Morkrut Banshee Discussion

You have several sub optimal card choices; Succumb to Temptation rather than Night's Whisper , Murder rather than Dismember , Victim of Night or the already mentioned Fatal Push which is premium removal.

There is a certain appeal to the Morbid keyword for this deck, be it Tragic Slip , Morkrut Banshee or Reaper from the Abyss as a backup plan. Speaking of a backup plan to the combo, maybe; Myr Superion or Lupine Prototype could work. I'd also want a board wipe like Bontu's Last Reckoning , Damnation , Languish or Ritual of Soot to clear away fast aggro or token strategies. Hope this is of help, good luck brewing your deck.

If you look at most EDH decks, the bulk of their cards fall on the 2 to 4 CMC slots. I would try out stuff like Kami of the Waning Moon, Hired Muscle, Farbog Revenant, Crypt Ghast, Baleful Eidolon, Lost Soul, Mindwarper, Morkrut Banshee, Nether Shadow, Pale Rider of Trostad, Searchlight Geist, Keening Banshee, Souldrinker, Skulking Ghost, Thief of Hope, Vampiric Spirit, Wicked Akuba, Death Denied, Horobi's Whisper, Soulless Revival, Three Tragedies, Swallowing Plague.

Everything else is too expensive or pretty terrible.

Besides the last two, I find them all very funny. Thanks for a good laugh!!!

I think that Morkrut Banshee and cards like it are funny (strange funny) in that they’re some random mytical creature with massive breasts. Way to sexualize some fantasy art, Wizards. Completely out of context compared to characters like Liliana of the Veil and Rakish Heir that are supposed to have some sexual vibe.

Fleshbag Marauder seems to me like an interesting alternative to Abyssal Gatekeeper, depending on preference, definitely worth looking into. Tragic Slip could replace Morkrut Banshee, the cheap cost is really nice, but I think I will stick with the Banshee, since she's also a mediocre creature and I like the possibility to sacrifice and resurrect her for her effect.

When it comes to lands, I have to agree with you. Though I haven't seen any such card in play while playing with my group, we have a lot of people with lots of decks and many of us like to play mean decks, so I wouldn't be surprised to one day face such cards.
