Soulflayer

Creature — Demon

Delve (Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for .)

If a creature card with flying was exiled with Soulflayer's delve ability, Soulflayer has flying. The same is true for first strike, double strike, deathtouch, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, reach, trample, and vigilance.

Yesterday on Does deathtouch apply excess noncombat …

I control a Toralf, God of Fury  Flip, and a Ghyrson Starn, Kelermorph equipped with a Gorgon's Head. I deal exactly 1 damage to an opponent's Fortified Rampart, causing Ghyrson to shoot it for 2. The Rampart takes 2 damage from a source with deathtouch, then dies when SBAs are checked. Was that Rampart dealt excess damage, considering only 1 damage would have been sufficient to kill it?

Likewise, I control a Soulflayer with deathtouch and trample. In combat, it gets blocked by the Fortified Rampart. I have the option of assigning only 1 damage to the Rampart and the rest to the defending player, since the 1 damage with deathtouch would be lethal. If I choose to assign 2 damage to the Rampart and 2 to the defensing player, have I dealt excess damage to the Rampart?

I'm currently assuming no to both, but would love to be wrong.

Rhyno52 I’ve been looking at Lotleth Troll a lot since I started messing with Soulflayer haha so yes I think a golgari or golgari inclusive variant will be on the horizon. :)

Cairn Wanderer, Death-Mask Duplicant, Eater of Virtue, Soulflayer, and Urborg Scavengers all have a "keyword soup" ability, but they don't all synergize with each other. A lot of them compete for the same resources. Make sure you don't cross yourself up.

PickleNutz-- nice to hear from you! Glad I could be of some help and I hope my decks do okay for others who may try them.

I assume you mean this deck: PickleNutz Soulflayer deck

That's a pretty cool deck! I might steal the idea of Soulflayer from your for this deck at some point!

zapyourtumor don't even get me started on that bullshit. I can go all day about Simian Spirit Guide when they banned the reason it become busted, Tibalt's Trickery . #FREETHEMONKEY!

My friend's list usually had one or two because he played dorks like Sylvan Caryatid for the hexproof for Soulflayer or just to try and get it out faster. However, I do like the thought of Angrath's Rampage . It's in a binder as a potential for the deck (and because I found it in Japanese).

I'll try to send the list when I can communicate with my friend but his list was something like this:

4x Soulflayer 4x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn 4x Banehound 4x Sylvan Caryatid 4x Lotleth Troll

3x Grapple with the Past 4x Grisly Salvage

Plus whatever lands and potential removal. I've seen lists online playing stuff like Chromanticore but he didn't play any red cards.

zapyourtumor my friend was playing Soulflayer and he would delve Zetalpa and I simply lost whenever that happened. Grasp of Darkness is a thought, but normally he would have hexproof on it as well. Again, it is there for now but obviously I need to adjust according to whatever the meta may come to.

Murderous Rider was there as a catch all for later games since Fatal Push can't hit anything past 5, but it would be taken out. There may be an adjustment with how many Light Up the Stage s I play, with Murderous Rider and whatnot. Something to think about. Thanks for the thought!

Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is another one that I'm going to play when I can find a foil Japanese Extended art, or have the money to afford it. Another way to help with grindy games.

Honestly, Dreadhorde Butcher is a potential as well. But his ability to just take over games cannot be denied. Plus, he's probably one of my favorite cards in Pioneer. It is RARE that I don't like to see him. He can be a serious clock. However, he isn't as synergetic as some of the other cards.
