Description

This deck is based around the combo of Anointer Priest + Nest of Scarabs + Soul-Scar Mage . Burn their creatures, gain life, get army. Anointed Procession acts as additional Nest of Scarabs and also doubles the embalm on Anointer Priest.

Lots of fun burn to help keep the field clear so that your tokens can get in and do their thing.

This is Hilarious. I built this real quick since I already owned all the cards in the mainboard and tested it against my friend..and well.. suffice it to say he was astounded by the fact that this is a thing that works. +1

@squiddlyradd I haven't had a chance to play against anyone yet. So I'm curious how it felt from a mana standpoint (was there enough land and did the colors line up) and if the burn suite felt good. Any suggestions?

@mardu_charizard Sweltering Suns is in the sideboard. The only problem with main boarding it is that it destroys all of the insects we have generated as well as potentially destroying Soul-Scar Mage.

@dankmim I just really like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. The original design i was going to run was a zombie/insect token hybrid that would feature Wayward Servant as well as Anointer Priest. Kalitas doesn't really fit the theme all that well but he can get pretty big and can also generate substantial amounts of 2/2 creatures.

I would cut Deem Worthy for something like Cut / Ribbons, also 4 Lightning Axe is a bit much, I would drop it to 2. Also I would cut the Heart-Piercer Manticore for something else, maybe for Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion.

Stun Sniper would work if you don't care about the set. Oh, and Merciless Javelineer works well too, especially if you have Fiery Temper to discard to it.

@mack10k yeah I thought long and hard about Tormenting Voice it works wonders with temper and allows me to refuel my hand. I am going to definitely have to try different configurations of burn/draw to get it just right for sure.

@matchgrizzle I hadn't considered Merciless Javelineer and now that I'm looking at it more it could very well provide some stability between explosive turns for sure.

The deck doesn't seem to have any answers to marvel

@Khansolo the interaction of sweltering suns+nest of scarabs+soul scar mage is far more profitable than you think. Yes, you lose mage, but you get 3 scarabs for each 1 destroyed, as well as 3 for each other creature on the board since soul scar mage sees all the damage happening before it dies. The post-suns board state can just overwhelm opponents without sweepers because of the sheer amount of creatures generated when suns is used in cohesion with nest.

Also, have you considered Nahiri's Wrath? Gets rid of excess kalitases and such, while generating lots of scarabs

@Heleg88 what would you take out for Zulaport Cutthroat?

@Mardu_Charizard Nahiri's Wrath could do some serious damage and generate a ton of scarabs. Only concern with it is the lack of card draw currently in the deck. I'm gonna definitely test it out though.

May 20, 2017 8:51 p.m.

maybe kalitas in the side for painful truths in the main? I havent tested it though, and kalitas may have a place in the deck. One thing i do know though is that kalitas and anointed procession have a bizarre and complicated interaction that can be found on reddit> look up The weird interaction between Kalitas and Anointed Procession. Its gross
