Bone Splinters fits great I just overlooked it. I switched it with Go for the Throat and removed Doom Blade from the sideboard (added 2x Golgari Charm utility against aggro and enchantments).

Grisly Spectacle is really very bad and Destroy the Evidence is even worse. I'd suggest running dedicated removal and mill separately instead. Glimpse the Unthinkable is fantastic, but if you're on a budget it is probably out of the question. For mill spells, consider Breaking / Entering and Mind Funeral. For removal, Doom Blade and Ultimate Price are pretty good, or something more expensive like Fatal Push if you can afford it. Manic Scribe would be a much more fitting creature for the deck, who combos pretty well with Phenax. If you can afford 'em, get your hands on as many Shelldock Isles as you can. That card is fantastic in a mill deck, especially one like yours with higher cost spells.

Overall Suggested Changes:

-4x Fog Bank

-2x Dream Leash

-3x Grisly Spectacle

-3x Pilfered Plans

-2x Psychic Strike

-1x Dimir Doppelganger


+3x Manic Scribe

+4x Mind Funeral

+3x Doom Blade

+3x Night's Whisper

hey there, nice looking deck. +1. I just built a similar mono- one recently.

So what about Night's Whisper instead of Read the Bones? it has no scrying, but is , thus easier to cast than Sign in Blood.

Also, what about Victim of Night instead of Doom Blade, at least in your sideboard? depending on your meta, Victim might hit more targets, although it is slightly harder to cast at .

Also also, pauper is the best format ever. EVER! Thank-you for also allowing this to be a pauper support club thread. =D

One suggestion is Fatal Push over Doom Blade but they are a bit expensive, super worth it though.

Darth_Savage, that's a good question and the answer is that I actually consider Bogbrew Witch to be the core card and I draw her reliably enough that more cauldrons would hamper more than help. After all, the cauldron won't be useful for saccing witches until at least turn five. The musts in the deck are with the Newt, Cauldron and Witch. I play in a group that usually only uses creature removal, not artifact or enchantment removal, which makes it pretty potent against what they're usually cooking with. The idea of Bitterheart Witch is to keep people from attacking me, trade with a creature, do ping damage or be thrown into the cauldron to get a curse out and gain life at the same time. She's a lot better than she appears at face value, especially with a group that likes their Doom Blades and Prey Upon.

Your suggestion for Inkfathom Witch's ability is banging but that would require splashing for blue to use its ability. I'd put it in over Thoughtpicker Witch if I did have blue in here. If I splashed for blue I'd also put in some Turn to Frog, but I'm working on a wizard deck that has an emphasis on cards like that, so I don't feel the need to spread into blue just yet.

I am not a fan of Darksteel Plate, there are just way too many ways around it: Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift, Tragic Slip, All Is Dust, Control Magic and Song of the Dryads are examples for various ways to handle an indestructible creature. So unless you are confident that indestructibility is actually good in your metagame (i.e. people rely mostly on Wrath-effects, cards like Doom Blade or deathtouch creatures), 5 mana to play and equip Darksteel Plate probably isn't worth it. An important aspect of the problem is that you have to spend your mana before your opponents spend any mana on the cards you're trying to counter, like a Wrath of God. They see the problem in advance, and can adapt their plans accordingly. For example, they could Return to Dust your Plate, then follow up with their Wrath. Of course, it's not always likely they have the right tools for that kind of play. All i am saying is that relying on Darksteel Plate is risky, since in a game with 2-3 opponents, someone will usually be able to interact at some point.
In comparison, a card like Sword of Feast and Famine protects the equipped creature to some degree, while providing some valuable offensive bonuses. Even if it gets removed after a turn or two, you hopefully reaped some solid benefits already.

Ruaach No problems! I figured I'd try to help! That's what the communitys for, am I right? :D

If you want to replace Grisly Spectacle I'd use Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Dismember, or just Spell Snare or Mana Leak if you want removal/counters.

Good day! :)

Lame_Duck on Afraid of Spiders? Better run.

I think you would benefit from trying to lower your mana curve so you're not so stacked at the 3 mana slot; maybe replace the Putrefy and To the Slaughter with cheaper removal like Doom Blade, Go for the Throat or Smother, depending on what creatures you expect to face, and swap Sporecap Spider out for Canopy Spider.
