Yes, Dusk Legion Zealot nets you a card, but, for one more mana, Eternal of Harsh Truths gets you cards, more damage, and greater durability.

Lord of the Accursed is an interesting idea. What do you take out for it? Dusk Legion Zealot? Warkite Marauder? Vraska's Contempt? (I feel like Vraska's Contempt is a sideboard card for decks that rely on planeswalkers...)

I would say add Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet can create lots of tokens and Tasigur, the Golden Fang will allow to to keep getting cards back from your graveyard. I recommend you remove Eternal of Harsh Truths and Mirror-Mad Phantasm because they do not have as much synnery as the other creature cards you already have a decent amount of sacrifice outlet and discards to allow your graveyard to be of use.

Snivy__ on Wait, you can actually win an FNM with a 5€ deck?

What's very easy to obtain are Woodland Streams at about <0.01$ a piece. Since your deck doesn't have any one-drops, your first turn is always doing nothing. Now, with Woodland Stream you can get both colors and still keep your pace.

Also, if it's not too much for you, Deeproot Elite seems pretty strong in this deck b/c a lot of your creatures are Merfolk. If you can't obtain them thats ok, b/c Merfolk Mistbinder can also serve in it's place.

Riddleform doesn't seem too strong in this build. All of your spells are either sorcery-speed targeting your own guys, which you can't do with Riddleform, or Instants that are made to be cast on your opponents turn and not your own. I would probably replace it with either Silvergill Adept if you're going towards Merfolk or maybe Treasure Map  Flip.

I would also take out your Eternal of Harsh Truths for maybe Riverwise Augur. This dude can help you Brainstorm and count as a Merfolk, as well as it being a 2/2 body that's dirt cheap.

Take out Garruk's Horde. There are much better replacements for it such as Scaled Behemoth or another Arborback Stomper. 7 mana is just too much for something that gets targeted by all control-like removal (Vraska's Contempt, Cast Out, etc,)

Other than that, good luck on this budget deck! My brother always says to me: "Make a deck that you can be proud of, not a super-budget deck that MIGHT go 3-1" and I respond with "You just don't get it do you. Money doesn't grow on trees or bushes!"

I am a big fan of budget decks!

The reason for Eternal of Harsh Truths over Ammit Eternal is for the card draw. I could take him out all together and put in actual card draw Spells and more counter magic. But then I run into issues with Carnage Tyrant. With eternal on the field it stacks with The Scarab God gives me draw, can bring him back as a 4/4 for more draw (or have them chump taking 2 to the face to not let me draw) instead of having a creature that gets smaller when someone casts a spell (even after bringing him back) or a one time draw spell that I couldn't use again unless I put in Torrential Gearhulk...Though I like your advice to put in more Spells and less Creatures. I'll have to look at that again maybe take out a couple. Though Siren Stormtamer is really good at countering burn or removal. If I can get 1 or 2 of these up on the first couple turns I'm golden.

What about Ammit Eternal over Eternal of Harsh Truths? I feel like your deck is trying to be more aggressive, though I could be wrong.

Hi oldmanm0nk3y, thank you for your comment. No, I'll use this deck tomorrow in the Standard Showdown. What do you think I should do? I could add some Lightning Axes or Unsummons to have even more control... Or more creatures, like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, a fourth Earthshaker Khenra maybe, some Aerial Guides that play well with the Eternal of Harsh Truths?
