Peoyogon on Dauthi Aggro 3: Dauthi Harder

I love shadow! I built a deck around dauthi for a small $10 deck tournament. It was super fun! Too bad Dauthi Warlord isn't pauper legal :(

In my deck, I also ran Unholy Strength for pump. That might work for this deck too!

I also used one of my favorite cards Vampiric Link. I love it because you can either thrown it on your own creature to gain life or slap it on an opponent's creature and effectively pacify it. Either way, I found it was really good against mid-range decks and other aggro (non-infect) builds. It might be a card to consider for your sideboard at least!

Have you considered leaning a bit more into Rogues? They have a really nice lords (Stinkdrinker Bandit/Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive/Sygg, River Cutthroat) and some nice equipment (Cloak and Dagger). Unstable Mutation is a better alternative to Unholy Strength. Even though it will eventually kill your creature you can sneak in up to 10 damage with a 1 power unblockable creature before that happens. Hope this helps.

This deck feels sort of unfocused. Specifically, Mindcrank and you choice in card draw spells (unless you're tryna mill someone out, in which case take a look at Paranoid Delusions) seem counter-intuitive. I would recommend thinking about what you want to do every turn.

Turn 1: drop an unblockable creature.

Turn 2: either pump it up or, if possible, play Invisible Stalker.

Turn 3: pump it up more and keep drawing cards off of Curiosity and the like.

To this end I would recommend... switching to UW?? Yeah. Why? Because Staggering Insight and Sentinel's Eyes are two very strong cards, as are Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters.

However, if you want to stay UB, that's fine. I recommend Sleeper's Robe, Curious Obsession, Demonic Vigor, Eel Umbra, Predator's Gambit, and Unholy Strength. They seem pretty good.

Very cool deck! Though not a cleric or demon, you might like Blood Speaker . Children of Korlis is a neat cleric that works nicely with Ravos, Doom Whisperer, Razaketh, and Vilis. The Children also have a fun place in the history of magic. Like the pentagram in the original art of Unholy Strength , Children of Korlis drew the ire of many parents for having the words "Sacrifice Children". Then there's the classic cleric combo: Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor , which allows you to gain an arbitrarily large amount of life with Starlit Sanctum. Toss in a Transmutation and you can use the Sanctum to take out an opponent with this combo. Other cards you might consider are Bishop of Binding , Blind Zealot , Custodi Soulcaller , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and Heirloom Blade .

Thanks Skulloelegy! Predator's Gambit is just in there as an Unholy Strength that can occasionally help Ogre Marauder get through. Demonic Vigor is a great card though - I actually prefer it to Infernal Scarring , which would also open the two-drop spot for Dark Favor . I'll probably keep at least a few Supernatural Stamina in there though - unlike Demonic Vigor, it keeps your creature out on the board and can also just be a Shock to finish off the game.

I assume you mean <$5 (crocodile wants to eat the bigger number)

All Hallow's Eve would be cool but expensive.

Other than that idk how "Halloween" themed it will be. Maybe like Unholy Strength to pump your guy.

Yup. Used to run Unholy Strength , but switched to Infernal Scarring for a bit more resilience. Both work well.
