Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Discussion

DarkHero on They hunt at night

1 day ago

Best chance you have with werewolves is to try to hinder your opponents from casting spells, as expecting someone to go a turn without casting anything is a long shot. 3 color gives you things like Silence, but your best bet might be trying to create a one sided stax though something like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Quicksmith Rebel, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Mana Web

Just to limit mana and make it more likely that someone won't be able to cast a spell

Sanguinolency on A Level Playing Field: cEDH Kinnan

Got some more spicy card suggestions:

Long-Term Plans to ensure you hit the creature you want off of Kinnan's activation

Scroll Rack Would help put the cratures you draw back on top

Consecrated Sphinx for the value engine

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger because lets be real, the only creatures you'll be casting are dorks.

Palinchron for the same reason.

Phantasmal Image for infinite mana with Palinchron OR copying a dork seems pretty strong

Library of Leng for incidentals

TypicalTimmy on Brevet, Murder for Hire

2 weeks ago

Brevet, Murder for Hire was built in order to run synergy between Mathas, Fiend Seeker and the new Chevill, Bane of Monsters. There is also one other creature in MTG that uses bounty counters - Bounty Hunter.

Given the three of them, you have the ability to place counters during multiple points of your turn, with Bounty Hunter also allowing you to place counters during an opponent's turn - ideally during the last player's end step so you can untap and kill the creature off when it untaps.

I decided to go the route of seeking payment. Brevet is a 3/4 for 4 colors, mirroring Saskia the Unyielding. While she has two keyword abilities (Vigilance and haste), I felt Deathtouch was strong enough to stand on its own.

The reason the triggered ability is set to and not is because you need to understand and appreciate just how often creatures enter the battlefield. Being forced to retain 4 or 6 mana for 2 or 3 creatures is a huge drawback. Additionally, you have three turns to sit through before it comes back to you which means you are already on a very tight resource management watch. Given these, I felt was fair. More on this down below, but for now remember you are paying mana to put the counter on the creature. It still needs to die and your opponent can still deny you the reward. Those factors are what justifies it, in my mind, to be reduced to .

And yes, it has to die. Bounce, flicker, tuck, exile... they all leave you empty handed.

Now, let's get to the reward. You either get two treasure tokens or you get to draw one card when the creature with the bounty counter on it dies. Yes, this means he becomes self-sustaining: You pay and you get out of it. That's entirely the point, or you get card advantage.

So let's talk about how the opponent can opt to deny you that resource by paying 3 life. This mirrors Athreos, God of Passage as well as eluding toward Mogis, God of Slaughter. But why specifically is it set to 3?

Most players are perfectly okay paying 2 life over and over again. Look at fetch lands and shocks lands as evidence. What players are not often okay with is paying 3 life. By setting it at 3 life, you force your opponent to really think about and choose if they want to deny you your resource. If they do, it will cost them dearly.

Now, you will naturally want to ask why this is even a thing? Why are we allowing our opponent to deny us resources? After all, we have to jump through several hurdles just to get there! We need to:

  • Wait for a creature to enter the battlefield
  • Pay the
  • Wait for it to die
  • Possibly be denied, regardless

The reason we are allowing opponents to deny the resource is because by doing so, they help us win the game. That's why, hence the flavor text. Mana and card advantage is great and all, but the sooner they drop to 0 life the better. It's all about strategy. Ultimately, no decision on their part is good or easy. Everything sucks for them. You get upside no matter what. You get mana, you get a card or you get one step closer to winning the game.

This deck also has several ways it can be built:

Brevet, Murder for Hire

Overall, I am extremely pleased with and proud of this build. I'd definitely build this deck if I find a group that's okay with custom commanders. :)

Thanks for the recommendation Grind, and i initially considered cards like Nyxbloom Ancient and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, however i personally believe they're made redundant considering the numerous other possible avenues for mana generation like re-occurring Hooded Hydra and sacking the snakes to any of the altars, or Azusa, Lost but Seeking and any of the fetch lands digs out three lands per turn from the deck, and Kruphix Himself.

MTGconstructor on How to Get Kicked out of Your Playgroup

Kaioken88 If you want to add in more competitive cards Here is a list: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Yosei, the Morning Star, Acidic Slime, Liliana of the Veil, Reveillark, Survival of the Fittest, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Titan, Tooth and Nail, Savannah, Scrubland, and Bayou. But in all honesty, its how you play the deck and if you want to combo off or not that will determine if you are competitive or not

GorehoundABB on Kinnan Simic Mana Fun

You definitely need more big mana sinks to abuse the infinite mana. You have some cards like that like Helix Pinnacle and Walking Ballista but you could stand to abuse cards like Staff of Domination and Thrasios, Triton Hero to draw your deck at instant speed and win with Thassa's Oracle with countermagic backup at the ready. Cards that have a similar "I Win" the game effect as a result of having no Library : Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are cards to consider.

If thats the route you want to take Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo can go infinite with colorless mana unless you have a colored mana rock or mana dork at the ready. It also helps win at instant speed or at worse cast a number of big spells in a turn.

Another infinite combo to consider would be Grim Monolith + Power Artifact. But since this isnt an artifact based deck Power Artifact would be a dead draw. A more fitting card to combo with would be Nyxbloom Ancient. It can go infinite with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith.

These combos are cool and all but unless you have a big X spell like Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius to have players draw their deck, you will need your fair share of tutors. The list currently has alot of the major ones but one I would include would be Natural Order in the place of Tooth and Nail . If you are going to run some amount of expensive green fatties like for example, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger its better to cheat it out of the deck than expend more resources over the course of turns to cast them naturally.

Aside from counters, I am not seeing much in the way of disruption in your creature base. Cards like the aforementioned Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or similar creatures with back breaking effects could see some consideration in the top end of the deck.

I would also recommend some more recursion spells. Cards like Gaea's Blessing and Memory's Journey can bring back combo pieces you otherwise lost into the deck. Eternal Witness is the all-star of the category but Regrowth like effects should have some slots in the deck if you plan to go all in on combo.

Some cards I feel could be cut from the deck could be Birthing Pod and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. Pod cares alot about the CMC of your deck and as it stands its very lopsided. As for Uro, I feel he will be under utilized in this list. As a 6/6 for 3 with those abilities it is amazing, however, exiling cards and potential combo pieces wouldn't be in your best interest if you plan to win with noncombat shenanigans . Uro would just be a 3 mana explore with upside and that might not be enough for what you are trying to do here.

I am probably missing some cards that are not coming to mind at the moment. I'll comment again with other cards once they come to mind.

Cool!

Hydras and x-spells have always been an interest of mine, but I never truly found the correct commander - trying decks such as Kenrith, the Returned King and Rosheen Meanderer. Many of these cards can be seen as just "fun" cards, but, as with everyone, take with a grain of salt!

I prefer Pull from Tomorrow over Mind Spring because you are often casting it for enough where the discard is worth it for instant speed.

Kruphix, God of Horizons or Doubling Cube might be worth it. Also, mana doublers, such as Mana Reflection or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger might be worth the slot. Animist's Awakening is interesting and on the x-spell theme.

Mind Grind for another win-con.

You could also include the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth / Cabal Coffers package along with cards like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even bigger mana. Then you could include fetches for these cards, such as Tempt with Discovery, Hour of Promise, and Expedition Map, although sort of slow.

Possibly, Rishkar's Expertise for big draws and a free play. Thrasios, Triton Hero for obvious reasons. Maybe even token doublers like Doubling Season

I don't really like Finale of Devastation or Green Sun's Zenith for Hydras, because whatever creature you get generally just dies when it enters the battlefield. The Talismans are cool, but pure, land-based ramp might be worth more in the long run, especially if you decide to add the cheaper mana doublers. The land base might be a bit overkill for a three color deck with access to green. In my experience, I can often get away with running more basics in sultai, but if it works, it works. Maybe Chromatic Lantern would help?

These are just my quick thoughts. Kind of sad that this commander doesn't have red. I haven't reviewed your recent edits, but I would like to hear more about what you are thinking.

Someone take another jab at Tamiyo. Let's see what she can do.

Tamiyo is chiefly interested in gathering information.

Tamiyo, Omniscient Savant

Legendary Planeswalker - Tamiyo

+2: Look at the top card of each library.

-1: Each opponent reveals their hand. You may tap up to X target creatures, where X is the total number of creatures revealed this way. Tap artifacts and lands the same way. Permanents tapped this way do not untap during their controller's untap step.

-20: Reorder your library.

5


Her abilities work to gather information and slow your opponents down. I wanted her -1 ability to be semi-stax oriented, such that it slowed your opponents, but not stopping them, so more like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger than Stasis.

See the above challenge
