Stalking Vengeance Discussion
2 weeks ago
Great suggestions Tata! I'm actually planning to include Zombify AND Dread Return but my LGS has a hard time keeping this card in-stock it seems. Three trips now and no dice haha (same issue with Anger & Dictate of Erebos )
I definitely have a soft spot for Flayer of the Hatebound , especially in conjunction with Stalking Vengeance and/or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . In combo with Birthing Pod it allows me to pull two creatures instead of one, which in-and-of-itself is fairly appealing. You're not wrong, I just like the options the card provides.
Now that I've removed Siege-Gang Commander the Marsh Flitter has become pretty one-dimensional. Definitely on the cut list. Generator Servant will likely stay.. this card is really quite good. It has in-built synergy with Korvold and early in the game has been able to eat removal spells on numerous occasions.
When I first constructed this deck I had Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Burnished Hart & Explosive Vegetation in it. Since switching to Korvold as the Commander and especially since the addition of Sol Ring , Ashnod's Altar & Phyrexian Altar casting my Commander has never been an issue. Once Korvold hits the field the Card Draw is really gratuitous. So-much-so that I've recently decided a Reliquary Tower is a necessity. In this kind of deck drawing cards will always be a better alternative to ramp spells (in my opinion). In the rare circumstance I struggle to get to five mana, perhaps I'll regret this sentiment and make changes, but consistently it has not been an issue [thus far] with this deck.

There already is sorta one in Stalking Vengeance , although that triggers on death rather than entry. Therefore it seems likely that they could print a creature version of Warstorm Surge at some point.

Nice deck Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor. The name gave me a laugh.
Consider a few other tutors to get the persist creatures and a sac outlet into your hand or onto the battlefield?
- Gamble : I think this is a must add because it can tutor for an enchantment or artifact sac outlet.
- Fauna Shaman : repeatable creature tutor.
- Eldritch Evolution or Birthing Pod : nice to sac a three or four drop to get a five drop since many of the persist creatures are five drops.
Consider cutting Longshot Squad , Kodama's Reach and Warstorm Surge for these tutors? Warstorm is six drop redundancy that I don't think you need. Stalking Vengeance could be cut instead of Warstorm, but it's a creature who's easier to tutor for than Warstorm.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Thermopod : as bad as it is, it's a sac outlet that's a creature which is much easier to tutor for.
- Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin : he can get out of hand fast with Grumgully since the first time he attacks he makes three 2/2 Goblins, next time four 2/2 Goblins. Good sac fodder.
- Incubation Druid : upgrade for Fertilid tapping for three mana even the turn you play it with haste enablers.
- Farseek or Talisman of Impulse : upgrade for Rampant Growth because you have Stomping, Sheltered and Glade.

Thanks for the comment Byuante.
So this deck isn't really about attacking, which is why I have left out some of the more obvious finishers like Overwhelming Stampede and Craterhoof Behemoth . Though adding in one mass pump spell isn't a bad idea if my primary win-con fails.
Speaking of which, Furystoke Giant and Aerie Ouphes are part of this deck's win condition. This deck is all about using the persist mechanic to go infinite. Each creature with persist creates an infinite loop with a free sac outlet and either Grumgully, the Generous or Melira, Sylvok Outcast on the battlefield. I run all of the persist creatures simply because there aren't many of them to begin with.
Add in any of Purphoros, God of the Forge , Impact Tremors , Altar of Dementia , Blasting Station , Warstorm Surge , or Stalking Vengeance to close out the game. Though now that I see all of the finishers listed next to one another, I may cut Stalking Vengeance or Warstorm Surge . 6 payoffs is likely too many.
Woodfall Primus is a special case because it is both the best persist creature, and yet due to its ability, it is the worst for the combo. It can't go infinite because it must destroy a noncreature permanent. That means it will eventually have to start targeting my own things. I almost left it out of the deck because it basically reads: "your opponent's can't play for the rest of the game". However, it is just a very good card on it's own so I left it in the deck.
Broken Bond is an interesting card that I really should try out. I always see it, but because it's sorcery speed I have never tried it. Plus it's another card that deals with Torpor Orb which automatically makes it something to consider.

With only a few legendary creatures I think Mirror March would be a nice include paired up with Siege-Gang Commander or Myr Battlesphere . Winning a 2 coin flips is huge. And maybe add Vicious Shadows and or Stalking Vengeance and or Warstorm Surge I honestly think Vicious Shadows is very powerful

Interesting theme! Strionic Resonator could be neat here. Use it with your general to make lots of manas, or use it to double triggered effects from your dragons (2 Balefire breaths? Don't mind if I do!).
