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.

It's only as unreliable as your attention span during the game. If you are focused, no matter how the stack resolves, (Most of the time) You always come out on top as long as you keep targeting him.

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.
