Butcher's Glee Discussion

triproberts12 on Toshiro's Samurai Guide - Harikiri Those Instants!

While Toshi does give card advantage, powerful stand-alone card-draw spells are still important. I really like Skeletal Scrying and Moonlight Bargain for being instants, here. Also, I think some instant-based protection like Boon of Erebos , Abnormal Endurance , Butcher's Glee , or Dark Dabbling would be good. Finally, I'd recommend Victory Chimes , Isochron Scepter , Runechanter's Pike , Spellbinder , Sentinel Tower , Mirari , Haunting Hymn , and Aphotic Wisps as good synergy cards for a black instant deck.

The 3 Gnarled Scarhide (they'd die) and a Butcher's Glee . If the deck was made more Heartless Summoning-focused I'd also cut the rest of the Butcher's Glee and 2 Titan's Strength (or any 3 other spells) to make room for the rest of the Kragma Warcaller s and Ragemonger s, since they're what let the deck go crazy with Summoning. It could also be worth experimenting with cutting 1 or 2 lands, Summoning + Ragemonger will give you discounts and 20 is enough to get you to 4 lands on curve around 60% of the time (probably the max amount of mana you'd need with Summoning).

Whispersilk Cloak & Bladed Pinions & Cranial Plating!!! & Executioner's Hood & Vorrac Battlehorns

Dece equips that boost power like Bonesplitter & Darksteel Axe & Vulshok Morningstar

Rite of Consumption DOME 'EM


Howl from Beyond & Shade's Form

Blessing of Leeches & Butcher's Glee & Skeletal Grimace & Unhallowed Pact & Supernatural Stamina (Regenerate is generally great, especially when repeatable)

Slagwurm Armor if you want Yargle to be a 9/9 for the memes

Something to consider might actually be mono-black control with Yargle as a finisher. Maybe I'm wrong and you could just outspeed people with Yargle's IMMENSE POWER but I think he's a bit too high cmc in colours that don't necessarily allow for much evasion/protection to just get in ASAP. Typical mono B control stuff looks like this:

Corrupt + Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Pestilence + Crypt Rats + Evincar's Justice

Feel free to disagree tho, 2 swings and Yargle kills someone without any buffs in PDH which is pretty DANK. Just going all in on evasion could probably just do it in some metas. Fear & Intimidate are available in black plentifully to boot. Sleeper's Guile & Traitor's Clutch.

Happy brewing, looking forward to see what you make of it!

MagicalHacker on Strange combos

Butcher's Glee is $0.14 but I think it is a super cool card because of the infinite combo it allows. In response to the ability from Volcano Hellion, give it lifelink, so that if it deals 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 damage to you and itself, the net result is that you gain that much life.

I would remove Butcher's Glee and Coat with Venom for more lands. 24 lands is generally the standard for a deck. If you don't enough enough lands, you won't be able to cast your big creatures in a timely manner. And I say Glee/Venom because you don't have enough early-game creatures to make those cards really worthwhile.

Do you have the same sleeves as me? "mmm Brains"? lol, love them Zombies.

I tried the same route once with the Whip of Erebos but found I hated the "exile it at end step" and thus NEVER used it... especially with Zombies... if nothing else swap it for the Bows's in your sideboard. It also works against your 3x Colossus's, 4x Gravecrawler's, and the 4x Amalgam's...

If it is the Lifelink you want I'd try the route of something like Grotesque Mutation, Butcher's Glee, Cruel Feeding, or Cutthroat Maneuver... all at instant speeds.

Figured i'd mention a couple other thoughts for you....

I'm kinda surprised you have no +1/+1 for Zombies with a Diregraf Captain or Death Baron or Cemetery Reaper's (sideboard thought's)

a Blood Scrivener + Rooftop Storm = Fun With Zombies.

you have the Gravecrawler's .... Grimgrin, Corpse-Born?

and I will always mention these 2 for a Zombie deck without them Geralf's Messenger and Undying Evil, both are fun.

Good luck with the Zombies...

TheMountainLion on I'm trying to bring the …

4 years ago

Some things I'm trying to decide between are:

*Bump in the Night or Pillar of Flame (If I choose to keep in Satyr Firedancer the choice should be obvious)

*Pyre Hound or Bloodfire Enforcers

*Devil's Play or Ravaging Blaze

*Butcher's Glee or Dark Dabbling or Wail of the Nim

*I'm thinking of not using Lightning Bolt in favor of any of the 2CMC instant or sorcery cards (too many to list) that deal at least 3 damage to save on $.

Other cards I'm trying to decide whether to leave in or take out are Satyr Firedancer, Howl of the Horde, Dash Hopes, Brimstone Volley, Searing Blaze, and Mizzium Mortars.

(You may notice all the cards mentioned here are at x2, which is so I can see which ones I'm thinking about)

Any and all thoughts are welcome (I realize the mana is low but I thought the deck could pull it off?)

P.S. I'm tying to keep the deck at $30 and under, but it NEEDS to be $40 and under.

Providence - If your goofing around it will be funny to make your life total 26, especially if your opponent gets you to a low life total.

Could splash black for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. Her ability to gain life is good and her second ability to destroy stuff when your life is over 30 is even funnier. Could be even funnier to combo her with Tree of Perdition to gain 13 life.

If you splash black, you can get Grotesque Mutation and Butcher's Glee to pump your creatures and give them lifelink.

Indulgent Aristocrat - 1 drop lifelinker to get you started.

Gisela, the Broken Blade - 4/3 flying, first strike, lifelink.
