Crumbling Ashes Discussion

Vyruletic on Death by wither scarabs! Suggestions?

1 day ago

So I have a mono black wither deck ive been working on. Its mostly for funsies, but I want to use it for Modern FNM without get turn 4'd with moderate success. Im having some issues deciding on what to keep/upgrade, switch from side to main, or generally trim out.

The basic core premise to throw neg counters on everything, then spreas the disease with Blowfly Infestation and proliferate, and kill big opponent creatures then control them with Crumbling Ashes and Necroskitter.

Win conditions are using Nest of Scarabs with any combination of -1/-1 generation to wipe the board then swarm.

Failing that, big creature control.

Alternatively using Tree of Perdition with -1/-1 counters.

And the weakest backup, Tormented Soul + Quietus Spike chip to death. Thanks in advance!

I have been working on Hapatra for a long time. My favorite deck I've built with her is here Another Haptra deck. Hopefully it can help in any way that my comments do not. I personally feel the deck is lacking in the - counters (Yes, I'm aware they are -1/-1, but - just saves a lot of time) synergy. I do like the Blowfly Infestation, Incremental Blight,and some of the other cards cards that benefit through -1 counters. Have you considered Crumbling Ashes? Golgari Cluestone seems to slow. If anything, I'd recommend Golgari Keyrune. Another suggestion I have is going somewhat snake tribal due to hapatra making Deathtouch SNAKE tokens tokens. Just a suggestion. Hope some of it helps. One last thing, this is a token deck; why no Craterhoof Behemoth?

Woiteck Thanks for the suggestions. I will be adding them both. I also saw some other cards on your list that I might incorporate as well.

For now I am going to keep Liliana. She has play tested well especially when Crumbling Ashes is out. Her mana cost is higher than I would like, but so far mana hasn't been a problem.

There are a few interesting cards among those decks, I really like Crumbling Ashes. Kulrath Knight is pretty difficult. In my casual group, there are a lot of decks with no active removal, but I think against most serious decks, I would take him out.

I run a similar build. I found that Crumbling Ashes did some work.

Just noticed you had 2x Crumbling Ashes. That frees up an extra spot.

I agree with the above comments about your mana. 38 lands is what I strive for followed by 8 ramp cards. I also like running Golgari Cluestone and Golgari Keyrune. Also Dark Ritual helps ramp into black.

GiantMonsterGames on Mono-Black Infect Deck

The deck looks interesting. Have never seen a mono-black infect deck. That being said I think the needs some more Infect cards to make it work on that front. Most infect decks aim to ambush the opponent into loosing.

You may want to look at what cards you need to play x4 of and push them up. Right now you have a lot of x2 and x3 meaning the deck will not be as constant.

Cards I do not like in the build:

Crumbling Ashes Dose not do enough, you will find it to be too slow.

Virulent Wound This card needs to kill the creature the turn you play it in order to give the player a poison token. WAY to inconstant.

Shimian Specter Looks out of plays. I know you are using it to control your opponent but it is slow and I think you can replace it with better Infect or better hand removal cards.

Hope this quick review helps.
