Roaches (Undying BUG)

Verinaut

Score: 1


Description

Update

Tweaked towards more of a midrange deck as per suggestions in the comments.


Need help with some fine tuning, but this deck has been a lot of fun.

Between Zameck Guildmage and Thrull Parasite the undying creatures never die and you might get card draw out of it.

It's also fun to Rapid Hybridization your own undying guy to get a +1/+1 counter and a 3/3 for U.

Maybe put an evolve creature in there? They synergise well with undying. Cloudfin Raptor might be good.

Cloudfin Raptor would be a sweet first turn drop, but I'm worried about it's utility in the late game. What would I swap out for it?

Rapid Hybridization works well with undying if you target your own creature (with undying), just something to consider.

Even with the amazing mana that the shocklands give, I feel that getting GG for strangle root geist on turn 2, UU or BBB for stormbound geist and geralf's messenger on turn three is a bit magical christmas land-y. I would probably try to drop the messengers because they are the hardest on your mana base. Stormbound geist also gets wrecked by restoration angel and every other flier that sees play. I would try to drop that as well. A few Vorapede's as late game finishers, depending on how slow the format is? Rancor would also be quite fantastic in this style of deck. Fathom mage is also a card drawing engine in this style of deck, especially if you intend on abusing counters. It is quite slow and very fragile in the beginning, but it could provide a great deal of card advantage if you can protect it. I also worry that this deck will be very easy to go over, as your largest cards aren't very large, and your small creatures are awfully expensive for an aggro deck. Something to help fight against annoying fatties like thragtusk or angel of serenity, depending on what removal is in Gatecrash? Ultimate price might be worth looking into. Also, terminus sucks. Dimir charm helps, but do you think it will be enough? I almost feel like moving away from aggro into midrange control would help a lot, riding on a few good creatures that just won't stay dead and protecting them with the various bangs and whistles you need. So removal, counterspells and the better undying cards.

Have you thought about Ulvenwald Tracker ? There's a b/g deck going around nowadays where it pairs up with Predator Ooze and undying creatures and you just fight fight fight, might work well here considering you can take the undying counters off for repeated removal?

Dat_Control: That's why it's in there :)

RayConner: I think we're on the same page here. So I would drop the geists, maybe keep card:Geralf's Messenger, add counterspells, Ultimate Price and Vorapede ? Maybe Garruk Relentless and a couple Thragtusk , Wolfir Silverheart , and Champion of Lambholt ?

homesuck: I like it! Kind of a different deck than what I'm thinking though. Leaning towards something more midrange

Seems pretty solid. As long as you can find a solution for terminus I think you'll be good to go with that setup
