Tainted Wood Discussion

This looks like a fun casual deck.

I would up the Crumbling Ashes to a 4 of, as it is just too great in a deck like this to leave. Also Necroskitter is a powerhouse in a deck like this, so you might want to run 4.

Sunscorched Desert doesn't do you very much, and 4 isn't enough green sources (or red). with the number of swamps it this deck, Tainted Wood can probably be as good as Bayou. So maybe cut back to 11 swamps, 4 Tainted Wood, 2 Rugged Highlands (better than Shivan Oasis), 4 Desert, and 4 Savage Lands.

Hey, I didn't realize that Tainted Wood isn't modern legal. Sorry about that man. It seems stupid to me that it's banned and Overgrown Tomb isn't. Probably has something to do with Eldrazi.

Well if you're going to keep all those swamps I would use Tainted Wood for sure. Dirt cheap, and effective

You know, I really like the idea of sacrificing Viridian Emissary for mana ramp. As much as I like young wolf's undying you might consider ditching him for Blisterpod just for the mana. I feel like you're going to have a problem casting Soulcage Fiend early because of this double black mana cost. Since your ramp is green you're probably going to want to have more forest cards than swamps so you don't get mana screwed in the early game. Also your land base is really light; I don't think 20 lands is going to cut it here. You're definitely going to need to add some B/G lands like Overgrown Tomb, Woodland Cemetery, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, or Jungle Hollow, depending on your needs / budget. I'm not completely sold on Disciple of Griselbrand as a morbid enabler, but I can't think of anything else at the moment. But overall I think this idea is very interesting and could be super fun deck. +1

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.

Okay, so first off, get rid of Sol Ring, scrub. Secondly, some potentially good fast mana sources would be Songs of the Damned, Cabal Ritual, Dark Ritual, and/or Culling the Weak.

Now on to the real meat:

Perpetual Timepiece, Elixir of Immortality, Primal Command, Piper's Melody (and friends)

These are good for grabbing your GY so you don't mill yourself out or to protect yourself from enemy Bojuka Bogs and such.

Combo 1:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo

  • Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
  • Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
  • Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.

Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.

Combo 2:

Necrotic Ooze Combo

Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.

Combo 3:

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo

This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.

  • Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
  • In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
  • Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.

This gets around player Hexproof and graveyard hate, so you don't have to worry about things like Leyline of Sanctity and Leyline of the Void with this combo, unlike the other two.

Combo 4:

Colorless Mana Combo

  • Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
  • Play Nim Deathmantle.
  • Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
  • Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
  • Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens

Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

Hey, that trade looks good to me. I do want to warn you that the Putrefy and Golgari Rot Farm having a few edges due to being played without sleeves. I can provide pictures if needed. I also adjusted set of the cards to represent which ones I have. This is Tainted Wood is the dual decks version, which is a little higher in price. Since the other cards show signs of being played I am not worried about the price being higher than the other versions you found. Just let me know how you would like to progress further. Also, just wanted to verify you life in the US, right?
