up cutting Alms Beast because it never ended up working in the way I wanted. Decided to add two Archangel of Thune because that is a really solid card for a lot of reasons. Added Serra Ascendant and Aerial Responder for a little more lifelink at the bottom of the curve.

I don't like Felidar Sovereign because it feels cheap to me, I don't like effects you can't interact with as an opponent, so I don't run them in my own deck.

For this deck I don't want to run any direct damage effect outside of combat damage, even if it makes the deck suboptimal.

Also rebalanced the deck to be more focused on 1v1, instead of the casual multiplayer it was focused towards before.

I've had the chance to play the deck a dozen times or so now, and it is probably the most fun 60 card deck I've ever played, and has close to a 50% win percentage, which is great.

Boza on Everlasting Torment. Useful?

This is not really a rules question, but let me give it a shot. This card says 3 things:

  • No lifegain
  • No prevention
  • All wither, all the time.

For the first one, the easiest way to abuse it is by playing cards that gain the opponent life as a drawback. Think Alms Beast never having a drawback.

For the second one, it is a bit useless, since it depends on the opponents deck. If they run any prevention effects, they are useless, if they don't - that part of the text is useless.

For the third one, it is a very useful ability to have when you have lots of non-combat damage. Additionally, free creatures from things like Goblin Assault and tokens get a lot better for you.

Either of the two cards is pretty sick with Alms Beast though...

Alms Beast is an ok card. With it costing 4 mana and it being a 6/6, it does grant the player the ability to have it's creatures gain lifelink. Which is something you don't want. I would say to replace it with something else but it has the capability to do a great combo with Tainted Remedy. Here's some suggestions.
