Postmortem Lunge Discussion

Absolutely! It actually does exceedingly well. The decks usually function at a tournament level of consistency with 4 CoCos and 4 of another spell, albeit Finale of Devastation , Eldritch Evolution , Postmortem Lunge , or whatever it is. Even though it is riskier to add in 4 more spells with the wishes, it is still so worth it to have them in the deck. The Glittering Wish es are obviously core, and win the game whenever they come around. Sure, a Collected Company could hit a Wish and fizzle, but it could also do the same with any of my remaining lands, or the other 3 CoCos. You gotta spend money if you wanna make money!

Two-brid mana is inherently balanced. It takes work and building around it to be able to pay instead of , but it also takes work to be able to pay . The two-brid cards available are pretty bad outside of mono color(and even then, it tends to be Spectral Procession in Modern and Beseech the Queen in EDH that are the only ones that see play) for that reason. However, if new cards were printed, there would be no real problem outside of some annoying people complaining about color pie breaks online.

For example, Lightning Bolt but twobrid. Giving ALL colors access to Lightning Strike isn't broken at all. Does it help decks like Tron or Monoblue who typically have problems removing creatures? Yep. But will it break any format? Most definitely not. Well, it will make Modern Burn and Pioneer Red Aggro lists a lot better in this specific case.

Compare this to . You are almost always paying life instead of the mana cost. You will only ever not pay life in very specific situations. In fact, if you pay mana for it when you have enough life, people question you. They wonder what the hell you are doing in your deck. Phyrexian mana is like having a multicolored Simian Spirit Guide in your hand at all times, except it costs 2 life. It's raw, unfettered mana advantage, which quickly and easily turns into advantage in the action economy.

Also, take a look at the banned Phyrexian mana cards. And the playable ones. Gitaxian Probe is Peek , which is basically unplayable. Mental Misstep would be unplayable if it cost instead of . Gut Shot , Postmortem Lunge , Mutagenic Growth , Dismember are all horrible if they didn't have the Phyrexian mana attached. It's the fact that they cost the generic cost only that makes them good. Dismember is a 1-mana spell, that costs a bit more later on if you have mana to spare but not the life. All the 1 mana Phyrexian Mana cards are actually zero mana.

I thought at least 'Music: the loungening' might be subtle enough, but then again that's probably more of a name for an album.

Because I like the 'lounge' pun here's 2 more:

'Postmortem Lounge' Postmortem Lunge

'Lounge into Darkness' Plunge into Darkness

Sadly not as iconic as I'd like them to be

It's ok if you don't like those either, but they're really fun to come up with xD

Vexing Devil is really funny with cards like Postmortem Lunge and Brought Back.

Sorry for the double post...

After looking again, through the lens of EDH, Haste with that ability is absolutely terrifying, bordering on OP. You have a keyword soup, that also gives you a FREE AND BETTER Postmortem Lunge, and then an activated ability, which can activated the turn she is played because Haste, that guarantees you have at least one target from yourself AND each opponent's decks.

We are talking massive damage and game changing potential on turn 4/5 WITHOUT the possibility of ramp from .

Just run no other creatures in your deck besides Blightsteel Colossus, and then anything you get from your opponents is just icing on the cake.

I'm not sure how to balance this, and I do like the effect, but I do think it needs some balancing.

Canopy Cover and Ranger's Guile are both pretty cheap additional protection. also, Postmortem Lunge is a great card to bring back a glistner elf that got killed early which can set you up for some surprise attacks for the win. I believe it is legal in modern, though not sure

My best advice is to focus this deck more and cut some of your 1-of copies to add more consistency to your deck...You seem to be at 59 cards here...and the deck description doesn't really match the decklist...and the deck is kinda all over the place making it tough to give you constructive criticism.

If you want a persist/undying theme maybe consider Immortal Servitude and Reanimate a couple Vexing Devils?... Postmortem Lunge to compliment your flayer hatebound?
