Hymn to Tourach


Target player discards two cards at random.

How about a The Rack (but it's only one target), a Skullcage and a Nezumi Shortfang  Flip for added damage based on hand size? And a good old Hymn to Tourach to replace one of the other discard cards.

Azoth2099 on Tergrid Sac Discard Draw help please

Ok, so here's a few top picks (imho) for Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip.

Oppression, Liliana, Waker of the Dead, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Living Death, Delirium Skeins, Innocent Blood, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Words of Waste, Smokestack, Sword of Feast and Famine & Chains of Mephistopheles (just proxy it lol)

There's also a lot of cheaper options that are just as synergistic like Plaguecrafter, Demon's Disciple, Raven's Crime, Hymn to Tourach, Mind Twist, Mind Shatter, Mind Slash & Sadistic Hypnotist.

Outside of the synergy pieces, I'd recommend replacing some of those low-power pieces like Bad Deal & Inevitable End with value pieces like Dark Ritual & Vampiric Tutor for greater consistency.

hey there darklight90 , thnks for the advice , i appreciate it alot!.

I been watching an testing your deck , its awesome. I remember wondering if the deck would be better with other type of spells like dicard, but i ended up only using reanimate type spells only, to make the deck quicker. I always felt that if i start with a hand with no reanimate chance, it would be a loss. ive seen people using Hymn to Tourach as a defensive sepll. The most optimal woul be using dicard spells that can be used with me or with the oponent, like you do.

Thoughtseize is an awesome card, sadly i dont have it, thats why im using Cabal Therapy. i need to get some copies of it, but is too expensive T_T

Love how the Lotus Petal interact with the deck!.

Collective Brutality its another interesting card, so many uses!

ChocolatePuma on MBC: 8-Rack

Icbrgr The 8-rack I had set up was for Legacy and ran almost no creatures, so having multiple copies of The Rack, Shrieking Affliction and Liliana's Caress on the board ended games QUICK. Ideally, my opening hand would have a couple of Dark Rituals, which would lead into Liliana's Caress, and then a bunch of discard cards, ending in my opponent losing close to half their life total on turn one. Hymn to Tourach is quite demoralizing to your opponent too, I would recommend it.

Heya Ender. I've always had a special place in my heart for a good Rack Deck. Used to play them back in the day with Hymn to Tourach and Mind Twist. I like the concept of having the Hand disruption and making people suffer for it, lol. I also have a black modern deck that features discard and control with a lot of the same elements as you have here. i.e. Dauthi Voidwalker. I have been thinking lately that I should change it up and your deck has inspired me a bit. I'll toy around with some ideas. I have a few thought. Card draw is always an essential part of the game, so I'd add some Silent Clearings and remove the Concealed Courtyards if I could. Also, Liliana of the Veil, was and still is a bad beatch. I like the sideboard lockdown options along with Karn, that seems like a pretty solid plan. 4 Solitude seems like a bit much, you don't have a whole lot of white cards to exile here to make it free, and you also have the march which sometimes also requires a white card in hand, so maybe lean into some other form of control here, like Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, Damn, Sheoldred's Edict. 4 Ephemerate seems awkward here too, I'm guessing that is for protecting your creatures from removal? Not sure how necessary that is, but Anyway, just some thoughts. Like I said, I like the build and I'm interested to hear how it works for you! Good Luck!

DreadKhan on Competitive dimir faeries- sideboard help!

Glad I could help! Baleful Strix is a very good stand alone card IMHO, people have tried to run stuff like Fallen Shinobi in Dimir Faeries to good effect, so I think you could justify using Strix, it's replaces itself and can kill something big. Palantir of Orthanc is another mainboard card that is less likely to get banned than The One Ring, it can also help you out, and can get in some damage, I think it's lower budget too.

Most of your sideboard seems reasonable, you have answers to a variety of decks in there. If you are adjusting the sideboard, you might want something like Thoughtseize to deal with fast combo decks that run counters, Thoughtseize can dig out most cards if you have it in your opening hand, and you can then hit the discarded card with Surgical Extraction to remove a combo piece from anywhere but the battlefield, which can make some decks suck. Hymn to Tourach is hard to cast, but if you think you can cast it turn 2 if you have it in your opener and you will be going first that game you could sideboard it in, it's an incredibly hostile card if it hits early, but it can whiff. You might want a board wipe if your board isn't big/fast enough, I run Damnation, not sure if there is better.

Unfortunately Hymn to Tourach isn't Modern legal (something about before 8th editon it didn't exist and Modern reprint sets don't count), so Wrench Mind went back into Main Board. Got some Kozileks for side board and some Funeral Charms in main now.

Sounds like your friend has great taste, CrunchyDragon!

Thanks to your advicr I'm going to swap in a playset of Hymn to Tourach to replace Wrench Mind, and also got a playset of Funeral Charm and Inquisition of Kozilek I plan to play around with between mainboard and side
