TheSimikBOat on A Chromantiflayer Named Zetalpa

3 months ago

I saw that other decks played Questing Beast, but I played Hazoret instead for the indestructible. I don't think that Cathartic Reunion is great here, because to discard cards the deck already has Lotleth Troll, wich is better, since it can pressure a lot the opponent; and for the card draw you can play cards like Grisly Salvage, since the filtering is better that normal card draw to search for Soulflayer. I saw recent Soulflayer decklists and that are the changes that I would make to the deck:

Out:

In:

The main change is that you cut all the "blind" mill cards, and you change it for the cards that let you take at least a creature from these cards to prevent milling a Soulflayer.

I hope this helped you! :)

Prospekt on Sultai Self-Mill

Okay so here's a bunch of suggestions that fit Gyruda's requirement and then some things to then take out.

Put in: Arcane Signet, Wake the Dead, Gravespawn Sovereign, Embalmer's Tools, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Disciple of Bolas, Forgotten Creation, Notion Thief, Oversold Cemetery, Skull Prophet, Clever Impersonator, Garruk Relentless  Flip, The Cauldron of Eternity, Sire of Stagnation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. The cards in your maybeboard seem good too.

Take out: Cranial Archive, Enhanced Surveillance, Devious Cover-Up, Gather the Pack, Migratory Greathorn, Polukranos, Unchained, Shepherd of Rot, Vengeful Dead, Void Beckoner, and all petitioners.

In terms of land, there are a lot of cheap options to include that will make a three color deck a lot better: Choked Estuary, Sunken Hollow, Botanical Sanctum, Blooming Marsh, Fetid Pools, Hissing Quagmire, Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor, Woodland Cemetery, Bad River, Ash Barrens, Dakmor Salvage, Exotic Orchard, Witch's Cottage, and stuff like that. Replace the guildgates and bounce lands and a few basics with those if you can.

And lastly if you want to run the petitioners then you should put more of them in, otherwise having just 8 won't do a whole lot for you most of the time other than for fun.

triproberts12 on Hogaak Persist Combo

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.

Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.

I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.

There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.

Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.

Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

CircioTheStageLighter on Gruul Enchantments. Yes, this a thing now.

Daarkest, I did have Gather the Pack in the original build instead of Scout the Borders, but Scout is more budget friendly, as this is a very janky, casual deck, so I don't wanna make it a $50 deck that only wins on occasion. Really just a fun idea I had when I saw the card spoiled, and I decided I really wanted to make a deck around mass Aura recursion. Thank you tho, and I would definitely recommend upgraded to Gather the Pack if you have the money/cards available, in fact, I have a copy myself and went ahead and swapped it in.

Daarkest on The Recycling Plant [Mono-Green Artifact Combo]

I have mixed feelings on Reclaim . When it's good, its pretty amazing, but when its just mediocre, it feels terrible, and I would rather have a lot of different cards rather than it. Also, I felt like I was drawing wayyyyy too many lands so I cut two of them and added two more Gather the Pack . It's also worth noting that because the opportunity cost of playing Castle Garenbrig is so low that you may want to replace some forests with some copies of it. Just a little extra value.

Dozing on DECIMATOR Dredge [4-0 Local Tournament]

7 months ago

Dredge6 Yes, after copter was banned, I took 2 copters out of my main and replaced it with gurmag angler. I also changed 4 Grapple with the Past for 4 Gather the Pack . They both have their pros and cons, where gather is better for explosive starts but is sorcery speed, and grapple is amazing for late game, but only digs 3 cards deep. Field of the dead (the controlling board wipe version) was actually a sort of bad match up so the ban was a slight buff to this deck. The only issue I really see is that this deck is almost entirely proactive and does not interact with what the opponent is doing, with the exception of a few cards that target my graveyard. Scarab god is really bad against this deck because we have so many ways to deny the activations by removing the target into exile, or just bringing it to the battlefield in response.

While in general I agree, secret keeper doesn't go to the yard itself, meaning your delvers come out a turn later and since adventures are sorceries exclusively on the stack you lose some likelihood of reaching spell mastery on Gather the Pack . Jace is absurdly good yes, but at $50 a piece I'm not getting a set in paper any time soon.
