Natalbee on Gardeners' Windy Curse

Just posting this real quick before I leave --

I think that a graveyard strategy could be really interesting. If that's where you want to go, then I would definitely recommend Search for Azcanta  Flip to fill your graveyard and dig for your combo pieces. Demon of Dark Schemes would also be amazing, because with a Panharmonicon out, all other creatures get -4/-4 (including the ones you gave them with Dowsing Dagger  Flip -- hello, Energy!), and he can reanimate any creature put into the graveyard this way - even if that means reanimating Restoration Specialist to sacrifice and grab the Dagger and play it, then reanimate Specialist again :P Or just a Hostage Taker to safely swing in with your 5/5 flyer.

Keep me updated on this thing. I'm excited :D

I had just written a really long comment, but I guess TappedOut is randomly down for maintenance and I lost it... anyways, here were some of my recommendations:

Authority of the Consuls (in place of Kinjalli)
Restoration Specialist
Sequestered Stash
Inventors' Fair
Fumigate / Settle the Wreckage
Hostage Taker

This deck looks really fun, and I hope it works as well as I want it to :)

If you don't know what to sideboard for Solemnity, I'd take out a Gate to the Afterlife, a Minister of Inquiries and 2 Restoration Specialist. That way your game plan isn't hurt too much and you still get your Solemnities.

It's been a long while since I've updated this deck. However, in all my new set scanning, I'd say that Axis of Mortality is the insane jank that this setup yearns for. Thank you for the updates, Rabid_Wombat and Suprek.

CynicalDog - I dig the idea behind Pestilent Souleater, I'll see if I can find a slot to test it with!

I've also considered toying with the following cards as recursion/removal/draw replacement:

If anyone has any additional thoughts regarding their own iterations of this deck, don't hesitate to provide your own suggestions.

I really appreciate your tips demonicgrizzly! Until I get my hands on the cards you mentioned, I've tried to make some changes that hopefully make the deck a bit better.

I was thinking about a combo between Restoration Specialist and Gonti's Machinations. So Attune with Aether and Servant of the Conduit would be included. Dunno if it would work...

Hi Kittus!

Nice to hear that im not the only one to get this potential ;)

Thanks, i did think that Restoration Specialist but came to decision, that its not efective enought. No battlecry (Hearthstone) :) when it comes to battlefield. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip does almost same as Driven / Despair, and you get to use Driven / Despair from your grave and opponent loses his cards.Instead i thought these cards: Bloodcrazed Paladin, not enought consistant i think, but has flash whits helps to make more effective blocks

Dread Wanderer, Too fast, i almost always got more then 1 card on hand. And its not worth to return with Renegade Rallier

Miasmic Mummy (im really serious with this one), helps you get instantly on turn 2 same thing as Restoration Specialist grave dumped creature, now i just get to choose, and have 2/2 on board at end of it.Thou Restoration Specialist does help return Panharmonicon and trigger revolt.Revolt isn't really a issue i think, its overall draw i think. You have to kind of get good peaces to get it overwhelm your opponent.Scrapheap Scrounger have not tested yet, might be good?

Is this a Tempo Deck? What you think.


Ps. Those are just suggestions and my thoughts. You should try enchanment version. Give me link after you done :)

Hi Jassukka1983!

It's funny because the idea of your deck has been in my head for the last two days but wasnt able to gather a good list. It looks like you have managed to find a good balance for the deck, I like it!

What do you think about Arguel's Blood Fast in order to have more card draw and a way to trigger revolt when it turns into Temple of Aclazotz?

I also considered Restoration Specialist as it can easily tirgger revolt and can bring back Renegade Map, maybe could find an enchantment synergy?
