Drakestown Forgotten Discussion

SmokeyBear15 on Shirei's Daycare

Hey there! Thanks for looking at my deck (Let 'em Die [Primer: Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker])! Here's some general suggestions for you:

First off, creatures don't come back with Shirei when equiped with Skullclamp, since it boosts their power. And no Ashnod's Altar or Viscera Seer? Those two sac outlets are amazing here.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are amazing token producers. The eldrazi tokens they make can be used for mana ramping, and can sacrifice themselves for death triggers. Neat! I'm testing out the Fabricate abilities of Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Marionette Master as well.

Smothering Abomination, Harvester of Souls, and Grim Haruspex are great for generating card draw for every creature that dies. Vampiric Rites is a 1-drop enchantment (kinda hard to remove) that gives you card draw. Maybe take out the one-time use spells like Read the Bones for these.

I personally like Deathgreeter over Bottle Gnomes, and it has pretty consistently done a higher amount of life gain. Zulaport Cutthroat is a must-have, IMO. It's often my quickest wincon. Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Falkenrath Noble are good for this too, if you have ways to reduce their power to recur them.

You do have a fair number of things with >1 power, or that boost their power. I might recommend Plagued Rusalka, Fume Spitter, and/or Necropede as ways to reduce the power of your bigger creatures, or as a form of removal against your opponents. Maybe instead of Drakestown Forgotten.

You have a lot of discard effects (which is good!), but several of them are sorcery speed (Sadistic Hypnotist, Brain Weevil, Augur of Skulls) or need to be paid for (Drainpipe Vermin). Or that don't recur at all Sadistic Augermage. I might recommend more stuff like Noxious Toad, Mesmeric Fiend, or Disciple of Phenax. That can be used on each opponents turn.

Scarblade Elite doesn't work unless you have another Assassin in graveyard, and only up to 4 times max, and doesn't even recur itself under Shirei. And I like Dutiful Attendant over things like Death Denied or Gravepurge. Maybe look into Living Death as well?

Hope that's not too much info! Welcome to the Perpetual Weenie Murder Club!

Mystic is right. Thankfully you are in black! Black Sun's Zenith Toxic Deluge Mutilate Living Death Damnation these are your best choices. AlsoDrakestown Forgotten could be good.

I've been playing Mirko Vosk, and now I think I am going to switch to Phenax! I've been winning with Mortivore effect dudes, like Academy Elite and Drakestown Forgotten.

B4BY3ATER I have the same problem when I play Marchesa, the Black Rose. Disciple of Griselbrand works wonders on that field. Also I've reuploaded my deck with some great additions. Scourge of the Throne, Bearer of the Heavens and Insurrection are game winning cards in a Marchesa, the Black Rose Deck. Drakestown Forgotten is also a great card the longer the game lasts. Being able to deal with pesky indestructibles and Pumping itself up by dying over and over.

Besides that I'm currently working on a Grenzo, Dungeon Warden deck.
