JakeBreake on Almost a Orzhov Zombie Tribal Deck

1 week ago

Cool deck, lots of good cards in here! I think the main way to boost the power of this deck is to make some card cuts and add in more of the all-star cards. That being said, budget reasons usually affect just how many of the all-star cards you want to put in.

Here's my suggestion: cut 2x Khenra Eternal 1x Bone Picker add 3x Lord of the Accursed, cut 2x Sandblast add 2x Time to Reflect

Fragmentize Oketra's Last Mercy Sandblast Skywhaler's Shot Stinging Shot

All these cards are not usefull on your deck if the opponent does not play against them. For example fragmentize will destroy enchantment or artifact, but not everyone plays them and you cant just cycle it away if you dont need it. These cards can be on your sideboard but no on your main.

Cat Deck GW Check this out if you need some ideas. It is not complete, since I have just used on it the cards that I already have. It will be completed, a week from now, so you will have a better idea of what I think.

SlyBlu7 on Draft League N00B, HELP!

4 weeks ago

Hey guys - just entered a draft league. They let us pick up 4 packs to start (2 ANK, 2 HOU) and build 30 card decks from there. I think I got the short end of the pulls. Especially when I look at the awesome (frustratingly so) pulls that my GF got, who is even more of a newbie to the game. Anyway, this is what I put together:

Creatures Frilled Sandwalla , Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Naga Vitalist, Dune Beetle , Wretched Camel, Ruin Rat, Bitterblade Warrior , Sidewinder Naga , Ornery Kudu , Giant Spider , Bitterbow Sharpshooters

Spells Compelling Argument, Gift of Strength , Synchronized Strike , Splendid Agony, Cartouche of Ambition, Torment of Venom

Artifacts Traveler's Amulet, Bontu's Monument, Oketra's Monument

Land Ipnu Rivulet, Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes,1Island, 4Forest, 2Swamp

The idea that I had was to go BG for tossing -1/-1 with Vizier, and having some creatures and pumps. Splashed U for milling.

What else did I pull? Garbage, I think. White was especially thin, which is sad because it's one of my favorite colors.

White Mighty Leap , Oketra's Avenger , Forsake the Worldly , Dauntless Aven , Sandblast

Blue Strategic Planning, Spellweaver Eternal, Labyrinth Guardian , Ancient Crab , Eternal of Harsh Truths, Tragic Lesson, Illusory Wrappings , Shimmerscale Drake , Striped Riverwinder, Open Into Wonder

Black Liliana's Defeat, Shadow of the Grave, Doomfall, Razaketh, the Foulblooded

Red Crash Through, Pathmaker Initiate, Nef-Crop Entangler , Blur of Blades, Open Fire, Pursue Glory , Manticore Eternal , Hazoret's Undying Fury, Desert Cerodon

Aftermath Onward / Victory

Land Sunscorched Desert, Shefet Dunes

Now, my list of cards is recorded at the store, so I can change the deck but obviously cannot add any cards from elsewhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't have featured Red in the deck, maybe just cut my losses and went RG to keep it simple. Can anyone help me out? It's fairly casual, but I don't really want to get my head caved in for the next two months of MtG.Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

I'm deeply sorry I didt know Sandblast was in the new set

It takes a couple months for all the new cards to get updated, like Sandblast.

Regardless of the legality of Sandblast, though, I'd cut it for 4 Time to Reflects. It's a combat-tied Path to Exile, and that's serious value there. You can cast it before damage is dealt and not lose your creature.

Day 1 I pulled a The Scarab God as my promo. I had a split pool with 2 ways to splash the god, a super-aggro w/b zombie deck with 20 creatures but no removal or a medium b/r deck with tons of removal but a wonky curve. I took the conservative route, assumed the format would favor midrange w/ good removal and bombs, and went with the B/R deck. Whenever I cast the god I won quickly, but I kept too many questionable hands, got mana-screwed or flooded in crucial games and wend 2-3.

Ammit Eternal, Banewhip Punisher and Sand Strangler (link broken) were the best creatures in my deck aside from the god. Open Fire and Puncturing Blow (link broken) are great removal.

Day 2 I pulled Torment of Hailfire which I dismissed as unplayable in sealed but others felt I had the card all wrong. I sided it in but never cast it. Love to hear more opinions.

I also pulled Gideon of the Trials and Overwhelming Splendor. I'm a fan of unfair things so I went white with black for removal and Apocalypse Demon which, as my only finisher, seemed playable because I had Steward of Solidarity and some embalm creatures.

This led to one of the best wins of my life. I was at 3 life with only Apocalypse Demon on board and my opponent had 10 life & 3 creatures. I had 8 cards in my graveyard and went deep in the tanks when my opponent passed his turn to me. Before untapping I sac'd Cradle of the Accursed for a zombie, putting a 9th card in my graveyard. I sac'd the zombie token, untapped my daemon and declared attacks, swinging with my 9/9. My opponent said "Uh... No blocks. I go to 1?"

I said "before damage I cast Sandblast on my demon." Match win.

I played against a guy with The Scarab God and that card seems completely unbeatable.

The only time I played Overwhelming Splendor my opponent cast Sandwurm Convergence the next turn and guess what? Sandwurm Convergence is still better when all your finishers fly.

I have a thought about splashing and deserts. In sealed the bombs are real good and it's not difficult to splash...unless you want to run deserts. They make your mana so bad, but the synergies are so good...don't try to do both.
