Gnaw to the Bone Discussion

Chill_Casual on Check out Guitar George! (Sultai's of Swing)

Sick deck man! Definitely deserving of the +1. If you wanted to turn up the heat on the self-mill, I highly recommend adding Tunnel Vision to the mix. It acts like a pseudo-tutor and aggressive Self-mill, all wrapped into one. Some cards that would go great with a Tunnel Vision would be, Psychic Spiral, Spelltwine, Spider Spawning, Gnaw to the Bone, Twilight's Call, Grim Flowering, Songs of the Damned and Living Death. Although these combinations would either require a lot of mana or multiple turns, the payout could very well be victory. The only catch is, playing these combinations are not subtle, so timing is everything.

Some suggestions

Hope that helps.

Errast on Cards like Congregate

Most Green/Black cards like Congregate deal with creatures in the graveyard rather than on the field, but I'll list them here just in case you're interested.

Of course I'll probably remember another one as soon as I post this, but these are all I have right now.

Wow, can't believe I forgot to +1! Anyway if you haven't looked at my budget Jarad deck in a while, check it out. I took out the Devoted Druid combo since prices went up and added a bunch of new stuff. A combo I'm not using but is awesome is Hermit Druid with no basics to mill your whole library, Praetor's Council to pick up your whole library, Skirge Familiar to get a ton of mana, and then Death Cloud to nuke everyone. After a Gnaw to the Bone before you Praetor's Council of course. :)

I am really fond of this original take on Living End. Great job! Smart use of Gnaw to the Bone too!

I was thinking that if you were willing to splash white instead of black, you could replace some of your cards as following: Fatal Push--> Path to Exile ; Drake Haven (In my playtests, i never used it. I would rather pay an extra cycling cost to dig for As Foretold as fast as i can) --> Wall of Omens or Angelsong (i suppose the idea behind the drakes is to chump block, so these 2 cards accomplish the objective of stalling and drawing) and maybe add Idyllic Tutor to tutor for As Foretold

Other cards that come to mind (but haven't analyzed seriously): Constricting Tendrils, Delay, Wheel of Fate, Remand (these 2 give you more card draw :) ) and Restore Balance.

Taking the input I've gotten here and my current collection into account I jave 13 or 15 cards set aside for sideboard options.

Ancient Grudgex2Naturalizex2Pyroclasmx2Gnaw to the Bonex2Obstinate Balothx1Sowing Saltx1 (just what I have, otherwise would be Crumble to Dust )Tormod's Cryptx1Pithing Needlex1Crucible of Worldsx1 (this is has been suggested main but I want to test it, especially with Ghost Quarter )

If I could I wpuld get another needle and baloth for the last two slots... thoughts?

That's the matxh up I was kinda thinking of but maybe I should just stick with more artifact hate for that one.

I have a single Obstinate Baloth I was thinking would be good for 8rack and burn... with Gnaw to the Bone for burn as well I was looking at other things that punish hand disruption... would Guerrilla Tactics sound good or too clunky?
