Hero's Demise Discussion

maff98 on Xantcha Combo-Control

mmcgeach sorry to bother you again, but you said that in your playgroup there is a Gitrog player and, because of its size, I'd assume that it would be hard to deal with it without comboing off.

With that said, would you consider any of the following spot removal cards? Dark Betrayal | Hero's Demise | Terminate

I'd also like to hear your thoughts on Smelt .

Thank you in advance!

Ryjo on Is there a “reverse” Terror?

Some of the 2 CMC or less black instants that allow you to destroy black creatures include: Devour in Shadow, Disembowel, Fatal Blow, Fatal Push, Feast of Dreams, Gang Up, Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, Human Frailty, Killing Glare, Smother, Soul Rend, Ultimate Price, and Victim of Night.

Some of the 2 CMC or less black sorceries that allow you to destroy black creatures include: Bone Splinters, Death Stroke, Defeat, Do or Die, Feast of Blood, Imperial Edict, Liliana's Defeat, Murderous Compulsion, Reave Soul, Severed Strands, Soul Reap, Walk the Plank, and Wretched Banquet.

You probably want more instant speed removal to deal with Voltron creatures, as well as non-targeted removal. You can try Curtains' Call, Dismember, Doom Blade, Geth's Verdict, Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, Hero's Downfall, Malicious Affliction, Murderous Cut, Reckless Spite, Slaughter Pact, Snuff Out, Terror, Ultimate Price, Victim of Night, and Vona's Hunger. Attrition is also good if you have Zombies to sacrifice. Glaring Spotlight and Arcane Lighthouse are useful for dealing with hexproof and shroud.

Solid build, ever consider Devour in Shadow over Hero's Demise?

I had one EDH game with Hero's Demise on it. That was pretty funny.

TheFlamingBush on Is my Undying Sacrifice deck ...

2 years ago

So the deck I'd be running is my Lilly - Undying Sacrifice it's a mono-black "control"? focusing on zombies/vampires easy creature disposals and uses the HOU liliana's +1 to summon a 2/2 zombie token.

I have some deathtouch & lifelink vampires (Gifted Aetherborn & Vampire Nighthawk) to help with creature control & staying alive.

An AKH expansion enchantment combno using Trial of Ambition & Cartouche of Ambition, which forces opponent to sacrifice creatures over and over, for as long as the enchantments have not been destroyed.

A few instants for removal:

Doom Blade

Fatal Push

Go for the Throat


and Hero's Demise (in my sideboard)

Any criticism is greatly appreciated.
