Incremental Blight Discussion

Kaneki___Ken on Made a Scorpion God list!

Love the list, maybe put in Incremental Blight? Other than that I love it. +1 from me.

The Incremental Blight should stay in my honest opinion I went against a Samut, Voice of Dissent deck. That card saved me multiple times also it's also a good way to stop a few eldrazi titans reason I mentioned Mirage Mirror is there may be times where we either

a. want to create a extra mana rock in case the deck get mana screwed.

b. If a opponent brings out a creature or resource v that can destroy everything so why not use it as a insurance policy?

gdm1989: While I do like redundancy, I honestly think that Torment of Hailfire is meh here. It's not a bad card, it just doesn't fit the deck's goals (since the deck doesn't generate too much mana).

I don't see Mirage Mirror fitting, at least. What should it copy within this deck?

My first cut might be Incremental Blight TBH...I'll think further on it.

SolomonsEfreet on You can't Touch That! Under 50$ format

added Hell's Caretaker. With snakes available to sacrifice this will allow me to pull from graveyard and get creatures for added ETB eccects (the minus counters in particular) Added Gray Merchant of Asphodel. This can owrk nice for late game garnering some nice life in a multiplayer format as well as pose a threat from graveyard with Hell's Caretaker pulling him back in for a snake. Thornbite Staff on the caretaker can lead to a loop. Added Rendclaw Trow more snakes. Added Incremental Blight ,Cinderbones and Viridian Corrupter again the more wither I get out there the better and less reluctant an enemy to attack as I can get snakes and insects out of it.

ravanstrike, rakdos24, Bhaal666, Zimmers_0: I'm waiting for the official judge ruling on how she interacts with Wither and ETB -1 counters. But I would think they work? Since you own the ability's source, "you" are the one placing them (same as how Incremental Blight works).

Splinterfright is more of a "fill the graveyard to the brim" card and Bloodbond March is more a "empty my graveyard onto the battlefield" card so they don't mix that well. Incremental Blight, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Infinite oblideration and Cemetery Reaper seams weak and are the cards I would cut first to make room for better verisions.

DemonDragonJ on Creeping Death and Gathering Sunlight

1 year ago

I recently conceived ideas for two cards: one that represents death slowly and horribly creeping upon creatures, the other portraying powerful light gradually making creatures more powerful, and here are the results of my work:

Creeping Death Show

Gathering Sunlight Show

The idea of the first card is that as long as its controller is willing to make one of their own creatures weaker, they shall make all of their opponents' creatures weaker, and the idea of the second card is that as long as its controller is willing to make one of their opponents' creatures more powerful, they shall make all of their own creatures more powerful. Please note that the second ability of each card triggers no matter how the appropriate type of counter is placed on a creature, either from the first ability or other abilities, so they work well with strategies that make great use of such counters (and also would be great with either Incremental Blight or Incremental Growth).

As a side note, I named creeping death in honor of the song of the same name by Metallica, as that is such an awesome song.

What does everyone else think of these cards? How are they?
