Murder of Crows Discussion

WalkingIllusion: I'm already running most of those combos, if you look in the "Win Conditions" section of the deck description :) I'm running Murder of Crows already, but I prefer to use Altar of Dementia/Phyrexian Altar in place of Blasting Station. Not to mention Skullclamp+ Altar, or Kindred Discovery haha.

Thanks for your comment! You're welcome to upvote the deck if you think it's solid ;)

I feel like having the near infinite combos that include your commander should be a must for the commander but I've never played this commander out myself.

Just in case if you don't know it's The Locust God + Blasting Station + Murder of Crows or Quicksmith Spy.

It'll be humorous if you could use Altar of the Brood or Sphinx's Tutelage to mill out your opponents.

Besides that your deck looks very solid!

cracks knuckles Okay, let's do this thing.

You know that I'm going to be biased towards running him as a combo-centric general. However, I'll try to stay on the track of a combat-based deck...

Okay, first the cuts. I don't think that Archetype of Imagination, Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, Runehorn Hellkite, Sprite Noble, Incendiary Command, Spellbook, Thunderstaff, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Contested War Zone, or Hearth Charm do enough work for you to be worth a slot. Generally speaking, I would shoot for boosts higher than +1 to your creatures (like Coat of Arms).

Burn at the Stake could do a lot of work here. You're in danger of overextending into a board wipe, which suggests cards like Eldrazi Monument. Forgotten Creation is a fantastic repeatable draw source that will keep giving you advantage as long as you control The Locust God. You do need to protect him, however, as he is your primary source of tokens in this list. Lightning Greaves is a must for this purpose. If you play in a meta with a lot of draw, Plagiarism is cute (and dirty, if you cast it on the same turn as one of your wheels. Finally, Alhammarret's Archive allows you to "double dip" on all of your draw effects, which can be fantastic.

If you want to exclude infinite combos altogether, Goblin Bombardment currently goes infinite with Murder of Crows. I would, however, add one more infinite combo to your deck: Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine. I always include at least one infinite combo; it gives me a way to win when I'm desperate.

And finally, you might want some more ramp; it's tricky building an aggro deck when your best producer of tokens only comes down once you have 6 mana.

Happy deckbuilding! I hope this helps ;)

Built the Locust God myself as one of my decks and love how it runs. One of the MVP's in my deck is Opposition if I can get the invocation for it i'll grab it. Just adds so much "nope" to the deck. All the wheel effects are very important, this is the kinda deck where you should not be attached too much to what's in your hand cause you'll get a new fresh one very soon plus all the wheel effects let you get combo pieces you need assuming you're playing them at the right tempo.

I see you do have a copy of Murder of Crows, it combos nicely with Ashnod's Altar and you'll draw into a Laboratory Maniac for sure, no tutors needed. Cast the Laboratory Maniac and continue the combo, won the game tons like this.

Gamered: I haven't had to play against it yet, so if I end up running into it I'll get back to you. But I think I should be fine:

1) I'm running 4 cards that can directly remove it (Snapback, Mystic Confluence, Chaos Warp, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor).

2) Many of my combos don't rely on drawing multiple cards at one time. Murder of Crows and Kindred Discovery draw 1 repeatedly, as does Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind+Mind Over Matter. Skullclamp+Mana Echoes still works.

3) It actually enables me to infinite combo if I control Consecrated Sphinx. In fact, it lets me deck them in the process, haha.

4) If worst comes to worst, I can still counter it :)

Goblin Bombardment combos with Murder of Crows for infinite damage as long as kozilek is not exiled. Personally i have had more success with Tears of Rage than with Rites of Initiation. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is also another card that has over performed in my deck.

God-Pharaoh's Gift and Gate to the Afterlife could be good.

Murder of Crows can help fill your graveyard.
