Undercity Informer Discussion

buffy on An.....Interesting Idea

4 days ago

So I've been brainstorming about possible deck ideas for JOU, and I need some help finding cards for one of the jankier ideas I had. The basic idea is to use Worst Fears and Daring Thief to give my opponents stuff, and then use Worst Fears to take over their turn and use all the stuff I gave them against them. Basically what I'm looking for are cards that I can gift them. An example would be Undercity Informer . I give my opponent the informer, then take over their turn with Worst Fears . I then use the Informer to sacrifice all my opponents creatures and make him mill himself.

So in conclusion: I need help finding cards that work well when I'M controlling my opponents turn. Make him punch himself in the face. Ideas?

Oh, and this is for the standard format only.

Dreadwaters doesn't really seem all that viable, late game or not. Sure, it can hit for a decent amount but, it relys on me having a decent amount of lands to make the spell even worth having in this deck.

Glimpse the Unthinkable is way out of my budget range plus, Mind Sculpt is damn near just as good.

Undercity Informer is solid when it comes to creating tokens with Oona, Queen of the Fae and Call of the Nightwing

Mind Funeral while good has a good replacement in here in the form of Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker

I do appreciate the suggestions nonetheless

Grave Betrayel is really good in this kind of deck. I have a similar one andi also use Sword of Body and Mind , Mind Funeral , and Glimpse the Unthinkable . I'm also not a big fan of Undercity Informer , maybe Thassa, God of the Sea would be better to make your stuff unblockable like Crosstown Courier or Nightveil Specter . Shapeshifter's Marrow is really good also when milling. Dreadwaters is also good late game mill. I love mill decks! +1

check mine out newts is good! and stuff! immortal servitude and tenasious dead are heavy hitters tenacious plus caulron plus dark prohecy = 3 mana gain 3 life and draw a card really powerful. just ignore the blue in my deck its aqn experiment. i would ditch corpse haulers for Immortal Servitude 4 cauldrons cause they get taken out ALOT. also Undercity Informer and tenacious dead make a decent alternate win con.

Pretty cool deck idea, I really like your formatting with the description, it looks really formal.

As for my suggestions I definitely think you should put that Liliana in there if you can. She'll provide disadvantage for your opponent and provide "advantage" for you by putting your reanimation creatures into the graveyard.

As for my own suggestions I would consider running Dismember for your creature removal. It isn't as reliable, but is easier to cast than most other removal. This will also allow you to use your hand disruption on their larger creatures and save these for their smaller ones.

In addition to that I would also recommend running Geralf's Messenger , one of my favorite black creatures. He'll give you 3 devotion, has a great ETB ability, hits hard, and can give you a creature to sacrifice for Undercity Informer .

Lastly Vampire Nighthawk is ALWAYS a good choice and could help you through the mid-game. Maybe not a main board card, but certainly sideboardable, most likely against weenie decks.

ElPared, thanks for the comment! I really like the idea of Stinkweed Imp , I think it would definitely help my early game. I do agree that Dread Return would be a better choice for reanimation, but unfortunately it's banned in Modern. That's why I'm running white, and also because of the synergy between Lingering Souls and Undercity Informer (Mortify is nice to deal with Leylines and Birthing Pod , too). Now, as much as I like Bridge from Below , its use may be hampered by the fact that it says that I have to sacrifice nontoken creatures. On top of that, save for Inquisition of Kozilek on myself, it can't do much to get it out of my hand. If I decide to add Liliana of the Veil , I'll reconsider that choice, but for now it seems like too much of the deck would have to change to add that card. Dark Prophecy I like a lot. I think that it could fit in well without having to change much about the deck. I'm a bit wary about overloading the 3-CMC slot, so I'll take a look and see what I can take out for it. And as for Bojuka Bog , I chose that just to add to the Expedition Map toolkit. I do agree that Leyline of the Void is much better with Bridge from Below .

the deck's very slow to start. I'd suggest using Stinkweed Imp for several reasons, not the least of which is Dredge 5. It's an overused card for a reason. It also doesn't get foiled by your first card being a land, it's just 5 cards every time.

Dark Prophecy might be a great card for you in this deck too. 3 Devotion, card draw and works off your sacrificed tokens or whatever.

other than Lingering Souls I don't see much use for white in this deck. you could easily replace Unburial Rites with Dread Return which will also work nicely with Dark Prophecy .

I think Bridge from Below would also be awesome here. Undercity Informer fills both of its roles: Killing your creatures and putting more bridges in your graveyard.

Leyline of the Void could also be amazing if you add bridges. Maybe as a 1 of. I'd rather see it in the deck than Bojuka Bog though.
