Hey Elladen, how about before getting your panties all in a bunch you check to make sure your answer is right....

MSU is wholeheartedly correct, I assume because he has read the rules as opposed to whatever lack of research you have done. And I would also like to point out that the card at no point says "TARGET"...its says "Enchant creature with power 3 or less". Nonetheless, even if you didn't know the rule off the top of your head, using simple 4th grade reading would tell you that DD is enchanted as long as it has an enchantment on it. So once it is no longer power 3 or less, the enchantment is no longer legally enchanting it (much like how you can have Chained to the Rocks fall off a land if you Contaminated Ground that land).

And for all those people reading this, I have no problem if you want to use this forum to exchange ideas. This is the ideal forum for finding rulings and whatnot, as most of us are educated individuals who have played the game more than twice. But the minute you add a line like "Please be sure and recheck your opinions about the rules before posting." I have a problem, especially when you are so comically wrong. Hence my unpleasant tone. I hate seeing a person who was clearly trying to help a deckbuilder get shot down so voraciously by someone who is not only wrong, but is so rude while being so wrong. So pull that stick out of your butt and read the rulebook.

P.S. it took me 4 seconds to fact check that, (check the bottom where it says "If the enchanted creature's power increases to 4 or greater, Runner's Bane will be put into its owner's graveyard as a state-based action." But that might just be Wizards opinion).

P.P.S I hope your deck works out for you!

Teleshar, thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely be adding more Thoughtseize and Caves of Koilos once I get them. I do like the idea to get rid of Contaminated Ground however, but I don't know about Ultimate Price , so I'll likely replace it with the Tormented Hero s instead. Regarding Spear of Heliod , I love this card, I've been using it for a long time and it does nothing but good, whereas Obelisk of Urd is pretty nice, but it does conflict with Pain Seer . It will be a consideration, however.

I don't know what is Contaminated Ground doing in here. I'd replace it with Ultimate Price . Additionally, I'd delete Hero's Downfall and add more Tormented Hero es to make the mana curve better. Also, replace Duress with Thoughtseize and definitely get rid of Temple of Silence , as it slows your deck down. Caves of Koilos would make it much more consistent.

I have always been very skeptical about Spear of Heliod , as it is quite expensive. If you really need something like that, go for Obelisk of Urd , but I'd just get more Doom Blade s and Ultimate Price s to increase your removal potential.

Think you might have messed up here. 3x Contaminated Ground and 1x Contaminated Ground ?

Do you mean 1x Contaminated Bond perhaps?

Cara, algumas criaturas que voce colocou nao valem a pena na minha opiniao. Por exemplo Drudge Beetle , Korozda Monitor e Terrus Wurm . O motivo e simples...o preco do scavenge deles e muito alto pelo numero de contadores que eles fornecem. Excelentes alternativas sao Deadbridge Goliath e Dreg Mangler . Voce pode ainda colocar esta belezinha daqui se voce estiver a fim de investir um pouco mais no deck Varolz, the Scar-Striped . Voce pode usar o Sewer Shambler e combar o swampwalk dele com Contaminated Ground . Um outro problema que voce tera que contornar...mana. Overgrowth pode te auxiliar na tarefa de gerar bastante mana para pagar os scavenge. Me parece ser bem interessante para voce esta carta: Fate Transfer . Se nao ficou muito claro, com ela voce pode mover counters acumulados para Sewer Shambler (que pode estar imbloqueavel no momento) ou Daggerdrome Imp , o qual te dara vida ate dizer chega. Sem falar que se Corpsejack Menace estiver em jogo, no meu entendimento os seus counter serao dobrados ao usar Fate Transfer !Para sideboad considere Nature's Claim

I have made a few adjustments. let me know what you think:

I am moving Contaminated Ground and Underworld Connections to SB. I am removing 3x swamps and adding 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .With the extra spot I will add 2x Liliana Vess , now that she is coming back in M15. I have removed 2x Pharika's Cure and replaced them with 2x Drainpipe Vermin if more discard options are needed, as well as increasing the chance to the feed Altar's Reap . Price
