Hey guys! i might buy a list of the following cards Thought Scour Growth Spiral Crumbling Necropolis Archaeomancer Architects of Will Augur of Bolas Gurmag Angler Merfolk Branchwalker Sea Gate Oracle

But i would like to know your opinion about the deck before i do buy them. if possible i would like to know which cards would work and which ones would not. Also suggeste me a couple cards to switch for the ones you think won't work :D

Im making a deck consisting around 4 colors thats a bit competitive but is also fun satisfying to play.

Link to the deck :https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/4-color-mad-shit/?cb=1553131651

Thanks a lot!

apart from Demon of Wailing Agonies and Vault of Whispers this deck could be modern legal.

you got to many high costed cards that do nothing, don't have synergy or are straight up trash.

you dont have to read all of this... its a lot. eg: Fen Hauler (you have almost no artifacts) and you could replace it for Gurmag Angler , Steel Wall , Prakhata Club Security , Prizefighter Construct can be chump blocked and dies to anything, Pitiless Vizier how do you discard or cicle cards?, Sengir Vampire high cmc, Phage the Untouchable the same but its actually a neat card that you could make some jank deck (thanks for the idea), Nightmare trash, Night Market Guard trash too, Extractor Demon to high costed unless you have a way to trow it on the gy, Dread Defiler the same and does nothing really, Bloodhunter Bat trash, Demon of Wailing Agonies you dont have a commander, Haunted Plate Mail to high costed and you got too many creatures to even use it, Staff of the Death Magus not usefull, Cinder Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary whats the point??.

uff dude, from what im looking its a deck you made from with the cards you had lying around, so you want to first have an idea of the game plan you wanna go to, a discard base control or aggro or reanimator and so on. or see what card you would want to work with and make the deck around it, when you do i can help you build the deck. just make a comment or hit me up idk.

Gurmag Angler

Planeswalker - Zombie Fish

Delve

+1: Put the top 5 cards of your library into your graveyard. Until your next turn, spells you cast gain delve.

-3: Return target nonlegendary creature from your graveyard to the battlefield. It is a zombie in addition to its other types.

-5: Until your next turn, non-zombie creatures your opponents control attack this planeswalker if able. Untap all zombies you control. They get +2/+2 until your next turn.

3


I took some liberties seeing as Gurmag Angler is a vanilla creature with an overcosted mana cost and delve but tried to build it so that it reflects the "Angler" part of its name.

simplebricks thanks! you've given me allot to think about and I've made some changes accordingly and will continue to as I play test.

A few of my overall thoughts.

Gurmag Angler seems fine as a 1 of (3 was a bit excesive) I feel as though we discard enough land/noncreature to cast him in the mid game

I agree on Putrid Imp but Wild Mongrel actually feels like the best turn 2 play? it leads to extremely explosive starts if you turn 1 existence into imp.

I have a fear of decking my self which is why I added Battlefield Scrounger , is that a pretty rare situation?

Hi guys, i'm an old school MtG player who got on MTGO for the first time 4 days ago. I've only played Mono Black in a casual format until now, so i'm not an expert.

I've chosen to play the Pauer format on MTGO and i've started with a UB Teachings... this is my Decklist:

LANDS: 1x Bojuka Bog 3x Dimir Aqueduct 4x Dismal Backwater 7x Island 1x Mortuary Mire 2x Radiant Fountain 4x Swamp

INSTANT: 1x Dispel 1x Disfigure 1x Tragic Slip 4x Counterspell 1x Deprive 2x Essence Scatter 1x Doom Blade 1x Diabolic Edict 3x Think Twice 1x Soul Manipulation 3x Forbidden Alchemy 1x Mystical Teachings

SORCERY: 1x Preordain 2x Duress 1x Wretched Banquet 3x Chainer's Edict 1x Shrivel 3x Rakshasa's Secret 1x Deep Analysis

CREATURES: 2x Sea Gate Oracle 1x Mulldrifter 3x Gurmag Angler

SIDEBOARD: 1x Chainer's Edict 1x Crypt Incursion 1x Dispel 1x Doom Blade 2x Duress 1x Mulldrifter 2x Negate 1x Nihil Spellbomb 1x Sea Gate Oracle 2x Shrivel 1x Stormbound Geist 1x Echoing Decay

I've got more losses than wins (probably mostly due to the fact the i'm new to this type of deck) but i'm wondering if you guys have some tips for maximize my chances to win consedering the actual meta in pauper.

I'm not playing in tournaments right now.

I'VE GOT A BUDGET OF 5 TIX TO SPEND FOR THE POWER UPS!

Thanks in advice!!

While going through my collection I came across the quirky/niche card Misthollow Griffin ; and wondered "What could be done with this guy?"

A few other "cast from exile" creatures I know about from the hip that have been printed more recently than Misthollow Griffin are Squee, the Immortal and Eternal Scourge . The 3/3 Flyer and the 3/3 and 2/1 bodies dont exactly seem like impressive win conditions on their own but with the power of recursion and late game value with tools like Moorland Haunt ; in the right shell could these creatures be put into a deck that was more than just a theme/gimmick brew?

My thoughts about it... Show

What kind of shell/colors would you use and what do you think some other good cards to hold the deck together could be?

ToolmasterOfBrainerd really? I always played delver pre Ponder banning so its been a while. Im presuming Gurmag Angler is making a difference?

Theres only 1 tron deck around here while theres about 8 burn variants in a relatovely small lgs XD so u can get why we hate burn more than tron hahaha

M_Malcom the decks we face here that are red have quite the variety. Theres the gobs and the spell based ones mainly. I can put prisons in sideboard for the creature based ones to make them very veryvsad

hungry000 Interesting points. Thing in the Ice  Flip is definitely a problem for this deck. Trickbind ing Thing only stalls to their next instant or sorcery and and Trickbind ing Phoenix only works on 1 Phoenix at a time. But being able to stall like that is a real tempo swing. Post-board my Rest in Peace is nice, but not enough.

I don't think either Trickbind or Squelch is where I want to be in this meta. UW Control is very low in metagame share. Tron is lower than before and I have other ways to fight them. I've been toying with the idea of Mishra's Bauble . Pumping Tarmogoyf to 5/6 vs Gurmag Angler or Lightning Axe is nice. It's also a way to 'scry' for Delver of Secrets  Flip. I'll try swapping out Squelch and see what happens.

Thanks for the comment!
