kingtuf on Glissa the Traitor needs some help

4 days ago

Any Glissa, the Traitor deck rude enough to play Mindslaver should be running Forbidden Orchard. These three cards form a perma-lock on a single player so long as you are not disrupted. Also, consider looking into some self mill. With Glissa, your graveyard becomes a toolbox/hand-extension that you really want to see filled. Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are all cheap dredgers that can turn one card draw into 2-5 in the graveyard. Hell, even Golgari Grave-Troll is cheap now that it's banned in modern. If you want to break the bank a bit, Life from the Loam and good utility lands like Strip Mine, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Cabal Coffers are all very happy to live in this deck. If you're looking for cards to drop, I know they can be fun and are a little safer to use with Glissa's ability, but cards like Nemesis Mask and Viridian Longbow are so, so much better off as instant speed removal spells like Putrefy or Windgrace's Judgment. Golgari removal spells hit a wider range of targets and many run at instant speed, making them far more versatile than the cheeky equipment shenanigans Glissa can do. Remember, all she cares about is seeing a creature die, she doesn't need to be the one to do it! Hope something here helps you out. I have a 75% Glissa deck that runs several of the cards I mentioned here and I have to say she is easily my favorite commander. Best of luck!

golgarigirl on G/B Nath Elf Tribal

It looks like you're running Nath just to access black and incidentally make elf tokens? Just wanted to check before making too many suggestions! I am also going to keep it budget-friendly ($3 or less), but you can let me know if you want some less budget ideas!

Both of your colors are really good at card draw, so we can definitely find some options. Since you have a lot of creatures, Shamanic Revelation is a mass-draw favorite. If you want to sacrifice your creatures at all, Evolutionary Leap can turn your elf tokens into real creature cards. Pair it with Moldervine Reclamation for some real draw power! Since you have a lot of bodies in your deck, God-Eternal Bontu can help you draw a ton of cards too. As can Underworld Connections, espeically with your elves that untap lands!

If you're playing black, I feel I would be remiss not to encourage you to run more removal. It's the color's greatest strength, and something green is not great at. Putrefy, Golgari Charm (which can save you from a board clear too!), Casualties of War, Eat to Extinction, even just simple Murder can save you in a pinch.

One final thing to mention is overrun effects...this is green's trademark win condition, and usually how Elves does it's thing. You make more creatures than your opponent, and then make them huge and swing! Overrun, Return of the Wildspeaker, and Overwhelming Stampede can really get an opponent who thinks they're safe from your little creatures.

ZendikariWol on Niv's 59 Dualcolored Hits

4 weeks ago

Bring to Light may be pretty good, Fight to the Death , when revealed, serves to say "wanna make a big attack? ban plan." Flower / Flourish or Safewright Quest is good two-color mana fixing. Putrefy and Mortify are both pretty strong. Thrash / Threat is pretty all right creature removal if Niv is out. I am partial to Archon of Valor's Reach - I just like the card. Armadillo Cloak is def all right if Nivvy's your main wincon. Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation are awesome, as is Hull Breach . I know one of my friends has a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck that would be utterly demolished by a Backlash . Bedevil is absurdly versatile removal. Blightning has a special place in my heart for taking any deck that doesn't know how to draw cards directly out of the game. Mostly a 60 cards, 20 life thing tho. Boros Charm can fizzle a removal spell, or it can make Niv into a really big meat stick. Burning-Tree Shaman and Cindervines are absolute murder for spellslinger decks. Casualties of War might help with those planeswalkers you seem to want to make disappear. Cauldron Haze is an... unconventional way to eat a removal spell. Clan Defiance is pretty all right, though it is an X spell that doesn't just kill a player directly. Countersquall is a good not- Negate , as is Dovin's Veto . Curse of Chains is a cool removal spell. Deathsprout is removal and ramp. A bit costly but Murder and Rampant Growth combined (minus one mana) is worth considering for casuals like me. Debtors' Knell can be a nice finisher.

Defiler of Souls is one of my favorite cards of all time. I just love playing colors and I like turning downsides into upsides.

Despark and Deputy of Detention (not to mention the D-Sphere itself) is pretty good removal. Destructive Revelry is pretty good removal as well. Dimir Doppelganger would fuck a reanimator deck six ways from Sunday. Divinity of Pride is a big, lifelinking threat. Djinn Illuminatus is sneakily very strong. Imagine duplicating all your removal spells as many times as you bother to pay for them. Domri's Ambush is even more good removal (this time creature removal). Dragonlair Spider is just quite good at making tokens. Dreadbore kills two relevant types. Dromoka's Command is sweet removal but not many of its other options are relevant. Dueling Grounds is Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist (or Mirri is Dueling grounds- whatever). Both are awesome pillow fort. Escape to the Wilds draws cards. The color-matters auras from Eventide and Shadowmoor are strong with Niv and also on-theme.

Fossil Find alluded to graveyard order... in a 2008 set... huh.

Identity Crisis just discards your opponent's... everything. Ionize is a pretty all right counterspell. Justice Strike , another pet card of mine, is just very a flavorful removal spell. Mindleech Mass is crazy cool. Mirari's Wake is a really conventionally strong card. Mistmeadow Witch is more expensive and more timely Soulherder (fizzles removal!). Mnemonic Betrayal is just a gem. Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic are both counterspells. Necrogenesis makes tokens and screws up reanimation. Palliation Accord is pretty freaking pillow forty. Pillory of the Sleepless , Anguished Unmaking , and Vindicate are more solid Orzhov removal. Plasm Capture isn't great, I don't think, but it feels like a card that has some wild stories attached to it, don'tcha think? Rakdos's Return seems like another really fun spell. I want to make a RB casual Rack deck. Silumgar's Command is a good card. Thought Erasure is a perfectly suitable discard spell. Trygon Predator is good. Wheel of Sun and Moon ensures that every card in your deck is just a few Niv triggers away.

And BAM, I've looked through every two-color card in Magic. There we go. That's what stood out to me, but I find that many players are more competitive than I am and therefore have different definitions of what a good card is. Feel free to take some or none of my advice. All would likely prove disastrous for your deck- a lot of the cards I suggested were removal.

5dollarMTG on Theros's golgari

Cast Down , Doom Blade , and Putrefy are all good, super-cheap removal. Necrotic Wound is especially good for a graveyard deck. You might get some other ideas from my $5 Graveyard Shenanigans, although it's not focused on +1/+1 counters.

Harkus959 on Slimefoot's Saproling Farm

In a two colour deck with green, I'd say that Rampant Growth is generally better than Arcane Signet , just because lands tend to be safer than artifacts when it comes to being removed.

You do look a little light on card draw. All I can see is Skullclamp so perhaps look at some sacrifice and death trigger card draw effects such as Vampiric Rites and Moldervine Reclamation .

Also, you've got some single target removal in Putrefy and Abrupt Decay but I'd add some board wipes to deal with when the board itself gets out of hand.

Joe_Ken_ on Prossh Token Hell

If you are messing around with the deck and including/removing some stuff then some removal pieces wouldn’t be bad to add in.

Artifact Mutation works well with your token theme and removes an artifact at instant speed.

Krosan Grip is a really good green removal card since it can mess with the stack a bit and can’t be interacted with.

Putrefy is good for versatile removal, but it does cost three

Beast Within and Chaos Warp are also good removal since they can target a wide variety of permanents.
