Hooded Blightfang

Creature — Snake


Whenever a creature you control with deathtouch attacks, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.

Whenever a creature you control with deathtouch deals damage toa planeswalker, destroy that planeswalker.

First off, I love this list +1

Second of all, this is really just personal preference, but I think that Hooded Blightfang Could be brought down to a 2-of or 3-of. The effect is great, but it just seems a little slow and clunky as a 4-of. I'd probably add in one or two of Nighthawk Scavenger or something similar. Again, I absolutely love the deck.

Hooded Blightfang and Fynn, the Fangbearer are must-haves if you plan to be playing mostly death touch creatures. They each make your creatures have more impact on their attacks.

Saryth, the Viper's Fang is great protection for your board while Chevill, Bane of Monsters can be a fun way to get card advantage.

Vraska, Swarm's Eminence creates tokens with death touch :)

Hooded Blightfang

Halana, Kessig Ranger

Thornbite is another pinger but even better since you can uptap when a creature dies.
Hooded Blightfang makes attacking with all your deathtouch creatures really hurt. I think Halana fits here if it can be stacked so that the creature gets deathtouch first then it does its damage to another creature.

Crow-Umbra, Thanks for all the tips! I was just building this deck by dismantling a bunch of precons I had so it’s not perfect but I just wanted to try Isshin as my commander. I went and got Aggravated Assault and switched out some of the cards you said. I’ll update the deck list when I get home. Don’t really know what to do with Hooded Blightfang, I feel like the just him getting to drain for 2 with Isshin out is good enough for now. I’ll continue to run it though, have already won some games and try to keep improving it!

Welcome to Tappedout and to Isshin brewing. In looking at your list I have some thoughts and potential suggestions. A few quick questions: Do you have a budget per card or total budget in mind? Is there a particular avenue of Isshin that you have in mind, I see that you mentioned multi-combats.

  • Your deck generally looks solid, but I think you creatures are what could use the most focus in terms of swaps. Stuff like Heliod, Megatron, Hooded Blightfang, Raiyuu, and Academy Manufactor are good, but don't fit this deck super well.

  • If you like Hooded Blightfang, I'd recommend adding some deathtouch anthems like Vault of the Archangel, Ankle Shanker, and/or Kaya, Geist Hunter to really take advantage of its ability. Otherwise, I think you could remove it.

  • If you like that GroupSlug style of play like Hooded Blightfang, I'd recommend checking out other stuff like Hellrider, Brutal Hordechief, Vicious Conquistador, or Infectious Horror, which aren't as narrow in focus to pull off like Blightfang.

  • I think you could probably swap Feed the Swarm for something like Dismantling Wave, Anguished Unmaking, or Vanishing Verse. Mardu has more options for enchantment removal than other color combos with Black in them where Feed the Swarm is one of their few options.

  • Lastly, these are not budget friendly, but are generally good cards for any Isshin strat. I'd recommend checking out Dolmen Gate, which will be getting another reprint in The List pretty soon when the LotR set drops, and Reconnaissance, which is like a pseudo-Vigilance anthem that can save your creatures from combat. This article details how Reconnaissance works a bit more.

I hope these suggestions are helpful. I've had a lot fun playing Isshin for the past year, and I hope you do too.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Hellbent Rats

I think you can go down one land and go mono-black since you have very few cards that cost more than 3 and only 1 card in your mainboard/sideboard that is red. Also, I'm not sure if Gnat Miser and hellbent is worth running in your deck. Gnat Miser only gets progressively worse as the game goes on. Maybe replace it with Rancid Rats (better blocker and ninjutsu enabler) and Ravenous Rats as both are more relevant late game. As it stands you only have two cards with Hellbent in your deck and almost no removal outside of Liliana and even then the removal is conditional. Having a tutor is nice, but I think it would be better if you had concrete removal spells for something your creatures might not be able to handle. Hooded Blightfang and Hero's Downfall are pretty good answers for planeswalkers and the former adds some utility for your deathtouch creatures. Eaten Alive and Flay Essence are decent options against indestructible creatures for the trade off of being slower. Hope this helps.

I've changed this deck up a lot and experimented with every colour combination. I think this is the best the deck has been. It can take down tier 1 decks. I'm close to adding Hooded Blightfang, but I'm not sure there's room. I want to limit the number of 3 drops.
