Dusk Urchins Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Toxic Relationship: Hapatra EDH

LeonGraves123: I'm glad you like the deck! :) Of the cards you highlighted, Cauldron of Souls and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed definitely could find slots. Cryptolith Rite is also something that might work, though the mana curve is low-ish in the deck and it's better to avoid tapping your snakes. I usually don't like Concordant Crossroads much, because it gives your opponents so much advantage... I'm not sure. But the issue really is that the slots are tight. If you wanted to reduce the stax aspect of the deck you could remove some of them for these additions...or maybe Dusk Urchins? If you like the deck, upvotes are always appreciated :)

gdm1989: I wish I had an extra crypt for this deck :'( And I'll try finding a place for Kamahl, Fist of Krosa! And as I said above, if you like the deck, upvotes are nice ;)

guard5: If you wanted to remove the Stax from the deck, I'd add more combo cards (particularly Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and tutors). Fair warning that any deck that plays with -1 counters is going to be relatively staxy by its nature...

I love this deck! I'm building something quite similar, but am trying to maindeck Black Sun's Zenith and possibly Soul Snuffers. In combination with Dusk Urchins, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, and especially Nest of Scarabs, they should help clear the board and generate tons of tokens. What are your thoughts on those?

Also, since you're already running Green, did you consider using Young Wolf instead of Butcher Ghoul?

Took out Melira temporarily, I agree although it sucks to have creatures on your own side die, the extra synergy is too strong. The only issue I have with Dusk Urchins and Necroskitter is that they are pushing the number of three drops in the deck.

If only Wall of Roots used -1/-1 counters!

I don't like Melira, Sylvok Outcast in this--it's nice with Black Sun's Zenith but shuts off your own Devoted Druid. After a quick search through Gatherer, Dusk Urchins and Necroskitter both look interesting.

Dusk Urchins? Does really really well in a deck like this.

Some thoughts:

  1. This deck wants Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, possibly also Crypt of Agadeem and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

  2. Sorin Markov is a better fit than Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

  3. Hero's Downfall or Victim of Night are better removal than Murder.

  4. Card draw Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Dusk Urchins or Scarscale Ritual would work, though Phyrexian Arena is the classic.

  5. Some disruption Smallpox, Dash Hopes and of course Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek.

  6. Plain straight card suggestion; if you don't wan't to use extort itself Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist are taxing effects. Circle of Affliction is like extort but on an enchantment and Smolder Initiate is useful when playing against black.

Lastly, consistency. By this I mean your deck has a lot of variance due to the fact you don't have 4x of the cards you cast. Your mana curve is off, too many 3 drops, not enough value from your higher cost cards (4+ cmc) and not enough land.
