So I have an idea for a deck based on an old preconstructed deck I bought back in Nemesis called Replicator:
The deck basically was a sort of aggro/control hybrid, that used Howling Wolf
, Skyshroud Sentinel
, and Nesting Wurm
with to flood your hand with cards to discard with spellshapers like Stampede Driver
. Obviously, as a precon, it wasn't very good. But the idea was very fun and I think with Squadron Hawk
out now a similar deck could be made as W/G or W/G/B.
So I know of four cards with this type of effect. Do any more exist where when you play one you search your library for 3 more copies and put them into your hand?
What are some good discard outlets to abuse? The first that comes to mind is Zombie Infestation
but I'm sure there are better options.
I was thinking as a finisher I could have some sort of Living Death
type effect to flood the board with all the creatures I've discarded.
Or perhaps I could simply have creatures that rely on a full graveyard instead of using a living death effect, like Boneyard Wurm
Anyhow I'm just looking for some overall direction and card choices for a deck like this. The core would be 4 of the Wolf, Sentinel, Wurm, and Hawk. Then some sort of use for the cards in hand to discard, and some sort of use for the cards in my graveyard, rounded out with some nice removal which these colors make readily available.
Edit: Oh another idea I had was instead of using the graveyard, I would have cards that could shuffle the graveyard back into the library to keep reusing the cards over and over again after I discard them. Like 4 Elixir of Immortality
so I'm bound to draw them over and over again and get extra life and just have an ever flowing supply of life and cards to discard.
