Sudden Spoiling Discussion

i like the inclusion of Sudden Spoiling. i'd put a Bile Blight or 2 in the side if you could. love decks like these. how does Shadow of Doubt work for you in the main? has it served better than being in the side? +1

I like Ammit Eternal but I feel Bloodghast would suite your deck much better.

Victim of Night used to be the best removal spell in mono black. It doesn't hold up so much anymore. I would advise mixing that slot up. With some Go for the Throat, Ultimate Price, and Bile Blight.

Sign in Blood is good but I think you would do better with 2x Phyrexian Arena. I know your 3 drop slot is cluttered as is but it'll benefit you more in the long run. You could run some Wrench Mind, Gurmag Angler, or Tombstalker in those 2 free slots.

Sideboard looks really bare bones. I suggest Leyline of the Void, Memoricide, Damnation, Demon's Horn, Leyline of the Void, Sudden Spoiling, Torpor Orb, Sever the Bloodline, Marrow Shards.

Yeah, I go back and forth about Sudden Spoiling. Great card, a lot of utility, split second is huge. It could replace just about any fog in the deck. It had been in the deck before, it may be in it in the future, and I totally understand any version of the deck that runs it.

I love how other people are playing the deck, either exactly as listed or a variation of their own. Other people weighing in with their experiences is super helpful because I get to learn from them, and people can see that it isnt just me being a zealot for the deck or my meta being a uniquely safe place for it. These comments are awesome.

Hey, back again! I don't know if you've looked at this card already, but Sudden Spoiling has a metric ton of utility, works as a pseudo fog a lot of the time, and as a bonus, has split second!

I tried to make Sisters of Stone Death work in my Damia deck but it just needed too much mana. The Horobi synergy you have is amazing. Sudden Spoiling helps you deal with hexproof stuff as well.

einee03 Thank you for taking a look at the deck! and thank you for the good question!

Dealing with exile is always a problem for most decks, as it means bye bye for those cards forever unless you're playing some eldrazi tribal I guess??? But absolutely you can lose the opportunity to combo off with a Maze's End if someone successfully exiles a gate or Maze itself. You have already recognized some of my counters that hit those activated and or triggered abilities, but if it is just going to the graveyard I am generally not that concerned because I run cards like Eternal Witness and Noxious Revival.

In the event that my combo is no longer accessible, Child of Alara is very strong and efficient! people don't realize how strong it can really be until it is happening to them. It is also very easy to bluff the Maze combo, and simply utilize it to get color whilst preparing for a very strong board lock with child. You can even kill the board in only 6 swings! Note, that sounds like a lot, but it goes by rather quickly if player's don't have anything they can do. And in EDH terms 6 turns is trivial at best.

I really really really like Sudden Spoiling! that is a very good alternative to Polymorphist's Jest, a card I've wanted to run but been hesitant because of the double color. Double black is much better thanks to Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and my heavy reliance on black for many of my mechanics means I'm always on the lookout for black sources. And I am always looking for ways to deal with indestructibility in my deck, and this is excellent! Thank you for the great suggestion!

I have mentioned in conversations above my disinterest for creature based lands due to the tight mana base, however Kessig Wolf Run still directly synergizes (is that how it's spelled?) with Child, and only gets stronger with lots of mana, which I tend to have a lot of being partly a land based combo deck! Definitely going into the maybe pile! Thank you again for another good suggestion!

Hello, nice deck.But I have a question. How you deal wiht exile one of your Gates or Maze's End?Cars like a Strip Mine, Wasteland or Beast Within with exile cards like a Bojuka Bog and more? Do you rely on Disallow and Voidslime ?And what do you thing about replacement of Gift of Tusks for Sudden Spoiling? It can help you against hexproof generals like a Urin and Narset and also can safe your ass, if you are playing against mass token decks, like a Lotus God. + split second is badass on that.
