Chainer's Edict Discussion

Whiskerbro on I Get By

I'm curious exactly what you like with black here. Gets you a mediocre exalted effect and a mediocre unblockable dude, but I think blue is just a much better fit, as it gets you more and better unblockable guys, as well as better exalted, and can let you dig for more creatures.

Now on to replacements for Mind Rot and Doom Blade. And I forgot to mention, Duress is good, but you probably don't want to be running more than one or two in the mainboard, as it can be a completely dead card in certain matchups. Snuff Out is a potential option that can be cheated out for a big life swing. I also like Chainer's Edict because it's very good against Bogles decks, but it does struggle against stuff like aristocrats or stompy, really anything that has Young Wolf. Hideous End, Grasp of Darkness, or Victim of Night are all options here as well.

Past removal, there are some utility cards that could be good here. Unearth is great cause everything's low CMC. Night's Whisper or Read the Bones can stop you from running out of steam lategame. Maybe you could just run some solid creatures as well, Chittering Rats provides some sweet disruption and has a fine body. I'd look to cut your Guardians of Akrasa as well, as the card is pretty bad. I think you'd be better off with another solid creature rather than running one just because it says exalted on it.

Hi there! What do you think about Mizzium Skin? If your concern is preserving Nettle Drone or Mirran Spy it works just fine and for a single mana. You can also side something against Chainer's Edict.

Glad i could help.
For spot removal things like Silence the Believers, Cruel Edict, Chainer's Edict are very good. For board wipes i suggest Crux of Fate, Toxic Deluge and Languish.
You can also run some counterspells to help avoid something bad.

illumfolly Awesome brosef, glad you enjoy the build! Made a few adjustments. I just wanted Chainer's Edict for the absolute flavor.

Hell's Caretaker didn't work quite how I wanted, but Chainer's Edict? Now we're taking.

If the commons/uncommons are packed with Lightning Bolts, Swords to Plowshares, Ponders, Inquisition of Kozilek, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Counterspell, and other fun stuff I'd still get few even if the mythics were all storm crows and grizzly bears.

Sure, it's fun to open a $10 pack with 14 chaff and one $20 card, but I'd much rather open a $10 pack with 15 $1 cards.

Plus, life becomes a lot easier if Chainer's Edict and Battle Screech finally get paper printings at common.

Hi ektoe253,

Thanks for the constructive comment! I haven't played much the deck after constructing it, so it definitely needs refinement. Let me give you mostly the thoughts besides my choices:

  • Butcher Ghoul and Sultai Emissary are my sacrifice fodder. To a lesser extent that's true for Perilous Myr and Undying Evil too. So I can't agree with all your suggestions for replacements at the same time. I consider the Mortician Beetle to be the weakest card as it is very time sensitive.
  • Diabolic Edict vs other removal - I guess you have a point here. Murder, Bone Splinters or Tragic Slip should be the best as they are much more reliable ...
  • My thought of not including Chainer's Edict was that the deck is mostly aggro and I am never reaching the flashback mana. Actually this is the other reason to be running mono black over splash for other colors - to be more aggressive.

Could you give me a link to this podcast - it sounds interesting!
