I've been tinkering with different Jund setups lately. The theme of this deck is to constantly kill any threat that appears, using Lightning Prowess on a deathtoucher to ping creatures to death, use Olivia Voldaren to ping and steal creatures and then try to get some damage in from time to time.
It really is just a jumble of bits and pieces that fit the theme, i would like to be able to use mutilate but i think it'll hurt me just as much as the enemy now that Lashwrithe is gone.
2x Naturalize: There isnt any artifact/enchantment removal mainboard, so this just goes here.
3x Slaughter Games: When control decks are just too annoying, we remove either their control or their biggest kill.
1x Golgari Charm: Useful vs weenies or someone with field wipes.
For 2 mana i can deal 4 damage to a creature. In order to deal 4 damage to each creature bonfire needs 5 mana and mortars need 6, so its about even, except you can wait for the opportune moment to cast mortars.
hey i like this idea but as a friendly note are you aware that you have 62 cards in this deck?
Just a quick note: don't forget that Lightning Prowess gives haste, so you can, with five mana, surprise drop an assassin and a prowess to kill something immediately.
This deck has an interesting theme. Looks fun to play. +1 =)
I like the idea...i had the same some time ago...+1 for me
check my deck e give suggestions please!
a i missed the fact that it made the creature deal damage 1 damage. my bad. sweet combo then. feel like there should be more DT or lifelink than? maybe Deadly Recluse ? help with flying and save a few cents on the switch. just tossing up an idea for ya.
Yeh i have thought of Deadly Recluse , but i dont want to overload on the combo, just have it in there to maybe go off as it is very fragile, but at the same time it creates a threat out of nothing that may soak a kill spell, and if it does then i get to keep my fatties most likely
Since Lightning Prowess does create such a good combo with Deathtouch creatures, I would recommend having it as a 4 of, along with at least 12(ish?) Deathtouch creatures.
@Jarrheadd0: he also has Ulvenwald Tracker s, which combos almost as well with deathtouch creatures as Lightning Prowess , but also combos well with the number of fatties he's running as his main offense.
I think he's going for a little more variety in how he removes stuff, making it much harder for his opponent to sideboard for game two.
Exactly what snotskie said, plus i dont like relying on a specific combo too much, it makes the deck extremely fragile, but just having that combo as a possibility might work out really well
Well, couldn't you just use 4 of both? The more possible pieces to a combo, the better.
Perhaps i can put a couple in the sideboard if the combo works too well, but i think if i focus too much on getting the combo to be reliable i will loose my other forms of control / survival, sort of like too much of a good thing
That is exactly right Toxonic and the more options you can have in a deck the better it becomes, also the more overwhelmed your opponents will become. I like the deck and it seems to be a great deck. Havve you considered running Rakdos's Return I like it slighty better than Bonfire Of the Damned I can Always board wipe or clear a field but emptiyng your opponents hand can be highly devastating, Also Shreiking affliction is a great combo piece with Rakdos's Return Make your opponent suffer for playing with no hand as well as force them to keep cards in there hand it causes a mental lock do I do this or that. either way +1 from me I love the Deck. Check out my Rakdos, Riders Of Hell, I assure you, you won't be disapointed.
yo, use blood artist. that shit will fuck peoples day up. trust me :)
Nightshade peddler with thundermaw hellkite's etb ability will devastate opponents using fliers.
@OFABass I was considering Blood Artist , but im unsure how effective he would be overall. I know he would hurt my opponent a lot but so do most of my other creatures, except that they also provide removal/control.
@gheridarigaaz I know giving Thundermaw Hellkite deathtouch would destroy a fliers deck, but if i was up against a zombie deck then the peddler would be completely useless. Maybe i can give him a spot in the sideboard, because he teams up nicely with Olivia Voldaren and Lightning Prowess also.
maybe -2 Desecration Demon +2 Rakdos, Lord of Riots... Desecration Demon , Olivia Voldaren and Thundermaw Hellkite all would be out much faster with him . you would then be able to play more than one fatty on your next turn and for an opponent with only 1 removal spell in hand that can win you the game. i like this deck a lot though.+1
