Hero's Downfall Discussion

For Black you have:
Bile Blight is king vs token decks, Drown in Sorrow will hit your creatures too but also very strong and Despise and Thoughtseize are very good early game as you can remove early the opponents major threats as well as see his hand. Despise is more used nowadays.For straight up removal, Hero's Downfall , Murderous Cut and Silence the Believers are all very strong cards

White has the powerful exiles: Banishing Light , Suspension Field , Chained to the Rocks although it doesn't work for this deck. Utter End is a powerful B/W card and take a look at Gods Willing . Cards like Erase can also be very good vs white decks that exile a lot of your stuff.

Daorien on Mid Game is MY Game

Yeah as you said, my deck ( Grixis control ) is very similar to yours

I would go like this:

-1 Keranos, God of Storms
-1 Mogis, God of Slaughter

+1 Hero's Downfall or Silence the Believers
+1 Prognostic Sphinx

As for sideboard
-2 Circle of Flame
+2 Anger of the Gods

Also I'm not really sure about jace, he's not providing any card advantage and bounce for 4 mana is just bad. I would much rather play some kind of board reset instead of him like AEtherspouts or Perilous Vault . In your case I would go for aetherspouts, because you don't want your permanents exiled

Cyrk on Draw-Go Grixis Khans Control

@Jedne2 Here is an example of a successful control deck:

UB Control

Hero's Downfall is not so narrow as only addressing creatures. Control decks normally feature planeswalkers as wincons or disruption. So that leaves 7. I agree with you on 5 of them. However, Silence the Believers is another way to remove another control player's wincon or gets rid of pesky things like Ashcloud Phoenix . If they counter it, that's one less counterspell you need to worry about. You do make a good point with more burn though. Could keep you out of the draw bracket at an event.

@Jedne2 I don't see how it doesn't fare well versus control. Anti-Control cards include:

Thoughtseize , Mindswipe , Dissolve , Disdainful Stroke , Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker , Keranos, God of Storms , Lightning Strike , Hero's Downfall . The matchup gets even better post-board with 4x Negate , 4x Stain the Mind .

There are 5 cards that are not great versus control, but I put them in to be well-rounded. Drown in Sorrow , and Bile Blight . They're both excellent if an Elspeth resolves though.

@ EvilKidsMeal You are already running 3 Drown in Sorrow main. You're not going to get hit for a million damage turns 1 and 2. Nullify is a pretty decent option all game as well. A lot of the pros are using it or considering it. The good thing about Silence the Believers is it is an easy transition from Hero's Downfall mana. It gets rid of nightmarish stuff like Ashcloud Phoenix as well.

EvilKidsMeal on Icy blast as early game ...

4 hours ago

Alright so im making this deck JACE, THE LIVING GUILDPACT DOES NOT SUCK!

and i ran into a problem, i was suggested by someone Silence the Believers over Icy Blast in a black blue control, and it got me thinking.... is icy blast worth the turn two, ''Tap that aggro creature so it doesnt kill me'' kinda thing or not. wasnt sure, can you take a look and tell me if if Icy Blast is worth it? Since Silence the Believers costs 4 mana, and i already have to wait till i get three to start using counter spells or removal like Hero's Downfall , so im on the fence about this, help me haha

Well, I'm a bit interested in 1x Surrak Dragonclaw , 1x Banishing Light , 3x Sylvan Caryatid , and 2x Wooded Foothills . Would you be willing to trade those for 2x Sorin, Solemn Visitor , 2x Hero's Downfall , and 1x Rakshasa Deathdealer ? If not do you have any modern cards that aren't in your trade binder? I'm trying to put together my first modern deck d: Thanks for messaging back!

Ok I added 3 Herald of Torment , cut it to two Bile Blight and since I only have 3 Hero's Downfall at the moment I'll just cut one Murderous Cut . I'm running 3 Whip of Erebos because everybody always kills the first one and getting a second one out as soon as possible wins games. I'll test a few games with Ruthless Ripper instead of the bat. I had the bat because originally I was bestowing Nighthowler onto it. All the delve in the format makes it inconsistent so I took it out and put Squelching Leeches in .
