Greed Discussion

TypicalTimmy on How to build better decks

5 days ago

I know The Professor has some videos up. On the road so I can't link them now.

Also posting because interesting thread is interesting.

What I can say is this: I generally go for 34 - 38 lands depending on curve, and I always do 8x stones.

  • Sol Ring
  • Thought Vessel
  • Arcane Signet
  • Mindstone
  • Fellwar Stone

The next three depend on how many colors I run. If I am running a Guild deck, such as Rakdos, I'll do;

  • Rakdos Signet
  • Manalith
  • Commander's Sphere

If I am running a Shard it Wedge, like Esper, I'll do;

  • Orzhov Signet
  • Dimir Signet
  • Azorius Signet

I also try to get 5 - 7 draw engines. I want permanents that draw on triggers, such as Garruk's Packleader and Greed . I prefer repeatability over one-time-use like Harmonize . Another great overlooked one is Thopter Spy Network . I've seen many players forget about the second half, myself included.

I also look for about 6 - 8 disruptions. This could be anything from a Planeswalker that can kill a target, a Path to Exile , or even just boardwipes such as Damnation .

I try to avoid cards that benefit my opponent at all costs, such as Anvil of Bogardan , but that's just my style. Ultimately this is a game to be won. I try to limit my aid to others as much as possible, so that politics are stronger when needed.

This means I have accounted for 53 - 61 cards accounted for in all decks. Minus the Commander, this leaves 46 - 38 cards left over to find synergy and make combos with.

But that's just how I play.

Font of Agonies is great synergy with Vona, Vilis, Hatred, Silent Clearing: 1B kill any creature is pretty awesome. I see you great recursion with Sun Titan + Hall of Heliod's Generosity . Might I suggest Greed like abilities also.

I see you have Thalia's Lancers in the maybe board. Let me convince you! It tutors for any Legendary (I count 14) and is also a Knight!

I didn't think to mention Greed , which I usually include in most black decks. Good call there. That is a solid card draw option.

Awesome, thanks.

I’ve added in Greed and Filigree Fracture too along with Words of Wilding for an alt win con with an altar And lilli + blood artist

I think I may actually have a putrefy laying around somewhere and a friend of mine has a few old attrition’s I might be able to trade with him

Yea Sensei's Divining Top is one I really need to add. The combo also works with Necropotence and with Greed while K'rrik is out. Thanks for the advice.

i see that you heavily focus on gaining life in your deck, but don't utilise it a lot (except for having a ton of life). the only cards that benefit from you having/gaining much life are, as far as i can see Resplendent Angel , Ajani's Pridemate , Dawn of Hope , Storm Herd and Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

if you really want to play around gaining life/having a ton of it, i would recommend Sanguine Bond , Felidar Sovereign , Greed , Ambition's Cost , Night's Whisper , Defiant Bloodlord , Phyrexian Arena , Epicure of Blood and/or Exquisite Blood .

remember that life is a resource in this game. just gaining a lot of it makes it harder for you to lose the game, yes, but you should also trie to use it to win the game.

if you are looking for any other kind of inspiration, feel free to check out my kaalia deck:

Rabid_Wombat, I am sorry that I need to ask, but how was the original art for Greed racist? Are you confusing it with the artwork for Invoke Prejudice ?
