@sideboard: swapped out Dread Shade , Golden Demise , Moment of Craving vs 3x Phylactery Lich .
since the counters stay on Treasure Map  Flip and Thaumatic Compass  Flip after flipping, and the Fountain of Renewal gets sac'd for a draw very rarely, this could work great. i'm gonna post some results when i did some testing with it

I usually really dislike mill deck in standard right now but this seems pretty nice !

If you're really in need of something against mono-Red, Golden Demise might do the trick ? Or also Moment of Craving, it's really painfull to deal with ( I'm playing mostly mono-Red and I hate this one ).

Else, I would feel a bit safer with more creature but I don't know what to cut for them. They would be more Thief of Sanity or Thoughtbound Phantasm. If you go for the Phantasm, you could try to get a bit more surveil card, it will also help the Disinformation Campaign on the way.

Good luck !

Nice idea, but pretty difficult to build on budget.

You stated, you need ideas for your sideboard:

  • Naturalize (gets rid of the #1 card, ripping your game plan apart in no time: Rest in Peace).

  • Maybe something to gain life to improve your game against burn decks. Budget ways I'm thinking of maybe Bottle Gnomes or Brindle Boar or even Dragon's Claw. Don't know, what you can get your hands on.

  • If possible, add some creatures with a nice value of cost to power/toughness, thus simply providing a second game plan to switch to, if your reanimation somehow is disabled or won't work for other reasons. I'm afraid you'll have to find those creatures yourself, for I have no idea what your budget's top level is nor what you allready got at home.

  • If you got any space left in your board, try to include answers to threats appeariing in your local metagame. Your playgroup/meta is full of decks running a horde of small and fast creatures? Try finding spells that kill of most/all of them at once (I'm thinking of things like Pyroclasm, Drown in Sorrow, Golden Demise and so on). Your meta features combo decks? Look for simple answers to break the combo or prevent it from even happening (=> most likely some discard spells like Duress).

I hope I provided some useful ideas.

Greets, Steve

Have you considered stuff like Legion Lieutenant or Radiant Destiny? You have very few early drops in the deck and a ton of 4/5-drops, Vanquisher's Banner is expensive and doesn't work very well with tokens. If your plan is to go wide, you might want to fully commit to that. Going 4x Queen's Commission, Dusk Legion Zealot(or Martyr of Dusk) and use Skymarcher Aspirant as your 1-drop for the early ascend plus an evasive 2/1 body might be the way to go. I just feel you're going in multiple directions with the list, going Vicious Conquistador -> Queen's Commission -> Ritual of Soot doesn't look like a good idea. Maybe try Golden Demise if you want a sweeper main deck that's a complete blowout with your early ascend. Golden Demise acts like a more versatile Pride of Conquerors if you're playing black. Also, enchantment based removal becomes better than things like Murder with that plan. Baffling End and Conclave Tribunal will help you towards ascend while dealing with your opp stuff, Conclave Tribunal especially to make use of your sorcery speed tokens, going turn 4/5 Call to the Feast into 0/1 mana Conclave Tribunal seems pretty good.

I like this list, looks fun to play. Against Control you can only board 2 thought erasures, a lot to deal with creature based Decks though,... maybe 3 Duress instead of Golden Demise and Fungal Infection? Still +1!

With Carnage Tyrant going rampant and 8 drakes, well having 8 Drakes.... do you guys think its time we should start running Plaguecrafter maimboard alongside some cheap wipe likeGolden Demise for sweeping?

Your mana curve is way too high to just have twenty lands for mana, even with The Immortal Sun. Vicious Conquistador, Famished Paladin, Adanto Vanguard, Dusk Legion Zealot and Martyr of Dusk would bring your mana curve way down. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Binding, Vanquisher's Banner and Radiant Destiny should also be considered here.

Sideboard, I'd look towards cards like Ixalan's Binding, Conclave Tribunal, Seal Away, Sorcerous Spyglass, Vicious Offering, Murder or Golden Demise.

I like the deck idea but disagree with a couple of things.

your "ideal start" I do not think is ideal. you do not need to spend your turns drawing an extra cards turn 3. Your best t1 drop may be fountain but doing effective nothing but gaining 2 life and drawing an extra card on turn 2 and 3 combined you will get raced by boros aggro or selessnya tokens ect quickly. That is a late game interaction which I do admit is brilliant!

Also when you have such good card drawing engines such as dawn of hope/twilight prophet/treasure map you do not need karn at all (agreeing with multimedia if you only use them for this deck)

Phyrexian Scriptures is a bit out of place and Ritual of Soot/Cleansing Nova/Golden Demise would be better depending on what you want.

Apart from those bits being out of place I think this looks like a really fun great deck and a little tinkering (and with resplendent angels and an extra lyra with [budget allowing]) would be a very competitive deck
