Tribute to Hunger Discussion

Kjartan on Control Freak ($20-$45)

I would say some combination of Doom Blade, Victim of Night, (Devour Flesh/Tribute to Hunger) and if it's not too expensive, Go for the Throat, would be better. (If you can afford Go for the Throat, play some.)

Also Hydroblast isn't legal either. Sorry :(

I agree. Stormbreath Dragon is good for anyone playing white so you might want to pick up a couple, at least for a sideboard. There are also plain manlands like Ghitu Encampment. I would maindeck 2 Terminate and have 2 in the sideboard. Dreadbore is also really important to have as it removes walkers, depending on how frequently you see them you want none in the main and 2-3 in the side. I like to have a couple Tribute to Hunger in the sideboard too for hexproof\indestructible guys.

UpperDeckerTaco on Enough Lands...Or Need More?

1 month ago

KumaBozu since you're the only one who commented on this, I would like your opinion on something. Here is a list of cards I find undwhelming in my list and a list of replacements I was thinking about:

Countersquall ---> Arcane Denial

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh ---> Thirst for Knowledge

Leyline of Anticipation ---> Faithless Looting

Duplicant ---> Reality Shift

Liliana of the Veil ---> Tribute to Hunger

Word of Seizing ---> Dark Petition

Silumgar's Command ---> Search for Azcanta  Flip

Reasons:

Arcane Denial answers more than Countersquall does and is easier to cast.

Thirst for Knowledge offers more card draw and filtering along with synergy with my general whereas Nicol Bolas is powerful but doesn't really fit the mold of the deck.

Tribute to Hunger is instant speed and is a spell which interacts more with my deck and offers a bit of lifegain, although, Liliana can win independent games and is very controlling and reusable if not dealt with.

Faithless Looting is card filtering and lower on the curve where Leyline only turns about 1/3 of my deck into instant speed. I understand Leyline being powerful and letting me cast wraths on my opponents turn or something else that is big game, but it seems like late game, it isn't necessary.

Reality Shift is a cheaper to cast, spell version of Duplicant.

Silumgar's Command seems underwhelming in general and expensive whereas Search for Azcanta  Flip has a lot of early and late game value.

Word of Seizing is a tough one to rid myself of because of how swinging it can be. But Dark Petition would just be better to find the direct spells I need.

So what are your thoughts on this matter?

Is Liliana too good to pass on? Is Tribute worth it? Are the cards given to the opponent from arcane denial back breaking? Is Shift giving them a 2/2 manifest horrendous? Is Leyline too good not to use? Is Dark Petition too many tutors with Vampiric and Demonic already in the deck? Is Seizing overrated?

Any help would be great. Thank you.

Poseidon31 on Modern Mono Black Aggro on a budget

I would replace Tombstalker with Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Bone Picker with Vampire Nighthawk and would add 2 copies of Doomblade.

Than you need more Lifelink, to use the Whip as a crucial finisher and the Arena as a card draw, without high selfdamage, maybe with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Tribute to Hunger. Normally your opponent will only have one or two creatures on the board. Therefore Tribute to Hunger is more efficient as Consume Spirit. Then you need something against Aggro or Token Decks. Yahenni's Expertise should do its job, and can bring you a Nighthawk or else back on the board, after you cleared it.

Those creatures are all double black for your devotion to black.

I run a siilar deck, maybe you give it a look:You played a creature? And.... its gone!.

Hyperalgialysis on Monoblack vampire tribe help

It looks pretty solid to be honest. If you are having trouble pist the match ups you are struggling with and the community will be happy to help you work through them. I think burn is going to be problematic since it can deal so much damage so fast. If this is the case for you things like Essence Extraction Tribute to Hunger and Tendrils of Corruption are all ways to stem the bleeding. You could toss in fetch lands to thin your library, and it would help you run Skeletal Scrying intead of Sign in Blood. Also fetch lands help a ton with Bloodghast. Get a pair of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so your Mutavault can tap for black too. This would also help with fetch lands since they could just tap for black instead of causing you life loss. I wouldnt go overboard with fetchs either 8 to 6 would be more than enough. Instead of Victim of Night Go for the Throat is about as good as it gets, with things like Grasp of Darkness and Tragic Slip being pretty good too.

Funkydiscogod on Playing with lives (ULTRA BUDGET)

2 months ago

Ooh...I love Ultra-Budget brews.

I've always thought Heroes Remembered would make a good 1-drop for a lifegain deck, but it seems to me that for your deck, it doesn't matter how much life you gain, only that you gained life. So, quantity over quality, shall we say.

Let me recommend Survival Cache as a replacement for Healing Hands.

I feel like Path of Bravery can fit in to your deck somewhere.

And even though Murder is the best targeted kill spell, there are some life-gaining kill spells that you might consider, like Tribute to Hunger, Consuming Vapors, Feast of Blood and Midnight Charm.

You might have enough generic costs in your deck to be able to support a playset of Radiant Fountain.

Anyway, I'm just brainstorming.

They may have printed a card to replace Tribute to Hunger: Fatal Push.
