Ruinous Path Discussion

GamingInTheDark on Mono Blue Control... Fast Enough for standard?

It's because i already have a dispel in my sideboard for the control mirror and the Jund decks i see usually have a 50/50 split between sorcery and instant speed removal. Yes they are running Fatal Push and Harnessed Lightning but most of them also have Incendiary Flow, Collective Brutality, and Ruinous Path.

I don't actually play this. I threw the list together to see what I would do with zombies as a tribal strategy and to see if it's viable at all. It's possible the deck need to splash to gain access to more cards. Mono-black has little flexibility. I see the deck being weak to more explosive aggro decks and combo decks. Transgress is too slow for Modern unfortunately but we can board into other more efficient discard. As for Ruinous Path, again, there's just more efficient effects. Hero's Downfall is strictly better. Dark Salvation shouldn't be underestimated. In the early game, it can take on most of the cheap creatures in the format. Late in the game in can be a win condition on it's own.

Hey do you play with this deck at all? If so, what is it weak against? It seems like it's a bit short on planeswalker defense and removal for things higher than 4 Mana.

I'm pretty new so sorry if I'm missing something.

Surprised to see no Transgress the Mind

I think Ruinous Path would do good too

Thanks angeldarkheart! Yes I do, and add in the negates. On that topic, I probably should mainboard them just never thought about it. I can probably sideboard Ruinous Path and something else to mainboard the negate which could strengthen the deck. Good idea!

Busse: Black specifically has Hero's Downfall and Ruinous Path and green gives you access to Beast Within, potentially Abrupt Decay and Garruk, Apex Predator if you really wanted to. Not to mention all the proactive discard black provides.
