RambIe on Best Play I Have Seen …

1 week ago

granted this year is only 12 days so far
but in last Saturdays games my buddy Silverbutters made one of the most epic plays!!!
faced off against a Edgar Markov deck poor Silverbutters was taking an onslaught of flying lifelinking vampires to the face every turn!!
but when Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose hit the board Silverbutters immediately recognized the threat
his opponent moved to combat and swung all out for the win.
Silverbutters finally released his tight grip and dropped Chaos Warp targeting Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose
Silverbutters could barely contain his laughter as his opponent freaked out.
after a about 10 mins of arguing and laughter Chaos Warp finally resolved
Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose was placed into the deck, the deck was shuffled, then passed to Silverbutters to be cut, then the top card was flipped and

@gsingh you are right, need to take that out, I only have Ghen to get rid of it, so it's of no use.

@seshiro_of_the_orochi I had Accursed Witch  Flip in the deck in an earlier version, the other one is pretty nice, it could find me Overwhelming Splendor and attach it to a player for nothing. very good thinking, thank you.

Consider adding a one of Overwhelming Splendor. Also, maybe add Obzedat, Ghost Council.

Deadshot5459, thanks for the suggestion, but Curse of Fool's Wisdom is not legal in modern. Even if it was, it is substantially worse than Overwhelming Splendor and even Curse of Thirst when it comes to closing out the game. It could certainly be built around and I actually have a deck (Gluttonous Downfall) that uses Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, and sometimes Kederekt Parasite to do exactly what you're suggesting. To do the same thing here, I'd pretty much have to redesign the entire core of the deck and probably switch from orzhov to dimir. After all, Whispering Madness is usually better than Fatal Lore while also being modern legal.

Wassy on Clerics pray for demons (BW)

Had a somewhat similar deck based on Scion of Darkness and Dark Supplicant but found it to be very clunky to play. The Scion was always destroyed and cost too many clerics to work regularly. Looking over your deck you are at least 1-2 lands short and I would increase Orzhov Basilica to 4 of to give you a pseudo extra land (on average every second game when you should see it). Academy Rector doesn't work in this deck, its a 4 drop creature with few sac outlets to grab 1 of 2 enchantments, one of which is a 4 drop in itself. I would just play 4 Rite of Belzenlok which ties in well with Rotlung Reanimator and Twilight Prophet. Doing that makes Overwhelming Splendor too expensive to cast which you can replace with an extra Cabal Therapy (I would consider replacing Cabal Therapy with Duress to protect your demons/key clerics/general board position unless you know what decks you will be up against most of the time).

I recently revisited my deck after Rite of Belzenlok and Archfiend's Vessel which I think has given a more reliable deck. Moved the focus to a wider range of demon threats which I think has helped. Every demon has it's day if you want to check it out.

  • Thats fair some people hate those combos, id highly recommend 4 or 0 copies. 2/60 cards and then 1/59 doesnt look like good odds.
  • 4x Dragonskull Summit 4x Isolated Chapel are great but they dont have subtypes so they are gonna be tapped a lot. Try some nnumber of "fast lands" {Blackcleave Cliffs , Concealed Courtyard,Inspiring Vantage)
  • Overwhelming Splendor and Curse of Death's Hold is also funny in this deck.

Wolfdemon2195 on solemnity combo (needs help)

Depending on your enchantment count Calix probably could be cut(could also be wrong play with it and try), you could also add the enchantresses to add a draw engine, as well other enchantment prison type elements to help avoid early game aggression like Propaganda, Ghostly Prison and Blind Obedience. also could I suggest Overwhelming Splendor :)
