Has anyone had any luck with a loner strategy? Putting one creature out there as oppose to an army of creatures. I do have the Solitary Fiends intro deck and i have cards like Bloodthrone Vampire , fettergeist , Lone Revenant . Not sure how it would work in duels as i have never used it, and honestly im more confident going into battle with my Goblin mob or Rakdo's deck (both argo). But i would like to try this deck some time as i do love the malicious things that black mana cards do. Wondering if i should cut my total amount of creatures in this deck to 20 and have more instants and enchantments? Or if their are any other cards that make good loners as i have only dealt with core13, RTR and Avacyn Restored
If you want to be able to with only 1 creature out, should probably look into building around Phage the Untouchable or Novablast Wurm . Phage is pretty obivious, she get's through, you win. Wurm is also pretty obivious, it attacks, every other creature get's blown up.
In Phage's case, a lot of discard to remove their answers would be in order, as well as Traitor's Clutch to have her slip past would-be-blockers.
For Wurm, you just want to ramp it out in a hurry.
Neither of these cards are in the current sets, but they should be pretty easy to get a hold of.
LOL, beat me to the Cloak idea. I coulda typed faster, but was looking for a card name. The old Vampire legend that couldn't attack unless it was the only one in play, that you lost 3 life each turn, and exiled other creatures?
