Dead of Winter


All nonsnow creatures get -X/-X until end of turn, where X is the number of snow permanents you control.

Some thoughts:

  • Most modern decks can’t justify running more than 3-4 cards costing 4 mana, and often run nothing above this cost. You’ve got a whopping 15 cards costing 4-or more, which is faar too much and going to lead to some very slow plays. I’d suggest reducing the curve significantly.

  • there are a bunch of strong cards from MH1 that could help your deck play a LOT stronger. Namely Ice-Fang Coatl, Marit Lage's Slumber, Dead of Winter, and possibly Abominable Treefolk.

  • 2 mana is kindof the absolute most you want to pay for a generic killspell, so i’d advise against Poison the Cup. Fatal Push would serve you much better.

     elliotmward97: Oh, Dead of Winter is a card I actually intended on adding when I added Draugr Necromancer and switched over to Snow Lands, but forgot about. Good call! =)

These are run all snow basics and then run Dead of Winter. It's great against alot of decks and an easy board out option against the rest.

I would board more Dead of Winter and Glacial Revelation, they're OP on a snow pile. Perhaps a couple more Into the North for the snow taplands?

The deck has multiple reasonable game plans:

  1. Assemble the Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage combo quickly and steal the game.

  2. Play a creature that scales up with the number of snow permanents, such as Abominable Treefolk, and win in two hits.

  3. Grind long game with card advantage using cards like Scrying Sheets, Dead of Winter, Glacial Revelation or Blood on the Snow + Eternal Witness .

babydaggers, I haven't really found the lack of boardwipes to be an issue in the games I have played with the deck so far. In one of the last games I played, I had Torment of Hailfire in my opening hand and was in a position to dump about 10ish mana into the X (treasures and Crypt Ghast both on board), but I held off on using it so as not to win too early when everyone else was having a good time. Definitely one of those "I my next turn I totally would have..." type games. As much as I wish I had used it, it did set up a pretty cool turn interaction where myself and 2 of my other friends pooled our resources to take out our other friend who threatened 2 different combo wins with his Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck. In that game, my saving graces were Tibalt's Trickery and Chaos Warp.

I've been kicking around the idea of replacing Exsanguinate with Dead of Winter. I do have a copy of Toxic Deluge in another deck, but I think that deck needs it more, and Dead of Winter could be some decent tech in this one. I like Exsanguinate and have both died to it and also prolonged some of my own games with it. If it came down to it, I'd rather cut Exsanguinate over Torment of Hailfire.

My meta is varied enough that someone is always packing a boardwipe, so I thought I could either A) steal one via theft effects or B) let someone else carry the responsibility of making that decision. Since my playgroup is mostly just my friends from college, I've learned that sometimes its better politically to let someone else carry the burden of decisions that might not be as popular with the rest of the table lol.

Thank you Carpecanum. I like that I can board wipe myself Incase things get messy with Dead of Winter. No risk no reward. :)

I don't Wana give my friends creatures. Lol. So koronas is out of the question.

That's a pretty land. Too bad it's not basic. :(

Dead of Winter is one of the few cards that will actually destroy all your Indestructible gods... Maybe something like Eerie Interlude to get them off board before its played?

Karona, False God might be funny. You should always have an indestructible blocker and when its your turn Karona gets to declare GOD as the chosen creature type.
