Lupine Prototype Discussion

MRDOOM3 on What if...I get help?

Have you considered Lupine Prototype? Then again, I'm not completely sure as to how effectively your hand gets emptied with this deck.

Avatar of Discord is a nice beater as well, and he allows you to dump 2 cards.

Rakdos Augermage, Collective Brutality, Conflagrate, and maybe Jagged Poppet seem like nice additions as well.

hullos, I think you're right, the scry on Veteran Motorist is very powerful and the fact that it is a 3/1 gives it good synergy with Cultivator's Caravan. I'll add a couple and increase as needed.

medozz, I'll keep Lupine Prototype in my sideboard, and try it once I get a chance to play against a friend. I went ahead and switched in Cathartic Reunion. I don't like the need to discard 2 cards, but I think I agree that the 3 card gain is far more valuable in the long run.

Additional Questions/Thoughts

Since Smuggler's Copter is banned and Heart of Kiran is at $9, would you suggest Aethersphere Harvester over Sky Skiff? It's, money wise, more expensive, but also extra for life link and a 3/5 instead of a 2/3 (while retaining Flying and Crew 1). I feel like it is a bit too slow, and doesn't work as well with Sram, Senior Edificer.

Additionally, would you suggest keeping Renegade Tactics or maybe just adding a couple more Veteran Motorists?

Thanks for the input!

Agree with hullos. Veteran Motorist with the scry and high power is your best friend. Lupine Prototype is amazing in this kind of decks. I know it makes not rotation proof but helps a lot. I would cut a few Modifications for those cards.

Also, consdier Cathartic Reunion instead of Tormenting Voice.

I think the trick to this deck are the cheep draw spells (Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood) because they help you find the Heartless Summoning as fast as possible and let you keep up your tempo after Heartless Summoning is out. Once you get out a Heartless Summoning you want to go wide with Soultether Golem, Myr Superion and Lupine Prototype. Myr Retriever I thought of as more of a way to get back Perilous Myr, Necropede and the odd Soultether Golem. Since both Perilous Myr and Necropede are more to act as removal Myr Retriever can act as a redundancy to their effects. The thing that ties this deck together are the 10 draw spells.

Minihorror227 on Heartless Budget

may i ask what the plan with this deck is? it seems to me that it is mostly built around getting Myr Superion and Lupine Prototype out quickly or getting Myr Retriever to combo to get multiple creatures back from the graveyard. However, i dont know how effective that can be.

Can you explain to me how the deck is meant to function so i can fully understand it?

PS. not trying to hate on the deck or anything. i love Heartless Summoning and have been trying to build a deck around it for awhile now(and closest i have got is a crappy curses deck).

Uba Mask seems like it's questionable with madness stuff. You don't really want to play a 4 mana 2/2. If we have red now, it does turn Faithless Looting into a 2 mana draw 2 (at least I think it does). You can also flashback looting if you find yourself drawing into lands you don't need. I copied your list and made some changes because I wanted to know if it really worked and it felt like Alms of the Vein added a lot of speed. I know you're probably set on One with Nothing but Collective Brutality felt a lot stronger. You don't really want your entire hand discarded unless you have a lupine prototype which means you don't want to be using a OwN until t3. When you do, you'll have 2 mana left for madness costs, which can be Grave Scrabbler (but you probably didn't discard a creature on 1 if you're trying to discard your hand on 3 and you now have no 1-drops), a couple of unearths, or you play a 2 drop beforehand which means you only get value out of unearths. Ideally, I guess you would Temur Battle Rage or play another Lupine Prototype, or just opt for Avatar of Discord. The most frustrating thing when I was messing around with the list was not having cards to discard for avatar after trying to get a prototype running. Uba Mask doesn't really have synergy with avatar, Zombie Infestation, or the possible Alms of the Vein. Maybe think about going less all-in with One with Nothing and look at Hollow One? It also turns on the 4-attack cards and seems like it could add a lot of beef. You can also cycle it and return it later with Grave Scrabbler. I know, I know... this is probably just a casual One with Nothing list, but hey... yeah. If you can madness a Grave Scrabbler off of OwN to get something you discarded with the same OwN, it all gets a bit better but idk the ruling on that one.

Myr Servitor? Grave Crawler is also pretty good with the whole zombie theme. Then there are pricier cards like Collective Brutality, Bloodghast, and Liliana of the Veil that might be good. Transgress is good against Emrakul but maybe Brutality is better maindeck and you can sub in Transgress from the sideboard. You can also One with Nothing a Grave Scrabbler to get a Lupine Prototype back. Reassembling Skeleton and Dread Wanderer seem really bad compared to Grave Scrabbler shenanigans. This deck makes me happy, good luck
