Pain Seer Discussion

IlGuale on The role of vehicles

I forgot to link it in the opening, but this article is quite interesting. The list isn't much more than a prototype, but those matches show how competitive vehicles can be. I agree that Seth was lucky during various games, but the deck didn't struggle. I agree with the "powerful, but frail" line of thought myself. So even if the sinergy with Night Market Lookout and Pain Seer is sweet, i am trying to incorporate vehicles in a shell, instead of building one around them.

Why not play 2x Dark Confidant over Pain Seer?

I tested Pain Seer against Grim Flayer a lot, and while it doesn't give you the raw advantage that Bob gives you, it can set up your deck to where youre always drawing what you want, and it just gets really hard to handle once it starts being a 4/4 for 2

I think that's a fun idea to explore. I worry Garrison just won't be a good as Harvester in most scenarios. Harvester costs the same, has flying and sometimes lifelink, an extra bit of toughness, and crews for the bare minimum. Garrison and Pain Seer would be amusing in a more casual build. Thanks!

You know what would be amusing? Mobile Garrison instead of Aethersphere Harvester. Then, run Pain Seer instead of Dark Confidant, and get twice as many Inspired activations.

Pain Seer seems good here, its an abusable yet budget Dark Confidant

Some good cards that mono black usually like are Dark Confidant, Pain Seer, Gifted Aetherborn, Geralf's Messenger, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dismember, Victim of Night, Sign in Blood. Depends what you want to do with the deck.

You could become creature based devotion with a finisher of Gray Merchant of Asphodel

You could also become control with all the good kill spells and win with a late game Empty the Pits or planeswakers like Liliana of the Veil

You could also become a pain drain with cards like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Crypt Ghast, Night Market Lookout

You'd need to give more direction on what you want to do with the deck, or what cards you like, what budget you have, before I can criteque any more.
