Beseech the Queen Discussion

johnwayne1488 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH [PRIMER]

1 day ago

So i added Hooded Blightfang, I also wanna test it out as it's seems as an agressive 3 drop! Liliana's Standard Bearer also, if i can get 3 card for 3 mana i'm fine with that! For Bastion of Remembrance, I do run Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent and Beseech the Queen to get it. It's a non-creature so sometimes harder to remove on the spot when you're combo-ing out and it gives a 1/1 creature if you're missing 1 token to get a loop going!

My deck is more of a pod deck I guess, it's missing some expensive pieces as of now. I love your take on Hapatra, it looks pretty competitive and all good cards, your exclusions are accurate too!

Maybe Dryad Arbor with that Green Sun's Zenith you have ! Some cards I would cut but depends on your meta too like Null Rod but I understand why you play it! How's Fiend Artisan ? I feel like it could be a good add even tough i run Birthing Pod!

Being in black and green and using a secret commander, I am surprised to see you using very little tutors. I would highly recommend the following (a mix of budget friendly and more expensive tutors depending on what you're going for): Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Beseech the Queen, Grim Tutor (thank goodness for that recent reprint), Worldly Tutor, Birthing Pod, Eldritch Evolution, and Fauna Shaman. Gamble might be worth a look as well. Also, you have two Explosive Vegetations in your decklist.

I think the concept for this deck is pretty cool, but tutors would be really helpful for cards like Phage. I know, some are REALLY expensive, but two good budget options are: Diabolic Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, and Final Parting. If you're willing to spend a bit more, Beseech the Queen would work, too. You might want to add an alternate wincon, like Etrata, the Silencer. (That is, of course, optional, but it helps sometimes.) As for your graveyard problem, most of the time, the solution would be counterspells. For Bojuka Bog, you could toss in a Trickbind or a Stifle.

Cairn Wanderer could be useful here, and to mess up your opponents messing with you, you could add in some hand-removal stuff. Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Drill Bit would all work. Or Thought Erasure, for some top-deck control.

I hope the construction of this goes well for you!

Nice deck! I would recommend the following changes;

Swap the 3x Dark Betrayal and 1x Beseech the Queen in the mainboard for the 4x Opt in the sideboard.

Cut 3 lands for 3x Snapcaster Mage.

Change some of the basics and maybe even the Fetid Pools and Canyon Sloughs for lands the Alpha Duals in your colours (Badlands, Underground Sea and Volcanic Island), or, for a more budget friendly option, the Shock Lands from Ravnica in your colours (Blood Crypt, Steam Vents and Watery Grave).

Providing budget alternatives is not that simple because the deck is balanced as is and changing any single card would alter its equilibrium. I will try my best, but do keep in mind that with the following changes you will need to play the deck a lot slower than before. Without free counterspells you will need to wait for when you can leave mana open, and so on and so forth. Hopefully, the fact that all the decks in the tournament follow the same budget restrictions can make up for this. Here are my budget changes:

Mana Crypt and Mox Amber: any two-mana rock, like Arcane Signet and Mind Stone.

Force of Will and Fierce Guardianship: a copy of Foil and Dispel. Depending on your specific meta, you could consider Mental Misstep.

Mana Drain: any two-mana counterspell. My choice would be Countersquall.

Ancient Tomb: a basic Island.

Cyclonic Rift: Echoing Truth. This can bounce a single permanent or an army of tokens, which seems particularly useful in your case.

Damnation and Toxic Deluge: your choice of Languish, Whelming Wave, Evacuation or AEtherize.

Dark Confidant: I once used Disciple of Deceit, which was suboptimal. Alternatively, Looter il-Kor or any draw spell.

Intuition, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor: Diabolic Tutor, Forbidden Alchemy and Beseech the Queen are okayish.

Training Grounds: Heartstone is the closest comparison, but do keep in mind it works for your opponents as well.

These are all direct substitutions. I took the cards you mentioned and replaced them with their budget counterparts. If you think some of them aren't good enough (and in most cases they are not), then you can consider including something completely different instead. I'm thinking about cards like Propaganda, Torpor Orb, more removal, more card draw, more ramp. You have the privilege of knowing the decks you will be facing, so you can tweak the deck according to your matchups.

If you want to be prepared against a token deck, try shaving some single target removals or counterspells for a few extra board wipes. Just be extra careful against Meren because they tend to play a lot of Fleshbag Marauder-like effects, which is something this deck really struggles with. Make use of your haste enablers to kill your opponent during the very first turn you play Lazav, before he or she has the opportunity to play those cards.

I wish you good luck for your tournament, and let me know about your results!

Hey, Obosh, the Preypiercer can really increase the damage output of your entire deck because Greven is odd 5 CMC. Don't use the companion ability if you're just playing it as a card in the 99. However, my suggestion is to use Obosh as companion because of Greven as well as many cards that are good with Greven are odd CMC.

Odd CMC creature base example:

Kiki can repeatably make a token copy of a nonlegandary creature to sac to Greven. Kiki is also an infinite combo with Conscripts for infinite Conscripts to attack or Celebrant for infinite attack steps.

Other Odd CMC cards:

If you like the idea of using Obosh as companion then if you would like I can further help you with adds/cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

I used to have a deck built similar to this. Pain Magnification was always a fun card. Another fun way to get your opponents to mess with each other is Cruel Entertainment. If you're looking for more tutor power, try Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen

Hey, nice start. I suggest cutting a few subpar reanimation spells for more lands and more low CMC ramp. 31 lands is on the low side for a 4.6 avg. CMC.

Lands/ramp for $400 budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Unholy Indenture
  • Immortal Servitude
  • Resurrection
  • Miraculous Recovery
  • Rise to Glory
  • Blood for Bones
  • Bond of Revival
  • Breath of Life

Another thing consider would be to cut some the least good high CMC creatures for tutors to get the better cards into your hand especially Buried Alive and repeatable draw sources. Razaketh, Elesh, Sheoldred, Vilis, Titan, Ashen, Primordial are the best ones. Kokusho and Yosei want more consistent sac outlets that can be reanimated/recurred such as Viscera Seer.

Tutors/draw for a $400 budget to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.
