Cunning Lethemancer Discussion

lilgiantrobot on Erebos, God of Discard

1 week ago

Not Tomer, but I'm watching the stream! In a multiplayer format, focusing on abilities that hit multiple opponents will serve you much better than single shot effects like Bloodhusk Ritualist.

Along with Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread and Necrogen Mists trigger over and over again. Cunning Lethemancer is the creature version.

Earsplitting Rats, Miasmic Mummy, Rotting Rats, & Sibsig Icebreakers are more good ETB creatures. Since you're also running Merchant, a Conjurer's Closet can get you a lot of value. Stronghold Rats is nice consistent discard with damage. With your Commander, all this discard is not a hindrance at all to you.

You may also want to add some cheaper wrath effects like Mutilate or Languish. It wont take long for people to want to gang up on you!

lilgiantrobot on My First EDH - King Macar Discard

3 weeks ago

Syphon Mind effects are better than making one player discard. The Unnerve in your maybe board is almost always going to be better than Despise since you're going against multiple people. Other cheap discard option are Miasmic Mummy, Rotting Rats, Sibsig Icebreakers, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, and Stronghold Rats. Waste Not is a few bucks right now, but is so much value for you.

Yurie sorry it took me so long to reply, had final exams and work. thats a lot of suggestions. Malfegor is definitely on the maybeboard, he seems fucking hilarious. Ogre Battledriver is prob a no go, unearthed creatures already have haste and the 2 extra power doesnt matter much. Waste Not is interesting, id have to test it out, gets the maybeboard. Exhume is probably a no go, because it lets my opponents get something too, but its a super powerful effect so it gets the maybeboard. for Massacre Wurm and Sheoldred, Whispering One, i would love to run them both but im trying to keep this deck under a 150$ budget, so itd be one or the other. Archfiend of Ifnir is a nah, even with all my looting effects i dont feel it does enough on its own unlike the rest of the creatures to warrant a spot. Body Double lets me get any creature out of any gyard, but its very variable on its usefulness, still gets the maybeobard tho. Cunning Lethemancer is a nah, too small to warrant use and the effect is marginal, if i wanted to run an effect like that id run Necrogen Mists. Puppeteer Clique is interesting, and even though i dont get the persist trigger after unearthing it, the etb is ver powerful. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs has the same problem as teysa envoy of ghosts, where theyre just not gonna attack until they have a way to get rid of him. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is a nah bc even tho we have a lot of symmetrical draw spells the chances of actually getting something useful is slim. Fated Return is too expensive to be blunt, even though instant speed reanimation is nice id rather use cheaper spells or just unearth something. Magus of the Wheel is a nice semi repeatable draw, so it gets the maybeboard. Corpse Augur is interesting, id have to playtest it first. Feldon of the Third Path is definitely an interesting card in its own right, and has the potential to be amazing, although the same applies for his potential to be underwhelming. Covenant of Minds is a no go bc giving ur opponents choice sucks. Charmbreaker Devils is a no go bc the randomness tied to its effect could screw me over, and most of my instants and sorceries are good enough as one shots, and even then i have Archaeomancer. Avatar of Woe is a nice repeatable destruction engine, but i dont feel that it fits with the deck. Extract from Darkness has the potential to be super powerful even if my opponents dont have anything in their graveyard because i can get somethin from my own. Overseer of the Damned is a no go, it doesnt do anything when unearthed aside from getting me a 2/2 and killing a dude, and i already have shriekmaw. Infernal Offering gives my opponent choice, and could potentially screw me over hard. Stormsurge Kraken is a nice untargetable beater, but once again it doesnt do enough for me. Skeletal Scrying makes me exile my gyard, so its a no go.

Winterblast on Volrath discard madness

I can only suggest making the discard spells cheaper - high mana cost discard is pretty much useless because at the time when you are able to cast These spells, player's won't have that many cards left anyway. What's also great is some sort of constant discard, as you already have in the form of Oppression and Cunning Lethemancer

I would rather play Chain of Smog, Hymn to Tourach, Thoughtseize, Delirium Skeins, Mind Twist, Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists...to use madness better I can recommend Anvil of Bogardan

I black I also like to play Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage and Phyrexian Arena. You've got to take the risk with your high mana costs though. Doesn't matter much if you have stuff like Sorin Markov or Pox to drastically reduce your opponent's life total as well.

Here are just some suggestions you might like: Key to the City, Cover of Darkness, Necrogen Mists, Dark Deal, Cunning Lethemancer, Avaricious Dragon, Sire Of Insanity, Metallic Mimic, and maybe addMogis, God of Slaughter as the honorary Minotaur god.

Alkadron on Olivia Voldaren & the funky bunch

This looks pretty cool!

I don't have much experience with vampire tribal, but I have a lot of experience playing EDH, and I have two suggestions:

1) cards like Cunning Lethemancer, Rummaging Goblin, and Academy Raider will probably disappoint you. They're decent discard outlets, the problem is that you have to wait a turn before you can use them, and EDH is a wasteland of creature boardwipes and creature removal. I would try to focus more on instants, sorceries, and maybe artifacts that allow you to draw and discard. Anvil of Bogardan is pretty solid. Jalum Tome is cheap. Tormenting Voice might be good.

2) My other suggestion is that your deck is pretty streamlined and has lots of discard outlets; it seems like you're going to inevitably run out of gas. So I'd try to fit in more draw cards. Syphon Mind is pretty outstanding, and appropriately vampiric, as are Ancient Craving and Sign in Blood. Decree of Pain is fantastic.

Darth_Savage on No Lili? No Problem!

Sorry to say that Liliana Vess is probably too slow. Inquisition of Kozilek has just been re-printed so it's price should drop. Necrogen Mists and Cunning Lethemancer can work as replacements for Liliana of the Veil as they don't target the player they work round Leyline of Sanctity which is the last thing rack or burn want to play against.

How often can you reliably trigger delirium for Whispers of Emrakul? One random card for is worse value than running Black Cat or later in the game Blackmail.
