Help! BG Deathtouch Deck

Modern Deck Help forum

Posted on May 26, 2019, 5:21 p.m. by TrumpZone

Hello! I've been working on improving my UG Deathtouch deck for some time now. After playing with the new version, I've come to the conclusion that one card does far more work than every other card in my deck: Poison Tip Archer ( This card's ability, 'Whenever another creature dies, each opponent loses 1 life.' seems very effective with deathtouch, and is very powerful in the Free For Alls my friends and I often play.

Right now the deck is as follows: ( I think by doing away with some of the trample/enchantments and focusing more on cards like Poison Tip Archer, I could create a more fun and focused deck.

In summary, I am looking for cards with similar abilities to Poison Tip Archer: specifically the ability 'Whenever another creature dies, each opponent loses 1 life'. If anyone knows any cards with this same/a similar ability, please let me know! Also, please let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Looks like the cards you are looking for are Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat . I would like to mention that they work a bit better in aristocrats decks than a dedicated deathtouch deck.

Also UG implies blue green, and this deck is actually BG black green. Not that it is a real important thing, but thought it might be nice to let you know.

Graveblade Marauder was in my old deathtouch and lifelink deck. Otherwise I would suggest not playing Zulaport Cutthroat because it only triggers on your opponent's creatures.

My sudggestions for improvement:

+2 Ambush Viper flash + deathtouch is good

+2 Poison-Tip Archer you said this worked well so play 4

+4 Blood Artist More of the same effect is good

+1 Rancor amazing card

+4 Grave Titan better win con than varaska.

+4 narnum renegade better 1 mana deathtoucher

+4 Graveblade Marauder I like this card in deathtouch decks

+21 cards

-2 Gorgon Recluse too high mana cost and no way to madness it.

-2 Vraska the Unseen too slow of a win con.

-3 Pharika's Chosen narnum renegade is better.

-2 Nyx Weaver has no synergy here.

-1 Hythonia the Cruel too slow and expensive.

-2 Primal Rage

-3 Unholy Strength

-2 Wreath of Geists

-2 Boar Umbra

-2 Reaper of the Wilds Blood Artist is better and you have to pay to give this deathtouch.

-21 cards

auras are not good unless they are put on hexproof creatures. Except for Rancor that card is great because it returns to your hand. Pump spells are not great outside of stompy and infect decks.
