Yarok's Fenlurker Discussion

DanMcSharp on No Cards or Creatures for You

I don't think Thought Distortion belongs in this deck. It's meant to be used mostly as a sideboard card, possibly to be fetched with something like Fae of Wishes to really hit a hard on a control player that has a hand full of good stuff. In this deck, your opponent will be mostly empty-handed by the time you cast it. You will maybe make them discard 1 or 2 cards at best, if you're lucky.

Fetid Imp is pretty weak and taxes you 1 mana just to remain useful. If you really want a deathtouch creature, you could use Mire Triton instead, but if I was you I would use Yarok's Fenlurker instead, a typical 2 drop in any discard deck, and it would fuel your devotion better for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Kaervek, the Spiteful is an interesting addition, but since he's not always useful and is legendary, I would only run a single copy, maybe 2 if you really like him. Would kill a Yarok's Fenlurker if you decide to use some too.

Mire's Grasp and Dead Weight would work really well with Hateful Eidolon, could be an worthwhile addition. Btw, since you already run those as creature removal, you could swap some Grasp of Darkness for Eliminate so that you can also hit planeswalkers.

You should also run a few Castle Locthwain, no real reasons not to tbh.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful, cheers!

Nice combo spot with Gray, Ayara and Shepherd Titus7007! 14 damage to opponent, 14 life for you and a card draw at once :)

However, I think you did well putting in Murderous Rider instead. It should act more consistently.

My only concern now, if I may say, is Kaya's Ghostform here. I don't think you've got any key pieces that you need to secure, and some card draw or reocurring threat would be of use. As 3-CMC slot is already quite occupied (Liliana's Standard Bearer is tempting, though), maybe something for ? Yarok's Fenlurker with nice ETB & Devotion? Or Foulmire Knight for card draw & 1/1 Deathtouch body? Both you could recur with Lurrus of the Dream-Den and Call of the Death-Dweller if need be...

I think you are dipping into too many styles of play with your deck selection. If you streamline into a certain style of build I think you will have some more success. Looking at the choices of cards you've picked, I think a Mono-Black aggressive style Vito deck would suit what you are looking for.

Early turns you can play creatures such as; Vampire of the Dire Moon (4), Serrated Scorpion (4), Priest of Forgotten Gods (4), Yarok's Fenlurker (4)

Your mid-game would be; Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose (3), Ayara, First of Locthwain (3), Dread Presence (4)

And finishers in the form of; Nightmare Shepherd (4), Gray Merchant of Asphodel (3)

Pack some removal in the form of; Murderous Rider (3), Eliminate (3)

and then 21 Swamp and there's your deck! (Castle Locthwain if you've got em)

austintayshus i have Tavern Swindler in the deck to use with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose for that gain 6 and deal 6. the Sanctum of Stone Fangs is there for Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose gaining 1 and dealing 2 each turn, its also a guaranteed +1/+1 counter to Bloodthirsty Aerialist. Yarok's Fenlurker is for uhhh, idk i like hand hate, it also has good cheap devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. im definitely taking your suggestions and will fix the deck i was just telling you the reasons for my choices, thanks for the help. vito is a champ

I like this deck but I think you should probably stick to the lifegain side of this deck. I would cut the shrines and Yarok's Fenlurker. You can only make your opponent discard so many cards before they run out of cards. I would also cut Tavern Swindler because it is an unreliable source of lifegain.

Here are a few cards to consider adding:

Ayara, First of Locthwain: draws cards and has a life drain trigger that your deck can definitely abuse.

Vampire of the Dire Moon: Great efficient one drop.

Midnight Reaper: Decent card draw.

And of course, there's always Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven.

Hope this helps!

I like the deck, but maybe you could substitute Dirge Bat for something like Yarok's Fenlurker. It might help you curve a little better and keep tempo. Also, mutating the bat seems too expensive.

I know this looks like a budget deck, but maybe a few Castle Locthwain would help with late game card draw. Also, Fabled Passage has the potential for basic lands to come in untapped, while Evolving Wilds never will. Furthermore, maybe a Witch's Cottage as a one-of, to return a creature in a pinch.

Sorry for the double post, but two other cards that I think are a great with Shirei are Thoughtpicker Witch and Yarok's Fenlurker.

Love the idea and love Lurrus! Here are a few cards I think might fit in:

Yarok's Fenlurker is another Burglar Rat that might be better than Pilfering Imp, since Imp can only rip a card every other turn.

Dreadhorde Invasion I think will be really good here, to give you a never-ending stream of sac fodder or as a win-con once you have them topdecking. It's like a worse Bitterblossom! Perhaps over the Vicious Rumors?

You can also consider Piper of the Swarm if you end up needing a mana sink.

I strongly suggest at least 20 lands, especially in a two-color deck, even with a curve this low. Mono-red typically runs 20 at fewest and also ends around 3 CMC and has the advantage of being one color. I would cut Specter's Shriek and maybe a Bankrupt in Blood to add +2 Blood Crypt and +1 Swamp. Given that you run so many 1 & 2 drops, you might also want to swap the Triomes for more basics or Fabled Passage if budget allows!
