mtg, mtg cards, magic the gathering, gaming, geeks
BRIEF HISTORY:Necropotence was such a dominant card back in the day, with every black deck running 3-4 because of its sheer power to draw a ton of cards.
sometime after the so called "Black summer" Necropotence was banned, and later on restricted. now I felt like making a deck which utilizes it awsomely..
Paying life didnt seem like the easiest thing anymore since the powercreep of mtg so I decided to add in some lifegain into the deck in the form of "soul sisters"
My midgame improved a ton, having a steady source of life let me draw 3-5 cards every turn. But I still wasnt taking too much advantage of Necropotence so I decided I needed more life.
To support both martyr of the sands AND both sisters I added in ways to get creatures to my hand in forms of these 2.
is such a nice card, I see you're hand and I take something out (temporarily)
once put down, it grows to something like a 5/5 pretty quick with any of the sisters around so yeah.
Now with such high amounts of life I can easily draw a ton of cards with Necropotence . Now the qustion is, what now?
the answer is simple.... keep the best cards you draw, or crack a Martyr of Sands for some huge lifegain or swipe the field with my new favorite card:
Yes, isnt it beautiful? it can kill and sweep everything I want.
oh and a whole lot of fetch lands for the right mana haha.
So quick runthough of the deck. play martyr and crack on turn 2 or keep it land a necro, draw crack gainlife and firestorm..all before discard phase
NOTE: the reason i only have 1 mox is because i actually have 1 (although its insanely uber damaged)
and thank you rckclimber777 for the challenge which got my deck featured =)
the thing with that is though, i dont have the life to pay with.. in our meta atleast (vintage) people dont netdeck so we tend to have alot of aggro around,the lifegain via martyr seems to be key to survival and beatings, addingtoo much black cards (8 rituals+8 cards to kill with) is kinda harsh..although i will try this idea and mix it in if i get a right amount
@Hades4836 i do get a 6/6 flying lifelinker, and a big ajani pride dude, but i dnt thinkthats enough. @ Ohthenoises, thanks for the list. ill study it tonight when i get home. but since that deck was before demonic cons and necro was restricted things have changed but yeah appreciated =)
@joeymontivu321 haha thanks for the compliment, ill try adding more eos and less scullers in my playtest version of the deck. ill check yours out too =)
thats what i love so much about this deck.. personally i find this my most skill intensive deck to pilot.. a single mistaken loss of life can cost you the game.. need to know when to crack martyr, when to tutor, what to play first. etc etc think ahead alot... and ofcourse when to drop or if to drop Necropotence at all..
I recommend changing them to 3x Dragonskull Summit , 3x Isolated Chapel and 3x Drowned Catacomb with 1x Swamp 1x Plains and 1x Mountain or2x Bloodstained Mire , 2x Marsh Flats and 2x Polluted Delta with 3x Plains , 1 Mountain , 2x Swamp .
Really, just make sure to get a few of the basic land to search for.
