Hunted Witness Discussion
2 days ago
Welcome to Tapped Out!
- I'm assuming you're trying to avoid the white weenie style of play here?
- Are you fine with it price wise?
- Do you want to make it more affordable?
You need more lands, you're sitting at 21 with a 3+ converted mana cost meaning you'd need 5 more lands to have a more consistent land draw. Or you could invest in some smaller spells to bring down your average to so don't need as many lands. I'd suggest adding a few other creatures at least, to have some sort of board presence outside of just Demotions and Seal Aways. Adanto Vanguard, Dauntless Bodyguard, Hunted Witness and Healer's Hawk are some options to think about, especially the Adanto Vanguard and Dauntless Bodyguard can keep some creatures on the battlefield when you drop a Cleansing Nova. The Immortal Sun or Sorcerous Spyglass will give you better protection against planeswalkers if you don't have a Conclave Tribunal or Ixalan's Binding in hand.

As much as I would love Voice of Resurgence, Sunpetal Grove, that would set my deck to like 60$ more, which I can't exactly afford. I should probably specify in the deck that the cost needs to cap out at about 40$. Ill switch out that Wake the Reflections, and put in the Hunted Witness, that is a good idea.

This deck 100% wants Voice of Resurgence, to survive through sweepers. These should absolutely replace Call of the Conclave Also I feel like the new Trostani Discordant would be better than OG Trostani. And I understand that the lands are budget, but at least some Sunpetal Grove would make for much more consistent mana. Also in this deck your one-mana populate sorcery will usually be making just another 1/1, a repeatable effect like Growing Ranks might be more effective. You might even consider Hunted Witness since this deck is so weak to board-wipes. Also I wonder if you want some amount of Nissa, Voice of Zendikar to build bigger tokens.

First off, thanks. Weird things happen to me early in the morning. I take my wackiness VERY seriously. That said, cant quite tell if you mean Good Outrageous or Bad Outrageous.
Then, your suggestions.
March is out of the question. The absolute budget limit is 100 bucks. I'm actually thinking about cutting the first one to make room for stuff that works better in the deck.
Sap migration is good with the number of convoke cards in this. That said, it underperforms compared to Hunted Witness in the face of the many sweeper Heavy decks that would ruin this deck's day. I'm willing to test both ways though.
The greatworm is a personal touch, as this deck is built to put out massive amounts of tokens that crew stuff and convoke stuff. Makes a pretty great finisher, consider many autoscoop to it. And it's really not that hard to do.

first of all, this is the most outrageous idea i've seen this set, and i built a mill deck.
I think the Worldsoul Colossus doesn't fit too well in the deck, seeing that you want to spread out your power to optimize crewing.I believe swapping them out for more March of the Multitudes is correct.
Also i like the great worm, very ambitious, its gotta be sweet to get one of those out

I'm still trying to find a good balance. I know people will recommend Lingering Souls but I'm not a huge fan of the mana investment, I've decided instead to use a playset of Hunted Witness because I am primarily focusing on Rally the Ancestors to close out games.
I'm not sure how much I like Stitcher's Supplier, it's kind of going all-in on the Rally plan and I'm not sure if I should be relying on Rally that much. Also not sure if 4 Rallies are necessary.
Also need help with the sideboard. Some control matchups and lifegain decks can give me a lot of trouble. What cards should I be using for these matchups?

ooh, I always love me an aristocrats deck. I know it is budget but I've got some suggestions (within budget) that can help improve this deck.
I used to play an aristocrats deck with Return to the Ranks. It was pretty medium. What I found out was, you will end up killing your op in one big turn where you sac everything and bring it back and sac again. It was never a little at a time because if I did it slowly, they would just remove the key pieces or win before I had a chance to bleed them out.
So with that in mind, here are my suggestions: recursive cards like Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton are good for grinding, but not for explosive turns. What is best for that is cards like Doomed Traveler (which you have) and Hunted Witness (which you need). The reason they are explosive is because, without needing extra mana, they double each sacrifice. So with two Blood Artist effects in play and a recursion card you only need 2 dorks and a sac outlet (albeit that is 5 cards) to deal 19 dmg.
The other thing is, looking at your curve, you have way too many 2 drops. This was also a problem that I faced when I played the deck, it means that on turns 1 and 3, you often get stuck with extra mana laying around. Here is what I would suggest: replace Go for the Throat with Tragic Slip and replace Bloodthrone Vampire with Viscera Seer. That way you shift the cost towards 1 drops and can get cards out there faster.
The last thing, which I did not figure out, was card velocity. I could never get enough cards out fast enough. Many people suggested Collected Company but I wasnt about to pay 4 mana for two 1/1s. Others suggested ways to dump cards into my graveyard like Satyr Wayfinder and the like. But this exposed my deck even more to graveyard hate. Either way, all of this requires green which you don't have. So if you find yourself running out of card velocity, maybe try Night's Whisper or Read the Bones or a similar effect to that.
Hopefully my ramblings help. Let me know if you have any questions, and if you like my suggestions: check out my podcast all about brewing decks at mtgcoldbrew.buzzsprout.com (we're also on itunes and spotify)
P.S. cut those tap lands, you dont need the life gain and they will just slow you down.

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.
Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!
