Hero's Downfall Discussion

Epochalyptik on brain maggot and hero's downfall, ...

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

3x Abrupt Decay
4x Corrupt
2x Dreadbore
4x Hero's Downfall
2x Mizzium Mortars
4x Thoughtseize
19 Other Spells

4x Courser of Kruphix
3x Scavenging Ooze
4x Sylvan Caryatid
11 Creatures

1x Chandra, Pyromaster
2x Vraska the Unseen
3x Xenagos, The Reveler
6 Planeswalkers

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.

Gorgosaurusrex on Grixis Jankifacts

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.

jvla24: I do like the idea of Phyrexian Revoker mainboard. Thoughtseize would be an interesting sideboard card but I don't have any at the moment.

I like Hero's Downfall but I can't reliably get double black on turn 3. That's why I'm sticking to Dreadbore .

Liliana Vess and Mogis, God of Slaughter don't really do enough for this deck to justify their high mana cost, imo. Thanks for the suggestions! Price
