Any special reason for using Rend Flesh rather than Murder? or maybe Murderous Rider

Nice deck! though, were you going for simple? because that could change some of my suggestions...

Gonna take a break for now though. Let me know your thoughts and I'll continue looking at this later

counter spell

Counterspell instead of Cancel

Cryptic Command

maybe Pact of Negation

spell recursion

Mystic Retrieval

Shreds of Sanity

grave play

Sheoldred, Whispering One

Dictate of Erebos

Grave Pact

maaaaybe Necrotic Plague


Dissipation Field

potential card cut

remember, some things HAVE to go

Lingering Death and Rend Flesh and Chill to the Bone -- there are more refined solutions, such as Doom Blade and Go for the Throat Faster than lingering death and cheaper than rend flesh and chill to the bone. Slaughter Pact also could do the trick

Delirium -- if we're going for simple, this card misses the mark.

Red Elemental Blast -- cheap, and most often it is a blue spell that is the target. But this takes a counterspell slot and is pretty restricted.

Anarchist and Scrivener -- deck has plenty of less specific or cheaper spell recursion options

Yes. You only move to the next step/phase if all players have passed when the stack is empty (Rule 116.4).

In this case, here is what happens:

  1. Your opponent passes priority to you. You cast Samut. You then pass priority back to them.

  2. They pass priority--notice how they are passing priority while the stack is not empty--Samut resolves.

  3. Since the stack was not empty when all players passed, there is another round of priority. As the active player, they receive priority after resolution of the spell (Rule 116.3b).

  4. They then cast Rend Flesh targeting Samut. This is a legal action as they have priority.

  5. Priority is passed to you; you pass; the spell resolves and Samut is destroyed.

  6. They receive priority again; they pass. You receive priority; you pass. Since all players passed while the stack was empty, the End Step ends and goes to the cleanup step.

Hey there,

So, this question is based on a situation that happened last game night, and I was not sure at the time so I just let it pass by. I was playing my Najeela, the Blade-Blossom and my opponent passed the turn to me, and, in the end step of his turn, I casted Samut, Voice of Dissent and he Rend Flesh her. Can he do that before the end of his turn?

Methodical on Storrev Budget Druid

10 months ago

Azeworai I think underworld is a rough but optional choice. It would put the deck over budget and be one of the most expensive cards that doesnt revolve around the combo aspect. I think more mana fixing is needed as budget druid is just filled with tapped lands due to pricing issues.

Ruinous is too expensive mana wise and getting BB is probably difficult as it is early game. I would rather sub in something like Rend Flesh if going the route for a 3cmc kill spell that's budget friendly. 1 cmc ones and 2cmc are much better just usually pricier. Think Go for the Throat

Fireshrieker I feel like is going to be extremely lack luster. The deck wont be winning from combat damage at all and the mana fixing to get Storrev is rather difficult as it is. He is just there for a late game recursion but there are better cheaper options in the deck for that. Fireshrieker would be a dead card in hand almost 100% of the time I feel
