Bump in the Night Discussion

Hyperalgialysis on the risk of fire

13 hours ago

Aside from what the above poster mentioned, this deck might benefit from a splash of black. Bump in the Night is really good, and Vexing Devil pairs great with Claim / Fame

Contaminated Ground and Pooling Venom will help. Sulfuric Vortex Bump in the Night and burn spells will speed up the clock

Is this a more creature based aggro deck made with the distinct intention of not being your average burn deck? If not, I wonder at the absence of things like Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, and other burn staples. If so, then that's why they're not there, no worries. However, either way, why not Bump in the Night? That's essentially a black burn spell with potential (very) late game upside. Also, Searing Blood as a better sideboard answer to small creatures than Godo's Irregulars. Rakdos Charm as a multi-tool? It could act as budget sideboard graveyard hate, destroys a troublesome artifact, or even causes that extra bit of burn against a deck that relies on creatures. You know, at the expense of hurting yourself a bit, but if you're that close to dead you're probably not winning anyway, so who cares about losing three life yourself?

Why Tarfire instead of another burn option? I know you're maxed out on lighting bolts, but if just burning the player isn't good enough (Bump in the Night, Lava Spike) and Rift Bolt is too slow, what about Forked Bolt? It allows you to do the same thing as Tarfire, but also offers the option of taking out a creature with one toughness and also hitting a player for one, or killing two 1/1 creatures at the cost of being a sorcery. Maybe take it out and add in another Seal of Fire because of the revolt trigger? Thoughts? +1

Bump in the Night would make a good addition for a bit more damage output and Blade of the Bloodchief. maybe drop Blood Crypt for Rakdos Carnarium

Ok, so Mindmelter is only in there to push the last few points of damage in. I was running a Slither Blade instead for a while, but it did not work well when I used Illusory Wrappings or Reduce in Stature on the tree so I decided to swap Slither Blade out for Mindmelter. The best way to kill your opponent tho is Bump in the Night.

Rhadamanthus on With Necropotence and Solitary Confinement ...

Solitary Confinement only prevents damage, and doesn't stop the life loss from either Necropotence or Phyrexian Arena.

The key thing to know is that damage and life loss are two different things. Losing life is the most common result of taking damage, but it's also possible to lose life without taking any damage (Phyrexian Arena, Bump in the Night, etc.) and there are even some situations where damage doesn't actually cause life loss (the Infect ability on Glistener Elf and friends is the best example).

It is time to spruce this deck up a bit we should consider Bump in the Night, and Gonti's Machinations
