Unearth Discussion

@SynergyBuild: Well, how I do my share of Bumping is O.V. the Top, so we're even. Alright, maybe Predict should be out of the Question; the Primer above posted on March 14th stated stuff like Unearth , & even Reanimate are both trash. So at least we have 3 pieces we can confirm are not truly needed.

I mentioned the combo as a joke combo, even though , , & even will never get their "Planarshifted-Styled" variant on Doomsday ; but just imagine what the name for the mono-color variants outside of the original: = (I can't think of one right now... X/) = (I still dunno...X/) (I'm thinking of some kind of name for either that's one word, but is like a Doomsday situation, but in those colors.)

That said, I think I might have my package settled for this case...

Frantic Search , Gush (Or something...), Pact of Negation , Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . If I had a challenge for card creation, it's simple, make a "Functional" version of Doomsday for all but mono colors but . Do you thin this can work? I added Pact as a protective element. In case you wanted to know...

Prolly not Predict. I remember the predict combo tho:

Predict , Laboratory Maniac , Unearth , Gitaxian Probe , Street Wraith

It is pretty simple.

For a rakdos doomsday combo: Grenzo, Dungeon Warden , Zealous Conscripts , Goblin Sledder , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Priest of Urabrask

The line is draw+cast+activate Grenzo, then flip priest, get 3, use 2 for activation, hit Kiki, copy, priest, have 4, activate again, hit sledder, then sacrifice sledder to itself targeting Grenzo, so it is a 3/3, activate again, hit Conscripts, untap Kiki, go infinite, swing, win.

This is a cool subject and angle to work from. My immediate thoughts took a direction with Call to the Netherworld / Grave Scrabbler (maybe Unearth ) for extra value and Foul-Tongue Shriek / Gruesome Fate for a 'get-around' in a tight spot. Time to get brewing I think!

geojoe, thanks so much for checking out my deck. I hope you do well with it. In addition to the Exhume , I am already running 4 Unearth . I agree with the more draw cards. But because the deck has two main combos (check the description), most opening hands will have either one of them. And when I play the deck, that statement remains true. Also, often times I have used Sign in Blood just to deal damage.

How about this? Make the changes that you see fit, play with it a bit, and then contact me again and tell me if it was more efficient or less efficient.

@SynergyBuild: Sorry. My nostalgia for an amazing game of yore got the best of me. Please disregard.

Anyways, I wanted to add a new level of restriction for whatever means necessary when having your Doomsday Package exiled. My above post stated three primary ways to lost this; so recursion like Unearth , & Reanimate are all out. I already have the Primer up there, as well as making my own for Superfriends; though I dunno how to hardcode this as well as the one above. As I stated earlier:

: Frantic Search , Gush , Pact of Negation (?), Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: Basically any Cantrip.

: Dark Ritual , Night's Whisper , Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: ???

Then again, for laughs, I wanted to also include a only Doomsday Package, but that's for another time.

But as I'm also making a Primer, I'd like to ask someone how to do it in a way the one above does this... I, mean, I'm thinking of a 1-5 Star Rating system as well...

@SynergyBuild:

WARNING

The big enemy is approaching at full throttle. According to the data, it is identified as "1000-Ri no kuroi mibōjin/1000人の黒い未亡人/The 1000 Black Widows".

(Man... I freaking loved IKARUGA. Great memories; even with a great score, awesome gameplay mechanics, I think this is what Neptune was referring to about Old School Games having the greatest nostalgi- WAIT! Nostalgia is s---! I'm trying to develop a Colorless Planeswalker OC in terms of having only as the Mana color, while being human! What would this require? I got to make a second verion of that form post again... Crap.)

/endrant.

Apparently I forgot to mention one minor detail about Graveyards; they can become Exile Zones entirely; how? How's this: Rest in Peace , Planar Void & (ESPECIALLY) Leyline of the Void . So, grave use is out when it comes to recurring anything. As a Result; Unearth , & Reanimate are both out...

Here are the two patterns so far:

: Frantic Search , Gush , Pact of Negation (?), Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: Basically any Cantrip.

: Dark Ritual , Night's Whisper , Laboratory Maniac , & Gitaxian Probe . Package Cracker: ???

I understand you are currently in a bind about this; so I hope this helps:

That is sadly a bit of the anti-synergy with Doomsday. More interaction makes for a less efficient pile, generally. I wouldn't worry too much if piling countermagic is suddenly making them less efficient, that's normal. Sadly without things like LED it is a bit tough. Without LED I tend to advocate for Predict / Unearth piles. Might be able to weave in something there. LED does also make interaction piles much harder to pull off, since discarding your hand is a definite choke point where someone can interaction with you and kill you.

Just from a practical point of view, I tend not to pile protection much. I rather would try and grab protection before or cast DD when I think the coast is clear. Sadly, by nature of how DD works, it's hard to play around everything, even if you have some room in the pile.

Sorry it's a bit of a non-answer, but it's also what I've found to be better. I tend to avoid piling protection unless it's just required no matter what, and rather try to plan more when I slam DD.

ZypherW on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave

This deck looks pretty good. Similar to my own Vultron-ish Skullbriar deck.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is another hasty +1 counter creature that has built-in protection.

Suspicious Bookcase , Canopy Cover , and Prowler's Helm are other ways to get Skullbriar and friends through enemy defenses.

Nim Deathmantle , Journey to Eternity  Flip, Supernatural Stamina , Stitch Together and Unearth are great graveyard recursions (especially because Skullbriar keeps counters even in the graveyard).

Eternal Thirst , Feast on the Fallen and Predatory Hunger might be good +1 counter editions depending on your group's meta.

If you can afford it, Doubling Season doesn't help your opponents like Primal Vigor does and it has the same effect.

Vraska, Regal Gorgon might have a bit higher CMC, but I think fits your deck a little more than your current Vraska.

Assassin's Trophy , Windgrace's Judgment and Beast Within are good removal spells in Golgari colors.

Withstand Death , Rush of Vitality , Heroic Intervention and Destined / Lead are good protection cards

Finally, Sword of Vengeance , Pelt Collector , Lightning Greaves , and Alpha Authority are just overall good cards that you might find helpful in your deck.
