Dying Wish Discussion

NoHellsNoHeavens on BurtReynolds

Dude your suggestion on adding Hatred and Dying Wish is brilliant for my Gisa Zombie deck. Must adds for me now.

Thank you

Some other fatties that are good for (instant) sacing: Phyrexian Dreadnought, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Waning Wurm, Desecration Elemental

Other buffs for zombie armies: Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Coat of Arms (plus the first two help generate mana)

If you want to get tricky you can use Hatred and nearly all your life to make a huge creature, attach Dying Wish then sac with Ghoulcaller Gisa to instantly get all your life back, deal massive damage and make a whole heap of zombies.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Mono-Black Heroic?!?!?

Outside of increasing the number of lands in your deck (20 is a bit low when you the average cost of cards in your deck is 3) and narrowing your focus a bit (more on that later). I would recommend these cards to consider.

  • Underworld Connections: It draws you cards while increasing your devotion count.

  • Necrobite: can activate heroic and work as removal.

  • Tainted Strike: works in a similar way to Necrobite and can even win you the game out of nowhere.

  • Virulent Swipe: works like Necrobite and activates Heroic twice.

  • Untamed Hunger: works with Necrobite, Tainted Strike, and Virulent Swipe (I'm starting to see a pattern here) and pretty much anything with deathtouch for that matter. It also removes multiple creatures., unless they don't block, in which case you're still coming out ahead. Plus it activates Heroic.

  • Undying Evil: It's cheap, gives one of your creatures some recursion, and activates heroic.

  • Bile Blight is pretty helpful to have in sideboard against tokens.

  • Dying Wish: is pretty funny to put your opponents in a tough position when you enchant your own creatures with it.

  • Gift of Orzhova : is fantastic with just about any of your characters while also increasing your devotion count.

  • Artificer's Hex: will help you against any pesky equipment and is likely to stick around since your enchanting their equipment and not the creature. I wouldn't mainboard this though.

As far as narrowing your deck's focus goes I would suggest focusing more on either discard or creature destruction because your deck does both, but could do each better if you added more cards to do that.

If you choose to go with more sacrifice/creature destruction route:

If you choose to add more discard:

  • Waste Not: to get the most out of each card discarded.

Hope these suggestions help.

KaiserChronic on First Modern Deck: Fling, Dying ...

3 weeks ago

I keep going back and forth on what damage/lifegain combo I want in my deck Don't Feed the Trolls. I like Fling because I can activate it in response to removal spells, and with Dying Wish attached to my creature it's usually a one-hit-ko. What I don't like is that Dying Wish is susceptible to Golgari Charm and the like, leaving me with no lifegain capabilities. However, an opponent may want to target my Hardened Scales instead, so it's a toss up. What's really nice about Dying Wish is that it makes my opponent think twice about destroying my creature. Essence Harvest is nice because there is less risk involved, but leaves my creature open for removal and costs one more mana. Suggestions???
