Plumb the Forbidden Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions killer_eye! Yeah Scute Swarm has definitely been great.

I used to run a lot of those big graveyard-based cards like Boneyard Wurm , Splinterfright , Spider Spawning but eventually cut most of them for reasons similar to the Worm Harvest one. Boneyard Mycodrax was one of those but I totally forgot that it also has a graveyard ability, so it could be interesting. Bonehoard is a like a reverse Nighthowler , definitely usuable.

Plumb the Forbidden is pretty good too.

Hi! Hogaak player here, I found your list as I search for other decklist to look for some techs. I adopted scute swarm tech and I’m really impressed on how easy to support it specially a topdeck scute swarm after a boardwipe feels so good and it’s so easy to rebuild from there.

The description here re. worm harvest and world shaper convinced me to totally drop them. I’m constantly looking for what cards to cut from my list and your reasoning for both cards are spot-on.

As for suggestion maybe: Bonehoard (extra big creature), Boneyard Mycodrax (another big creature with graveyard ability), Plumb the Forbidden (card draw)

Dunno where they would fit, but I've had a great time in Arena with Sedgemoor Witch and Plumb the Forbidden . Plumb acts like a self board wipe to trigger blood artist procs and Sedgemoor fills your board right back up.

What about using Plumb the Forbidden .

Alhammarret's Archive would be another great addition and Trudge Garden works so well with these little lifegain-effects.

The Elder Dragon Beledros Witherbloom would be a blast in this one

cleandeceit: I appreciate the suggestion! I need to revamp this deck, stay tuned.

I'll likely be cutting Seshiro anyway, but probably for a different set of Strixhaven/MH2 spells ( Smell Fear , Persist , Culling Ritual , Plumb the Forbidden , Rushed Rebirth , etc). This deck needs a complete rebuild :)

Blex certainly isn't bad though!

MonoGreenMagnus on if you sacrifice a creature …

So I was thinking Lolth, Spider Queen passive says if you creature control dies put a loyalty counter on her. So if you had like 8 pest tokens then you sacrifice them with say Plumb the Forbidden does sacrifice them count as them dying.

You can survive this, because you get to choose the order that the Blood Artist triggers and Plumb the Forbidden copies go onto the stack.

When you sacrifice creatures as an additional cost to cast Plumb the Forbidden, the reflexive trigger in its first ability ("When you do...") and Blood Artist's ability trigger at the same time. Since the triggers are trying to go onto the stack at the same time and you control them both, you can put them onto the stack in the order of your choice. In your example, you would want to arrange the Blood Artist triggers on top and the copy-making trigger from Plumb on the bottom.

The board is as follows:

I have 2 life. I have a Blood Artist and two creature tokens in play.

I cast Plumb the Forbidden and sac both my creature tokens to it's additional cost.

How is the stack ordered in this scenario? Does Blood Artist resolve first keeping me alive? Or do the copies resolve first killing me?
