Bile Blight Discussion

PsuedoIntellectual on World Class Abzan

I love Abzan! Here are some suggestions:

1:Improve your creatures

Cut Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Den Protector, and a copy of Courser of Kruphix.

Add 4 Tarmogoyf and more Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

Sylvan Caryatid would be helpful, too.

2:Improve your mana-base

Cut Temple of Malady and Temple of Silence. They're just bad.

Cut Sandsteppe Citadel.

Cut Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes.

Add Overgrown Tomb, Godless Shrine, Temple Garden, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, and Verdant Catacombs. A playset of each.

3:Improve your spells

Cut Languish and Tragic Arrogance and replace them with Damnation or Wrath of God.

Cut Despise, Abzan Charm, Bile Blight, Silence the Believers and Ultimate Price.

Replace them with Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, and Dismember or Maelstrom Pulse. Any of these two removal spells should be a playset(4), but all of them are just about the same.

3:Sideboard for Modern

Cut literally everything.

Add 4 Nature's Claim and Creeping Corrosion.

Stony Silence could be useful too.

If you choose to run Go for the Throat, sideboard a third removal option that can hit anything.

Add Relic of Progenitus or Bojuka Bog.

Leyline of Sanctity can hose just about any deck.


I couldn't really fit this stuff in without you cutting some other useful stuff, but cards like Kitchen Finks, Dark Confidant, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or Blind Obedience could worm their way into your deck.

Bigkiki7 on Mono Black Hailfire

Ok, I see potential but there are some kinks that need out.

1 The Tron lands are a great Idea, but the chances on naturally drawning all 3 of the different lands is quite low, I recommend adding some land tutoring with such as Expedition Map

2 Waaaaay too much discard, even if you force discard every single turn they will eventually stick a threat, and if they do its going to slowly beat you down. So I'd cut some discard and put in the removal such as Fatal Push, Geth's Verdict, Bile Blight, and maybe even Murder

Hopes this helps

What about Bile Blight, Smother or Victim of Night rather than Doom Blade, all are decent removal and probably less limited, but they are still situational. If you weren't running delve creatures I'd suggest Murderous Cut, while on the subject of delve I'd suggest Soulflayer since your playing the Nighthawk it could be nasty.

i like the inclusion of Sudden Spoiling. i'd put a Bile Blight or 2 in the side if you could. love decks like these. how does Shadow of Doubt work for you in the main? has it served better than being in the side? +1

saturn999 on Zombie Swarm

try Conjurer's Closet. especially with Sidisi, Undead Vizier. tutor every turn! it's great! and, Volrath's Stronghold. so good for getting back you creatures you want. i'd find a way to put Bile Blight maybe? but this deck looks awesome and flavorful! +1

saturn999 on Budget Esper Control

that's looking better. if it was me, and this is just me mind you i'd go something like this...

3x Disfigure 2x Go for the Throat 1x Tragic Slip 3x Mana Leak 2x Negate 3x Opt 3x Inquisition of Kozilek 2x Duress 3x Lingering Souls 3x Serum Visions 3x Supreme Verdict 3x Detention Sphere and then add creatures for finishers to your tastes maybe

-3x Arcane Sanctum keep the rest of your lands or go to a 4 of each on the duel lands? not sure the ratio you'd want or need for the spells you have.

sideboard maybe 2x Bile Blight 1x Declaration in Stone 2x Hurkyl's Recall 3x Ceremonious Rejection 2x Spell Pierce 1x Esper Charm 1x Sphinx of the Final Word 3x Anticipate

i don't know if this helps and i'm not trying to change your list for you. but, i think this keeps most of the list you had while maybe adding some things that could help make it stronger. idk, let me know. the main thing is to have fun with it whichever way you go and just enjoy it! take care!!!

Soot Imp isn't good enough in terms of cost/power. Against combo i have already discard and Lost Legacy.
Bloodsoaked Champion can't block and i want the game go long. It is good for more aggro decks. Also doesn't synergize with Murderous Cut and Profane Command (which is btw very good card, natural 2 for 1 and won me few games already:).
Slitherhead can be good to buy some time and boosting creature can be very useful especially for Gifted Aetherborn against Lightning Bolts. But bolt could be played in response to scavenge as kind of 2 for 1. Discard or Ruthless Ripper seems as better turn1 play to buy some time. In future i plan to play Thoughtseize instead of Duress in nonbudget version.
Regarding Bile Blight agree, that instant is way more better than sorcery and i should play it. You are second in suggesting it, will buy it and find some place for it (instead of Disfigure maybe).
Note: my friend have two Fatal Pushes and borrowed them to me, currently playing one instead of Disfigure and one instead of Victim of Night. But with some way to easily trigger revolt would be better, equip Lashwrithe away from 0/0 Germ is one way (fetch land is obvious, but don't own any).

Your playing mono black so Soot Imp can be a useful anti-combo card, at the very least it eats removal and lets you play a better threat. I also think you need some better turn one plays; Bloodsoaked Champion isn't too expensive and Slitherhead can be a chump blocker that will later boost a creature for free. Against tokens you almost always want Bile Blight, don't underestimate the importance of instant speed rather than sorcery.
