Nemesis of Mortals Discussion

Tehlu on Splinterfright's stroll through the boneyard

2 days ago

I know and Shriekmaw perfomed nicely in the match I played. I am thankful for that suggestion. Korozda Guildmage would be interesting to keep in the battlefield the power of a Splinterfright that gets targeted to be destroyed... I will think about it. But as Ghoultree, even though it is better, I don't think it would be too different. So I will keep the Nemesis of Mortals, for now.

Thank you once again, PraetorDragoon!!

Tehlu, you aren't going to cast it for 5 mana that often. Most of the time, you cast it for 1B using it's Evoke. Sure, it will die when it enters the battlefield, but that isn't that terrible isn't it? And in case you ever hardcast it, you can enchant it with Nighthauler to push some Fear damage through.

I am also a fan of Korozda Guildmage. Intimidate helps the bigger Boneyards, and sacrificing them for many Saprolings is useful at times too. I do recommend running Ghoultrees over Nemesis of Mortals A bit more expensive initially, but a flat 10/10 is better than spending mana twice.

@Cai_Zer. Thanks for the comment and +1. I did consider Boneyard Wurm but went with Nemesis of Mortals in case my graveyard gets sacked. It would be great to scavenge like Splinterfright if I was going that route.

keevel on Advice on Building deck for ...

Do not pay attention to the guys recommending single cards that would cost more than your deck. Learn what you like about each color and then play and get creative there. Later you can invest in the powerful and creative thing you know you like if you want to.

General deck building advice:

  • Decks with less than 20 lands cannot consistently cast spells costing more than 3 mana.

  • Decks with higher mana cost spells will often have 23-25 (or more!) lands to cast everything consistantly

  • Black is good at - Discard and removal

  • Green is good at big cheap land creatures and mana ramping

  • Black and Green both have card draw card advantage options

  • More copies of the same card (for 4 of) or same effect (for up to 8 of) for more consistency. That way you get to decide if you want more or less creature removal, creatures, discard, ramp.

  • Black and green often intersect around the graveyard (counting things in it for Power or Toughness, returning things from it)

  • Focus on the color strengths you will break out of this later as you get to enjoy deck building, but starting here is good)

  • Against Control you can either do alot of 1 Mana discard or switch to all small undercosted creatures

Choose your own Adventure - These are only beginning suggestions to explore specific aspects or these two colors

Discard: - Despise - Duress

Removal: - Go for the Throat- Doom Blade- Dismember

Mana Ramp: - Arbor Elf - Elvish Mystic

Card Advantage/Card Draw:- Elvish Visionary- Eternal Witness- Courser of Kruphix- Underworld Connections- Phyrexian Arena- Night's Whisper

Combat Tricks- Blossoming Defense- Supernatural Stamina

Filling the Graveyard- Satyr Wayfinder- Grisly Salvage

Cheap Graveyard Shenanigans- Nighthowler- Nemesis of Mortals

Do you want big graveyard or small graveyard in the cube at

big graveyard: Putrid Imp, Stitch Together, Boneyard Wurm, Grizzly Fate, Werebear, Centaur Chieftain, Metamorphic Wurm, Treacherous Vampire, Nemesis of Mortals, Tooth Collector, Moldgraf Scavenger, Obsessive Skinner, Undergrowth Scavenger, Nezumi Graverobber, plus a lot of recursion

Small graveyard: Gurmag Angler, Hooting Mandrills, Necrogenesis, Murderous Cut, Sultai Scavenger, Psychatog

All in all it's better to either use the graveyard or let it sit there to avoid nonbos

always good to see more snakes, i mean if you planned on sacrificing creatures Nemesis of Mortals could combo excellently.

Thanks for the suggestions! I love Nighthowler, as he is essentially recursible aura which gives a downright ridiculous powerboost in a mid to lategame multiplayer match. I can easily see him being a finisher here. Definitely going in the deck.Ghoultree also seems very viable, as i imagine him being a 10/10 for G most of the game. Magister of Worth should already be in here somewhere, i think in the reanimation category. I can see the Ishkanah, Grafwidow + Spider Spawning combo working, but i feel like it's a little too situational? Do you think i'll be able to pull it off (more or less) consistently? Liliana's Elite could also be pretty strong, but compaired to Splinterfright it's really missing that trample. I'll think about it though. Don't know about Nemesis of Mortals. Four green mana is not easy to pull off consistently in a 3 colour deck, and again, it seems to be missing trample.Anyway thanks for the suggestions, do you have any ideas on what i should take out? :)
