Think Morbid Thoughts

Modern B/G (Golgari) Tokens

BlckGaming Score: 9


Description

This deck is all about one thing. Demon tokens. What you really want to do is pull out as many as possible. This deck has gone from 0 to 4 tokens in one turn. Needless to say, my opponent scoops every time. One thing this does is sac one Demon to Disciple of Griselbrand and then making two more with Parallel Lives . This isn't just designed by me. It was worked on by the top players at my local card shop.

Nicely done deck but i was wondering why no Reassembling Skeleton =P

I actually though about that a LOT. I used to use a Reassembling Skeleton -based demon deck. In this deck, I can tap out almost every turn doing lots of combos and quite honestly, the skeleton seems to waste my mana. Plus I never seem to run out of creatures to sac so I don't need his ability all too much. Also take into consideration that most of my creatures sac themselves, giving me access to a forced morbid. card:Altar's Reap is the only card in this deck that would actually sac the skeleton.

(This is in response to your comment on my deck:morbid-reaper-help-wanted)

I did see your deck earlier, and I like the way you have it set up. Fume Spitter is certainly a very nice opening play, and I hadn't thought (no idea why) to use Dawntreader Elk till I saw your deck.

I playtested our decks against each other, and I found that while they were closely matched, mine won more often. To be fair, this is probably due to the fact that I won't be able to play your deck nearly as well as you do, as I have limited knowledge of all the tactics and strategies you use.

When I was playtesting, I found that Gutter Grime was every bit as strong as you make it out to be, but I was still able to take care of it, since you couldn't get it out very early. By the same token, I never found a situation in which I could properly play Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , again thanks to high mana cost. Also, how much do you end up using Demonlord of Ashmouth ? I had thought about him, but decided that his sac was too hard to control.

Let me also say that this is the first good Morbid Deck that I have found on this site. I had searched around for ideas a while ago, but everybody just had slightly modified Deathly Dominions.

The tactics I use in this deck are very strange. I usually never sac anything until i have Skirsdag High Priest on the field. and at that point, i will almost always tap a token for a token. actaully, when i play Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , i almost always have Brindle Boar and Fume Spitter on the field. And if you sac them at the right times, that's 16 extra life. With Caravan Vigil and Dawntreader Elk , i never have a problem playing him or Reaper from the Abyss . and Demonlord of Ashmouth to me, has always been like an extra token swinging. And yes, his sac is hard to control, which is why i only run one. I am considering taking him out. And thank you. I couldn't find any decks anywhere that weren't a touch-up of Deathly Dominions either.

One of the strange tactics I use in this deck is Tragic Slip ping my Young Wolf so it comes back for me to tap with Skirsdag High Priest

Ok. Parallel Lives is finally in the deck for token acceleration. Disciple of Griselbrand has replaced Festerhide Boar and Demonlord of Ashmouth is gone for a THIRD Reaper from the Abyss

Try Ulvenwald Tracker . It acts as removal and activates morbid for you. It works great with Typhoid Rats , too, so you might want a fourth. Since you're killing so many creatures, Blood Artist will help you win the close races. Mimic Vat would also help you get extra value from your creatures. I would also suggest running some number of Acidic Slime as well, either in main or sideboard.

As an aside, Birds of Paradise are never bad in green decks.

Actually, this deck has been completely changed. I'm about to update it.

July 7, 2012 3:54 p.m.

Timekeeper says... #10

Ah, changing it for the new standard?

July 7, 2012 4:28 p.m.

BlckGaming says... #11

yes.

Never seen Morbid token demon decks but this one really opened my eyes how great they can be! One thing is still bothers my mind, this deck don't really have much of a removal. Only Tragic Slip and now you don't have those Reaper from the Abyss . What was the reason for removing those Reapers away? O.O

July 8, 2012 7:08 a.m.

BlckGaming says... #13

Um, we decided that we don't need reapers. I was mad that they said no reapers, but it works. The four Soulcage Fiend s will go out for Murder when i get my hands on them.

Timekeeper says... #14

How exactly did your group of friends come up with this?It's such a strange mix, I never would have expected it to work.

July 8, 2012 1:32 p.m.

BlckGaming says... #15

We took the old Think Morbid Thoughts deck and laid it out. They said that they loved my idea and it would "take tokens to a whole new level." We worked on the best way to gain life and swarm. And it was such an obvious combo. Disciple of Griselbrand , Parallel Lives , and Skirsdag High Priest .

Blood Artist could make this quickly painful for your opponents even before you start swinging.

Moonreader1 says... #17

m13 also brought back bloodthrone vampire which you could use, and if you have a sac engine like that you could swap out dawntreader elk for the mana cheaper viridian emmisary

July 9, 2012 1:39 a.m.

BlckGaming says... #18

Viridan emmisary is not going to be standard post rotation. and the other two aren't important enough. the one life thing is nothing when you gain 5 off every token and burn with soulcage fiend. blood artist can't compare.

I think a second Garruk Relentless  Flip might be more valuable to you than either a Parallel Lives or an Ambush Viper ?

July 9, 2012 3:50 a.m.

BlckGaming says... #20

I agree. But actually, I'll be dropping land for him. I've been pulling out 7-9 lands almost every game.

July 9, 2012 3:59 a.m.

bhrusson0 says... #21

Alright that's a good idea cause you've got some ramp anyways.

July 9, 2012 4:02 a.m.

BlckGaming says... #22

yeah, but dropping a viper might help. they sit around a lot.

July 9, 2012 4:04 a.m.

bhrusson0 says... #23

Maybe you could put your Reaper from the Abyss back in for one. Or a Butcher Ghoul

The Messian says... #24

The engine of the deck, while very strong when it is going, is very fragile to removal. You will have a hard time rebounding after a board wipe, and a deck like this would be very easy to sideboard against. Take out the Priests and Lives and this deck doesn't have much going for it. Regardless, you made a decent Morbid deck, something I gave up ever seeing, and using the High Priest which is card I have been wanting to exploit! +1 from me for a very strong effort!

July 9, 2012 10:06 a.m.

BlckGaming says... #25

Yes. The deck is a little hard to use without the priest. And I've won plenty without parallel lives. One of the players that help designed and I quote "Yeah. If they kill the priest, so what? You're running four preists, 7 draw cards, and garruk can tutor. If they kill one, there's another one right around the corner." Now if they were to play Sever the Bloodline , my response is simple and I've done it plenty of times. Sac Skirsdag High Priest to the disciple, so Sever the Bloodline has no target.

I had a decklist very similar to this called Dais Demon, working off Skirsdag High Priest and Parallel Lives to make demon tokens. I really do wonder how Skirsdag High Priest gets no love or isn't a thing. +1 from moi.

September 2, 2012 8:24 p.m.

i would suggest Sheoldred, Whispering One combo with Grave Betrayal and Reaper from the Abyss so ever opponent turn you can get 2 creatures from them and in my deck i have 2 reapers and one game i had both out killing so many creatures its very helpful. Blood Artist for sure
