Darkblast Discussion

KuzcosPoison on Tayam and Tayam again

1 week ago

RNR_Gaming thank you for suggestions! I actually replaced Dismember with Darkblast for some dredge so Stinkweed Imp seems like a good addition, will try it out. Trying to find the line since I still need creatures on board to get counters for tayam's ability.

king-saproling thank you also! Mesmeric Orb looks fantastic, will try and pick one up, will try Seal of Primordium over Qasali Pridemage too since it seems a bit faster. I did start with Meren but found her a bit slow and it turned out I didn't actually want a lot of my creatures back in my hand. Also trying to limit the number of creatures with cmc higher than 3 so I don't get stuck.

MillionLittleE on EDH - Glissa, the Traitor (Combo)

I would also like to say, like I always do, that executioner capsule is a trap for Glissa, and I much prefer Darkblast and it works well with forbidden orchard and Entomb

So, pay offs and dredges are pretty nice for a deck like this. Dread Return and Vengeful Pharaoh have nice synergy with creatres and graveyard sheniaghans. Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, Dakmor Salvage, and Darkblast are great for feeling your yard; getting them in the bin can be easily accomplished with Buried Alive, Entomb, Ideas Unbound and Forbidden Alchemy

Any time you are in green and want to speed up a deck, you should first make sure you are using all of the 1 drop mana dorks available to you. Birds of Paradise,Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, Elves of Deep Shadow, Deathrite Shaman. In doing so you can drop a few lands to speed up the deck and have fewer dead draws. Mana dorks op.

There are a few cards in here that I find questionable that could be replaced for more speed and power if that is what you are looking for. Doubling Season imo is not really the way you want to go unless you are all in on either tokens or counters and I don't think you have quite enough considering the cmc of this bad boy. Darksteel Forge is weak here due to the low number of artifacts and the fact that muldrotha doesn't give a golly gosh darn about things being destroyed. That Which Was Taken is another instance of mully-D not caring about things dying too much so it could go. Planar Portal is a very high cmc for a tutor, sure it is repeatable, but a Diabolic Intent, Eldritch Evolution, Birthing Pod, Pattern of Rebirth, Entomb, Buried Alive, Intuition or Finale of Devastation would be faster and therefore stronger here. As Foretold is a sick card in formats where you can cast suspend cards for free reliably, here... you don't have enough cheap spells to get the most from it. Mortus Strider's ability is redundant and is basically just a vanilla 1/1.

A few fun cards you could add are Darkblast, Life from the Loam, God-Eternal Rhonas, God-Eternal Bontu, God-Eternal Kefnet, Lotleth Troll, Underrealm Lich, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Deadbridge Chant, Jarad's Orders, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

I hope this wall of text has some ideas you like!

Tata on Complete Mayhem (Budget)

Why not Retribution of the Meek or Fell the Mighty over Wrath of God or Day of Judgment ? I think they are just better, usually, in Alesha. What about Austere Command over cleansing nova?

Have you considered playing Ranger-Captain of Eos or plain ol' Ranger of Eos ? You have a decent package with the three 1CMC sac/discard outlets that you're playing. The Eos Bros are something I've been considering for my Alesha deck for a while.

I am very skeptical about Putrid Imp . I think it doesn't do enough in a deck that isn't completely tuned towards explosive combo wins. I'd rather play Tortured Existence .

I'm surprised by the conspicuous absence of Swords to Plowshares . What gives? Your interaction package seems odd with Enlightened Ascetic but no swords. Darkblast is another odd choice. Are these all meta calls?

Strangelove on Syr Konrad EDH

+1 my guy. @Your post

I wanted to second Necropotence , great combo, as well as the classic Painter's Servant / Grindstone .

Darkblast is probably playable.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Zombie... goes infinite.

Putrid Goblin / Lesser Masticore + Metallic Mimic + Sacrifice... also goes infinite... maybe this and Gravecrawler could push you into a soft Zombie Tribal subtheme?

Have you considered Living Death or Twilight's Call ?

Lifeline or Champion of Stray Souls are similar to a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker build.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.

You could go crazy and try the Lich cards or maybe Forbidden Crypt .

Geth, Lord of the Vault

You really need more draw and to that end try Thought Gorger / Geier Reach Sanitarium / Null Profusion / Harvester of Souls

I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

Good luck!
