Shadow of Doubt Discussion

Asy1umRat on Rats in the Walls

I like Shadow of Doubt in the sideboard, for sure. As far as the main deck goes, I'll need to try out ~2 Underworld Connections and see how they go. I could see them being perfect mid-late game; same for Ob Nixilis Reignited. I'm not sure I'm running enough creatures/token generation to make efficient use of Altar's Reap.

One thing that I've noticed is that with Asylum Visitor on the field, Rotting Rats, Stronghold Rats, and Raven's Crime have been consistently netting me draws on my opponents' upkeep, so the advantage potential is definitely there.

I'm currently trying these changes:

-4 Duress

-4 Aphotic Wisps

-1 Rogue's Passage


+4 Raven's Crime

+3 Underworld Connections

+1 Swamp

+1 Dakmor Salvage

I've been play testing some Altar's Reap for card advantage. I want something I can use at instant speed, so Read the Bones and Sign in Blood aren't options right now, but Shadow of Doubt is a sideboard play. There's also Blood Scrivener and cards like Underworld Connections and Phyrexian Arena if you want to go the enchantment route. I've also had good success late game with Ob Nixilis Reignited. If you have a creature or two to protect him, he's a beast. You have a lot of one drops, so maybe replace a couple of those with some bigger threats would help smooth your mana curve?

Bloodghast, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and Phyrexian Obliterator are all very good creatures you should consider.
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for more consistency and some lands like Field of Ruin to destroy other lands are good options too.
Go for the Throat, Fatal Push, and Bile Blight are some other removal options.
Shadow of Doubt is some good search hate.
Sword of Light and Shadow is another good card.

It needs some low-cost control--there's not much of a plan before turn 3, even on a good starting hand. Isee Inquisition of Kozilek in the list and Bitterblossom, Shadow of Doubt, and Isochron Scepter in the maybes. How about some counterspells, like Remand or maybe Perplex for the Transmute?

i like the inclusion of Sudden Spoiling. i'd put a Bile Blight or 2 in the side if you could. love decks like these. how does Shadow of Doubt work for you in the main? has it served better than being in the side? +1

Dorotheus Thanks for the suggestion, man. Unfortunately, while Trickbind may work on fetchlands, it would not work well to stop them from fetching after I use a Ghost Quarter. Which is why I prefer Shadow of Doubt here.

It looks a nice choise for a single copy. I can discard Think Twice any time. It seems the only choise i have is to replace my Shadow of Doubt with it but i love this card so i wanna listen to your opinion too. What do you suggest?? Also thank you for your feedback!

That seems like a lot of Cryptic Command / 3-4 mana cost spells. Not familiar enough with the deck to know a good alternative, but seems like more cantrip effects (probably Serum Visions) might be good.

Very much a metagame pick, but I'm a big fan of Shadow of Doubt as a sideboard card against Scapeshift and Tron. Hurkyl's Recall could be a good sideboard against
