Corpse Cur Discussion

Alylio on Looking for cards to help ...

Ye, I somewhat agree. After thinking a little about it, I believe that it's best to drop both Blighted Agent and Plague Myr, replacing them with something like Elvish Visionary and Gatecreeper Vine . The point is not winning on turn 2, but ramping, while also being able to shut my opponent down.

I believe it's better to rely on Viral Drake and Phyrexian Hydra as my "heavy hitters", while leaving a few copies of Phyrexian Swarmlord in if they have removal. Maybe if I pair this together with an Evolutionary Leap and a couple of Corpse Cur 's I'll get somewhere.

Anyway, thanks for posting, it's fun to have other people looking at your deck and thinking along with you.

And maybe Corpse Cur in the sideboard instead of Priests of Norn.

I would cut the 4 cost creatures.

Core Prowler Corpse Cur

I just started building a deck similar without doing a search for it. Here are some of the ideas I came up with:

1) If you are playing multiplayer, Tooth and Nail may be castable, but if you aren't going to pay the entwine don't bother playing it. Otherwise stick with Defense of the Heart. There are lots of different cards you can grab, but my personal favorite pair is Triskelion and Mephidross Vampire. Together it's a permanent creature board wipe that basically clears the way for you to attack with you infect creatures.

2) Throne of Geth works well with old used up artifacts or with Core Prowler and Corpse Cur.

3) Forgotten Ancient is also on-colour and will ramp up your infect dudes as well. He also plays nice with Triskelion who is gross with Glistening Oil on him.

4) Infect isn't just combat damage, but any damage dealt by those creatures, so you can use Tim effects such as Hermetic Study, Psionic Gift, Thornbite Staff, and Viridian Longbow. You can also use these on creatures like Marsh Viper.

5) I second Dauthi Embrace. I remember playing back in Tempest, and shadow creatures were a pain to deal with.

6) I love using Ichor Rats with a Mimic Vat out. Either the player keeps taking hits from it, or they kill it and I imprint it on the Vat and they they are on a faster clock.

7) For evasion in any deck using black I've been using Filth and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Together everything is unblockable, and black is popular right now, so there is a pretty good chance your opponent will be using it.

I really like the Beastmaster Ascension and Defense of the Heart. Nice and efficient.

Current Deck Criticisms/Upgrades

  • Tooth and Nail, Craterhoof Behemoth, and Blightsteel Colossus seem out of place. Tooth and Nail feels like there should be a combo win in here to fetch. I don't know how you play, but I always hold a few creatures in my hand. I try to stay around 2-4 threats on the field at once so I can recover from wrath effects. Craterhoof could be an Overrun essentially, but that's merely a preference I believe.
  • Living Death feels too symmetrical. You don't want them to get their threats back. Sun Titan might do the same job albeit it more slowly.
  • Reanimate feels like not enough punch for the deck for a one-and-done effect. Phyrexian Reclamation is a permanent source of card advantage.
  • Triumph of the Hordes is another card that could be Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede for one more colorless mana. More bang for the buck than +1/+1.
  • Seedborn Muse - You don't have a lot of tap effects or cards with flash. What is this card adding to the deck?
  • Counterspell - Negate and Arcane Denial are easier to cast with your mana base even though the former is slightly limited. The latter provides replaces itself. Both also seem better than the conditionally useful Corrupted Resolve.
  • Crop Rotation - Is this the Inkmoth Nexus-finder? If you need more infect creatures, I would just add more creatures instead of fetching up a land.
  • Slip Through Space - Although not a cantrip, Artful Dodge does the same thing and you can use it twice via flashback.

New Card Suggestions

I would strongly recommend some mana ramp and mana fixing:

Since the point of this deck is infect, might I suggest Corpse Cur instead of Thrummingbirdto get some graveyard interaction and more infect? Corpse Cur would also benefit from Hand of the Praetors.

Also I suggest some equipment that boosts power more than Bone Saw. If you want to be really, really mean, try Trepanation Blade.
