Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

4 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! ;]

The only infect creature that stands out to me for a cut would be Corpse Cur

I don't think it does much in the deck since, if things are going well, Marchesa's ability would just return whatever creature to play.

I've considered running lightning greaves and boots but I think they may just slow down the deck.

Even recasting Marchesa a few times in the game because of removal/counterspells doesn't mean it's over for her so, who knows ha.

Infect. Do it. You know you wanna. Mutate a 6/6 onto Blighted Agent. Get some value out of that Ichor Rats and Viridian Corrupter. Eat a whole board with Flesh-Eater Imp. Dump your library into your graveyard, then make Corpse Cur and Otrimi bring both pieces back.

I also think that a few more infect creatures would help. Hand of the Praetors and Corpse Cur would be at the top of my list.

Phyresis would also be a good add, for all of the non-infect creatures you have. Throw that on your Phyrexian Obliterator or any of the many demons.

That's all I got. Love the build.

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.

Mj3913 Thanks for the suggestions.

As you already know, I like brewing funky decks like this.

Corpse Cur was drafted into my Army initially but I excused him later cause I don't run that many Infect dudes to require his recursion effect. So majority of the time, I'm summoning him with no one to recur from the graveyard, which makes him expensive at for a 2/2.

You made a very good point about flashing in the Snakes at end of opponent's turn, give them a gun during my turn and they can start raining bullets into our opponents' squad. Let me see how I can fit them into the already tight deck list!

And yes, searching for commons is both fun and challenging. A lot of cards that we're used to using, cannot be used due to their rarity and we start to appreciate lesser known cards that we never knew existed. It's a real test of our deck building skills.
