Blightning Discussion

MrBoombastic on Jund (post BBE unbanned)

1 week ago

Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip was the bad replacement for BBE and doesn't need a place in the deck. He didn't see much play before the unban either.

Playing so many 4-drops makes Dark Confidant a lot more risky to play and lessens the amount of targets BBE has. I know she always hits something, but more is always better in this situation. She needs to be our absolute top end.

Blightning was a good card in the days of old, when midrange decks such as Jund were dominating. Seeing how fast the Modern format is today, I don't imagine Blightning having the same impact.

I'd also much rather play the 4th Liliana of the Veil over Chandra, Torch of Defiance, since she's easily the best thing we can cascade into.

You might want to include a Maelstrom Pulse somewhere in the main. It works wonders against tokens, Jace, the Mind Sculptor and other annoying stuff.

That's my 2 cents. Good luck with the brew.

Thanks for the suggestion, Caharin. I like Kolaghan's Command. It requires the same mana as Blightning and allows you to choose 2 out of 4 outcomes, but it is 16X more expensive than Blightning. Considering that I have 4X Blightning are you suggesting that I replace all 4 for Kolaghan's Command, or just 1 or 2? A set of Kolaghan's Command would cost over $50.

What about Kolaghan's Command over Blightning?

I would argue that Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah would be the most capable of winning the game. If you run things like Bump in the Night Countersquall Lightning Bolt Vapor Snag Blightning etc when bolas comes in it should just outright win. I would lean away from burn, and focus on control.

So even at 3x, Boomerang would still be a Upheaval at instant speed which is banned from the format. I personally feel that giving everything overload would be a bad idea. I'd like to just see the mechanic on new cards without having a card give it to everything. Overload isn't really a safe mechanic to just hand out to everything.

An overloaded Rise from the Grave would be fun to use. Normally reanimates a creature but overload you get each creature and they're all zombies. Zombie decks would enjoy that.

Personally, I want Overload Duress and or Blightning. Those types of cards that tend to do poorly in our format as opposed to spells that do really well.

Ahh, Fists of the Demigod would definitely work with the overall deck concept. I don't have any yet, but I am going to add it to the Maybeboard until I get some.

Also I see your point on the Blightning. I have some bolts in the sideboard, I think I will try swapping the Blightning this weekend and see what happens. As for discard, I think tossing in some Duress to the sideboard might be useful in case my opponent has a lot of creature removal. Either way, Duress is cheaper than Blightning. Thoughtseize perhaps even better, but I don't own any.

thx redwizard,

when you want play without the moon for more casual kitchentables games you can add more discard like Wrench Mind or Blightning or removel and boardsweeps.
