Night's Whisper Discussion

Whiskerbro on I Get By

I'm curious exactly what you like with black here. Gets you a mediocre exalted effect and a mediocre unblockable dude, but I think blue is just a much better fit, as it gets you more and better unblockable guys, as well as better exalted, and can let you dig for more creatures.

Now on to replacements for Mind Rot and Doom Blade. And I forgot to mention, Duress is good, but you probably don't want to be running more than one or two in the mainboard, as it can be a completely dead card in certain matchups. Snuff Out is a potential option that can be cheated out for a big life swing. I also like Chainer's Edict because it's very good against Bogles decks, but it does struggle against stuff like aristocrats or stompy, really anything that has Young Wolf. Hideous End, Grasp of Darkness, or Victim of Night are all options here as well.

Past removal, there are some utility cards that could be good here. Unearth is great cause everything's low CMC. Night's Whisper or Read the Bones can stop you from running out of steam lategame. Maybe you could just run some solid creatures as well, Chittering Rats provides some sweet disruption and has a fine body. I'd look to cut your Guardians of Akrasa as well, as the card is pretty bad. I think you'd be better off with another solid creature rather than running one just because it says exalted on it.

+1. Not sure if you like them, but Delver of Secrets  Flip and or Cryptic Serpent would work with how your deck is designed. It is a little pricy, but I must suggest Maelstrom Pulse (Not this art). It is really versatile. Fatal Push & Murderous Cut are pretty good too. Night's Whisper is a lighter alternative to Painful Truths if you're looking to take less and cast faster.

Hopefully this was helpful.

Scry 2 is truly a powerful effect, but you should consider if is that relevant for your gameplan. This deck seems consistent enough to dismiss the effect for a faster card.

As a MBC player myself, Sign in Blood is the better option, although I miss the scry in some matchups. I've tested Read the Bones and the cmc affect my gameplan too much, so you could try Night's Whisper during some time and compare the results.

Thanks for the input! I've definitely thought about running either Night's Whisper or Sign in Blood over Read the Bones. Between those two, Sign in Blood has a riskier mana cost, but can be used as pseudo-burn to the opponent in some cases. Either way, the reason I've gone with Read the Bones is that in the case that I wouldn't have the third mana to cast Read the Bones I likely still have other cards in my hand to play with my one or two mana, and so I wouldn't need to "reload" on cards yet. On the other hand, if I have no cards to play and do need to "reload" it is likely because I've gotten enough land to play my hand out pretty thoroughly. In that case, I can replenish my cards with the bonus scry (which is so underrated!). All in all, you may even still be right, because when I reload on cards, I would have an extra mana available that turn to play something - which is a key point. I'll have to playtest that some! Thanks again, and let me know what you think!

Have you considered Night's Whisper over Read the Bones?

Night's Whisper is a better version of Sign in Blood. Thoughtseize and Street Wraith as extra ways to hack into your life total are very important for a Shadow strategy. I don't think Cartouche of Zeal is a Modern playable card. The non-Shadow creatures don't make a lot of sense here - they're all too slow.

Im a big fan of Baneslayer Angel. Also I've been thinking and Disciple of Bolas seems good. You can play it and sac a 5/5 to draw 5 cards and refuel your hand for further Kaalia triggers. Other card draw options for consideration include Moonlight Bargain, Necrologia, Mind's Eye, Syphon Mind, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, and Skeletal Scrying. Hope this helps!

Victim of Night? Good sideboard tech for when your doomblades don't work...

Have you thought about Dark Deal or Night's Whisper to refresh your hand when it's full of nothing?
