Chimney Imp Discussion

Vasseer on [Primer] Nightmare by Design

First I'd like to say that this is almost certainly one of the best Chainer decks I've seen (though most chainer decks are not very good). Buut... (also, I did read the description for each card before commenting)

Nether Traitor seems quite bad. In general the card is bad, it's body is totally irrelevant and Reassembling Skeleton is basically always better if you're just sacrificing it. There are a few decks that can justify both but you would need a lot more to make it work.

Dictate of Erebos seems fantastic here, pact is great, dictate is often > pact

Mindcrank wtf, maybe I'm missing something but I absolutely cannot figure out why you would want to play this card, it actually just helps your opponents and I can't see any combo with it. I guess it gives you more stuff to chainer, but I would honestly rather play Chimney Imp than this card (Actually Chittering Rats might not be bad). (If you cast exsanguinate for 20 and still need mindcrank to win, you need to rethink your deck)

Library of Leng again wtf, this card has two effects that have both been printed on lands (Reliquary Tower and Nephalia Academy) and don't even seem like effects this deck wants. Why is this here? (Note that with necro you can just discard your creatures and reanimate them with chainer in response to the exile trigger to keep them so it's not even insane there)

Dark Depths I mean if you're already playing stage and map... Hardcasting Marit Lage is a real thing too.

Despise is usually worse than Duress I can see an argument for it over that, but it over Thoughtseize, Mind Twist, or Hymn to Tourach seems strictly incorrect.

Night's Whisper tends to be a bit better than SiB as it can't be misdirected which in my experience comes up more than the life loss.

Sensei's Divining Top given that you already play fetches and with all this tutoring, top seems very good.

Darkness - A black fog existing does not mean you should be playing it, going down a card to gain a bit of life is not a good trade. Hence why mono green decks don't play fog.

Rune-Scarred Demon I guess I could understand not playing this for the same reason as Sheoldred, but Sheoldred is significantly worse than this card..

If you're playing Contamination you are clearly open to no fun allowed options - Infernal Darkness is basically contamination but for the first 5 turns of it being in play the overall cost is lower than maintaining it with chainer activations.

Skullclamp - You're playing a sacrifice deck, but are not playing the best sacrifice deck card ever printed, just blanked or intentional?

This deck is missing the absurdly broken Chainer card that is Laquatus's Champion. Now this card may seem garbo at a glance but it's true power surfaces when you have an altar in play, he becomes a 1 card + lots of mana combo to kill people. Step 1) Chainer him into play. Step 2) Resolve the life loss trigger. Step 3) Sac him, put the life gain trigger on the stack. Step 4) Respond to the trigger by going back to step 1, repeat until the chosen player is dead. It gets even better when you have Exquisite Blood in play and you actually get to not die while doing it! (This combo may be awful, 100% worth testing though, also chainer make Laquatus's Champion so 10/10 flavor)

Hi! I'll leave some ideas to discuss:

-Deck colors in the deckcycle list (I don't see nothing but the names, at least)
-A notification indicator, showing how many, or what type of notifications you have pending.
-A button that links to the TappedOut main page or profile.
-Possibility to arrange decks in a customized order
-A ''...'' button that shows/takes you to the list of a specific deck (in-app)

And going out on a limb here:
-A card search field (for when someone says "Hey! do you know Chimney Imp" and you positively want to look at it). This would be meant for quick reference and to avoid accessing other pages (sometimes slow and/or messy).

Regards, B

Be ready to get foil Chimney Imp, Storm Crow and other such things delivered to you. I'm on board for this, and am definitely willing to mail my commons to you. We can also finally photoshop you getting pelted by shitty commons.
