Echoing Decay Discussion

AnOrdinaryNoob on Pauper Elves

I agreed with adding x4Manamorphose, I really really like them, In my opinion its kinda playing with 56 cards, would definetely run the full playset in "any" greend or red deck.

I might add some Essence Warden, or Wellwisher instead, I dont know.

And about the Fireball idea, I love the idea, might add a few in the side and/or main deck, to have an alternative win condition, since its not so expected.


I dint know about Echoing Decay so Ill definetely wont run four copies of any of the mana generator elves, besides Birchlore Rangers.

And about Elvish Visionary and Sylvan Ranger Ill really have to think about it, since I personally love to draw/make thinier the deck, but probably will cut at least one or two of both them.

Also, its Lys Alana Huntmaster worth adding? Its not bad at all, and can work greatly with Elvish Vanguard or Ivy Lane Denizen buts its too expensive in my opinion.

Sorry for the long wait. I really wanted to coment both of you sooner and definitely would appreaciate more tips coming from you. See you later.

looks good, some things to consider. run 3Elvish Mystic, 3Llanowar Elves and 2 Fyndhorn Elves this helps against Echoing Decay. also cut 1Sylvan Ranger and 1Elvish Visionary for 2Elvish Vanguard. the one island is not as much of a problem as you think the Birchlore Rangers rely help this.

Now you just need a solid sideboard to protect your zombies from stuff like Echoing Decay. Parallel lives will probably get hit with enchantment hate. Idk what people usually play in Modern. I don't have the wallet play it competitively, haha. Decks with black usually use Go for the Throat. They're likely to use spot removal like that to take down your Grave Titan, but atleast you'll get 2-4 Zombies out of him. But blue control decks will probably be most effective against your deck.

Reason: UG Infect is criminally under represented in the pauper format. The problem with Infect and Pauper is that format such as legacy and modern where infect can roam free because of the narrow focus of the removal spells. The removal spells in pauper tend to sacrifice effects which make investing in one creature difficult. I guess the game plan would be to play 2-3 infect creatures and attack! ATTACK! ATTACK! and pump the non sacrificed creature.


  1. what is your board plan against Terminate? Echoing Decay? Disfigure? and other targeted removal in game 2?

  2. Is a SB Pulse of Murasa too slow for the deck's strategy?

  3. I like the 4 tool box lands. Would you ever use more than of the tool box lands in the main deck? Is this META dependent?

Soul's Attendant (if nothing else, switch out two of the Soul Wardens to lessen the effectiveness of cards like Bile Blight and Echoing Decay). Chalice of Life  Flip would work well, as would many of the monowhite planeswalkers. Ajani Goldmane and Ajani, Caller of the Pride take advantage of the lifegain best and most versions of Elspeth are good with weenies.

There's also Night's Whisper but you can't finish your opponent off by playing it and as long as you're playing mono, it's cmc doesn't bothers you. Read the Bones is nice but costs more and when your deck is like 90% discard source, you don't really need to draw a specific card. Besides in my opinion it is better to play Sign in Blood + e.g. Raven's Crime than just Read the Bones in round 3 (having in mind that rack can be triggered).

I like my creatures, so I can perform some blocks against aggro decks and use their attack aginst them (Drainpipe Vermin or Cry of Contrition that you mentioned). Also sometimes I got some problems with getting rid of my opponents hand. So I put Stronghold Rats into my deck (Specter's Shroud is an alternative).

But I get it that you want the deck to stay that way. In this case think about some mass removals like Echoing Decay, Bile Blight or Flaying Tendrils for your sideboard.

The_Kazekyo on responding to Faerie Miscreant's trigger ...

So let's say my opponent already have a Faerie Miscreant on the battlefield and then casts a second one the question is if i respond to the faerie's triggered ability by casting an Echoing Decay does he still draw a card?

Since you produce quite a bit of 1/1s for your opponent and you seem to spash black along Doran, I might want to recommend mainboarding something light aoe like Drown in Sorrow, Echoing Decay, Nausea, or Golgari Charm etc. lots of one time debuffs. Or possibly a sweet synergy with those mechanics as a permanent always killing them rigth away with Night of Souls' Betrayal. Quite a bit of interesting path to take with your approach! Keep me posted!
