Doom Blade Discussion

Pheardemons on Witness the power of the Maelstrom.

ComboCrazy - Yea man just continuously beating face. Plus Siege Rhino is a 7/8 - drain and gain three life, with trample. I put in Unflinching Courage so lifelink and trample could keep the game going as well. And I did bring back Fusion Elemental. I figured one huge ass scary monster could suffice, even if it does die to Doom Blade haha.

I did also add in Mantis Rider as a 6/6 for three mana with flying, vigilance, and haste. Brought back Collected Company and made a decent sideboard. Let me know what yal think of the update!

RedJokr doing alright man. Another semester is about to be done, going to have to work my ass off for the summer to pay off bills and my magic habit that is all on credit haha. To graduate next spring I'll have to be taking 18 and 19 credits respectively, and I just don't know if I have that much in me. It would be nice to hurry up and be done with my B.A.

Ya we can do that, send me an initiate.. I don't need the Doom Blades though, I have about 50 of them. I'm just looking for the Duel Deck ones for the art.

Ya I need to remove the comments from my trades, it takes about a minute to get to the bottom haha.. I never thought about that.

Smother isbetter than Doom Blade as it unconditionally kills any creature in the format.

You could let the Norse gods have Hexproof. That way they wouldn't die to cards like Doom Blade or Murder, but would die to board wipes like Damnation and Wrath of God which fits the whole "Ragnarok" idea.

Also, I wouldn't like to see the Norse gods have any attack or blocking restrictions. I would prefer to see them have crap Power/Toughness until you equipped them with their signature weapon.

So, for example, Thor and Mjolnir could look something like:

Thor, God of Thunder

Legendary Creature - God


Whenever Thor, God of Thunder enters the battlefield, search your library for an Equipment card named Mjolnir, reveal it, and put it in your hand.

Equip costs you pay to cost less for Equipments targeting this card.



Legendary Artifact - Equipment

When Mjolnir enters the battlefield, deal 2 damage to target creature.

Equip only to a God creature.

Equipped creature gets +3/+3, flying, and trample.


So, this gives you a 4/5 Flying, Trample, Hexproof by turn 5. While Thor would be impervious to removal spells but can die to battle. Mjolnir gives him a huge boost, but can be destroyed with card effects, and would subsequently weaken him. I think that fits Norse mythology pretty well.

Yeah, I think y'all are on the right track. Conditional indestructibility seems like it's the way to give a feeling of Norse-ness while still unifying with the god creature type. However, I'm with the previous poster that it would be a poor flavor call to be able to Doom Blade a god.

Maybe a "sacrifice this creature when" condition? To show how the Norse pantheon was generally noble and selfless? (I'll admit, my Norse mythology needs some brushing-up.) Like the W one could be "sacrifice Odin when you control no other creatures", or something.

I feel like any condition for turning indestructibility "on" has got to be pretty powerful. An undercosted creature that can't get indestructible is just asking for Fatal Push. Maybe it'll be a Yahenni-like "indestructible until EOT" clause.

This is such a cute love story... until Stormchaser Mage gets Doom Blade-ed. Oh, I really hate when that happens!

Maybe if you were to enlist the help of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Shadowstorm Vizier's...cousin... You know what? I'll just leave you to the story. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet gives you the strong push you need to break through the enemies meat-shield.

I really like how this is going, I can't wait to hear how the story ends! I hope you have many great games with this deck! I hope I helped in some way or another.

This deck can NOT win against anything. You can cast Azor's Elocutors on 6th turn because your lands ETB tapped and than you must wait a few turns to win? Do you know that modern decks win at 3rd or 4th turn of the game? It means that you lose much earlier than you are able to cast your only win conditon. What is more you do not have any response to protect it against Path to Exile, Doom Blade, Counterspell or some sideboard cards like Surgical Extraction or Nevermore.

xyr0s on My First Deck

I didn't recommend anything expensive (fetches, goyf, etc.). But yes, Doom Blade is twice the price of Cast into Darkness.

It's just that, in my opinion, there are cards that just have no business being in a modern deck. And then there's some that it's probably possible to make a funny deck around (like Scute Mob that could do well with other cards that count land or have landfall, or Rot Shambler, which could grow quite big with the right set-up). And no matter how budget friendly a deck you make, you still need to prepare for opponents that are not-quite-as-budget, and for the staples that aren't particularly expensive. Which is why Brood Monitor is a bad idea - 6 mana invested in a toughness 3 creature (plus tokens)... a Lightning Bolt later, and it's just a few tokens.
