Inquisition of Kozilek Discussion

Duke.Fleed on -1/1 Counter Madness

Ok, I've actually been thinking about Necroskitter for a long time, I think the printing of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons makes the deck possible. So a deck with Necroskitter to be good I think you need to add green for Melira, Sylvok Outcast and Chord of Calling. This allows you to combo Necroskitter with Black Sun's Zenith.

The deck you currently have isn't bad, I think you ment to put in Nest of Scarabs instead of Scarab Feast. I would say Grim Affliction is too slow, Contagion Clasp instead. -1/-1 counters on their own are not super powerful, that is why having other cards that benefit like Necroskitter, Nest of Scarabs, and Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. Another interesting card is Crumbling Ashes, allows for easier control of the board. Corrosive Mentor is also fairly interesting.

I think for this deck to survive long enough to get all it's pieces together you need to play some hand hate: Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Duress.

Ultimate Price is always worse than Go for the Throat (both can't hit artifacts)

I'd play Condemn, Path to Exile, Fatal Push and even Anguished Unmaking over Utter End.

Despise is not really a strong discard spell, I'd rather have Duress, as that usually hits the most dangerous cards. Of course Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are better than both. If you want to stay budget, which I assume, why not go for Tidehollow Sculler or Sin Collector? Both are really strong cards, even in competitive Modern.

i'd bring your landcount to 23. Try to get the full playset of Isolated Chapel. Concealed Courtyard and Caves of Koilos are affordable as well. Evolving Wilds is not great and would just be an emergency solution. Either way, you need more dual lands to have reliable mana.

Vampire Nighthawk has some strong competition in Gifted Aetherborn now. But you need more dual lands, otherwise it is too difficult to cast reliably on turn 2 or even 3.

I've seen some decks that run Tainted Remedy as the cornerstone to play cards that grant the opponent life. You don't have enough lifegain cards to make that a viable direction though, it's also much more vulnerable and combo-like.

I see what you are trying to do with Niblis of the Urn, but it is a pretty weak card overall. You should find another alternative for tap-effects, that one is a bit weak. Or just go with more removal, no tapping needed then. Luckily, Black and White have the best removal.

The appeal of Black & White decks comes from Lingering Souls in most cases, which is a pretty insane card. It will drive any Control player mad, as it is a nightmare to destroy with removal. I would highly recommend slamming it in any B/W deck, you almost can't go wrong there. It works well with Cartel Aristocrat, but that would go in a completly different direction I suppose.

Edge of the Divinity is a good, but problematic card. It makes your opponent's removal twice as good, but it offers a cheap and strong boost. I'd say only ever run Auras in Modern if you put it on a Hexproof creature. Even if you'd ignore that for now, this card wants to be played in a highly aggressive deck. Your deck is a bit too slow for that to work out, so I personally wouldn't run it.

Underworld Connections is much worse than Phyrexian Arena. Asylum Visitor can be an alternative if you really need the drawing power. It is cheap and can usually trade with something else.

Ambition's Cost is pretty much unplayable in Modern. Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood and the cards mentioned above are much better when it comes to drawing cards.

I wouldn't focus your deck towards Alms Beast too much. Just use it as a finisher and your top-end card. You should decide which direction your deck should go. Either you go down on creatures, and instead increase removal and hand disruption, maybe add some Mana Tithe and play Orzhov Control with the Beast as your finisher. Or load up on creatures, cut your draw and removal and go aggressive, with creatures low in cost and high in power to go wider. Either way, both varieties would be stronger than what you have now, which is sort of a mix of both and that never really worked out as far as I know.

Good luck with the deck!

Surgical Extraction is best on turn 1. Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek into Surgical can be back breaking. Requires a Turn 1 swamp though...

I think you shouldn't run Inquisition of Kozilek and Mana Tithe if you're not playing a full control deck. Your opponents will have always a lot of mana to pay the Mana Tithe and Inquisition can only discard 3 mana cost or less cards.If you want cards like that to control or protect your stuff I will recommend you: Rebuff the Wicked , Imp's Mischief.

Hi Lord_Khaineit is easy to make a sideboardversion: just copy your deck and change the cards from main to side. that's how I make them.what do you think fits best against my deck? I think try as follows: -1x Victim of Night, -1xInquisition of Kozilek, -1xThoughtseize, -1xPain Seer, +4xSadistic Sacrament

Ideas that we thought of while you were here:

Ajani Vengeant - possibly 2 (Maybe board)

Spreading Seas - 4 of them

Yahenni's Expertise - 2 of them (Sideboard)

Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek

Remove 1 Path to Exile for # 7

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver instead of Ajani or Nahiri

Take out Mana Leaks for Spreading Seas

Add Tolaria West

Moonbar on BELCHING ZOMBIES (opinions please)

Hey, I have built a zombie deck. I played it at a GP, so I have some experience. Bloodghast is not as good as many zombies simply because it doesn't have a tribal bonus. Aether Vial will be better than Liliana of the Veil since zombies want to be more aggressive. Plague Belcher seems really really sweet, I would run 4. I would take out Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and some number of Inquisition of Kozileks and removal spells for Death Baron as a 4-of. The new Amonkhet lord, Lord of the Accursed, seems really good also. I would also bring Collective Brutality into the main. From my experience, Diregraf Colossus is way too slow, and when you win with it, you were already winning anyways. I would use Marsh Flats instead of Bloodstained Mire for a white splash, getting you some really awesome sideboard tech along with Path to Exile and Wayward Servant in the main. A word of warning: DO NOT run Prized Amalgam in this list. It doesn't trigger often and is in most cases straight worse than a Death Baron or Lord of the Accursed.

Zombies are quite powerful, so keep with it. It definitely can keep up in the meta right now, and can do some hilarious things with Aether Vial in play.

If the commons/uncommons are packed with Lightning Bolts, Swords to Plowshares, Ponders, Inquisition of Kozilek, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Counterspell, and other fun stuff I'd still get few even if the mythics were all storm crows and grizzly bears.

Sure, it's fun to open a $10 pack with 14 chaff and one $20 card, but I'd much rather open a $10 pack with 15 $1 cards.

Plus, life becomes a lot easier if Chainer's Edict and Battle Screech finally get paper printings at common.
