What I would do to add a little bit of consistency is add a single Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Also I would try turning your Abrade and Bedevil into Kolaghan's Command they are easier to cast and have 4 modes. I would turn Dreadbore and Kalitas into Murderous Rider so you have three copies. Maybe turn the Ritual of Soot into Languish and through them in the sideboard and fill them with another Thoughtseize and Murderous Rider . I would also turn the Search for Azcanta  Flip into Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip.

Best of luck to you sir and I hope you dominate your OGS.

Hi there.

I'm working on a Sultai or Golgari version of Seasons Past myself. It was a blast to play back in Standard. A few suggestions:

Good luck!

Fatal Push isn't amazing if you can't trigger revolt yourself, but a few copies still goes a long way. Most strong removal has a downside, but it's still a must-have against aggro imo. Besides you do have targets for removal from the opponent, so you will get the revolt trigger at times.

Cry of the Carnarium is good outside of Aristocrats matches too ;) Unless the aggro decks go big like Hardened Scales and Gruul, in which case Languish and Ritual of Soot are better.

Drown in the Loch can definitely be awkward without ways to fill their yard early on.

Hey MrBoombastic!

Thanks for those suggestions.

  • I will really take Languish in consideration and Cry of the Carnarium if in my local meta Aristocrats is really in.
  • As you said, I was trying to brew a deck with Murderous Rider . Maybe cutting 1 or 2 Drown in the Loch as it is a "situational" card. I've been trying some hands with the simulator, and I found having those cards in hand without many discarting/removal cards.
  • Will totally look for Fatal Push but the thing is that this deck doesn't haves any triggers for the Revolt, and if a 3 cmc enters the battlefield, it will stay until another removal comes.

Hi there.

Fun idea you have here. Loved playing Thief of Sanity , when it was viable in GRN Standard.

A few suggestions:

  • Bontu's Last Reckoning is quite horrible here, as you will technically take a turn off when you play it early, giving those aggro decks lots of time to rebuild. I'd play something like Languish instead. If you think you'll get run over by some hyper-aggro, how about Cry of the Carnarium ? Incidentally it also deals with most Aristocrats decks, as they don't get any on-death triggers.

  • Murderous Rider is mostly better than Hero's Downfall . Both because of the added value after you remove something, but also because it can be a creature in a pinch or when you have no targets (which does come up occasionally). I know it doesn't tigger God-Eternal Kefnet , but that's a small price to pay.

  • Fatal Push can do a lot against those pesky aggro decks. I'd cut some number of Cast Down and/or Tyrant's Scorn to make room for them.

Good luck!

From a flavour stance, I am not overly fond of All Is Dust being in here. There are plenty of Damnation / Final Judgment / Languish effects that do not carry the lore baggage of Eldrazi.

Frenzy Sliver seems like it could be fairly terrifying with the token generation, without being so powerful as to make victory impossible.

Lymph Sliver is another that creates a relatively annoying, but not game-breaking effect.

Sidewinder Sliver and Toxin Sliver are pretty scary, making block choices more important and deadly.

Hooray for Slivers!

Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is Far too slow. I'd drop the Startled Awake  Flips, the Traumatize s are wayyy to slow. How about Compelling Argument and Tome Scour instead. A full four Into the Story is crucial to refill your hand, and maybe a single copy of Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time is worth it here? Fatal Push is definitely worth it here. Mind Grind is kinda weird. It doesn't tend to work as well as you think it will. Consuming Aberration is not the card for this deck. I'd add in some sweepers, maybe 3 Languish ?

Collective Brutality reverses the problem you have with Thoughtseize while also providing disruption. Merfolk Secretkeeper is good in this deck. The full four Breaking/Enterings are probably the right move here. Instead of Cyc Rift , how about Languish or Ritual of Soot ? Dissolve is both worse than Sinister Sabotage and Didn't Say Please . If you're really fixated on the Wight and Abberation plan, go ahead, but a few more sweepers could make this deck into more of a control deck. Right now it's leaning more towards agro-mill. If that's what you want, consider Vantress Gargoyle . Otherwise, I'd throw in a playlet of Fatal Push and ways to refill your hand, such as a playlet of Into the Story , an under appreciated yet powerful card in this deck.
