Seal of Strength Discussion

Deftie on broke boy infect

@mal099 Thank you for your suggestions! :)

Actually, I've never thought of using any of those "block me instead" kind of creatures. I put together this list thinking that I'd either win in the first three turns, or scoop, haha.

I'm fond of Seal of Strength because I don't need to enchant a creature, but I'll think about adding Briar Shield in. I thought about adding Phytoburst or even a single Become Immense but I feel that the trample from something like Predator's Strike would be much more flexible.

Not sure how I feel about revealing my hand, but I do like the idea of having stuff like Scent of Ivy and Land Grant though.

Oh, and Invigorate is in the Maybeboard because it isn't Pauper legal. I feel that if it was, then Infect would have pretty broken and consistent T2 wins. But certainly, Giant Growth would get dropped for those in casual play. ;D

Have you thought about using creatures like Taunting Elf and Shinen of Life's Roar to make sure your other creatures don't get blocked? They're not as fast, but would make sure all your creatures get through, instead of just one. Which option is better probably depends a lot on your playstyle.

Phytoburst , Briar Shield (seems almost strictly better than Seal of Strength ) and Scent of Ivy might be good buffs for this deck. Maybe Aspect of Hydra too, but I feel like it would generally be weaker than it alternatives. Potentially some Trample, like Larger Than Life or Predator's Strike if you feel like your damage isn't getting through.

Here are some cuts you can consider:

All the cards I mentioned above in EDH doesn't make too much of an impact and not good enough in a multiplayer game. I saw a lot of pump cards but the thing is once you use it will be over, in a 1v1 situation those cards can be considered but you are going for a multiplayer game, so you want to have longer lasting effects or worldly buffs than single shot pumps.

You can start by trimming out those cards first, and also changing the mana base a bit as 30 lands it fairly low for a deck thats not akin to storm or combo, you can up it to at least 34-36 lands, I would say 36 for now until you start refining the deck.

Hope that helps!

Entomo Thanks for the great feedback. I like you're idea of adding in Llanowar Augur and Lotus Petal, and agree a few more creatures would be helpful. What would you think of replacing the Unnatural Predation with 2 Lotus petals and 2 Blight Mambas and Seal of Strength with Augur?

Pabs4444 I honestly forgot about a sideboard, what exactly would you recommend? My main concern is probably my Glistener Elf or Ichorclaw Myr getting killed before I can attack with them or my opponent getting a good blocker out turn 1/2. Any advice on how to prevent this? Thanks!

Shadow63- Mortician Beetle is a great suggestion.

EDedan- Innocent Blood and Bone Splinters are great sideboard cards.

Gattison- Nice to see you again lol. Wild Cantor seems nice. Also, Seal of Strength and Llanowar Augur seem awesome because not only does Bloodbriar get +3/+3, he also gets a +1/+1 counter out of it. I might do red because of the options. I’m glad to be a part of Team Brian! Thank you!

Hey, you look familiar! =P

I've been obsessed with Brian for a couple months now, lol. The most important thing I learned in all my testing though, was this: don't mix cards that sac themselves (like Mogg Fanatic) with cards that need you to sac something else (like Collateral Damage). Maybe that's obvious to you, but it took me a couple go-rounds before I picked up on that.

If you dig deep enough, you can find synergies in all colors. Red's got stuff like Goblin Arsonist + Reckless Abandon. Or you could find self-sacrificers, like Wild Cantor.

As stated above, black is extra good at sacrificing things, so Golgari is a safe bet.

Mono-green could be strong. In addition to the Eldrazi-token deck of mine you saw, there's also stuff like Seal of Strength, Child of Thorns (which you already mentioned to me) and Llanowar Augur.

Even white and blue can join the party with stuff like Angelic Purge/Lunarch Mantle and Perilous Research respectively.

My friend eyes2sky and I have been discussing this guy a LOT lately, so if you need any more help, don't be afraid to hit either one of us up! And welcome to Team Brian!

I like running 1 Sejiri Steppe with 2 Crop Rotation instead of 2 Apostle's Blessing and 1 forest. It can get damage through blockers and protect, plus you can put Bojuka Bog and Khalni Garden in the side for GY hate and eddict block. You lose a land to rotation but if it blocks an opponent's spell or gets your damage through its worth it. It also turns on landfall 2 more times, and you can use rotation to fix your mana, by rotating for Simic Growth Chamber you don't 2 for 1 yourself because your gaining an extra mana overall, essentially turning rotation into a land.
I think 2 color infect is strong and I have builds with it in red-green and gree-white. Double strike + double strike is really savage. And also haste is pretty cool too Reckless Charge. I also think there might even be a place for a 3 color infect deck. The last card I would suggest is Seal of Strength. It doesn't give trample, but your running a lot of evasion and it's a really good way to add damage while also protecting yourself from a lightning bot. Maybe you could drop down 2 Rancor? as my problem with rancor is that there aren't that many creatures in infect decks to take advatage of it like a 20+ creature deck would have, and it doesn't give any toughness so sometimes your just swinging in a 3-1 glistener into a 1/3 blocker and trading (obv not gonna atk there). With seal you can cast it ahead of time, than you have extra protection for cool sorceries like Larger Than Life.
I'm also working on a mid-range infect with Benefaction of Rhonas / Corpse Cur that I went 4-1 with vs R/W Monarch, Boggles, Tron, B/U control, and losing to a differnt B/U control list.

Good angle with the deathtouch! this probably works extremely well for control, but you might consider swapping a few of the weaker deathtouch guys out for some stronger mid- high range creatures. your control looks like it works but it also looks like they can only do 1 or 2 damage when they get through. try getting some more damage to your opponent early on, so you can use your deathtouch on their stronger creatures later in the game. there's a bunch of really good early buffs in green like Briar Shield Seal of Strength Predator's Strike and Giant Growth
