Hi bro, I like your deck but I don't get the 50 Shadowborn Apostle's, if you dont have any demons, there are two that comes to my mind right now: Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. With any of these you can come a step closer to your combo. =)

I don't get it.

"First, I'll Fatal Push my Shadowborn Apostle. Now, I Secret Salvage it, and get 193 in hand. I'll sacrifice the six I have in play to their ability and fail to find anything. Now, I'll play my Battle of Wits, and then discard 186 Apostles on my cleanup step."

How is it funny?

I play a Shadowborn Apostle deck and find we have alot of the same cards. Although my guys are cheaper than the rats and I am always trying to kill mine off. But there are a couple cards I find handy and you might too:

Desperate Research - I found this works great in my Apostles.

Westvale Abbey  Flip - I dont know how often you cycle through rats, but this might be nice.

Dictate of Erebos - A second flashing Grave Pact might be nice.

A good one for your Demon theme would be the Demon of Wailing Agonies, maybe also Shadowborn Demon since it goes with your Shadowborn Apostles. Love the deck though!

I've had a deck similar to this for a little while, more creature based however and demon/shadowborn apostle tribal. Xathrid Necromancer and Rotlung Reanimator are good extra sac trigger utility for Shadowborn Apostle.

@mykul, Good catch on the tutoring Walking Ballista with Tolaria West. So far the manacanon has worked out really well in the deck and has moved to the mainboard in place of Crystal Shard.

As for Declaration in Stone, I'm not a huge fan of giving my opponents cards. I agree that it is much better for dealing with mass tokens (Avenger of Zendikar comes to mind!) but I think I'd rather rely on my wrath effects. Also, I have never personally dealt with any Shadowborn Apostle decks, but if your goal is to stunt the Apostles, this will really only give them more cards which will be more Apostles... not sure if this is the answer you should be looking for. Instead, I would sideboard in my Linvala, Keeper of Silence.

Why do you play Shadowborn Apostle if you don't play a single demon?

What, no Razor Boomerangs? That has to be corrected.

Also need a handful of Shadowborn Apostles to go with those Rats. Lets say 60 of those.

Oh and we need a demon for them to fetch. Mold Demon sounds good.
