Dauthi Marauder Discussion

Guardian of the Guildpact is both very hard to block and very hard to kill. Another wincon might be using an unblockable creature like Tormented Soul or Dauthi Marauder together with Phyresis , just to make sure you kill your opponent even if they can get life every turn too.

The main issue is that all of these can be countered, but there's not much that can be done about that.

First off, love this deck! You got a +1 from me! I've always been attracted to Shadow as a mechanic, but I've never gotten around to delving into it too much.

I like Dauthi Mercenary * better than Dauthi Marauder . Both are 3-drops with shadow, but while the Marauder starts out with one more power, the Mercenary has the potential to be pumped up higher, especially if you have a Dark Ritual and nothing else to play with it. It's a good late-game mana sink when you've run out of cards in hand (and considering your curve is so low, I imagine that that's easy to do).

* T/O claims that Dauthi Mercenary isn't pauper legal, but Scryfall disagrees, because it's a common on the MTGO-only set Vintage Masters. From my understanding, MTGO legality is currently also used for paper pauper.

Another card that scales for the late game is Endless Scream . Maybe try a 1-of?

I also like Infernal Scarring , probably in place of Predator's Gambit . It's 1 more mana, but Gambit's toughness boost and Intimidate are irrelevant, whereas the death-trigger card draw makes the creature a less attractive target for removal, while being a much better target for your own Rite of Consumption .

Alternatively, have you considered equipment as well as auras? The only one I'd suggest is Bonesplitter (in place of Predator's Gambit ). Sure, it costs 1 more mana for the very first time, but against a removal- / bounce-heavy deck, it'll be way better in the long run. You won't get 2-for-1-ed then, and subsequent re-equips are just as cheap as Gambit.

Pretty similar to my own shadow deck, you may want to compare for ideas! :D

Specifically, Edge of Divinity has some alternatives that are strictly better for this deck, like Predator's Gambit . Molting Snakeskin might also be a nice alternative. I also removed Bonesplitter and Dauthi Marauder for being too expensive, but all alternatives for the latter are easier to block.

ClockworkSwordfish on Shadows (Legacy Budget)

I think you're a little light on creatures. You might want to run Dauthi Marauder over Scare Tactics, which requires you're attacking with at least three creatures for it to be worthwhile. Even then, it has the same effect as Bump in the Night , which doesn't need any creatures to work.

Some other ideas:

Dowsing Dagger  Flip gives your opponent two useless creatures that can't block any of your guys, meaning it will immediately flip.

Dauthi Trapper or Dauthi Embrace plus Dauthi Cutthroat is removal every turn.

Lashwrithe will be a little pricey at four mana, but it's a huge boost that should close out the game quickly.
