Agonizing Remorse Discussion

Alrighty, I see the cross, and seek to help before posting my own deck! First, I want to know why Spawn of Mayhem is in there. He may be a 4/4 flier, but he does what else for you? I would switch that out for Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath for sure, If you can afford it (I know I can't). If you cannot, I would suggest Rankle, Master of Pranks. After all, he deals with hand disruption. And he is a flier. Oh, also, he can sacrifice one of Garruk's dogs to get him loyalty. Lovestruck Beast is hardly have a 1/1, but if you are playing it right, it won't be on the battlefield much. Replace that with Agonizing Remorse, I guess. As for ramp, you will need a Growth Spiral, although the titan does a better job of it.

Izzet Maximization Is another deck that needs work. I'm open to suggestions!

Sideboard could contain some of these (keeping it budget):

Agonizing Remorse


Dark Betrayal

Fated Conflagration or Lava Axe

Fight with Fire

Hour of Devastation

Magma Spray (Magma Jet is even better)

I don't care what other formats a card is played in. Pioneer is unique.

Agonizing Remorse is ALSO a multi tool. It can exile from the yard.

The exile is important in the current meta against cards like Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath Arclight Phoenix Dread Wanderer Scrapheap Scrounger

I don't know if you've played many tournaments and know what the meta is like.

If you have a very good curve you will end up with a lot of valuable cards in your opening hand. Bant Spirit decks excel at that.

I have a rule where I mulligan until I have two lands and a play by Turn 2. I try to never mulligan lower than five cards.

Of course has you all kinds of covered, if you play that. Invasive Surgery and Swan Song are your go tos.

You should also be running removal. They take your cards, you destroy/exile theirs.

Finallly, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Nothing to stop you running a playset of Thoughtseize/Agonizing Remorse yourself. I run 4 of each in my Control deck.

Duress is another good option. My favourite thing to see is to Lost Legacy all Inverters of Truth our of their stupid combo netdecks.

magwaaf, I could possibly cut the 2x Liliana's Mastery for more Fatal Push, but I haven't yet found the need. Dark Salvation works significantly better in most cases. On that note, Dark Salvation is superior to Fatal Push in a deck like this. There are exceptions, but few of them. Dark Salvation doesn't have the CMC limitations of Fatal Push and it can hit indestructible creatures-- and it can often be cast for a single mana. It's just better in a zombie deck.

Cutting Cryptbreaker would not be a good move! That's the card draw engine that makes this deck work! Were it not for Cryptbreaker, this deck wouldn't be any good, to be honest. It needs that card draw engine to keep looking for cards, and it greatly benefits from the ability to generate zombies if we're flooding out with lands. When we can be aggressive we're usually winning anyway and we don't use Cryptbreaker's abilities. When there's board stall or it is unwise to attack, Cryptbreaker is the card that generates advantage.

Dark Salvation vs Grasp of Darkness-- you do realize that Dark Salvation may be cast for only a single if I have zombies on board, right? Grasp of Darkness is a great card, but it is generally inferior (in this zombie tribal deck) to Dark Salvation.

I don't own any Thoughtseize and I am too cheap to buy them. Hence not having any in the deck, and having Agonizing Remorse instead.

Mutavault would be nice, but I don't own any of those. Westvale Abbey  Flip is great when it works, and only mediocre otherwise. You are correct that Mutavault would be better, but, alas, I don't own any and I'm too cheap to buy them.

Thank you for the suggestions!

I like to say this deck is very expensive, and won't work try to change some cards like 10: Grisly Spectacle try instead with Murderous Rider or you might prefer Spark Harvest this deck is based devotion but tolkens dont work on them do you know? you should change strategy or using better Mana/performance cost, Agonizing Remorse I really advise you to use this 2 sites to looking well your cards like and magic official database you can google it with an advance search engine, try mtg Wiki as well!!

good luck

In my opinion Agonizing Remorse is better than Collective Brutality

I like Lost Legacy better than Stain the Mind - it comes down earlier if your Opponent keeps killing your Creatures.

You don't have that many spells to disrupt your Opponent. Murderous Rider is fairly important in the current meta.

You might also,consider what I call the counterspell, Supernatural Stamina

Deck is fun to play, and has a good curve.

Interesting, so you rather be base black over base blue? That's not bad, just not all that common neither. In that case I recommend cutting the omens (you already have 5 other permanet 2drops without them) for the 4th opt, move the 3rd languish to the main and either the 4th KCommand or the 4th thought erasure. I don't like the riders, but if your meta is full of aggro I can understand why you run them. Still, you're very soft to graveyard decks, 2 ashioks in the side simply won't cut it, with that in mind I suggest finding room for Agonizing Remorse If you do move the languis to the main thats 1 space, and I think you can cut on a number of unmoored ego, but what you cut is irrelevant, I'm just concerned you run into GB delirium, gitrog monster, cauldron of eternity or some other sort of gy nonsense
