seshiro_of_the_orochi on Scarred by Death (Horobi Minus Counters)

Orange+: Thank you for the kudos.

The Minus counter theme is something that grew while going through my collection. I do realize that Ifnir and Carnifex Demon don't target, and that actually is the reason I included them. The deck has two cards that can steal opposing creatures. The first one is Grave Betrayal, which is just ridiculously powerful, but also costs seven mana. The second one is Necroskitter. If I were to target a creature which e.g. Cauldron of Souls, it would die before getting the counter, so Necroskitter wouldn't trigger. The demons can spread the minus counters without targeting, so the next targetting ability will give me control over them. A thing that seems very interesting in this regard is that proliferate doesn't target. I don't yet know what to make of this, but I'm pretty sure there is a way to abuse this...

The auras are meant to be used just as you said. They can protect my creatures when I attach them without an active Horobi. Swiftfoot Boots are especially important here. Protecting either K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth or Magus of the Coffers is crucial. Unhallowed Pact and Unholy Indenture habe a special little place in that regard: They can simply be protection, but enchanting an opposing creature with either before putting out Horobi is another way to steal them.

There are overall three spells like that: Bone Harvest, Forever Young, and Gravepurge. They are somewhat of a combo with Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Bolas's Citadel. Fill my grave with lots of creatures, control a Citadel and have a Merchant in hand or graveyard. Cast one of the three recursion spells, put all the creatures on top (If Gary is in the Grave, put him on the bottom of the creature pile). Cast all the creatures with Citadel, then cast Gary into a crowded board and drain an obscene amount of life. When we have enough mana, Death Denied or Reaping the Graves can do a similar thing.

There is one find in particular that I really like in the deck: I've always wanted a reason to play Skeletal Wurm. Horobi is propably the only deck that can make use of it, and it plus the not so small number of other activated abilities is the reason I included Necrotic Ooze. This can be a very powerful creature that can protect itself from Horobi's influence.

Neat mutate catch, but is it worth it compared to cheaper Unhallowed Pact-style Auras?

I'm a big fan of Ozolith, esp. since it'll work with those few other +1/+1 sources you got

Oh and you can recur the component parts of stacks under your control too: Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, False Demise, Minion's Return, Shade's Form, Unhallowed Pact, Unholy Indenture, Fool's Demise

Gangrenous Zombies would be a good addition, as would Cackling Fiend . Vulturous Aven and Wicked Guardian are a couple moore creatures that could draw you cards.

Some cards I like to use in my deck are the Unhallowed Pact variants to get some extra devotion if you use them on something other than Gary. You've got Shade's Form , Kaya's Ghostform , and Unholy Indenture . In addition there is Abnormal Endurance .

great deck but maybe instead of Unhallowed Pact use Kaya's Ghostform it's a common and it also works if it'd get exiled
