High Priest of Penance Discussion

Honestly you could probably get away with dropping the Plains, I would add a few Temple of Silence's and a few more Ghost Quarter's. Maybe 1 more Shambling Vent. Sideboard I would add more Gifts and maybe some High Priest of Penance.

Orzhov Charm Could work quite well in here, as well as Proclamation of Rebirth.

Other than that it looks good, +1 from me.

SliverKing90 im trying to replace a creature for a creature, I know its faults, but it could be helpful. your right that no one would attack it or block it. but that's not necessarily a bad thing, if you put Edge of the Divinity on it or have Deathbringer Liege out High Priest of Penance would do some decent damage when attacking, which might just have the opponent waist a kill spell on it of simply block it.

Piglord98 a necrotic sliver replacement should not be another creature that tries to function as removal. they're even slower than normal sorceries. you have to either attack with High Priest of Penance and hope the opponent blocks (which they obviously won't) or save it as a blocker and hope your opponent attacks (which they also won't do). or you have to use yet another card to damage High Priest of Penance yourself.

I've been thinking about making a deck with this guy. It's that I already have a deck in these colours, otherwise I probably would have gone for it. He's cool.

You could try adding some things which put it clearly out there that if things are attacking you, they are dying.. Thinking Dread or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Or just something like High Priest of Penance. Brutal Hordechief is also a very good offensive tool, but really good politically as well, considering you can force your opponents into a bad block, so persuading other opponents to attack them should be easier.

Also, note that Bounty Hunter does not help Mathas get the counters out there. Since the effect Mathas' bounty counters have are tied to his specific ability, the creatures only gain that effect if Mathas gives them the counter. If the counter should be removed, it can be re-added by a Bounty Hunter to trigger the effect, but putting a Bounty counter on a creature with Bounty Hunter while having Mathas on the field will not give you the draw effect.Of course, you can still use him to kill the creatures tagged by Mathas. If that's your intention, never mind my comments.

nickiru on modern Card/combo hunt: permanent removal

3 months ago

I am looking for low cmc permanent removal; permanent removal meaning more than just artifact or creature but everything like High Priest of Penance & Phyrexian Obliterator. Only permanents and strongly prefer creatures. <= 5 cost. Strongly prefer <= 2 cmc. Curse of the Cabal is ok....

I ask cause people are more knowledgeable then a person. -

No. My lands only tap for colored mana for humans. High Priest of Penance seems good.
