Drown in Sorrow Discussion

Emzed on Turn 4 Win! The Abzan Switcheroo!

5 days ago

Reclaim is quite a bad card, and you certainly don't want 4 of this kind of effect. I would play Renegade Rallier instead, the card is way better and also helps with recursion (not Doran, but everthing else). Unfortunately, it doesn't work well without fetchlands. Also, Noxious Revival is strictly better than Reclaim, but still not a card that i would want in my deck.
Further, 17 creatures seems like a low number. Sure, Lingering Souls and Commune with the Gods kind of count, but with cards like Tower Defense you really want multiple creatures on the board at all times. I would absolutely play 2-3 more Yoked Ox / Tasseled Dromedary, and probably 1-2 Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. If your budget allows it, Spellskite would be another great addition, since it's 0/4 without defender, protects your important synergy cards, and disrupts several decks like Bogles and Infect. My preferred creature count would be 20-25.
Your current list is extremely light on disruption, and the only effect you have, Languish, hurts yourself quite a bit (only 6 of your creatures survive without help). It would be much better to have an effect that leaves your 4 toughness creatures alive (Drown in Sorrow?), or just play spot removal like Fatal Push, Path to Exile or Abrupt Decay. A flexible card like Collective Brutality would also be great, and escalate gives you a nice way to make use of redundant copies of Doran and Assault Formation.
For your sideboard i recommend Eidolon of Rhetoric, Duress, Lost Legacy, Fragmentize, Night of Souls' Betrayal and Rest in Peace (or some other graveyard hate).

Rhyno52 on Demon Discard

Someting you could do is playing ramp things. Crypt Ghast, Extraplanar Lens+Snow-Covered Swamp or Heartless Summoning to get your demons much faster. Also Sorin's Vengeance would be a good finisher then.

For killing their creatures, you can go for removal or also board wipes. Go for the Throat, Slaughter Pact, Damnation, Drown in Sorrow...

Card draw could be vital, some Sign in Blood could also kill your opponent or Phyrexian Arena for more long term card draw.

Also a cool Card to play with those much devotion would be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for even more ramp and Gray Merchant of Asphodel to totally fuck up everyone at the table.

Your discard plan is a little bit too far away from your plan to get out the deamons because you cant to both at the same time, discard is only good in early turns and in combination of early board presence from your side. You should keep things like Inquisition and Distress but not that much. You also need room to win the game. Maybe 4 Discard 4-6 removals/wipes the rest demons and ramp. But you have to test and look for yourself what you want to do with your deck.

i hope this helps.

Here's what goes through my mind when considering Erebos's Titan in your list.. 1) It's first ability is extremely conditional, and therefore unreliable. (Not to mention opposing Dismembers are a thing).. 2) You have no way to trigger it's second ability at all..

So while Lashwrithe doesn't add Devotion, it does stick around and grow bigger & bigger.. A Godsend(lol) when you're in "top deck mode", and you draw a small creature; even better when it's a Deathtouch/Lifelink..

You actually make a good observation about Flaying Tendrils.. In that case you should keep the pair in your sideboard.. (Myself, I ran a mainboard Mutilate and a Damnation in the side).. However Protection doesn't apply to most Boardwipes in general, because they don't Block, Target, Damage, or Enchant.. (example: A Mirran Crusader can be taken out by a Drown in Sorrow)..

Faerie Macabre confused me at first too.. You see, this card can technically go into any deck, (I actually run this in Modern & Legacy colorless Eldrazi) because you never actually Cast it! It just chills in your hand until a Snapcaster Mage comes down & targets a spell, or they try to turn-1 reanimate a Griselbrand, or something else scary out of their Graveyard (even yours!).. You then say: "While that is on the Stack, I'll respond with discarding Faerie Macabre to exile X & Y.." Super sneaky & cutthroat as hell, but I will concede that it is strictly worse against Living End. But such is life, and why you want to build a varied sideboard..

Here's a link to my old list: Devoted to Obliteration.. (Note: I haven't updated the Primer in forever)..

This is kind of odd to me. It's a hybrid of Aristocrats and Soul Sisters. I'm not entirely sure what to say apart from you need some reliable removal and also save up for some Bitterblossoms. Are the soul sisters really needed here? you gain enough life as-is from cutthroat and artist. Also, consider some kind of boardwipe like Drown in Sorrow, or Damnation if you can afford it.

Travisr2h on Weird Remedies - Turn 3 Infinite/Win

Great comments. I was doubtful of taking up space with protection of 1 and 2 toughness creatures, just because turn 2 or 3 Pyroclasm or Drown in Sorrow is so easy to play. Its the same reason I am less excited about elves for mana.

After some testing, I think Ranger's Guile is really good as it gets Devoted Druid to 3 toughness. I am also trying out Postmortem Lunge, as it gives haste.

I really like this kind of deck, +1 by me.Did you consider something like Drown in Sorrow, Infest, Yahenni's Expertise or even Languish as a pseudo sweeper against aggro decks with some fast, but small creatures?
