Holdout Settlement Discussion

If you want to protect Macar, Champion's Helm, Mask of Avacyn, or Swiftfoot Boots grant Hexproof so that you can still target it with untap effects, Darksteel Plate grants indestructible.

Puppet Strings and Staff of Domination are other options to untap a creature.

Ways to make Macar unblockable would also allow you to attack with him as a means to tap him.

Something like Springleaf Drum, Survivors' Encampment, Holdout Settlement, and Paradise Mantle let you tap him for mana.

I'd highly suggest some additional creatures that benefit from your tap/untap theme.

Nice build! +1...Have you considered using Holdout Settlement for mana-fixing? You have a high creature count and being and aggro build it might speed your deck a bit. 12x Enters-tapped lands seems like it might slow you down.

Warped Landscape would be a land fetch, no?

I'm brewing and playtesting a similar build and i can strongly advice you to include Holdout Settlement and Survivors' Encampment.

You're in 2C, so they won't hurt if you just tap them for . Yet, they allow you to Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist without the "problem" of summoning sickness. Worked wonders mid-late game for me this far.

As they are lands they are pesky and easy to fetch with Tempt with Discovery, Hour of Promise, Sylvan Scrying and others.

Thanks Padapos for the suggestions!

I replaced 4x Plague Belcher with 4x Relentless Dead, but I am unsure of how I am going to fit Geralf's Messenger into the deck. The removal now consists of 4x Path to Exile, and 4x Fatal Push, also putting in 2x Graf Harvest (I would rather this than paying Lord of the Accursed's cost every turn). I don't think I am game enough to include Aether Vial as it is very expensive (Awesome card though). Thanks for suggesting Sea Gate Wreckage, but I think the card draw from Cryptbreaker is enough for me :)

As for lands, I added in 4x Marsh Flats, and 4x Godless Shrine, taking out 4x Holdout Settlement.

Thanks again!

I'm currently brewing on Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist and i'm sure she can do great as a control-ish, pillow fort-ish deck with stuff like Glare of Subdual, Holdout Settlement and Survivors' Encampment.

Justist on A Gruesome Slaughter

Just a few comments:1. What do you plan on sacrificing with Ashnod's Altar? Only Skittering Invasion, Spawning Bed, and Blight Herder put sacrificable creatures on the board, or you'd have to sacrifice the big ones for just 2 mana... Same goes for Eldrazi Monument by the way.
For the mana you could take a look at Blinkmoth Urn, although it may also give mana to your opponents.
2. Gruesome Slaughter sounds fun, but at which point would you actually use it? Half of your creatures seem to have Annihilator, some are so weak that the extra ability won't help, and with a 10/10 you'd probably want to swing face instead of dealing 10 to a creature "for free". Maybe Akroma's Memorial fits better if you plan to have this kind of effect.
3. Which artifacts do you plan to sacrifice with Phyrexia's Core? Otherwise it would just be as good as a Wastes (see point 4).
4. Ash Barrens, Cloudpost, and Holdout Settlement seem to add nothing more than a Wastes would do. While they may look nicer, with more Wastes you could also consider running Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart.
5. You are severely lacking card draw. Consider a Mind's Eye or a Sandstone Oracle.
