kamarupa Deckspert

"Kamarupa is a compound Sanskrit word formed by Kama - often translated as "desire, wish, passion, longing, pleasure" - and rupa - "form, shape, figure." In Theosophical literature it usually refers to the astral shells of a deceased person which remain on the Kamaloka "until they fade out from it by the complete exhaustion of the effects of the mental impulses that created these eidolons of human and animal passions and desires."" - http://theosophy.wiki/w-en/index.php?title=Kama-Rupa


I started playing casually somewhere around 2012 and settled on Modern as my format of choice, being slower than Legacy, and smarter on price than Standard.

I like hashing out ideas here on tappedout in the form of decks. I used to playtest my budget ideas for paper on untap.in, but since V2, have found the lag too great to remain viable. So I've switched Cockatrice. (I've yet to try untap.in V3) Sometimes, when I really enjoy playing a deck online, I'll try to build it in paper, too.

I'm hard headed and learning still. I try to be helpful and nice, but I know I can get short with big egos and pocketbooks.

You're most gracious, SenseiRamen. I'm truly humbled. I've made that addition.

perhaps consider 1-2xDimir Machinations as a lower CMC tutor for Tainted Remedy?

I definitely see your point. My thought was that while what you say is true, the net in your example was only 1. Additionally, given how few creatures I'm running, it's fairly likely the Wall will be removed as soon as the Remedy hits. Whereas, something like Rest for the Weary can net me 8 life or deal 8 damage for the same CMC, and, at instant speed, is harder to predict/prevent for opponents. So my thinking is that lifegain instants are more versatile, if also having less overall damage potential.

Thanks for the upvotes, Flooremoji & Silverdrake!

I'll definitely swap out those Diabolic Tutors for Mastermind's Acquisition

I don't think I can afford Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. I tried it with 4xWall of Shards, but it seemed like it was practically a dead card in my hand without a Tainted Remedy down. Can you tell me how it plays for you?
