sirtrojan on Infect+fight?

1 month ago

My opponents Phyrexian Crusader and my Advocate of the Beast are on the battlefield, I played Time to Feed what happens now?

My opponent argues that infect will happen first/simultaneously, dealing damage to my creature and I not being able to deal damage because of infect making my creature a 0/1 as the fight happens.

I believe that both creatures get delt their respective damage at the same time, and the result leaves my creature as a 0/1 and his taking the 2 damage, enough to kill it.

What happens when a creature wit infect goes against a regular creature? Does my creature get to do his damage? Or is the infect taking affect first? Someone please clear this all up

A "burn and big guys" strategy is a time-honored classic in Magic, but most of the big guys you're considering aren't that big, and the burn that you're considering isn't that good. Shock and Lightning Strike are made obsolete by Lightning Bolt, as are Hunt the Weak/Time to Feed by Prey Upon or Pit Fight (or in some cases Domri Rade). As far as creatures are concerned, I would be thinking more Birds of Paradise into Rumbling Slum, Polukranos, World Eater or Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip. Atarka's Command is also a nice and flexible utility spell if you find the room.

I feel like Nessian Asp is a too slow for what you're trying to do. Instead, you might want to consider Nemesis of Mortals. It can become a giant creature for the possibility of being low. And instead of Time to Feed, how about Warriors' Lesson? Instant speed is very useful and gives you cards.

As for black, I would run Sign in Blood. You can add cards like Foul-Tongue Shriek to gain your life back in a blink of an eye. You might also want to add Mardu Shadowspear. Because it doesn't need to connect to make the opponent lose life, it can help in the end.

Another great card with the life loss theme would be Spiteful Returned. You can either have it as a creature or an aura, depending on your situation. You can add Gnarled Scarhide as a quick creature to deal damage early in the game.

I was already considering a few of your green suggestions so having someone else suggest that means I'm on the right track. My first ever draft ran a more graveyard powered strategy with Hooting Mandrills but it felt too black in play style. So far my green list (in undecided quantities) looks like this

-Elvish Mystic

-Whisperer of the Wilds

-Setessan Oathsworn

-Conifer Strider

-Nessian Asp

-Stampeding Elk Herd

-Aspect of Hydra

-Epic Confrontation or Savage Punch

-Time to Feed

-Defend the Hearth

-Ordeal of Nylea

-Ranger's Guile or Mortal's Resolve

-and maybe Tread Upon if theres still room

The black suggestion are all great and I was already considering those removal cards except for Self-Inflicted Wound because these decks wont have sideboards so I can't be anti-specific colour without wasting cards. I want card draw in it, but I'm afraid Sign in Blood is a weakness when in a surprisingly fast meta between all these decks. Is there something else you could suggest?

If you wanted to add in four Sunpetal Grove to splash some white and maybe some Temple of Plenty for some scrylands, you can definitely do that. It gives you Path to Exile, Banishing Light, Prison Term, Oblivion Ring etc. I wouldn't go Time to Feed because in some situations it's not always good. You may have a bigger creature, but in an instant, the opponent can make their creature bigger than yours. That's why I would say Beast Within because it's destroy target permanent. You can literally target any permanent on the board and destroy it :) the only cost is a 3/3 beast token. So planeswalkers, lands, creatures, enchantments etc.

Time to Feed may work for removal if'n my creature is bigger than theirs. Removal wouldn't be an issue if I just added some more White stuff; I could easily add things like Journey to Nowhere, for instance. Decisions decisions.
