Fleshwrither Discussion

Had to be brief before, please allow me to expand. I understand it's a more casual list. I understand you run Animar or Narset when you want to be cruel to others at the table, says it right there in your concise deck description. That's why I recommended Graft (It's not the most OP mechanic for Marchesa, but looks like it would synergize well). Just trying to give "feedback or ideas" as solicited. I really am sorry about the contextual typo, on my part it's unfortunate. As I said, I really like your setup. You have a well tuned and reliable deck list with several cards I'm looking to integrate into my playlists because I like what you're going that much. I plan to cite you if that's alright on my deck upgrades (Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups) once incorporated into my Marchesa deck. Job well done.

I really like your set up. I may have to get myself a Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups. I have a slightly different take on it: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/big-turns-engine/ ... Anywho, Living Death... That's a tough one. You may have to much life gain to ensure you keep getting your dethrone triggers. My knee-jerk response is Kokusho, the Evening Star. It contributes straight damage to all players and gains you life, sweet. However it doesn't have a lot to contribute to swinging... You have a good lineup for turning things sideways and loading up +1/+1 counters (Marton Stromgald, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Ogre Battledriver, and Urabrask the Hidden). Then creatures with those counters matter (Herald of Secret Streams and Oona's Blackguard). It's not that Kokusho isn't good in your lineup. Without Graft or something to help you throw silly amounts of counters on it without Dethrone, you need to swing and Kokusho doesn't do that for you. I can hear you already: "What about Unspeakable Symbol?" The three card combo is nice, but that's what I would do.

Thank you! Scrying Sheets is being tested right now actually and Fleshwrither is looking cool I'll be trying that out! Sunstone is amazing! I never attack with the deck so it gives me that extra buffering from damage if needed

Sunstone in mono black? Awesome! Why no Scrying Sheets? Hits 25% of your list.

Perhaps Fleshwrither?

+1 from me. Good looking pile.

I enjoy the flavor of transfigure... Fleshwrither is the only card that has it so an opponent would never see it as a threat, you wouldn't really bounce my 3/3 for 4cmc because it's not a threat... thanks for all the insight!

Yeah they haven't printed anything that lets you activate any ability at instant speed because it's redundant (since you can activate abilities at instant speed anyway). Things that are done at sorcery speed are done that way for a reason and R&D isn't going to print something with the potential to break the game. AFAIK, the only thing they've printed that does this is Teferi, Temporal Archmage, which lets you activate planeswalkers at instant speed via the ultimate.

I'm more curious about why you chose Fleshwrither over the gajillion other ways to tutor for creatures in Legacy in ways that either put them in play or in your hand? Entomb + Animate Dead, Natural Order, Birthing Pod, Green Sun's Zenith, etc. are all legal in the format. Hell, you even get Worldly Tutor, Sylvan Tutor, and Grim Tutor.

Seems like you're doing a lot of work to search up Avalanche Riders when you have a bunch of other ways to do the same thing.

Is there a card that would allow me to activate Fleshwrither's Transfigure ability on the end of an opponent's turn or in response to an action? I am unsure of any, but am trying to build a gimmick-y deck based on it...
