Ancient Grudge Discussion

The reason I preferred Destructive Revelry over Ancient Grudge was that it takes out Blood Moon . Which by the way, what would you suggest for counterin Blood Moon ?

How is Dismember more diverse and less expensive than Fiery Justice ? They both cost 3 mana, though Dismember does have those phyrex costs which can amount to 1 mana.... But it can only kill '1' creature whereas justice can slaughter a pile or it can kill that 1 5/5 creature. Justice is more diverse and advantageous card-wise to me.

Aurelia's Fury is amazing and here is how: it can eliminate multiple dink creatures, tap big ones ( or kill in late game when I got abundance of mana, ) can make teh enemy unable to cast certain junk during their own turn, and also can disable their casting during my turn if I have the mana and then cast what I want there after safely and they have to do their instant during their turn which absorbs a turn.... OR I can just X burn the enemy to death..... and IT IS ALL INSTANT :D

I likey

nbarry223: hey thanks for taken a peek at me deck :D

The most difficult decks for me to beat are the ones running Blood Moon and heaps of discard.

Counter burn decks are also a bear. But I was thinking of putting in 4 Sun Droplet s in side board for that: which is what I have done in all my other decks lol and it works wonders...

Another deck I have a problem with is Scapeshift with that volcano land burn combo crud.

I hope I can get some great suggestions to counter these :D

I am really liking Loxodon Smiter and Thrun, the Last Troll . They would make great counters to my weak points.

ignore Wrecking Ball , Fulminator Mage , the Ghost Quarter s, and Temporal Extortion . These were filler. They will probably be replaced with Sun Droplet s, Loxodon Smiter s and Thrun, the Last Troll s is what I'm thinkin.

Don't play Aurelia's Fury .

Destructive Revelry should probably be Unravel the Aether , for Keranos, God of Storms , or you could play Ancient Grudge . I personally like Grudge over Nature's Claim or Revelry, because it's the best artifact removal outside of the wraths.

Temporal Extortion and Wrecking Ball are pretty bad sideboard cards. I recommend cutting them both, and if you want to play land destruction board in Sowing Salt or Molten Rain . That said, I think 3 Fulminator Mage should do the trick just fine.

What are the Ghost Quarter s for? They don't really have a good purpose in my mind.

Cards to consider: Thoughtseize /Inquisition of Kozilek , Dismember (which should really be maindeck), Slaughter Pact , Rakdos Charm , Golgari Charm , Batterskull . I'll post more when I remember them.

I'm not the biggest fan of Fiery Justice in such high numbers. I would play 1-2 maximum, and try to have more diverse removal. I might play 3 Path - 2 Justice - 2 Dismember, and that's leaving out Abrupt Decay which is insanely good. The issue with Fiery Justice is that it's expensive for a removal spell, and has a downside in the opponent's lifegain.

  • So the first thing that comes to mind is there is no cheaper or budget substitutes. That being said, you can find other options that have the same philosophy behind them. Garruk Relentless  Flip has seen play in some lists, and is something the deck might use as a substitute for Liliana. He acts as removal, then becomes a token generator and toolbox. Phyrexian Arena could sub for Bob, but it comes down a turn later, and can't swing for 2. Tarmogoyf has no substitute, but you might be able to get away with upping the number of Scavenging Ooze s and Courser of Kruphix or Kitchen Finks . Most of those tools are favorites of the classic BG "Rock" decks, but could see play in a cheaper Jund.


  • Batterskull is a more powerful top deck in the late game of a lot of match-ups. Most people don't generally have Artifact hate main board, so it can sometimes steal free wins. ScOoze has a lot of utility, but eventually it came down to I needed to cut a card and adding Grim Lavamancer , I need to lighten up on the use of my GY . Rakdos Charm is good, and I've played with it in the past, but in the matchups where it's good I have better options. The artifact hate isn't as good as Ancient Grudge , and the Twin match up is already hella good. I liked the GY hate aspect of it, but to be honest across the ptq season there weren't enough GY based strategies to warrant cards outside of ScOoze. Golgari Charm Acted as a board wipe against so many decks, but also hit things like Splinter Twin or Leyline of Sanctity .

You're fine Femme_Fatale, I'm aware that you don't keep up with the pro metagame so I figured I'd just link to a resource and give you some more current information.

TBH I don't know WHY affinity is so favored these days. As someone who has an affinity deck I get blown out all the time. Kataki, War's Wage , Creeping Corrosion , Shatterstorm , Shattering Spree , Ancient Grudge , hell even Vandalblast all hose the archetype. Dunno.

None of that is saying that Midrange, as part of the aggro spectrum, isn't the most powerful of it's peers, although Tempo will give you a run for your money. Honestly I'm liking the way that Temur looks for midrange, the cards they have to work with are amazing for a tempo/midrange hybrid. Mardu however, seems way more aggro oriented than midrange in their capabilities. Mardu has 4 bombs in their colors that fit that description that easily come to mind but it has far more fast aggro tools.

Fun Fact: In Nordic/Scandinavian countries, "taking an arrow to the knee" meant that you are getting married/already got married. It refers to when we propose, we fall to one knee, comparing it to when a man gets shot in the leg, he, of course, falls to one knee.

Gspot. Thanks for the support. I was thinking of getting Vandalblast as an alternative, butt I think Ancient Grudge looks good as well, possibly better.... Of course I don't have either card, so It will be added to my acquire list. Thanks for he suggestion.. Do you play Bogles?

Try out 1 or 2 Master of Etherium , cutting Memnite s. They are terrible lategame topdecks, and most lists have gone down to 6 0-drops. The master is another "lord" that gives you more action when you have a slow hand. You should also consider playing more Etched Champion . I also recommend you give maindeck Thoughtseize a try, cutting some combination of the colored spells.

One could probably write a book about Affinity sideboarding, but I'll point out some strong cards I think you should be playing. Extra Etched Champion and Master of Etherium should be there to come in against control and combo, respectively. I recommend you consider sideboarded Thoughtseize and Spell Pierce , as disruption is very nice for combo and control. Blood Moon is sweet, as it almost doesn't hurt you (no manlands, but that's manageable). Ancient Grudge is the best Affinity hate in Affinity.

You seem to have 5 Steel Overseer s in your 75. Hopefully this is not what you registered. :)
