Hi I would put 2 Dead Weights at least. Banishing light is great but may be too much for a 22 lands card deck

Maybe Dead Weight? And others of its kind in the family of enchants-that-kill. And, if you do end up doing that, try out Hateful Eidolon.

Aura Field


Whenever a creature enchanted with Auras you control leaves the battlefield, you may attach any number of those auras to another creature instead

I'm using a deck on Arena right now where I recast Dead Weight or similar from my graveyard using Lurrus. So this is sort of based on that.

I don't think Thought Distortion belongs in this deck. It's meant to be used mostly as a sideboard card, possibly to be fetched with something like Fae of Wishes to really hit a hard on a control player that has a hand full of good stuff. In this deck, your opponent will be mostly empty-handed by the time you cast it. You will maybe make them discard 1 or 2 cards at best, if you're lucky.

Fetid Imp is pretty weak and taxes you 1 mana just to remain useful. If you really want a deathtouch creature, you could use Mire Triton instead, but if I was you I would use Yarok's Fenlurker instead, a typical 2 drop in any discard deck, and it would fuel your devotion better for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Kaervek, the Spiteful is an interesting addition, but since he's not always useful and is legendary, I would only run a single copy, maybe 2 if you really like him. Would kill a Yarok's Fenlurker if you decide to use some too.

Mire's Grasp and Dead Weight would work really well with Hateful Eidolon, could be an worthwhile addition. Btw, since you already run those as creature removal, you could swap some Grasp of Darkness for Eliminate so that you can also hit planeswalkers.

You should also run a few Castle Locthwain, no real reasons not to tbh.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful, cheers!

LittleBlueHero thanks. I’ve been playing this and it competes pretty well in the Platinum 4 tier in Arena. Any hand that has you attacking with a 4/2 flying lifelinker on turn 3 does pretty well.

There’s also Hateful Eidolon for card draw. Dead Weight and Mire's Grasp trigger it when they kill an opponents creature.

I think I'll try Dead Weight for Kaya's Ghostform. That fit's nicely with what I'm trying to do. Erebos, Bleak-Hearted is in for Gray, but I may work Gray back in.

Hey, i'm trying to add a deck update on my Mardu vehicles deck and whenever i try to click Save, it says "bad brackets near ... etc"

i checked and i can't find any problems, when i display a card i put Dead Weight which is correct, right?

double square brackets?
