Here's my Glissa, the Traitor Voltron deck. It's been a ton of fun! Any of the other Deathtouch creatures can be suited up and take the place of Glissa. I'll usually suit up two creatures, one with a Lure effect and another beefed up. First Strike+Deathtouch is never a fun thing to have coming at you.



Creature (23)
F Acidic Slime - Removal and deathtouch
F Ambush Viper - Rattlesnake with deathtouch
F Duplicant - The quicker picker upper
F Glissa, the Traitor - The Fangs of the Snake
F Grave Titan - Deathtoucher that brings some friends to the party
F Harvester of Souls - Card drawing deathtouching machine
A Hornet Queen - Rare green flying and brings more deathtouchers to the party
F Clone Shell - Karn was cute, but I think Clone Shell will help more

Maddening Imp - A backwards Lure. This one can get all of them
F Reaper of the Wilds - Card filtering and deathtouch and hexproof oh my
F Rune-Scarred Demon - Big Flying Tutorstick
F Solemn Simulacrum - Best when recurred for profits
F Steel Hellkite - Excellent removal and he won't stay dead for long with Glissa
F Sylvok Replica - Love blowing up enchantments with this guy
Tempting Licid - Lure on a stick. Changing him back doesn't use the stack ;)
F Vampire Nighthawk - Valuetown
F Vengeful Pharaoh - Deathtouching rattlesnake
F Wurmcoil Engine - Don't need to say anything about this guy
Guardian Beast - Oh baby. My artifacts are my artifacts
F Netherborn Phalanx - Useful ability and a tutor for 98% of my deck
F Burnished Hart - Mana Moose!
F Soul of New Phyrexia

Instant (1)

Sorcery (3)

F Akroma's Memorial - Flying and vigilance are superhot. The rest is gravy.
F Argentum Armor - Pop a permy with a big boost as well
F Batterskull - Vig is huge, the life gain can be very nice too
F Blade of the Bloodchief - Lots of creatures die, now they make Glissa bigger
F Bladed Pinions - Flying and first strike, on a deathtoucher? Yeah.
F Bonehoard - This is badnewsbears late game
Champion's Helm - For the Glis.
F Darksteel Plate - Come at me bro

Kudos for playing a licid.

There's a nice thread here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=11230

One card that works surprisingly well is Codex Shredder. Karn, Silver Golem is great for getting rid of non-creature artifacts. And it works with Grave Betrayal.

Heh, Licid's rock!

I saw that thread. It's a lot more combo-y than I like but I did take some pieces from it.

Ahhh, didn't think to use Karn like that. He's in a deck but not pulling his weight. I may just move him over...

Shaman didn't feel quite right. I was thinking Scrabbling Claws but a Nihil Spellbomb would fit right in.

Shriekmaw seems more efficient.

Pulled a foil SoFI from MM. Its going to find a home in here.

Good looking Deck :) My glissa has a pretty funny win con Inkmoth Nexus + Cranial Plating / Arcbound Ravager (sacing tons of tiny artifacts and itself to modular your inkmoth nexus )

I would suggest taking out bladed pinions for inkmoth nexus b/c you need more than 36 lands anyways...

I would also suggest adding Vampire Nighthawk, Harvester of Souls, and maybe Ogre Slumlord these all have Deathtouch and help complete your DT theme, which is very cool! 8)

-spidersilk net +vampire nighthawk
-wanderer's twig +inkmoth nexus
-bladed pinions +harvester of souls
-mirri's guile +Arcbound Ravager

Also think about adding deadbridge chant which is very cool with Glissa!

heh, Bladed Pinions is a fantastic piece of eq in this. I have mostly all DT creatures so it adds that First Strike spice and gets them off the ground.

Cute combo but Homey don't play Infect.

I pulled out a Harvester and a Nighthawk. They're both going in. I also need to find a spot for Karn and Golgari Keyrune.

Updated the list. Can't find my nighthawk now :( I'll snag another one and put it in. Here's a list of what I want to replace

Rune-Scarred Demon - too goodstuff'y. I'll probably replace with Nighthawk
Shriekmaw - same here, just doesn't fit in
Shimmer Myr - Flash is nice but I don't usually leave enough mana open
Xathrid Gorgon - I find it too pricey and she dies quick
Nim Deathmantle - I rarely have the 4 mana open

One the fence with these
Jester's Cap - I don't play against a lot of nasty combo decks any more
Vraska the Unseen - Usually a 5 mana Vindicate. If I can get the assassins out, I could probably Swords them through for a win.
Etched Champion - Usually hits metalcraft, but not very thematic or synergistic

After playing a game against Tajic and Sharuum, I found I needed a way to deal with Indestructibles.

I added Blight Sickle and Black Sun's Zenith Not sure what to do about indestructible non creature permanents :?:

if only Karn was an Artifact Planeswalker :P


I'm going to toss Karn, Silver Golem in. I think he'll be a good include with Glissa and a Lure.

Some things you may consider adding

+Grave Titan (he fits your DT theme and he's really good!) -Carin Wanderer

+mimic vat it works so well with your <Enter The Battelfield> creatures -nim deathmantle never could get deathmantle to work well in my deck and it only works on your creatures which is why I find it less good than mimic vat.

+++I am curious, how well is Grinning Totem working for you? I have toyed with the idea of putting it in my Glissa, but it takes a lot to activate and use...what are your thoughts? Do you have any experiences with the Totem that you can share???

Love me some GT. he's already in there :)

I agree with deathmantle! Mimic vat is a good swap.

I've only been able to drop the totem once. I snagged someone's sol ring then someone else's cabal coffers. Worked out great! I hope to get it out more!

EDIT: So far so good. Stole two Sylvan Primordials in one game. It's not the most efficient choice but its fun.

The Swords aren't doing well in here. I need to replace them. The protection stops me from Lure-ing creatures! The P/T boost isn't enough.

So, I'm going to add Bonehoard and Trailblazer's Boots for when I DO need to get someone through for some damage. I need some Eq that buffs big. I have Argentum Armor and Batterskull but I need some more that will pump things a lot.
