Core Prowler

Core Prowler

Creature — Phyrexian Horror

Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

When Core Prowler is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

InfectedToe on BOROS modular fun

1 day ago

This is a pretty fun deck, kinda wanted to build a Zabaz deck at one point myself but you're the resident Boros enjoyer so I knew you would at some point lol.

Regardless, I do have some suggestions: Panharmonicon is an absolute must-include, it literally doubles counters across the board. Also, Extruder could be a great explosive finisher.

As for slightly weaker but still good cards to include, Abzan Battle Priest could offer a good amount of lifegain, Cloud Key is basic artifact tribal, and Core Prowler is another cheeky infect wincon with bonus proliferation.

As far as cards to replace, Chief of the Foundry is pretty weak here as it doesn't actually count as counters for modular creatures, and Energy Chamber is exceedingly slow in practice.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

3 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

Some good infect cards: Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Grafted Exoskeleton, Phyrexian Juggernaut, Blightwidow, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (if you're not on a budget), Inkmoth Nexus, Corpse Cur, Core Prowler, Virulent Wound, and Crumbling Ashes.

If you'd like a common green wincon, that'd be Triumph of the Hordes. A more budget-friendly option is Predatory Focus.

I hope you have fun having no friends! ;]

triproberts12 on Mutate/Infect deck ratios

Well, it's literally a pile of cards with no lands, making it not a decklist, and you've chosen an awfully odd hill to die on, given how many forum posts are literally just "Help, I'm losing! Here's my list!" For the sake of rules lawyering, despite only adding the pile as an exemplary aid to help answer my question about ratios, perhaps I'll list out all the cards. There's Ichor Rats, Plague Myr, Core Prowler, Blighted Agent, wait, no that one's a human. Where was I?

Thought of a couple more worth mentioning Spellskite does a great job of taking pesky removal away from your infect creatures. If you need more creatures I would suggest Plague Myr and Core Prowler is also great for tacking on some more counters if it dies.

PHATJER, a shame your playgroup doesn't like Stax :( If anything, this deck relies more on soft locks - nothing like Winter Orb , Static Orb , or Sphere of Resistance ...but I digress. So to make sure we're on the same page, the Stax elements of the deck are 7 cards, specifically:

We cut all the Praetors and the Artifact/Enchantments that synergize with proliferation triggers, what does that leave? Well that opens up slots to dive deeper into the remaining themes of the deck: proliferate, -1/-1 counters, +1/+1 counters, and infect. I'd recommend building out into all three, while still maintaining that sweet sweet vorthos - of course i'm going to suggest Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . To accompany him, the following infect creatures need to be added as well: Necropede , Corpse Cur and Core Prowler to gain more value for Yawgmoth's " Pay 1 life, Sacrifice another creature: Put a -1/-1 counter on up to one target creature and draw a card."

So now, that leaves us with 3 slots left. What should we fill those slots with? If you're going for flavor over function there's the very fun Fuel for the Cause . Then you could toss in an additional bomb in the form of Cathars' Crusade . Last, but definitely not least i'd probably toss in Beast Within for a bit more interaction, which never hurts. What's best about the previously mentioned is that it has a New Phyrexia printing which keeps things on flavor. So a quick recap of my suggested replacements:

Alternatively, you could opt for creatures that have more synergy with Yawgmoth, pretty much anything in the archetype of Reassembling Skeleton . That's pretty much all the ideas I could come up with off the top of my head. What do you think? Also, thanks for the +1.
