Mind Rot Discussion

Aftertherevolution on Mono-Black Hand destruction

3 days ago

I'm still learning about the standard meta, but I wonder if Mind Rot is left out b/c it's not as strong as the others? ie. 3 CMC and opponent chooses? I think I'd be tempted to ditch Whispers of Emrakul and not worry about delirium. In some ways, I actually find value in seeing what an opponent chooses to discard (especially if it's in RL and they don't have a poker face). But maybe it messes with your ideal curve?

It also made me think a deck with some combo of this might be cool, but I've no idea atm what it would replace...

Also looked at these two .. tho don't think they quite beat out others you have

I like this a lot. Have you had a chance to playtest this in Standard? Only problems I see are not enough earlier removal, maybe add another optional wincon and I wouldn't run x4 Mind Rot ever, keep that at x2 at most. My recommendation would be to cut x1 Complete Disregard and x2 Mind Rot and throw in those x3 Fatal Push you have in the sideboard. This will even your curve out a little more (you have way too many 3 drops) and help you get through those early stages of the game. Good luck!

BioProfDude on B/G Fun with deathtouch (3-1 at FNM)

Mokan, 23 land is just about right. I tried 22 and had some issues, and even at 23 I still get a mana issues. I need to have mana both to play creatures and to do combat tricks/effects. Once I get to about 5 mana (6 is ideal), everything clicks very well. Even at 22 mana that was a struggle. Just seems like 23 mana has helped that a lot.

The sideboard needs help and is not indicative of what was actually run. That'll be fixed soon. Thanks for the suggestions! Heroic Intervention and another Blossoming Defense will certainly be there.

I do have a delirium creature or two in the deck, just like I have a couple of revolt creatures/instants. I have chosen to try to exploit neither. Occasionally I get delirium, occasionally I can trigger revolt. For a delirium deck to truly work, the whole deck has to be built around the mechanic (and I think revolt is the same way). In this case, I get a 1/1 or 1/2 creature with deathtouch for either a single or a single , and that's my main focus. To try to do more would fundamentally change the deck.

Mind Rot and Transgress the Mind are for control decks, particularly decks that have oodles of removal. I actually had 3x Transgress the Mind (instead of the 2x listed above) and the 2x Mind Rot in my side and used them against a copy cat deck and a B/R Eldrazi deck to great effect. At this point, I would be very unlikely to move those out as they both do a great job. Play the Mind Rot, then the Transgress the Mind to see what they kept that they wanted so badly.

Thank you for the suggestions! Also, thank you for the +1/+1!

I would try and cut it down to 60 cards, 24 lands is a good starting point for a 60 card deck, but many decks run more or less on their goal. I would take out Mind Rot as it has really no place in this deck. Gifted Aetherborn is a great 2 drop, so I would run a full playset, I'm not sure what the goal of this deck is, most decks have a strategy in mind when choosing cards, you should try to pick a strategy/archetype (such as mill, aggro, control) and build your deck around it using only cards that work well with your overall strategy. A good question to ask yourself when adding a card is, how does this contribute to my gameplan? If you don't have a good response you should probably not add the card. Good luck!

Fr0sty11 on Lilianas caress/Burning inquiry deck

2 weeks ago

I know this deck used to be good back in the day.. Like 2011 or so.

A B/R aggro deck.

I've played mine a few times and it seems to struggle

So this deck basically is one sided... I need to get 2 of either lillianas caress or megrim on the board.. Then play burning inquiry.. Then i need to reverberate.

This deck is ok... I feel like i need more draw. Or. Maybe some creature blockage.. I thought terminate, lighting and whatnot would take care of creatures but i seem to be losing alot with this deck by just direct creature damage.

Sometimes I'm mana strapped.. Any idea on cards to make this deck work.

It's really run when i get the right amount of manna and cards as this deck can really frustrate plp.. But right now that happens.. 1/5 matches it seems.

What statistics? The only home for Mind Rot is your kitchen table. You do realize this is a somewhat-competitive modern deck, don't you?

First of all: If you want to play Pauper, all youre Cards have to be Commons not uncommons. But beside this, I am really liking the Idea, +1. Here just some Cards you could play:Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Mind Rot, Contaminated Ground, Typhoid Rats, Shadow Alley Denizen, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Read the Bones , Defiant Salvager, Shadow Slice, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, Pulse Tracker, Murderous Compulsion, Bone Splinters, Stab Wound, Deadbridge Shaman, Boon of Erebos, Polluted Delta and Gray Merchant of Asphodel to call some. This are the first cards coming to my mind, I can look for other cards the next days.
