Viridian Corrupter Discussion

Thanks for your suggestions! I somehow missed Phyrexian Swarmlord when I was looking at topend threats, and it's extremely interesting. I think I might add it as a on-off, reason being that I really like Phyrexian Hydra because of all the ways we can it unblockable. Thats the reason I took the hydra over Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Skittles as well- we don't need to pay the extra mana for evasion since we have so many ways to do it ourself, so better to spend the mana on raw P/T. Thanks for the suggestion of Viridian Corrupter , that'll do nicely in the side (:. If you have any other suggestions for sideboard I'd be glad to hear them, I'm pretty out of date with new sets and the current modern meta.

I know Phyrexian Swarmlord is 6 cmc, but I think it might be better than Phyrexian Hydra . It synergizes great with both of Hand of the Praetors 's abilities and also works well with Driven / Despair .

Also there's Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , the cool infect creature no one uses outside of EDH. This might be the one good modern deck for it.

I also see you don't have a sideboard yet. Viridian Corrupter should be good there.

IIRC, Become immense is usually a 1-of, because its another scale up without drawback if you only have 1. I remember seeing Distortion Strike , but I'm not sure where the space in the list is.

Sideboard options worrying about budget (the heirachs are more important); Wilt , Miscast , Dissenter's Deliverance , Aether Gust , Apostle's Blessing , Mystical Dispute . I remember seeing Viridian Corrupter and the spell that makes 2 infect tokens. I saw mono green once with Blight Mamba and Rancor , and b/g with crusader and thoughtsieze.

Deathreap Ritual may go well in here, although you have a good amount of superior card draw anyway. Have you thought of Wall of Blood and/or Lord of Extinction to do relatively the same thing as Phyrexian Devourer ? Just more options. But I can see lord not being that good with no self mill though. Viridian Corrupter can replace a removal spell while also giving you another elf as well as a side threat of infect for people to focus on.

Strangelove on The Beast | Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider | [Primer]

+1 my dude! @your reddit post,

More lands imo. Also more big ramp... seems like Vorinclex is a big target for removal, so ramping up to 15+ mana a turn seems like the way to go.

I think the biggest problem is that you're splitting themes and trying to jam infect. A lot of seemingly powerful cards don't have synergy with the rest of the deck. Only ~12 cards directly create +1/+1 counters. So (eg.) Hardened Scales really does nothing.

...Cut incidental Infect:

-1Viridian Corrupter, -1Spinebiter

-1Phyrexian Swarmlord... I love this card but, even when you're all in on infect it isn't that good...

(I think the other infect cards with 5+ power as soft, 2-card combos with your commmander are viable).

...Cut fatties with no evasion:

-1Renata, Called to the Hunt... if you're interested in playing "go-wide + pump" this could be good, but not better than Bloodspore Thrinax

-1Rampaging Baloths... incidental 4/4s aren't worthwhile

-1Crowned Ceratok... +1Champion of Lambholt

-1Ulvenwald Hydra... no synergy

-1Primordial Hydra... +1Managorger Hydra

When choosing cards ask yourself: (1) Does it work with my commander? (2) Does it work with my theme? (3) Is it strong enough with no synergy to play 1v3? (eg. Rampant Growth, Sylvan Library, etc.)

Happy brewing!

Ayara doesn't seem like a good fit since you only have 7 black creatures including herself and your commander.

Selvala also seems out of place here since you arent playing many large power power creatures. I think I would cut her because on average she won't make more than 3 mana (so 2 because you pay G for the ability) and you'll be handing most of the card draw to opponents. Similarly Hunter's Insight, Life's Legacy, Garruk Primal Hunter face the same problems. These cards feel terrible when they draw you 2-3 cards. Instead I suggest drawing cards or creature casts like Guardian Project, Zendikar Resurgent, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, etc.

If you like storming off with creatures maybe consider Tangleroot. Sure it helps opponents but it makes elf decks vomit their hands and with a creature draw engine on board it might as well be a Primal Surge.

Your deck currently has 1 piece of grave recursion which would make a lot of black mana lovers sad. Some good options are Patriarch's Bidding, Rise of the Dark Realms, Finale of Eternity, & Oversold Cemetery.

Your deck also has a very few ways to disrupt opponents which can be problematic. Reclamation Sage, Attrition, gravepact, Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain, Viridian Corrupter, and Viridian Zealot are good options to consider.

You seem to have abundant ways to produce mana but not a lot of ways to use it. I suggest the classic Staff of Domination as a combo piece and maybe some X spells like Torment of Hailfire. Other mana sinks like Temur Sabertooth can help you dig with draw engines while abusing EtBs.
