Crovax the Cursed Discussion

Spell_Slam on "Toss A Coin"

Great idea!

Liliana definitely gives me some pretty big Yennefer vibes. Maybe a few copies of her would be good? Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Liliana of the Veil could work.

The Gitrog Monster could work well as the Ofiri prince in the sewers of Oxenfurt from the HoS DLC.

Necrophages are pretty easy to find in Black. I'm thinking of the new art on Carrion Feeder would work well, so would Phyrexian Ghoul. Wraiths of all kind are also pretty easy to find. Frozen Shade from 5th Edition, Chilling Shade, Liliana's Shade and Nightwing Shade all seem like good options.

Higher Vampires are also pretty easy, you can take your pick from tons of options. Maybe you could put in some legendary vampires that could represent Detlaff and Regis? Maybe Baron Sengir and Crovax the Cursed? Shauku, Endbringer looks like an Alp or Bruxa.

You need a horse and a boat! Sleek Schooner looks about right. There are a surprising amount of horses in Black and Green, the best of which are Nightmare, Timbermare and Vine Mare. Roach looks a bit more like Dusk Charger (minus the red eyes).

The Wild Hunt and the White Frost could be represented by a Snow subtheme. A handful of snow basics, Boreal Druid and Rimebound Dead could be a decent start, along with a few more things like Dead of Winter.

I'll give this some more thought later. Hopefully this gave you some ideas you like!

Ah two good examples as counterpoints, but allow me to rebut. Frilled Mystic is a Simic guild member/creature. Several Simic cards have multiple species to emphasize the guild’s focus on hybridization. E.g. Vorel of the Hull Clade . Mirri is a Planar Chaos’d Crovax the Cursed . That card comes from a time before the great subtype update, but similar cards, Irini Sengir being most notable, have Vampire X subtypes. This strikes me more as an exception to the rule for throwback/nostalgia/Planar Chaos “What-could’ve-been” reasons than anything else.

A good trick for getting more punch out of Alesha is to run guys who have more power than their printed stats might indicate. For instance, Arcbound Overseer has 0 power when he's in the graveyard, but as soon as you return him, he's attacking for 6! Other examples include Clockwork Dragon, Drakestown Forgotten, Nighthowler, Sewer Nemesis, Thought Gorger, Ignition Team, Crovax the Cursed and Workhorse. Your opponents will be surprised how often "2 or less" won't feel like it!

Other cards that fit your general strategy include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and Unearth, which can return a lot of the same cards as Alesha. You might also want more removal, such as Bone Shredder, Ravenous Baboons and Garza's Assassin. Good luck!

Thanks for the comments.

@joshuaizac: Glad someone caught the reference. It is so blatantly obvious but no one has mentioned it so far haha. I'ma huge fan of Crovax the Cursed and I'm pretty happy with being able to drop him as 8/8 flyer on turn 4-5.

@seshiro_of_the_orochi: Constrictor is nice but I I have a similar effect in Hardened Scales which is harder to remove. Good suggestions though.

Great deck!

Just a lot of random suggestions. Don't use most of them.Consider Abbot of Keral Keep, which might help with casting more cards.Acidic Slime/Bane of Progress/Big Game Hunter//Duplicant for removal. Agent of Erebos for dealing with graveyard stuffs. Is that even an EDH thing? Anarchist/Archaeomancer if you like your instants and sorceries. Aspiring Aeronaut/Attended Knight/Beetleback Chief b/c they make tokens. Baleful Strix is just a really good card. Clockwork Beetle: 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1. Cloud of Faeries can help: You can get it into your graveyard while drawing cards, then play it to add mana. Crovax the Cursed//Dracoplasm can get things in your graveyard, especially things that make tokens that you can get again. Deceiver Exarch might be decent. Elgaud Shieldmate for protection; you can give anything you control hexproof. Elvish Pioneer might be good ramp. Epochrasite is also a pretty good card. Evangel of Heliod b/c you have a lot of white mana symbols.
