Spreading Plague


Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, destroy all other creatures that share a color with it. They can't be regenerated.

Lots of good stuff there killroy726.

Spreading Plague is a must buy and I'm sure Worship and Near-Death Experience could be paired up.

Very well then. As long as the cards are not creatures (This deck has strict standards. Just be careful of them. ;/), I'm game w/ them... Unless you have a better idea for the CMDR? Maybe Sliver Hivelord w/ Spreading Plague? This deck already has Vivien Reid, so keeping her will be better w/ her still in w/ Plague. Just a thought. ;)

Undying Evil on Xantcha would protect her, buff her and you can swap controllers.

Spreading Plague is fun.

Spreading Plague has worked wonders although sometimes it gets in the way of my secondary Win Cons which is Turning Tokens Sideways.

I haven't had too much trouble with fast aggro. Between all the Chump Tokens, Edicts, Mass Removal, and Exiling the field stays pretty clear until either Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Sorin, Grim Nemesis finish the game with The Chain Veil or someone gets slammed by dozens of token creatures.

Oath of Liliana is an absolute All-Star in a flicker deck. I often find myself tutoring for it as soon as possible.

I am potentially switching my commander from Jodah, Archmage Eternal to Sliver Queen. Since I don't run Spreading Plague, I want your opinion on this deck:

Jodah, the Walker that wished He Was...

I'm trying to cut to 100, including Rowan Kenrith, & Lightmine Field. Suggestions for cuts? I'm also thinking of re-adding Samut, the Tested, Lethal Vapors, & Kiora, the Crashing Wave. Please respond soon, I'll be ordering online soon...

Ahh, I've gone up against different meta's that use combo-kill. Sadly black is not too good at using tax effects to stop combos naturally.

What I can recommend to better go against a combo-kill meta in general would be:

Mind Slash: Repeatable Hand-Disruption.

Tainted AEther, Spreading Plague: Punishes creature spam combos.

Torpor Orb: Stops abusable ETB effects.

Damping Sphere: Kills Storm or Repeatable-Cast combos.

Blood Artist: Counters death-loop combos.

Mesmeric Orb: Ruins combo decks that don't run recursion.

Null Rod: Stops artifact combos.

Planar Void, Silent Gravestone: Hates on graveyard combos.

Hex Parasite: Repeatable kill target planeswalker.

Orb of Dreams: Denies loops that bounces or blinks lands, artifacts, or hasty creatures.

Orbs of Warding: Combos that target players or deals 1 damage per loop means nothing to you.

Every combo is different, so I gave a generic list. I'd only consider the cards listed that apply specifically to your meta, however; Mind Slash would probably do wonders for your deck.

Im not sure, your running a pretty tight list already.Is Spreading Plague a meta call?

Ive built a handful of decks and honestly Lord of Tresshorn was one of my favorite... May need to rebuild him haha. One thing I found that I loved was playing Spreading Plague followed by the Lord. Destroys everything but white and green creatures. But restricted opponents from casting additional green or white creatures without risking the board wipe. Ideally you will need haste. But board wiping and having a 10/4 with haste is amazing. Hes a great commander, just needs a proper build. Consider also adding Thraximundar since he is a zombie and benefits from sacrificing. Just a few ideas.
