Fetid Imp Discussion

mobizque on <20$ Undying demons

I'm building a similar deck with Demon of Catastrophes and Feaster of Fools (which you might consider--with Devour 2 it can get big, and with Convoke it can come out as early as turn 3).

Fetid Imp seems weak here. Your demons will dominate the sky, so you might consider more sacrificial creatures like Festering Mummy or Undead Augur .

All that said, I'm putting Tragic Slip in my deck. It's definitely > the Dismember I'm running.

Well, if you're going with mainly milling and control, try to stick with mainly cards that do that. Thought Collapse is another counter spell with mill. Manic Scribe is another good card. Cards you have such as Induced Amnesia , Platinum Emperion , Howling Golem , Giant Scorpion , and Fetid Imp probably aren't as useful as other cards could be.

I would add 2 more Hateful Eidolon I run it and it's just a monster of a card. Even one or two payoffs early can swing the game.

If you ever run Fetid Imp again maybe you can sub in Lurrus of the Dream-Den for either Kearvek or Gray. In addition to recurring your enchantments for the spirit. You can recur your deathtouch flyer, which would be strong.

I don't think Thought Distortion belongs in this deck. It's meant to be used mostly as a sideboard card, possibly to be fetched with something like Fae of Wishes to really hit a hard on a control player that has a hand full of good stuff. In this deck, your opponent will be mostly empty-handed by the time you cast it. You will maybe make them discard 1 or 2 cards at best, if you're lucky.

Fetid Imp is pretty weak and taxes you 1 mana just to remain useful. If you really want a deathtouch creature, you could use Mire Triton instead, but if I was you I would use Yarok's Fenlurker instead, a typical 2 drop in any discard deck, and it would fuel your devotion better for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Kaervek, the Spiteful is an interesting addition, but since he's not always useful and is legendary, I would only run a single copy, maybe 2 if you really like him. Would kill a Yarok's Fenlurker if you decide to use some too.

Mire's Grasp and Dead Weight would work really well with Hateful Eidolon, could be an worthwhile addition. Btw, since you already run those as creature removal, you could swap some Grasp of Darkness for Eliminate so that you can also hit planeswalkers.

You should also run a few Castle Locthwain, no real reasons not to tbh.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful, cheers!

Okay. I see how you do. But that doesn't mean I can't critique.

Deathtouchers with big butts would be a lot of fun. For example: Giant Scorpion is at least a 3-of, and Xathrid Gorgon is a lot of fun to toy with. Fetid Imp x4 and Deathgaze Cockatrice x2-3.

For more info on what else to suggest I'd like a little more info on your meta: what decks do you regularly play against?

With hydras you will want a lot of ramp so of course Sol Ring but then look at the key runes and signets Golgari Signet Orzhov Keyrune. I would look to replace Druid of the Cowl with better options like Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves. Terramorphic Expanse and Command Tower will help with color fixing. Black Market is great ramp in black.

For the infect you could add Lost Leonin Glistener Elf or to fit on theme Phyrexian Hydra

I'm a big fan of running a few board wipes so Wrath of God and Damnation

Suggested cuts Retreat to Hagra Ranger's Guile Malakir Bloodwitch Fetid Imp

Here are some deathtouch blockers, just in case you feel defense should be a focus too:
