Hey ZombieOfun,

I see why you’d ask me for those cards. I did consider them, but won’t be adding them to this deck. Here’s why:

  • I think Rootpath Purifier is only good if you run a lot of basic land ramp (or your commander does it) or you intend to use it to lock out the table with Back to Basics or Blood Moon. In this deck it will be a do-nothing 3/4 for most of the time. Many of the ramp pieces here search for forests, not for basics. I don’t think there’s enough synergy here to warrant a spot.
  • Awaken the Woods looks cool, but I prefer Genesis Wave as a similar spell. You may hit less lands than you would with the Awaken, but at the same time you can expect to hit other landfall cards which also see all the lands you hit with Genesis Wave entering. If it also includes a Purphoros or a Terror of the Peaks, it’s usually game over. Awaken may be better when X is low, but that flexibility does not make me want to add it right now.

Hope this answers your question.

I love Sneak Attack, cause the copy remains on bf and if you go a bit more into the etd-Dragon-world (Scourge of Valkas, Terror of the Peaks, you can make a lot of direct damage.

I'm looking to replace Thraximundar with something more impactful. Ideally Terror of the Peaks, but that's way out of my budget. I'm thinking in the sub-$10 range.

Also, might I suggest Terror of the Peaks? A must-have for any Miirym deck.

Kaisermock The +1/+1 counters that Heliod puts on Weaver cancel out the 1 damage that Weaver is repeatedly being dealt.

Whenever Sporeweb Weaver is dealt damage, you gain 1 life. Whenever you gain life, Heliod, Sun-Crowned puts a +1/+1 counter on a creature. If you deal 1 damage to Weaver, then put a +1/+1 counter on it, that effectively negates the damage dealt. When damage is cleared during the end-of-turn cleanup step, the +1/+1 counters remain.

Terror of the Peaks is in the combo as a recurring source of damage, making the tokens that Weaver creates damage it again.

Ultimately, the combo works out to "Whenever Sporeback Weaver is dealt damage, create a Spider token, put a +1/+1 counter on Weaver, gain 1 life, and deal 1 damage to Sporeback Weaver. Repeat until you deal 1 damage to something else."

Hopefully, this explanation clears it up. If not, please let me know.

Venoctus, if you have the budget and deck space, you could run both Purphoros, God of the Forge and Terror of the Peaks.

I think Purphoros is slightly better for helping Isshin end games because of its group slug damage. Yes, Terror of the Peaks can shoot damage at creatures and Planeswalkers, but is easier to remove.

Also, using Terror of the Peaks as removal is kinda slow and clunky. You need to have Terror stick around long enough and you need to make enough creatures to shoot the damage needed. Remember you can attack Planeswalkers directly each combat, so just send a few tokens or creatures at them. Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, and Vanishing Verse are all great removal pieces.

For Isshin, I've noticed it's helpful to have removal for value engine enchantments and artifacts, and attacking players and their planeswalkers will soften up their boards from blocks.

You are completly right. Purphoros, God of the Forge is the better choice, i wasn't think about him. But for every Token 2 DMG is much better. BUT i cant target Planeswalker, Creatures and so on. Thats why i took Terror of the Peaks first. Do you mean Purphoros, God of the Forge is better to Gameending and i should forgot the "control element" with Terror of the Peaks ?

I would happy if you look to my Muldrotha Deck. Maybe you have also an Idea to get it better. (Landbase work in progress).

Thank you Venoctus, I appreciate it. I'd recommend checking out Purphoros, God of the Forge, perhaps over Terror of the Peaks. That Indestructible is much harder to deal with, and depending on game state, the 3 damage "Ward" from Terror might not be the biggest deterrence to targeted removal. Purphoros also has the added benefit of hitting all your opponents at once, making your end-game of fighting against a total of 120 life around the table a bit easier. Lol Purphoros might even be a slightly more budget option, since Terror of the Peaks is so popular for Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm decks. I guess if your budget permits it, you could run both!
