Ever get tired of playing against decks that have indestructible creatures? Welcome to Wither, The Land of -1/-1 Counters.

This deck is built so that you can gain control of your opponents' creatures when they die because most sources of damage are wither.

This is the multiple enemy build for the deck. The single opponent version can be found here Wither Capture

Everlasting Torment and Necroskitter are the centerpieces. Worst case scenario, you swing and lose your creatures but significantly weaken theirs. Best case scenario, you gain some new friends or do a boat load of damage to your opponent. You also have a few burn spells to help you kill off and take control of their creatures.

Mogis, God of Slaughter will help out with keeping your opponent's board clear or lowering their life. He may gain some -1/-1 counters if he blocks so you'll want to use Fate Transfer to move them off of him and potentially kill one of their creatures.

I like Lightning Reaver in this build more than Demigod of Revenge but depending on what your group is putting in their decks they can be very interchangeable.

The sideboard is a work in progress. With my local meta there is a very popular Myr deck so I'll probably have a couple answers to artifacts.

I'd like to say "Thank you" to Darth_Savage for giving his suggestions. I think that they are great and have helped this deck out a bunch.

Some thoughts -

  1. Pharika's Chosen is ok, but in theme Oona's Gatewarden or Fume Spitter have more utility.

  2. Kaervek the Merciless, is just too slow for modern, you would be better with Stigma Lasher

  3. Lightning Reaver, is ok, but it needs more setup than Demigod of Revenge, not necessarily for more gain.

  4. Roast, sorcery speed removal isn't great and it doesn't help your game plan without Everlasting Torment, instead Puncture Bolt, Crumbling Ashes or Fate Transfer.

Otherwise I like the deck, it just needs to be a little more focussed.

I forgot, with wither Infiltration Lens is great, either they block and you get 2 card or they let the damage through...

Darth_Savage I really like your suggestions.

I think I'll go with Oona's Gatewarden, Demigod of Revenge, and Fate Transfer as potential replacements and Infiltration Lens looks like a great addition.

Thanks for the input!
