Phenax, God of Deception has an interesting combination with Consuming Aberration.

I don't think your choice of planeswalkers work well in this deck, if anything you need to either remove Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver , or remove both Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Elspeth, Sun's Champion . I would personally remove Sorin and Elspeth and replace them with Phenax, God of Deception and a couple of defenders like Wall of Frost so that you're not only waiting until late game but actually pressuring them with the mill ability. The current planeswalker status here is basically if you play Sorin first he's pretty much useless without Elspeth on the field to generate threats for his +1 and Ashiok doesn't fit in well with either of them (yes i get that you can play one of their dead things and buff it slightly with Sorin, but that's a waste of Sorin's capabilities in my opinion as the most creatures of your own you will play at any given time with this deck will be 4, not including tokens). tl;dr replace Elspeth and Sorin with Phenax and some Wall of Frost

Phenax, God of Deception would be a solid add-in.

I really like this kind of graveyard interaction and found that Phenax, God of Deception interacts sooo well with Sidisi that I have decided to try my hand at making a deck that can abuse it. The problem is I am horribad at building so I'd appreciate you checking my build out and dropping some advice! You def have a +1 from me though!

Phenax, God of Deception is very strong in Duel, and that is all I play (though not competitively). I feel like Oona is much more suited to multiplayer than Phenax is, and infinite mana combos are something I really like, but are useless in my current deck as I have no outlets (I guess I could add x casting creatures or Mind Grind , but meh...they feel underwhelming in Duel).

I've actually playtested this deck against my own before, and your deck won almost every game. Competitive Phenax decks I'm sure would be much stronger than mine, but because they are slow and you are fast, I don't think you'll have too much trouble if you see them while playing in Duel events.

I giggled a little when you said "If anyone read this post up to this point".

Congrats on your placing and the fetch! I'm using Phenax, God of Deception as my commander, but have wanted to try Oona ever since you changed this deck to be piloted by her.

The Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void combo is one of my favorites.

Good luck at future tourneys, and I'm looking forward to reading your reviews of them.

I can agree with that, a Hero's Downfall should take out most planeswalkers. I'd probably want to run 1-2 Murderous Cut as it would serve as another Disciple of Deceit target for Phenax, God of Deception .

Because here you have Villainous Wealth as another wincon, only 2 Phenax, God of Deception should be fine :)

Ooh brainwave, have you thought of Genesis Hydra as another thing to sink your mana into? Price
