Mortuary Mire Discussion

I like it. +1. There's a lot of lifegain here, so maybe exploiting that more could make the deck more formidable. I'd say Thalia's Lieutenant is the creature that sticks out to me - it doesn't offer an abilities to Odric. I think I would leave Mentor of the Meek out in favor of Tezzeret's Gambit+Thalia's Lieutenant. Just MHO. Some stuff to consider:

Lands: Mortuary Mire, Bojuka Bog, Windbrisk Heights, Sejiri Steppe, Kabira Crossroads, Buried Ruin.

Artifacts: Chalice of Life  Flip, Elixir of Immortality(SB), Pithing Needle(SB)

Sorcery: Immortal Servitude, Tezzeret's Gambit

Instant: Geth's Verdict, Celestial Flare, Condemn

Enchantment: Sanguine Bond, Oppressive Rays, Oblivion Ring

Creatures: Kazandu Blademaster, Hovermyr, Adanto Vanguard, Gifted Aetherborn

Hey! Maybe put in Paralyze and Oubliette?

Oubliette is very good toward your devotion and it is a staple in control decks.

Maybe switch 2 Swamp for 2 Mortuary Mire that can help you get back a Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

You should definitively get a least 1 Pestilence in. With a good set up, it can win you games.

Check out my Pestilence MBC deck for inspiration.

Thanks for the suggestions chadsansing!

Phyrexian Reclamation is on my radar, I've only had a chance to play the deck twice so far. I'll be running it again a few more times this week so I'll decide after that. My concern is that I won't need the effect more than a couple of times, hence the Mortuary Mire. We'll see though!

I've considered Unspeakable Symbol but rejected it because it just didn't seem to do enough. Bone Splinters is nice, if I need more removal it'll definitely be one I consider! Spore Frog isn't as useful without recursion and I rely too much on tokens for Soldevi Adnate I think. Necrotic Ooze and Vigor Mortis are too high on the curve for what they do I think.

Thanks simplebricks for your comment and recommandations.

I added a Mortuary Mire and 4 Ash Barrens to improve my land base. It helped a lot with the deck consistency.

I added a Undying Evil. I don't know yet if I like it.

With this deck, it is suprinsing easy to keep your hand full, thanks to Cavern Harpy So far, I have trouble against most of top tier decks...

Have you tried it? Thanks again for your comments!

I would recomend running a Mortuary Mire. With aqueduct bounce it can bring back enough cretures to matter. The opportunity cost of running one instead of a swamp is low and it can help coming back after an initial bout of creature removal or control if the game goes long.

Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina are combat tricks that trigger ETB again.

All of the cards above are recomendations with varying levels of utility. What I would slot in a hearbeat is some sort of fetch-land. In either of the three flavours they come in pauper: Ash Barrens, Terramorphic Expanse or Esper Panorama, I am partial to Ash Barrens as it can act as a janky mana-fix by tutoring the color you are short on and can add colorless if you could use another mana and don't need more colored mana for anything. The land tutors help thin out your deck, with this strategy you can't afford many dead draws. What draw/Scry effects you have can help keep a hand full of action but I have a feeling they may not be enough (if you have playtested the deck that obviously overrides this last comment).

Basically, there is no manaramp in either blue or black in Modern. I'd consider adding Bojuka Bog and Mortuary Mire as non-basic lands. Things that make people sacrifice is a good way around hexproof and indestructible. Geth's Verdict is good for that. Also, wraths get around hexproof. Bontu's Last Reckoning, for example, would do the trick. Glaring Spotlight also does the job, though it's not very versatile.

While these are more expensive, they are the better kinds of mana fixing you can find for EDH

Fetches- Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Verdant Catacombs, and other off color fetches

Shocks- Stomping Ground, Overgrown Tomb, Blood Crypt

Filter- Fire-Lit Thicket, Twilight Mire, Graven Cairns

Grove of the Burnwillows

Alpha Duals are another consideration but they are over 100$ a piece, outside of most peoples budget. Same goes for Gaea's Cradle.

Lastly, some of these are cheap and some are not, but every EDH deck should have some utility lands like the ones you have in Rogues Passage and Kher Keep. Some other ones are-

Barren Moor and other mono colored cycle lands

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Raging Ravine and other creature lands

Grim Backwoods

Mortuary Mire

Blighted Woodland
