Tainted Remedy Discussion

Blobby_Bobby on Mogis, God of Demons

Saw the last update was adding Heartless Hidetsugu which rules with Mogis, but whybreplace Command Tower? Why not a basic land. Command Tower is a superior land. Maybe you needed to swap it into another deck?

I'm also partial to Tainted Remedy or Rain of Gore for Mogis, life gain is bad for group slug and demon aggro.

Also Dictate of Erebos synergizes really well when you have hungry demons eating tokens and opponents are forced to block. Just adds so much more pain. It works real nice with things like Abhorrent Overlord.

Lol, I don't think anybody in modern plays Tainted Remedy in their mainboard or sideboard unless they're trying to make a really janky deck. Its highly unlikely that you'll ever run into the card. Also, in modern, lifegain decks aren't considered competitive or played enough to have people use sideboard or mainboard slots for it.

EmersonFarrari that's a good suggestion, but they don't contribute to life gain and can only target creatures. In a match up against a deck like this you have to be ready for cards like Tainted Remedy or Rain of Gore.

[email protected]_only on Thant is where the attack is.

so, a couple of suggestion enchantments:

Bulwark & Dark Suspicions: deals damage to each opponent equal to the difference in cards in hand between you and them. pair with Painful Quandary for ultimate pain

Rain of Gore and Tainted Remedy are good substitutes for the "no gain life" effects. because watching Oloro decks kill themselves with their passive is hysterical

Pristine Talisman with Oloro on board essentially becomes ": Draw a card". And in case you're not aware, Beacon of Immortality and Tainted Remedy will one shot someone.

Portcullis maybe? Barbed Wire, Tainted Remedy

Vampiric Link on a creature is good cheap life gain. On Heartless Hidetsugu its a wincon.

Ditch the Vivid lands for a Rakdos Guildgate and damn near any other red/black land.

Possibility Storm won't hurt you much because almost all your cards do similar things but it REALLY screws over a lot of decks.
