Valentine35 on Attack you? Why would I do that?

1 day ago

if you wanted to splash white its fun because you Stab Wound or One Thousand Lashes and put Pacifism on the same creature so they can't get rid of it and it just sits their and slowly kills them. Or Xathrid Gorgon turn them to stone and they sit there killing their master.

You could use Stab Wound on anything 3-5 power and toughness to keep minimal damage dealt to you and to deplete their life wanting them to get the creature destroyed

HeroTime on Dimir Jank or Competitive Deck ...

So I was originally planing on a janky deck playing with enchants like Sinister Possession and Stab Wound but it's starting to form into something a little more than that. So I'm not sure what I could do to improve it. I either want it to be even more janky and just fun to play or move it over slightly to be more competitive.

Tinselteeth on Minotaur Tribal - Cheap

Sounds pretty good. I wasn't going to put Thoughtseize out there due to it's $ cost, but if you have them, definitely throw them in. There's gotta be a reason they're $15+ a pop! Stab Wound looks nice and I wouldn't mind playing it in Limited, but I'm not the biggest fan of the 3CMC. The 2 damage/turn is nice if it sticks, but -2/-2... I would play that more as creature removal than life attrition. If Stab Wound is in there just for the debuff, I would recommend Dead Weight . Same base effect, only costs a single Black mana. And very budget friendly.

Thank you guys all for the comments, it really helps!

That Didgeridoo is amazing for this deck, i just wonder if i can afford it. The $20 cap is hard and I have no Boros Reckoner currently.

Oracle of Bones was chosen simply because I have them. I was thinking of adding in 3 more sorceries or instants to round out to 60, which would bolster the punch of the Oracle. Do you think that is wise?

I'm going to try really hard to not dip out of the Cows. I know that will weaken the deck, but it also makes it that much more satisfying when i beat my friends... I can't wait to beat them, look them in the eyes, and then moo at them.

That being said, I don't like Felhide Brawler either, but i think it balances the Deathbellow Raider . They don't have to attack every turn, for one, but also the black mana they require synergizes well with the black mana to regenerate the deathbellows.

I agree with the Transguild Promenade , but it is the only card like it that I have. I don't have the room in my budget to add in another Temple of Malice or else I would. I could grab another few evolving wilds, but I think your suggestion of regular lands might be right.

Currently I am thinking of making room in my budget for a Didgeridoo , adding another Fanatic of Mogis , and adding some more removal. I have Thoughtseize or 2, plus i think i might add in Stab Wound for a little debuff too.

How does that sound to people??

Thank you, guys!

So before I comment about suggestions, let me put this damned MonoBlack that stays unbeatable by 3 weeks. Isn't only for the Asphodel but it has A LOT of removal spells. Here we go:

Creatures (17): 3x Corpse Hauler , 4x Basilica Screecher , 2x Perilous Shadow , 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel , 4x Disciple of Phenax .Spells (20): 4x Stab Wound , 4x Read the Bones , 4x Quag Sickness , 4x Pharika's Cure , 4x Grisly Spectacle (and 4x Devour Flesh in SB also).

So, I agree with you Boza! My deck doesn't have a well defined purpose, but I built it thinking about what kind of qualities I would have with U/G colors (U/G is always a good combination for rogue decks =D). So I'd have to be faster (Elvish Mystic, Lay of the Land, Cloudfin Raptor), I'd have to draw cards faster than he'd draw removals (Commune with the Gods, Divination), I'd have to protect my creatures/finishers (Gladecover Scout, Rubbleback Rhino, Negate) and pump them (evolve, Forced Adaptation)!

hmm Ghoulraiser with only Gray Merchant of Asphodel as zombie?And Witches can kill your Liliana Specter.Try to think about more reactivation cards from gravyeard like Ghoulcaller's Chant .Faerie Macabre can be good for this Ghoulraiser. Or Faceless Butcher ,Augur of Skulls .

Diabolic Edict and geths Verdict are good for aura deck , but for aggro decks u should change with Dead Weight , its cheaper cost. If u gonna play with some deck witch got some bigger creatures (f.e. 3/3) u can also use Stab Wound :And maybe add 2 Corrupt ifs main card of devotion. :)

Thanks for the input Tata. One Thousand Lashes stifles activated abilities too, and the main reason I put it in over Arrest is because of the life loss. I've considered Stab Wound too, but I don't like that they still have the option to block with the creature and get it killed off, the only way I'm thinking it would be worth it is if I cast it on a creature without flying and only attacked with flying creatures.

I've been trying to track down more Sin Collector , so for now I've only got 2 to work with. I've mainboarded the 4 Duress just to ensure I get it out first or second turn, as even one early Magma Jet or Spark Jolt could ruin my game.

I do agree on Crypt Ghast . I like Sengir Vampire but I'm thinking its +1/+1 counter ability would be wasted in this deck, as its purpose is to prevent opponents creatures from blocking, so perhaps Alms Beast or Serra Angel instead?

I also gave some heroic creatures a shot, such as Tormented Hero , Agent of the Fates , and Ashiok's Adept , but I'm trying to keep it simple with just extort creatures, so I'll probably just make a completely separate mono black heroic deck for those with a bunch of heroic triggers like Grisly Transformation and Necrobite .
