Ravenous Chupacabra Discussion

NeonEndymion: Sounds good...hopefully you'll get some good results from testing.
gonz0pl: Interesting idea about mana vault/monolith...the only caveat is that you'll be using Aminatou's -1 ability on them instead of another potential ETB permanent often. I'm still not sure about Draining Whelk as holding up 6 mana is not ideal for me, I guess I'll have to sleeve it up to test it myself. I might have to add my Mystical Tutor back since it works so well with entreat the dead and terminus. Thanks for the report writeup!
Sh1ftyL0ck3 You deck looks pretty good overall. My only suggestion is to cut some of your sorcery removals like Vindicate. I think Mortify can be cut too. This is because you already have removal on a stick like Ravenous Chupacabra. You should add Ghostly Flicker since it works so well with Archaeomancer.

- Stitcher's Supplier
- good replayable body to keep your graveyard stocked
- Viscera Seer
- great sac outlet to allow you to get enter the battlefield triggers again
- also just a great way to search the top of your library for an answer
- Dig Through Time
- like Treasure Cruise, just great card advantage
- Barren Moor, Fetid Pools, Ash Barrens, etc
- cycling lands are great with Life from the Loam
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- unconditional removal on a body
- Shriekmaw, Mulldrifter, etc
- evoke each turn for a good time
I would look into trying to replace as many of the instants and sorceries with creatures that do the same thing exect as an enter the battlefield effect

Thanks for the comment ancientskull.
If you use a flicker trigger on Flickerwisp, you get one trigger back. What I really need is more triggers like Cloudshift that return the flickered card before end of turn. I had Ravenous Chupacabra in my first draft, and just felt that it was too many 4-mana creatures that might be difficult to summon in the early game (with Gonti, Lord of Luxury).
I agree that I could leave all my enchantments in the sideboard and focus on flicker triggers and ETB effects.

As for what you might go down for them, I don't know your meta, but cards like Torment of Scarabs and Trespasser's Curse seem very matchup dependent, and would likely go better in the sideboard. Against a control deck, Trespasser's Curse will likely be a two-mana do-nothing, whereas the Torment of Scarabs would be good because it would force them to discard or lose life. On the flip side, against go-wide strategies and tokens, Torment won't do much because they'll just sac something low-value, but Trespasser's Curse would put you at a serious advantage.
Just some food for thought. Overall, I love the deck! +1!

ancientskull Thanks for your hint.
Alternatively I consider Phantasmal Image to replace the Caretaker slot.

If you are a "aristocrat" style deck then you have even more problems than a normal Karador deck would have vs Anafenza. Fortunately it sounds like your problem is just about killing a 4/4 creature a few extra times, so not sure its a deal breaker kind of problem. Just amp up the creature killing with anything from Ravenous Chupacabra to Languish to Transmogrifying Wand. Specialized commander stopping spells like Darksteel Mutation are nice, but once Anafenza costs 7+ mana to cast, it might just be gone forever anyways.

Hi Brownkid09. God that sounds terrible coming out of my mouth xD Anyways, thanks for your feedback! I think I like Banewhip Punisher even better here since it sacrifices itself to be used later. I feel like Ravenous Chupacabra would get stuck on the battlefield a little too often. I think I'll try out Banewhip Punisher in Arena and see how it performs. Thanks!
