Hymn to Tourach Discussion

JararoNatsu on shadow spirits hand disrupt

1 day ago

You have a really steep mana curve going on here, and I worry that you'll have openings hands flooded with CMC 5+ cards and you won't be able to act.

Replace Cranial Extraction with Surgical Extraction or Extirpate. The extra 3 mana isn't needed to get the job done.

Abyssal Nocturnus, Farbog Revenant, and Highborn Ghoul are all examples of low-CMC creatures that are quite good. Consider dropping some of your CMC 5+ creatures for them.

Other cards to consider are Ordeal of Erebos, Hymn to Tourach, and maybe even Waste Not.

Vasseer on [Primer] Nightmare by Design

First I'd like to say that this is almost certainly one of the best Chainer decks I've seen (though most chainer decks are not very good). Buut... (also, I did read the description for each card before commenting)

Nether Traitor seems quite bad. In general the card is bad, it's body is totally irrelevant and Reassembling Skeleton is basically always better if you're just sacrificing it. There are a few decks that can justify both but you would need a lot more to make it work.

Dictate of Erebos seems fantastic here, pact is great, dictate is often > pact

Mindcrank wtf, maybe I'm missing something but I absolutely cannot figure out why you would want to play this card, it actually just helps your opponents and I can't see any combo with it. I guess it gives you more stuff to chainer, but I would honestly rather play Chimney Imp than this card (Actually Chittering Rats might not be bad). (If you cast exsanguinate for 20 and still need mindcrank to win, you need to rethink your deck)

Library of Leng again wtf, this card has two effects that have both been printed on lands (Reliquary Tower and Nephalia Academy) and don't even seem like effects this deck wants. Why is this here? (Note that with necro you can just discard your creatures and reanimate them with chainer in response to the exile trigger to keep them so it's not even insane there)

Dark Depths I mean if you're already playing stage and map... Hardcasting Marit Lage is a real thing too.

Despise is usually worse than Duress I can see an argument for it over that, but it over Thoughtseize, Mind Twist, or Hymn to Tourach seems strictly incorrect.

Night's Whisper tends to be a bit better than SiB as it can't be misdirected which in my experience comes up more than the life loss.

Sensei's Divining Top given that you already play fetches and with all this tutoring, top seems very good.

Darkness - A black fog existing does not mean you should be playing it, going down a card to gain a bit of life is not a good trade. Hence why mono green decks don't play fog.

Rune-Scarred Demon I guess I could understand not playing this for the same reason as Sheoldred, but Sheoldred is significantly worse than this card..

If you're playing Contamination you are clearly open to no fun allowed options - Infernal Darkness is basically contamination but for the first 5 turns of it being in play the overall cost is lower than maintaining it with chainer activations.

Skullclamp - You're playing a sacrifice deck, but are not playing the best sacrifice deck card ever printed, just blanked or intentional?

This deck is missing the absurdly broken Chainer card that is Laquatus's Champion. Now this card may seem garbo at a glance but it's true power surfaces when you have an altar in play, he becomes a 1 card + lots of mana combo to kill people. Step 1) Chainer him into play. Step 2) Resolve the life loss trigger. Step 3) Sac him, put the life gain trigger on the stack. Step 4) Respond to the trigger by going back to step 1, repeat until the chosen player is dead. It gets even better when you have Exquisite Blood in play and you actually get to not die while doing it! (This combo may be awful, 100% worth testing though, also chainer make Laquatus's Champion so 10/10 flavor)

SacriFace on Mono Black Devotion

Have you considered playing Phyrexian Obliterator for its raw power and high devotion value, and maybee some Hymn to Tourach to drain out your opponents resources. Just from reading the card Vampire Nighthawk seems like a weak card to me. Liliana of the Veil also seems like a strong card in the deck, and i would say Phyrexian Arena is just a stronger version of Underworld Connections. I have no experience playing Black Devotion just small studying cause i wanted to play the deck myself, good luck making the deck and sideboard

Zresk I attend regular DCI sanctioned Pauper events in paper in my local area. Custodi Squire IS available for use in paper, along with many other cards that MTGO players do not have access to. With that being said, there is a bit more to consider with the rules and meta, like addition banned cards like Hymn to Tourach, but not much different.

The debate on how the rules transition from online to paper is one I see a lot of. For paper, since there is no "official" ruling, the rules can vary from one LGS to another. Although, what has become popular within the paper Pauper community is Card Kingdom's "Rags to Riches" series, which has been widely adopted as rules to go by.

I'm looking forward to seeing Pauper expand in paper, it has started to become more popular in my area! Please consider that Chuubii has built this deck with paper in mind. Thanks! (join us on FB: 'RVA Pauper' ;) )

It's not really 8-rack if you are not using The Rack (there are some cheap printings of it but I forget which ones) in the deck. Also Hymn to Tourach is not modern legal, try Wrench Mind instead.

MTGApprentice2016 on The Touch of Bolas deck ...

Waste Not is a great card for a discard deck. They discard something, you get a reward. Hymn to Tourach would be fun with the right copy/recursion spells found in blue and red (and to a lesser extent black). Liliana's Caress and Megrim are a must for any discard deck as well. Even hypnotic spector and its siblings could possibly be a viable creature(s) for the deck.

Drop the Wrench Mind for Hymn to Tourach.

Faerie Miscreant could be useful for card advantage and to have more faeries out.

Oona's Prowler could be a decent beater in the air, 3 power for two mana, unless they want to discard a card, which they probably won't, even if they have cards in hand.

I know you know of Thieving Sprite, but I'll suggest it anyway. Seems a faerie discard deck could use it.

Faerie Tauntings could add some more damage with flash and instants, maybe even add another Funeral Charm to have a playset of instant speed discard.

+1 from me, of course, baby. xoxo
