You have got to get this playtested and let me know how it does, This deck looks terrifying. I really want to know how the Brain Gorgers work out for you.

Nice respond time XD. Anyways I am thinking the following:

  1. Circular Logic : Awsome, this makes you so much more dangerous to play against.

  2. As for Barren Moor and Lonely Sandbar I think you have the ratios right on the money for you mana base.

  3. I agree with you entirely on your engine choices; since they are so vulnerable perhaps a couple of Dive Down s might be used main or side board if you think your not able to keep your engines alive long enough. I really like the survivor duo btw the more I look at them.

  4. Drop an edict and a duress perhaps. That way you keep your disruption and removal fairly at the same level. 4 Brain Gorgers the second and third game can do terrible things. Because at worst its a no flashback edict. Best its a 4/2 for 2 slamming your opponents face. YOu want to be aggressive with this deck and this card is aggressive.

  5. Ehhhhhh Careful Study is a poor mans Faithless Looting . Still it is a one drop discard 2 outlet. so perhaps a 2 of or one of main board? You could drop a Sign in Blood but I'm not really sure which is the right option. As to Looter il-Kor YES. A one or two of that can really help you loot through your deck. No clue what you would drop help. Perhaps one of each survivor? Thorn of the Black Rose is an EPIC draw engine and blocker.BUT WHAT TO DROP?!

I hope this helps a little but there are too many ways to tweak this deck. My suggestion is to just pick things that ENHANCE your combo through their synergy with said combo. Otherwise you are going to build a entirely new deck (which is not a bad thing.)

Frist off I love this deck. Quick question: is Circular Logic banned? Cause the Legality shows that its not. Now for my suggestions:

  1. Add 2 or 3 Barren Moor s in exchange for an equal number of swamps

  2. Add 1 Raven's Crime which you can use one yourself Or your opponent as need. Plus it gives you a use for excess non-cycle lands. I would drop a Psychotic Haze and put it some where in you sideboard if you are running against a lot of token or weenie decks.

  3. Brain Gorgers should be in your sideboard versus low creature count decks. That is where it shines. Perhaps 2 possibly 3, in your sideboard. It can really hurt someone if that have no choice but to let it hit the ground.

  4. Alternate discard outlets: Perhaps a One of Putrid Imp , maybe one ... Aquamoeba Not alot of good choices for discard engines.

Anyways if I think of anything else I will let you know.

Hope this helps

Tradtional with Kalitas is something like Viscera Seer and Grave Pact to kill the entire board with a single sacrifice, which is usually combined with cards like Gravecrawler, and there is a lot of stuff out there for zombie tribal like Zombie Infestation, Grave Scrabbler, Brain Gorgers Bridge from Below, Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Grave Titan Graveborn Muse, Lim-Dl the Necromancer, Necromancer's Stockpile Quest for the Gravelord Blood Scrivener Necromancer's Covenant, Enduring Renewal, Rise from the Grave, Rooftop Storm, Shepherd of Rot Unbreathing Horde Undead Alchemist Undead Warchief Unholy Grotto and Zombie Apocalypse. And thats before looking at vampire tribal- long story short, see what you enjoy and get playing! there are a lot of possible cards out there, and in a casual setting near infinite viable decks. GLHF!

Ive been testing this myself. In my opinion, it needs more discard outlets. I moved the 4 Brain Gorgers to the sideboard (because giving the opponent an easy counter feels bad against any kind of aggro or creature-heavy deck - sideboard it in against things like mill and delver) and mainboarded 4 Vampire Hounds to give a few more ways to activate Madness. This bumped up the effective curve a bit, so I also cut a Call to the Netherworld for another Swamp.

Just my thoughts. How has it been playing for you?
