Consume Spirit Discussion

Drakengard_Sol on Pauper Mono Black Control Tron

18 hours ago

i'd personally take out unknown shores (since youre mono B you dont need filtering its better to have the extra mana for your drain) also you're not going to need as many drains if you have more card advantage so i'd personally stick with a set of drain life plus other draw spells are net gain or net neutral + a blocker whereas stars are net neutral, i'd personally run this deck much differently given the chance just because tron is a little clunky so i'll give you a list of edits id run in my own variant and you can decide whether or not you like them (either way i enjoy your deck idea enough to spend this much time on talking about edits)

so:

OUT

-3 Consume Spirit

-2 Unknown Shores

-4 Chromatic Sphere

-2 Perilous Shadow

-3 Tragic Slip

-4 Dash Hopes

-2 Distress

-3 Chromatic Star

IN

+1 Drain Life

+3 Swamp

+1 Initiates of the Ebon Hand

+2 Gray Merchant of Asphodel

+4 Prophetic Prism

+4 Darkness

+4 Dusk Legion Zealot

+4 Read the Bones

i feel that having things in playsets and using fogs to buy for time is better vs a card like dash hopes which usually requires that you're online with the engine to start with filtering, that and i believe the persistent filtering via Prophetic Prism is a better way to ensure you're casting spells on schedule, on top of that Gary keeps you afloat and acts as a good blocker vs Burn vs the other fella who gains no life

If I may offer some suggestions, I don't think storm is the best route for these colors b/c you don't have cantrips or high tide or any of the good shit that makes storm work well in, let's say, grixis. My I would suggest adjusting the deck to incorporate more of the following:

Phyrexian Altar (and to a lesser extent Ashnod's Altar)+Reveillark/Karmic Guide loop generates infinite colorless mana and ETBs. We can get there faster with Buried Alive/Reanimate +our loop and Wall of Omens (probably the only way to competitively do this.) Using Wall of Omens we can draw through our library. Using Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat and our loop we kill our opponents. With infinite mana from the Phyrexian Altar we can cast Torment of Hailfire and kill everyone. You can Sickening Dreams. You can cast Consume Spirit to drain one player to death then Bond of Agony to kill table or Debt to the Deathless (or any other b/w kill spells).

So at a minimum to set this combo off you need 4 which provides you infinite colorless and our entire library with which we can cast Phyrexian Altar, Gemstone Array, or Mycosynth Lattice to turn our infinite colorless into infinite colored mana. Now we win. Having 3 targets for our infinite mana means our opponents better have stopped the combo back when we were reanimating, cause holding up enough counters to stop 3 spells ain't easy. Since black has so many ways to reanimate, this isn't a problem either, throw in Necromancy, Exhume, and Victimize and we have plenty of options open to us.

What do we do if our altars get countered? We have a few options: Buried Ruin, Argivian Find, Mine Excavation, Ritual of Restoration, and maybe some others allow us to get it back and try again.

(Another option that just occurred to me is to have Disciple of the Vault out, buried alive our loop + an artifact creature (preferably one that provides value), won't need the altars, so this costs 1-2 mana less, but requires more and doesn't give you the option of your library+infinite mana).

Things I would highly suggest adding: Street Wraith, Viscera Seer, Phyrexian Arena, Dark Deal, Path to Exile and the other cards I've mentioned

I would take out the Serra Ascendent, Candelabra, Land Tax, Aetherflux, Paradox Engine, Human Frailty and anything else that doesn't help us get there

I would be very interested in what you think of these changes, I will probably put up a build of my own when I get a chance

(I was brought here after being asked to for a competitive build for Orzhov, found your comment on the Lab Maniacs CEDH list. I think this is a good start, but I think it can be improved.)

Sorry friend, but Oona, Queen of the Fae is not legal in this build, as she has blue in her colour identity. If you're looking for another X-cost finisher you could run Consume Spirit in her place.

This list looks fantastic if you somehow mashed up 93/94 and Pauper into a format XD

I don't know if you're looking for suggestions or just appreciating an older list, but there's some cards that have strictly better conversions. Looming Shade is strictly better than Frozen Shade, and Consume Spirit is strictly better than Drain Life.

Is so much card draw really necessary? I get that you want to eat through your deck as quickly as possible, but you main want to main some removal, or add more creatures/rituals.

It's also worth noting that Consume Spirit is pauper-legal and strictly better than Drain Life.

Thanks I really appreciate that =D

I was just looking through commons and after finding Consume Spirit and Drain Life were both printed at common I tried to think of ways I could make a ton of black mana; finding the Initiate's and knowing about Tron being legal in pauper just made it all click haha.

Tardigrade_Cain Thanks for the upvote! You are correct there is no well-defined win-con for this build. So far most games end with opponent scooping before they get to 0. I added the Organ Grinder to hopefully get to 0 a little faster, although it might not be reliable. Do you have any suggestions? Would cards like Drain Life or Consume Spirit be worthy of a playtest(prob not though since only on X)? Death Watch? But I might have to have more targeted removal. Tyrant's Choice? That might be an easy lose 4 life...could be a finisher. Dash Hopes?
