Dripping-Tongue Zubera Discussion

hungry000 on Pfft...I've been Zubera since before you were born

although i just realized that Dripping-Tongue Zubera's the only one that makes tokens lol. That makes it harder, but playing Ember-Fist Zuberas in place of the Floating-Dreams would help kill the opponent the turn you drop the Immortal Servitude. But maybe Arcane Adaptation from Ixalan can make the plan more effective? Metallic Mimic can come into play as a Zubera, and is conveniently cmc 2 so that would power up the number of tokens you can get from Dripping-Tongue.

Pauper spirits with Tortured Existence is fun, especially using cards like Plagued Rusalka along with cards like Ashen-Skin Zubera, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and Floating-Dream Zubera. Thief of Hope is a great engine for life drain and getting spirits back to the hand.

If you're keeping the soulshift creatures, I would consider adding Shinen of Life's Roar as a finisher along with Wicked Akuba.

Gnaw to the Bone is solid for survivability, Death Denied is an arcane spell that can get some creature cards back to the hand.

As much as going 3 colors seems to be a good idea, I have to say, Dripping-Tongue Zubera has proven to be extremely strong in playtesting in my deck. Following a boardwipe with a Consume Spirit on the leftover tokens is damn powerful.

Also, you may want to look at Killing Wave as a main or sideboard card. In my deck, I can usually manage to get it up to 3 or 4, thus hitting my opponent for somewhere between 6 and 9 damage or wipe their board as the zuberas would kill them if they paid.

I completely misunderstood how the sac mechanic works. I thought sac triggers stacked and I could regenerate after a sac. Silly noob.

I got rid of those effects for cheap the cheap token feeders, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and Young Wolf. Dripping-Tongue Zubera excites me because in a perfect world it could provide, what, 15 sac tokens?

To philik : Unearth is quite a good card but I feel like it's a bit too redundant in this deck. My main Undying Evil targets are the Zuberas and between my 7 copies + 4 Undying Evil I feel like I have enough of them to have a consistent game plan.

To Spoon123 : Splashing a third color in pauper ( especially green which doesnt offer much for my deck ) comes with a huge drawback that is significantly bigger then the benefits. You really don't want to have a clunky mana base where most of your lands come into play tapped, trust me.

The few existing 3+ color decks ( Kuldotha jeskai is one of them ) are using ways to fix their mana with Prophetic Prism and Ravnica Bouncelands. You have to think of Kuldotha Jeskai as a RW deck that uses bouncelands for value and splashes blue for Mulldrifter, which is hands down the best card in Pauper. Also, splashing a 5 drop is a lot easier then splashing a 2 drop like Dripping-Tongue Zubera

Devouring Greed is a card I've played with and that I don't recommend to anyone. It's a ''win-more'' card thats only good when you're ahead. Most of the time it'll sit in your hand and there's games where you're never even going to be able to cast it

I like this deck, like it a lot. Just a couple of questions from someone not very familiar with the format:

Personally, I like to go a bit more "all in" on a theme when constructing a deck. Which, in this case, means adding a third color for either Ashen-Skin Zubera or Dripping-Tongue Zubera, basically removing the Oracles (it seems to be the least important card in the deck) just to get more explosive turns out of the deal. How feasible do you think is that in the first place? I know three-color decks with weird manabases do exist in the format (see Kuldotha Jeskai), so I think this might have a shot as well.

While we're on the topic: What's your take on Devouring Greed? Did you ever test with it, and could 7 not be enough Zuberas to support it? Might 12 do the trick? Just trying some thought-experiments here and would love to hear your opinion, if you can provide it =)

I think Strangleroot Geist is the best such card that hasn't been mentioned yet. There's also stuff like Bloodghast.

There are lots of one-drops that do that: Tukatongue Thallid, Young Wolf, Blisterpod, Doomed Traveler and also Dripping-Tongue Zubera. Throw in a Blood Artist, or Essence Warden or Soul Warden, and you're all set.

And though it's not a creature, I think Abzan Ascendancy deserves a mention as sort of doing the thing you want.
