Savage Beating Discussion

Catalog9000 on Does anybody here do altered ...

1 week ago

I'm looking to get two alters of Savage Beating, replacing the Vulshok Warriors with a Minotaur. I'm running a Rakdos Minotaur Tribal deck in Modern right now and it is crushing my group, and I'd like the card to match the rest of the set.

I hope I posted this in the proper forum. If there's a better place for this please relocate as needed. Thanks :)

Nice build, cool alt art Kaalia of the Vast. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

You've configured something weird in your deck edit settings, you have Exclude colors WBR, should be exclude colors UG or nothing at all since you shouldn't have either of those colors in here. Makes your charts look wrong.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon although very cool, and a powerful dragon, his Infect isn't really going to help you with the general damage goal. You don't have the needed support for him Silverblade Paladin, Sword of Feast and Famine, etc. something to make the 10 poison counters viable.

Spellbinder is also very confusing, you have only 6 instant spells, and 3 of them Aurelia's Fury and Comet Storm and Skeletal Scrying will do nothing. So 3 targets is not enough. Also with Savage Beating I don't think it would allow you to pay the Entwine cost either, so you would have to choose a single mode (Extra attack phase I assume is the goal). Plus CMC 3 and Equip 4 is very expensive. I get that it makes the infinite attack phases though, and perhaps you goal is to tutor the combo. I would prefer to tutor Lightning Greaves to protect Kaalia of the Vast and get Haste.

Creatures look very strong, love the Magus of the Moat. Sorin Markov is a nasty piece of business too.

Lord of the Void or Exquisite Archangel could possibly replace Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, but with your Savage Beating he might? get there sometimes?

Anguished Unmaking is a good solution to many problems.

Hellkite Tyrant + Sword of Feast and Famine or an Aggravated Assault can get you attack phases. The Sword of Feast and Famine also is awesome for Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. A Mother of Runes can help him get through blockers too with the additonal protection from, the Sword of Feast and Famine does so nearly unblockable by colored creatures.

Aurelia, the Warleader + Adarkar Valkyrie can also get you there with any sac outlet, Ashnod's Altar/Goblin Bombardment, etc.

Cool deck. Like the flavor of it. +1.

Swords to Plowshares?

Sweet deck! A few suggestions would be to eliminate the lands the enter the battle field tapped, they slow the deck down. Kazandu Refuge and Rugged Highlands aren't worth the gaining of one life to enter tapped. I'd run Fire-Lit Thicket and Mossfire Valley instead.

Savage Beating, Lurking Predators, and Birthing Pod could be fun cards to add in too.

Another good one would be Savage Beating.

So, Xenagod loves extra combat steps. Simply loves them. Since his ability triggers at the beginning of combat, any extra combats you take let him trigger an additional time that turn. And since he essentially doubles a creatures power, that second combat time you're striking for 4x the damage. Combined with the first combat step, you're hitting for a whopping 6x damage with a creature that turn.

World at War is one of the best, as it has rebound, giving you two turns in a row of double combat steps for just one card. Seize the Day probably takes second slot, as flashback again doubles its utility. Savage Beating can be expensive, but is also well worth it. A 5/5, doubled to 10/10 with Xenagod, swings for 20 with double strike, then gets doubled again and swings for 40 in the second attack. That's 60 damage in one turn off a 5/5.

Also, I would look into adding a Mage Slayer. Damage is when you attack, so after your commander ability triggers. It essentially doubles the damage you deal, but the first half of it is direct, and can't be blocked or interfered with.

My first thought was Spear of Heliod pumps all your creatures and can get you targeted removal that people often forget about.

Second thought is Iroas, God of Victory. Menace helps when you don't have easy access to trample but what's really great is a you don't take damage when attacking. Makes Ovalchase Dragster even better.

Finally I think Paradox Engine really shines in a vehicle deck. Also it allows you to take advantage of cards like Savage Beating letting you attack with your driver's as well for a big finisher. There are tons of possibilities with this card.
