Flayer of the Hatebound Discussion

Durkle on Manaless Dredge

Hey there. Fellow Manaless Dredge dabbler here. What's your reasoning for sticking with Flayer of the Hatebound over Lotleth Giant ? It's a small thing, but it seems like a pretty clear upgrade to me. I suppose that Flayer can target creatures if something is preventing you from going face, but that seems... narrow. Lotleth Giant being a black creature to exile to an Ichorid to squeeze final points of damage has been somewhat relevant for me. It also requires fewer casts of Dread Return to be lethal.

Idk. It's small, I just wanted to know if you have some reason for keeping Flayer that I haven't thought of.

Also, my local meta has quite a bit of D&T in it, so running a single Dakmor Salvage in the board has been pretty clutch to keep Thalia from blanking every spell lol. Again, small thing, just wanted to share the tech.

I'd also like to second Flayer of the Hatebound . With a sac outlet and Marchesa it's 36 damage every round in a 4 player game. If the sac outlet is Goblin Bombardment, it's 44 damage. If you have Ogre Battledriver out, it's 52 damage. Both is 60 damage. That's ANY target (including yourself when needed) in small increments.

I'm having trouble figuring out which six drop to pull for Bolas's Citadel . I was thinking Flayer of the Hatebound because it does the same thing as Warstorm Surge but it's such a powerful effect in this kind of reanimatior build I couldn't bring myself to do it, and all of the other six drops are just the same. I pulled a cinder barrens but i dont think pulling a land is the answer here, it has a pretty top heavy mana curve with now only 35 lands and like 8 six drops.

Please throw me an upvote if you like it regardless and thanks for your help!

Deadpoo111 Just found out last night that Flayer of the Hatebound does not actually get the tigger off if you cast a creature from grave with Chainer, Nightmare Adept . The creature technically goes onto the stack and enters the field from there, not from the graveyard directly.

Given that, Flayer loses a good bit of use in my mind, because it'd be much much harder to guarantee it'll be out alongside something like Reanimate or Rise of the Dark Realms . Shame, because he's pretty darn powerful otherwise.

+1 for the fleetwood mac reference! Use Flayer of the Hatebound

My Flayer of the Hatebound deck is crying tears of fire.

What are the chances of Careful Study being printed in a modern legal set?

Also, what i noticed about Flayer of the Hatebound is that madness reads "discard it into exile" so playing from graveyards like Flayer says won't trigger with madness
