Faithless Looting Discussion

Was looking at your deck some more, and I have a few more ideas, like upping your demon count and a few reanimation spells liiiiike.....

Desecration Demon, Grave Titan, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Reiver Demon, Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Overseer of the Damned

stuff like that...then you could put in reanimation spells like

Animate Dead, Reanimate, Ever After, Whip of Erebos, Sheoldred, Whispering One

stuff like that...you could throw in Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice for card draw/discard

Maybe a zombie sub theme and add in Shepherd of Rot

Fun things like Tree of Perdition, Quietus Spike, Rage Reflection, Ward of Bones, Havoc Festival

If anything definitely add Anger to your deck

or just throw in 30 Shadowborn Apostle haha

If I repeated any cards already in your deck, I apologize. Either was happy building and kick some ace!!

Thanks for the comment, Asmodeo!Agreed. This deck should be or , but I just don't have the cards.

There will be grave-hate in the second game and it will hurt: Noxious Revival, Faithless Looting, Spite of Mogis and Bedlam Reveler. As an answer I've been thinking about sideboarding the deck into a simple burn deck.

I like Forked Bolt over Wild Slash.

Noose Constrictor just doesn't grow enough, but I like Become Immense! It will need fetch lands to really work, though.

I agree that having Laboratory Maniac in play beforehand (or Purphoros, God of the Forge, or a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind) does the trick with the Kindred Discovery combo, but that's just ASKING for removal to kill me. I want an instant I can cast from hand that can terminate the loop, and I want to be able to cast it even when tapped out. This leaves me 3 options: Pyrokinesis, Snapback, or Simian Spirit Guide+Red Elemental Blast. Of those three, I like Snapback because it's also decent as an answer for a Blightsteel Colossus or Protean Hulk or what-have-you, even when I'm tapped out. I got to kill a Kaalia deck with Snapback yesterday, so I'm not unhappy with how it's playing so far haha.
Thanks for your continued thoughts on the deck haha! IN order:

I don't like Leyline of Anticipation much TBH. It's always a "cute" card that doesn't actually give me enough advantage to matter :(

Breath of Fury's combo works as long as at least one player has no flyers (very likely in 4-to-5-player), because I can keep hitting that player with the enchanted Locust while my other Locusts swing at other players.

With regards to Faithless Looting vs recursion, this deck is getting increasingly fast, to the point where I am consistently winning T4 or earlier. In that light, the mana needed for the recursion spells is too high.

With regards to Kozilek, Butcher of Truth vs Hostility - Hostility only works in half of the combos, I'm afraid. It won't let you go infinite with Skullclamp, and it cripples your combo with Kindred Discovery. The biggest effect, however, is that you can't use discarding him as a source of recursion. When I have infinite draw but no win-con left in my deck (which happens a LOT) I can discard Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to functionally put my GY into my hand. Hostility won't let you do that :( Finally, you can't cast Hostility off of Ashnod's Altar and/or Mana Echoes. All in all, I really suggest biting the bullet and buying a copy, I'm afraid. He's pretty central to the deck's strategies.

Curiosity (and by extension, Ophidian Eye) are too situational when I don't have Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind out. I love the idea of pairing them with Purphoros, but he's virtually never a creature :( I only have 17 devotion to red in the entire deck! I am, however, going to put in Mind Over Matter, which does combo with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind ;)

And when you post your more creature-centric build, please link me! I'd love to take a look hahahaha.

DarkEclipse18: Thanks for both suggestions! I was actually planning on putting in Mind Over Matter already haha (hadn't finished the next update lol), and I'll definitely consider Aggravated Assault :) Mind re-clicking that upvote button, though? It didn't seem to have worked the first time.

Okay, so I have a possible card suggestion in regards to the "decking yourself" problem in the form of Words of War or also Words of Wind. Additional problem to this is I'm unable to begin guessing where you would make space for either one in addition to Laboratory Maniac (if you even found it worth it). Truthfully I'm more concerned about finding space for Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery, but the above comments distracted me.

For the way you have your build set up, I'm personally curious how Breath of Fury is able to go infinite the way you describe when you have, as far as I can tell, no way to guarantee that the enchanted creature is getting damage in each time. I might also wonder if, in regards to Faithless Looting in particular, you might not be better off with more spell recursion effects like that of Mystic Retrieval or even Recoup? If nothing else, wouldn't Kozilek be able to be replaced by say Hostility or Guile in regards to the shuffle effect? "Butcher of Wallets" is just as apt a name for Kozilek in this instance.

Lastly, I noticed some people have suggested Curiosity, even though Ophidian Eye is better, to go with your Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, but with Purphorous possibly being a creature at the same time that you have the your commander, he can wield the enchantment/s just as effectively as the dragon (I think). As a side note, cause I got curious and distracted again, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius + Illusionist's Bracers + The Locust God + Phyrexian Altar will win the game/clear the board. That also works if you had Mycosynth Lattice and Ashnod's Altar (or I guess Krark-Clan Ironworks at that point) instead of the bracer's and phyrexian altar.

Btw, I don't have it on the site yet, but I am trying to brew a more casual creature-centric locsut swarming deck. I'd love to get your opinion on it later if you're up to it by (estimated time who knows when).

MartialArt on I Must Stax You a Question

Good to hear that it helped.

How about Lotus Vale? It's cheap on money and produces a lot of mana. I know you have to sacrifice lands for it but it comes into play untapped and interacts well with static orb.

I would definetely add Peacekeeper since once you can stall the game you win with this deck.

I would not run damage reduction. You already go for risk so why not going full risk? You could add Armageddon since it really interacts well with your punisher cards. Or Zuran Orb and Balance. And there was an enchantment that lets you discard lands to deal damage. This would be interesting here.

For card draw I would suggest looting instead. Faithless Looting and the likes let you skip cards till you get to those you want. The time you buy yourself will be your biggest card draw. All you need are the right cards.

I would still suggest to cut the Arbiter and the Amulet and add more things that interact really good with your strategy like this Peacekeeper.

How about AEther Flash to get rid of most small creatures coming into play. If you add 4 Sol Ring as ramp you can play this turn 2. Anger of the Gods helps keeping the board clean.

Btw.. If you like stax take a look at my mardu stax commander if you want. I can always use some suggestions to make it even nastier: Marchesa Stax - bow before me
If you don't have some I gladly take praise as well. X'D

I hope these ideas help. Greets MA.

I wouldn't have played Assemble the Legion because it is too slow. it takes it three turns since it gets to the battlefield to have the same effect of Hordeling Outburst.

Reforge the Soul worth it only with it's miracle cost. a better card in my opinion would be Faithless Looting.

I would also change Goldnight Commander for more Intangible Virtue. I think your wincons should be a lot of ramped tokens or damage from getting them into the battlefield so I would add two more Impact Tremors and maybe even a purphoros or two and take creatures out for more token spells like Spectral Procession and Krenko's Command.
