legendofa on Daemogoth Titan Pest Deck

3 months ago

Welcome to the club, Atomic_Spider!

First question: Are you building for Standard or Modern? I'm going to assume Modern, based on your card selections, and I'm going to further assume a fairly generous budget.

Better removal: Abrupt Decay , Maelstrom Pulse , Thoughtseize , Assassin's Trophy

The two main issues with Daemogoth Titan are a lack of evasion and a lack of protection. It's got a great stat/MV ratio, but it's vulnerable and can be chump blocked all day. So I suggest adding Rancor and Veil of Summer or Heroic Intervention to your list.

Look on this site and elsewhere for BG Midrange, since that's a reasonable fit for what I think you're trying to do. You can search decks by categories, known on here as hubs.

Okay, you have a plan. If you want to get this into Modern, how competitive do you want to be and how much money are you willing to spend?

For at least a couple of starting thoughts, Ivy Elemental is worse here than Endless One , and both of those are worse than Stonecoil Serpent .

You won't get the full effect of Mythos of Nethroi unless you have a Lotus Cobra out, so right now it's expensive creature removal with a conditional upside. Switch it for another Mortality Spear , Maelstrom Pulse , Abrupt Decay , or Assassin's Trophy , depending on your budget. If you add , consider Felidar Sovereign .

Conduit of Ruin only finds It That Betrays , Avenger of Zendikar , and Void Beckoner , and only Void Beckoner might have some use in your main strategy. Take those out and build a different deck around them.

I'm not worried about Vindicate , since Maelstrom Pulse has been in Modern since Alara, and I don't expect the land destruction option to make that much if a difference. (Thereby guaranteeing I get steamrolled by LD some day.) In particular, Legacy/Vintage has everything on the reserved list, which includes the original dual lands, Aluren , Academy Rector , Chains of Mephistopheles , Sylvan Library , Swords to Plowshares , Grim Monolith as some highlights, and anything banned in Modern-- Deathrite Shaman , Field of the Dead , Once Upon a Time , Cloudpost , and so on.

(4) Privileged Position protects all of your permanents Greater Auramancy only protects enchantments and is replaced by Sterling Grove

(5) honestly this could be Oblivion Ring , i previously played mone creatures making the convoke on Conclave Tribunal important

(6) having both isint necessary but it can save you in corner cases such as your oponat having Maelstrom Pulse

(7) Solitary Confinement is best played alongside Enchantress's Presence and Setessan Champion to fill your hand and discard extra copies or lands while digging for a win con, if your about to loose it can buy you time but only if you have a way to draw cards

(8) it gets back enchantments if your oponant has destroyed one, you could also use it to get back a Solitary Confinement that you have sacrificed

(9) Canopy Vista is a sometimes untapped forest for Utopia Sprawl but generally you wold want to enchant a basic forest, you could use a different forest + white land but canopy vista seems to do the best job besides Temple Garden

DemonDragonJ on Putrefy or Mortality Spear?

5 months ago

Erza420, I definitely have Assassin's Trophy in every deck that contains black and green, because of how powerful that card is.

shadow63, Maelstrom Pulse is a sorcery, and I am very fond of instants, plus, it is far less useful in a single format than it is in a "normal" format.

Took a look at the deck and I'd swap putrefy for morality spear. And I'd swap Mortify for Maelstrom Pulse

legendofa on Seasons' Approach: How the seasons go by...

Hey, a Turbofog deck! First couple things I see: in the Fog package, switch Haze of Pollen for Angelsong for a cheaper cycling card. Thwart the Enemy doesn't do anything that a straightforward Fog doesn't do for a third the cost; Thwart the Enemy is better for creature-on-creature combat. Even with the Seasons Past recursion, if you've been careful with your Fogs, pulling back a 1-mana fog and a 2-mana fog should be enough, especially since you only have two of them. If you're set on the 3-mana Fog, consider Sudden Spoiling .

For the removal package: Abrupt Decay is solid. Vraska's Contempt is a little more mana-hungry than I personally prefer, but I can respect it. I would switch it for something 3-mana, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Maelstrom Pulse for broader removal.

Win condition: I've never used Approach of the Second Sun personally, so I'm interested in that choice. There's an earlier suggestion about adding a backup win condition, and I agree with that. Something resilient and difficult to interact with. I see Dragonlord Dromoka in the maybe board, and I like Sigarda, Host of Herons , but those are questionably budget.

Other: Adding some ramp that comes down before turn 3 might help you reach your late game faster. I also like a small discard package; even a handful of Duress can preempt a lot of problems. Leyline of Sanctity has dropped in price a lot, and it's practically required if you see a lot of burn or 10-rack or anything like that.

So that's what I get out of my first pass over this deck. Use your Fogs carefully and use your life total as a cushion, and this could get some good results. More comments to come later.

legendofa: Quality should always be your guide. If you were using all 10 planeswalkers on a single (non-superfriends theme) like for example if they all pumped out tokens and then buffed them, that would be fine. But here you effectively have:

Looking at the planeswalkers, that's kind of what I see here. And don't get me wrong, repeatability is great. But you have to weigh that up against mana cost and frequency of repeatability.
