Stinkweed Imp

Creature — Imp


Whenever Stinkweed Imp deals combat damage to a creature, destroy that creature.

Dredge 5 (If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly five cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card.)

Stinkweed Imp Discussion

Altoman on Orzhov Reanimator

Nice deck, I think it has good potential.

I suggest Putrid Imp and Dragon Breath . Who doesn't like a turn 2 win?

I'm pretty sure you don't need 14 big boys to get the reanimator effect. If you really want the effect to happen I suggest something with dredge like Stinkweed Imp .

Finally I suggest removing Predatory Nightstalker (a 3/2 for five?) and replace it with Geth's Verdict or Victim of Night . If you want a creature, make it a Perilous Myr .

I'm not sure tbh. -4x Bridge from Below and -4x Altar of Dementia , I guess, for starters :-D

I'll probably start with some mix of Creeping Chill , Unearth , and Stinkweed Imp , but I've no idea where the deck might end up ...

Good luck with your testing too!

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

Other cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting (no order):

I saw that the content creator magic_aids has made a version with Leyline of the Void in the main (which from a meta choice makes sense). I have put the stinkweed imps in the sideboard to fit the leyline playset into the main.

I think that Stinkweed Imp is not necessary, but if you are needing that extra combo speed from turn 3 into a turn 2.5/2.0 combo then stinkweed imp should help.

I love the 8 elementals for the Sideboard. The evoke mechanic is really busted with altar of dementia and delve mechanic. The tutor for the 8 elemental side is a huge plus. I also actively seek to avoid using green in the Sideboard in order to keep a stable mana base. Avoiding green is completely a personal preference.

I've become a fan of 1-2x Flamekin Harbinger recently, as a way to fit additional cards into the sideboard. It can of course find Wispmare or Ingot Chewer as needed if they have hate, but can also find Vengevine if they don't.

Also, I'm running Darkblast in the slots where you have Stinkweed Imp ... I'd appreciate any thoughts you have on pros/cons of Imp vs. other options!

I notice you're running Stinkweed Imp in the "flex slots" ... I looked at Imp early on, but haven't really tested it. Do you have a feel yet for the pros/cons vs. other options? Thanks!

We can't Convoke Wispmare (nor Ingot Chewer , which is very similar) for Hogaak , but we can sack them for value (to either Altar or Carrion Feeder ) with the Evoke trigger on the stack, they get around Chalice on 1, and they count towards Vengevine 's triggered ability. I started on Nature's Claim , but have really grown to love the Elementals ...

Had my friend pull this combo yesterday: So, Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker , Stinkweed Imp , and Vampiric Rites are on the field. Stinkweed Imp is sacrificed to use Vampiric Rites ability to gain life and draw, however he chooses to dredge the Stinkweed Imp he sacrificed to return it to his hand. Does Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker return Stinkweed Imp to the battlefield from his hand?

Funkydiscogod on Vendetta in Modern

Why doesn't the card Vendetta see more play in Modern? Is it the life loss that scares people away?

If we look at the most played creatures in Modern, the black ones are:

So, yeah there are a few creatures that it doesn't get, but is that enough to make it unplayable? It seems like a relatively short list of modern-playable creatures that it can't hurt.

I mean, yeah, occasionally a Grim Flayer will murder your face off, but what do you guys think? How would Vendetta perform in the current metagame?
