Castigate Discussion

Lovec on Orzhov Drain

I really like idea of this deck. But need little bit improve. :)

The Deck is missing some kind of "cheep" creature kill cards. I mean something like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile. Remove Souls of the Faultless i like this card, but it is not so much usefull as looks. I tryed play it a lot of time and I must say no. Same with Hissing Miasma 1 life nobody cant stop from the attacking. You can try Tidehollow Sculler for controling player hand and for example Kambal, Consul of Allocation for a different kind of life drain. :) Maybe Phyrexian Arena will be a usefull card for you with your life gain.

Orzhov Basilica is very slow land, maximum number in deck is 1. :)

In the deck you can try a lot of different card for example:Gerrard's Verdict controling opponents hand and life gain.Castigate controliing opponents hand.Stillmoon Cavalier Nice defender.Night's Whisper more card draws.Beckon Apparition utility card BW instant for 1 mana, and removing ugly card from graveyard and you gain instantly flying blocker. Very good card with Deathbringer Liege

It's a fun idea to play with, but wishes should generally be played only to enhance a preexisting deck. For example, Project X decks (decks built around the Crypt Champion + Saffi Eriksdotter combo) use them as an extra Saffi Eriksdotter or Teysa, Orzhov Scion, along with other helpful cards like Castigate, Dryad Militant and Abrupt Decay. I don't mean to discourage any spark of creativity in the Magic community, but just know that most people don't build decks around Glittering Wish for a reason.

That said, one idea you could incorporate is a hatebear subtheme combined with Eldrich Evolution, allowing you to pull out the perfect bear for the job. They wouldn't take up much space, since you'd only need 1 or 2 of each bear.

I'm interested in how this deck turns out! It's a really fun idea to play with.

Yea Castigate is good, also Go for the Throat but the awful thing alll among this is the money. Ordering things from dolars and transfering them into my country value is almost doubleing the price and thats the shitiest part of all. Thats why im lookinf for some cheap and budget things. Thanks for suggestions !

Bitterblossom is GOOD.

But it's price indicates it's GREAT. And it's not.


4x of each

Lingering Souls

Spectral Procession

Intangible Virtue

Targeted discard spells

If you have Thoughtseize

And/or Inquisition of Kozilek

Play em. 4-6 total.

If not, Duress at 2x is OK

Castigate exiles for 2.

Tidehollow Sculler Sucks. Don't play it.

Add your lands, maybe some cheap black removal.

Doom Blade

Go for the Throat

Then fill in the blanks.


Elspeth Sun's Champion is really best in U/W or Esper Control.

But ahhh...

$$$$$$$$$$$$

I'd think that Castigate would be better over Distress just for the exile

The strength in the tokens strategy doesn't lay purely in the ability to generate a lot of virtual card advantage but rather in grinding opponents out of the game.

I would value Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek over the Sisters by a fairly large margin, replace Castigate, and I'd run at least 6 of this effect, if not 7.There's no reason you shouldn't be running Fatal Push, between Push and Path to Exile again 6 or 7 of this effect is good. Cut Harsh Sustenance I've never seen it and not wished it was something else. Phyrexian Arena is also so-so.

Hero of Bladehold is fantastic in the side but I'm unconvinced with the sisters in there as they mean that your opponent may not board out all of their spot removal, I've often brought Hero out in game 2 to completely steal the game and they have no way of dealing with her as they've boarded out all their spot removal.

Consider Concealed Courtyard It's probably the single best land this deck can run as it's pretty greedy as far as colour requirement on different parts of the curve goes.

Lastly you can always shave a Bitterblossom if need be, it seems counter-intuitive but having 2 is usually not very good.

Sorin is fantastic in this deck, Anguished Unmaking has often saved an otherwise difficult situation. Secure the Wastes can steal games pretty hard, and Zealous Persecution has a lot of versatility, it often acts as a board wipe if not stealing the game.

As far as the sisters go, in practice this deck is very good at utilising life totals as a resource, it doesn't always need the sisters help though but personal preference

Hey there, I would just run 4 Castigate if you are wanting to use the 2 mana discard.

In the kindest terms, Transgress the Mind sucks.

Terashi's Grasp is also close to unplayable. Disenchant exists and it's instant.

They are good but not main deck, 2 in the sideboard is great though.

Mortify is not great. Anguished Unmaking Exists.

Read the Bones is not great Night's Whisper exists.

Child of Night - There are so many 2 mana cards in modern that are better.

Look to the Knights for budget stuff Knight of Meadowgrain or

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Consul's Lieutenant - Double white for no benefit. Renown doesn't really work in modern.

The same 2 cards I listed above are strictly 200% better. I think they are both cheap $$.

OR


Go Aristocrats.

Basic/Generic/Budget(ish) Build could like this

4x Concealed Courtyard

4x Isolated Chapel

8x Swamp

4x Plains

plus 2-4 other lands

4x Blood Artist

4x Zulaport Cutthroat

4x Bloodsoaked Champion / Viscera Seer

4x Lingering Souls

4x Cartel Aristocrat

2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

2x Anguished Unmaking

3x Path to Exile / Fatal Push - Depending on budget.

Ummm... some sort of kill em all spells Killing Wave is my favorite.

Rally the Ancestors / Return to the Ranks

Lot of options in black and white.
