Consume the Meek Discussion
2 weeks ago
Far out Mandalorian! Thank you so much! This is a huge help, I was struggling but with this i should be able to get this deck flowing magnificently. I was kind of just expecting a sentence or two of advice and a few card recommendations but you really put in to help me get this deck running. Cheers!
Some of the cards you mentioned I already have (such as Mutilate, Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Duress, and Nightmares pouring out of my ears) but I dis-included them here just because I was using this list to decide what cards to buy.
Some others like Liliana's Caress, Hymn to Tourach, and Shrieking Affliction (I do have one of these but wanted more), I kept out either because the seller didn't have them or I left out to cut costs a bit. (Liliana's Caress is $8 ea! Why I went for Raiders' Wake instead, though it's CMC is higher)
And then there's those cards like Zombie Infestation, The Rack, Waste Not (far out that card is good) and Faith of the Devoted that I somehow never found when researching discard cards and now I feel I must hunt down these cards right away.
I also now totally see what you mean with Brain in a Jar, Tempt with Immortality, and Blood Tribute. Especially Tempt with Immortality I never even realised I was giving their discards back facepalm. Though I've already ordered those cards they'll fit fine in other decks I own so no issue being rid of them.
I was also wondering what's your opinion on adding some cards I already own such as Consume the Meek, Pestilence Demon (Mono-black can work wonders with him, tho it can also obviously be a detriment), Liliana's Reaver, Jar of Eyeballs, Wight of Precinct Six, and Crypt Incursion. Although Crypt Incursion could result in lofty amount of life, it also kind of ruins the synergy of cards like Guiltfeeder but in the other hand denies possibilities of opponent's getting their cards back and could even make Tempt with Immortality more viable.
Another thing I was worried about was that besides Creeping Dread I don't have much consistent opponent discard sources. I did originally consider Cao Cao, Lord of Wei but my seller didn't have it and I do prefer to avoid spending $5 on one card (there are exceptions of course). Other than that I just thought of adding more discard spells like more Mind Shatters, and now, adding a few Unnerves. I do own heaps of Mind Rots but they down seem very CMC efficient. Also adding some of these cards (which I plan to do) will return my issue of deck size. What do you think I could replace? What's worth keeping? What doesn't contribute enough to warrant keeping?
Sorry I feel like I almost just wrote an essay question for you to answer, but I feel as though you probably enjoy this stuff ;P
Again, thanks soo much for your assistance, this is the first deck I've made that I'm trying to make perfect so I really appreciate the help in getting it there. Cheers!!

Modern is known for being a very fast format. Playing cards that cost upwards of 5 mana means that you'll probably never be able to cast them in a competitive environment. This is a good deck idea, but playing cards like Butcher of Malakir, It That Betrays, and Consume the Meek cause your deck to not be as effective as it could be. Though a bit pricey, because you are sacrificing so many things, Fatal Push will work as excellent removal. Even an un-revolted fatal push can kill quite a few popular modern cards (i.e Tarmogoyf, Dark Confidant, Baral, Chief of Compliance, etc.). In terms of your lands, I would suggest things like Hissing Quagmire, Llanowar Wastes, and Woodland Cemetery. If you are able to spend more money on your lands, I would suggest Overgrown Tomb. This deck has potential and I am excited to see where you take it.

lilgiantrobot Thanks for the suggestions!
I hadn't realized Consume the Meek had gotten so low! I don't mind barter/innocent blood, but I'd rather run targeted removal like Murder or Tragic Slip. However, you got me thinking about Drown in Sorrow which might get cycled in.
I don't really see Rise from the Tides being win-con, even if I replaced all the auras with instants/sorcies, since EDH always feels so mass-removal heavy. Same with the pike That's down to taste though.
A lot of the aura choices are based around doubling-up on saving Wydwen, to make her really annoying to remove(because either they pop one of the totems, or something like Shade's Form, or you just dump the mana and bounce her to hand.)-and remember, those 'return to play' enchantments can be layered on to opponents creatures, then killed with Tragic Slip or Extinguish All Hope to bring them back under the player's control.
Artful Dodge is amazing and I can't believe I forgot it though, so it's getting put in for Vampiric Link. Dropping Dismiss into Dream for Drown in Sorrow since I realized I don't have too much that targets anyway(it's from when I was fooling around with the build to decide what to do).

I'm not sure I like the amount of auras included. They work counter to Wydwen's biggest strength, her return to hand ability. Cards like Open Into Wonder, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Taigam’s Strike, & Shadow Rift don't have the lasting impact, but can also fuel the addition wincon of Rise from the Tides or Runechanter's Pike.
Consume the Meek is another good, cheap sweeper, and an instant. Its listed at nearly .$50 here but I'm seeing a lot of $.20 copies on tcgplayer. Barter in Blood/Innocent Blood doesn't hurt the player either, b/c there's so few creatures and Wydwen can save herself.

I'm not sure how useful those pinpoint discard spells will be late game. Once the opponent's hand is empty, most of your cards are dead. Some discard cards like Brain Pry can replace themselves once the opponent has an empty hand. Or, something like Call the Bloodline or Pack Rat can make your discard spells do something else once the opponent is empty handed.
Since you're using Liliana's Caress and Abyssal Nocturnus, you might consider Dark Deal to deliver some damage, while still leaving them with cards in hand for a followup Mind Sludge. Don't forget to Dream Salvage or Geth's Grimoire if you do.
Replace your Mind Rot with Stupor, if you can. I'd play Megrim over Liliana's caress, since Megrim can damage opponents' planeswalkers if needed, but that's just personal preference. For removal, I'm a big fan of Devour in Shadow.
Anyway...for your sideboard, Relic of Progenitus or the cheaper Scrabbling Claws to stop those graveyard hijinks. Either Pithing Needle or the cheaper Damping Matrix can stop some activated abilities. I'd put in some Poor Man's Damnation Barter in Blood, Languish or Consume the Meek to stop critter strategies. To break combos, a card like Memoricide or Cranial Extraction.
