Faith of the Devoted Discussion

Korombos on Jund Discard AKH

You've put together quite a discard engine. You might consider some lower cmc cards to take advantage of it (rather than Archfiend of Ifnir ) Ruthless Sniper can get in there early and make sure your opponent is low on creatures. Faith of the Devoted might have a place as well.

Sorry for taking so long to respond to your comments, I've been especially busy recently.


Not really. Vs control, you have Faith of the Devoted post SB, which can win games by t6-7 as well, which you easily have time for.


Thanks haha! My friend sent me the link, and from there I know that I've peaked.


Yep, the deck is pretty strong imo.


You only really need like 2 or 3 lands off of of your Shefets for them to be good, as you don't really need that much mana, you really just need an extra mana or two to kickstart the combo, as sometimes a single Vizier of Tumbling Sands isn't enough to cast your first Shadow of the Grave.

Bloodrage Brawler might go in if I go more discard. Take out Faith of the Devoted run bloodline and haven. Add more removal in the way of Fiery Temper

i've been testing around with a deck that runs Cathartic Reunion to get through my deck faster, and comparing it with tormenting voice, cathartic is generally better. more triggers on all your discarding things, and seeing more cards faster.

is Faith of the Devoted really so important for this deck? i've been thinking something like Bloodrage Brawler might be better, if you're already using drake haven for discard triggers. maybe cut faith of the devoted, and go 3x bloodrage, and 3x drake haven?

SorcerersBone on Deck Idea: Building around Faith ...

2 days ago

I've been toying with the idea of building around Faith of the Devoted as the focus of a deck instead of Drake Haven. I admit it's a good card, but my inner Johnny would rather use Faith.

It would probably be Red/Black and run my favorite cards with madness, Alms of the Vein + Fiery Temper as well as Lightning Axe removal. What should I run this as?

It'll definitely depend on my LGS's meta, but I'd like a second opinion on what seems stronger now that Copycat is gone.

MadMadison on Discard Your Faith At The Door

dizzycriminal Unfortunately Shadow of the Grave won't work with any Madness cards, as they get discarded into exile, but it should work with Faith of the Devoted as it only specifies you have to discard the card, it doesn't matter where it goes afterwards. You discard it, that effect goes on the stack, you pay the 1 colourless mana for Faith of the Devoted, then you pay the madness cost for the card being discarded and cast it. That being said, you'll have to look at the specific rules for Faith of the Devoted when they get released.

Archfiend of Ifnir would definitely be good for those long game match-ups or against slower decks. Herald of Anguish might also be one to consider if you're up against any tempo or control decks. Noxious Gearhulk is never a bad include, particularly if you find yourself low on life towards the late game (although your deck has a decent amount of lifegain so you should be fine).

I really like the idea of Bloodhall Priest if you have other ways to draw cards after she attacks, which you've already included so that's not an issue.

I don't think Shadow of the Grave or Faith of the Devoted works with cards you have cast with Madness.

Furyblade Vampire is probably going to be better than the Dragoon, the new Bloodrage Ravager is good if you want to be hellbent ready for Hazoret.Another card that likes a thin hand is Bloodhall Priest and you can madness her out.

Archfiend of Ifnir could be good in a long game too.

Cut (hah) Cut / Ribbons, start playing more Fiery Temper. Drop 1 or 2 Curator of Mysteries and drop Faith of the Devoted, and start playing Hazoret the Fervent and Bloodrage Brawler.
