Murderous Cut


Delve (Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for {1}.)

Destroy target creature.

PhyrexianPraetor Most of my instants and sorceries will be exiled so thunder raptor won’t deal as much damage as I would hope most of the time.

Delve cards are interesting but I don’t think most of them are good for this deck, at least this version of a slime against humanity deck since cards are already exiled before they enter the graveyard. Though I will still consider Murderous Cut as a possible addition.

Sword point diplomacy is a good suggestion but the problem with this deck is after all the combo pieces and slimes there’s only 4-6 open slots I can put in so I need them to cover a lot of bases hence invasion of ergamon card selection and ramp. But I have considered making this a Yorion, Sky Nomad deck so I might have space sword point later. Thanks for your suggestions!

Dylanbrickner good to hear! Good luck with the brewing. Some of my advice before was very centric on assuming this was an aggro build, so here’s some general/generic tips on building a more midrange deck:

  • Midrange decks generally value card quality above anything else - they aim to have a LOT of interaction and then a very small amount of dangerous threats, so normally around 14-16 creatures (all being high impact) in a deck.

  • Mono-Green will have a hard time running enough density of useful interaction to stall the game out in this way. You might want to consider adding either White or Black to the deck, as either of those colours have a ton of interactive spells that would easily allow your deck to thrive in a midrange environment (examples: Fatal Push, Infernal Grasp, Murderous Cut, Inquisition of Kozilek, Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, Path to Exile, Fateful Absence, Condemn, Dromoka's Command).

  • If you’re playing midrange, you have a lot less room for creatures (as 14-16 creatures are what these decks typically run). So, you want them to all have high impact. Some suggestions to consider include: Thragtusk (stalls the game, replaces itself), and Deathmist Raptor (good stats, late game they can be returned back to the battlefield when you draw additional copies).

  • The game is going to go long enough where running a Companion has a lot more value, if you can justify one. Kaheera, the Orphanguard fits your deck perfectly and should be a companion here.

Cool, for a pure mill $50 list I'd be doing something like this (all prices from Card Kingdom):

Comes to $49.95 total.

Hey thanks again for your comments on my primer :)

A few suggestions I have:

  1. Replace 2 mana enablers with weak/no abilities (such as Dimir Infiltrator and Gurmag Swiftwing) with 1 mana enablers (like Gudul Lurker) or stronger 2 mana enablers (i.e., Baleful Strix, Augury Owl).

  2. Replace 3 mana ramp (like Basalt Monolith, Dimir Locket) with 2 mana ramp (i.e., Dimir Signet or Talisman of Dominance).

  3. Soft permission spells such as Spell Pierce and Mana Leak are usually weak in budget/lower-powered pods because the games go longer. Some potential replacements could be Misdirection, Drown in the Loch.

  4. Cancel, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Perplex, Connive / Concoct and Rite of Undoing seem quite weak to me. Some budget-friendly cards I like that you might want to play are Curtains' Call, Portent, Far / Away, Discovery / Dispersal, Submerge, and Murderous Cut.

Good luck in your tournament!

Stardragon on Spare a Coin for a …

I'm making a kill steal creature deck with Athreos, Shroud-Veiled as the commander. Is there any cards that will allow me to put more than one coin counter on more than one creature at the end of each of my turns? Proliferate won't help me here, and neither will Blink nor Flicker since it's effect is not an etb effect. Plus any good instant kill not exile spells are also appreciated

Kill spells in my deck already Doom Blade

Drag to the Underworld

Go for the Throat

Hero's Downfall

Infernal Grasp

Nordlys on I'll have the Full Rack with a Side of Rats Please

Hi there! How is it going? I know this deck was uploaded many years ago, but since it says it was updated two weeks ago from now, I'll drop a comment.

Even though it is a budget deck, you can still put one or two Liliana, Waker of the Dead since it is an economic card that does what you need.

Notes: - 21 lands seems too few for a deck that discards lands to Raven's Crime and also sacrifices lands to Smallpox - 3 copies of Murderous Cut seems too much since you won't be able to quickly drop 15 cards to your graveyard for it's delve. I really like the card, but the safest choice would be to play a singleton (only 1 copy) since you don't to see more than 1 in your hand. So maybe replace 2 copies of it for Fatal Push or Bloodchief's Thirst - Taking out all 8 racks for the whole rat pack would turn your discard cards kinda useless since you won't be getting any advantage out of your empty handed opponent (except for that single Nezumi Shortfang  Flip ). So maybe what you should for the second match is to take out the Smallpox and the Wrench Mind and also the Raven's Crime since you will prefer to discard those extra lands to Pack Rat instead of discarding them to Raven's.

What do you think of Path of Peril over Bontu's Last Reckoning: it helps you against most aggro and Lurrus Decks ?
Also since you don't have many cards to empty your own graveyard a 1-of Murderous Cut seems good, either main- or sideboard.
For the manabase: You can probably run 1x Fetid Heath over 1x Godless Shrine to cast the combination of Flagstones of Trokair + Smallpox more consistent on Turn 2.
