How Misfortunate

Description

I saw the new card Curse of Misfortunes and Curse of Thirst and thought they would be a great combo and want to build around it.

I really like this deck, especially for the price. It has good synergy, and it looks like you have enough to take out an opponent. My only suggestion would be to consider adding a couple Curse of Stalked PreyMTG Card: Curse of Stalked Prey just to speed things up. It might also help your mana curve, which looks a little steep at this point. Other than that, I'd say this is excellent for the dollars invested.

am trying to keep it on the cheap, and curse of stalked prey]] doesnt fit the deck. yes it adds a curse, but doesnt do anything AS a curse, except be another possible curse, the 6th type of curse on the list to look for should you get a misfortunes on. Im thinking about changing out the manor gargoyles for GravecrawlerMTG Card: Gravecrawler and get rid of the druidic satchels too so that 4 gravecrawlers would be cheap and defensive. problem is, it is an expensive card, and 4 of them would be >1.5 times the price of the rest of the cards total.... we shall see. I put em in the sideboard though. theme is to keep it cheap though, and the dream would be to have all 4 Birds of ParadiseMTG Card: Birds of Paradise and Solemn SimulacrumMTG Card: Solemn Simulacrum in the deck. then the curses would RAIN down on turn even a possible turn 3..... if pulled

  1. forest put out birds
  2. swamp put out warden of wall
  3. swamp put out curse misfortunes
  4. put a curse of thirst on opponent, then cast whatever curse is in hand, hopefully another curse of thirst. 6 direct damage
  5. put a curse of bloodletting on opponent, then whatever you drew. 16 damage.

that is my theoretical god hand.

now that im thinking about it, Birds of ParadiseMTG Card: Birds of Paradise and Llanowar ElvesMTG Card: Llanowar Elves would speed this deck up considerably if i removed all the shimmering grotto and did 10 forest/10swamp. something to think on... Ill play with that idea.

i was having some problems getting the Curse of MisfortunesMTG Card: Curse of Misfortunes out, and seeing as the deck wins or loses depending on how fast i can get this card out, I added 4 Diabolic TutorMTG Card: Diabolic Tutor to replace Doom BladeMTG Card: Doom Blade the doom blade is nice for control and will be kept sideboarded against a speed build deck such as goblins. getting misfortunes out is very important so im looking for other ways to get it out too....
