Languish Discussion

Hatchman on Torpor and Fatty friends

Nice Deck conception, i recommend to add a full Playset of Thoughtseize and cut a Land, the Duress and move the Languish or the Stubborn Denial to the sideboard. Beside of that recommendation +1 from me.

"Needs more filtering such as Impulse or Dimir Charm."

Then add them.

Disallow doesn't seem very good, because Cancel isn't good. Putrefy also doesn't seem amazing, because Murder isn't good.

The bounce lands are just bad in almost all cases, because you get set a turn behind. They're like guild gates that you can't play turn one.

For additions, Dismember is a nice card. Chain of Vapor is likewise awesome. Dispel helps protect you when comboing off. Shred Memory is an ok tutor, with fringe benefits if needed. Languish is a nice wipe, as Tasigur doesn't die to it.

You need to add more control elements to make it run smoother, you have a decent amount, but it needs some sweepers like Anger of the Gods Languish or AEtherize. Disallow is going to be better than Cancel, but if you don't want to spend the money on it Scatter to the Winds, Void Shatter, Dissolve, Dissipate and Counterflux are all cheaper upgrades. Upgrade your mana base as you can, you could easily start by adding a few of the cycle dual lands or the battle for zendikar ones, then get Dragonskull Summit. I also like Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary, especially if you focus more on swamps. To help get bolas in play faster, Talisman of Indulgence and Talisman of Dominance are 2 drop mana rocks that work well in your colors. I would drop all your creatures and go more spell heavy, maybe making room for some Spellheart Chimera or Enigma Drake since you would increase your spell count. You can also run things like Sea Gate Oracle and Augury Owl to set up your draws. Consult the Necrosages is better than Brainbite. Slave of Bolas and Elder Mastery should be replaced with Dark Intimations. Drop Throne of the God-Pharaoh as well since you arent making tokens to benefit from it. Another decent creature to put in would be Noxious Gearhulk since it removes a creature. Duress and Blightning are also really good, as well as Negate and Barter in Blood.

Bunnynut Hey, thanks! That's great to hear. Yeah, Damnation and Creeping Tar Pit were the most expensive additions, right about at my upper limit per card. You could do Anger of the Gods, or a second Yahenni's Expertise. I think Languish is probably the best replacement though.

ZendikariWol, I had planned to use Ashnod's Altar but i think i may need a few wheel cards to add to the discard. Thanks for the info, I had not thought about that part enough. I had also planned for Blasphemous Act , Decree of Pain and Languish to remove board states then rebuild quickly with my large mana base.

One of the most important things in control decks are cheap to cast board wipes. Radiant Flames, Pyroclasm and possibly Languish are good candidates for this role. Your also probably better off using Mind Control over Slave of Bolas since you get keep the creature permanently. I would disregard Imminent Doom and throw in another Lightning Bolt.

TheSurgeon on D'scarred (Lili-less 8-Rack?!)

I agree, zephyr_chang. I often lose to aggro and go wide as I don't have enough removal. Thinking something more board-wide, like Languish or MB Darkness; or perhaps invest in a few Damnation to set back the opponent as much as possible. Single removal just doesn't seem to cut it in my meta.

Thoughts on what to take out and adjust? I'm new to 8-rack, and piloting it seems a bit two dimensional. Thanks for the input!
