Pestilence Discussion

Pestilence you should look into as a way to control the board.

You could solve the deathtouch problem with the archetype of finality I see in your maybeboard. Also, Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a great deathtoucher.

Oh, btw: Pestilence and Pyrohemia.

Mythwind on Ajani Steadfast Emblem

1 month ago

I have a friend that in a game was able to ultimate Ajani Steadfast and get the emblem "If a source would deal damage to you or a planeswalker you control, prevent all but 1 of that damage."

So when I attacked with two creatures 2/2 that both had double strike, unblocked, I expected he would agree I dealt 4 damage total at end of combat... but he argues that they were only two sources and that it was 2 damage total.

I mentionted that first strike and normal combat damage were two different instances of damage, and that the emblem would apply to each damage instance... but he was firm ... saying it was by source... that even if I had Pestilence that I could only do 1 damage if I activated it multiple times....

Who was right?

Dracoson on Best Thoughtsieze variant for mono-B?

It's meta dependent of course, but I've always favored 4x Wrench Mind Main Deck (and 4x Chittering Rats) with 4x Duress Sideboard. As Boza says mono black rarely has a problem with creatures. That diminishes the need for something like Divest. I also run Pestilence and Tendrils of Corruption, so I want to keep making my land drops later in the game, or else I would probably run 2x Raven's Crime

Gleeock - Yeah, thankfully it's Friday and I'll have some more time to be able to give this deck a critical look this weekend! Currently looking at Pestilence, Pyrohemia, Neheb, the Eternal, Crawlspace, Diabolic Intent and Chain Reaction for cuts and looking at Blasphemous Act, Fraying Omnipotence, Dismember, Bloodchief Ascension, Master of Cruelties, Virtus the Veiled and Tree of Perdition for adds. Not 100% sold on any of these yet; but they're all strong considerations!

I see now! I LOVE that idea. I actually glossed over those two cards when I saw your deck the first time around, now I wish Xantcha was Jund. The way that you're running your deck is initially how I was planning on building mine. I just can't guarantee that they'll have enough creatures to attack with and there don't seem to be a lot of cards in Rakdos that give your opponents creatures (for a good deal); I've counted maybe 5 or so. I think redirect spells are a great addition to your deck, whereas I think my deck isn't built to utilize them to their potential.

Jimmy_Chinchila For some reason I didn't even give these cards a second thought! I was too hyperfocused on the group slug aspect of the deck to really even consider a lot of the solid Rakdos damage dealers on their own. I think I'll shy away from Malignus because I don't have any way of protecting it, giving it haste, or giving it any sort of evasion. At 5 mana, it's a pricy investment considering all that could go wrong. The other three, on the other hand, I really like and am strongly considering adding to the deck. Virtus the Veiled has the same issues as Malignus, but at 3 mana it feels much more reasonable to include. Tree of Perdition doesn't care about blockers, which is a wonderful upside. And Sorin Markov might as well be a sorcery since you can activate it as soon as it comes down. I think I'll try and order Tree & Virtus and hold off on Sorin at the moment because of the price, but he is a strong consideration for the deck. Thank you!
