Heartless Hidetsugu Discussion

RoaringBunny on The most violent Ogre to ever have existed

Love Heartless Hidetsugu , used to have deck built around him myself.

Gamble is pretty affordable nowadays and should definitely be included.

Godo, Bandit Warlord provides a tutor for your lifelink equips.

Thousand-Year Elixir is the most expensive card I will suggest but it provides haste for HH and allows a second use of his ability. Very powerful here.

There are several more damage doubling cards you can include: Overblaze , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence

Inferno Titan , Kamahl, Pit Fighter , and Shivan Gorge let you manipulate the life totals of your opponents. Getting everyone at an even number and turning HH sideways to kill the table feels great.

Finally, not a deck suggestion, but a warning. If you play with the same group of people consistently you may find yourself getting hated out of games pretty early on because of the instant death pressure you present. This was ultimately why I stopped playing and eventually dismantled my HH deck.

Best of luck, hope this was helpful.

I think you could use a few more ramp spells, maybe Talisman of Creativity and Coldsteel Heart and Mana Geyser ?

I think you could also make good use of Brainstorm and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Blue Sun's Zenith and Mystic Remora and Windfall .

I always have trouble cutting cards but some cards I would consider cutting are

Hope this helps!

Quietus Spike only triggers on combat damage; Heartless Hidetsugu ’s activates ability is not combat damage. As such, they neither stack nor are redundant - Quietus Spike is simply never triggered..

If I equipped Heartless Hidetsugu with Quietus Spike and activate heartless hidetsugu’s ability would the effects stack or would it just be redundant?

Other cards you might want consider if you want to stick more to the 'ramp everyone into oblivion' theme is Howling Mine , Ghirapur Orrery , and Horn of Greed . Heartless Hidetsugu might also be neat in that it accelerates everyone's clock very quickly.

More odd and chaotic possibilities could include Fortunate Few and Aminatou, the Fateshifter
