Scythe of the Wretched Discussion

Have you considered Coat of Arms for this deck? Given the amount of matching creature types, it could really give a boost to your creatures' strength and toughness.

Also, for defense and army building, what about Scythe of the Wretched?

Hi. I came across your deck at the top of the front page and, having my own Olivia deck, had to check it out. I run Scythe of the Wretched myself, and it adds some flavor and some unexpected control to the deck that's a little scary when you run it with Basilisk collar. For more damage on the attack, have you considered Berserkers' Onslaught?

If you'd like to take a look at mine, here's the link. I'd like to see what you think about it.

Olivia bathes in your blood.

If you're willing to invest a little more in this deck, you can run the rest of the Sword of X and Y cycle. Umezawa's Jitte is nice as well, but quite pricey. The Kaldra set (Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra) is nice as well.

You also can try out Neko-Te, General's Kabuto, Kusari-Gama, Scythe of the Wretched, and Konda's Banner.

Cards i think will make this deck broken Scythe of the Wretched to steal the chump blockers, Blade of Selves to smack the other players, General's Kabuto will let you hit them without loosing your creature, Kusari-Gama will let you murder the fields, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Copy Artifact, Mirrorworks,and Sculpting Steel will let you copy any if you want more, Pennon Blade is another Sigil of Valor. These are other equipments i would consider. Also if you really want to be mean Worldslayer

Hostility. Equip Bosh with shit, make use of the actual damage of his activated ability; consider Worldslayer, Basilisk Collar, Grafted Exoskeleton, Scythe of the Wretched, etc. Jalum Tome instead of your jay tome. Trash for Treasure just in case, maybe Scrap Mastery if you have a hard time ultimating Daretti or want more reanimation. Pariah's Shield equipped to stuffy doll is cool, but isn't worth it solely for the combo. Whispersilk Cloak instead of your prowlers helm. Braid of Fire. Deathrender, Skullclamp. Heartstone, Illusionist's Bracers, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

Hey ComboCrazy, I did try Scythe of the Wretched a long time ago but I'm not sure it was the type of deck to make as much use if as it is now. What would you consider good cards to consider dropping for it?

Grave Betrayal has always sounded awesome, but it's never really gone off for me. It's expensive and my playgroup has a lot of enchantment/artifact hate so I dropped it as it felt like a 7 cost recursion spell for one creature before it was killed.

thx for the feedback.
