Despise Discussion

lagotripha on The Will of the Warrior

w/b budget modern warriors is an interesting Idea. I'd reccomend increasing the number of 1drops (duress over castigate) but the number of relevant non red/green warriors in modern is almost just tarkir block Vampire Lacerators and Nezumi Shadow-Watcher only work so well, even abusing Shields of Velis Vel to make stuff ninjas.

Sideboard in disruption and protection, and run a substantial amount mainboard- Duress, Vendetta, Despise, Condemn, Ratchet Bomb, Pithing Needle, Tormod's Crypt etc depending on meta. If you can build a solid creature engine mainboard, the rest is just stopping your opponent winning. I'd reccomend a bunch of removal and Malakir Cullblade/Seeker of the Way, as they synergize well with the plan.

do consider the addition of a sideboard, that way you have more of a card pool available for when you have games that go bo3 or bo5 even.

most times you want to put more control/answers into your side board, so cards like Duress or Despise, that way you can fill the main board with more immediate threats like adding Diregraf Ghoul or Highborn Ghoul

other than that, the deck itself is a decently constructed casual deck using, im sure, just cards you own. looks nice

Welcome!

So I note you haven't considered lands as yet. For casual play the common/uncommon tap lands are ok, however the rare lands can get expensive. For your deck and theme I would suggest Scoured Barrens and Blighted Steppe.

Soul Warden is a card you will want, probably over Deathgreeter alternatively Perimeter Captain might be an option. Falkenrath Noble is probably too slow, consider cards like Lone Rider  Flip, Gifted Aetherborn, Blood Artist, Ajani's Pridemate or Voracious Hatchling. For a finisher a card like Blood Baron of Vizkopa or Divinity of Pride would fit.

Last but not least non-creature spells. At simplest buy a set of Duress and Despise for disruption alongside Journey to Nowhere and Victim of Night for removal.

If you don't mind spending a bit more Westvale Abbey  Flip or Athreos, God of Passage are fun cards... I hope this is of help!

I still like the idea of adding in maindeck discard to protect the combo, such as inquisition, Thoughtseize, Duress, or Despise. It acts as a turn 1 play as well, and if you throw in Brain in a Jar, you'll have a one mana sorcery to cast with it (with the ability to do it during their upkeep, mind you).

I see your reasoning for Manamorphose, but I think your lands should get you there just fine. I guess it is a pseudo-ramp with scions though. Ultimately your call. Plus, it is ramp with Brain in a Jar ( although you'd want to cast Beck with brain over manamorphose).

Raven's Crime

Thoughtseize Harsh Scrutiny Despise Inquisition of Kozilek

Retrace comes into conflict with too many cards in your deck. You want your swamps on the board not in the Graveyard.

You are missing some cards for the 60 cards as well.

Try some control Fatal Push Languish Damnation Go for the Throat

Goodluck =)

Interesting idea, though I'm not sure how efficient it is...

Corpse Traders, Dark Withering and Priest of the Blood Rite are bad cards, Priest particularly so, since if the demon is removed you still end up losing life and it is a 5cmc spell. You should be running some classic removal or disruption instead of these cards, be it Despise, Dismember, Duress or Hero's Downfall (assuming budget) simply because you can't guarantee you can trigger Madness.

You probably want 4x Collective Brutality rather than 2 as you don't have that many good discard outlets. A card like Zulaport Cutthroat would also fit the theme nicely.

You will have issues with board sweepers, enchantments and exile effects if you don't have efficient ways to make your opponent discard them.

Since you're new to the game, you could try the cards TheDuggernaught, but forget about the more expensive ones.

Replace them for cards like Duress, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime or maybe even Despise. These cards are much cheaper and there's always the chance you won't like the deck too much. It's better to start small.

As for removal you might also like Smother and Ultimate Price since both kill many things in modern and are cheap enough to be bought.

As for the sideboard you'll need... you could maybe try Dismember, Mutilate, Relic of Progenitus, Pithing Needle, Disfigure, Bile Blight.


Try to start small. Test this a lot in the test section of the site... Check your mana base for 20-22 lands... and try to pick cheap efficient cards if you're afraid to compromise too much money with a simple cardgame.
