Vicious Shadows Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Please help me find more …

So I second the inclusion of Greven, Predator Captain (might even be a commander for this deck). Here are a couple other cards to consider: Warstorm Surge, Haktos the Unscarred, Stalking Vengeance and Vicious Shadows.

Sort of. I have a couple of big damage chuckers, not to mention the ones every Purph player has:

And Bloodfire Colossus for a sort of instant speed board wipe.
Considering taking out my one piece of life-gain and just re-adding Bloodshot or putting back Warstorm Surge to double up on etb + burn effects...

I'd say add in Vicious Shadows and Stalking Vengeance to the mix and turn the Pandemonium against them for killing your shit.

With the cards that allow opponents to draw, Vicious Shadows might have a place.

Runehorn Hellkite, Dragon Mage, Stalking Vengeance are some good non-devil creatures that work well with him. You'd also want Temple Bell in the deck if you're going to be sacrificing creatures Mass Mutiny, Mob Rule are good options, enchantment burn options that aren't the god of the forge, Impact Tremors, Warstorm Surge, Vicious Shadows.

I think that Felhide Spiritbinder deserves a closer look. There are no ways in the deck to take take advantage of his untap ability besides just attacking. I know this deck wants to make tokens, and this seems like the worst ability that does that, that deal non combat damage with effects, so perhaps something like Furnace of Rath or Dictate of the Twin Gods could be nice instead.

Stalking Vengeance seems to cost to much for the effect on a card that is easily interacted with. For the same mana cost you could run Vicious Shadows. It has the upsides of triggering on all creature deaths and being an enchantment which is harder to interact with than a creature.

Finally, Fires of Yavimaya seems like a cut to me. Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded could be an interesting choice here. It has pretty decent synergy with the decks general plan and grants haste to your bois. Samut, Tyrant Smasher seems a bit better as well.

Thanks JRaynor! I kinda wish that Kels was Grixis, so I could throw in Vicious Shadows, or some of the R/B Wither creatures.

I do have a -1/-1 counter list with Kels at the helm. It features stuff like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Crumbling Ashes, Blowfly Infestation, Nest of Scarabs and Necroskitter, but it feels less focused than this list. I'll likely revisit it and make it public.

This combo requires timing but it's my combo.
