Hi, What about Dovescape? It could be truly useful and Amulet of Safekeeping hold it well

Xryzyxyz, Ephermeral Invader

Legendary Creature - Weird Alien

Haste, Flying, First Strike

Xryzyxyz has base power and toughness equal to the amount of lands you control

When an opponent loses the game, if Xryzyxyz is attacking, you gain control of all non-land permanent that player controls


Amulet of Safekeeping rotated out of standard, so I don't have a budget option against the popular Cavalcade of Calamity deck (especially with Torbran, Thane of Red Fell just releasing, so create a spell that really hurts a Cavalcade deck and certain counter decks.

Amulet of Safekeeping is a fantastic suggestion!! Thanks!!

I had Dowsing Dagger  Flip in here originally, and it was okay because Hunted Phantasm is unblockable but it was just too slow. I ended up swapping it out for Hunted Horror .

I think this one is a successful build you can refer to Forbidden Hunted Path ( Aside from that, my personal favorites are Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Amulet of Safekeeping I couldn't figure out a way to link the deck. Sorry.

Hey, nice deck.

I think Mind's Eye is not so powerfull, maybe for the sideboard against blue. Maybe play some Ornithopter or Memnite for cheap defense and pushing Arcbound Crusher . Did you thought about Amulet of Safekeeping in your sideboard as counterspell?

I've yet to find a solid replacement for Shalai, Voice of Plenty . There are cards that protect your permanents and cards that protect you but generally not both. Leyline of Sanctity gives you hexproof, but not your stuff. Same with Spirit of the Hearth . Ivory Mask is pseudo-shroud. True Believer is cheaper, both are less useful than hexproof. Along those lines Amulet of Safekeeping doesn't give hexproof, but it'll probably keep you from being targeted arbitrarily in multiplayer from its tax, and it also slightly debuffs tokens. Didn't work well for me when I tried it but it was a neat idea. Maybe could be sideboarded in against people who like to spawn tons of 1/1 ankle-biters? idk

Consider Avacyn, Angel of Hope to defend your permanents. It's not hexproof, but destruction is the most common type of removal and she prevents that.

I tend to run 36 lands plus 10 ramp sources (granted I adhore mana screw so you might not need all that). So I'd add 5 more lands and 6 more mana rocks personally.

Some cards I'd consider cutting to make room would be Chancellor of the Annex , Amulet of Safekeeping , Trinisphere , Council's Judgment , Suppression Field , and AEther Barrier (would need to cut more though)

General feedback is that it feels like you don't have too many ways to benefit from all the stax effects. Cards like As Foretold (which you have) or just a lot of mana rocks plus something like Unwinding Clock or Brago, King Eternal to let you operate under the oppressive effects more effectively than your opponents.

Lastly I'm not too sure how you win really other than just getting in the red zone with little hatebears. So maybe adding in some combo finishers like Helm of Obedience to combo with Rest in Peace

musicman3310 your right about Orzhov Enforcer , currently the deck lacks early game board presence, so my thoughts where; the enfocer demands removal, can trade up due to Deathtouch and in that case leaves an extra blocker with after life, but i'll give it a test with another Amulet of Safekeeping .

As for Massacre Girl how could I've forgotten this one!! Its actually one of my favorite spoilers thus far. i think it has allot of potential and i am definitely gonna give it a try, if not build a deck around it!!
