Breathstealer's Crypt


If a player would draw a card, instead he or she draws a card and reveals it. If it's a creature card, that player discards it unless he or she pays 3 life.

Have you considered Breathstealer's Crypt ? Not only does it make people reconsider drawing creatures but it reveals what everyone's drawing.

voidfire2215 I've decided to keep Breathstealer's Crypt in my sideboard for when I know my opponent[s] will be playing a creature heavy deck. I mistakenly had it slotted in a game against a creatureless Talrand, Sky Summoner deck, and that didn't work out for me too well, haha. But when the card does perform, it seems to perform well, so I think I'll keep it around. Thanks again for the suggestion.

So how did Breathstealer's Crypt work for you? It's one of my pet cards and I'm always interested in how it performs for others.

May I suggest Breathstealer's Crypt ? It's a personal favorite in my nekusar deck

Nice deck! Much better than my first Nekusar deck. Although as someone who has been playing with our zombie wizard overlord for 7 years, I have some advice.

Firstly, I would definitely get Windfall and cut Torment of Hailfire .

It’s a good deck, but there’s definitely some cuts you could make to make it a little more focused. I love the inclusion of Breathstealer's Crypt ! I think it’s a very underrated card and it can be brutal against a creature heavy deck.

Do you have a specific way you want to win? Do you you want a huge burst of draw damage in a single turn? Or a slow painful death that your opponents can do nothing to stop?

i love Breathstealer's Crypt in this deck along with the standard Peek and Gitaxian Probe

Knowledge Pool is a pretty significant alteration to how the game plays, as it prevents players from casting the cards they want.

Breathstealer's Crypt changes how drawing works, removing the element of surprise.

Contamination changes how lands work.

Crumbling Sanctuary changes all damage into mill.

Solemnity wrecks havoc with all kinds of counters.

cdkime: I really like those suggestions, Library of Leng and Helm of the Ghastlord will most certainly find a home in this deck. I see the power of Phyresis, but I'm not looking to gain the hate of infect in my meta. Sigil of Sleep is also one I'll be keeping an eye on, though I've also bought a Breathstealer's Crypt for better creature control.
