Beacon of Unrest Discussion

RyProv on Korvold's Frenzy [Sac/Reanimator EDH]

Have you considered Phyrexian Delver over Zombify? I guess its the same CMC dilemma as Beacon of Unrest, but you can sac the delver (and even recur it). I usually get pretty good multiple use out of it even with the life cost. I would still consider a Stitch Together or Nim Deathmantle over Zombify. (which nim has the nasty potential of going infinite with Ashnod's Altar)

So, multimedia, I just got the madness commander deck today, and there are so many cards that I could add to the deck (such as Overseer of the Damned , Beacon of Unrest , Archfiend of Spite , and more)! Having this, I will soon be changing the deck from Rakdos' Crazy Demon Party to Chainer's Demon Summoning Possie! So, in your humble opinion, what should I cut/add?

Profet93 on Let the Nightmare Go On..

Cut Swamp to go to 38 lands, 39 is too much

Cut swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade and goes with coffers and non-swamps

Cut swamp for Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or any utility land like cradle, strip mine, etc...

Murderous Rider > Hero's Downfall

Hellfire is such an expensive card that hurts you, cut for something cheaper like Dead of Winter , Mutilate or Toxic Deluge .

How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? One Rest in Peace and you lose unless you make them proactively discard it which isn't always possible. Some suggestions of budget and nonbudget include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , Blast Zone etc...

Ill-Gotten Gains seems like it can backfire a large portion of the time. What is the purpose of it, to put creatures in yards or general recursion? If you're looking for recursion of black cards, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed can do the trick. General recursion can be down with Yawgmoth's Will . Artifact/Creature recursion can be done with Beacon of Unrest (not suggesting beacon, but just an idea to note).

Some cards that I run in my The Haunt of Hightower deck that may be of use:

Reanimate or Animate Dead , depending on budget and collection; with so much discard you'll likely find some juicy targets in someone's yard. Same goes for Beacon of Unrest .

Liliana's Specter , hits the table with the discard, flying body just a bonus. I'd use this rather than some of your more expensive single target discard spells as this is multiplayer and its hard enough to punish the table playing discard.

Tasigur's Cruelty again, hits the table and you're not likely to be paying retail on this.

Geth's Grimoire Good way to refuel as you strip peoples' hands.

Bolas's Citadel better with Haunt as the lifelink there keeps this going but this is still an obscene card.

Rankle, Master of Pranks the haste, evasion and multiple modes are all good.

Waste Not More resources for you as opponents lose theirs.

More ramp is never bad; Charcoal Diamond / Wayfarer's Bauble plus since you've got Tomb/Coffers, Expedition Map sees that combo come together more frequently.

Not sure about Dismember , Hero's Downfall or Vraska's Contempt would probably be useful more often in this spot. Though I suppose if your meta plays a lot of indestructibles, then Dismember may be the answer.

LadyZ Thanks for the tip. I considered adding some recursion in, namely Storrev, Devkarin Lich . But Beacon of Unrest seems just flat out better.

LadyZ on Savra, Queen of the Golgari Aristocrats

In my opinion every aristocrats deck should have some reliable recursion, a good addition could be Beacon of Unrest . And any green deck that runs any sort of recursion should run Acidic Slime . Both of them under a dollar but each can help your deck out
