I found that the snow land base helps a lot when it comes to CA and filtering. It also allows you to effectively use Corrupt as your main win condition instead of Demigod of Revenge or Korlash. It may be slower, but it just wins far more games against aggro. It still has a game against control because of the snow land base.
Quote from Priest of TitaniaThe only reason to run the snow lands is if you're also running Phyexian Ironfoot and Coldsteel Heart, both of which are missing from your list. Also, Mouth of Ronom isn't necessary, and 4x Scrying Sheets is too many, try dropping at least 1. The most powerful spells in the deck rely on the number of swamps that you have (Korlash, Tendrils, Corrupt*) so you don't want to water down that number with lands that won't do a ton for you until extreme late game.
*Shouldn't be a 4 of, since it's too hard to cast. As a matter of fact, most people have found it to be a bit too clunky, and would often prefer Tendrils over it when they have it in hand.
And finally, drop Shriekmaw for Korlash, and Oona for a miser's Warhammer. It's a no-brainer.
Quote from zemanjaskiThey want to expand reds slice of the pie. They never said they want red to be competitive.
Quote from The_Joker
@Oxido:I agree with you. That´s why I run 3 Ironfoot main deck!
It´s stops Treetop Village. It can kill a CC + Desert, and is something against merfolk, its big and u can untap from the tap from command or Rejeerey.
Split Second spells are really necessary in this deck. That´s why I think Sudden Death it´s a must Go card.
Other thing that I think is, Snow-Engine is quite good for this deck. Take out 1 land of ur draw, sometiems means victory.
Ok, sometimes U´ll not manage to drop Demigod on turn 5. Thats why I run 3.
About man lands, there is a much more effective card than Manipulator, Pithing needle, It just not stop 1, it´s stops all. And sometimes a Garruk or the CC Pump. And is pretty easy t tutor with BTQ and play right on turn four.
Also we have Trip Noose, its just 2 mana, much easier to play, harder to be countered. Lark is difficult on game 1 without Tsize + Extirpate, after this is a fair game.
A good card against lark is mind Shatter tutored with BtQ. Sometimes the best thing against this deck is not just use the Extirpate n Lark, but on Mulldrifter, thats the really win condition on the deck.
Faries for me is the most complicate match ever. Still, underworld Dreams proved very effective on this match.
Merfolk is complicated, but I realizes that, to win, U have to do like this:
T1: Play Desert
T2: Kill the lord with Shierkmaw to avoid Cursecatcher.
t3: Kill rejerrey with Sudden Death
t4: Try to play a Iroonfoot to force a counter or have a huge block.
t5: try to damnation the board with mana to cursecatcher.
If u survived this, as I did on Regz, u manage to win.My biggest problem is: IM A REGULAR PLAYER. I KNOW IM NOT GOOD ENOUGH. AND I REALLY DONT KNOW WHEN TO MULLIGAN AND DO SIDEBOARDING REALLY EFFECTIVE.
:(PLEASE SOMEONE QUOTE FOR ME THEM THE MSG WILL BE OK
Quote from tanguchoHi, I am new to the thread but I am a hearted MBC player.
I am curious about Demigod of Revenge? How good is he on playtest?? I was wondering about including Smallpox since it seems to be very bad for the bad matchups. Obv including also some accel, demigod and maybe a couple of GY tricks like haakon and nameless for infinite removal.
Quote from ReanimationP.S.
Who needs porn mags when you have Rite of Consumption on a Doomgape?
Quote from Dark SpawnSygg is not a problem when you have sudden death, thoughtseize and tendrals.
Btw for MBC here are the match ups -
Best MUs - Straight forward agro, basic creature based, kith, elves(mono green) random treefolk/elemental decks, Mono red aggro(not burn heavy)
50/50 (or close to) Mus - Fae, ramp (the g/r no land d version), Merfolk (it really 50/50 with my build imo), Elves (G/b version), Doran, Manniquen varients, Goblins, U/w control, mirror MBC, Rogues. Teachings
Bad MUs - lark, G/w aggro/control, Ramp (running land d) and of course RDW(burn).
The biggest threat i think is RDW g2 and 3 - Manabarbs and Torment really hurts, but i try to out race them and land korlash or a demigod, Hoping they waste their burn on it! So this is what i see from HOURS of testing Real life and online.
Quote from PhaerimmArchlordI love this....Lets put more bad decks online,and cause a big stupidity leak.
Quote from makingnotchesI don't care if he's sober or not, he's right.
Quote from neversober13profane command and dusk urchins have really good synergy.. i would suggest playing good mana accel like korlash.. to help the profane command wins..
i dont really like the synergy of damnation and blossom.. (or the antisynergy).. so one or the other MD with some of the other SB. probably blossom MD..
MD bottle gnomes?
tombstalker is sick..
instant speed removal is clutch (esp against fae)
Quote from Dark SpawnDiscard/rack is not good without card draw... no dark confidant - no real competitive rack MBC deck. If i was to run it, i would go more toward the Bb, rack, smallpox kinda build. Diff thread.
Tombstalker too slow, especially when it gets bounced (unless you play smallpox/discard) Bottle gnomes md? i mean seriously i thought we are tryin to keept his deck competative. Unless ur meta is 90% Burn, no gnomes...
Also extirpate md will be a dead card most of the time instead of an answer. It doesnt effect the field, and in an agro meta its not that good IMO. Ive tested it and i do no like it mD. Like i said, if your Meta is 90% lark... play it md.
The real question is Mutavault or desert? If fae are not as popular i migth switch back to mutavault myself... but we shall see. There is nothing better when ur opp goes T. Maniac or mogg fanatic, and you go DESERT =)))
Quote from tanguchodream salvage and dusk urchins seems good for a rack deck
If you guys are having problems against Pro-Black creatures (hello there, Colossus!), just run some Mouth of Ronom with Snow-Covered Swamps and/or race them out. It's what I do.
