Nugget_Decks on Make them wither

20 hours ago

Thank you for your comment MeagherMan101! I think i'll swap Banewhip Punisher for Skinrender. I don't like the idea of Blowfly Infestation in this deck, because it can make infity combo w/ Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Obelisk Spider, but still going to take Everlasting Torment out of the deck,and maybe put it on the side board? dunno yet... Loved the idea of Viridian Longbow!! It combos really good w/ the deck.

Ooh cool deck, never thought about having wither creatures fight opponents to make them weaker but it sounds awesome!

Definitely would recommend Skinrender for it's synergy with Necroskitter. Plus it looks like an Alien from AvP which is just a bonus.

Blowfly Infestation is a cool enchantment that, in my opinion, should replace Everlasting Torment. It seems a little bit pointless since almost all your creatures have wither anyways. I get the synergy with Heart-Piercer Bow but I think a Viridian Longbow would be better (or even a Pathway Arrows) because you can equip it to creatures you don't want to attack like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to ping their face and get a counter on a creature or put it on a wither creature when they have a big creature on the board you don't want to swing into.

With all the deathtouch crits think about running a copy of Viridian Longbow. It gets super Douchey =]

I was running a totally top-heavy, janky casual kill-n-steal deck against my friend's Slivers. I don't know how it happened, but I hit this perfect rhythm where no matter what happened, I killed it or stole it. Vampire Nighthawk holding Viridian Longbow, enchanting everything with Fool's Demise, a couple of Mind Controls, ending in a swarm of Slivers against their owner's empty board. That strategy has long been one of my casual favorites, and it was running so pure, with a pile of jankwad glory.

Might as well keep it going, and look for more stories.

Adding equipment that lets your creatures do damage will allow your deathtouching snake tokens to tap to destroy your opponents creatures.

Cards like Viridian Longbow, Wolfhunter's Quiver and Thornbite Staff (Pathway Arrows and Hankyu work too, but aren't as good).

I would also suggest Grim Affliction, Fevered Convulsions, Skullclamp, Cinderhaze Wretch, Necroskitter, Wickerbough Elder, and Seshiro the Anointed.

Travkier Thank you for the suggestions! Both Gorgon's Head and Basilisk Collar are good cards for this. Targeted removal is definitely something I think the deck can use. Viridian Longbow is also a acceptable card here. Thank you for the suggestions and the compliment!

carpecanum I thought about using Keranos! But ended up going with the partner commanders since I do not have a partner deck. And I thought maybe the planeswalker commanders could be interesting. If I end up not liking it, I will just get a different commander. Probably Keranos. All of the suggestions you gave are definitely going in the deck. I really like Charisma, Meishin, and Sigil of sleep. Excellent suggestions!

HydraOoze: Phage the Untouchable needs to deal combat damage to the player for them to lose. Viridian Longbow doesn't deal combat damage.

TypicalTimmy: There are tons of ways to perform such combos though, many dating further back than the likes of Nighthawk and even Thornbite. Viridian Longbow completely outclasses Wolfhunter's Quiver, for one. Deathbringer Thoctar + anything that gives it deathtouch can do the same without even having to tap, though it is 6cmc and 2 colors. Additionally, Thornbite Staff can be used for much more... degenerate combos than that. Anything that taps to make a token + Thornbite Staff + Any Sac Engine makes for infinite of whatever the sac engine nets you. Bonus points to Kazandu Tuskcaller for being a Shaman.

Regardless, the whole subject seems a bit of a far cry from the topic of "Ranged Strike", as pingers are a whole different animal tbh. You wouldn't use Crossbow Infantry in a combo like this.
