Bad Moon Discussion

VincentVonVeltschmerz on extreme budget 4

I really like this one too, and you'd have the mono black deck you always wanted.

Consider: Culling the Weak, Nekrataal, Bone Shredder and Bad Moon

Ghoulcaller's Chant vs. Disentomb to pull 2 instead of 1.

Screeching Skaab vs. Withered Wretch. Wretch is the only creature in here focused on exiling from the grave, which is good if an opponent is running reanimate but as the only card in here that does that, I'd just ditch it and go with the self mill idea. Maybe think about finding a couple cards with flashback that help retrieve an instant/sorcery from the grave in case you throw out Zombie Apocalypse or Living Death. I'd suggest getting rid of the counterspells but that's just me.

Nightcreep is a cool card but seems pointless in here. You don't have any swampwalk, and it'd help your opponents out if you have Bad Moon out. I could see maybe some kind of combo with Bubbling Muck but trying to play one card off another card that you may or may not have is risky.

From the maybeboard, I wouldn't bother with Forgotten Creation, Graf Harvest, Liliana's Elite or Servant of Tymaret. The crow is perfect for the mill theme. I'd argue that Door of Destinies could be better than Coat of Arms, but ideally switch out Jinxed Idol for it. The other cards are just really good.

Also Bad Moon should absolutely be ran as a 4 of, especially in a deck so reliant on 1/1s.

Door of Destinies doesn't work with tokens. You could use Bad Moon instead. Also have you thought about Scytheclaw and if you wanted to play blue, you can play Grip of Phyresis.

No problem, here is what you can do:

  • -4 Elixir of Immortality This is a sideboard card against mill

  • -3 Doubling Chant I can see why you'd want it, when it is good it is really good. But it is expensive and your board has to be good already to make this worth the mana. In long and drawn-out games with a boardstall this could be what breaks the tie, in every other game you'd probably want something else. While tempting, I think your deck is better without it. You can also dismiss your dual lands and have much better mana this way

  • -1 Thrumming Stone A basic rule of thumb in Magic is play 3 copies of a card you want to see once and 4 copies of a card you want to see in multiples. 1 Stone in play is enough, more is already overkill. It is generally very rare to ever run 4 copies of a 5 mana card without any mana ramp

  • -2 Marrow-Gnawer Good to break a boardstall or pump your Pack Rat, but 4 copies is a bit much for the high cost. I'd probably play none, but if your games go long this might be good

  • -2 Ratcatcher 6 Mana is too much for a card that has to survive a turn before doing anything

  • Cut lands to ~22

  • Swap Despise for Duress. Black is the color with the most answers to creatures, but you have no artifact/enchantment removal or counterspells. That is why non-creature spells are more dangerous, you want to discard the likes of Wrath of God instead of some creature. YOu can have Despise in the sideboard if your opponent runs almost only creatures

From this point on there are basically 3 ways you can take the deck

  1. Discard and control. Chittering Rats, Rotting Rats, Ravenous Rats. Pair that with some Ninjutsu like Throat Slitter and recycle their enter the battlefield effects, have backup removal like Fatal Push or Victim of Night to keep their board under control. You kill them slowly and painfully by killing their threats and shredding their hand

  2. All-in Relentless Rats. Close to what you already have here, maybe throw in a Metallic Mimic or 2. You basically go super-wide and try to land your rippler. Ravenous Rats, Pack Rat with Thrumming Stone, ~8 discard spells and 4-5 removal spells to keep you alive until your board is overwhelming. You'll have around 14-16 Relentless Rats in your deck this way

  3. Aggressive Rats. Swarm of Rats, Mogis's Marauder, Typhoid Rats, Bad Moon. Probably splash Red for Gobhobbler Rats and Lightning Bolt. In this build you just try to kill your opponent as fast as you can. I can't really say Rats are very impressive as an aggressive tribe though.

Sometimes a random idea is all you need ;) good to see unoly strength getting some love :) as to be expected of you, the deck looks very well rounded. But, you know what weenie decks love? Anthems! Weenies love anthems ;) I'm thinking Bad Moon :) stay frosty!
