Kothophed, Soul Hoarder Discussion

TemnoTsar on Mono Black DEmon

First off, I love this deck! Demons are a fun tribe (however they barely don't make my top five).

My one suggestion is to drop Warn Powerstone for something like Gauntlet of Power, Nirkana Revenant, or Extraplanar Lens. The reason you might want to drop Warn is it is slow. It comes out tapped which sets you back one turn. The three listed cards help you double your mana and with such a high CMC, you'll need it.

Another suggestion is to take out Tendrils of Corruption for it's better counterpart, Corrupt. Being able to hit someone for a lot of damage can be a game ender. Corruption also hits creatures.

A demon I'm shocked to see missing is Harvester of Souls. With all your creature removal, I thought you'd run him. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is also good card draw, but is a bit risky.

Was looking at your deck some more, and I have a few more ideas, like upping your demon count and a few reanimation spells liiiiike.....

Desecration Demon, Grave Titan, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Reiver Demon, Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Overseer of the Damned

stuff like that...then you could put in reanimation spells like

Animate Dead, Reanimate, Ever After, Whip of Erebos, Sheoldred, Whispering One

stuff like that...you could throw in Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice for card draw/discard

Maybe a zombie sub theme and add in Shepherd of Rot

Fun things like Tree of Perdition, Quietus Spike, Rage Reflection, Ward of Bones, Havoc Festival

If anything definitely add Anger to your deck

or just throw in 30 Shadowborn Apostle haha

If I repeated any cards already in your deck, I apologize. Either was happy building and kick some ace!!

DemonDragonJ on Core Set Legendary Creatures By ...

Since I have already created threads that list commanders and planeswalkers by home plane, I shall now create a thread that lists legendary creatures who have appeared in core sets by home plane.

As with my previous lists, I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one legendary creature who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name, and then list each legendary creature from that plane who has appeared in a core set alphabetically by name. If that creature is from a specific region of that plane or is a member of a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

What does everyone think of this list? Is it sufficiently informative? Have I improperly labeled any creatures? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Alright... Lessee what I advice I can give, here...

First off, 44 lands may be a bit overkill. I'd recommend you consider putting the signets back in, as well as Darksteel Ingot, if you still have 'em. The Ravnica bounce lands are deceptively good, as well. They may return a land you control to your hand, but you can just bounce a tapped on after using it. That second mana they produce can be quite useful in the long run.

Dolmen Gate is an interesting card I've never seen in a Kaalia deck before. O.o I like it! Might consider getting one, myself, lol.

I'd recommend a few cheaper critters like Baneslayer Angel and Thundermaw Hellkite. Mainboarding your Blinding Angel and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder would also be advisable. There's also Harvester of Souls to consider, and I find it odd that you took out Angel of Despair. O.o

Rise of the Dark Realms and In Garruk's Wake are interesting, but seem... unnecessary. Same goes for Warstorm Surge.

Finally, Decree of Pain seems like it'd be useful, as well--particularly as a replacement for Wake.

For further inspiration, my deck's right here: Hardcore Kaalia.

Hope that helps! :)

one of my friends got the ultimate off on the flip lili before anyone could get anything out to deal with it. he was talking trash saying "you might as well concede now". he held that attitude for a while, untill he started loosing to and eventually lost to demon tribal. i find it ironic that the Kothophed, Soul Hoarder he stole from me ended up being his downfall. i guess demons will always control Liliana lol.

Wow, that was absolutely badass! I can't wait for next one, I hope my dear Lili doesn't come to harm. I'm excited to see Razaketh's card. I hope it will be more Griselbrand level than Kothophed, Soul Hoarder even though I like them both.

This has inspired me to pull out the last book in the Ravnica Cycle, dust it off and finish reading it.

how does the deck develop in the early turns? - Disruption, disruption, disruption. Find something to gum up the works asap. Chains of Mephistopheles, Oppression, Desolation, Mindslicer, Contamination, or Infernal Darkness all work wonders. Necropotence, Waste Not, or Geth's Grimoire are great for creating early advantage, but they don't adversely affect opponent game plans, so first priority is disruption.

what is the reason you arent running buried alive? - It's unnecessary and it reveals lots of information. Unless you can immediately convert Buried Alive into a win, you've given the table a map of what line you're on. I prefer to develop wincons as they emerge to keep opponents guessing.

how do you feel about pawn of ulamog? - I've considered it a couple times. It still may find its way in. At the end of the day, the trouble with this and Grim Haruspex is that they only trigger when nontoken creatures die. Sure, that dovetails fine with Gravecrawler, but you want to capitalize on everything if possible (Dark Prophecy, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Carnival of Souls).

inventors fair seems playable here - Agreed. It comes and goes.

nether traitor - It's a combo piece that has no other utility. Try to keep those to a minimum.
