ektoe253 on gray merchant of leeches

i traded out the two Typhoid Rats for two Pain Seer .

they are foil, alternate ones (game day maybe?), but the computer wont show them when i put that in the checkboxes, so im just gonna say they are regular ones on there.i just wanted to tell you guys that cause im super stoked on those pain seers! i just got them in the mail today and have been wanting them for awhile!

ill also change the Indulgent Tormentor back to the regular version so he shows up here too.

thanks for all the suggestions so far guys, and tell me what you think about my choice to sub the rat for the pain seer.do you think it was a good call? its supposed to be pretty fast deck at the start, so considering that the Pain Seer costs 1 extra mana, it has the potential to slow down the game a bit, but i dont think it will be too dramatic because there is only two copies of it in there. agree or disagree?any other suggestions? im gonna look at the s/b and see what i could sub out to make space for Eater of Hope and Abhorrent Overlord .

i would love to put in a Hero's Downfall , but that card is too expensive, thats why i am running despise, and hopefully i can get their planeswalker discarded before it comes out. maybe i should put another copy of that in there though?

also, im thinking maybe a few Herald of Torment might go good with this deck, it would let my merchants get flying, and they would be pretty beastly with that i think.i only have one right now though, so i would have to get a few more if i wanted to put him in, because i want to use him for another deck also.

im thinking i could sub out the Typhoid Rats for the Pain Seer . i might try that out. ill change the list if im gonna think about keeping the deck that way too.

1> The blocking was already declared. He responded after blocking. The block isn't canceled for becoming illegal after the fact. However Typhoid Rats won't take damage from the Triton, so the combat is one-sided.

2> If you bounce a creature AFTER it is declared as a blocker, it still blocked, even if no damage is involved. The attacker would need trample to get damage through. If he has trample, he would deal full damage through however (as though blocked by a 0/0 pretty much).

If you want to prevent the creature from blocking, you must bounce it before blockers are declared. You won't know for sure if it will be used to block when you need to make this decision generally (outside of obvious choices like the opponent must block-or-die).

3> It doesn't matter if Gods Willing resolves before Quickling so long as you bounce the Triton before damage is dealt if you mean to save him. Since you declared him as a blocker before bouncing him, the Rats deal damage to nothing as they're still blocked, unless they get trample by surprise somehow.

i've got question about combat step and interactions between cards. Let me explain what happened today :)

It was my opponent turn. Opponent declared attackers, it was for example: Typhoid Rats . After that i declared creature to block his attack. It was Triton Shorestalker .

After that, my opponent played with Gods Willing and decided that his Typhoid Rats is protected from blue color.

1) what's going on now? Does the Typhoid Rats give me damage (as a player) and my Triton Shorestalker can't block?

2) Now i have some more additional and similar questions in my head. After i declared creatures to block - i played with Quickling and returned creature that blocks attack: Triton Shorestalker to my hand.

3) What will happen if i will answer for Gods Willing with Quickling , my Quickling will be first in stack i will return blocking creature to my hand before the Gods Willing will be executed.

I'm just wondering what will happen if i will declare blockers, then i will return them to my hand - attack goes to nowhere? or Typhoid Rats gives me damage?

hi there, i think you should take out Typhoid Rats in exchange for Ruthless Ripper .
it can provide more versatility than the rats and wouldn't hurt the budget either

I would take a look at Chief of the Edge and Chief of the Scale . Also you NEED 4x Bloodsoaked Champion . I would possibly drop 1-2 Return to the Ranks for 1-2 Whip of Erebos . Also Grim Haruspex could come out for Read the Bones . If you can get a hold of them I would definitely get 2x more Temple of Silence . Lastly check out the God's Erebos, God of the Dead and Athreos, God of Passage .

Some possible drops include Congregate , Ruthless Ripper , maybe a couple Typhoid Rats

Ruthless Ripper -> the strict upgrade to Typhoid Rats . Looks like a fun casual deck though! +1
