Really nice deck ! In my opinion going to 37/38 lands would make this even better ;) I know, it's hard to cut... In addition, of Toxic Deluge over Languish , I suggest a Blood Moon instead of your Winter Orb . Even if winter orb could be a blast when you have the board, it could sometimes be a dead card when you'll get overunned... Blood Moon is better to shut down decks without annoying you that much.Even with tap shenaningans I ended up throwing my winter orb of my aggro/control (some would say "midrange") Kumena deck because 1/3 times it's a dead card.

@ryanstreet, So Languish is actually a pretty OK idea. I sort of like Damnation cause I like something that deals with everything. It's also not bad to have ways of killing Xantcha, so when you start making a million mana, and you kill the person with Xantcha, then she reverts back to your control - then you really want to kill her and recast her under someone else's control. Although, I guess I gotta be honest, I frequently play against The Gitrog Monster and I just need more ways to deal with it.

Languish does seem justifiable, tho... please let me know if you try it out!

Since Xantcha is a 5/5, maybe go for Languish instead of Damnation. It basically eliminates most key creatures and keeps her around to keep attacking.

You have several sub optimal card choices; Succumb to Temptation rather than Night's Whisper , Murder rather than Dismember , Victim of Night or the already mentioned Fatal Push which is premium removal.

There is a certain appeal to the Morbid keyword for this deck, be it Tragic Slip , Morkrut Banshee or Reaper from the Abyss as a backup plan. Speaking of a backup plan to the combo, maybe; Myr Superion or Lupine Prototype could work. I'd also want a board wipe like Bontu's Last Reckoning , Damnation , Languish or Ritual of Soot to clear away fast aggro or token strategies. Hope this is of help, good luck brewing your deck.

would definately add some more black card draw. Phyrexian Arena is a good start but Greed , Necropotence , Erebos, God of the Dead and other repeatable draw

You also need sweepers. Languish is a great start, but cards like Fire Covenant , Last One Standing , Blasphemous Act and Damnation will really help you out when things aren't going your way

3 more pieces of ramp would be optimal, there are many options for this so it's up to you to know what mana rocks would benefit your deck the most.

Hope this helps!

lots of good counterspell are missing Counterspell , Swan Song , Stubborn Denial

all the signet are generaly worth using to help fixing and ramping Simic Signet , Dimir Signet and Talisman of Dominance is a good mana rock

Brainstorm , Preordain , Ponder are good cantrip and in control deck are important to filter land in late game or to dig for important piece

Dark Petition and Beseech the Queen are budget tutor that help finding response

Languish kill a lot of creature and doesnt kill tas and so is Pernicious Deed which is a instant speed boardclear (really freaking good) most of the time doesnt kill tas

Wilderness Reclamation help to keep mana up for interaction

Biomancer's Familiar could be good but didnt test it yet

40 land seems a lot maybe drop to 35-36?

for cuts : Grim Flayer cost 8 buck and doesnt do real much , Exsanguinate is unfortunatelty sorcery speed and is tricky to use because it use pretty much all our mana to be worth and make it so we cant interact also it's 4 dollars, Scribe of the Mindful is bad Flood of Recollection is way better for what it does, Disappearing Act is bad Dissolve is better

SeekerofSecrets yes, I know exactly what you mean XD. Hmm, any way to shorten the loops. I get working on that.

Well, I'm not entirly sure if boardding into Scapeshift is what this deck wants. I'll have to test it out.

Hey, mind testing out my BG heartbeat list? It might play a little faster as the loops are much shorter.

P.S. If you do, remember that if Languish was Damnation , you could take infinite turn with Emrakul. Pay to Win XD
