Sneak Attack Discussion

TitanWalls on Do I have a window ...

I was playing a game where my opponent had a Sneak Attack and Shivan Phoenix combo (what a jerk, right?) while I had a Scavenging Ooze in play. I found the wording on the phoenix to be confusing, so is there a period in which the Shivan Phoenix exists in the graveyard, in which I can use my ooze to exile it?

Daedalus19876 Hot damn thats a lot of good suggestions.

Chain Reaction and Blasphemous Act were removed for more spot removal. This way I can keep my creatures. I probably will take your advice and switch it out for Chandra's Ignition. I have that in this deck for a creature with wither so its like a -1/-1 wipe. Or maybe for Decree of Pain.

Fists of the Demigod and Festering Mummy/the little -1's were removed due to better options. The fist would be mostly for adding wither to my creatures which isnt that great in comparisons to Corrosive Mentor as I only have 4 red creatures.

Sneak Attack might have a place but Heartless Summoning is going to kill to many of my creatures and lowers my wither -1's. But Heartstone might be fun! ill playtest.

Horobi, Death's Wail will most likely be added due to the spot removal and the wheel affects will be added. But only the draw 7 ones. Same with Spontaneous Combustion. I didnt even know this was a card!

I think im going to steer away from Spitebellows/Ingot Chewer/Shriekmaw. They are fun! But kinda out of the burn idea.

Great suggestions as always Daedalus19876!

Okay, I'm back! ;) I'm going to split this feedback over several comments, for which I apologize.

I took some time and cross-referenced our lists. I'm definitely going to steal some ideas from you (and I already have), but here are a few things you might have missed! :)

Blasphemous Act is THE damage-based sweeper. And in this deck, your commander will return without having to play no commander tax. Accept no substitute.

We have a slow-gring commander with an instant-speed mana sink, which makes me immediately consider Braid of Fire. Plus, it's always handy for a big Comet Storm in a pinch (speaking of which, why aren't there more instant-speed global damage effects here?).

Chain Reaction is another of the best damage-based sweepers in the game. I would personally include it over Burn from Within or Chandra's Ignition, perhaps.

Death Match is a card I've always wanted an excuse to use, and it might fit here. It keeps the field very clean, which is what you want in this deck.

Decree of Pain is a MUST. It has an extremely strong cycling ability, and if you hardcast it you'll often be drawing DOUBLE cards.

I like Festering Mummy here. It's a cheap way to place early counters, and can "cantrip" with The Scorpion God out (put a -1 counter on it, draw, put another -1 counter).

Fists of the Demigod seems really strong attached to your commander here (since it'll kill most anything in combat, AND draw you a card from the Withering counters).

You will be casting your commander from hand a lot. This suggests to me the necessity for Sneak Attack and Heartless Summoning and Semblance Anvil. If you reduce his cost to recast, it leaves you with more mana to activate his ability (or, you know, cast other spells). Also, Sneak Attack is just busted in general.

Heartstone might work if you're not in too combo-heavy of a meta.

So I did some research and found that most Kaalia decks are pretty streamlined, with a few goals in mind. The deck can be divided into a few key parts to look for: big stompy angels/demons/dragons, the best of which are the avacyns, old Gisela, Iona, any other ones with etbs, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Balefire Dragon, Bladewing the Risen, stuff like that. Then you want mana accelerators that can jam kaalia early-stuff like signets, chrome mox, fetches and shocks for fixing, and maybe a couple rituals. Then you want a couple ways to give kaalia haste, like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mass Hysteria, and the like. This can also include lands like Hanweir Battlements, Hall of the Bandit Lord and Slayers' Stronghold. Then once kaalia is out, you'll want a way to make sure your threats stick, which is typically done through land destruction like Wasteland, Strip Mine, Armageddon, Vindicate, and other other mass land destruction. The last bits are some light spot removal (basically the best spells like Anguished Unmaking and Swords to Plowshares) and some backup plans if kaalia gets hated out, like Reanimate strategies and/or Sneak Attack packages.

That being said, you should have a clear idea of what to look for, and for your troubles I can contribute a Reanimate, an Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Sire Of Insanity, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Chrome Mox, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Vindicate, Armageddon, and fetches/other mardu lands as filler.

Marcus_Licinius_Crassus on Playtesting Sneak and Show

A couple notes:

Traditionally the split between Omniscience and Sneak Attack is 3/3 not 2/4.

I would change the creature package from 4/4 on Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Griselbrand to a 3/3 split.

The 3/3 split allow you to run the fourth Lotus Petal and run the singleton Impulse which a great card for the deck. The 3/3 split also allows you to prevent a clunky draw with a bunch of fatties stuck in your hand from a top deck war.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Marchesa Edh

Ok...There are typically two ways of making a Marchesa deck. The first way is to put in a lot of creatures that can get +1/+1 counters easily (like Anthroplasm, Aetherborn Marauder, Butcher Ghoul, Carrion Feeder or Unleash/Modular cards). The problem is, these cards hardly do anything other than putting counters on themselves. They're pretty much duds. So to make up for this, people will put in good sac outlets, (Cards like Mind Slash, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Attrition, etc). This type of deck gets its engine running STRICTLY from it's sac outlets, (NOT FROM ITS CREATURES) and because of this, it is a bit more reliant on it's commander.

The second type of deck is my preferred method of playstyle. Whereby, the deck is not RELYING on its sac outlets, (although it does have a few) but rather on the bounce effects of creatures. (Cards like Mulldrifter and Harvester of Souls). With this type of deck, you're also not fully relying on your commander. Marchesa is just a perk. If you don't have her out, you can still play your creatures and benefit from them.

Also keep in mind, that it isn't too hard getting +1/+1 counters on your creatures just using the dethrone ability itself. I find that most, if not all the time, you will NOT be at the highest life total; especially if you have Necropotence, Ancient Tomb, Unspeakable Symbol, shock lands, fetch lands, and pain lands in the deck.

This is the Marchesa deck that I personally made. You're welcome to look at it for suggestions.

Some cards that I would highly recommend putting in the deck are:
- Sneak Attack
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Demonic Tutor
- River Kelpie
- Necropotence
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Diabolic Intent
- Harvester of Souls
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Mind Slash
- Thalakos Deceiver
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Phyrexian Tower
- Cyclonic Rift
- Grimgrin, Corpse-Born
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
- Scourge of the Throne
- Unspeakable Symbol
- Grave Betrayal
- Flayer of the Hatebound
- Thraximundar
NOTE: If you do decide to have this deck be a bit more ETB heavy, Deadeye Navigator and Rite of Replication are good cards to help abuse the ETB triggers.

ThisIsBullshit I cut Reiver Demon and Oros for Sneak Attack and Lord of the Void. I plan on adding Mother of Runes, Grand Abolisher Necropotence and Sword of Fire and Ice one i figure out what to get rid of. Karmic Guide is good but i think i have enough ways to bring back creatures.

I think Oros and Reiver Demon are bad in this deck, they don't really do enough and when are you ever casting Reiver from your hand? I would suggest Lord of the Void and Rune-Scarred Demon instead. They're much more powerful and not that expensive.

Depending on how you want your deck to play, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Grand Abolisher and Mother of Runes are good for defense and slowing down opponents.

Dragon Tempest is really good too, I'd run that instead of True Conviction. Karmic Guide is also a good card to have, I tend to hardcast it but you can always drop her with Kaalia if you need to.

For utility, I would recommend Sword of Fire and Ice and Sneak Attack. These have both singlehandedly won me games so I wouldn't underestimate them. Necropotence can do some work too. Instead of Hellkite Charger, I like Aggravated Assault because it's cheaper and harder to remove. Enlightened Tutor to get your enchantments or Lightning Greaves is awesome too. If you need more ramp, stuff like Mana Vault is good.

I would personally add more removal, either wraths or spot pieces. If you agree/are interested, I can give you a whole list of cards.

Deck looks good though! I like the number of lands and amount of creatures for Kaalia to hit. Hope this helps. I have a duel EDH Kaalia deck you can check out if you'd like.
