Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

4 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I was moving to my new place.. Finally could unpack cards and get back to tunning this deck :) (Unfortunately thanks to Covid situation here, won't be able to play it anytime soon :()

Drolas , thanks for your comment. The Neoform combo is interesting, I will get the card soon from my friend and will be able to try.

In the meantime, I have removed what is now placed in sideboard and added. Going MOAR creatures.

vorpalaxe on Monoblack Infect [Competitive/Primer]

I love what you are doing here. here is what i am thinking after looking at it for 5 min. +4 Ichorclaw Myr -4 Phyrexian Vatmother -2 Raven's Crime -4 Mazemind Tome +2 Shadowspear +2 Infiltration Lens +2 Demonic Embrace. anyway dont take me too seriously. I just started brewing a mono green infect but im not feeling it. I have a red deck and a black vampire deck. really happy with those. ill post a link. for this deck i was thinking you have too much discard in the mainboard. that is why id say take out raven's crime. if you want the option of discarding lands late game, even though infect has no late game lol, then i like Demonic Embrace because it can finish an opponent. Raven's crime is useless to recast if they have no cards. I see dragon's claw in the sideboard. I generally advise against that unless you are also red. personally, I have duress in the sideboard for my black deck. I use Cry of Contrition in the main deck. mostly for budget purposes but I find that it is an excellent card to play on turn three or four. if it plays right, they could discard two powerful cards. against burn, for example, it does not matter which cards they discard.

match_lighter on Behold, Blessed Perfection: Mono Black Infect

1 year ago

'Tis indeed blessed perfection, looks solid! I am wondering why you play Vicious Rumors though, what is it contributing to your deck? It is very intriguing. Might you consider a Shizo, Death's Storehouse ? The storehouse provides near unblockability for the low low price of playing an honorary swamp. You might also consider Plague Myr a line like turn two myr into turn three Phyrexian Vatmother should send your opponent cowering in fear.

I am quite intrigued by your deck, carry on brewing fellow Phyrexian.

Hi itachi45 !

First of all, thanks for your comment !

I've always liked Infect but never was a big fan of the usual aggro/combo variant. So i played a Mono Black style since a long time because i love Phyrexian Crusader and think it can be a very efficient win-con in Modern. B/G should be the way to go but i'm pretty sure a Rakdos variant could have decent results : casting Anger of the Gods when you have a Crusader on the board is pretty enjoyable and Blood Moon is still a thing in Modern.

I have only play-tested the deck on MTGO for now and made some choices :

I will still give a go to different things on MTGO and refine the deck to try to find the best options ! I usually play another deck in FNM but if my attempts are conclusives i will try it IRL ;)

(Sorry if my english isn't perfect, i'm french^^)

electromancer on Varolz, a Scavenging Infection

3 years ago

I really like this idea, but it doesn't look like most infect creatures work with Varolz too well. For Varolz to get max value, you want creatures well above the power curve.

Just my opinion but here are the infect creatures I'd definitely keep/add:
Putrefax
Viridian Corrupter
Phyrexian Hydra
Phyrexian Crusader
Phyrexian Vatmother (add)
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (add)

A lot of your other infect creatures are probably just going to draw more attention than they're worth. Also check out Force of Savagery and Sheltering Ancient for cheap +1/+1 counters.

KoiBoy on Hapatra

3 years ago

A few thoughts to go over!

Ammit Eternal will net you snakes very quickly as your opponents cast spells. If anybody is left open, (Or you use your Whispersilk Cloak/Rogues Passage) you can extend that engine's lifespan.

Skinrender only triggers Hapatra once, but is solid removal.

Flesh-Eater Imp is a solid flying infecter that explodes a win if you have snakes to feed. Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Hydra, Phyrexian Vatmother are cheap solid infect sources too. Grafted Exoskeleton and Glistening Oil turn any of your creatures into surprise infect threats. I know its not budget, but Inkmoth Nexus is going to do a LOT of work for you.

Soul Snuffers will flood your field with tokens, even if you kill your own snakes they replace themselves. Carnifex Demon works along the same line of thought.

Diabolic Intent is not a budget choice right now, but with a Battlebond release it may drop into range. Speaking of Battlebond... Generous Patron is going to make you swim in card draw.

Viridian Longbow You've never seen a snake shoot a bow, but they're deadly little archers. Thornbite Staff too.

Your land base isn't bad, but could be better in my opinion by focusing harder on Basics. In addition to making you more resilient to non basic hate/punish, two color doesn't get color starved easily. Especially if you to focus on basic ramp like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and other similar that search Any Basic Land. Drop the majority of your lands that enter tapped with little to no other benefit. Gaining 1 life or a 0/1 plant aren't going to win you the day, and will often slow your plan painfully. Nykthos is questionable. Being so evenly split in mana costs plus so much of the deck's presence being token based, I wonder how often it will actually run positive on devotion.

Coward_Token on Grixis!Zedruu

3 years ago

(I would add a proper community card but that feature seems to be malfunctioning right now.)

Farly straightforward, this card would mostly be Zedruu the Greathearted (although a different character, not simply her gone evil or something) with a casting cost of and an activation cost of . In EDH, this could lead to some fun usage of cards like the following:

(I realize you can basically already do this with any Grixis commander + e.g. Bazaar Trader, but that's a bit less straightforward.)

I'm unsure what would be suitable for its upkeep ability. Just copying Zedruu's straight off isn't too inappropriate, as drawing is certainly associated with black and life gain isn't too far out either, but that's kinda boring. Replacing the life gain with something negative towards opponents like milling, discard or plain life loss proportional to the amount of gifted permanent could be one option that's more in line with the color change (thought the negative effects would probably targeted in order to preserve some political potential). Putting a +1/+1 counter per gift on Zedruu the Grixishearted to take advantage of commander damage could also work (especially when combined with auras like Herald of Torment), in which case you could also change power/toughness from the original's 2/4 to 4/2 to signal greater aggression.

For the sake of flavor its subtype would be Horse Djinn, with the artwork depicting a djinn with a mare's head, wearing a mouth-covering veil.

Feedback would be welcome, especially on ways to make Grixis!Zedruu more distinct from the original while still fulfilling the basic function of giving out torturous black cards, in addition to the blue and red ones they both share.

(A version containing green could also be made for the sake of giving that color a chance to show off its painful cards, in which case the creature in question should probably have monkey paws.)
