Moment of Craving Discussion

Some cards to consider for sideboard (or mainboard if you put in some removal). Duress, Vraska's Contempt, Ixalan's Binding, Seal Away, Gideon's Reproach, Nightmare's Thirst, Arterial Flow, Moment of Craving, Divest, Vanquisher's Banner, Sorcerous Spyglass. There's a few more but I think this is a lot already so enjoy brewing with them!

Ok so I'm going to say a lot of things so bear with me. If you are trying to play at a local game store, then you will need to make a lot of changes.

The card I would cut out are Arvad the Cursed Infectious Horror Paladin of the Bloodstained Serra's Guardian Lich's Caress Gruesome Fate Macabre Waltz Luminous Bonds Open the Graves

Card I Would Put in are (assuming you are willing to pay for them) Resplendent Angel Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants Lyra Dawnbringer Shield Mare Nightmare's Thirst Sovereign's Bite Seal Away Legion's Landing  Flip Vraska's Contempt Oathsworn Vampire Famished Paladin Moment of Craving Fountain of Renewal

The basic plan of what you want to do is play low cost creatures with a few high cost creatures that benefit from gaining a lot of life gain triggers. Since there is black you can add some removal to help slow the game down to your pace. Just make sure your deck fits this idea as close as it can and you will see the synergies work together. But make sure you are playing with good cards and not just anything that says gain life.

Brilliant, thank you punkrawkmonkey. I will add a Zhalfirin Void and an Arch of Orazca.

I agree with Sift and you're right I want a deck that is entirely rotation proof.

Blink of an Eye is interesting. I think the life gain from Moment of Craving is a big upside along with removing indestructible creatures.

I did put Negate in as it is easier to cast, along with Essence Scatter I thought I had all bases covered. For one more though Cancel is probably better.

Thanks again for your help, it's much appreciated!

Hey snoozle. Fellow control player here. Since you are only running two colors, you could probably afford to include a couple copies of Zhalfirin Void and maybe one of Arch of Orazca. These are excellent utility lands that help you to to hit the cards you need at any given time in a game. I run them in my Second Sun control deck and they've been a huge help to me so far.

I really don't like Sift with the discard and sorcery speed. An obvious replacement for that would be Glimmer of Genius, but it looks like you want the deck to be legal once we hit the rotation in the fall. Hopefully we will get some better draw spells. That being said Blink of an Eye has been really good for me as both removal and draw. I feel like Moment of Craving isn't very good but then again, I've never played it. Maybe swap those out for the blinks?

I also like to run Negate as a sideboard rather than main because it is almost useless against creature heavy decks like mono red and green stompy. Maybe throw in some Cancels instead?

Just a few suggestions I have. I hope that helped somewhat. Good luck out there! :)

Maybe you want to switch Moment of Craving for Pharika's Cure . Being less coloured demanding doesn't matter here but maybe the negative stats or less damage can be helpful.

The biggest flaw I see in this deck is that you have too many wincons. There are eight, and you should usually have between 3 and 5, with less being manageable. You end up drawing more than you need. You're also very ill equipped to go up against another control deck. I'd cut Moment of Craving (your weakest removal spell, in my opinion) for more counters. Still, this is amazing. Love it.

I think I would play more creatures. Either Paladin of Atonement or Sanctum Seeker, but more creatures. And maybe remove the Duress from your main deck and add a Harsh Scrutiny. More Moment of Cravings in your Sideboard too.
