Scrapheap Scrounger Discussion

gatotempo on Scrapheap Scrounger in monored

My monored list needs a four-of two-drop, and i am wondering whether or not to splash black for Scrapheap Scrounger or stick with Viashino Pyromancer or Robber of the Rich. Any thoughts?

This is an interesting idea and I love how aggressive it can be! I do have a few suggestions:

I think Feasting Troll King is just not good enough. It's not aggressive, so it doesn't match with your Phylactery Lich or Herald of Anguish starts, and it also doesn't give you long-term value like Tireless Tracker or Karn. It's just kind of a big dude.

I feel strongly that, instead, Herald of Anguish is a great end-game beater since it comes with card "advantage" and other good effects, and can come down much earlier than the King or can be part of a double-spell turn 4 or 5.

I'd suggest cutting the Troll Kings and just running four Herald. That would make you an aggressive midrange deck with the ability to be flexible and remove early threats, more like modern Rock.

If you do so, I think you'll want more early artifact plays. You're especially lacking two-drops. I'd suggest cutting Weirding Wood - now, you'll be ramping with artifacts instead - and adding Scrapheap Scrounger or Stonecoil Serpent.

Finally, I'm not sure about Gods Willing and Anguished Unmaking. Pioneer is really aggressive; around 30% of the meta is RDW and White Weenies, and another big chunk is the Inverter combo. Neither of those cards are good in those matchups. I'd strongly recommend running mainboard Thoughtseize or, if you can't afford those, Duress. For the other two slots, I'd recommend a painless removal spell, like Fatal Push.

For the sideboard, I think you'll want some anti-ETB cards for Inverter and Gyruda decks, like Tocatli Honor Guard, and also some early sweepers for the aggro decks, like Cry of the Carnarium.

I hope this helps and good luck!!

I like the addition of Scrapheap Scrounger. And I've played enough MTG Arena to know cards like Thoughtseize really come in handy. I don't play enough paper magic anymore to give a good opinion on Cry of the Carnarium, but your explanation sounds good. I wanted to mention a small thing about instant removal and particularly instant removal that can target one of your creatures. If you need Delirium you can always target your own creature to help get it. And if the situation presents itself an opponent might not see that coming when attacking. Picture it, you Murder your own Deathcap Cultivator and suddenly their creatures are facing a 3/3 Gnarlwood Dryad and a 4/4 Grim Flayer. Just a thought.

Magic_Aids I love your videos!

I tried out Fiend Artisan in a Pioneer Golgari Mill deck, and it smacked face. In the times it didn't die before my next turn, I would use the Fiend Artisan's ability to sacrifice a Scrapheap Scrounger (because I can recur it) or a Stitcher's Supplier for extra jucy synergy to get either another Stitcher's Supplier or something threatening. (I will put the decklist onto TappedOut sometime soon.) It drew out removal so my bigger threats could get through, and for those who had no removal, they had a bad day.

I would love to see you try out a Sram's Cheerios deck as it's my favorite deck to bring to tournaments. (And I like winning with it.)

Keep those videos coming!

Gingerbrute might be a good addition here. If you have no creatures to recur Scrapheap Scrounger with, it kind of nullifies its greatest strength. I'd also consider Mask of Immolation. Granted, I play that card in a deck that is more equipment heavy, but it can still give you extra points of damage. It also makes a good target for Shrapnel Blast once you have used it. If you know your meta or the decks you are playing against Phyrexian Revoker could be a good two drop.

Did some playtesting with it, Fiend Artisan felt like a decent card, but not as amazing as I expected, Vengevine was MVP still.

I know 'dies to removal' isn't a good reason to not run a card but the free (re)casting of the other creatures felt more valuable and helped build a stronger board state in the early game.

I had situations where I had Glimpse + Fiend and deciding which is T2 and which is T3; too often T2 Fiend just got shot off before it got big, and with T2 Glimpse you can get a serious presence and hitting Fiend with Glimpse doesn't help.

I almost feel like 1 or 2 copies of Scrapheap Scrounger or something similar to help trigger off recursion from an empty board wouldn't hurt, and a 4th Glimpse too; it was such good fuel.

I like momo black aggro decks. Back in the old days I played a lot Black Suicide decks. On TappedOut I have a mono black singleton deck where you can find a lot of suggestion for your deck: Mono Black No More Suicide

Just some of the best suggestion:

For Carnophage maybe Diregraf Ghoul or Vampire Lacerator

Really good two-drops are: Oona's Prowler and Scrapheap Scrounger

But I would add more one-drops or some three-drops for better consistency of the mana usage of Dark Ritual Maybe Gutterbones, Bloodsoaked Champion, Master of the Feast, Dread Shade or Rotting Regisaur

Swilliam on mono black aggro devotion haste

4 months ago

Drag to the Underworld is good in anything exclusively black. With the number of one drops you are playing, you might consider including Shadow Alley Denizen for more evasion. For good two drops, Kitesail Freebooter helps deal with opposition boardwipes that this deck can be susceptible to. Otherwise some card advantage may be needed. A couple Pain Seer, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, or Blood Scrivener may be good for that. You could also replace one of your various one drops for Foulmire Knight. They are all certainly better than Scrapheap Scrounger because that card doesn't play well with the other cards that recur themselves and it removes from your devotion count if you choose to play any cards with it like Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a great way to buff your whole team considering you go pretty wide. Murderous Rider is removal on a stick to add to the copies of Fatal Push. Also, you have no way to recur Deathless Knight, so maybe look at other undercosted beaters like Pitiless Horde, Rotting Regisaur, or Master of the Feast. If you want to stick to the haste theme though, Yahenni, Undying Partisan is excellent.
