Murderous Cut Discussion

hoardofnotions on *HELP* Vampires first EDH deck tribal

3 days ago

Hey!

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

Blue_Flame on Phoenix's Zombie Tribal Deck

I dig it. You definitely have the right idea here. Some upgrades to some of the cards you currently have in here:

Plains/Swamps > Isolated Chapel, Caves of Koilos, Godless Shrine, and if you have the budget, Fetid Heath, and Marsh Flats.

Doom Blade > Fatal Push/Murderous Cut

I think going up to 4 Gravecrawler would help, too. Some decks have a reeeaaaally hard time dealing with it.

Cool deck. I really dig what's going on here. A couple suggestions:

I would 100% replace Murder in the sideboard with either Go for the Throat or Murderous Cut.

I don't know if it's good enough but Autumnal Gloom  Flip might find a home in here? It's definitely a sink for your extra mana when you need to put stuff in your GY.

Mandalorian on Grixis Control Take 1

Looks pretty sweet! Here are some other cards to consider if you havnt already!

Thought Scour can help fill the graveyard to fuel delve for cards like Tasigur, Gurmag Angler, and Murderous Cut

Desolate Lighthouse>Drownyard since it helps fix your draws instead of simply milling

Your deck has a pretty high curve, Cruel Ultimatum Control is a pretty sweet deck if you wanted to make it like that with big top end.

Anger of the Gods>Pyroclasm. Sometimes the extra damage and exile clause is very relevant.

non budget upgrades

Snapcaster Mage

Creeping Tar Pit

Kolaghan's Command

Cryptic Command

Damnation

Ancestral Vision

I really like the idea of this deck, but I feel like there are a few things that this deck has that slow it down. To start, I don't know if this is just a budget deck that you wanted to put together or if it is a deck that you want to legitimately see lots of play. The advice I'm giving is to help push the power level of this closer to high performing and top tier decks in the format, ignoring the cost of any of the upgrades. I feel there are too many 3 drops all together, I really dont feel Graveblade Marauder is any good. It feels really slow and while deathtouch is nice upside for it, it just pales in comparison to the other 3 drops of the deck. I get trick you want to do with Misthollow Griffin, it looks fun and it looks like there is loads of synergy with it and your deck, but, I think including the card is taking away from other possible includes or completed playsets of cards that aren't in the deck. Your mana base tells me that this is a budget deck, but if you want it to perform better, Opulent Palace, Yavimaya Coast, and some number of basic lands should be cut for fetch lands and shock lands. The other part why I think this is so important is that it would help you trim down your deck faster and it allows you to get to your good cards faster and more reliably. Another thing, it also allows Hedron Crab to be double triggered in one turn. I think the removal package is incredibly slow, considering that all of your removal spells, your 2 Autumnal Gloom, and most of your creatures are all 3 drops. This can make your deck incredibly clunky if you get low lands hands. Another suggestion is to find cheaper alternatives to some of your 3 drops so that the deck can overcome some clunkyness. I think a card that slots perfectly in the deck is Dryad Arbor that can be fetched for if you need a land, it can also be exiled to cast Skaab Ruinator, it generates zombies with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, etc. Grisly Salvage can be used as way to semi-tutor cards while filling the graveyard. Grim Flayer can be used as a faster and stronger version of either Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. A couple Search for Azcanta may replace Autumnal Gloom. Even a few small and cheap changes could just be to slot in 1-2 Murderous Cut for Putrefy, Thought Scour as additional self-mill, and Grisly Salvage for better consistency could go a long way. I hope some of these could help you. I also hope all this didn't come off as me try to take over your deck idea. Not every single part of the deck needs to be changed and I think you have a good starting place for a deck that could be something even more explosive.

Nordlys on Cries of Despair (Competitive Budget 8-rack)

As a dicarding deck lover and user, I feel free to post here. Hope you don't mind.First, I'll back my comment up by acknowledging you that I've built and played discard for many years way before Shrieking existed, and thus, I've commited the same mystakes as everyone (like trying Liliana's Caress and Quest for the Nihil Stone, for example) ...and no, I won't suggest those.

Good job with the budget deck, seems pretty legit.

I'm aware that you are aware of Inquisition of Kozilek being 3-4 usd is a budget possibility. And I do agree that a card like Blackmail is special because it can discard lands. But that job is for another star on your team; you've already got 4 copies of Raven's Crime (plus all the flood lands that will turn into more copies of it), Raven's got that issue perfectly covered.

Inquisition of Kozilek covers another issue, the one that concerns about disrupting the opponent's starting play. He'll never reveal his important 1-drops or 2-drops, because he needs them for his wicked plan. Inquisition is the hero that gives the villain a hard time or at the very least, buys us some time.

So, sumering up: I know Blackmail is a great card, but we (the users of this deck) need to get a pick at our opponent's entire hand to mock his best start. It's a luxury we cannot miss. Inquisition of Kozilek excells at doing so and can be backed up by one or two copies of Duress, Despise or Harsh Scrutiny, all of those great super budget options.

As far as removal, I pretty much agree with your choices. What I definitely add is a singleton Murderous Cut and maybe cut out a copy of Victim.

About Necrogen Mists which is in your "maybeboard" right now. I wouldn't even bother. 4 copies of Raven's Crime (plus two Delirium Skeins) are more than enough substitute for Liliana of the Veil's constant discard.

By the way, I love Augur of Skulls. I've played it even in non-budget, since Wrench Mind doesn't work around heavy artifact deck playgroups -which was my case for some time-. Delirium Skeins would have been a good substitute too, but I was running too many 3cmc cards at the time.

One last thing, I've just noticed you didn't sideboard any specifics against burn so I suggest considering either:

1- Syphon Life which also beneffits from Dakmor Salvage as well as Raven's Crime;

or

2- Nyxathid which can stand lots of direct damage, block those prowess little scum, and help killing your opponent since it's most likely that he'll tear our The Rack appart with their new toy Abrade.

Hope it helps!

Have you already played it? What do you think it is its weak spot?

I always like Mulch in golgari decks.

If you like big creatures that grow with your graveyard, you could also give a look at Splinterfright.

No budget for Sol Ring i guess?

if you need more removals you could try Murderous Cut or creatures like Fleshbag Marauder
