Asceticism Discussion

Chaostrash on Hapatra EDH

First off, Bojuka Bog is mandatory in any black deck. Second off, I think the deck looks pretty noice except there seems to be two problems: protection and recursion. There are a LOT of sac outlets and -1/-1 counter effects, but if things start happening where you can't stop people from killing off not only Hapatra, but some of your good creatures, and there is no way other Victimize to get them back, you may as well throw in the towel. Two cards you may want to consider:Meren of Clan Nel Toth, because there is a lot of saccing going on, and Asceticism, for protection for your creatures, maybe even politicizing that regenerate ability. Also not to mention Cryptolith Rite, since there are most likely a lot of tokens on your side. Either way, the deck looks to be pretty well thought out!

ScrOuch -

Thanks for the suggestions. Vexing Shusher is for sure going onto my shortlist, I completely forgot about that card. I might add the boots, but I already have two pieces of protection that I would consider better than it. However, it might be able to go in due to the lower mana cost.

Unfortunately, I will not be adding Asceticism strictly because it costs too much mana and I am trying to lower the curve. As for draw options, I am leaning more towards wheel effects because the deck already has lots of wheel support (also might try to make the deck work without Yidris), and while Jori is nice, she only draws you an extra card each turn.

I may go back to Asceticism but the three mana difference means that is most likely all I can play that turn. Plus, Craterhoof Behemoth and maybe Avenger of Zendikar are the only non elementals that are essential to winning. I just smile (on the inside) when my opponent wastes a removal spell on anything but Omnath. The regeneration effect with Asceticism was what gave me pause. Has that proven useful?

Steely Resolve has a lower cmc, but wouldn't Asceticism be objectively better if you want to run that sort of effect? Protecting ALL of your creatures while adding some measure of wrath protection seems like it would be worth the extra mana.

Do you have issues with spot removal? I am hoping VixenX will respond to my question regarding this. Asceticism is in the possible additions section. I am experimenting with Steely Resolve. Asceticism allows for regeneration (green and one colorless) but the extra three mana cost is the difference to me.

I see you are playing Heroic Intervention. Is this a nod to Blasphemous Acts? Is there another reason you need the indestructible facet to the spell?

Mana Crypt is good but not critical. The fetch lands to me are more valuable. I also play Crucible of Worlds, Splendid Reclamation and Ramunap Excavator as does VixenX.

Hi, Thanks for the great deck and primer. I've been playing your deck online for a while now, and I feel that during long games I am running out of steam and need some graveyard recursion. I have added Reclaim which is cheap and helps get key cards back to our hand. Any thoughts ? To make our creatures more resilient I have replaced Swiftfoot Boots by Asceticism. Finally, have you been happy with Verdurous Gearhulk in this deck ? I am tempted to remove it for another tutor ( Eldrich Evolution ) or card draw ( Rhystic Study). In any case, I am looking forward to see how your deck evolve with time, it's a lot of fun to play.

Love Yidris! But I realized myself that when playing him he normally is the first target of EVERY removal spell. So I began to try to protect him as much as I can. In Yidris' color combination are a ton of cards that can give you additional protection like:

Vexing Shusher: Can't be countered AND protects every spell you cast. Totally awesome!

Swiftfoot Boots: I know that not everyone is a fan of Lightning Greaves since they are not allowing you to enchant Yidris yourself..but the boots are totally fine!

Asceticism: Is also a perfect card to offer some protection even if they get lethal damage.

Now for card draw. One problem with Yidris is that he's only good if you have enough cards in hand. Therefor I'd recommend Jori En, Ruin Diver since she ALWAYS triggers when you cast a cascade spell. Also Rhystic Study is something I wouldn't underestimate. Of course you don't want ALL your cards in hand but at least a decent variety of possible next spells.

Hopefully, that helps!

yeah I forgot I mentioned Asceticism like you said it's powerful but not effective as I thought it would be with my precious snake tokens :(

Tenacious Hunter on the other hand can be effectiveI've been debating on running Protean Hulk again but I rather run Mickey again and find Woodfall Primus and blow up all their lands. I'm not taking any chances of getting jumped in a 6 player game again now my friends know how dangerous Hapatra really is XD
