GB Deathtouch Shenanigans

Standard BG (Golgari) Competitive

FuryOfTheAge


Description

G/B Deathtouch keyword deck. Curious to see how this will match up against G/B Counters, they'll have to make a lot of bad trades. Has a bit of life gain between Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Gifted Aetherborn, and Aethersphere Harvester.

Try playtesting this deck. It runs pretty damn well and seems horribly annoying to play against. Dropping a late game Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for her -2 or a Verdurous Gearhulk can turn your group of small deathtouchers into something quite nasty.

Awesome card draw power with Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, The Gitrog Monster, and Ob Nixilis Reignited. Gonti, Lord of Luxury can also steal some game winning cards or shut down combo pieces your opponent had coming to them. Either way, he's a 2-for-1 card and another deathtoucher.

Why not use Clear Shot in this deck. You have Green removal spells then and don't need the Grasp of Darkness

I don't know how I missed that, thank you!

Rather than Ob Nixilis Reignited, maybe Nissa, Voice of Zendikar because you can add counters to creatures and generate some 0/1 tokens for blocking dummies? I like Ob, and I get that this isn't a Winding Constrictor deck, so the suggestion is just in case you feel that having some extra blockers and maybe a way to pump creatures could be useful? Maybe for the sideboard?

I have a deck built around this idea-- maybe it can give you some ideas? Probably not, but might be worth a look anyway? B/G Fun with deathtouch

Cool deck! +1 from me!

I chose Ob Nixilis Reignited because he's a guaranteed kill when I play him and good card draw if I don't need that ability. After looking at your deck though, I think I'm going to shift away from all the +1/+1 counters and work in better removal and card advantage. Standard seems to be in a big tempo groove right now so I think good card advantage combats that, which deathtouch seems to do very well when properly supported. Thanks for the advice.

Have you tried Pathway Arrows in this deck to replace one of the creature fight cards? It basically gives you a free removal spell every turn. I play a deck similar to this and I think it is hilarious

I plan to add one, preferably two. I may drop an Aether Poisoner to fit in one Pathway Arrows, not sure for the other. The Aether Poisoner's energy goes a long way to supply the card draw from Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, so I don't want to totally drop her. Thanks for the suggestion.

I would increase the pathways up to 3 if not full playset just cause its sweet removal and if its is not countered on enter the only thing they could do about it is dissallow.
