When Phyresis is attached to Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, does the 4 damage it does to any target(opponent) apply as poison counters?

coinfliplarry Thanks for stopping by. I did have Inferno Titan in the list originally. I found that his 3 dmg x 2 was a bit underwhelming and I usually wouldn't have any mana for his fire breathing. I also playtested Drakuseth, Maw of Flames as an upgrade for it. I found Drakuseth's evasion and more burn Damage to b much better then inferno. I eventually cut him to test out other cards, but I've been thinking of finding a spot for Drakuseth. Far as Grave Titan goes I find his ability to create tokens very useful. When blitzed Grave is 5 mana for 4 2/2 zombies, attack with a 6/6 deathtouch, and draw a card. The tokens do a great job of creating a board presence of chump blockers. I found when first playing Henzie that lack of board presence could be an issue, due to blitzed creatures being sac'd. All the tokens in the deck can also have a big payoff with Pathbreaker Ibex which has won me a ton of games in the deck. Or can be great for drawing with Toski, Bearer of Secrets. Dusk Mangler does look like it could do some work, making each opponent sac, discard and take dmg looks like a very good ability, I'm surprised that I've never seen it before. I'll have to playtest it and see how it performs. I'm starting to come around on Sneak Attack as a wincon. I'm going to find a spot for it in the deck and see how it does.

Obviously this just happened to me.

I'm sitting in my bedroom playing my Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm deck to see if some swaps make sense after a few games.

Happened to get Wrathful Red Dragon out with a token copy of it. Interesting. So now whenever a Dragon I control is dealt damage, I'll have two WRD triggers. For example, if one Dragon is dealt 3 damage, both WRDs will see this and dish out 3 and 3. So I can nail two non-Dragon targets for 3 each, or hit the same target for a combined total of six.

Nice.

A few turns later I cast Monster Manual and dropped Drakuseth, Maw of Flames. Token ETB and, thanks to Dragon Tempest, they both have haste.

Now, if I were to hit Drak with Tempest, he takes 5 damage as I have 5 Dragons. Both WRDs see this and will now allow me to expand that 5 into 10.

I can have the token also be dealt 5 from Tempest as they entered the battlefield at the same time, so Tempest sees both together.

  • Yes, and no. It matters how you stack things. When Drakuseth ETB, I have two triggers go on the stack. One is Miirym and one is Tempest. If I order them to resolve Miirym first, she creates a token copy of Drak. That token ETB and immediately triggers Tempest. So Tempest resolved for the token first, which sees 5 total Dragons. Then, down the chain, OG Drak is left waiting to resolve. Only now he too sees five Dragons, as well. So while it is true that they DO NOT ETB together, it is equally true that they do in fact both see 5 Dragons.

I digress.

So while I could ping Drak and the token for 5 each, and double each to 10 thanks to two WRDs, and dish out 5+5+5+5 or 20 total damage, I have something a bit more spicy.

If instead, I move to combat and swing with the two Drakuseth, Maw of Flame, I can have the following occur:

  • OG deals 4 damage to OG WRD
  • OG deals 3 damage to itself
  • OG deals 3 damage to the token

  • Tokenseth deals 4 damage to token WRD

  • Token deals 3 damage to OGseth
  • Token deals 3 damage to itselfth

Now, both Drakuseth have 6 damage marked upon them, and both WRD have 4 damage marked on them. Everyone survives with 1 point left.

  • WRD sees itself take 4
  • OG deals 4
  • Token WRD sees OG take 4
  • Token deals 4
  • WRD sees Token take 4
  • OG deals 4
  • Token sees itself take 4
  • Token deals 4
  • OG sees Drak take 3 from itself
  • OG deals 3
  • Token sees Drak take 3 from itself
  • Token deals 3
  • OG sees Drak take 3 from token Drak
  • OG deals 3
  • Token sees Drak take 3 from token Drak
  • Token deals 3

(ugh)

  • OG sees token Drak take 3 from OG Drak
  • OG deals 3
  • Token sees token Drak take 3 from itself
  • OG deals 3
  • Token WRD sees token Drak take 3 from OG Drak
  • Token deals 3
  • Token WRD sees token Drak take 3 from itself
  • Token deals 3

In total, 40 damage

Nasty

So yeah, Wrathful Red Dragon + Drakuseth, Maw of Flames in a Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm deck is disgusting.

Fair, but if i'm doing that i'd almost be better off playing Grim Monolith as it'll accelerate me even faster, and I can untap it on the off turns when I don't need the mana. However, I like the fact that it taps for colored as my spells in this deck often tap for multiple colored pips. I'm actually leaning more towards Vexing Puzzlebox as it'll give me my colored mana as well as a fetch.

And in terms of being less threatening late game, this deck is honestly threatening the whole game. It just starts really quickly so it's hard to stop. There are very few times where dropping a Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Scourge of the Throne, etc. with haste and doubled power/toughness isn't scary. That's why this deck works so well. It doesn't matter the turn. It just keeps going. If they remove one card I play another. If I need I can draw more cards and keep fighting. It's a really well tuned and consistent deck, and now that i'm playing in several different playgroups, some with board wipes, some with single target removal, and all with different playstyles and decks, I can confirm it works everywhere, regardless of the meta.

Nice deck! I have a deck that does a similar thing in Malcolm & Akiri. But black also has a lot of fun toys :). I got some cards here that you could consider:

  • Indomitable Creativity: trade in your tokens for something more valuable, while also chaos warping (kinda) a few of your opponent’s expensive threats.
  • Martyr's Bond: great control option if that’s a thing you’re after
  • Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast: diverse card that can be nice if your deck is able to protect planeswalkers. But likely your creatures will be going sideways most of the time…
  • Hidden Stockpile: nice utility card that can give you more bodies to attack with. Perhaps not good enough given your commander doesn't work with tokens...
  • Tamiyo's Journal: did you say clues :)?
  • Herald of Anguish: I love this card and am sad I have no home for it yet. Would be great in this list I think.

For bombs with attack triggers you could consider Balefire Dragon, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and Etali, Primal Storm.

Hope you like some of them!
