Tormented Soul Discussion

lagotripha on The Deck That Says "YEET, NOPE"- My Friends 2016

4 days ago

I've messed around with some unblockable builds in the past- things I've seen work well have been Hands of Binding and friends, alongside Biomass Mutation.

For other unblockable spirits in various budgets, Ghastlord of Fugue, Nether Traitor, Tormented Soul, Hunted Phantasm are worth a look. The big trick is managing to pump out the damage with the unblocked creatures or get other fun effects- I've seen Curiosity, Tainted Strike, Phyresis, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Oona's Blackguard, Paranoid Delusions, Call of the Nightwing Skullsnatcher, Stronghold Rats, Helm of the Ghastlord, Mephidross Vampire/Necropolis Regent, you name it. Its all about deciding how you want to make that unblockable damage into an unstoppable advantage

Ryjo Oh okay! :D here :D

Black-5 Budget

Blue-5 Control

With blue, you need some early damage and draw cards. With that you can start with a momentary early draw against opponent, allowing counters and freezing cards to enter hand. With those, lock down game with constant draw. Slow kill, but hard to break if it the draw is good. :)

With black, an early Tormented Soul is needed to allow other cards to deal the correct damage. To allow you time, there is easy discard. You can win the game quickly if you get the correct cards, at the correct times. :)

I want advice if you can give it for 15 cents or less cards.

The Urborg Panther, Breathstealer and Feral Shadow combo isn't going to come off often at all, and those creatures are a bit sub-par otherwise, so I'd drop those. Knight of Dusk is also a bit overpriced, its essentially going to end up being a 2/2 unblockable for 3, except slightly worse. I'd replace those with things like Tormented Soul, the dauthi, an Ornithopter, or a Signal Pest to trigger your commander's ninjutsu. For defenses, you might like Ophiomancer and Royal Assassin, both of which should usually outperform Wall of Corpses, and the latter of which would help out your Scarblade Elite. I'd also consider putting in a Ruthless Ripper, which is good either for defense or for triggering ninjutsu.

You also might consider other stuff that like creatures dying, such as Toshiro Umezawa, Harvester of Souls, and Reaper from the Abyss.

Tormented Soul and Duty-Bound Dead have no place here. Use Necropede to replace one of them. There are plenty of other infect creatures out there even better than that. I will be back with more suggestions in that regard.

Inkmoth Nexus? Hero's Downfall?

Tormented Soul would do much more than your shadow.

Birds of Paradise in place of Tormented Soul could be an option. You trade unblockability for evasion and manafixing/ramp.

Cloudstone Curio would work well in here, even though it's pretty expensive right now. I'd also recommend more creatures that can't be blocked like Invisible Stalker, Blighted Agent, or even Tormented Soul to allow your ninjitsu creatures to get through.

First, I would like to see a playset of Thought Scour in here. It works really well with your mill mechanic, and allows you to keep drawing resources, for .

Second, I would seek out at least one more Mindcrank. With the damage you can lay down between the Jace's Phantasm and ping damage of Tormented Soul. You could make their life miserable real quick, without the combo.

(Pauses) I could make a bad.ass Esper version of this. But that's a different story...

I took out Despise for now. Only having one copy in your deck seems weak ATM. We can replace that with something more damaging. Duress and Distress can stay, as your biggest problems are counters and removal of your combo, your Doom Blades and mill cards should take care of most problems.

Do you have any Dark Favor? These could make your Tormented Soul a real headache!
