Flesh to Dust Discussion

Hi there, how about a Mortify as opposed to Flesh to Dust its a cheaper mana cost and can be used for enchantments also.

Your mana curve is high but i dont think its 30 land high. Maybe try 24-26 lands.

That Flesh to Dust is really expensive in my own opinion.Try something like Doom Blade or Ultimate Price for something cheaper.

Instead of Hunt the Weak you could try Epic Confrontation for something cheaper.

And i would switch out Runeclaw Bear with something that has an ability.

Definitely try to condense some of your creatures to 4 of a kind instead of a bunch of singles.

Reave Soul is kinda lame seeing you can replace it with a Doom Blade or Ultimate Price.

The two different set Nightmare and Mind Rot is kinda unnecessary, just put 2 down of one set it doesnt really matter the different sets seeing you are playing modern.

Flesh to Dust is soooooo expensive mana wise when you can get the same results from a 2 drop as stated before.

Rotting Mastodon and Rotted Hulk arent bad seeing their toughness, but they have no abilites, you can put down a bomb card for the same mana that does twice as much.

And you should replace Hand of Silumgar with a cheaper deathtouch such as Typhoid Rats or Pharika's Chosen.

IcyLightning on Sanguine Bond/ Exquisite Blood Deck

I love Sanguine Bond so I'm going to take a crack at helping out this deck.

I'm assuming you're new to Magic and don't have access to a ton of cards, so I'll keep it pretty budget, even though there are a TON of cards that could benefit this deck longterm if you really like it and want to make it competitive, such as Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor like Triton suggested. Also try to establish a format you're playing in. If its casual, that's fine, it just helps out knowing what cards you can work with when building and advising on a deck.

-Unless you're really set on Liliana of the Dark Realms, she doesn't add much to the deck.

  • Also, run 24 lands, maybe 23 if you can consistently get out the Bonds, but they are both 5 cmc, so you're Average CMC cost is high. This means you need the land to be able to play them. You could run some non basic lands such as Ghost Quarter to help thin the deck, or something like Radiant Fountain to give you that much more life, but don't run too many of these. And if budget isn't a concern... well there are ton of pricey lands that could really speed up the deck.

One more note, and that is the Mono Black deck. This deck can really benefit from splashing White. Like really benefit. White has so many options available for lifegain its ridiculous.

You can check out my Vampire tribal Sanguine Bond deck here if you wanted to see something like that:

Blood is Life... And your Death

And there are a lot of other more competitive versions of this deck that could really assist you should you want to up this into higher territory.

Wow I wrote a lot, but Black/White is my favorite color combo and was the first deck I ever made, so it holds a special place to me. Hope that I helped, and don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Hello. Keep in mind that the next standard rotation will occur in 3-4 months (September 2016). So if i were you, i will not try to improve the "Elves way". However here is a nice deck people voted for : We Can Still Build Elves After Hype Faded, Right?

You may think about CHEAP cards like Gilt-Leaf Winnower, Sylvan Messenger, Tajuru Warcaller, Foul-Tongue Shriek and Might of the Masses.

Take care : Flesh to Dust and Flatten are not good enough : change for Ultimate Price or Ruinous Path (to remove big threats).

Try to burst your opponent in first round and wait 2nd round to add those sideboard cards if needed : Natural State, Naturalize and Plummet

In conclusion : you may add cheap "elves" cards at the moment and wait for rotation. In 3-4 months you will have a lot of experience to build a new standard deck that could last 18 months :D

Bovine073 on kalastria highborn vs. blood artist ...

Let's say my Fugitive Wizard dies to a Flesh to Dust. I pay a black mana to pay my highborn ability. Here's a few questions regarding this scenario:

-Is highborn's ability a triggered ability (as opposed to an activated or mana or some other type of ability)?

-Could I (is it possible for me to) play something like a Skullcrack in before highborn (or Blood Artist's) abilities resolve?

-Which would resolve first: Blood Artist's ability or highborn's? (Is there a difference from "dying" and being "put into a graveyard")?

-Can I even say "resolve" here?

Sorry for so many questions, I just had a lot of hypothetical scenarios playing against a vampire deck with these two cards out at the same time, and wanted answers.
