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.

Blasphemous Act might be good with Boros Reckoner

I don't run into much Counterspell in my playgroup, so maybe I'm just off the mark but I do run into a lot of creature removal - typically in the form of spot removal and wrath effects. So my suggestion is to add 1-4xHeroic Intervention to the mainboard and move 1x4xProwling Serpopard to the sideboard. I also don't always need enchantment/artifact removal so I suggest moving Leonin Relic-Warder to the sideboard as well, or even cutting it as you're already running a full set of Qasali Pridemage. Perhaps consider 2xFertile Ground in its place to speed up your ability to hit Monstrosity with your Lions. 1xRogue's Passage might worth considering as an added threat with said Lions, especially if you're getting Exalted pumps.

Other sideboard suggestings: Immortal Servitude - since you've got so many creatures that share low CMC's this could be really powerful against decks with wrath effects. Celestial Flare - it gets around Hexproof and Indestructible, so whatever Path doesn't hit, the Flare will. Tajuru Preserver - I know it's not a Cat, but against black/white decks running sacrifice spells, it's a real hoot. Something to deal with Flying creatures might be a good idea for the sideboard as well, though I suppose you do have a full set of Path and might just count on that removal and aggro speed to race to a win. Pithing Needle, Elixir of Immortality, and Ratchet Bomb are usually worth considering in any sideboard, too, even if only as singletons. 1-2xGhost Quarter seems worth mentioning as well as an anti-Tron measure.

Overall, I think this deck looks fun and decently well thought out, so +1 to you. I hope some of this has been helpful.

I had the same idea, but wanted to go even less reliable with it so I put Fatestitcher, Freed from the Real, and Fertile Ground in mine.
