Murderous Cut Discussion

Perhaps cutting a few remands and adding in more removal, say Murderous Cut or more Fatal Push would be good as azcanta would be taking up your turn two play which hurts the usefulness of the remand spell.

I have to respectfully disagree.
Packing even more removal that is dead against a deck's win conditions and removing what was able to target them, is not very viable, if you want to actually beat the deck.
yes fatal push can kill the Birds of Paradise more reliably than Murderous Cut, but you run 12 removal in all.

Thus there will be very few removal drawn, and its questionable to waste them on birds, if you lose to titans.

I mean this is the cost of Fatal Push & Abrupt Decay that i always warned about. And for some reason people think i am an idiot - well i probably am, but probably not for this reason.

Tl;Dr Don't bring even more dead cards to the table, that is a silly idea, if you want to improve a matchup

I dont play a lot of modern but Murderous Cut seems like the wrong choice. You really want removal that is active t1 so you can hit their mana dorks. I would play more Fatal Push, Abrupt Decay or Dismember before that. decay is nice because you can hit their blood moons with it. However, you may just want a hard counter for that instead since itll stop Stone Rain

In your deck I think Murderous Cut would be good since you run 4x Thought Scour.

How about a singleton Bile Blight instead of Sorrow?

What about Murderous Cut? What do u guys think of that compared to Go for the Throat

Also, I dont really see Drown in Sorrow being usefull in that matchup. Id be paying 3 mana to kill 1 arbor elf, 2 if Im lucky. It would be worth ot to kill 2 but I cant count on that happening

May I suggest Courser of Kruphix, it's like a Dark Confidant, but less expensive ! And some removals like Murderous Cut, Duress and Despise. If you want to put another 20$, you can go for Scavenging Ooze, Path to Exile, Inquisition of Kozilek.

AND!!! Lingering Souls Really cheap and good!

foxinsox Tasigur, the Golden Fang is indeed good, and I for sure love it's ability, but unfortunately I don't have the two green mana, or the two blue. I never really have a hard time getting the extra one mana for Gurmag Angler. I will look into Murderous Cut!

Love the concept. Does Tasigur, the Golden Fang have a place for the long game? Murderous Cut could also be useful for the sideboard.
