Black Sun's Zenith Discussion

tysonup on Olivia Voldaren EDH Vampire tribal (Vampire Queen)

DRmagic2017 I did considered Damnation in the past but I dropped the idea because of its cost and somehow Decree of Pain or Blasphemous Act does the job nicely. As for Languish, I felt like Black Sun's Zenith is a better version of it. =)

PhthisisClock on Poison-Tip Archer?

I used to run Blood Artist, but this build didn't really benefit from slow life-gain, and I guess I thought reducing opponent's life was preferable to gaining, if I had to choose one. The Archer is akin to Hapatra, in the sense that it is treated very much like an enchantment. Archer's ability is most useful with tons of tokens in play (which happens most of the time) and then dropping either Black Sun's Zenith (risky) or Soul Snuffers (less risky). Generally speaking, lifegain doesn't do much for this build, as it's either too quick to need it, or so slow that it's losing anyway.

Infect is huge with proliferate, as long as nobody gets their feelings hurt about you playing infect... at least a Viral Drake for the extra proliferate ability.

Vigor is the lowest price it's been in years.

Strength of the Tajuru is great for +1 counters and Black Sun's Zenith for just a point or two should leave your guys alive and you murder your opponents next turn.

Lux Cannon is cute but Orochi Hatchery can win a game

PhthisisClock on Poison-Tip Archer?

4 weeks ago

I've been tweaking my Negative Creep Modern deck for quite a while, and have all but decided to abandon Throne of the God-Pharaoh in favor of Poison-Tip Archer. Basically I'm seeking advice on whether it's worth bumping my avg CMC up with Archer, or if could/should focus on some other mechanic that exists in the deck already, by bumping up copies of something else. If I go with Archer, I'm likely going to put another copy of Black Sun's Zenith. I like that my build has many ways to win as-it-stands, so I don't really want to narrow that. At the same time, I realize that it may need more focus... any suggestions appreciated.

Enral minor note, generally use USZ to describe Blue Sun's Zenith, BSZ means Black Sun's Zenith.

Charcoal Diamond sucks dong, coming in tapped kills it.

Take a look at Carnival of Souls because you've got some life to play with

Tainted Remedy might be good if the meta gets too life-gain-y

If you want stupid high costed spells for fun I'd throw in a Worst Fears.

Mind Slash could be good to fuck up a blue player's hand.

Shadows of the Past is really good because you're constantly saccing shit for free deck digging, scry is super under-rated but in the late game you can almost guarantee a good top deck.

Bojuka Bog and Tormod's Crypt are important because you don't have a way to deal with graveyard decks like Muldrotha/Sidisi/Karador/Meren.

Leaden Myr isn't that great of a mana dork, Ogre Slumlord is okay but a lot of your sac'd creatures are tokens so I don't know how useful it'll be.

If you want another mana accelerator there's Nirkana Revenant.

Torment of Hailfire can just win you the game too.

Necropotence might be just out of your budget but boy is it a fucking good card.

Black Sun's Zenith is another boardwipe that gets around indestructible and it shuffles back in for later which is always good.

Ideas:

+Urza's Incubator - cheeper minotaurs

+Fervor - haste for all

+Living Death - protection against board wipes

+Lightning Greaves - protection and haste

+Sign in Blood/card draw in general

+Phyrexian Arena - card draw!

+Rakdos Charm - just a good card

+Gratuitous Violence - dmg incorporated.

+Anthem of Rakdos - dmg incorporated.

+Furnace of Rath - dmg incorporated.

+Havoc Festival - dmg incorporated. Plus the most Rakdos card

+Mana Flare - speed things up a bit

+Greed - more card draw

+Pain Magnification - could be good for keeping 0 cards in their hands

+Shared Animosity - can be super strong

Traps:

-Black Sun's Zenith -expensive

-Cut // Ribbons - expensive

-Torment of Hailfire - expensive

-Ifnir Deadlands - I just don't get why its here, a swamp seems better

Cards to look into removing:

-Aether Vial - seems almost slow? Just doesn't fit in with the deck, but by all means, test it and see where it goes! Having fun with the cards is the most important part anyway.

-Azor's Gateway  Flip - also doesn't quite fit, but maybe? I've never personally played with the card.

-Obelisk of Urd - another one to playtest, I've thought it wasn't good enough in my tribal decks to get a spot

-Trepanation Blade - Very random card. Very random. I don't know what to think. Probably very good, though.

-Consuming Vapors - Don't quite get it, but might be a good way to gain life. Seems dependent on your playgroup.

-Impale, may I introduce you to murder?

-In Garruk's Wake - very expensive

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Maybe board:

-Cruel Reality: Just a trap, you have much better cards and it is extremely expensive.

-Dictate of Erebos: Maybe? I think you have better options

-Black Sun's Zenith: Maybe not. Has a much better place with Cabal Coffers.

-Cut // Ribbons: Nope. See above.

+Flurry of Horns :)

-Firestorm: too expensive IRL

+All the minotaurs, they're minotaurs?

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Sorry about the formatting, it hates me sometimes.
