Crumbling Ashes Discussion

Darth_Savage on Everlasting Treason

Some thoughts -

  1. Pharika's Chosen is ok, but in theme Oona's Gatewarden or Fume Spitter have more utility.

  2. Kaervek the Merciless, is just too slow for modern, you would be better with Stigma Lasher

  3. Lightning Reaver, is ok, but it needs more setup than Demigod of Revenge, not necessarily for more gain.

  4. Roast, sorcery speed removal isn't great and it doesn't help your game plan without Everlasting Torment, instead Puncture Bolt, Crumbling Ashes or Fate Transfer.

Otherwise I like the deck, it just needs to be a little more focussed.

Ok, I've actually been thinking about Necroskitter for a long time, I think the printing of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons makes the deck possible. So a deck with Necroskitter to be good I think you need to add green for Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Chord of Calling. This allows you to combo Necroskitter with Black Sun's Zenith.

The deck you currently have isn't bad, I think you ment to put in Nest of Scarabs instead of Scarab Feast. I would say Grim Affliction is too slow, Contagion Clasp instead. -1/-1 counters on their own are not super powerful, that is why having other cards that benefit like Necroskitter, Nest of Scarabs, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Another interesting card is Crumbling Ashes, allows for easier control of the board. Corrosive Mentor is also fairly interesting.

I think for this deck to survive long enough to get all it's pieces together you need to play some hand hate: Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Duress.

Spoosky: Thanks for the suggestions!

The Ring of Xathrid is there so that Hapatra gets a +1 counter at the beginning of my upkeep (to counteract any counters she may acquire due to Harbinger of Night etc).

Crumbling Ashes is pretty awesome in testing so far but I definitely understand the issue with "you may".

Deadbridge Chant probably should come out but it's such good, continuous recursion...

Fecundity gives infinite draws with my snakes dying, but I'll consider removing it.

Thanks again!

This looks like a fun casual deck.

I would up the Crumbling Ashes to a 4 of, as it is just too great in a deck like this to leave. Also Necroskitter is a powerhouse in a deck like this, so you might want to run 4.

Sunscorched Desert doesn't do you very much, and 4 isn't enough green sources (or red). with the number of swamps it this deck, Tainted Wood can probably be as good as Bayou. So maybe cut back to 11 swamps, 4 Tainted Wood, 2 Rugged Highlands (better than Shivan Oasis), 4 Desert, and 4 Savage Lands.

CMGraves on Munger - Zombie Tribal Storm

I was looking at Crumbling Ashes as well but there were only so many cards I could find to put -1/-1. I haven't had any real world luck with Faces of the Past but with Zombies always coming in tapped etc, it should work real well.

I've got Arena of the Ancients floating around as well but haven't found a good spot for it
