Skyshroud Cutter Discussion

Piglord98 on Reverse Lifegain

I love how you made this deck, seems like it would be a very enjoyable play. Now i'm not trying to me mean in any way by saying this but I have some card ideas that might make it better. First Skyshroud Cutter could help get some free damage for free if you got a forest. Now I know that one might not be too helpful but that's up to you. Second False Cure a more reliable card to combo with the cards you have the life would still technically go through thus letting your other cards dealing with health work as well. Lastly The card I most recommend Beacon of Immortality which can not only combo with some of your cards to cause instant death to a player, it goes back in your deck to do it again. I can really like what you did with this anti life idea hope my suggestions help. I look forward to hearing your response. Definitely worth an upvote, just need to fix that land situation.

False Cure is a great idea. "The Cure" is a legacy aggro/combo deck similar to infect which wins by gaining life for the opponent. The pivotal cards are:

False Cure, Tainted Remedy - key effect
Kavu Predator - pivotal creature for the deck.
Skyshroud Cutter, Invigorate, Reverent Silence - free spells that gain/lose life for the opponent.

Anything else is optional. Some lists splash white for Swords to Plowshares, others play Dark Confidant to normilize draws and yet others splash blue for countermagic and Delver of Secrets  Flip.

Nettle Sentinel + Banishing Knack or Retraction Helix + Skyshroud Cutter + Essence Warden = Turn 2 infinite life.

This will give your Opponent more Life than yourself.. replace Skyshroud Cutter with Ornithopter or Phyrexian Walker

This should all be Highlander Legal

  • Engines / Power Cards:

Yawgmoth's Will & Magus of the Will

Past in Flames

Glimpse of Nature (With all the free creatures you have atm)

Carnival of Souls (Also very nice with Free Creatures)

Ashnod's Altar (Same Reason)

Bridge from Below

Anger (Good with Bridge and as a Second wincon if reanimationg all you stuff with the angel is not enough)

  • Mana:

Songs of the Damned

Summoner's Pact (for Elvish Spirit Guide / Tinder Wall)

Dryad Arbor (Also a creature for Dread Return)

Magus of the Vineyard (You already have the Enchantment, so why not)

Green Sun's Zenith (Can search up Tinder Wall / Dryad Arbor / Magus)

Nature's Lore

Lotus Bloom

Mox Opal

Infernal Plunge

Energy Tap (Looks a little silly, but could do some work)

Metamorphosis (Similar to Energy Tap)

Sacrifice (Also Similar)

Rite of Flame

Orcish Lumberjack

  • Tutoring:

Gamble

Enlightened Tutor

Entomb

Traverse the Ulvenwald (Maybe too Fancy)

Infernal Tutor (Needs more of discard outlets to work)

Demonic Tutor

Dredge Cards like Golgari Grave-Troll Stinkweed Imp Golgari Thug

Phantasmagorian

Tolarian Winds

Call to the Netherworld

Skyshroud Cutter

  • Protection:

Cabal Therapy

Ichorid

Bloodghast

  • Wheels:

Wheel of Fortune

Timetwister (Good with fast mana, bad with gy stuff)

Day's Undoing (Same as Timetwister)

Great suggestions people! I'll look to add some of them soon. :)

Hey, fatti97, it is such a great quote! Lol.

Skyshroud Cutter isn't modern legal unfortunately. I can see why it would work well with Tainted Remedy though. :)

My stepdad runs Skyshroud Cutter in his Tainted Remedy deck. It's rare, but I've seen him have 4 of them in his hand and just kill an opponent outright like that.

Also, it only gives you one turn to kill your opponent. So, to combo off, you have to spend BB on False Cure AND have enough healing to finish the game AND have enough mana left to play all those spells. If you miss your mark on that one turn, you have effectively done nothing and therefore have probably lost the game.
Yes, it gets around removal that Tainted Remedy is vulnerable to, but the downside is just nowhere near worth it. Maybe (MAYBE) it's worth playing if you have things like Skyshroud Cutter and Refreshing Rain in the deck. Maybe.

Boza on Tainted Gains

While all the white lifegain spells are nice, they have a problem - they cost mana to cast. Cards like Invigorate, Skyshroud Cutter, Reverent Silence do not.

What else goes well with cards that gain an opponent life? Why, Kavu Predator does!

Going to black, the one shot False Cure will also work for a turn!
