Brother of Primal Amulet,

+2 Ipnu Rivulet

Switch desert of mindfuyl for Fetid Pools

Not sure, since you dun mention it, but I guess you want to keep this budget, so no Drowned Catacomb ?


Maybe try Cryptic Serpent since you have a lot of instant / sorcery and, sometimes Minister of Inquiries can mill you if you need just one card more in graveyard.

Switch Pirate's prize for Glimmer of Genius because energy

Seems spicy! Any particular reason for the sideboard Deeproot Waters ? Without any Merfolk to trigger them, they literally do nothing. Might I suggest cutting them, moving Spell Pierce to the sideboard instead, and bringing in a few mainboard Essence Scatters in their place? With only 8 creatures in this deck, I'd be less worried about noncreature hate, and more about whatever problematic creatures your opponent could bring to the table (especially something like Bristling Hydra, which dodges every removal spell in this deck, given enough Energy). Baral, Chief of Compliance also seems somewhat questionable in this deck, seeing as you only have 6 mainboard counterspells. It might be worth trying to squeeze in some number of Minister of Inquiries (mills 6 total, chumps in a worst-case scenario) or Seeker of Insight (again, blocks well, but can also draw cards somewhat reliably) in his place.

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:

1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.

2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.

P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.

Hey jmmeyers96!

I run Disappearing Act over Cancel to double up the counters I get from Minister of Inquiries. I don't much like Censor because it has never really worked out for me and just feels like a dead draw after turn 3.

This deck still has issues:

  • You need to run at least 24 Lands. Remember the goal is to cast Fleet Swallower ASAP. To do that you can't afford to be mana screwed.

  • Speaking of which, since it is your main win con, you need a playset (four copies) of Fleet Swallower.

  • You now have too MANY Creatures, and not enough Mill spells. The Creatures are only meant to provide a bit of Ramp support.

  • You need as well as in the early game. You are overly weighted towards in your mana base.

I would make your Lands look like this:

4x Drowned Catacomb
3x Fetid Pools
4x Ipnu Rivulet
7x Island
6x Swamp

and your Creatures look like this:

2x Dire Fleet Hoarder
4x Fleet Swallower
3x Minister of Inquiries
2x Ruthless Knave
2x Sailor of Means

then add more Mill spells, as there should be some spaces left.
