Unholy Strength Discussion

Neotrup on Protection from creatures and Awakening ...

1 month ago

No. Protection prevents 4 things:

Damage - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be damaged by creatures.
Equipping/enchanting - Not relevant with Holy Mantle, but White Knight can't be enchanted with Unholy Strength.
Blocked - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be blocked by creatures, which is to say it cannot be blocked.
Targeted - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be targeted by abilities of creatures (like Shriekmaw's ability).

As Wakening Sun's Avatar's ability doesn't target or deal damage, it's not effected by protection.

Edzew on Discard - Specter

1 month ago

unfortunately the cheapest casting cost Specter in modern is 3 mana.

BUT there are a couple good ones to chose from in that 3 Mana range. you already have the Hippy, and Lili. but there are also Needle Specter and Nightveil Specter though that last one is a bit iffy, it could be fun though. there are two others in the 3 mana range but one is 3 colors Red, Black, Blue... Sedraxis Specter. the other one uses Infect Whispering Specter i personally dislike Infect, but it is a kinda nifty thing it uses infect for.

now the Needle Specter could be fun with some Unholy Strength or if you add in some Adaptive Automaton

also (just as a side note) if you can keep your Specters in the 3 to 4 mana range (for the most part) you might want to add in (if you can) a couple Aether Vial that is if you already have a couple, they are a bit expensive so... but those could be good replacements for your Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual they are not needed, just a thought if you have them, and if you dont maybe keep an eye out for a couple in trade.

Deathdragon on Would "Phyrexia" or "Yawgmoth" Be ...

User:DemonDragonJ yes I do think that would make a great metal album cover and song name, when you think about it a lot of cards would make amazing titles for metal song like Carnage Tyrant, Damnation, and Unholy Strength

Icbrgr on Old art for Unuoly Strength

@cdkime lol yeah that compare/contrast really does make the art nonsensical... Glad that they eventually gave it the art we see today Unholy Strength especially with the ying-yang concept with Holy Strength.

For anyone following along:

Alpha: Unholy Strength

Fourth Edition: Unholy Strength

The Fourth Edition one is so incredibly goofy looking. I love how clearly Wizards half-assed the removal of the pentagram, simply painting over the background, rendering the artwork nonsensical.

HorseFist on Old art for Unuoly Strength

Hey everybody, just a quick fun trivial kinda question that I'm sure someone out there can answer quickly:

What year/in which set was the "Satanic" upside-down burning pentagram in background of Unholy Strength removed??

Bonus points if you can tell me whether decision was voluntary/internal or was influenced by outside source/group.

LostDragon01 on Rakdos Cackler Turn 1 Win - PDH

5 months ago

wraya2 Im very like the idea of killing opponent in 2nd turn or 3d.

But, what chance of it? I consider "stable" deck that have 50% chance of do_key_thing at turn N. If in your deck you dont killing opponent until turn 4, you most likely lose.

I tryed to run 6 playtests and i was forced to mullingan 5 of this times because i had no lands in hand. So, my first suggestion is add 4-5 lands. 31 would be fine for early Ramp decks like Elves, but you better to have starting hand always with two lands.

My second suggestion is have more mana on turn 1-2: Lotus Petal, Simian Spirit Guide for example.

Dragon Mantle better then Crown of Flames, but i suggest to remove it at all, because it wouldn't help you to win on turn 2-3
Furor of the Bitten and Taste for Mayhem better then Unholy Strength

KayneMarco: As a Pauper EDH deck, you can only use one uncommon creature as the Commander, and only commons in the 99. Unfortunately neither of those two cards were ever printed/released at common, so they wouldn't be legal. =)

As for the deck...

Echo Circlet & Vanguard's Shield for starters. Plus Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield also because you want to keep him untapped and able to block as well as attack. There're other vigilance enablers like True-Faith Censer, too.

Bone Saw & Bonesplitter because you don't really care about his Strength. Maybe even things like Unholy Strength and Predator's Gambit.

So I guess I'm thinking voltron. Which would include things like Bladed Pinions, maybe Flayer Husk and Sickleslicer.

Then of course Vault of Whispers and Darksteel Citadel to help justify that Cranial Plating you got there.

Costly Plunder + Ichor Wellspring / Mycosynth Wellspring.

Night's Whisper should be here. you might like Dash Hopes for late game security, but it's probably useless early on.

I'd also recommend a LOT of recursion/reanimation, that way you can just let your commander die, then get 'em back to avoid Commander-tax. Things like Macabre Waltz, Grim Discovery, etc.

Both Exalted creatures, too? Servant of Nefarox and Duty-Bound Dead.

I'm just tossing out ideas, so maybe something there can help get you started! =)
