Whenever another creature you control dies, it deals damage equal to its power to target player.

Stalking Vengeance Discussion
2 weeks ago
Nice deck you’ve made here. +1 from me. I’m currently brewing my own Brion deck and was wanting to check out other ppls builds for ideas I may not have thought of. I do have one question for you. Why do you have Stalking Vengeance in the maybe board and not in the 99? It seems like it would be a great card to have in it since you would basically be getting double damage from any flung creature.

This is pretty nice, so you'll get an upvote. So I see Stalking Vengeance isn't a goblin, but with that many small dudes, it can hit pretty hard.

This looks far better; we have a defined theme now and I see some more staples in (dorks). However I'd like to address few likely weak spots.
First thing that got my attention was the relatively high average cmc. This is a casual deck and higher-than-usual avg cmc is to be expected of course. But in my suggestions I'll keep in mind fostering a healthy curve and prioritize low-cmc cards.
Dragon Broodmother- this is a neat, but a very slow engine. If the deck works perfectly as intended, there are still cooler options. Plus 6cmc for such slow effect is a lot.
Ghoulcaller Gisa - again, neat but slow. At 5cmc there might be better options available to you. First similar thing that comes to mind is Open the Graves which would give you tokens more reliably (being a triggered rather than an activated ability stapled to an enchantment rather than a creature) and that doesn't have summoning sickness.
Sheoldred, Whispering One - probably the best expensive creature you have. My concern is that in order to get to 7 mana and stay alive long enough for Sheoldred to matter, you must have game in a state where, frankly, SHeoldred isn't much of a factor.
Stalking Vengeance seems awfully expensive TBH. That ceiling is something, but IMO it's too greedy.
Vicious Shadows - 7 mana to do something in case you have a removal and an opponent has significant number of cards in hand? You can comfortably throw in a blue moon somewhere in that chain of events...
Essence Harvest - goes well with the theme, but ultimately doesn't do much
Fungal Sprouting - cute, but the fact that it's useless when you're down makes it a no no in my eyes.
Now some suggestions;
Fecundity - seems like a cool way to draw extra cards
Skullclamp - in here it says ": draw 2 cards". Yes please.
Fling/Thud - these effects seem like they could/should be your bread and butter. Worst case scenario they're pw/creature removal with sac outlet. Best case scenario they are capable of taking down players.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier- tutor on a stick is usually good if you have creatures to sac. In a vacuum it's a Demonic Tutor that gives counters to Kresh. Best case scenario you have a sac outlet and get a complimentary 4/6 deathtouch to fool around with.
Smothering Abomination - draw engine on a stick. Seems good.
Birthing Pod - it kills stuff plus it tutors. And it's repeatable. What's not to like?
Evolutionary Leap - sac outlet that gets you more creatures.

Very cool title for the topic :D
After looking at the deck, I couldn't find Muldrotha, the Gravetide. She might be worth a slot for sure. You mentioned adding some grave-filling. How about Deadbridge Chant for that? Oh, and Stalking Vengeance should be a blast if you have some evoke creatures

Great start of a deck, although some of the choices (like glacial chasm) are dubious. I'd really recommend more creatures and maybe a tighter mana curve. Cards that would REALLY benefit your deck are Tilonalli's Summoner, Stalking Vengeance, and one of the best burn cards in the game, Purphoros, God of the Forge (albeit a bit pricey for purphoros).
I have a deck here Floating Omnath, Locus of Trample which does what your deck does, but also runs a trampling subtheme for when I can't really get a full damage engine going.
Really cool deck, glad to see someone else playing burn omnath, and you even taught me about pandemonium (although im unsure if ill add it to my list because of its symmetric effects)

Your deck is gonna be stagnant if Marchesa isn't protected so I'd suggest Lightning Greaves to protect her. I'd also suggest Grim Haruspex, Disciple of Bolas and Sage of Fables for some reliable card draw. Your deck also seems to want to be aggressive so cards like Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch and Anger to have more cards that grant haste to capitalize on an open opponent. Also dealing with combat you can have some extra evasion with stuff like Profaner of the Dead and Pyreheart Wolf. If you want to delve more into the realm of taking other people's creatures then Molten Primordial would be great. Last but not least Marchesa, the Black Rose and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed puts anything that dies into a recursion loop, so another way to abuse that is having a creature infinitely die while Deathbringer Thoctar or Stalking Vengeance is out to throw infinite damage at everyone for a W!!! That's all I got, Happy Brewing!!!

Ashnod's Altar is an obvious upgrade for its great potential in synergies and also infinite combos like with Nim Deathmantle. I am waiting for a reprint for it to go back to 3$ as it was a year ago. I discarded the summoner cause it was too mana hunru, but with the altar it could certainly be VERY funny.
On the recurssion departmente I was certainly thinking about those 2 creatures. Whisper, Blood Liturgist has never proven its worth to me before but Hell's Caretaker was an option I was considering. The main reason I am not runnin the caretaker or Stalking Vengeance is because they didn't seem to go well with my board when I proxied them. Stalking vengeance was a 7cc 5/5 sitting on the board doing 1 o 2 damage at times.
Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are upgrades for the future for sure. They are amazing cards which I would love to run. So is the Whip of Erebos. Finally, Grenzo. That sure is a Chaotic Card and I like it. It doesnt have much synergies unless Shadows of the Past and Viscera Seer do there job, in which case it could be amazing. It ain't expensive either so certainly a fun adition to run.
All in all, thanks a lot for the suggestions. I will try adding the caretaker and when I eventually manage to get my hand on the altar, I will also add the Summoner since that combo had gone completely under y nose and it is fo damn funny.
