Empty the Warrens Discussion

Lumek on Monoblack devotion

5 days ago

Report from last FNM, went 2:1:
Match 1 against dredge: First game was fast and i did almost nothing. Second game was much better thanks to sideboarding. I managed to remove some important stuff with Tormod's Crypt and buy some time, land Night of Souls' Betrayal shutting down Bloodghast and Narcomoeba. But still Prized Amalgam and Conflagrate was enough to kill me. I desperately needed some other graveyard removal. But Bojuka Bog didn't show up at all and i died with Nihil Spellbomb sitting on the top of my library.
Match 2 against another dredge: First game was straightforward, i bought some time thanks to Gifted Aetherborn, but that was all, no Bojuka Bog, my only chance to win before sideboarding. Second game i won because of board sweeper followed up by graveyard removal, Mutilate and Nihil Spellbomb. Used Bojuka Bog and lifelink before it to buy some time. Game was very long, in the end i had a lot of swamps and Lashwrithe was really powerfull and attached to lifelink creature the game was over. I survived the thanks to Arguel's Blood Fast. Draw cards at the end of opponent's turn and immediately transform on your upkeep, than attach Lashwrithe to anything and job is done. Third game was similar to second, lifegain to stay in game long enough to wreck opponent's graveyard and win because of extremely powerfull Lashwrithe.
Match 3 against storm: Opponent began. I discarded two cards from opponent's hand on turn 1 and turn 2. On turn 4 i was on healthy 27 lifes. Next i was killed by 29 Grapeshots :). Before sideboard discard is my only chance, but still i'm weak against combo. Second game after sideboarding: turn 3 Lost Legacy on Grapeshot with Night of Souls' Betrayal in hand. On his turn 3 with Baral, Chief of Compliance he made something like 100 goblins thanks to Empty the Warrens. On my next turn i landed Night of Souls' Betrayal (he had no open mana, so it was safe) and scooped. Game 3 was very similar to game 2, but no so fast. There were two turns, where i was just hoping (Lost Legacy was Remanded), but once i exiled all his grapeshots and had sweeper in hand i was calm.

Notes: Victim of Night is good budget removal for monoblack, but useless against dredge (Prized Amalgam and Bloodghast). Discard also useless against dredge, so before sideboarding i have almost no chance to win.Against storm, sideboard out all spot removal and let them cast Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer and handle their wincons. They have usually one before sideboard but two after sideboard. Remember Empty the Warrens! But Empty the Warrens can be handled on sorcery speed on your turn, so have all sweepers in your deck. Be careful of Remand . Lashwrithe scales really good as game goes on. Great synergy with Arguel's Blood Fast and Rite of Consumption. In one game with 7 mana i played Abyssal Persecutor attached Lashwrithe for 2 mana and 2 lifes and immediatelly sac it to Rite of Consumption. 26 lifes swing in total:)

If in the market for suggestions, Aetherflux Reservoir might be a good idea if you really plan on casting lots of spells. Isochron Scepter, Elite Arcanist, and Echo Mage can help you get a little more bang for your buck. Also, curses tend to be underrated in my opinion, so consider Curse of Echoes and Curse of Bloodletting. Wild Ricochet might be something you want but I get it if you think its too pricey. Also also, why no cards that actually have the keyword "storm," like Ignite Memories, Grapeshot, or Empty the Warrens? Finally, if you're feeling REALLY brave, you could try running Eye of the Storm. Emphasis on try.

maybe replace Goblin Offensive with Empty the Warrens

Empty the Warrens is probably a better plan b than guttersnipe. also pyromancers swath is tough to get a good payoff with. also Baral, Chief of Compliance is probably better than goblin electromancer

colton815 on Making a modern deck out ...

i really recommend staying away from modern for a while until you've had a chance to research the top decks and really understand "why" they're good. not trying to be mean, but if you've only played 9 total games in your life, you're not ready for modern. its a format where games are usually over or locked down by turn 4. infect can win turn 3. storm can play an Empty the Warrens for 10 goblin tokens turn 2. tron can drop turn 3 Karn Liberated. Through the Breach into Emrakul, the Aeons Torn can be played turn 3.

you also can't turn a commander deck into a modern deck. many commander cards are not legal in modern, and the viable strategies vary too greatly.

shrapnel_ Empty the Warrens is only useful for impact tremors, so it would muddy up the flow, I feel. Rite of Flame is like Seething Song, only slightly worse, as it also kind of slows the flow. I do, however, really like Manamorphose, as it is essentially just a free card in hand that allows for more deck cycling. I will try to find a place to add that in, as it seems helpful.
