Priests of Norn

Creature — Cleric

Vigilance

Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)

toxicsunshine22 that strategy could definitely get some sneaky surprise wins with the enchant having flash. Some words of warning though:

  • Auras are generally super-risky to use, because if your creature gets killspelled, you’ve just lost 2 cards for the opponents 1. That resource disadvantage is often pretty disastrous, so you have to be able to reliably close-out a game before it becomes an issue. This is why Auras are pretty-much never seen in competitive modern play.

  • the enchant appears to have no other useful targets other than Priests of Norn. As you can’t reliably draw that card, there’s going to be loads of games where the enchant is uselessly stuck in your hand.

The new plan is to use Solid Footing to buff the heck outta Priests of Norn

Thank you for the detailed response! I used to have an Atraxa infect deck that also aimed to be maximally ideal within the infect gameplan. I lost the list a long time ago, but it utilized a lot of combat spells like Berserk, Might of Old Krosa, etc. to try to eliminate people as fast as possible. It didn't have a very good win rate, and I think your list is much better!

Scriptures is great if you're gameplan centers on one creature, but I think you need Atraxa and at least 1 creature with infect to start taking people out. You could consider adding Phyresis and/or Grafted Exoskeleton to make Atraxa both your source of infect and proliferation, which makes Scriptures much better. Both also allow you to give your praetors infect if needed. Since you're introducing a new source of infect, you could probably cut Priests of Norn for one. Otherwise, I can't think of anything that could need replacing. Love the list!

Sterling0528, thanks for commenting on the page and sharing your thoughts. My logic for running Phyrexian Scriptures is between flavor and having a proliferation target in addition to a semi-one sided boardwipe. But to answer your question there is only one choice for what card I select to replace it: Toxic Deluge. Getting around Indestructible, and not having to wait on the saga to get to II to get your wrath effect already make the previously mentioned a superior choice. Also, the life loss can be somewhat mitigated by Atraxa, Praetors' Voice under the right circumstances. You also reminded me that there was a reprint that has flavor text from Papa Yawgmoth, so I decided to swap in that instance of Toxic Deluge in for Phyrexian Scriptures as it maintains my flavor requirements.

There are however some honorable mentions I thought of in case Deluge isn't to your taste:

  • Culling Ritual in a more competitive meta can do wonders. I've seen this spell ramp a player in excess of 6 or 7 mana on a good turn. Depending on the shifts in my own meta I'm considering running this spell as well.

  • Black Sun's Zenith is a card I find genuinely interesting, one that I experimented with in an earlier iteration of the deck that I think deserves a revisit.

What I would replace Priests of Norn with? No idea. Honestly it's just a placeholder for a better infect creature who will hopefully be printed in the near future. I'm really holding my breath for a for a mono-white color shifted Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon like creature. Given that infect is parasitic, the slot needs to be reserved for an infect creature. On that same note both Grateful Apparition and Spike Weaver are slated to be replaced when better options are printed. My wishlist would be a monowhite creature with infect and proliferate, and another new infect creature that doubles as a stax piece that breaks parity through the proliferation of counters (like Tangle Wire on a body). One can dream though.

What other changes would you make with the deck? Thanks for commenting.

Priests of Norn might be fun. It's a little higher on the curve, but it's a one-hit kill with Aegis of the Heavens.

I'm not sure about Twisted Image. It's kind of a dead card once Huatli, the Sun's Heart or High Alert is out. It might be worth splashing green for things like Assault Formation and Tower Defense.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

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.
