Tribute to Hunger Discussion

almerican on How to get rid of ...

Anything that doesn't target the creature but still effects it like mass destruction: Supreme Verdict, Damnation or End Hostilities

Or things that target the player controlling the creature like sacrifice effects: Tribute to Hunger, Crackling Doom, or Cruel Edict

thanks for the upvotes guys!

CurdBrosBrewingCo: i've been excited about sultai charm since it was spoiled unfortunately before the banning of Treasure Cruise it seemed mediocre in a format where almost no one looses gas but now with the new meta shifts it might finally be time for a true control deck to post decent some results without relying on a burn to win strategy lol.

Freeble thanks for the suggestions, i really like the idea of Tribute to Hunger despite it being 3 drop, until now i had pretty much figured that bogles was a very bad to unbeatable matchup but this gives me a glimmer of hope lol. i kept finding that the other suggestions either prolonged the game unnecessarily causing too many draws or proved too much of an anti-synergy with the draw & go style of the deck

For sweepers, Crux of Fate looks to be a good budget option, as well as Consume the Meek (the most budget one, prob a one-of with some spot removal). I love Think Twice as usual, as well as 1 or 2 Mystical Teachings. Tribute to Hunger is nice for stabilizing, or Consuming Vapors. Repeal is just a really nice tempo play. Glen Elendra Archmage or Dralnu, Lich Lord are creatures you'd like.

APPLE01DOJ on Nihilistic Pulse - MonoBlack sacrifice at its best

1 month ago

I like it! I have a mono black deck all foiled out built around sacrifice.

You could add in a Sword of Light and Shadow (Protect your Returners from eating a Path to Exile

I find 1x Grave Pact to be the right number. U could add in some... Geth's Verdict Tribute to Hunger or Killing Wave

I assume this is budget but Liliana of the Veil would do this deck wonders.

I think I would SB the Dross Harvester in favor of MB Phyrexian Arena ...another alternative could be 2x Vampire Nighthawk. They can gain u quite a bit of life if left unchecked.

This was my first magic deck. It's mono-black midrange. It ramps into Sheoldred, Whispering One and the sacrifice theme is rampid throughout the deck... Geth's Verdict, Tribute to Hunger Grave Pact Phyrexian Obliterator Desecration Demon..

The deck does well vs fair decks but obviously crumbles to unfair decks.

...Beyond that I've been running a more competitive rogue brew of Mono Black Control.

Deck is hard to play but kicks ass when u know how to use it.

Lastly, while certainly not an established archetype yet I'm currently playing

. It's a super well balanced deck. Very unforgiving but extremely versatile. (U need to know ur match ups!) Most of the time this is classified as a "Dredgevine Deck". I'd recommend it to those who can't afford Dark Confidant and Tarmogoyf

I prefer kill cards that can target creatures, so I like Tragic Slip or Dismember over Tribute to Hunger and Geth's Verdict, but it's whatever your preference is. I usually have an easy time getting Tragic Slip's morbid effect to activate.

Nykthos = not budget

Seize = Not Budget

I have Tribute to Hunger to trigger combo, the lifelink from Whip of Erebos trigger, Blood Artist, extort on Crypt Ghast, lifelink on Vampire Nighthawk and also Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives my creatures intimidate.

Anything is legal in casual play regarding the Demonic Tutor

Dismember is more consistent. Tragic Slip is really predictable and can get outplayed fairly easily.

The guildmage combo is cool but it's a monocoloured deck and splashing is not worth it, I might as well make it an Orshov which is my least favourite guild.

The deck is slow but also severely casual. Plus, I only need one Crypt Ghast to stick for a single turn before everything gets out of hand for my opponent. That's turn five. I have Nighthawks, Bloodlords and Denizens to stall until then.

UnknownDemon on EDH decks based on religions?

Ok first of all if this thread insults anyone im srry. These color combinations are mostly based on stereotypes.

Christianity - Orzhov

Why: First i was thinking that this should be white because of obvious reference cards like Wrath of God and Crusade. But i feel like Christianity tries to look like mono-white but deep down inside its more white black.

Cards: For commander i was thinking that Selenia, Dark Angel could fit well. Other cards i might include are: several angels, several clerics, Greed, False Prophet, Damnation, Chapel Geist, Preacher, Orzhova, the Church of Deals, Temple of the False God, Divine Light, Wrath of God, Angelic Armaments, Bonds of Faith, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary (This would be Jesus), Brilliant Halo, Call To Serve, Crusade, Angel of Despair, Public Execution, Mortify Demonic Torment, Retribution of the Meek, Divine Intervention, Elite Inquisitor, Rule of Law, Miraculous Recovery, Heliod, God of the Sun, Day of Judgment and Venser's Journal (Holy Bible).

Islam - Boros

Why: White because Islam is much like christianity and red because some people for some reason seem to think that Islam = Terrorists and as i told you before these are based around stereotypes.

Cards: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran could be the commander. Other cards could be False Prophet, Crusade, Wrath of God, Artillerize, boros colored soldiers, several cards from Arabian Nights, several angels, Faith's Reward, Divine Intervention, Miraculous Recovery, Rule of Law and Temple of the False God.

Satanism - Rakdos

Why: R/B is full of demons and devils so it fits perfectly.

Cards: Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch or Boris Devilboon both seem to fit as commanders. Exava is however a bit better card than Boris so i think im going for her. Other cards would be several witches, demons and devils, Greed, Artillerize, Tears of Rage, Dark Ritual, Duress, Bad Moon, several shamans, Tribute to Hunger, Promise of Power, Sign in Blood, Demonic Tutor, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Zombify, Damnation, Hellfire, Do or Die, Rise from the Grave, Burn at the Stake, Temple of the False God, Blood Speaker, Hell's Caretaker and Victimize

Hinduism - Golgari

Why: Hinduism focuses on cycle of life and death. Golgari has the most graveyard focus so it fits nicely.

Cards: Pharika, God of Affliction is the best fit because of its activated ability. It makes a dead creature reincarnate as a snake. Other cards could be Cremate, Reincarnation, Symbiotic Wurm, Golgari Germination, Brindle Shoat, Deadly Grub, Dripping-Tongue Zubera, Flesh Carver, Hooded Hydra, Mitotic Slime, Mongrel Pack, Ogre Slumlord, Elephant Guide, Gutter Grime, Seize the Soul, Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, Temple of the False God, Apprentice Necromancer, Doomed Necromancer, Hell's Caretaker, self-mill cards and Tukatongue Thallid.

Shinto - Selesnya

Why: Green for kami and white for samurais.

Cards: Kei Takahashi as the commander. Other cards would be from kamigawa block mostly.

Atheism - Izzet

Why: I want this to be kind of a science deck and red blue is the best colors for that.

Cards: Jhoira of the Ghitu is the commander because its ability is like putting something in development. Other cards include: Brainstorm, Compulsive Research, Electrolyze, Essence Backlash, Izzet Charm, Overwhelming Intellect, Ral Zarek, Mizzium Transreliquat, Archaeomancer, Mercurial Chemister, Deep Analysis, Epic Experiment, Fabricate, Teleportal, Civilized Scholar  Flip, Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip, Vivisection, Gitaxian Probe, Shrapnel Blast, Ornithopter, Scuttling Doom Engine, Karn, Silver Golem, Ensoul Artifact, Steam Augury and several constructs.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? I apologize if someone found any of this insulting.
