Plunge into Darkness Discussion

Vendetta is fun removal, Faith's Shield can protect your Experience, Plunge into Darkness to tutor, Wall of Blood to fix your life total.

This is one of those decks that really wants to be mono-white. Bone splinters and Bloodsoaked Champion aren't enough alone to justify the risk of dead cards. It also frees up slots for utility lands.

Now if you were splashing for a full hand disruption package, Sin Collector and all, thats a different route. The other interesting B/W humans route is Cartel Aristocrat/Zulaport Cutthroat. If you're really feeling like building a rogue deck you can abuse Plunge into Darkness Postmortem Lunge and Dismember to turn on fateful hour.

I'd mainboard path in place of bone splinters- it really is that good. With the remaining couple of slots from bloodsoaked, its worth looking at Accorder Paladin Akrasan Squire more Banisher Priest etc Devoted Crop-Mate is playable, if not quite as abusable as Order of Whiteclay. Fiend Hunter can serve as an extra set of banisher priest, with the upside of a better blink interaction.

Children of Korlis are surprisingly ok in the sideboard, often negating burst or forcing removal. Dauntless Bodyguard fills a similar role.

Check out other budget humans lists- they're the most populous tribe, and the options available are staggering, even if they do tend towards the thalia's lutentant package.

I'd consider cutting red entirely for a set of Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper, possibly still running martyr of sands, using black for cardraw to maintain the value of martyr. Although with all the token tools, an aristocrats package might work too.

I like the idea of making sisters super card advantagy and grindy. Something like Thoughtpicker Witch serving as a lock peice alongside some 1 drop spam and graveyard recursion perhaps, with ranger of eos keeping it running.

Still, I'll be interested in seeing what you come up with, black has some interesting tools like Plunge into Darkness, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Athreos, God of Passage, Garza's Assassin and Profane Command.

I hear you. I've run discard heavy rats prior to this before. Issue I have with running that slower, more disruptive style is that it just performs worse than other midrange options, with little by the way of upside.

If I'm stretching to midrange, Coco/Thrumming Stone seems strong with a disruption package, into a combo finish, but getting enough rats in the deck to reliably trigger it with all the support it needs to stick quick enough is a nightmare.

Sideboard/land setup is honestly 90% placeholder. Personally, I prefer other options to most of those cards (If only because of the sheer number of people preemptively siding in meddling mage/nevermore).

Surgical extraction always feels like a waste without a lab maniac package in this deck IMO.

At the moment I'm testing a junk flicker variant, trying to make use of instant speed discard and Zealous Persecution/ Ready / Willing. Plunge into Darkness feels good if I'm dipping more into graveyard interaction for an ad-nausiem style, but with all the hollow one graveyard hate its pretty rough running.

@AstroAA:First of all, thanks for your comment. I know that Food Chain provides mana able to cast creature spells, so i can't use the Mana to equip Skullclamp an infnite amount of time(I'll change the Description), i've have played along time with Ashnod's Altar & Phyrexian Altar but replaced them with Ad Nauseam & Plunge into Darkness 2 find Food Chain.

The Thing with Goblin Bombardment: i have played it 2 but replaced it with Viscera Seer for one reason: If i have no tutor or Food Chain in my hand, but enough Mana 2 cast Prossh, Skyraider of Kher one or two times + the Viscera Seer i can sac them @the End of my Oponnets Turn 2 srcy and maybe find one of the Cards. I think this is better then just dealing x Damage 2 one of them.

Thanks again for your Suggestions and have a nice Day.

I've made decks like this before and I must say that Bloodghast is pretty much a must have in them. I'm also a big fan of Plunge into Darkness, Smallpox Altar's Reap, and/or Devour Flesh in this kind of deck. Plunge into Darkness kinda fills both roles of Altar's Reap and Devour Flesh by itself, but they have their own advantages and disadvantages (no life loss with Reap, can target opponent with Devour Flesh as well as yourself, etc).

I've also been playing with using Voldaren Pariah  Flip for this kind of strategy but she can be a little tough to build around since she rewards self discard as well (cuz of Madness).

spicechicken, I'm still very much in the testing phase so Stinkweed Imp is a possibility. Not sure about splashing blue but I was considering adding Dash Hopes to the sideboard. As for Anger of the Gods, I could use Plunge into Darkness to dodge it.
