Bile Blight just better then last grasp and for slightly bigger creatures use Grasp of Darkness

Hi, I have a few suggestions 1. Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage . This guy is a SA + up to three discard. 2. Ensnaring Bridge This is crucial to keeping you safe- more effective than most removal

Liliana's Triumph is very situational, I think you should consider other removal options like
3. Dismember or Victim of the night and perhaps keep Bile Blight in the side board.

Overall its a nice/ simple deck, I like it.

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.

I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade , Geth's Verdict , Mana Leak , Angelsong , Assassin's Trophy , Bile Blight , Commencement of Festivities , Dampen Thought , Dash Hopes , Deflecting Palm , Essence Scatter , Feed the Clan , Growth Spiral , Heroes' Reunion , Increasing Vengeance , Nourish , Raise the Alarm , Redirect , Solidarity of Heroes , Turn to Frog , Twincast , Veil of Secrecy , Whitesun's Passage .

I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

You thought about running Geth's Verdict, Vendetta, Price of Fame, Entomb, Victim of the night, Go for the Throat, Snuff Out, Cast Down, Bile Blight, Murderous Cut, Sudden Death, Devour in Shadow

Revel in Riches can also be a good win con since your focusing on targetted removal or creatures dying.

Hope that helps!

Personally, I’d remove the Bile Blight and add two more Tragic Slip/Victim of Night or Doom Blade

seshiro_of_the_orochi I would definitely add in a bit more ramp so you would be able to cast more spells. Some recommendation I would add are Fatal Push, Cremate (So they can't reanimate their creature plus cantrip), Bile Blight (tech against tokens), Victim of the night, Hero's Downfall, Sudden Spoiling (absolutely love this card), Geth's Verdict, and Vona's Hunger.

Some ramp or resources I would also add in would be Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Cabal Coffers, Caged Sun just to name a few.

Hope that helps!

Okay, so like we were discussing before, what is it that you want to do with this deck? What you are facing is a fast, tribal deck. If he's in mono-white, a few board wipes should be enough to slow him down to where you can overcome. White lacks draw, so if he over extends and you clear the board it will take time for him to rebuild. My suggestions:

Overall, this deck is a bit directionless. It's a mix of decent cards, but not too much synergy between them. That's fine in many kitchen table settings, but will be problematic in more competitive environments. Lifegain alone isn't a great victory condition in competitive environments, as it tends to scale poorly in longer battles.

I think you can stand to add some better interaction - you need some early-game kill spells. Bile Blight on its own will not get the job done, and Stab Wound is not all that great. Black has access to some great budget kill spells, such as Victim of Night, which can be used to remove even large creatures.

Radiant Fountain doesn't do much for you. It is slow mana, and might hurt your ability to play two colours. Two life is insubstantial--after all, players are willing to burn two life for Overgrown Tomb without a second thought.


TypicalTimmy - the text of the card (and the rules) are very clear--it is one search. You're not looking through your library multiple times--you're looking through the library once and pulling out multiple cards.
