Insult Discussion

incesticus on HOU - Grixis Control

1 week ago

You control playing, Bolas worshipping, grixis loving, megadeth quoting sum'bitch. I've been lookin' at this deck for awhile, and I'm extremely excited to enter into the control field as a minion to our lord and savior, Nicol Bolas. This list has been an invaluable resource to utilize as a competitive grixis standard deck, especially with your detailed explanations and statistics. I'm hoping to include some funkier, more casual stuff, like Insult. The dream was to create a deck that comboes Shadow of the Grave with cycling and stuff like Chandra, Flamecaller, Collective Defiance, Fateful Showdown, Cathartic Reunion to draw boats of cards at once, and run graveyard and discard synergies, such as Faith of the Devoted or something like Rise from the Tides. I thought about Brain in a Jar to make discard spells instant, but the whole thing feels a little janky. Any ideas?

Thanks, and HAIL BOLAS

Prerendered on Insult to Insult to even more Insult

NinjaMonkeey I completely forgot about Invigorated Rampage. for +4/+0 and trample (if Baral is out) on top of an Insult sounds really good so I'll probably consider using it. Thanks!

I really love this idea, I've been wanting to do something fun/funny with Insult for a bit now and I'll definitely be trying this out! Sadly not the best with suggestions, but perhaps Censor would be a good card to put in? Cycle it for the draw power and grow closer to flipping Curious Homunculus?

Thanks, and congrats on your Game Day performance! I've actually had Insult / Injury on the maybeboard since I first loaded the deck up, but I haven't had a chance to seriously test it. I'll let you know how it goes. BTW, if you're loving it, you might also look at Uncaged Fury. Pros and cons to both of course, but I ran Fury with Pummeler back in KLD and was amazed how often that extra +1/+1 made a difference. Also, I hate it that all the damage doesn't Trample through with Insult.

I tested Kari Zev's Expertise and found it just a little too situational for my tastes. It was AWESOME when everything lined up, but it was just a dead card in my hand way too often. I've found 3x Manglehorn to be superb vs. Marvel, but if I found myself in a meta where I wanted a little more insurance against both Aetherworks Marvel and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, I'd probably add a singleton Island in the main and 2x Ceremonious Rejection in the side.

Thanks again, and draw well!

clayperce on Win on Turn 4/5 Consistently? Yessir

The coolest thing about the card though: The art from Insult wraps around to Injury. That's some serious Minotaur breath!

Makes sense. Again, draw well!

@ clayperce Good point! I mis-read the wording on the Insult half of the card.

A small point of clarification on Insult / Injury: Because of the wording on the card, not all the extra damage actually Tramples though. Say you had cast Insult and were attacking with Consulate Dreadnought + Built to Smash (10/14 with Trample), and an opponent chump-blocked with a Rogue Refiner (3/2). You would likely assign 2 damage to the Refiner and 8 to your opponent's face. Then Insult triggers, and the damage is doubled. So you actually end up doing 4 damage to the Refiner and 16 to your opponent. It's still TON of damage, but it's not quite as good as Double-strike would be.

Also, Fling works fine with Insult. In that case, Fling is the 'source you control', so it does twice as much damage. Flinging the 10/14 Dreadnought from the previous example would do 20 points of damage.

This looks superb.

Really my only thought is have you tested with 21 Lands? It may just be my playstyle, but with your curve I think I'd want another.

Also, on Glorybringer vs. Insult, I think I'd probably lean towards the Dragon. It seems like Insult would be amazing when ahead, but could be lackluster when behind. Though Insult + Fling could make it all worthwhile! :-)

Finally, you might want to drop by the All Things Pummeler thread. I'd love to add your voice to the conversation.

Draw well!
