Hi,

We like your deck. Would you consider adding Jester's Cap? It's perfect to remove the win conditions from decks that rely on only a few cards for that. And should a deck contain more powerful wincon cards, you can always use Silas's wonderful ability to get the cap back into your hand :)

Regards,

Mrs. & Mr. NV_1980

Against popular opinion... and endless articles of people presenting their alternative mathematical data disproving Deck-Thinning and using fetches doesnt work/isnt worth it....financially I agree....but as far as improving odds on your own draws (however minor) I believe deck thinning does "work". Compare the concept of Deck-thinning to MILLING you can see some simularities....think of Scalding Tarn being Jester's Cap/Surgical Extraction.

A "one-for-zero" means you are spending one of your cards to deal with zero of theirs. This is certainly not generally considered a great result. While it may look like Glimpse the Unthinkable "destroys" Ten cards, looks can be deceiving. Those cards may have been taken out of your opponent's deck but, you didn't actually diminish their available resources. Nothing has changed from what your opponent has access to in their hand or on the battlefield. Statistically those cards could have just as easily been on the bottom of your opponent's library and the result of the game would have been the same. You probably* wouldn't play a card that just put the top five cards of your opponent's library on the bottom of their library—and that's equivalently what pure milling often is. Because there normally isnt control over what is being Milled; Extirpate is an example where the exception can be made. There can be very specific times where taking cards out of your opponent's library crumbles their strategy. Although you are taking a zero-for-one to do so, removing all your opponent's combo pieces can be worth it, in the very similar way reducing the odds of topdecking a land can be helpful....

now as far as the ratio of 20 life and paying 1 life and a deck consisting of 60 cards with 53 in the library after drawing your hand... that doesn't sound like its worth it to the average bear....but theoretically...in a world where your opponent is just a decoration and doesn't attack or interact with you in any way the deck thinning will improve your draws.

@wefal

Playing verses control decks can definitely be a pain, when I first started playing EDH Grave Pact was my arch-nemesis. Hang in there and don’t be afraid to build your decks specifically to counter the control players. Look for spells that can’t be countered and play cards with effects like Grand Abolisher or for sacrifice decks Angel of Jubilation. Jester's Cap is a good card for removing the most oppressive pieces of an opponents deck. Anyways good luck!

Thanks! I like all of these cards and will definitely add them. Quash seems like a category upgrade to Counterbore. Portent is disruption and a shuffle trigger, and Jester's Cap is a staple in quite a few things.

I love the unique deck idea! Check out Portent, Jester's Cap and Quash for other triggers for the probe... BTW cruel control calls for running Cruel Ultimatum.

I do like Sadistic Sacrament but three black may be hard to pull off. It seems like a solid card to run on the sideboard nontheless. Jester's Cap seems too slow though, paying 4 for just to get it down is too risky in the fast pace of modern

Its a hand lockdown/card blanking deck. I like it, I'd run a Sadistic Sacrament or Jester's Cap to look out those 1-of threats out of the sideboard. sadistic has the benifit of being a backup wincon if the game stalls out completely.
