Murderous Cut Discussion

abby315 on Rona is maybe not bad

1 day ago

I've never seen a Rona deck either so I love the idea! So feel free to take these suggestions with a grain of salt, but I think they'll fit your gameplan. I'm including cards that would give you a self-mill subtheme, because you can play with your graveyard as an extension of your hand.

Whir of Invention - artifact tutor, seems good to grab your wincons.
Baleful Strix - it's just Good Value, Son . Stitcher's Supplier, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Champion of Wits. Fact or Fiction, Dakmor Salvage, - graveyard feeders on good cards
Murderous Cut, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time - since you only need one artifact that combos in your GY, you can use the rest for good Delve fodder!
Drown in the Loch - if you do add the self-mill strategies
Argivian Restoration, Buried Ruin, Fortuitous Find, Reconstruction, Scrap Trawler, Trading Post?, Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge? - to return good artifacts/Krark Clan to your hand if you mill it

Not totally sure on cuts because I haven't played the deck, but if you need help I can suggest some cards that look on the weaker side!

I agree that you could definitely use some hand disruption in here - if Thoughtseize is out of your budget you could look at Inquisition of Kozilek or Collective Brutality. The later of which pairs extremely well with Bloodghast.
Doom Blade is a little weak for modern - maybe consider stronger removal like Fatal Push or Murderous Cut. Go for the Throat or Victim of Night are also options, though not as strong in my opinion. Hero's Downfall and Murderous Rider fit the bill too.

Looks fun! Surprised to see Dismember in place of Fatal Push though - with all your little 1 toughness creatures, Revolt will basically always be active. You could run Faerie Miscreant to start the beats early, help keep your hand full later in the game, and make a T2 Spellstutter counter a 2 drop rather than just a 1 drop. I don't think you need the shadowspears at all in mainboard, but if you're intent on keeping them I'd drop to 1 of at most. Cyc rift is pretty weak for modern - by turn 7+ you should already have killed your opponent with flying beaters. Consider runnning countermagic or removal in this slot - something like Drown in the Loch, Mana Leak, or Murderous Cut. Quickling is also pretty weak for modern - I'd consider replacing it with something like Vendilion Clique or Snapcaster Mage. Insidious Will is fun, but is outclassed in just about every aspect by Cryptic Command. Hand disruption would also fit nicely in this deck, something like 5-7 total copies of Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and/or Collective Brutality.

These are all just suggestions though - you should play the deck however you find it most fun! If you want more specific suggestions on what I'd cut and what I'd include, feel free to let me know! Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

jakeelephant006 on my fav card from oath is back baby

If you're looking for budget options, you could replace Thoughtseize with Duress, Specter's Shriek, Despise, Harsh Scrutiny, Agonizing Remorse, or Divest. Even Brain Maggot or Kitesail Freebooter would work. Those also work as replacements for Thought Erasure. Dig Through Time can be replaced with Treasure Cruise or Drawn from Dreams. Fatal Push could be swapped for Murderous Cut, Doom Blade, Cast Down, Ultimate Price.

For the lands, you can always run cards like Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, or Submerged Boneyard to replace some of the pricier dual lands and Evolving Wilds or Warped Landscape to take care of Fabled Passage.

Hey dad. I think 29 lands is a little crazy, does it work well in testing?

I'm personally not a fan of all the super high CMC cards you've added. With 29 lands and only 6 pieces of mana ramp, you will basically never get to cast them. I don't think the added damage off Yuriko really justifies having dead cards in your hand. Draco especially, you'll never ever be able to cast him and even if you do he's super weak. I'd recommend something with delve, maybe Dig Through Time if you're willing to spend the money, or Murderous Cut.

I was also thinking about it and realized I screwed up the mana base. Cards like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are strictly inferior to Dimir Guildgate and Dismal Backwater, since the deck thinning off a fetchland doesn't matter, and you're not playing any landfall.

My biggest hangup is only playing 29 lands. I'm worried you'll get land screwed way too much.

Too many 1/2-ofs.

I think you want 6 discard spells, mixing Thoughtseize and Thought Erasure . You also definitely want 3-4 Fatal Push .

Drown in the Loch , Utter End , Render Silent and Murderous Cut seems like cards that are often pretty bad; I think you should either go all in on Absorb , or consider Sinister Sabotage or Void Shatter for easier color requirements.

Also - badly wants Narset, Parter of Veils , and some number of wraths.

Cheers!

I would highly reccomend Phyrexian Altar . You'll always get value out of it, and it goes infinite very easily. I'm assuming the deck was built on a budget. So you can do without it, but it would be a really good 20$ upgrade. I also really reccomend maybe dropping a few zombies for more card draw and maybe some one shot ramp spells. Good card draw/card advantage spells would consist of cards like Phyrexian Arena (10$ might be a bit much), Bolas's Citadel , Skullclamp (you NEED this), Night's Whisper , Fact or Fiction , Treasure Cruise , and more with a larger budget. Also really enjoy Murderous Cut and Snuff Out for prime targeted removal spells. Might want to incorporate ways of dealing with non-creature permanents. Good luck man!
