Chaos, Anarchy, and Discord

Hero Combo Four Color



Here is the link http://tappedout.net/mtg-forum/general/hero-format-decks/#c423007

Named for what this deck causes as it plays.

Trying to push the limits of the new Hero format. 1 color is easy. 2 colors? Sure. 3? Meh. 4 colors is just right.

Ink-Treader Nephilim is the center of this deck. It's chaotic, unreliable, and difficult to work with. Meaning it's all about the pilot, not the deck.

It has a lot of crazy interactions going on, most including that insane aresnal of Instants and Ink-Treader Nephilim . This deck can even run without Treader on the field.

With, its a Crazy Combo/Hug/Flicker

Without, its a Combo/Flicker/Aggro.

Both are fairly cool ways to play. If you think I missed something, I left the maybe board up with a few things that would be pretty cool in this deck. A few of them would be to include Realm Razer , landfall, and an Amulet of Vigor. It might be something I build in a different deck later.

Questions, Comments, or Stuff to add. Lemme know. +1's help too.

This deck is really crazy fun. Even in the playtester. I warn you, that you really got to focus on the stack. Otherwise you lose track and that table flips.

First, a disclaimer. I have no knowledge of the Hero format, but you can use my comments insofar as they relate. I am basing this off of EDH.

First, I want to congratulate you on what looks like is an effective deck with or without your Ink-Treader Nephilim , which is quite a feat considering how pivotal he can be. I like the flickering aspect.

My main point of advise is to pay attention to what will be a legal target for your spells when they bounce off of Ink-Treader. For instance, Cloudshift and Ghostly Flicker will only target your creatures if cast on Ink-Treader, whereas Otherworldly Journey targets the entire targetable board, along with other options such as Turn to Mist or even the old standard of Flicker . I would actually recommend the board-targeting examples, because they are effective at dealing with tokens, if your opponent has any.

My last suggestion is to throw in another cheap spell that cantrips, such as Leap , to draw some extra cards off of Ink-Treader, or even to take the edge off of your opponent's flyers.

The point with the flicker effect with Cloudshift and Ghostly Flicker was to focus specificaly on my own stuff. I don't them to benefit from my stuff. Magma Spray and Otherworldly Journey are designed for token removal. No graveyard bonuses and the simply don't come back.

I was thinking Leap or Jump or something like that for flying. Cantrips are alright but I don't want to draw myself out too much.
