Ensnaring Bridge Discussion

Not a bad idea, but I have to wonder why you'd run a full playset of both Assault Formation and Behind the Scenes. On their own, those spells won't do anything to help you win the game or stall the opponent. If it isn't out of your budget, you could run Ensnaring Bridge for instance and/or more of Doran? You don't have any tags, so I don't know for sure if you're wanting to keep this a budget build, but you also are not tagged as an aggro or mid-range build either.

Painful Quandary is perfect for your next tutor after destroying your opponents hands. Some cards you might want to add. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Scythe Specter and a nice combo plus fits the theme here is Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank one damage to any opponent will kill then or mill them and gain you lots of life. If you want protection from creatures? If your hand is empty like everyone else's hands? then Ensnaring Bridge works great here. Other good protection is Dread.

I see you have Magus of the Coffers! With only 6 swamps you can make infinite mana. Just add Sword of the Paruns and or Umbral Mantle one of these on your Magus of the Coffers and 6 swamps is infinite black mana

One hundred thousand times yes. This deck is fricken awesome! It seems that aggressive decks would be able to get under you before you can get your combo going. Possibly try to go a little bit of a control route with something like Ensnaring Bridge? Also, is Eternal Witness too slow for the deck? In case you wheel or Thought Scour something that you may need later?

I would recommend playing a World Breaker or two to deal with enchantments or artifacts like Ensnaring Bridge or Ghostly Prison.

First post so bear with me. I have an Ensnaring Bridge from stronghold that I don't use for my deck, its in quite good condition, and I am looking for cards to add to my ur-dragon deck or my talrand deck. I also have some cards lying around not in use like Ramos, Dragon Engine Birds of Paradise and a foil prerelease Settle the Wreckage that I did open, but all three are in good condition. The following cards are some of the things I am looking for. Scourge of the Throne Patriarch's Bidding Expropriate Gauntlet of Power High Tide Pact of Negation Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Ancient Tomb some combination of these (as well as others) that adds up to roughly the price of the card is what im interested in. I can trade it to my local store for around 30 dollars so I am looking to get closer to the 40 value if possible. other cards may work, just list your request. I am new to the site so I am unsure of what to check outside of my inbox or the comment thread. Thanks!!

I would remove Clutch of the Undercity for Ensnaring Bridge or maybe Behind the Scenes just to make all your small vamps unblockable. This seems like a fun deck that goes off without much of a warning, great deck

athix on Mill control gone wrong

@frogkill45, I haven't had the chance to try Search for Azcanta  Flip with mill yet, but it's been an absolute powerhouse in UW control as a 2 of. Even without flipping, I'm expecting the card filtering to be a huge boon, considering how quickly this deck turns into top-deck mode.

Ensnaring Bridge can definitely be tricky getting hand-size down in time. But, if you do get hand-size to 0-1 it's basically game over pre-sideboard. Because of this, I'd say mulliganing down to 6-5 is definitely a lot more attractive than it otherwise would be, otherwise you'd want to have at least one Archive Trap you can dump for free.

I'm getting the cards needed to have this and UW control built at the same time, so I'll let you know how Azcanta does in this build when I do. I'll keep an eye on bridge too and see how many games it helps vs Hinders.

Pack_Rat But would you describe a deck with a full playset of Thoughtseize, Mutavault, and Liliana of the Veil as "budget"? Oh, and occasionally with a set of Ensnaring Bridge thrown in for good measure...
