Groundswell Discussion

anubis1ra1 on Lokotor's Cube

1 week ago

too strong:

Balance

Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis

Pathrazer of Ulamog

Artisan of Kozilek

Lodestone Golem

Daze

Contract from Below (ummm... what?? this is too strong and the ante doesnt exist to balance it)

Hymn to Tourach

Animate Dead

Channel

concerning:

Feather, the Redeemed

Winding Constrictor

Manifold Key

Ulamog's Crusher

Ichorclaw Myr (colorless infect)

Myr Galvanizer

Bounding Krasis

Unburial Rites

Mother of Runes

Archetype of Courage

Village Bell-Ringer

Sun Titan (probably fine)

Porcelain Legionnaire (cheap first strike, hard to kill in reasonable time without using removal spell on a 2 drop)

Battle Screech (or Lingering Souls/Spectral Procession) too many of this effect (too many flying tokens I think)

Winds of Abandon game ending 1 sided wrath (probably just too strong)

Mana Tithe fine card, but not sure why white has counter spells

Peregrine Drake probably fine, but just worth watching for overly easy infinites

Etherium Sculptor potentially too many artifact synergy cards like this in the cube (artifacts might be one of the most well supported archetypes)

Brain Freeze (not really supported?)

Snap again potential infinite mana

Exhume

Tainted Strike/Phyresis Infect is potentially too strong

Feldon of the Third Path potentially degenerate?

Flameshadow Conjuring (goes infinite with multiple creatures with an iron myr)

Golgari Grave-Troll maybe fine

Sprout Swarm (I've seen this card be silly, but its probably fine)

Groundswell/Scale Up (with infect)

Red_X on Brother, That Looks... Infected

I'm going to echo the recommendation for Scale Up, and I'd cut the baubles for them. Git probe was mainly good in infect because it gave you perfect information for when to go off, which bauble doesn't do, and drawing bauble on the turn when you just need 2 more damage hurts. I'd probably cut 2 Become Immense, since I haven't seen anyone run more than 1 from what I can find, and replace them with extra copies of Blossoming Defense and Groundswell.

Twist35 on Virulent Infection

I think that you should trim the number of your infect creature for some pump spells. Realistically, you probably only need to run a playset of Glistener Elf and Blighted Agent with maybe 1 or 2 Ichorclaw Myr. Your deck wants to kill as fast as possible, so pretty much every infect creature you draw after you have played one is a dead draw. I would recommend adding a lot more pump spells, such as Giant Growth, Groundswell, and Might of Old Krosa. If you really wanted to keep your budget as low as possible, you could go mono green, making your mana base a lot better, and helping you cast thing like Vines of Vastwood. Hope I could be of help!

Hynx on Simic can't be blocked!

do you have problems with removal? id suggest Apostle's Blessing if you do. or Vines of Vastwood. if you decided on an infect tweak, Inkmoth Nexus Blighted Agent with Invigorate is beautiful. giving your opponent life means nothing if you are going for the 10 poison counter win. Im also a fan of Groundswell for the landfall trigger.

Whirlwind_2100 on Ghave's army of counters

6 months ago

Overall a solid deck, but there are some cards im not sure why you added

  1. Vampire Nighthawk
  2. Abzan Runemark
  3. Siege Rhino
  4. Ravenous Chupacabra
  5. Blisterpod
  6. Wreath of Geists
  7. Groundswell

These were some cards that either were just bad, or didn't contribute to the game plan of the deck in a meaningful way, such as Vampire Nighthawk .
