Tainted Remedy Discussion

DruneGrey on Do you have any "pet" ...

For sure Tainted Remedy is the card I've fought the longest to make work. I just like that it can make a Grove of the Burnwillows a pinger, Wall of Shards a fast clock and Fiery Justice deal 10 for 3 mana (12 if you got R and G from Burnwillows). The problem I've found is that unless you have it out none of the spells are high enough in power level to justify. It's just delay until I try to find the Remedy.

As for favorite card, Dig Through Time is my all time favorite magic card.

Beacon of Immortality + Tainted Remedy is a one shot kill. Six mana is a lot, but it is a guaranteed win if it resolves.

Sgt.Pickles I'm not really gonna run many creatures in this deck. The entire point is to burn our opponent by adding to our health with Sanguine Bond in play, or healing our opponent and taking health away instead with Tainted Remedy. Rhox Faithmender is in the deck to double our life gained, and thus do more damage through Sanguine Bond, and Perimeter Captain is in the deck to defend us in the early game while we set up, and gain us health at the same time.

I may consider the Sovereign, though. It should be pretty easy to accomplish with this. I'll have to think on it.

I use Tainted Remedy in another deck and it's a fun card. I will try to fit it in. Thanks for feedback!

If you Tainted Remedy to Beacon of Immortality your opponent, then yay, your opponent loses all of their life.

I would recommend Heroes' Reunion, Rest for the Weary, Chaplain's Blessing, Feudkiller's Verdict, and Tainted Remedy. Tainted Remedy is amazing with Rest for the Weary. You can hit them for eight with two mana.

Awesome deck, thought a deck around Tainted Remedy would be pretty cool to play. Chaplain's Blessing might be a good one, it's sorcery speed but 5 life for one mana could be beneficial.

Also, you'll want Tainted Remedy to prevent your opponent from recovering their life. Yes, Erebos, God of the Dead works too and will eventually become a 5/7 creature. Why not both? Tainted Remedy benefits you in that if they attempt to gain life they lose it, but Erebos gives you a creature.

Just don't have both out or Erebos will cancel out Remedy, as they can't gain the life to lose it.
