Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward?

Dispeller's Capsule is useful. Etherium Astrolabe might be too. I've seen Dreamstone Hedron and it's ilk (mana rocks that can be sacced to draw) used quite extensively, and the ability to recur them is always a bonus.

On a related note, Hanna, Ship's Navigator is probably too useful to not run. She was a great include in the Breya deck. My buddy uses her as his commander and just picking up Burnished Hart over and over gets annoying, but flies under the radar enough to not draw attention to him.

Thanks for the feedback, I totally forgot about Pernicious Deed and Maelstrom Pulse, I'll definitely find room for those.

As for the Mike and Trike combo, the reason it's not in my deck already is because I don't like playing combos. I like the idea of them but I find them uninteractive and and don't like those cards that might as well read "You win the game" when paired with something else.

Slum Reaper I had looked at, but I find Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner to be more than enough.

Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact I had of course looked at before, even though the Butcher costs more to cast, I find him to usually be enough, and with the tutors I don't have any trouble finding him when I need to.

Dawntreader Elk could find his home in here, more sac based land ramp is nice. As for Burnished Hart, whenever I have played it in the past I found it too expensive. I originally had Yavimaya Elder in the deck, but getting him early never turned out good for me, as I ended up with far too many cards in hand, and not enough mana or land plays to use them.

The Eldrazi Spawns are another thing I had considered, I used to play Catacomb Sifter but I didn't find it particularly useful. I see the tokens as a different direction for the deck, for a bit of a different play style.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll definitely check out your deck, maybe you've got something different that I like.

Really solid deck. You might benefit from a bit more removal. gives you access to Pernicious Deed and Gaze of Granite, two very powerful boardwipes that give you a lot of control over what stays and what goes. And always with the option of = for tokens. Maelstrom Pulse is another interesting one, but it's sorcery speed may detract from it some.

You could really benefit from Triskelion in this deck. You already run Mikaeus, so adding this card would put in a solid backup combo for you. Also, it means if you ever resolve Tooth and Nail, you win.

Slum Reaper is a third Fleshbag, which is a powerful ability in this deck, though it's up to you if you want that kind of redundancy.

Dictate of Erebos, and to a lesser extent Grave Pact, can pretty much keep the field clean for you. And they stack with each other and your Butcher of Malakir, so they rarely end up as dead draws.

Creatures that sac themselves can be extremely useful. A few you don't have but may like are Dawntreader Elk, Burnished Hart, Sylvok Replica, and Yavimaya Elder. You run a lot more sac outlets than I do, so these aren't necessary, but I figured I'd mention them at least. The Elder especially has proven itself many times.

The other thing that you may consider are Eldrazi Spawn Tokens. These are a free exp counter for Meren, as well as ramp and a waiting death trigger for if you have your Butcher or some similar card online. I'm personally quite partial to Awakening Zone and Catacomb Sifter, but there are more.

Sorry for the long post. You already have a really solid deck, but if you like anything in here and would like some suggestions on what might be cut for room, lemme know. Also, if you're interested, I have a Meren deck on here too. Feel free to check it out and leave any feedback you might have.

In most cases, the game will either be over by the time the suspend counters are gone, or you'll have another answer for it.

I would think about swapping a few counterspells for more answers for things that have hit the table. I like Wipe Away, Reality Shift, and obviously Cyclonic Rift. Evacuation is also very handy.

You'll want some land ramp too. Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart are great.

I would also think about just a little bit more draw. Recurring Insight, Mystic Remora, and Rhystic Study are all great. It's easy to make room for draw in a deck like this, because most of your cards are just repeat efforts that fill the same function.

Lastly, you need more consistent win cons, which can be one of the trickier parts of mono-blue if you aren't going for infinite mana + Blue Sun's Zenith. I like Roil Elemental, Tidespout Tyrant, and Rite of Replication.

As for what to remove, I'd look at your higher-cost counters.

You're missing the staples of tax! Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Glowrider and Vryn Wingmare. Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum are ramping cards for non green decks.

I always cut Burnished Hart out of mine because I never wanted to reanimate him....but just popping him one time always made a huge difference in a game for me. And with yours I think the color fixing he offers might be essential

xSKINCOLLECTORx You are right and i try to make a spot for him. Maybe should I replace Burnished Hart for him?
