Cut // Ribbons Discussion

Legendary_penguin_of_death that was the original list I saw that sparked my interest but I wasn't a fan of the enchantment ramp of Gift of Paradise or the potential color issues of BB for Cut // Ribbons in a deck with basically no other black. This list was the one that really stuck out in how focused it is and the inevitability Banefire can give once games go long. I am considering the black splash for (probably) 2 copies of Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and some number of The Eldest Reborn. This is still just an idea though, and I probably won't jump into buying Bolas until I do some testing and decide it's what the deck wants. It's got game winning potential though and this deck can probably make it to the planeswalker side more easily than anything else in standard currently, so that's tempting in itself. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you magicsheep!

Angrath, the Flame-Chained, Duress, and Authority of the Consuls are definitely going in the sideboard :D

Idk, I've never been a big fan of Chandra, Torch of Defiance. She's versatile, but I usually don't have mana to spend on her +1, the mana that she does generate in her other +1 is pretty limited, and her -3 I can get from Cut // Ribbons for half the price. But I'll try play-testing her in my deck to see if she fits.

Have you tried black with Jaya. I have and Cut // Ribbons seems like one of the best Jaya cards. Also try Primal Amulet  Flip seems like it was made for her.

I have looked at adding a few [Spellweaver Eternal] but I'm not sure they fit. I'm hoping to run control until I get enough mana to link Cut / Ribbons with Neheb and Torment of Hailfire. Think that would work?

Cool deck: First off just observations on the deck; Carnage Tyrant does Nezahals job so its an easy cut. Playing Gift of Paradise over Spring to Mind will help you survive early turns.

I don't see the point in running 2 mana- mana dorks since your ramp curve is 1, 3, 5 not 2, 4, 6. If you are going all in on ramp then Llanowar Elves would be a lot more effective.

Now if you ever decide to run black instead of blue then the following should be pretty useful:

Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Torment of Hailfire, Journey to Eternity  Flip, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Yawgmoth's Vile Offering, Demonlord Belzenlok, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Moment of Craving, Vraska's Contempt, Cut / Ribbons, Vicious Offering, Unlicensed Disintegration, Yahenni's Expertise, Phyrexian Scriptures, Golden Demise, Fatal Push

I found for dealing with aggro Festering Mummy is insanely good. Can deal with a lot of 2/1s or 1/1s and also trades in combat with 2/2s. To top it all off it is also a great sacrifice outlet.

Frankly, when you have enough mana and reanimation you can start to just ignore your opponents counter spells. With exception to syncopate.

The only thing you'll lose out on is Pull from Tomorrow though if all your cards are mana sinks its a non-issue.

The Scarab God (if you can afford him), Torment of Hailfire, Cut / Ribbons and Fight with Fire would all be worth consideration. Scarab God is well, powerful and works great with zombies. The last 3 are finishers, with Cut acting as early removal.

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and returning to Magic from a long break. The last set that came out before I gave it up was the Urzas set.

Anyways, out of boredom I started playing magic duels on my Xbox and then reconnected with some of my old friends who still play magic. I'd like to get a paper version of the my favorite deck from duels but am so out of touch with the game I'm not even sure what's out there. The format is pretty casual, but from what I can tell most of the decks my friends use would likely fall into modern format, but there are also some really old cards too, so im pretty flexible as far as sets I can use. Lastly I'd like to keep this fairly budget, I like the game but am not sure I'm ready to sink real money into it yet... and yes I realize that means the the liliana in the deck list has to come out.

The main thing I like about this deck is the interaction between the ruthless snipers, the various discard enablers and the madness mechanic. So I'm hoping you all could make some suggestions to take further advantage of that. I realize some cards in there aren't great but they're what i have available on the video game.

2 Cryptbreaker, 3 Ruthless Sniper, 2 Sanitarium Skeleton, 2 Lightning Axe, 3 Furyblade Vampire, 2 Call the Bloodline, 2 Macabre Waltz, 1 avacyn's judgement, 2 Distemper of the Blood, 3 Bloodmad Vampire, 1 Olivia, Mobilized for War, 4 firey temper , 1 Liliana, the Last Hope, 1 Avaricious Dragon, 2 Bloodhall Priest, 2 Merciless Javelineer, 1 Biting Rain, 1 Cut / Ribbons, 2 Horror of the Broken Lands, 1 Incorrigible Youth,

9 swamp, 9 mountain, 2 Dragonskull Summit, 2 Geier Reach Sanitarium,

Yeah, I got that you were using Walking Ballista and Cut / Ribbons as finishers, but an 8 mana ballista on turn 5 just isn't that impactful against most decks. It can sort of be a boardwipe against small creature decks and it's a great mana sink for future turns but I wouldn't really on just Ballista as a primary finisher.
