Whip of Erebos Discussion

ShaharRyu on Burn Witch Burn

Ashnod's Altar is an obvious upgrade for its great potential in synergies and also infinite combos like with Nim Deathmantle. I am waiting for a reprint for it to go back to 3$ as it was a year ago. I discarded the summoner cause it was too mana hunru, but with the altar it could certainly be VERY funny.

On the recurssion departmente I was certainly thinking about those 2 creatures. Whisper, Blood Liturgist has never proven its worth to me before but Hell's Caretaker was an option I was considering. The main reason I am not runnin the caretaker or Stalking Vengeance is because they didn't seem to go well with my board when I proxied them. Stalking vengeance was a 7cc 5/5 sitting on the board doing 1 o 2 damage at times.

Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are upgrades for the future for sure. They are amazing cards which I would love to run. So is the Whip of Erebos. Finally, Grenzo. That sure is a Chaotic Card and I like it. It doesnt have much synergies unless Shadows of the Past and Viscera Seer do there job, in which case it could be amazing. It ain't expensive either so certainly a fun adition to run.

All in all, thanks a lot for the suggestions. I will try adding the caretaker and when I eventually manage to get my hand on the altar, I will also add the Summoner since that combo had gone completely under y nose and it is fo damn funny.

I can respect somebody who is actively trying to play the worst Commander in the game and actually making it work.

Here are a few cards I think you could consider Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Phyrexian Crusader, Whip of Erebos, and Beseech the Queen.

I actually play this pair. They work well together. Here is a few cards that have served me well and I think they will do the same for you Twilight Prophet, Connive / Concoct, Shriekmaw, Mulldrifter, Deep-Sea Kraken, Bloodsworn Steward, Whip of Erebos, Breaking / Entering, Rise / Fall, Torrential Gearhulk, Stunt Double, Ancient Stone Idol, and Price of Fame.

Oh and important ruling you should know about Split cards. While they're on the stack, only the half you're casting is counted for CMC. However, when they're anywhere else and you need to figure out what the CMC is, you go by the total between both halves.

This matters for cards like Twilight Prophet and Combustible Gearhulk which I also suggest you run.

TypicalTimmy on Why do people think Griselbrand ...

I'd also like to point out that drawing 7 cards with him in a mill deck where you run things such as Sphinx's Tutelage is absolutely devastating.

Most Modern decks run 2 - 3 colors. Rare exceptions are things such as Elves and Burn which are mono-colors and 5C Humans. There are nearly no 4C Modern decks because the balancing is not worth the deck potential, though they can be made with enough effort. The real problem here isn't that 4C isn't powerful, it's that the manafixing is absurd. 5C Humans, I've seen go for literally $1,300 - well out of the budget for I'd say 90% of MTG players. My most expensive Modern deck is $340 and I bought damaged cards and foreign cards to help reduce the cost - and that thing took me two weeks of overtime to save up for with enough cushion set aside to ensure bills can still be paid on time.

As a quick example, I'm going to grab a Modern deck I have and do a casual playthrough on what would happen with just a Sphinx's Tutelage and Griselbrand.

Alright, let's give you the benefit of the doubt and say I am running my Rakdos Minotaur deck. This thing packs a serious punch and is all about dropping Instant-speed kill spells while building up a Minotaur Tribal wall of death before I swing in for 160+ damage with just 4 - 5 creatures.

I'm going to draw my hand, and skip on over to T4. This gives you time to get a Sphinx's Tutelage out without ramp, somehow have landed Griselbrand in your graveyard, and cast yourself a Goryo's Vengeance to bring him out on your 4th turn.

So I draw 7 cards, I'll go first, and draw three more as my turns come and go. This leaves 50 cards left in my library.

Let's see what happens when you draw 7 with Sphinx's Tutelage on the field.

Okay, so that wasn't so bad on my end. So suppose you pay 7 more life, draw 7 more cards, and put me through this 7 more times.

So you milled me for a total of 32 cards. You would have paid 14 life, but remember you could swing for 7 damage since he has Haste via Goryo's Vengeance and pay it AGAIN, so let's make me go through this one last time and see where I'm left off at. Remember, I had 10 cards accounted for between my opening hand and my three draw steps. So I only have 18 cards left in my library. So you pay 7 more life and we go through this whole sha-bang one more time.

You pass the turn and I lose.

T4 Mill. Set up right, you can do it T3.

Here are some cards you could consider for this deck Training Grounds, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Thopter Spy Network, Hangarback Walker, and Whip of Erebos.

CaptSillva on A Fun DEMONstration

A few cards you could consider Shadowborn Apostle or rather a lot of Apostles. If you do end up running them you could also consider Thrumming Stone.

Other just generically good cards are as follows Skirsdag High Priest, Whip of Erebos, Crypt Ghast, Herald of Torment, Archdemon of Paliano, Doom Whisperer, Shadowborn Demon, and Demonlord Belzenlok.
