Eternal of Harsh Truths Discussion

SlyBlu7 on Draft League N00B, HELP!

2 days ago

Hey guys - just entered a draft league. They let us pick up 4 packs to start (2 ANK, 2 HOU) and build 30 card decks from there. I think I got the short end of the pulls. Especially when I look at the awesome (frustratingly so) pulls that my GF got, who is even more of a newbie to the game. Anyway, this is what I put together:

Creatures Frilled Sandwalla , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Naga Vitalist, Dune Beetle , Wretched Camel, Ruin Rat, Bitterblade Warrior , Sidewinder Naga , Ornery Kudu , Giant Spider , Bitterbow Sharpshooters

Spells Compelling Argument, Gift of Strength , Synchronized Strike , Splendid Agony, Cartouche of Ambition, Torment of Venom

Artifacts Traveler's Amulet, Bontu's Monument, Oketra's Monument

Land Ipnu Rivulet, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes,1Island, 4Forest, 2Swamp

The idea that I had was to go BG for tossing -1/-1 with Vizier, and having some creatures and pumps. Splashed U for milling.

What else did I pull? Garbage, I think. White was especially thin, which is sad because it's one of my favorite colors.

White Mighty Leap , Oketra's Avenger , Forsake the Worldly , Dauntless Aven , Sandblast

Blue Strategic Planning, Spellweaver Eternal, Labyrinth Guardian , Ancient Crab , Eternal of Harsh Truths, Tragic Lesson, Illusory Wrappings , Shimmerscale Drake , Striped Riverwinder, Open Into Wonder

Black Liliana's Defeat, Shadow of the Grave, Doomfall, Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Red Crash Through, Pathmaker Initiate, Nef-Crop Entangler , Blur of Blades, Open Fire, Pursue Glory , Manticore Eternal , Hazoret's Undying Fury, Desert Cerodon

Aftermath Onward / Victory

Land Sunscorched Desert, Shefet Dunes

Now, my list of cards is recorded at the store, so I can change the deck but obviously cannot add any cards from elsewhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have featured Red in the deck, maybe just cut my losses and went RG to keep it simple. Can anyone help me out? It's fairly casual, but I don't really want to get my head caved in for the next two months of MtG.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I would go down one Ammit Eternal and one Eternal of Harsh Truths for the pouncers. Maybe 2 Eternal of Harsh Truths. The card draw is nice but being able to block and kill every other eternalize creature in the format is better.

TheBoyless: Adorned Pouncer is a good thought, and the addition to the deck seems solid, however I may have to think about adding it to be sideboarded in, instead of mainboard. I am going to make one switch, when they get here/I acquire them:

+4 Eternal of Harsh Truths

-1 Glint-Nest Crane, -1 Nissa's Renewal, -2 Hieroglyphic Illumination

The reason? It makes more of a "prisoner's dilemma", especially when it comes out of the graveyard. It is either 4 damage or 2 damage and a card drawn. That is a bad choice to have to make your opponent make. That is why I think the card is a great addition to the deck.

Can I say I love the Afflict mechanic?

When Bolas has the tables turned is my deck I am working with. I am going to put in some Eternal of Harsh Truths for 1 Cloudblazer, 1 Glint-Nest Crane, and the 2 Hieroglyphic Illuminations. The reason is that card is a beast to begin with, giving them even more of a prisoner's dilemma and makes it even worse when it comes back as a 4/4 zombie.

Here's a list of cards that I thought I'd try, but they don't line up as well as I'd like to my deck's goal.

If anyone thinks any of these will be better in either board please speak up! Love you all

If you're centreing your deck on the scarab god your going to want sone control and ways to find him. Supreme Will is great because it acts as both. I'd recommend something like Winds of Rebuke because it protects you from a threat as well as getting you cards in both graveyards for the scarab god to use. Anticipate and Naga Oracle could also help you find your scarab god, (but I would sideboard them).

I would suggest taking out Diregraf Captain and Dimir Guildgate because they aren't standard legal. If you want a casual deck that's fine but it's very easy to replace these with better cards like Liliana's Mastery and Fetid Pools.

Finally your deck won't end up being cheap. Because the scarab god and your black removal aren't very cheap cards. However if your looking for some good zombies I suggest Eternal of Harsh Truths instead of Proven Combatant. Since you will be eternalising with the scarab god rather than proven combatant's ability, something that starts as a zombie is quite good.

Hello again TheBooman! sorry i write until now, but i been very busy lately. First of all i want to know what is your main idea, i mean, it is about token generator or control, or some other feature in the deck? So we can make an Scarab-God worth deck ;)

At first glance, what i see is that you need to gain more time, maybe some Disallow or another counter could become handy. I don't know if Lord of the Accursed fits at all in this deck, i mean, he's so good (i will not contradict that) BUT, i guess you need more zombies in number rather than their size, in this case i recommend 4 Liliana's Mastery instead of just two of them. I think Ammit Eternal definetly is worth of trying out instead of Eternal of Harsh Truths he does more damage and punishes more for being defended.
