Brain Maggot 's ability is a triggered ability, When Brain Maggot enters the battlefield, the ability triggers and goes onto the stack. This happens before players get priority; you can't preempt it. You can respond by casting Hero's Downfall , but Brain Maggot 's ability will still resolve afterward. Not that it will really matter; you'll have an empty hand at that point.
My opponent plays Brain Maggot . My hand consists of one card: Hero's Downfall . I know I cannot target the maggot while it is on the stack, as it is not a creature yet, but once it hits the battlefield, do I show my hand, or can I cast Hero's Downfall targeting the Brain Maggot before showing my hand?
You're best bet is to just load up on removal and play Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . An example list of what you could work towards and tweak to your style/budget/meta:
4x Blood Crypt 4x Overgrown Tomb 4x Stomping Ground 2x Swamp 2x Temple of Malice 2x Temple of Abandon 2x Temple of Malady 3x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth ------------------------------------------23 Lands
You could probably cut the red out of the list and just play B/G, swapping out red planeswalkers and spells for Putrefy , additional copies of Abrupt Decay , Doom Blade s, Gaze of Granite , and Duress .
I'd take out your Codex Shredder s and put in an extra Consuming Aberration and Traumatize . Trust me, I used to run mill in this standard environment, and those things are bonkers. I'd also put in some other removal besides Grisly Spectacle ; stuff like Hero's Downfall and Doom Blade . Death's Approach might be sideboard playable.
Akroma I would be on the fence a bit more to be reprinted but I would think it would be fun to be reprinted.Damnation on the other hand I really do believe it will be more than likely. Mono black devotion would lose Mutavault , Desecration Demon , Lifebane Zombie , Pack Rat , Nightveil Specter , and Underworld Connections .
Black will have Thoughtseize , Hero's Downfall , Master of the Feast , Waste Not etc.. and with green running rampant with Chord of Calling and Nissa it'd be very fitting with Black turning into a more control route and with discard. Plus we don't have a Wrath yet :)
I added the mystics because I was slow getting to any protection if I have Elvish Mystic i can turn 2 Courser of Kruphix or Hero's Downfall (assuming I have 2 black, one being overgrown tomb turn 1). The point is that it helps with my early control, for things like aggro decks. I've been play testing the mystics for a little while now and it makes it significantly more likely to sustain with it.
Updated the deck list for the Wednesday night standard event I am attending today. I liked trading post but it is only useful in the slow matches, so I moved it to the sideboard.
I went to 4x Phyrexian Revoker main. This card is such a great hoser against certain decks. I have a weak match up against Monsters, and this will let me shut down their Sylvan Caryatid s and Elvish Mystic s.
