Dying Wish Discussion

xSindrix on Skullbanging

I like. Few suggestions for ya. Dying Wish and Rite of Consumption let you throw Skullbriar at people.

Forge of Heroes , Guildmages' Forum and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would give you more lands that add counters to Skullbriar. Karn's Bastion adds more counters assuming he already has at least one.

With Phyresis already in the deck, you might also consider Glistening Oil . Skullbriar's ability won't keep the -1/-1 counters and unlike Phyresis, Glistening Oil can be reused. Rancor would also give you reusable trample.

Forced Adaptation , Ring of Xathrid and Armory of Iroas other potential low-cost +1/+1 counter generators.

Hope you find something you can use in all that text. :)

xSindrix on Skullbriar Smack! (voltron)

Rite of Consumption and Dying Wish give you alternate win conditions with Skullbriar. The aura can also deter a lot of removal. Difficult to destroy Skullbriar if you're going to die for it.

so i have a green black and white black life gain token janky decks im finishing. but my main sac outlet is Nantuko Husk i find it by far the best sac option also combos well with Essence Harvest and Dying Wish as nantuko husk can sac itself to itself so you can 1 shot pretty easy with it. also for fun you can run Murder Investigation for more tokens!

hope this help have fun.

goldlion on Breaking Carnival of Souls

I like the shadow born apostle idea. Seeing as how there’ll be an Essence Warden out for all the life triggers, a Wall of Limbs could be added as well. It’s worked great in the current Ghave version and in conjunction with Jared, it becomes far better than its current ability, but at least there's a backup ability if Jared's not on the field.

Going off the Krav and Wall of Limbs idea: I’ve got a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck where I use giant kresh to kill people with Dying Wish and Jarad effects. However, I have another where I turn him into many small creatures (for Impact Tremors effects) which I then sac back into big creatures ( Carrion Feeder or Skullmulcher for Blood Artist effects) something that could be an interesting direction with Carnival and the creature etb triggers for into Exsanguinate or swampy tricks.

Korozda Guildmage is an example, but there's a handful of others I've found, though Carrion , Ghoulcaller Gisa and Fungal Sprouting would be the added choices for a Golgari deck.

Here's the deck for ideas/conversation's sake - you all will be the first to see it. It wasn't ready to go public cause I'm editing up the flavour story still and need to balance it a bit more for consistency... It's got a side mill strategy but mainly kills through ''growth and decay'' (hence the name). I think it could inform a strong take on a Carnival version, related to the style seshiro_of_the_orochi is hinting at. I'd add carnival to it actually, if I didn't have to remove much of the synergy the deck needs for the Essence Warden and other life gain effects.

There’s a whole bunch, actually. Check out Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer) for some BG effects. You’ve also got repeatable ones like Surestrike Trident and similar effects like Dying Wish. Good luck!

hullos on Not That Kind of Counter Spell

first off, thanks for the recommendations. As for the cards I like a lot of them the only 2 I dint like was the lich and the Dying Wish because they are kinda janky. But the other cards all look solid and I will test them out for sure. once again thanks.

I like +1/+1 counter decks! I made one with Kresh the Bloodbraided that was fun although it didn't work too well in my play group haha. But I do have some ideas for you: Death's Presence, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Primeval Bounty, Dying Wish (great once you get some bigger creatures), Ring of Kalonia, Primordial Hydra and Animation Module.

+1 from me
