Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Discussion

Profet93 on Back in Black... Suicide Black

Soul Conduit or Mirror Universe just for fun? Also +1 for using Imp's mischief and Withering Boon, those (aside from Chains) are my 2 FAVORITE black cards. Who doesn't love casting withering boon by yelling kamehaha in response to an opponent's commander?

Was gonna suggest Necropotence but I saw the above thread. Adding soul conduit is a way to make your deck weaker yet still synergistic if that's what you're looking for? Conduits been a pet card of mine and I LOVE suicide black!

Maybe find room for Thespian's Stage and Expedition Map ? Stage to copy coffers. Map to find urborg, coffers, boseju, etc....

I see now way for you to deal with artifacts and enchantments. Have you considered adding Ratchet Bomb , Blast Zone , Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Nev disk, Oblivion Stone or even All Is Dust ? Adding at least one of these will give you an answer when you need it.

Ancient Tomb > Temple of False

Where is your card draw? Tome of Legends , Endless Atlas as are both cheaper and re-useable. Adding another wheel in the form of Magus of the Wheel or Wheel of Fortune could be helpful.

Imperial Recruiter - To tutor for Kiki or whatever

Feldon of the Third Path - Reuse and abuse ETBS

Might want to consider some enchantment hate in the form of Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Ratchet Bomb , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Karn Liberated or Blast Zone among others.

To diiice: I would replace Elvish Mystics with Gilded Goose and certainly add some Gruul shocklands for better manabase. For more $ you can play Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal and extra turns. People rarely see it coming. Using hatred sucks because it is additional cost to cast is life, so you can have imp's mischief as a backup to removal. Same with insidious dreams.... this deck seems very very weak to blue. Have you considered perhaps the double edged sword Defense Grid ? Or hell, since you don't care about losing life, become the blue player with Withering Boon ! Show them what a Goku shooting a kamehaha can do!

Contamination - Synergy with bitterblossom, counterspell bait, brtual.

Rings of Brighthearth - Synergy with your commander, top, aetherflux....karn, ayara, razaketh, fetches,

No Reliquary Tower for necro?

Cavern of Souls - For blue! Same with Boseiju, Who Shelters All . Volrath's Stronghold should be highly considered as well to avoid commander tax and get back important pieces.

CUTS....

This is a combo deck so Karn Liberated at 7 for removal of 1 card seems weak. Would add in Blast Zone , Karn, the Great Creator , or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon .

Lotus Petal - Seems better in decks like locust g-d with built in card advantage to mitigate the card loss. You don't have much card draw in the deck so a few timely pieces of removal and you're gone.

You should get a Doubling Season to get to their ults as soon as they are played. Also Ajani, Mentor of Heroes with Sorin, Grim Nemesis summoned with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon has won a few games for my friend who plays a Sisay deck.

I can finally say that Ugin, the Ineffable is not bad and after painstakingly beating my head against the wall to build a customized deck I am pretty confident that I am on to something here. Eledain thanks for your feedback on Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma as well as Awakening Zone . Thursday night I ran those and you were right and having them in the deck slowed it down way too much and was pointless. thanks for the heads-up!

As a real-time player I still love the feel of the actual cards in my hands and it is very hard for me to transition over to the "virtual" MTG world so I have yet to make that leap. I realize this site is great in introducing builds at the click of the button or copy & paste. I use it for the play test feature and it helps a great deal.

Tonight I came in 4th place in tournament and that was huge with what I had come up against. The first round was with a young lady running a blue Merfolk deck. I have played against her several times before messing around with different builds and she is pretty tough. the first bout she nailed me like usual and I added a sideboard just for her and shut her down. She likes to get Sea's Claim out immediately so I brought Choke to this particular event just for her. It was hilarious and the expression on her face was every bit worth the play. "Sorry dear you just got choked.. Next!" That session I was 2-0

The next match I was up against Tron and this guy was running Once Upon a Time . The only reason he got me in two rounds was his hands were one step ahead of mine and bout two I was forced to mulligan down to four cards. he took the game with a 2-0.

The third and final match was another Tron with Karn, the Great Creator and it was definitely close all three rounds. He got Karn Liberated out turn three on the first bout and I popped creator. I couldn't come back so I gave him that win. In the second game we were neck-in-neck but I side-boarded in and dropped Pithing Needle shutting down Creator came out with two Wurmcoil Engine and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for the win. Again the final match we were neck-in-neck and it was a race to the finish and laughing like champs the both of us all the way through. It was a really close game but I again came through with another choice sideboard Thought-Knot Seer and ended the match with Spirit Dragon again. I did get to pull Ineffable a few times through out the game and it proved to bare it's weight in gold and I am pretty happy with this custom build and encourage others to try it out if you ever get the chance. I might eventually add two more Karn Liberated later on to strengthen the brutality of it but Tron is so much fun to play and this build is sealed~

Thanks for stopping by my page here, have fun and see you all on the battlefield!

Cabal Coffers for ramp

How do you deal with artifacts and enchantments? Oblivion Stone , Nevinyrral's Disk , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Blast Zone , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated all come to mind.

Imp's Mischief is "counters" counterspells, redirects removal and some extra turn cards. More importantly, no one expects it from black.

I got some ideas for cuts if you're interested, lmk.

Profet93 on Let the Nightmare Go On..

Cut Swamp to go to 38 lands, 39 is too much

Cut swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade and goes with coffers and non-swamps

Cut swamp for Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or any utility land like cradle, strip mine, etc...

Murderous Rider > Hero's Downfall

Hellfire is such an expensive card that hurts you, cut for something cheaper like Dead of Winter , Mutilate or Toxic Deluge .

How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? One Rest in Peace and you lose unless you make them proactively discard it which isn't always possible. Some suggestions of budget and nonbudget include....

Karn Liberated , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Ratchet Bomb , Lux Cannon , Nevinyrral's Disk , Oblivion Stone , Boompile , Ratchet Bomb , Perilous Vault , Blast Zone etc...

Ill-Gotten Gains seems like it can backfire a large portion of the time. What is the purpose of it, to put creatures in yards or general recursion? If you're looking for recursion of black cards, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed can do the trick. General recursion can be down with Yawgmoth's Will . Artifact/Creature recursion can be done with Beacon of Unrest (not suggesting beacon, but just an idea to note).
