DuTogira on Replacements for Faithless Looting?

1 month ago

There is no strict replacement for Faithless Looting . All "alternatives" such as Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion cost , which is significantly more than . All alternatives which cost (such as the Insolent Neonate that ToolmasterOfBrainerd mentioned) simply do not do the same job that Faithless Looting does, as looting allows twice the "loot" as all alternatives.
If you're desperate for a replacement, the neonate is probably your best bet... but it feels WAY worse to play than Faithless Looting .

Sooo.... Faithless Looting is banned.

Would Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion be good replacements? Are there any other low-CMC red card-draw cards I'm missing?

Lightningtow on Replacement for Faithless Looting in ...

1 month ago

I found a Hammer Time deck that I liked, but the only problem was that it used Faithless Looting , which is now banned in modern. I'm not sure which card to replace it with. Any help?

I was thinking of using either Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion for card draw, or just putting in Steelshaper's Gift to tutor for equipment or adding a Magnetic Theft or two.

This is the article I based it off of and the deck I'm currently planning on making:

Snowmen1 Sundial of the Infinite is actually one of my favourite cards to play in this deck because of the unique effect, it being such a weird and unused card, and the splash of control it adds to the deck! (although it doesn't come up very often) Funny you should mention Spark Elemental because it was actually the original 1-drop for this deck! It actually got replaced with Lightning Serpent because of the late-game mana dump that you mentioned. Not too sure about the direct damage spells as Shriekmaw absolutely destroys most creatures and can be sideboarded for Guiltfeeder , and really controls the board when you can play it multiple times with Thunderkin Awakener . Altough, Lightning Axe does play into the discard strategy so I'll have a look for sure! As for the Nova Chaser s, the idea is to bin them via Tormenting Voice or Incandescent Soulstoke so that they can be reanimated by Thunderkin Awakener . Their champion effect also allows for cards like Shriekmaw 's and Flamekin Harbinger 's abilities to trigger multiple times for added value. Furthermore, championing a Thunderkin Awakener when it enters removes it from combat and can protect it from dying while adding a lot of pressure. Although, it may be worth cutting one or two to make room for some other stuff. The toolbox sideboard is an amazing idea so thank you for that suggestion! Unfortunately Thoughtseize and Collective Brutality are a bit too pricey for me, although you're correct in saying that they'd make good additions, maybe even on the mainboard! Thank you so much for all the suggestions and feedback!

Can't overestimate Moonlight Bargain , since it fills both your hand and your graveyard at instant speed.

Black's got tons of burst draw, like Dark Bargain , Succumb to Temptation , Sign in Blood , Read the Bones , Night's Whisper , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost etc.

Black also has a bunch of steady-draw effects, like Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and the recent addition that I've liked a fair bit, (especially if you're going to be running sacrifice and reanimate tricks) Bloodtracker .

I'd also definitely recommend Harvester of Souls for your strategy, along with the red discard-draw spells like Faithless Looting , Tormenting Voice , Cathartic Reunion , etc. and the wheel effects like Reforge the Soul , Fateful Showdown , Wheel of Fate , Dark Deal etc.

I have no doubt that you have already considered Faithless Looting and the pros and concs of Tormenting Voice vs Cathartic Reunion .

I am however curious as to your rationale. Seems to me that Tormenting Voice isn't as big a risk if it would be countered (you would lose only 1 card as opposed to 2). Faithless Looting is virtually no risk (since nothing is discarded before it resolves). Another downside of Cathartic Reunion is that if you topdeck it, you have to go 2 turns without doing anything or it's a dead card.

What do you think?

But I like innovation! Part of the point of this was to try and see what staples I could get away with dropping. I get your point though, and the fact that I've moved into Zombie territory hasn't exactly stopped me wanting to load up the graveyard! I'll proxy this up and give it shot as well as perhaps swapping two each of Stitcher's Supplier / Gravecrawler for a set of Neonates. Might also give Tormenting Voice and Magmatic Insight a shot, the latter seems strong with Dakmor Salvage plus LftL but a bit more risky for us with our low land count and not having Wrenn and Six .
