Cards like Howling Mine that don't matter who controls them are good in these decks
This looks pretty sweet. I have a Radha Kill Them All deck with a similar theme of bringing equal pain to everyone. Consider Spellshock
, and Pyrostatic Pillar
as more enchantments to give away, and maybe Fumiko the Lowblood
or Heartless Hidetsugu
to keep people's life totals down.
I really dig Spellshock! I'll be definitely adding that one. I'm more unsure of Pyrostatic Pillar as it's conditional. How has it worked out for you? Thanks, I was wondering if there were more group pain cards out there.
I've noticed that 1) lifegain draws aggro 2) group pain draws aggro. People go for me A LOT. I need to dedicate more card slots to protecting myself.
does it's job pretty well for me - not as good as Spellshock
but both really punish cheap smells more anyway (since you cast more of them). it probably also depends on your meta - if you play against a Mayael deck, it's probably not so good.
As for protection, people incorrectly assessing threats is unfortunate but happens all the time. After a few games they might learn you're not really who they should be targetting - life totals are not really that important in EDH - especially compared to lands and cards. Soul Snare could be a good rattlesnake here. Traditional group hug like Howling Mine might also be good.
