Creeping Corrosion Discussion

Delta-117 on Golgari Obliterator

2 days ago

Now that I have given this some more thought, here are some additional ideas.

I think this one could be sort of funny, Arena + Phyrexian Obliterator. You could cut a Mortuary Mire. Deadly Allure also even works, although you do t want many of these. Then if you think about it, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes it a swamp, which might mean you could cut the other Mortuary Mire perhaps too for another of one of these lands.

Besides that I think Collective Brutality as a 1-2 of over Raven's Crime might be worth considering. Although I see why you were thinking Raven's Crime based on your explanation.

For your sideboard I have some suggestions too, 1x, Damnation, 1x Creeping Corrosion, and 2x? Fulminator Mage possibly. I also agree on Stephencliffe's suggestion of Maelstrom Pulse. More Abrupt Decay as also suggested sounds good mainboard.

I would cut down your number of Surgical Extractions by either 1-2. Cut the Oblivion Stone maybe, for that Maelstrom Pulse or Damnation. Then consider moving some of that hand disruption to the mainboard possibly?

Honestly I think your deck looks pretty good. I am on the Grim Flayer version personally but Dark Confidant is the next best thing. The only thing I can recommend is try only 2 Abrupt Decays. That card is just isnt the best right now, at both my scg open and a couple IQs I went to recently it was almost the worst card in my deck. Collective Brutality has been fantastic though for me the only bad matchup being bant eldrazi and it can even do things in that match up so maybe switch one for one. Sigarda, Host of Herons is sweet but I dont think it is needed personally especially if you play confidant. I also would only play Creeping Corrosion if you expect lantern and affinity the card is a little narrow and I think you are fine against them already so if you wanna add one of these maybe board cards then drop that too. Also let me know how finks has been for you as I am legitimately curious!

As far as your maybeboard cards. Ok, definitely not another Abrupt Decay as mentioned before.

Anafenza is fine but I dont think its very needed especially if you play kalitas although it is a bit faster than him. You can probably play her if you expect a lot of dredge and death's shadow but other than that shes usually just kind of a dude.

Back to nature is just not necessary imo Stony Silence and removal especially main deck Maelstrom Pulse is good enough.

A second explosives is kind of iffy, I definitely like one and a second one isnt horrible it really depends on what you play against at your tournaments. The card is great against affinity, lantern, blood moon decks, and has some splash damage against jund, abzan, infect, death's shadow etc. So it might just be a personal preference thing its either great or mediocre depending on the match up.

Flaying Tendrils is kind of meh, maybe against dredge but i think Surgical Extraction is better.

Garruk is cool but basically only in the midrange grind mirrors so meh.

Liliana, the Last Hope has been pretty solid for me. She is basically only good in the grindy mirrors but has some good splash damage on the play against delver decks, death's shadow, and living end which you can take that as you will. I have only played with her a little but she did win me a game once so I have been happy with her.

Lingering Souls is the best card in the deck almost every time, if you play a second brutality try out four but without Grim Flayers I could see only playing 3.

Lost Legacy has been pretty good for me specifically against ad nauseum decks, dredge, and Scapeshift so if you play against them try out 1. I will personally be keeping it in for now.

Obstinate Baloth is just not really needed imo only good against abzan and jund.

Porphyry Nodes also doesnt seem that great when you play 3x Fatal Push and 4x Path to Exile.

Renegade Rallier I actually tested out a while back when he first came out and it is broken on turn 3 after they kill your 2 drop but you need a lot of fetches to make it work so you can try it but I dont think you need it.

Seal of Primordium is just not that needed.

Thalia I have never played with, it seems a little slow but you are welcome to try her out.

Thrun is kind of meh its just basically the same thing as baloth.

Wilt-Leaf Liege definitely is not needed as it doesnt really fit the deck.

Anyway abzan is my main deck in modern and I would love to talk about it any time so if you have any other questions or statements let me know!

I was going back and forth about Creeping Corrosion... it definitely blows out Affinity, Lantern, and Tezzerator. Back to Nature is something I totally forgot about, thanks!

I really dig Flaying Tendrils, and again, forgot it existed lol. Thanks gents!

You went 0-4 because that list isn't great as-is and it was your first outing. Elves is hardly gonna kill every deck in Modern but it really isn't an awful deck, and it's probably amongst the top 20 or so Modern builds (though in the lower part of that 20, tbh) It can beat Infect (ahem, Melira, Sylvok Outcast), it can beat Skred, it can beat a lot of decks, especially if you splash black for good removal. But you can also stay mono-green and do okay without investing a ton more.

And I think your deck can get way better without tons of super-expensive stuff, or you might find a way to make some decent trades for stuff you want. Though Boza is right that there's no way around buying 4X CoCo.

On the manabase - for 2-color, you can live without fetchlands. Blooming Marsh and Overgrown Tomb are the best options, but you can also see if you can grab Woodland Cemetery, Llanowar Wastes, and who knows- you might grab a cheap Gilt-Leaf Palace or two.

Shaman of the Pack and Lead the Stampede are also obviously do-able. Fatal Push isn't too much, and you might have some playable stuff lke Doom Blade sitting around.

Abrupt Decay, again, would absolutely be the best removal option. But you can also go with Beast Within for a lot of problems, and Elves isn't a deck that should worry too much about a free 3/3.

For other SB stuff, you might think about a couple Chord of Calling and using a creatures toolbox approach, which often works better than spells with a CoCo deck anyway. There's Brain Maggot, Reclamation Sage, Scavenging Ooze, and Kitchen Finks. You could go dig up some weird,cheap, unexpected SB options like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Eyes of the Wisent, Creeping Corrosion, Obstinate Baloth, and Thragtusk if you can't afford the usual stuff (like Cavern of Souls).

And look, you won't go 4-0, certainly not until you learn the deck and get good at playing it. But beating a $1000-plus deck with a budget-ish build that isn't a straight-up netdeck is the most fun thing you can do in MTG.

Good luck in any case.

Things I would be willing to trade for (not in any order): Serra's Sanctum, Mana Vault, Birds of Paradise, Concordant Crossroads, City of Solitude, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Dream Halls, The Great Aurora, Exhume, Creeping Corrosion, Basalt Monolith, and Whip of Erebos.

cards I have from your want list: Ajani Vengeant, Unwinding Clock, and I might trade some shocks/ktk fetches (but prob not many if any as I am trying to build a deck of each color combination).

was there anything else you were interested in besides those in your binder and the Japanese atraxa deck?

Cards like Qasali Pridemage, Stony Silence, and Creeping Corrosion are great against Lantern Control and Affinity.

Cards like Ghost Quarter and Leonin Arbiter are good against decks like Jund and Infect so you can deal with cards like Raging Ravine and Inkmoth Nexus without having to use Path to Exile.

You can also use cards like Blessed Alliance to get around infect's quick kills, or just use Sunlance as an extra removal spell.

Against tron, Aven Mindcensor and Gaddock Teeg work well at disrupting an opponent's game plan.

Against abzan company cards like Rest in Peace can be steller at disrupting their combo (also works against dredge too).

Cards like Kitchen Finks and Rest for the Weary are great against burn.

Merfolk is a tougher matchup for this deck since it's a mono colored deck.
