Phyresis Discussion

Davinoth on Saskia the New Blood

     TortillaConfetti: Thanks for the compliment! More than anything else, fun to play is the aim! I've recently discovered the potency of Infect with this strategy, and it's actually kind of ridiculous haha. The two most recent additions to the deck are Tainted Strike and Phyresis , and I think in the interest of not going overboard I may include one or two infect creatures as well.

     Chhris: I an affliction for Angels (maybe my favorite Creature type) and that sounds awesome! My Kaalia's Calamity deck is predominantly an Angel deck, and having the double thematic would actually bother me, as sad as that is haha. I should update the description for this deck as well, it is definitely beginning to take shape. 6W/3L over two slightly different builds. Had a bit too much mana fixing initially, but it's becoming balanced. Definitely recommend doing a build if you're already considering, Saskia is really fun!

Nemesis on Sugar Daddy

Hey, a fellow Nekusar player! I also play this deck fairly casually, so I'll be making some pretty budget addition suggestions:

Ebony Owl Netsuke


Guildgates and other tap lands if you're having trouble with mana.

Lastly, I don't see too much in the way of defense, I think you may be able to take advantage of pillow fort cards ( Collective Restraint ) or board wipes.

I like. Few suggestions for ya. Dying Wish and Rite of Consumption let you throw Skullbriar at people.

Forge of Heroes , Guildmages' Forum and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would give you more lands that add counters to Skullbriar. Karn's Bastion adds more counters assuming he already has at least one.

With Phyresis already in the deck, you might also consider Glistening Oil . Skullbriar's ability won't keep the -1/-1 counters and unlike Phyresis, Glistening Oil can be reused. Rancor would also give you reusable trample.

Forced Adaptation , Ring of Xathrid and Armory of Iroas other potential low-cost +1/+1 counter generators.

Hope you find something you can use in all that text. :)

I was trying to go for an infect subtheme, as getting Phyresis and Snake Cult Initiation on a Rotting Fensnake seems like it would be quite to power play.

God you have to add Phyresis in here, giving Nekusar infect before a windfall is hilarious
