Sudden Spoiling Discussion

NV_1980 thanks for the comment!, I have not tested the deck yet since some cards are still on there way towards me :) I like your suggestion about Sudden Spoiling as it indeed would get rid of the hexproof/shroud dudes who my opponents might have.

About the Archfiend of Ifnir i was hoping to find your list of hapatra since perhaps you are more build arround the cycle and discard then me and was looking into some suggestions for it. The card looks amazing but wouldn't you need a package of discard and cycle for it to shine?

thanks for looking into my deck tho!!

I've been playing a deck like this and decided to cut Harbinger of Night. The reason for this was simple: it killed off my own snakes before I could ever attack with them. Sure, I would get new snakes onto the field from Hapatra for killing my current snakes off, but they would have summoning sickness. So unless I had some other snake-buffs on the field, this was not very useful if I ever wanted to actually use them.

A card I'd definitely consider as a replacement, would be Sudden Spoiling. This is crazy powerful with this deck, as it can combo with the distribution of -1/-1 counters and thereby get rid of any hexproof/shroud creatures.

No, because Sudden Spoiling doesn't affect all creatures, just the ones controlled by the player it's targeting. Ranging Raptors is still a 2/3.

My opponent has a Sorin, Lord of Innistrad emblem and attacks with Adorned Pouncer. I block with my Ranging Raptors.

The first strike hits for 2 damage. If I use Sudden Spoiling before on my opponent, will the Adorned Pouncer still strike for normal strike and kill my Raptors?

Flarhoon13 on Erebos' Totally Devoted to Death

Thursday night report, so much mana!

Tonight, finally added Crypt Ghast (replaced Ivory Tower) as I also put in Cabal Stronghold. Wow, amazing! I mean, no duh, right? I had Crypt Ghast most of the game and untapped a turn or two with those newly acquired cards plus Caged Sun and Cabal Coffers. Mike was borrowing my Kynaios and Tyro of Meletis deck and had the Insurrection but that was effectively countered by my Sudden Spoiling. I untapped and attacked, eliminating Arvad the Cursed because Angela's top deck was revealed by Brendon's Daxos of Meletis techy Lantern of Insight to be Urza's Ruinous Blast. After a Corpse Harvester sacrifice, Sheoldred, Whispering One reanimated Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the win. I was drowning in mana for enough turns to have over 20 devotion.

Of course, the previous game was more ignominious as I used Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get Bojuka Bog for Tori's Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck rather than Cabal Coffers to further my own agenda. She was at a low enough life total I need not have done that. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder was then my final undoing as Tana, the Bloodsower had four swords equipped and enough tokens with a sac outlet to finish me off.

I know this is Magic Christmas Land, but... Breya is "Magic Christmas Land" in card form.

With Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks, Mycosynth Lattice, Junk Diver/Scrap Trawler, Baleful Strix and Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle in play, you can draw and should be able to cast your entire deck.

Add in Shimmer Myr or Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage and you should be able to cast everything in your library, except for Sorceries(unless Vedalken Orrery is used), at Instant speed.

  1. Sac BS. 2mana
  2. Sac JD/ST returning BS to hand. 4mana
  3. Cast BS to trigger TAA returning JD/ST to play. BS etb, draw card. 2 mana
  4. Start at 1 until you don't need to.
  5. Cast everything.
  6. If playing at Instant speed, cast Sudden Spoiling before passing priority.
