Trespasser's Curse Discussion

I have no 3 drop artifacts the hard find is usually Trespasser's Curse, the artifacts for the combo come easily. Glint Nest crane often buries the curse but is Sooo good at digging this deck

I would suggest replacing Ruin Rat with Aether Poisoner. I don't see why you would need the exile effect, so even if you don't want to swing, it's just as good. It also opens up for using Glint-Sleeve Siphoner.

If you plan on making use of God-Pharoah's Gift, include 2-3 copies of Gate to the Afterlife. Otherwise you will end up with the gift in hand, before you get the gate half of your games, and im not sure you want that.

Your curve is very low, so the curse seems bad. If you plan on making a high tempo play by investing in a one-drop on t1, then you don't want to immediately fall behind again on turn 2/3. If you want to slowly drain, may I suggest a card like Torment of Scarabs. You will unlikely want to play Trespasser's Curse before turn 4 anyway, and by then they will only have to play around 4-6 creatures to beat you. Torment of Scarabs on the other hand, will likely trigger 3-5 times, which should grant you better value.

Also be aware that Walk the Plank does not hit merfolk, which will likely soon be very relavant.

Thank you for your suggestions! I've been thinking about adding Ruthless Sniper for a while, but now that I have Key to the City, it makes the Sniper that much better. I like the idea of Stinging Shot as a sideboard option at least.

As for Trespasser's Curse, I do have a friend at my local FNM who has a scary token deck (like, 80 humans levels of scary). I do see your point about creature deterrence, but let's play a little game of "devil's advocate": perhaps the opposite would happen, and that people with creature-based decks would be encouraged to cast creatures more often to try to overwhelm me. I might keep them in for now, but your point is completely valid and well received. Thanks again!

i had a Trespasser's Curse in my zombie deck and i'm not too sure its that effective there and i think the same here. even though its a nice effect, i don't think you have enough in the deck to really keep it. All the -1-1 counters are going to deter him away from dropping guys anyway... maybe more of a sideboard.

I like trying out something related to help you with that card draw from the The Scorpion God with more counters. Maybe Stinging Shot -1-1 counters plus the added effect of cycling if they dont have fliers. Or Subtle Strike or Ruthless Sniper. idk any card to build that snake army

Try and trim it down to 60 cards, and 24 lands. If you can get the curve low enough 22 lands would be fine. I like the theme a lot, and you have a decent amount of bleed effects, but you lack a little in the way of removal. Try and get some more in there, and drop some of your conditional cards like Trespasser's Curse and Compulsory Rest.

Doesn't Panharmonicon + Trespasser's Curse + Dowsing Dagger  Flip only drain for 8?

Your deck shares some superficial similarities to my Get a Life, Licia

Since the Act of gaining Life is more important than how much life you gain and since most of your creatures are very small with almost no recursion, and your commander is targeted removal on a stick, I would take out some of the field wipes, removal, and mana rocks.

If you want specifics:

  1. Vizkopa Confessor
  2. Beacon of Immortality
  3. Skeletal Scrying
  4. Swords to Plowshares
  5. Shrine of the Forsaken Gods
  6. Boon Reflection
  7. Trespasser's Curse
  8. Bontu's Last Reckoning
  9. Day of Judgment
  10. Deadly Tempest
  11. Debt to the Deathless
  12. Charcoal Diamond
  13. Marble Diamond
  14. Thran Dynamo
  15. Worn Powerstone
  16. Gideon Jura

The decks ive seen like this one are just mad crazy. Ive seen people use Torment of Hailfire along with Trespasser's Curse and Torment of Scarabs. Another version I've seen had approach with Treasure Map  Flip. Maybe you can get your mana fixing with that. I'm a bit against control decks at the moment so lol.
