Other cards in white that deal damage to you are rare, but some colorless cards exist for the job, here all of the ones that come to mind:

The white part of the Odyssey utility threshold lands: Nomad Stadium

Grand Coliseum and City of Brass

Mana Vault and Mana Crypt are even better than usual here!

Staff of Nin xDD to deal damage to you!

Ankh of Mishra would be amazing!

Off of that staff one I though of Blasting Station ... there is some infinite combo there, right?

Jinxed Idol might not be so jinxed after all!

Ancient Tomb is amazing as well.


That is all I have for that... now for some finishers once you have the life/token engine going!

Well of Lost Dreams / Mentor of the Meek ? They would do a fair amount of work in terms of drawing.

Felidar Sovereign / Archangel of Thune - normal lifegain shenanigans.

Jazal Goldmane / Cathars' Crusade / Coat of Arms / Mirror Entity / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - normal token shenanigans.

Anointed Procession for more fun?

Divine Visitation too...

Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar would be good value

Slate of Ancestry on that note.

That's all I got... other than random anthem effects like Dictate of Heliod , but that would be too weak IMO.

I feel like Grisly Salvage should outperform Strategic Planning most of the time.

Alternative sac outlet would be nice too- Spawning Pit and Jinxed Idol are cheap iirc.

Corpsejack Menace is great, but have you considered either Hardened Scales or Winding Constrictor? If creatures are gaining more than one counter at a time, Corsejack gives the biggest reward. Undying creatures return to the battlefield with only one counter. Both of these cards have lower CMCs and provide the same reward for undying triggers.

Since this deck's average CMC is only 2.5, the mana ramp provided by Arbor Elf isn't strictly necessary. Have you considered filling that slot with another synergy, like graveyard play with Scavenging Ooze or Varolz, the Scar-Striped, token farming with Gutter Grime, or another sacrificing source AND direct opponent damage with the amazing Jinxed Idol?

This deck only has 5 cards which activate activate the ever important sacrifices, 3 Bloodflow Connoisseurs and 2 Altar's Reaps. That's not much. Adding a little extra with a few Jinxed Idols might help.

I'm not sure how many things I can recommend that will make the gimmick easier, but I can recommend things to make it more absurd.

Back in Alara/Zendikar standard, I ran a Jund-colored control and sacrifice deck that used Ooze Garden. I would take their creatures, and sacrifice them to keep their power on the battlefield under my control. I also ran cards like Zektar Shrine Expedition to make a 7/1, and I'd attack, and sac it to make an untapped 7/7 ooze. This strategy can be almost modern fast with fetchlands.

Jinxed Idol was my sideboard choice for control matchups, since they couldn't stop Khalni Garden from passing it back to them, and they cared far more about their creatures then I cared about mine (if any stuck). This might work in modern, since Death's Shadow decks thrive on dealing damage to themselves, you could hold/pass the Idol as needed.

I would say Culling Dais and Spawning Pit are the best sacrifice outlets that let you control an opponent's critter when you cast Mark of Mutiny on turn 3. Also, Wrangle hits a fair number of modern creatures.

Also if anyone has any suggestions for any more wacky/crazy/funny/annoying cards that i can add to the deck please suggest away!! especially if anyone knows of any more cards like Kudzu or Jinxed Idol cards that get passes around so everyone can join in on the fun B^)

The IB deck is a lot of fun to play. I added Kusari-Gama thinking that it could work but I then found out through play testing that as soon as I sacrifice the creature, the equipment falls off and then damage is delt but I can still trigger it as long as Shared Animosity is pumping my creatures enough to board wipe.

But in my meta there are a lot of Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Rafiq of the Many, Captain Sisay. Just heavy counter/bounce magic, board wipes, and wheels. IB does kill at least one person in a 4 man pod but I die almost immediately afterwards. My board state (when I kill that one person) usually has Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin King/Goblin Warchief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Blood Moon, Mana Web, Price of Glory, and Shared Animosity. I am very much still pleased with the deck. Just giving feed back as to what types of meta it has a hard time with (if you don't already know).

I did have a huge favor to ask of you. I love death and taxes style decks. If you swing at me we both lose stuff but you will lose more. I run Shattergang Brothers and it can be mean. I just want a new deck that mimics death and taxes. I have my eyes set on Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, and Darien, King of Kjeldor. But a Daretti, Scrap Savant deck would be awesome! I know those decks are mono colored but I am not only wanting mono colors, it just happened like that.

I was also thinking that I want to do a artifact heavy, deals damage based off cards target player has in hand over or under a certain amount like...The Rack, Ankh of Mishra, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Jinxed Idol, Jinxed Ring, Mask of Intolerance, Thumbscrews, Scalding Tongs, Iron Maiden, Misers' Cage just to name a few hahaha, massive card draw. No real intent to win through combat damage but maybe taking an extra turn or mass artifact over run. I would like my commander to be someone who can consistantly put out artifacts and so I have picked Muzzio, Visionary Architect or Padeem, Consul of Innovation (unless you know of one better). I am sorry this comment is this long. Thank you for all the help...
