Penthoplayer on Teysa, Envoy of Spirits(Suggestions Wanted)

2 hours ago

Teysa's ability makes for simple buff mechanics to be wincons.

Vault of the Archangel, Paragon of Open Graves, Honor of the Pure, Bad Moon, Dictate of Heliod, Angelic Skirmisher, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Pontiff of Blight, Ajani Goldmane, Bathe in Light, and Zealous Persecution all accomplish this.

If you need a few power creatures for backup, Serra Ascendant, Divinity of Pride, Mistmeadow Skulk, Baneslayer Angel, Vampire Nighthawk and Knight of Meadowgrain are extremely strong for their costs.

Also, I find Angelic Arbiter, Sunbond, and Spectra Ward very useful.

Hey man, I like your deck idea but it seems like it might be too mixed between control and midrange. You have some good vampires, like Gatekeeper of Malakir, Vampire Nighthawk, and Olivia Voldaren, but you only run 13 creatures. I think, to have a good midrange deck, you're going to need another 5-10 creatures, including 1 and 2 drops. Also, Falkenrath Aristocrat seems anti-synergetic. Do you have purpose for it?

Alternatively, if you want to emphasize the control aspects of your deck you can focus on cards like Keranos, God of Storms and Cruel Ultimatum, adding cards like Electrolyze, Duress/Thoughtseize, and Dismember.

Check out my deck for more card ideas in our colors and leave a comment or vote, if you would. I think if you focus your strategy a bit more you could have an awesome deck!

You have a flying weakness, perhaps some Vampire Nighthawk and/or Deadly Recluse

Psychonautical on Need good "BBB" cost permanents, ...

1 day ago

There's some issue with the search function. I sent feedback to the site and posted in the site help forums, but maybe I could just get suggestions from some folks who know of many more cards than I do until it gets resolved. Here's what I sent to

"Love the site! But I wanted to bring a fairly specific and odd bug or glitch in the card search.

While building a modern black devotion deck, I was looking for cards to fill a 3 CMC permanent slot that cost three black mana. Yet when I search using filters "BBB" as the cost, "creature" and/or "enchantment" as the type, and "Modern" as the format, it returns no results, when cards such as Geralf's Messenger and Dark Prophecy definitely exist that match those parameters.

If I change the cost to "BB" it returns all the creatures and/or enchantments that cost exactly 2 black mana such as Vampire Hexmage, and if I change it to "BBBB", it brings up Phyrexian Obliterator. So I am just wondering why that particular cost gets overlooked.


So that's it. Until this get taken card of, what are some tournament-worthy suggestions of three-black-mana-costing creatures or enchantments that would make a good addition to a modern black aggro/devotion deck?

(Think Phyrexian Obliterator, Vampire Nighthawk, Bloodghast, Vampire Hexmage, hand destruction, spot removal and Gray Merchant of Asphodel for an easy win on turn five or beyond after wearing them down.)

I'm looking for other general suggestions of good cards for such as well. I have many spots open and am considering two black mana costing cards instead of three, and am looking at Natuko Shade or Wicked Akuba to take advantage of mid-late game flood while keeping with devotion (where Pack Rat doesn't), cards like Kiku, Night's Flower for extra removal power, or possibly just another cheap aggressor such as Black Knight or Knight of Infamy. Thoughts on these options?

All help is much appreciated! Thanks!

Dead Weight over debilitating injury

Personally, i'd use Vigor Mortis over Dutiful Return and give Sluiceway scorpion and korozda gorgon the boot.

Also, since you're really leaning towards lifegain abilities, I suggest Vampire Nighthawk, Gnaw to the Bone, and Sanguine Bond

Gnat Miser doesn't really seem too amazing. If you can get out 6 of them by turn 3 on the play, then yeah not bad against midrange.

Hypnotic Specter doesn't start discarding until turn 4, and could be very easily stopped by Baleful Strix or Vampire Nighthawk. Seems like a less than optimal strategy.

Bolt, as it now describes in the description, actually wins faster than kindle. In a Bolt VS Kindle matchup, bolt could even win the the draw.

FancyTuesday on Will a Lifelink blocker keep ...

2 days ago

They assign damage, and order that assignment if there are multiple blockers for a single attacker, but the important thing is that it's all done simultaneously and they cannot choose to do damage to the player before doing damage to the creatures blocking.

In this case it would not save you, as has already been pointed out. But if you're at 1 life and have a Vampire Nighthawk and your opponent attacks with two Grizzly Bears you can block one and survive with 1 life. They cannot assign damage to you first unless they give the unblocked one first strike. All damage is done at once and all static effects relating to that damage are handled at the same time, before anyone would receive priority or the game would check state based effects. Price
