Sudden Spoiling Discussion

Is there any chance you can convince your friend to start playing a "fair" format such as frontier? Not even using tournament strategies, just brewing

To answer your question though, it is sad to lose the person who got you into the game. If you cannot convince them to stay, the best thing you can do is ensure the rest of the playgroup enjoys it. In my pod, we have certain cards "banned" in various formats, either because of hellish interactions (Eye of the Storm), being fundamentally broken (Paradox Engine) or just straight up un fun (Possessed Portal). Generally speaking, this should encompass not a specific decks main card, but cards that are simply too powerful for your playgroups meta (Sudden Spoiling).

In any case, try and convince your friend to hit up an LGS and get into a format. While it can be costly, it becomes very fun, although doing well with a homebrew requires an ungodly amount of R&D and playtesting.

Hope this helps

If you are going to run Contamination you might also consider running From Beyond in addition to Awakening Zone, but also perhaps Gilded Lotus since if you cast it, it also stops you tapping for

I am also surprised not to see something like Shriekmaw in there, its evoke cost is pretty abusable with Meren.

You might also enjoy Sudden Spoiling since the deck otherwise doesn't seem to have a way of dealing with hexproof or indestructable creatures.

Overall though I really like it and would 100% hate going up against it.

I wouldn't know where to begin with deathtouch. Usually Vhati il-Dal is enough to get the kill. Sudden Spoiling looks really good. In case my opponents amass a board of creatures. I really like that. I'll work on adding it to the deck. Would you have any suggestions as what to cut?

You have many a creature that poke everything and say "Name deals damage..." why not add something to grant deathtouch to one of them for an effect akin to a board wipe? Also, with all the Pestilence effects, Sudden Spoiling may be useful.

Well done on this deck; I really like it. Good on you as well, to choose this rather uncommon commander. May I ask how fast you can establish a board-presence with this deck? Do you feel like you have enough ramp going? A card that would really work well in this deck, would be Sudden Spoiling. And I think Massacre Wurm would fit very well in this deck.

Have fun playing this, looks awesome! And if you have time, please check out one or two of my decks and comment; considering your deck-building skills I'd appreciate your feedback.

Kutdra1 on how does targeting work with ...

3 weeks ago

hey! So I'm running Horobi, Death's Wail and I was wondering does the card need to say "Target" in it? Because I kept seeing Sudden Spoiling and wondered how that worked! Like would cards like Mutilate or Damnation?

Some suggestions

Nemesis of Reason- A body that synergies with mill well

Guiltfeeder- This little guy is a house and will close out games fast, milling 99 is hard, 40 damage is easier

Extract from Darkness- This one is easy, It only mills 2 cards but can steal a creature

Bribery- Instead of stealing a creature from the graveyard, steal it from their deck. Also when it dies, then you can steal it from the graveyard

Dreamborn Muse- Its a double edged sword I know, but it punishes those decks that like to have lots of cards in hand like mine (Animar)

Some more misc stuff

Bojuka Bog- bad early game, can be devastating late game depending on matchup

Sudden Spoiling- can shutdown combos b/c of split second, can make creatures easier to kill or fogs

Just a quick suggestion, I can go more in depth
