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://www.theosophy.wiki/mywiki/index.php?title=K%C4%81mar%C5%ABpa


I started playing casually somewhere around 2012 and soon settled on Modern as my format of choice. I like hashing out ideas here on tappedout in the form of decks. I then playtest my budget ideas for paper on untap.net and occasionally on Cockatrice. And finally, I buy the deck in paper if it all works out.

I usually build around Combo and Tribal themes.

I'm hard headed and learning still.

Thanks for the suggestion and nice words, Haarva91. I've considered adding white for Wall of Omens and Perimeter Captain, though I think it would destabilize my budget mana base. I've gone back and forth a lot over Traproot Kami - it's only better than a Steel Wall if I'm playing against fliers/if I get more than 4xForest down - but adding white would certainly make Traproot Kami much less viable. I've also been thinking about dropping Kin-Tree Invocation, dropping the splash of black and going with a w/g build. Maybe I'll explore that in a new build. Cheers!

Your CMC seems too high. Authority of the Consuls would probably be good. Oppressive Rays is also nice. Solemnity might be good in the sideboard - that can really mess with a lot of decks. If you run Phyrexian Unlife, too, you'll have a good safety net in the combo.

Looks pretty good, +1!

Maybe swap out a Harmonize or two for Commune with the Gods to be more likely to get an Assault Formation.

Many thanks for the upvotes CheapnFast and SirSh4ggy! Also thanks for your thoughts, CheapnFast. I originally considered Gleam of Authority and I think even bought a full set just in case, so I'll have to dig them up. Honestly, because I do own this deck in paper and play it fairly often, Ordeal of Heliod is usually relegated to the sideboard in favor of additional removal spells. I only mainboard it when it seems I really need to gain some extra life. But I think I'd like to try Gleam again, not so much for the pump, as for the Vigilance and Bolster. I took a look at the deck you linked. Good stuff there. Cheers!

Basically, there is no manaramp in either blue or black in Modern. I'd consider adding Bojuka Bog and Mortuary Mire as non-basic lands. Things that make people sacrifice is a good way around hexproof and indestructible. Geth's Verdict is good for that. Also, wraths get around hexproof. Bontu's Last Reckoning, for example, would do the trick. Glaring Spotlight also does the job, though it's not very versatile.
