Contaminated Ground Discussion

Kjartan on Unseen and Annoying

(Sorry I posted trice, Tappedout kept telling my comment hadn't been posted so I tried a couple time over.)

Anyways, I kinda feel your deck is trying to do many conflicting things at once.

You both have cards that try to kill with life loss, and with poison.

If you are on your way to infect your opponent, that Sinister Possession is kinda going to be a dead card, and if you have your opponent at a low life total, Phyresis is not going to be the card you want to see.

You also have this sub theme of land locking, but you don't have that much card draw. Neither do you have too many pieces to support that strategy. You can justify running Spreading Seas in most slow decks, because it cantrips, but if you don't draw multiple Contaminated Grounds, that card isn't going to do much either. And that's assuming your opponent doesn't just run black themselves.

A few words of advice:

Don't use Relic Putrescence if every other card in your deck uses life loss

You probably want to fit in the Contaminated Ground in main

And finally, you want some sort of wincon that is fully under your control, because as of now, you lose to any deck with an inevitable wincon.

Hyperalgialysis on Gideon and his friends

Gideon of the Trials is a pretty cheap walker and might have some value. Good sideboard cards are Kor Firewalker against burn and Knight of Infamy for the orzhov mirror. Rain of Tears Pooling Venom and Contaminated Ground would be very funny with Small Pox provided you force them to sac lands first. Since budget doesnt seem to be much of an issue Vindicate can really cause headaches for your opponent since it never really becomes a dead card. One last card I am a big fan of in here would have to be Dictate of Erebos for decks that could match your creature production.

This deck could work very well with Bloodchief Ascension

Also for tron hate in SB Fulminator Mage is far better than Contaminated Ground but hey the ground put counters on bloodchief

Contaminated Ground and Pooling Venom will help. Sulfuric Vortex Bump in the Night and burn spells will speed up the clock

I'm not sure I like the Spirit/Arcane synergy here. Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse cost 6, and I feel it may be too slow (I may be wrong). Without this synergy, you could use cards like Duress, Mind Rot, Mindstab or Ravenous Rats, instead of Sink into Takenuma and other arcane taht I feel are too.. unneficient. Also, you can use Doom Blade as removal, but I would probably look for -2/-2 or low cost removal, cause you mainly need them in very early game.

As noble Nezumi Shortfang could be an interresting option.

Oh, and if you want to be evil, you can play Rancid Earth and side board Contaminated Ground. I always feel that's so not fair to screw lands XD

TheVectornaut on Ah, Curses!

kbrhnd, I still haven't gotten around to purchasing this deck yet, so I am unsure of how well it will work where I play. One thing I can say is that my goal is to only utilize permanents in this deck to keep it in line with my other enchantment list. So while Open the Armory is out, Heliod's Pilgrim is certainly something I'll test. It might be a way to grab Contaminated Ground or some other utility options that find their way to the sideboard. I do also want to stick with the bestow package though, and they can't be tutored with a Pilgrim. Swapping out Bitterheart Witch now is a possibility too. It's hard to say whether it's preferable to spend 8 mana over two turns or 5 mana over a variable number of turns to get Curse of Misfortunes. In general, though, a witch being too expensive will probably mean that the curses are also too expensive. You can only be lucky enough to have Hero of Iroas some of the time. Luckily, my meta does tend to be on the slower side.

Mana looks good, SB could use some work.

Maybe...

Illness in the Ranks or Virulent Plague for tokens

Memoricide or Torpor Orb for combo?

Grafdigger's Cage for COCO decks

Sudden Spoiling for Bogles & Zoo

Contaminated Ground for Eldrazi, Merfolk, & Tron.

Pithing Needle for planeswalkers and fetches

Demon's Horn for Burn & Mirrors

Ensnaring Bridge for all creature decks
