Witch's Oven Discussion

MasterWithAPlan on Ayara the Nighmare Merchant

6 days ago

Playtest suggestions:

-1 Teysa, -1 ayara, -4 gutterbones, -1 corpse knight, -1 woe strider, -1 gray merchant, -1 nightmare shepherd

+4 Cauldron Familiar, +4 Witch's Oven, +2 Seraph of the Scales

Reasoning: Having 4 counts of any legendary creature in a deck can get you into trouble, if you can avoid it and still keep the deck running well, do it. I think you'll also be surprised at how fast the lifegain and damage add up from cat/oven when you have either cruel celebrant/corpse knight in play.

Example: Opponent attacks

     1) block with cat preventing damage

     2) sac cat with oven in response (makes food)

     3) cat dying triggers celebrant (+1 life, -1 opponents life)

     4) replay cat using created food (+1 life, -1 opponents life)

     6) corpse knight triggers from cat re-entry (-1 opponents life)

You have now blocked all damage, gained two life, did 3 damage to your opponent, spent zero mana, and all this happened during their attack phase.

The cat also synergizes very well with teysa, whereas gutterbones wouldn't have that extra trigger. It's worth a shot to playtest this stuff at the very least.

The seraphs of the scale would do amazing things both for death triggers (celebrant, teysa) and would leave you with a board presence even after a board wipe (2 flyers at that).

Other cards to think about:

-Liliana, Dreadhorde General (excellent synergies with most of your deck, her "both players sac 2" ability would do a LOT in your deck, including gaining you life, doing damage to opponent, and getting additional draw triggers from teysa)

-Command the Dreadhorde (just don't kill yourself! Not sure if your deck has enough lifegain to support this, but it might)

-Basilica Bell-Haunt (does wonders on its own, but amazing with nightmare shepherd and the additional devotion for gray merchant)

Hope this helps in some way!

I think this would be better as a more aggro deck, Dreamshaper Shaman is nice but honestly is way off curve. Could cut him and add in something like Witch's Oven and then cut the land down because the highest cmc would be 3. Also adding in Gallia of the Endless Dance would help with the pace; also helps Blood Aspirant which could go to 4 of if you went for a more aggro build.

Other wise Furious Rise and Anax, Hardened in the Forge could contribute to this as well.

One idea you could do is replace Lampad of Death's Vigil with Mayhem Devil and Bloodthirsty Aerialist with Woe Strider and turn the deck into sacrificial pinging damage instead of life gain. Already your deck can only gain life from Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Lampad of Death's Vigil. If you don't mind being more "meta"-based, you could throw in Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven (or just the oven would be good in the deck you have right now) and for even more life gain as well as devotion for Gary is Ayara, First of Locthwain. Sorry for all the suggestions. :p

Have you considered a Witch's Oven or 2? They can cycle your Cauldron Familiars, which can be nice.

Also, Command the Dreadhorde can be nasty later game maybe.

I'm thinking you could use Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven as a life gain engine to fuel your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . You also have enough cheap black creatures to ping someone with Ayara, First of Locthwain a few times per turn to help get +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion . Epicure of Blood and Vindictive Vampire might be good to add. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is going to help you power up your vampires and give them lifelink and deathtouch for the turn if they don't have it. Blood Burglar, Savage Gorger, and Dark Remedy would be my first cuts. I'd also see if there are good replacements for Disfigure and Sorin's Thirst.

I'd also might take it in another direction with Smitten Swordmaster and Lucky Clover , but then You'd need to swap most of your vampires for knights.

Hey, Emry, Lurker of the Loch combos with Corridor Monitor and Witch's Oven . Monitor can untap Emry or Oven, Oven can sac Monitor and Emry lets you cast Monitor from your graveyard. This combo lets you keep casting Monitor from your graveyard getting it's untap trigger when it ETB. Food tokens are artifacts and each time you sac Monitor with Oven you create two artifacts because Monitor has 4 toughness.

Sai, Master Thopterist is a powerful card with artifacts especially with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo which can each turn make a lot of 1/1 Thopters since you cast Monitor from your graveyard with Emry. Sai is also another way to sac Monitor to draw. Aetherflux Reservoir can be a win condition with the Emry/Monitor/Oven combo because you're casing Monitor from your graveyard with Emry.

Pilgrim's Eye seems pretty replaceable; maybe Stonecoil Serpent , Courser of Kruphix , even Golden Egg or Witch's Oven .

Like the idea! Cheers!
