Mortify Discussion

Philigan87 on No Pain, No Gain (Sub $35)

4 days ago

My first thought was Wall of Limbs, but I see it in the maybe-board.

Sunbond is maybe one to consider.
Also Ajani's Pridemate might be too good to leave out, in this deck.

Night Market Lookout is only as good as your ability to tap him. If he can't attack he's a bit shit. Soul Warden instead maybe?.

I would lose Orzhov Keyrune and instead go forBontu's Monument and Oketra's Monument. Thery're good for fixing mana and creating abusable effects.

Greed seems to good not to put in, maybe lose Retreat to Hagra (will there be that much landfall?) Underworld Connections is a cheaper, and worse, version if need be.

Trespasser's Curse seems like fun.

Miraculous Recovery just for EOT returning Felidar Sovereign for a quick and easy win.

If you need to cut costs to get stuff in Scholar of Athreos might be a cheap substitute for something.

Bond of Agony maybe?

Blood Tribute is you have enough Vamps.

Mortify is quite versatile.

Those are my thoughts.

Hi there, how about a Mortify as opposed to Flesh to Dust its a cheaper mana cost and can be used for enchantments also.

Hey there, I would just run 4 Castigate if you are wanting to use the 2 mana discard.

In the kindest terms, Transgress the Mind sucks.

Terashi's Grasp is also close to unplayable. Disenchant exists and it's instant.

They are good but not main deck, 2 in the sideboard is great though.

Mortify is not great. Anguished Unmaking Exists.

Read the Bones is not great Night's Whisper exists.

Child of Night - There are so many 2 mana cards in modern that are better.

Look to the Knights for budget stuff Knight of Meadowgrain or

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Consul's Lieutenant - Double white for no benefit. Renown doesn't really work in modern.

The same 2 cards I listed above are strictly 200% better. I think they are both cheap $$.


Go Aristocrats.

Basic/Generic/Budget(ish) Build could like this

4x Concealed Courtyard

4x Isolated Chapel

8x Swamp

4x Plains

plus 2-4 other lands

4x Blood Artist

4x Zulaport Cutthroat

4x Bloodsoaked Champion / Viscera Seer

4x Lingering Souls

4x Cartel Aristocrat

2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

2x Anguished Unmaking

3x Path to Exile / Fatal Push - Depending on budget.

Ummm... some sort of kill em all spells Killing Wave is my favorite.

Rally the Ancestors / Return to the Ranks

Lot of options in black and white.

TitanWalls on I'm going off the rails on a crazy gain

2 weeks ago

As a possibility, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim could be a useful addition. It'd work best if you had some tokens to sack in order to activate her second ability, but it would let you get some benefit by sacrificing your 20/20 Ajani's Pridemate in response to the inevitable spot removal. It could potentially replace some or all of your Mortify, since being 10 life over your starting amount should be pretty easy to achieve.

Also, Recumbent Bliss might be a good alternative to Ajani's Mantra.

HunterClaise on Karlov the Undying (Life Gain Deck)

3 weeks ago

Thanks for the compliment haha. I use actually use Mortify, Vindicate, and Austere Command to get rid of enchantments and artifacts. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Fumigate, and Black Sun's Zenith takes care of indestructible creatures along with normal ones. Using Karlov of the Ghost Council as the general definitely doens't hurt anything either haha.

NV_1980 on Stopping Power!

Thanks for your comments Reverie42,

Rule of Law and Eidolon of Rhetoric are fantastic for my mid-game. I don't own these cards yet but will definitely acquire at least one of them. They won't be replacing Fate Unraveler though; you wouldn't believe the dirty looks I get from players using blue when that card hits the table. And it gets even worse when it's joined by Underworld Dreams.

Heliod, God of the Sun is nice alternative to Daxos' token generation but there's just one problem; I have nothing to boost these tokens. They won't benefit from my XP counters. So in that sense, Helios' token ability is a bit underpowered; especially in this configuration.

Skybind is nice, but I don't have that much scary non-enchantment permanents to blink. That's kind of the point :)

Rootborn Defenses is very nice. I'll replace Mortify with it.

007ooi on Queen Marchesa's Evil Boros Army

precociousapprentice, Thanks for the comments. Duelist's Heritage is an interesting recommendation, but I think because I've gone for a bit of a "go-wide" strategy, it probably doesn't fit here. The largest creature I ever have on the field is Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer and I don't think he makes the card slot worth it. Key to the City falls in a similar category, not synergizing particularly well with a wide field of tokens and working better with singular large creatures.

Sunforger is obviously a strong consideration as long as a deck features Red-White, but while I do have an equipment sub-theme, I think having only three targets (Boros Charm, Mortify, and Wear - which can't be cast with fuse off Sunforger) actually makes it a weak inclusion. I could look for more synergy, but that would involve cutting a lot of cards.

Rhyno52 on Life in Death

OK the first thing i have noticed is you are running a deck of 65 cards. Cut those down to 60, thats the minimum size of a deck but also the beste because you want to draw your cards as often or likely as possible.

The second is, you are playing not enough lands to play 5 drops consistant. normally decks with spells that have cards costs of 5 or even 4 are playing 24-25 lands.

The third thing to notice is, you dont have any real synergies or such the only one i notice is the amount of lifegain and your Chalice of Life  Flip.

Maybe you want to run Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood for an actual infinite loop or something. But how its looking now its just putting out creatures in hope they dont get destroyed to beat him down.

maybe put in some more control elements like Mortify but cheaper: Anguished Unmaking.

You could play some cool reanimate stuff like playing Gravecrawler and Bloodghast along with your Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat and an sec engine Viscera Seer, Nantuko Husk to deal damage and get them out of the graveyard again.

But for now i dont know what strategy you want to go for. Those are just a few hints to fuel ideas. I could help you more if you know what you want to do in particular in advance of playing creatures with lifelink. :D
