Quillspike Discussion

CaptSillva on The League Of Assassins

Cards you should consider are Blowfly Infestation, Carnifex Demon, Channeler Initiate, Deity of Scars, Black Sun's Zenith, Grim Poppet, Wickerbough Elder, Quillspike, and Devoted Druid.

Important to note that Devoted Druid + Quillspike is an infinite combo.

I think that is better than Quillspike so I with replace them with that.

Devoted Druid goes infinite with Quillspike and can add -1/-1 counters

Alright well in order to make this work, you're gonna have to spend some money for it. An infinite token combo is kinda what you want in order to win, and realistically you're going to want to run black green white instead of just black green. White adds protection and other good creatures to the mix.

Some cards you're going to have to add in:


Devoted Druid

Vizier of Remedies

Kitchen Finks

Melira, Sylvok Outcast

Viscera Seer

As well, in order to run all those infinite combos (I'm sure you can figure those out!!) effectively, you need to mana fix. Marsh Flats, Windswept Heath and Verdant Catacombs will be mandatory, as well as running Overgrown Tomb, Temple Garden, and Godless Shrine. Maybe a mix of other dual lands and a few basics in there too.

As for protection and control, you are going to need Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Abrupt Decay, Path to Exile, and Fatal Push. Sideboard can likely be worked out. That's the only way I see this deck working, though.

Quillspike+Devoted Druid also gives unilimited sneks if haptra is on board.

Phage the Untouchable should probably be dropped from the list, there are too many ways for it to backfire (Eldrazi Displacer/Oblivion Ring for example)

Carnifex Demon seems fun here, especially with Crumbling Ashes, Consumptive Goo/Fevered Convulsions.

Flourishing Defenses and Nest of Scarabs seem like good ways to flood the board with tokens in addition to haptra's ability

As it sits right now, you're completely open to removal and your CMC for the deck is nearly at 3 because of a few cards. In modern, you won't likely get those high cost cards out most of the time because your opponent will aggro your mana combo cards with removal or kill spells. So, you need a good back up strategy that can do a lot of damage without that heavy mana cost or combo reliance. Doing a solid Elf tribal here would help you out a lot, and you can keep Quillspike in the deck as a wincon with Rite of Consumption and Devoted Druid. You can just pump up Quillspike then use Rite of Consumption to deal lethal. If it doesn't work out and gets countered, the other Elves in the deck will still synergize and have a chance to win the game. Especially the Joraga Warcaller and Immaculate Magistrate combo. Then add Shaman of the Pack for a quick shot directly at the opponent. Imperious Perfect can help produce Elves and buffs them. Glissa, the Traitor can pretty much block ANYTHING because of her First Strike and Deathtouch combo. She can also be used to fetch artifacts from your graveyard, for instance.. say.. a Ratchet Bomb.

I really like this deck, maybe two Verdant Catacombs and four Overgrown Tombs would round it out better for those times you don't get the mana combo from your Elf early game.

Grisly Spectacle would probably be better off traded out for Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, or Doom Blade also.

I'm not sure that Conspiracy and Turntimber Ranger is a great strategy either. It's super costly and you might just be better off making an ally themed deck.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast will completely negate your mama combo that Devoted Druid and Quillspike create. If you can't give your creatures a -1/-1 counter then the effect that untaps Devoted Druid is nullified because it can't create the counter.

The idea you have is great, but it does need work. You could do more of an Elf tribal with Quillspike and Rite of Consumption as part of your Wincon.
