Disfigure Discussion

Jomse on Mono-Black 19 Relentless Rats!

Greetings! Instead of Disfigure consider using Defile it has potential for getting rid of all sorts of "late" game creatures.

Peisistratos on Competitive Modern Mill

Hello itachi45! I counted Grixis Whirza among the Urza decks. You can find some words on the matchup in the matchup walkthroughs.

My list is able to naturally win on turn 5 at the latest pretty much every game, even when accounting for mulligans and mana issues. Fogs merely adds more consistency against combat phase decks.

I want to make clear that I suggest to play fogs when the majority of the field plans to win through combat phase. That hasn't been the case anymore since the banning of Hoogak. Since then, I cut Darkness enyirely in favor of maindeck Surgical Extraction s. I rounded up the sideboard with Disfigure , useful both against aggro and more importantly against Spirits, Humans, Hatebears and the like.

pistolpeteiii on Mono-Black Aggro : Throne of Eldraine

chuck3327 thanks for your input, however I intend to keep this to mono-black. I think a build is something we will see in the new standard, however the splash doesn't make much sense for this deck style. Judith, the Scourge Diva and Ayara, First of Locthwain are most effective in a "go-wide" or token strategy. This deck instead looks to maximize the effect of a few select powerful creatures.

Clackbridge Troll is a card I considered, however it won't be a useful creature for at least 1 or 2 turns if the goats aren't removed. This also provides the opponent with creatures to chump block Rotting Regisaur .

Duress is very strong in the current standard because Planeswalkers such as Teferi, Time Raveler and Chandra, Acolyte of Flame are the focus of many decks. I expect to see more Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Oko, Thief of Crowns in the new meta, rendering Duress even stronger in the main deck. This paired with Drill Bit allows me to get information about my opponents hand, while also taking away removal/sweepers/troublesome permanents.

Disfigure is my 1 mana removal for the mono black build, specifically for aggro creatures as well as mana producing creatures. It also can double as a combat trick if need be.

Kjartan on Liliana's incursion

The first obvious fix to this would be to fill out your playset of Ghoulcaller's Chant before you start adding Disentomb s. But ultimately, I don't think you should play too many of those effects, as they are not super consistent in a deck that doesn't self-mill, and they are just dead cards until you even have a creature in the yard.

Now, some changes that could be made to improve the deck overall would be to remove the cards that don't do anything but gain life. Gaining life is one of the weakest mechanics in magic and you need to be given absurdly hight amounts of it before it's worth it on its own. Cards that do other things than gain life, like Gifted Aetherborn can be amazing, but Crypt Incursion and Staff of the Death Magus are pretty awful.

I would also cut some of the clunkier 4-drops to ensure you don't get out-tempoed by faster decks.

Some relatively cheap suggestions to replace them with:

Dark Salvation , Diregraf Colossus , Disfigure , Cemetery Reaper , Inquisition of Kozilek .

Kogarashi on Can I respond to a ...

Now, if you suspect your opponent has a response, you do get priority first after your Disfigure goes on the stack and could cast something else in response to your own spell on the assumption your opponent has, say, a Counterspell or a Giant Growth or something like that.

You couldn't do it with Duress because it's not an instant, but if you had a Mardu Charm , for instance, you could try to pre-emptively get rid of your opponent's possible response before they use it (or reveal they even have one).

But as others have said, once your opponent actually responds with their spell, it's on the stack and you can't try to take it out of their hand with your spell.

To be clear: a response isn't just someone saying "I want to do something", it's actually doing something. If your opponent responds to your Disfigure by casting a spell from their hand then you can make another response to that spell, but you can't back up the game to somehow respond before they cast it.

Neotrup on Can I respond to a ...

Once your opponent casts their response, it's on the stack so you cannot make them discard it. There is no time that you know the card they are wanting to cast while it's still in their hand. Additionally, Duress is a sorcery so it cannot be cast in response to anything under normal circumstances. You could respond to their response with another Disfigure so that their creature dies before their response resolves.

Lycasde on Can I respond to a ...

Let's say I casted Disfigure and my opponent has a response to me casting disfigure. Can I cast Duress if the spell he was about to use hasn't hit the stack yet? or do I need to give him priority in response to my Disfigure ?
