Thread: The Cure (Kavu Predator / False Cure)

  1. #401

    Re: The Cure (Kavu Predator / False Cure)

    What are your thoughts on Dark Confidant (possibly lose 4 life if you revel Skyshroud or Reverent Silence), Thoughtseize (Fetch shock into TS for five), Sylvan Library (Lose 8 life draw three)? I would think that these help towards either building enough cards for the Kavu/Cure combo or working towards getting Death's Shadow out as a fatty. This kind of seems like a plan B worth exploring for the deck, as one thing I've noticed while playing the deck is that it is lacking a secondary offense behind Kavu.

    Agreed, I would cut dark ritual for some of these.

    Another top 8, but with an odd SB strategy

    Re: The Cure (Kavu Predator / False Cure)

    Hi everybody,
    I've started tinkering with the deck and tried to make a BUG version of it that I've yet to test. It uses Delver to make pressure from the start while we're setting up the combo or to deal the final damage.

    Blue Cure

    // Main
    4 Tropical Island
    3 Underground Sea
    3 Bayou
    4 Verdant Catacomb
    4 Misty Rainforest

    4 Skyshroud Cutter
    4 Kavu Predator
    4 Delver of Secrets

    4 False Cure
    4 Invigorate
    1 Berserk
    2 Green Sun's Zenith
    4 Daze
    4 Force of Will
    4 Brainstorm
    4 Ponder

    3 Lotus Petal

    // Sideboard
    2 Vendilion Clique
    1 Reclamation Sage
    2 Flusterstorm
    2 Reverent Silence
    4 Mindbreak Trap
    4 Leyline of the Void


    Delver is also good to eat opponent removals saving future predators. The Brainstorm/Ponder package help us setting up delver and sculpt our hand to find what we need to combo out, and Force/Daze are there to protect our spells and creatures.

    I run GSZ and Berserk in the flex slots because I like to be able to fetch for Kavu Predator and to have some more reach like infect does. But those could be 3 Abrupt Decay.

    The whole deck need few mana to run, in fact Cutter, Force, Daze and Invigorate are all free spells, so 18 lands + 3 petals are enough for me.

    The sideboard is experimental but the philosophy is to spend as less mana as possible to answer threats.

    I think this may be a good direction for the deck that I'm about to test. Is half–BUG Delver / half–Infect in the spirit but with a combo solution that make it less predictable and maybe more fun.
    Let me know what you think, C&C are welcome.

    Aria + Predator was something I thought of when that card was spoiled
    I didn't consider Invigorate but it does work well with Predator and can be like a Not-of-this-World for bolt targeting your Arcanist
    Another spicy option would be Wrenn or Loam plus Flame Jab (but I guess dack is already CA by looting the Pfires away)

    It's sweet, but it probably falls under the category of "Pile of Crap That is Propped up by the Cantrip Cartel"

    Re: The Cure (Kavu Predator / False Cure)

    Is there a way to make Aria of Flame work with False Cure? With another free spell (e.g. Cutter) and Grove mana, you can pretty much one shot someone.

    Aria curves out better with Kavu Predator, but False Cure is spicy and also gives more value to Invigorate and friends without Kavu.

    5 mana in one turn is a lot, but Dark Ritual and Dreadhorde Arcanist could help cast False Cure in a Jund Cure deck.

    Or you could even have UBR False Aria Storm with fast mana and cantrips. The easy combo kill is Cure + Aria + spells, but even with Aria on its own you can storm them out over any number of turns with cantrips.
