Neck Breaker Discussion

JuQ on How to check conditions for ...

If a continuous effect generated by a static ability affects a creature while it is attacking/blocking, do you take it in into account when you check for triggers that state "whenever attacks/blocks"?

If I control Stonebrow, Krosan Hero and Neck Breaker. Will Stonebrow trigger if I attack with Neck Breaker?

My intuition tells me it wouldn't trigger because what you declared to attack didnt have trample, but if it works the same way as the "enters the battlefield" triggers, then it would.

I think Silverfur Partisan should def be a 4 of since it synergizes so well with your creatures.

I think some of the enchantment are either unnecessary or can be upgraded to enchantments that synergize with your deck. I would drop the Blood Mist, Gruul War Chant, and Gift of Paradise for stuff like Howlpack Resurgence and Full Moon's Rise.

Naturalize is also probably pretty weak here and could be replaced. Creatures like Solitary Hunter  Flip, Brazen Wolves, Smoldering Werewolf  Flip, and Thornhide Wolves can be upgraded as well.

Here are some cards that are budget friendly I would find room for:


Lightning Strike

Ulrich's Kindred

Howlpack Resurgence

Full Moon's Rise

Breakneck Rider  Flip/Neck Breaker  Flip

Duskwatch Recruiter/Krallenhorde Howler  Flip

Cult of the Waxing Moon

Instigator Gang/Wildblood Pack  Flip

For options that are above budget:

Huntmaster of the Fells/Ravager of the Fells  Flip

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip/Howlpack Alpha  Flip

Lightning Bolt

Domri Rade

Instigator Gang  Flip isn't standard legal (it was printed during the original Innistrad) and while Neck Breaker does a pretty good impression, it wan't quite good enough to make the cut. The same goes for Ulrich's Kindred, it's a cool card, but I'd rather have something else in the three CMC slots.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Purphoros, God of the Forge deals 2 damage anytime a creature enters the Battlefield under my control.

If I already had out Breakneck Rider  Flip, and at a later point he transforms into Neck Breaker  Flip, does this trigger Purphoros' ability?

Wildblood Pack  Flip >> Neck Breaker  Flip

Immerwolf can only be present as a 4 of, and has the problem of being kille by all the removal :/

What are everyones thoughts on Breakneck Rider  Flip? (for convenience sake Neck Breaker  Flip)

clayperce thanks man, i'll probably cut the arlinn's to a 2 of since that would make the deck 60 cards. one card im thinking about is Shrill Howler since it's power can just go over most cards with 3 toughness being key in standard, as well as Neck Breaker  Flip giving it more attack to bypass anything.
