Increasing Ambition Discussion

aeonstoremyliver on Looking for some combo help!

The more tutors, the more consistently you'll be able to find your combo pieces. Rune-Scarred Demon, Liliana Vess, Increasing Ambition, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, along with what you've mentioned, will help you find what you need.

I'd play lots of counter magic to protect your combo pieces, too. Venser, Shaper Savant, Arcane Denial, Overwhelming Denial, etc. are all good choices. Snapcaster Mage and Torrential Gearhulk for added value.

I get your point. My deck itself is consistent. Atleast after my opinion. The discussion was to cut a Increasing Ambition for Chrome Mox and given the Point my deck is consistent thats not really a good looking switch for me. I like the amount of tutors in my deck. Like i said before.

The Point whit Increasing Ambition is one of the weaker tutors is right. I think i change it for Tainted Pact.

But what is a card that helps me not offten and overall dont fit so well in the deck so i can cut it for a fixing ?

A tutor can help ma any time, maybe not as effectiv as drawing my answere, but it will help me.

If you have some good advises to make my deck more consistent they are highly welcomed !

thx for your tipps.

But that is exactly what a tutor does. He says you try to play a specific thing X times in your deck ? Cool use a tutor you play it now X+1 times play two tutors you play it X+2 timees and so on. In a singelten Format a tutor is super strong in nearly any case. It makes you less luck dependend in general.

I see your Point on Increasing Ambition it is to expensive but still a answere to evrything --> Card draw, removal, board swipe, win con, life, burn and so on. Even in a consistent deck you like to have this options in one singel card.

And Highlander itself is a slow Format in the most cases that makes tutors even better.

The Counter point is kinde irrelevant my lucky draw can be countert too most of the times.

I would cut Increasing Ambition for example, because it's a one card tutor for 5 or two card tutor for 8, which is pretty lame imo.

There is Gamble but I'm not too big of a fan of that tutor. Do you run Increasing Ambition?

Price of Knowledge feels like the opposite of what you want to be doing (your probably going to have the largest hand size)

instead how about another tutor like Archmage Ascension, Beseech the Queen, Increasing Ambition, Insidious Dreams, Liliana Vess, Demonic Tutor as an alternative.

Increasing Ambition is simply better than Dark Petition at this point. Fleshwrither doesnt have any options to bring in your deck other than Erebos. Black Market is good and synergizes with your commander. Tree of Perdition too specific and is a creature Sorin way better. If you can, get Pithing Needle as it can shut down some decks and you can name Lethal Vapors effecively dealing with its downside.

Deck is looking good, and you definitely get a +1 from me! I also like the "monoblack" take on this general - at the very least, it significantly cleans up the manabase. A few quick notes, though:

I'm not a fan of Drownyard Temple. Even though the colorless won't harm your manabase here, it's just...meh (mostly because I've found its reanimation ability to be rarely useful). Does it often end up in your graveyard? If you plan to abuse it, I'd add a Dust Bowl (which can be a backbreaking combination).

What's Elixir of Immortality for? Same question applies to Bond of Agony and Sickening Dreams. They seem extremely situational.

I love the use of Birthing Pod here (though I can't see all of the chains, I assume), but do you think you have some more space for tutors? Diabolic Intent is super good, as is Increasing Ambition when you have this much mana.

Kind of depends on what you intend to hit with it, but if you're targeting creatures, I would always go with Necromancy or Animate Dead over Beacon of Unrest.

Happy deckbuilding! :)
