Engineered Plague Discussion

GeeksterPlays on Help With Protection Card Rules

Depending on the colours you run and how much you're wanting to build a deck just to combat that specific token threat, there are lots of answers to pesky token-making decks.

BLACK: Illness in the Ranks, Bile Blight, Engineered Plague, Massacre Wurm could just kill him on the spot, Echoing Decay,

BLUE: Leyline of Singularity, Stifle his Krenko, AEtherspouts attackers, Cyclonic Rift overloaded, Wash Out choosing red, Stormtide Leviathan, Echoing Truth

WHITE: Path to Exile Krenko, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Fumigate, Planar Outburst, Lightmine Field, Magus of the Tabernacle, an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite will stop him playing anything ever again, Magus of the Moat, Ghostly Prison, Leyline of Sanctity stops all burn spells

MULTICOLOUR: Supreme Verdict, Merciless Eviction, Pernicious Deed,

ARTIFACT: Ratchet Bomb, Scourglass, Maelstrom Pulse,

Or play dirty and play RED back against him; Blasphemous Act, Volcanic Fallout, Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods, Scouring Sands, Circle of Flame, Mob Rule and take all the goblins and kill him with them!

Durkle on Illusionary Horror (Torpornought)

Yeah that makes sense on the Dark Rituals I suppose. Keep in mind, any input that I have is hypothetical, I haven't actually played the deck myself. Still, I can't help but feel like having the option to just go balls-out with a turn 1 dreadnought seems too good to pass up. Not saying I'm definitely right, it's just a feeling. Besides, like I said, you don't have to just go for a ritual into an orb into a dreadnought every time. Going ritual into thoughtseize and hymn is another line, and is guaranteed to not million-for-one yourself.

Also, another argument for adding more fetches and possibly bauble that I realized after posting my comment: more fetches means more ways to trigger revolt on your fatal pushes.... Not that there are a ton of 3-4 mana creatures to worry about in the format, but still, having more options is always a good thing.

As far as sideboarding, this is a deck where I think slamming 4 Leylines would be best. Tormod's Crypt and Spellbomb don't actually STOP reanimator or dredge, they just slow them down a couple turns. Leylines stop them dead in their tracks. Also, it's extremely easy to board things out in those matchups to make room for 4 leylines. Especially push, which is underwhelming in both matchups. Decay can at least get a Animate Dead or something. Leylines also get a little better if you decide to add ritual since it becomes a little easier to cast if you end up drawing them.

I think the rest of the sideboard completely depends on the meta you're playing in. Green and Black give you a lot of options. Maelstrom Pulse is a good catch-all. Engineered Plague, Perish, Toxic Deluge, etc all seem good in a creature-heavy meta. Random things like Pithing Needle are probably good. Choke is savage against blue decks. Golgari Charm Is pretty versatile, as it can save all of your dudes, get rid of an opponent's problem permanent, or even kill all their little guys. Extra targetted hand disruption could be good. There's no shame in playing straight-up Duress, since you're probably not scared of their creatures anyway. Everyone's so hesitant to give duress any love because it looks like a budget option, but it's actually incredible most of the time. If you end up shaving any pushes/decays from the main, I'd probably put whatever you shaved into the side.

Not sure how helpful all that that actually is, but hopefully it at least gave you some ideas.

SteelSentry on Most Flavorful Phyrexian Cards?

1 month ago

Life's Finale, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Black Sun's Zenith are all good board wipes, the first one especially if you intend to run reanimation effects (like Reanimate or Phyrexian Delver, two other flavor cards). Engineered Plague is good if tribal is big in your meta, and Reprocess isn't bad either. Less played options that can be okay are Phyrexian Infiltrator and Phyrexian Etchings. Phyrexian Metamorph is an all-around good card. Phyrexian Totem is, frankly, a bad mana rock, but hey, it's Phyrexian. Torpor Orb is also Phyrexian, but I would not add it if it hoses you. Soul of New Phyrexia is pretty good in EDH.

berryjon on Pattern Recognition #51 - Morph

Morphs, by definition, have no creature type. The general effects that go with that mean that, no, Conspiracy or Engineered Plague don't work on them. And because the actual Morph effect is on the face down side of the card, Muraganda Petroglyphs does work with them.

LVL_666 on Stupid Selenia Suicide

"Absolute garbage deck with little to no chance of winning" - well not with that attitude! I kid, but in all seriousness, it sounds like you're having a tough time with your deck. I guess it'd be safe to assume you ha ve no reliable wincons. So, we have two options here - you switch commanders, or try and figure out something what can enable you to win. I'll give you my thoughts on each option:

Switching commanders: So, you have a commander that's an angel. To my surprise, she's the only WB angel there is. Go figure. So every other option is non-angel...but you do have some very interesting choices.

Mind you, I didn't list all of the cards because IMO, these are probably the more popular choices and the most expensive (sorry!). The idea behind choosing a commander is choosing a creature that speaks to you. Something you like about the way they play, what they embody stuff like that. If you have any thoughts regarding any of the previously mentioned cards, let me know and we can try to build a deck that's more centered around it.

Figure out something - so if we stick with Selenia, Dark Angel as our commander I think the most reliable way to get her to win is to voltron her up. Basically, we'd just rely mostly on just her winning us the game. So we would use cards like:

Just to name a few. The idea would be that your commander would be so well equipped that she'd be nigh impossible to deal with for hte rest of the table. Additionally, you'd have to have a means of protecting yourself. Cards like:

Just to name a few. But the idea is that you build up a defense while your opponents have to deal with your commander who will stand vigil in front of the wall you build. As you constantly equip and build her up, she becomes a legitmate threat on the board. Of course, there are other creatures that are better suited to this strategy, but given what she has this is the best I can come up with. I'm sure there are smarter people out there that would have better ideas though. Don't give up!

Colgate on UW Spirits for FNM with ...

Seems like your meta doesn't play Force of Will so I would suggest some fast combo deck. For example storm.

Rituals 18
4 Rite of Flame
3 Seething Song
4 Dark Ritual
3Cabal Ritual
4 Helm of Awakening

Cantrips 16
4 Gitaxian Probe
4 Manamorphose
4 Chromatic Sphere
4 Chromatic Star

Payoff 8
4 Dark Petition
1 Ad Nauseam
1 Tendrils of Agony
1 Past in Flames
1 Empty the Warrens

Lands 18
4 Blackcleave Cliffs
4 Gemstone Mine
6 Swamp
4 Mountain

Side 15
4 Engineered Plague
4 Mindbreak Trap
4 Chancellor of the Annex
3 Cabal Therapy

This might fit your budget, check it out from MCM. It's combo rather than control or midrange. Making midrange or control deck takes little more time to brew and I might post it later. One more question; are storm decks mainly ANT or TES in your meta?
