Shared Animosity Discussion
2 days ago
enpc, you make a compelling argument for the removal of Unnatural Selection. I have to admit, i'm feel more and more convinced that I should swap it out. However, the Emperor example was a poor one. Allow me to submit another: During a game of Multiplayer (6 opponents I believe, including myself) commander I stole The Gitrog Monster and proceeded to bash that player with their own commander. The ramp and card draw The Gitrog Sliver provided was magnificent. It enabled me to play more and more slivers that in turn made me an absurd threat. All the other players at the table were also afraid to play their commanders for roughly 3 turns before I reduced that poor Gitrog player to nothing. So, again you can see why I'm hesitant to remove that card.
If I were to remove that card however, then for tutoring options there is only ONE choice here: Demonic Tutor. Amazing card that is overdue for a reprint. This is minor, but what frustrates me is that the DCI judge promo for this card is roughly $300. That as far as I know is the only foil instance of that card. I want it, but not at that price. The last planned high priced acquisition on my list is Sol Ring, and i'm kind of looking forward to it being the last one of this deck but I digress...I still do agree with you that Demonic Tutor would have more of an impact. I'll pick up a cheaper copy sometime and test it out. I won't make an official change until i'm ready.
DiabeticFire, thanks again for keeping up with my deck and i'm flattered that you would like to pilot a version of your own. In this post i'll address your card suggestions, as to my thoughts on your card choices i'll address those in a later response.
Shared Animosity - This card seems to be more at home in a aggro deck, however I still want to give it some consideration. My deck has a slant more toward control, but it is indeed a midrange deck. Perhaps this is just the thing I needed to help give me a more viable aggro strategy when some of my combo pieces get removed. I want to test this card out. For now, it's in the same lane of consideration as Diabolic Tutor for a possible replacement for Unnatural Selection.
Cover of Darkness - This decks is already packed with evasion in the form of Shifting Sliver, Galerider Sliver, Winged Sliver and to a lesser degree, Striking Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver. This card does add another option, but the evasion options for this deck are already very well populated and aren't in need of more options.
Unclaimed Territory - interesting that you'd compare this to Gemstone Mine when it's really a strictly worse Cavern of Souls. I do see your argument that not having to worry about mining counters it's primary advantage over Gemstone, it's draw back just simply doesn't make it worth it as there are plenty of other cards in the deck that aren't slivers. What could hurt more is not being able to play a Counterspell when needed. I'll think it over, but for now I just don't see it as a viable replacement.

Id drop Outpost Siege for Purphoros, God of the Forge. Dreamstone Hedron seems a bit expensive. I would replace it with literally any 1-2 CC mana rock (Sol Ring, perhaps?). Ruination seems like it might hurt you a bit. If you wanted to really keep Outpost Siege, you could take out Ruination instead, although where is Shared Animosity?I would also include one, "oops, i win!" combo in there. I've been running Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts. You could run either of the Bushwhackers instead though.
Some additional cards I'd consider removing- Battle Squadron - To expensive! Lightning Crafter - Expensive and why? Blighted Gorge - I think Ramunap Ruins might be a bit better or maybe Scavenger Grounds.
Those are my thoughts for now.

So I have spent a while doing some research, and I have found a few things that I want to pick your brains about.
Third is Cover of Darkness. It makes the entire brood extremely difficult to block, which could come in handy if Sliver Queen or some other combo piece gets exiled and you need to win through commander damage or combat damage.
Urza's Incubator Gives a cost reduction of for only to cast. Seems great to me.
Also, I built my own version of this deck. I do not have the original duals, so I replaced them with the Shadowmoor/Eventide filter lands. In addition, I made the following substitutes for budget reasons. (I tried to get each substitution to fill a similar role but I just dont have the library manipulation cards, so I went with ramp and card draw)
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Love The Locust God - cool list!
I'm working on a deck over at Revenge of the Nibblers. If it'd be helpful, please feel free to take a look and see if there are any useful cards.
Impact Tremors and Altar of the Brood might be fun to test as pay-offs for the infinite Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp combo. Shared Animosity is a card you can use to replace a lot of other anthem effects and free up space for big draw and burn spells like Invoke the Firemind, Distant Melody, Dogpile, Keep Watch, andRoar of the Crowd. Kindred Discovery can also be a good finisher if you have combo pieces in play that kill your opponents before you draw out your deck.
It might also be helpful to change your 11/11 split between Islands and Mountains. It looks like your color wheel wants more blue sources.
My build is much more group-hug in terms of card draw since that helps with politics in my playgroup, and I am somewhat wheel-adverse, so I'm happy to see all the different ideas at play in your list.

Have you ever tested with Kilnmouth Dragon (seems broken here), Rimescale Dragon + snow-covered lands (too expensive, maybe?), Dogpile, or Roar of the Crowd? Maybe the new Shared Animosity from Explorers of Ixalan (would still keep the list under $50)?
Have fun brewing and playing!

I would highly recommend trying to find room for Phage the Untouchable because you can cheat her in with conspiracy to one shot someone. Other lil funny jank card is Harmless Offering. Worst case, you donate someone behind a killbot and then could play bounce around the deathball. Best case, you replace all their creatures with killbots after donating them conspiracy. Also same with blades of velis vel or Endless Whispers. I have a couple other really good cards on my phone at home. Also Mycosynth Golem and that artifact that gives all your non artifact spells improvise. Inspiring Statuary or whatever it is called and storm out with free killbots. Also you could stand to make it really suck for them to kill your critters with Marionette Master and Pia's Revolution. Also Shared Animosity and Thrumming Stone and the real allstart Secret Salvage. I think Mary O'Kill has real potential to get ridiculous

KillJoyChief: It is a ton of fun to play!
I spent a lot of time working on finding a balance of buffs that didn't make me leery of sacrificing Goblins. I think the biggest things that helped with that was Raid Bombardment and Shared Animosity. Goblin Chieftain and Goblin King do a good job of making a few tokens feel more impactful, but Bombardment and Animosity manage to do it without making them feel indispensable.
I'm really happy with where the deck has ended up, as it is really rare that I don't have a huge impact on every game, even the ones I don't win.
