Stab Wound Discussion

Yeah, I removed the Eidolon of Countless Battles because they wouldn't be as good as I had originally thought.

I see what you're saying about Stab Wound. I liked it for the 2 lost per upkeep. Banishing Light does seem like a better choice.

I did want Sphere of Safety. It's a great card. I do like Fate Unraveler but the Sphere will probably do more for me.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Keep in mind that Starfield of Nyx won't turn Aura's (such as Stab Wound) into a creature. It in general is a poor card choice as the opponent will probably just kill their own creature if the got spot removal considering your actual creature spells are higher CMC's so they're gonna be slow to show up most of the time. I'd swap out the Aura's and add in a set of Banishing Light and Journey to Nowhere. I also think that Eidolon of Countless Battles isn't that good when running Starfield of Nyx since it gets pumped by Aura's. Maybe swap the Eidolon's out for some Underworld Coinsmith and the 2 Fate Unraveler's for any 2 of Sphere of Safety/Mesa Enchantress/Sigil of the Empty Throne/Doomwake Giant.

I liked using Sinister Possession for creatures as it can prevent attacks or make them pay for attacking, not to mention it is super cheap; I also enjoyed using Stab Wound to make their larger creature smaller and the bleed is nice. Also, a Sphere of Safety would make a huge impact against your opponent.

I'd like to help you however I can for your deck. :3

Some other walls instead of Wall of Junk could be Wall of Souls, Wall of Glare, Wall of Hope, Souls of the Faultless, Living Wall, and Wall of Bone. I like Wall of Junk since it's a cheap and tough wall, but you have to pay to bring it back every time it blocks, but personally I would prefer Wall of Bone or [[Living Wall] since they can be regenerated and block deathtouch.

Edge of Divinity is alright, but with 12 enchantments I would swap it out for Ethereal Armor since it would also get first strike.

I'm not sure why you have Obelisk of Esper without blue. If you wanna keep an artifact that produces mana then consider replacing it with Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune, or Orzhov Signet

Unless you plan on using cards that take advantage of gates you should replace them with a different dual land. Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel, Marsh Flats, Orzhov Basilica, uber expensive Scrubland, Tainted Field, and Temple of Silence. There's also gonna be a B/W manland with BfZ along with enemy colored manlands.

Spirit Mantle could prevent your creature from getting blocked.

Hyena Umbra prevents a death.

I've always liked Mark of the Vampire since it gives a nice boost and lifelink and [Dark Favor]] gives a good power boost for a bit of life.

Nimbus Wings, Angelic Destiny, and Gift of Orzhova are all options for flying.

Darklit Gargoyle could be made even better by enchanting it or by giving it something like an Accorder's Shield.

You could consider Fabled Hero since he has double strike.

Both Black Knight and White Knight aren't bad.

Blood-Cursed Knight could work well if you keep the enchantments.

Archetype of Courage is good, but makes other first strike irrelevant.

Fiendslayer Paladin is good.

Knight of Meadowgrain.

I'm sorry about suggesting so much more white than black...and also all the knights. :3

Dismember, Stab Wound, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, and Murder are good choices.

You could always add Stab Wound and/or Gift of Orzhova.

Stab Wound is kind of weak for its cost. Also, Indulgent Tormentor doesn't sync well with the rest of the deck. Try Lingering Souls for its general amazingness if you want. Also look at this deck type, soul sisters: fun to play and similar to this one.

Rocknj06 on [Community Discussion]: Catastrophic misplays!

2 months ago

Actually I have another one. It was RTR prerelease I believe. I made a couple of misplays, but the one that sticks out cost me a top 8. I had Stab Wound on my opponents creature the turn before. My next turn I attack like an idiot and he blocks, which kills his creatute and drops my enchantment. The kicker I literally had to just sit there and take the hits as my life was higher than my opponents and would have one in the next 2 or 3 turns... Realized it as soon as I blocked.... Midnight games are a killer on the brain.
