Dark Hatchling Discussion

DrukenReaps on By the Horror! They're Infected!

So I would consider the following for removal Spoils of Blood, Call of the Nightwing, Dark Hatchling, Phyrexian Obliterator, Creakwood Liege, Deathbringer Liege.

I will say I'm listing some awesome cards, Obliterator in particular, but 4 black in a 4 color deck is nigh impossible to get consistently. The Lieges are good too but their focus on color holds them back in this deck. The other 3 are more along the lines of 'neat' meaning they are certainly cool but are either too inefficient or not impactful enough.

Hope that helps open up a little space.

If you wanted more creature removal like Ashling, the Extinguisher, something like Dark Hatchling or Bane of Bala Ged might be fun.

Sorry I posted last comment without stating those I would replace.

Celestial Force has no big interaction with anything in your deck.

Chorus of the Conclave there are so many better late drops out there like Butcher of Malakir or Avenger of Zendikarfor example.

Dark Hatchling is there for spot removal, but could be easily dethroned by something like Vindicate or Woodfall Primus

Deadly Recluse has nothing to do with counters either, can be switched for Rhys the Redeemed or Gyre Sage

You could also really use big beaters such as Mycoloth, Vigor, or Worldspine Wurm.I'm sorry I don't have more time to suggest things, even though I still have tons of things to suggest, but today's a crazy day I hope you understand x.x

I'm also thinking more spot removal with legs might be good. Bone Shredder, Dark Hatchling type creatures. Probably Bone Shredder.
