Revival / Revenge Discussion

fffume on Underworld Grave

1 month ago

I've been playing this deck for a bit, and here are some changes I've made (moslty just personal taste):

Taken out Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage x2, I don't really find any good point to cast him, and the discard focus of the deck is definitely the weaker part. On the same note, I cut out Vicious Rumors and Burglar Rat, neither are even decent when the opponent has a large hand (which they probably will). I keep Drill Bit as a 2-of, though, with it always costing when Underworld is up.

I put in 1x Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted, having 2 ensures we draw him a bit more often, and having him + an Underworld Dreams is pretty much a guranteed 6 damage (in addition to destroying a creature, and more damage if he sticks around).

Lastly, I think moving to BW would be stronger. Losing Mind Erasure and Opt sucks, but the options that White and Orzhov give I think will make up for it (Kaya's Wrath, Mortify, Revival / Revenge maybe, Idyllic Tutor to get Underworld more easily?). Conclave Tribunal has caused me pain more than once, so having Moritfy + whatever else is good for enchantment removal. I haven't tested it, but I think it would be better to be a few more control tools for this type of deck, instead of the mild filtering Opt and Mind Erasure give.

Take all of this witha grain of salt though, I am by no means a good deckbuilder.

Hellos, I think your deck is pretty well put together. Have you considered Revival / Revenge or Gideon Blackblade ? Gideon has gone down significantly in price and feels like he would be a good fit for your deck.

If you're looking for more removal, consider Despark , The Elderspell (sideboard), or even Witch's Vengeance .

Since you're pretty creature heavy you can also try Deafening Silence , since you can still play your Mortify on your opponent's turn.

I think you deck is going to get more tools in the upcoming set with the return of the "Devotion" and "Escape" (works great with Surveil) mechanics.

UndeadxPenguins on Mardu Aristocrats

I have my own build of Mardu Aristocrats & I am very impressed with it. It has a likelyhood of beating every popular deck in the meta. I would recommend taking out Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Midnight Reaper , Teysa Karlov , 2 Dreadhorde Butcher , & putting in a fully playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods & Hero of Precinct One . I would also recommend taking out Gutterbones & replacing him with Reassembling Skeleton since he combos off so much better & costs 1 less total mana overall to bring him back. Would also recommend Heartfire since it can win the game on the spot, as well as Liliana, Dreadhorde General . She is a win condition. I'd also recommend putting in a playset of Pitiless Pontiff since she is a fantastic sac outlet. A one of for the Split card Revival / Revenge is good too. Just some suggestions.

since you have this aristocrats theme going on in the deck as well you could try Revival / Revenge

Instead of a Stomping Ground , which I don’t see being of any use game one, why not run a Sacred Foundry ? It’d make Revival / Revenge easier to cast/cast-able on both ends.
