Curse of Stalked Prey Discussion

ZendikariWol on Lorge Cat Daddy (Ajani)

I love a player who goes for the flavor win, but I also feel like you could do more to really focus the mechanical identity of your deck.

Cats are associated strongly with equipment, which Ajani plays into with +1/+1 counters, which are also good for beefing up one's creatures. The issue with that is you essentially have 54 deck slots to split between creatures, equipment, ramp, removal, and card draw.

You could also just do tribal. Though cats do not have many lords (the only one you don't have is Regal Caracal), general tribal cards such as Herald's Horn, Adaptive Automaton, Shared Animosity, the Kindred cycle (Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, and Kindred Charge), Metallic Mimic, Icon of Ancestry, Door of Destinies, Steely Resolve, Obelisk of Urd, or Vanquisher's Banner could serve you well.

You could go more towards Ajani's +1 counter theme, but most of the payoffs for that are non-cat. That said, there are some good noncreature options: Curse of Stalked Prey, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Curse of Predation, Hindervines, Inspiring Call, and Mayael's Aria and other power-related payoffs.

Strangelove on Marchesa, the Black Rose

@your post

Hey! I built a budget Black Rose deck and, you're right, it is hard to win! The throne mechanic can be really restrictive. I think it's important to remember Marchesa wants to be aggro. Flayer of the Hatebound is the closest you can get to combo (with Marchesa, burning people for 9 at each end step). So make an enemy... try to kill someone ASAP. Dethrone other players only if you have a way to nuke your life, on-demand +1/+1 counters, or board that can 1-2-shot someone.

You need more creatures. At least 28.

If you want to win consistently, I'd play more stax pieces like Sadistic Hypnotist , Oona's Blackguard , Noxious Toad , etc. Maybe even Specter tribal with the likes of Sedraxis Specter . You really want to slow your opponents down and secure your board; like how Boros aggro needs Armageddon .

Alternatively, run a suite of 6+ 1-2 cmc counterspells like Negate , Narset's Reversal , etc so you can defend your tempo.

Purphoros, God of the Forge wins games.

I would consider cutting...

Phyrexian Arena ... I'd rather draw more. < Slithermuse , Toothy, Imaginary Friend , etc.

Dark Prophecy ... Good card, but you're not making a lot of tokens. BBB is too restrictive for it to be worth it. < Smothering Abomination .

Black Market ... This belongs in a control deck with Exsanguinate , etc... and there are better ways of paying Marchesa's commander tax. < Revel in Riches .

Ugin, the Ineffable / Meteor Golem ... You want to avoid 5+ cmc single-target-removal. You don't have time to answer threats at the end of your curve. < Nevermaker , Boompile , Nevinyrral's Disk .

By Force ... you don't need this and Vandalblast .

Altar of Dementia ... any other engine on a stick is better.

I might add...

Plaguecrafter ... all-star.

Insurrection / Mob Rule ... wins.

Shifting Shadow ... great engine in Marchesa.

Breath of Fury ... extra combats will win.

Puppeteer Clique ... fun theft.

Grave Titan ... you might just need some pricey 1-card houses.

Curse of Stalked Prey ... ignore the Throne.

Trophy Mage ... tutor Ashnod's Altar , etc

Sidisi, Undead Vizier ... tutor.

Fleshwrither ... maybe?

Whip of Erebos ... to combo with "Pay life:" ...or some other life gain.

Good luck!

Crested Craghorn , Flowstone Overseer , Krosan Cloudscraper , Root Elemental , Fanatic of Xenagos sind einfach nicht gut... da gibt es besseres.

Vulshok Sorcerer da bin ich mir unsicher, was du damit willst. Ja, er kann gut sein, wenn jemand viele kleine Sachen spielt, aber sehr häufig ist er auch nutzlos.

Als Faustregel spiele ich immer 8 Mana Artefakte: Gruul Cluestone , Gruul Keyrune , Gruul Locket , Gruul Signet sind günstige Klassiker.

Ich habe noch ein paar Empfehlungen, die alle irgendwie mit Countern synergieren: Bane of Progress , Bow of Nylea , Curse of Predation , Curse of Stalked Prey , Durable Handicraft , Fangren Firstborn , Forgotten Ancient , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Longshot Squad (stellvertretend für alle Kreaturen mit Outlast), Mowu, Loyal Companion , Ravenous Slime , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Rubblebelt Raiders , Song of Freyalise , Verdurous Gearhulk , Ravager Wurm , Rhythm of the Wild

Hier noch Karten mit etwas höherem Preisschild (aber auch nicht zu hoch): Hardened Scales , Managorger Hydra , Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Vielleicht wäre es auch eine gute Möglichkeit Surrak Dragonclaw als Commander zu nehmen und dir so Zugriff auf Blau zu ermöglichen. Mir ist aufgefallen, dass bei dir eh ein wenig das Ziehen von Karten zu fehlen scheint.. Ansonsten empfehle ich Samut, Voice of Dissent . Ihr weiß kannst du wenn du willst ja auch ignorieren

Did you consider Metallic Mimic so that your dragons have counters you can proliferate with Volt Charge? Curse of Stalked Prey is also a relatively efficient way to get counters on your creatures. Ring of Valkas also has some additional utility. Of course, it's Dragon Blood that is the flavor victory.

No Sarkhan the Masterless to dissuade attacks? Slumbering Dragon seems like it would be a fun inclusion, too. Skarrgan Hellkite and Scourge of the Throne are two other rare +1/+1 counter dragons. (There are four more I remember, but they're not as useful here, IIRC. Finally, Door of Destinies works well with tribal themes AND proliferate.

I find when budget building, its better to try and find cheaper cards with synergies than do straight downgrades.

A set like 4x Mogg War Marshal 4x Goblin Instigator Is cheap and very scary when combined with Goblin Grenade and Goblin Assault / Curse of Stalked Prey .

Cards like Goblin Grenade / Shrapnel Blast also alow for cards like Howl of the Horde to have an oversize impact- 15 damage turn four is no joke. Pack a Bomat Courier , some disposable artifacts, Slag Fiend and you've got yourself a deck that will make people blink.

There are similar options throughout mono red- less exciting but still powerful cards which are just less flexible than other options. Maligned one drops like Stromkirk Noble , or standard funstuff like Breath of Fury .

Browbeat is cheap thanks to Risk Factor , and is still a great budget option.

Other efficient engines Cathartic Reunion / Fiery Temper / The Flame of Keld
