Murphy77 Deckling

Started collecting and playing MTG in September 2015. Still very much a nooby. I have a limited number of pre-origons cards and am trying to build a competitive deck/s with cards that I do already have.

Said on Flicker M...


Thanks for the comment ancientskull.

If you use a flicker trigger on Flickerwisp, you get one trigger back. What I really need is more triggers like Cloudshift that return the flickered card before end of turn. I had Ravenous Chupacabra in my first draft, and just felt that it was too many 4-mana creatures that might be difficult to summon in the early game (with Gonti, Lord of Luxury).

Instant flicker of Blade Splicer and Ravenous Chupacabra, before the battle phase would be great, but I need to look at options for flicker triggers to make that more aggro approach work.

I agree that I could leave all my enchantments in the sideboard and focus on flicker triggers and ETB effects.

Said on Sarkhan's UnsealWIN...


Pelakka Wurm is just too difficult to cast. I also would not count on kicking Fight with Fire.

I like the idea of replacing Gift of Paradise and Grow from the Ashes with Colossal Majesty, which should give you a lot of added card draw. Wayward Swordtooth would then let you cast any surplus lands and might quickly transform into a big-hitting creature. Prowling Serpopard can actually do a lot in this type of deck if you are playing against a control deck with cards like Essence Scatter, you also want as many triggers as possible for Sarkhan's Unsealing and Colossal Majesty. I prefer Lathliss to Verix, but that may be a personal preference. If you have some, Glorybringer would fit right in.

Finish off with some instant burn, like Lightning Strike

Sorry - missed that Heroes' Reunion also had green. I was thinking along the lines of Cure for Lifegain

Said on Tainted Love...


I love the combination of Beacon of Immortality and Tainted Remedy for an instant win. I don't see that splashing green for Siege Rhino works too well in this deck and would prefer to stick to /.

+2 Alms Beast, +1 Beacon of Immortality, +1 Idyllic Tutor, -4 Siege Rhino, then simplify your land-base, with maybe just Isolated Chapel, Plains and Swamp

Said on MONO BLUE - ......


This looks like a fairly solid mono-blue flier deck. Curious Obsession just seems vulnerable in this deck - if you don't attack, it dies. If your enchanted creature dies, Curious Obsession dies, etc. I think that I would tend to play 3 Favorable Winds and 2 Curious Obsession or Aethersphere Harvester.

Yes, I agree with Purple_Mage, any added card draw will add value to this deck. While Walking Ballista adds value to almost any deck, it is not doing too much here, while Nimble Obstructionist would bolster your control package and/or give you an extra card draw in a pinch.

Said on Mill, just Mill...


Check out Mill, just Mill copy M where I played around with a few changes to your deck.

Said on Traxos' Thopters...


The way that I read it, Blink of an Eye, Curator's Ward and Short Sword are all rather weak in this deck and If you particularly want to play them, move them into the sideboard. Ornithopter is an artifact with 0 mana cost that also works as a chump-blocker. Essence Scatter provides some early disruption. Mechanized Production can give you another win condition. I would round out the sideboard with Negate and Unwind. If you have a few Karn, Scion of Urza lying around, they would fit right in, but I wouldn't buy them specially at their current list price.

I love the idea - +1. I would be tempted to replace Fumigate and Cast Out with 2 Gideon's Intervention (just because Fumigate could hurt you or be a dead card in the hand if you have creatures out, but no Shalai, Voice of Plenty). In the same vein, maybe 2 each of Lyra Dawnbringer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Shalai can also crew Heart of Kiran

Said on None...


In this deck Draconic Disciple is just a very expensive mana dork, where Llanowar Elves would be far better. The strength of Dragon Egg is in the token that is created if it gets killed, and Arcades, the Strategist really adds no value. Maybe something like Skyship Stalker, which can also be loaded with surplus mana to become a bigger striker, but I like the idea of Helm of the Host, that can copy Lathliss, producing lots of 5/5 fliers each time that you flicker a dragon.

Said on M19M Mill...


Take a look at Set-up for Slam Dunk Mill (although that is not a budget deck and many of the cards will rotate out in a month or two)

August 9, 2018 8:26 a.m.

I get the feeling that you need more control cards to protect your mill. You have a lot of creatures for a mono-blue mill deck. I went to the opposite extreme (creatureless) in M19M Mill, making room for cards that negate or disrupt your opponent's game.

Said on Silent Aberration...


If you are going to attack with Wight of Precinct Six, equipping it with Trepanation Blade could be fun. Would Fraying Sanity not do more in the long run than Memory Sluice?

August 6, 2018 10:16 a.m.

Good comment, I looked at Yahenni, which gains +1/+1 when an opponent's creature dies as apposed to Defiant which gets pumped when your creature dies. If you have Grave Pact on the field, this will often amount to the same thing. Authority of the Consuls seems to under-perform in this deck, so why not both....change made

August 6, 2018 9:43 a.m.

How would your game plan change if you dropped Walking Ballista for Grave Pact and Doomed Dissenter for Reassembling Skeleton?

Said on Simply Enchanting...


Carnage Tyrant is very expensive to cast (cmc) and Thorn Lieutenant either produces tokens that do nothing in this deck, or you need lots of spare mana to ramp him.

Forebear's Blade and Blanchwood Armor are good enchantments for hexproof creatures. Initially, only Vine Mare is hexproof, but once you get Shalai, Voice of Plenty, you have a selection of hexproof creatures.

With On Serra's Wings your creatures become legendary, so Blackblade Reforged could work instead of Blanchwood Armor.

I don't know that my / enchantment deck is any better than this, but you could have a look at M19M UG Mill

Said on M19M UG Mill...


Decided to add in Jade Guardian as a second boggle, then be slightly more aggressive with my control suite (Syncopate instead of Anticipate). Lost a few enchantments along the way, but the deck should be more consistent.

Said on AEthermage's Idea...


My version of your deck would be AEthermage's Idea copy M (mainly because it would cost me less than $10 with the cards that I already have)

August 5, 2018 7:21 p.m.

Said on AEthermage's Idea...


For added card draw just play 4 each of Mulldrifter and Wall of Omens. I think that your deck is most likely better than mine, which is still very much a work in progress, see Flicker Tax M

Said on AEthermage's Idea...


I play Solemn Recruit in my / flicker deck.
