Korlash, Heir to Blackblade Discussion

colton815 on Forests turned swamp!

1 week ago

with your current lands, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is entirely useless. korlash is best in a deck where most, if not all, of the lands are swamps. same deal with Nightmare, and Squelching Leeches, but those 2 aren't modern viable regardless. not to be mean, but it kinda boggles my mind how you could read "swamps" and think to yourself "almost all my lands should be basic forests". Overgrown Tomb exists you know.

you don't run enough lands and mana ramp to be using all those cmc 4+ cards. land search does not equal land ramp, and the little ramp you do have has a high cmc of its own.

Here's my take on your Mono Black deck utilizing swamps. It's basically a creature control deck with tons of removal spells with life drain as your wincon. However, when you're up against control, the sideboard changes the deck into hand disruption and aggressive creatures.

(4) Vendetta

(2) Exsanguinate

(1) Damnable Pact

(4) Doom Blade

(4) Go for the Throat

(4) Sign in Blood

(1) To the Slaughter

(1) Never

(2) Ruinous Path

(4) Read the Bones

(3) Liliana of the Dark Realms

(3) Korlash, Heir to Blackblade

(4) Corrupt

(23) Swamp

I play legacy zombies. Unless you play zombardment (not a true zombie tribal) they are pretty weak. Legacy is a brutal format and elves/gobs seem to be the main viable tribals. That being said I love the direction you took with your legacy zombs, way different than the way I went.

I do think 4x Gravecrawler with 3-4x Buried Alive is probably one of the most synergistic combos for a zombie tribal, especially with the mana ramp like Dark Ritual you have in there. I also think that if you are playing monoblack like this you should ABUSE the discard power black has with Thoughtseize or Hymn to Tourach. One of the most broken black cards in the format Reanimate or Animate Dead if you want budget is great with zombies as well. With these you have some nasty potential for turns 1-2 to either force and opponent to discard a powerful creature card and reanimate it on your side, or t1 start shitting out gravecrawlers from your yard and overwhelm. A turn 1 Buried Alive will also be great to fuel your graveyard for dropping a very early Gurmag Angler if you have to.

Relentless Dead is obscenely overpowered, especially with Corpse Harvester.

I have been playing with Smallpox recently, and it could have some potential.

Diregraf Colossus is nuts for zombies.

Since you are going hard ramp, 4x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is great. Read the Bones is a good draw over Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood as well imo.

Bloodghast, Death Baron.

You have the same amount of land I ran in a GoN elves deck, which doesn't seem right.

dmpsy I'd recommend Gatekeeper of Malakir and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade for better disruption and a sweet top end.

Here's my U/B Emergevoke deck. I want to know how I can improve it, both by changing numbers of cards and the cards themselves. Also looking for thoughts on the disruption package, and suggestions about Opt vs. Serum Visions vs. Sleight of Hand. Thanks!

Gidgetimer on Can Sengir Nosferatu's Bat summon ...

Please link all cards using double brackets.

Sengir Nosferatu

Mairsil, the Pretender

The way copy effects interact with cards is a little different than your understanding, but the difference is important to understanding the answer to this question. When a card references itself using only the card name it means "the permanent this ability is printed on". So for example Inferno Titan's fire breathing ability would allow Mairsil to give himself +1/+0. When a card says "a card named ..." or "creatures named ..." then it is looking for that specific name, no matter what it is printed on. So if you are playing a 60 card format and cage Korlash, Heir to Blackblade you could discard a Korlash and get two swamps. Similarly the bat from Mairsil could pull the caged Sengir Nosferatu from exile, but can not bring Mairsil because it is not a card named "Sengir Nosferatu".

Also the command zone is not "inside" the exile zone, it is a completely different zone. However it is a public zone and abilities can track it if it goes to the command zone instead of exile.

@ zephyr_chang I've been able to play everything that's high in cost, as soon as I have a Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, I can search for another one with many "search library" cards and use his "Grandeur" to get an additional 2 swamps onto the field from my library.... Then my Raise Dead and Ghoulcaller's Chant can immediately bring 1 or 2 discarded Korlash into my hand and do it again. I've got 9 Swamps out on the field in one turn by doing so.

EternalBrewmaster - Just wanted to tag you to see the final product. I purposefully slowed the deck down because my meta is in no way competitive. I was interested what you thought being that yours was the frame for mine. I decided to keep the Korlash, Heir to Blackblade combo, but the rest is just control through reanimation. Let me know what you think and/or any suggestions. Thanks for the inspiration man.
