Curse of the Undying

Standard Mono-Green

Drathmar Score: 16


Description

Just an idea I threw together for fun that has worked very well vs people I play with on cockatrice online. Basic idea is that this deck works as an aggro deck where they have to kill most creatures twice (undying) or with creatures that are hard to get rid of (wolfir avenger and pred ooze). Pred ooze is basically the I win card in the deck. If you can get a Predator ooze with a mask of avacyn on it, the only way to get rid of it is board wipe cards that I can think of at least. Rangers guile is there for the same reason, to keep it out until you can get a mask on it or they run out of - to toughness cards to kill it. I have killed so many people with this combo as they might be able to take the plinks for a couple turns but once it gets big enough the have to take a lot of damage, or block it and make it even bigger. Rancor is to make this even harder by giving it trample. Wolfir Avenger is there because it is actually easy to get out with Druid's and it can buff the undying creatures without putting counters on them and nullifying undying.

Anyway, this is still in the rough stages so any suggestions are welcome and please vote if you like the deck!

Edit: Changed out the Druids' Repository s for 4 Arbor Elf for play testing.

Have you considered incorporating any Prey Upon so you can control their creatures more?

@Sinful, I was thinking of more board bounces since hexproof won't protect against that, like devastation tide. Wouldn't kill it though just reset it so isn't all that bad.

@BDB: Actually, I derped and forgot about, that is definitely one to think on.

Dungrove Elder ... also I think card:Druids' Repository is a waste. Try Garruk, Primal Hunter for card draw. or card:Hunter's Insight or Lead the Stampede . Also think about Lure and Ambush Viper for more control. Nice deck though, +1 from me. Comment on my deck:gb-deathtouch-control if you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate it!

Since it is still legal, I'll give you the best advice I can for this deck.

Batterskull !!!! It is SO good, there is really no good reason not to play it. Also, I figured I should mention, just because something is hexproof, doesn't mean that it won't be O-ring'd. Not to mention it has just been printed for the 13th time in M13 means its the perfect way to devastate the three mana you spent on Predator Ooze and the other 5 mana to cast and equip the Mask of Avacyn .

I happen to agree with mserron becuase card:Druids' Repository doesn't quite fit in this instance. Give then opportunity, are you going to cast that, or cast Predator Ooze ? I'm thinking you would rather the latter. It is best used in instances where you need more than one color to cast spells, where in mono green, there should be no problem. I would keep it in however if you were to add Batterskull simply because you can turn a freshly cast Predator Ooze into a Vorapede .

Batterskull is good, but I am moving away from adding in cards that will rotate out in 2 months.

However, how is Oblivion Ring going to effect a predator ooze if it has mask already on it? I just looked it up, and oblivion ring cannot effect something with hexproof since it targets it.

Druids' is there to help cast the silverhearts and vorapede much faster. I could replace it though and see how it works.

I would suggest dropping the 4x card:Druids' Repository for 4x any mana dork, Birds of Paradise and Llanowar Elves being the best choices. But if you'd like to keep it post-rotation, Arbor Elf will do the trick. Mana acceleration is always good in a green deck, and it gives you something to do on turn 1 if you don't draw a Young Wolf .

I know Dungrove Elder doesn't really stick with your theme but, its really good in mono green, and I'd seriously recommend it. Also i don't think young wolf is very good, just because its very underwhelming, a 1/1 for one may as well be a mana dork. Also card:Green Sun's Zenith is fantastic. I do understand that you're trying to make more of post rotation deck, but these cards are very very good.

Needs a little more land. 4x Mask of Avacyn is excessive, no? How about 2 and 20 forests?

Only way I could see an O-ring getting to something with a mask would be to O-ring the mask and then O-ring the creature. But, honestly, who's gonna do something like that unless they are desperate? And if they are desperate enough to do that, you are probably in good shape anyway.

+1

Something to consider might be card:Yeva, Nature's Herald . Being able to drop a Vorapede or a Wolfir Silverheart at end of turn, then Rancor it and swing sounds devastating

switch out rangers guile and put in Sheltering Word

i know the whole 2 months thing... but just think about Hex Parasite and all that undying you'll be doing. Plus you already have the mask, so once equipped, you would have an untouchable way to "reanimate" your creatures.. idk just a thought

card:Yeva, Nature's Herald is a sick turn 4 drop for you, since you currently have 0. Definitely agree with trayhern there. I would drop 1 titanic growth and 1 ranger's guile to put 2 yevas in.
