Immortal Coil Discussion
1 day ago
I honestly think that Rust Elemental is the most devestating card in modern to donate becase of how cumulative it is. Bronze Bombshell, 7 damage might not be enough to kill in one go, and you paid a fair amount for seven damage in modern. I tried to make a deck like this work, and maybe Immortal Coil could work.

There used to be, but I had too many effects to make people lose really fast with Demonic Pact, Immortal Coil, Forbidden Crypt, and the Leveler in there I had to take some out. Its a really funny card though and its great with Ramos

great deck, seems like a lot of fun to play, love that you finally found a use for Harmless Offering!
As Immortal Coil is your main win con i'd like to suggest Leyline of the Void even tho it may be a non budged suggestion. It's just a great pay-off since it gives you insta-wins with coil and shuts down graveyard related things like Tarmogoyfs, Snapcaster Mages and stops grixis from delve action, and since you dont have yard interaction it just fits in too well

If you are a combo player, then you might want to consider adding the following cards:
- Leyline of Anticipation allows you to flash in your spells.
- Free Mana Accelerators, such as Mox Opal, Lotus Petal, Simian Spirit Guide, etc.
- Immortal Coil (cannot be used alongside Lotus Petal or Balustrade Spy and any one mana draw spell.
Theoretically, this would allow you to lose the game on the very first upkeep, regardless of who starts.

you might think that Blinkmoth Well isn't very good, but a buddy of mine plays a super dangerous deck that revolves around Bazaar Trader to give you cards like Abyssal Persecutor, Demonic Pact (he uses the good effects then gives it to you), or Immortal Coil before you have anything in your graveyard.

I build something alike (but in Casual). Came here for inspiration and got some :-)
Two Things came to mind:
Relic of Progenitus seems not perfect since it exiles itself and leaves you without a graveyard too. In my experience it is much better to have a graveyard of your own for extra lifepoints with Immortal Coil. The coil can help you stall while waiting for something to donate (for example it can help a little against infect). For that reasons I suggest Nihil Spellbomb in addition to your Tormod's Crypt.
If you play Terminate and Go for the Throat as you said mainly to remove your own Abyssal Persecutor you could switch to something like Greater Gargadon wich also lets you sacrifice your coil if someone Rakdos Charms you when you have the Immortal Coil on your side. Also Greater Gargadon can be good against board wipe, but i don't know much about the Modern-Meta.
I love your Death's Shadow-Idea. It seems very nice with coil if you find a quick way to fill your graveyard and trade life for something good like cards. Phyrexian Arena fits very well to this plan as does Sign in Blood and the like. Maybe something works with Street Wraith and more Fetchlands.

Hi there! I work on a somewhat similar deck (but without enchantment donation) and maybe got some ideas for you:
- Maybe some more Fetchlands so you can't get bolted with Immortal Coil on your side before donating it. Also its pretty good to have some extra life and card draw if you cant get an Trader running or a Harmless Offering.
- Think about Grab the Reins over Mark of Mutiny for its sacrifice possibility
- Something like Phyrexian Tower to sacrifice stolen creatures when your Bazaar Trader got killed again
- Thought about Nihil Spellbomb over Crypt? Costs more mana, but can give you a card

Ya okay I like this! I have something along the same lines but never considered Immortal Coil. I could use that here maybe?...
