Curse of Misfortunes Discussion

Neotrup on What happens when I gain ...

1 month ago

It's worth noting that some auras, including curses, will reference both "you" (the person who controls the aura) and the enchanted creature/player.

If you gain control of a Curse of Misfortunes attached to you, at the beginning of your upkeep you will have the option to search your library for a new curse to attach to yourself, but you likely won't want to.

If you gain control of a Curiosity, you will get to draw a card whenever the enchanted creature deals damage to one of your opponents, but not if it hits you.

If you gain control of a Firebreathing, you will be the one who get's to pay mana to give the enchanted creature +1/+0, if you so desire.

If you gain control of a Mind Control, you'll also get to take the enchanted creature, as long as there isn't a newer control changing effect (like that of Daring Thief) being applied to it.

You could probably stand to cut 2-4 lands--you have a bit too many as-is. Since you have some card draw, you will be pretty safe with 20 lands.

Since you are running white, you should also be running Path to Exile--easily the best removal spell in the format. This could replace your Fatal Pushes, as well as some of your lands.

For a hypothetical, non-budget version, Jace, the Mind Sculptor would be a great card. If you draw a curse, you can use his 0 ability to put it back into your library, allowing it to be found with Curse of Misfortunes.

Finally, you should probably add some other way to win. Putting all your eggs in one basket is problematic--you never know if your opponent can easily answer your primary battleplan. Delver of Secrets  Flip and Thing in the Ice  Flip would be solid cards, considering the number of instants and sorceries you are running. Delver quickly transforms and provides early, evasive pressure on your opponent. Thing clears their board, clearing the way for you to sweep.

You don't have a Blue mana producing land to cast Curse of Echoes. Its a dead draw in your hand if your only way of playing it is Curse of Misfortunes or Bitterheart Witch. I would recommend removing that Curse and adding one more Bitterheart Witch, or adding some Blue land.

Well since Daxos' tokens are GIGANTIC, Lightmine Field could be pretty awesome. Since this deck seems relatively casual, Overwhelming Splendor may also make the cut. If your opponent is playing mono-red or mono-black or red-black it just destroys their game. If you wanna go even further into spite mode, making it a curse deck with Curse of Misfortunes.

First Curse you should drop on someone is Curse of Misfortunes. That'll grab the rest of your Curses each turn. Also, Sidisi, Undead Vizier tutors a Curse and you can exploit Bitterheart Witch and double down with one in play and one in your hand. Good job on combining Overwhelming Splendor and Curse of Death's Hold. I have a similar deck. Maybe Curse of Exhaustion?

Maybe a Curse of Death's Hold and Overwhelming Splendor with a Curse of Misfortunes to search? It would change the colors and such though, and the combo wouldn't be the same.

I love this deck, but... no Ghostly Prison? No Starfield of Nyx? Let's go full-on enchantress on this bitch. Curse of Misfortunes is monstrous, especially when paired with Overwhelming Splendor. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a beast in enchantments, too. Worth considering is Daxos the Returned but he's not fantastic. Great blocker generator.

Good removal can be Doom Blade, Ultimate Price, Sudden Demise is good vs. blue, Divine Reckoning, Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act, Fumigate. All great with little-to-no creatures. Lightning Helix is also neat.

This one's more optional, but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is good life gain, gives you a few good blockers. And if you're running Exquisite Blood you might as well have Sanguine Bond up your sleeve to go infinite.

Magister of Worth is a gamble, since you'll probably have few cards in the grave. Also, no rocks? That's up to you, I guess. I appreciate the flavor of Triskaidekaphobia but it's really not good.

This deck is awesome, super cool and fun. I love the flavor of it, the functionality, and the fact that group hug comes in black.

TheVectornaut on Ah, Curses!

kbrhnd, I still haven't gotten around to purchasing this deck yet, so I am unsure of how well it will work where I play. One thing I can say is that my goal is to only utilize permanents in this deck to keep it in line with my other enchantment list. So while Open the Armory is out, Heliod's Pilgrim is certainly something I'll test. It might be a way to grab Contaminated Ground or some other utility options that find their way to the sideboard. I do also want to stick with the bestow package though, and they can't be tutored with a Pilgrim. Swapping out Bitterheart Witch now is a possibility too. It's hard to say whether it's preferable to spend 8 mana over two turns or 5 mana over a variable number of turns to get Curse of Misfortunes. In general, though, a witch being too expensive will probably mean that the curses are also too expensive. You can only be lucky enough to have Hero of Iroas some of the time. Luckily, my meta does tend to be on the slower side.
