Seal of Primordium Discussion

clayperce on Troll

I'm not sure what price-point you're looking for, but here are a few budget options:

Your friend maybe has Liquimetal Coating and Extirpate?

Besides your basic Artifact hate cards (e.g., Stony Silence, Ancient Grudge, Nature's Claim, Seal of Primordium, etc), cards like Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle work well against Coating.

Extirpate is tough to deal with because it's got Split Second. Graveyard hate on yourself is an option though ... stuff like Relic of Progenitus, Scavenging Ooze, Rest in Peace, Nihil Spellbomb, etc)

Good luck (and skill) with your brew!

Seal of Primordium gives you an anti BloodMoon on a stick.

Seal of Primordium might be cheeper option than Beast Within

I don't think Solemnity is unbeatable. Both Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and All Is Dust remove the combo and I can play those out without tron because I have alternative ramp in my tron deck. My Aura boggles run Seal of Primordium It's a very cool deck. Near combos! I think your deck might need counterspells because I would think counterspells & Thoughtseize like cards might be hard on your combos. I always love to see home brew ideas. One of the local guys I know home brewed a Gideon control deck that can't loose because of the new gideon emblem and blue/white control/recursion. I can't beat him. It's great.

You can use cards like Seal of Primordium which you play proactively and have sit there specifically for Choke, Blood Moon, etc. You can also use Chaos Warp (as previously mentioned) which doesn't care about Blood Moon.

other than that, your best option is to just run a defensive counterspell suite. Cards like Swan Song, Spell Pierce, Pact of Negation, Force of Will, etc which are either very easy to cast, or free.

Another option would be to use Sneak Attack (which can be played through a Blood Moon) to cheat in cards like Reclamation Sage or your Manglehorn (though it can't hit enchantments).

Personally I think Pongify and Rapid Hybridization are excellent removal spells along with Reality Shift. Nature's Claim and Seal of Primordium are also pretty nice. Pact of Negation is also an incredibly effective counter spell.

If you want a cute combo that gives you infinite colorless mana, creature tokens, and card draw I'd suggest you use the Words of Wilding + Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp infinite combo.

Another cute combo is Diregraf Captain + Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar.

If you need greater consistency of combo pieces I'd suggest Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor Lim-Dul's Vault and Entomb since you have access to artifact recursion.

Also Blighted Agent + Cranial Plating + Lightning Greaves would probably be an obnoxious way to take out opponents. I'd throw in Volrath's Stronghold if it starts scaring your opponents into removing it.

Interesting enough you have a Kiora's Follower If you equip it with Illusionist's Bracers it will generate you infinite mana of any color since it can untap a land and itself as many time as you like. Throw in a Staff of Domination or a Helix Pinnacle and you win the game.

Another way to generate infinite mana would also be Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + Umbral Mantle which would also make herself bigger giving you more and more mana. You can then use all that mana to infinitely pump all your other creatures with Umbral Mantle as well or use that mana for Helix Pinnacle or Staff of Domination.

Another combo would Geralf's Messenger + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar which you can sacrifice twice to get 4 mana, reanimate with the mantle and repeat with each death causing your opponents to lose life.

I also forgot to mention if you've drawn enough cards Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix can also generate you infinite mana with Umbral Mantle.

Hope the suggestions help. Also, could you tell me how you got your music video to play automatically as soon as I opened the page? Thanks!

clayperce on UG Infect

As folks have already mentioned on r/Infect, Infect is in a really bad place in the meta at the moment. Fatal Push is everywhere, and things like Wild Defiance (which nerfed Lightning Bolt) aren't helpful. I'm also not sure it's going to get better, since I expect to see Solemnity in lots of sideboards starting in mid-July.

All that said, I absolutely love UG Infect, and still play it periodically.

I know 4x Noble Hierarch is way out of range, but IMO 2x Birds of Paradise (for the fixing) and 2x Cathedral of War (for the Exalted trigger) are a very good budget replacement.

I'm TOTALLY with albino_ninja too on the need for more Creatures. As is, you're going to have to mul' more than you want, and the Black decks are really going to punish you for that with their hand disruption. Creatures with Infect are best of course: Ichorclaw Myr, Necropede, Blight Mamba, and Plague Myr all have different pros and cons ... IMO you can't go wrong with any of them. And maybe 1x Viridian Corrupter too. Another option I've seen some folks use: Sylvan Scrying, which basically acts like extra Inkmoths.

One more thought on Creatures: Because of all our pump spells, I'm always amazed at how often the deck can win with normal damage. So it might be worth looking at something like Invisible Stalker or Thrummingbird too.

Finding room for those Creatures is of course tough. I'm not a huge fan of Groundswell for this deck (it's much better with Fetchlands), so that's a place you can maybe find room. And while I REALLY like having 3 counterspells in the 75, I usually only run one in the main. You may also find you can put some of your protection in the side ... I know we need a TON in the current meta, but you may not actually have enough mana to use it. :-)

Some potential sideboard thoughts:

Sorry for the wall of text, and thanks for reading this far!

Draw well!
