Winterblast on Divine Decree

One big problem with pillow fort: it's permanent based and when the permanents or even certain single permanents are gone, everything is ruined. Cyclonic Rift, Hurkyl's Recall or Rebuild are really bad for example.

In mardu you have not much to prevent your fort from being blown up as a whole and you can't do much about combo wins either (Ad Nauseam for example), so you should probably put some proactive control elements in the deck. Ethersworn Canonist, Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, Chains of Mephistopheles or Spirit of the Labyrinth...Smokestack and Tangle Wire would also do some nasty things

Lord_Khaine on Lethal Vapors Control

Upvoted because I love the Lethal Vapors + Pithing Needle combo. Plus the deck looks fun in general.

Other cool stuff is Smokestack + Sundial of the Infinite, where you end your turn after putting a soot counter on Smokestack but before you have to sacrifice, and slowly watch your opponent draw themselves out while they have no board state.

Lake of the Dead power at any cost! helps for explosive early games (looking at you Smokestack). Crucible of Worlds "fixes" it.

also Mana Web alongside Urborg is deliciously evil.

I dont think ive seen a background on mobile before. Do you have an example so I can steal the code?

Also, saw a goofy ass deck on EDHREC. It abuses cards like Chronatog to skip your turn so triggers happen on everyone else's turn but not yours.

Sulfuric Vortex, Manabarbs, Havoc Festival, Spellshock,Smokestack, Dovescape, Planar Chaos are some of the big cards and all you do is set up your board and skip your turn over and over.

Link if anyone is interested

Thought this was hilarious and I might make take a swing at something similar.

Winterblast on Wincons with Atraxa

2 weeks ago

Atraxa is great if you play stax yourself, that's how I use her. Don't like people trying to control you? Take control of the game yourself!

You can keep up Tangle Wire forever and double it with Gilder Bairn, make a massive impact with Smokestack (and lock the situation with Sundial of the Infinite in order to only get the positive upkeep effects you want and then end your turn)...you can easily remove all nonartifact mana sources as soon as you have some presence on the board and then just sit out the win. Mechanized Production also works well there, especially with the above mentioned cards and stuff like Sphere of Resistance.

If you want to have a look at my Atraxa list (in which you could insert your desired alternative wincons) it is Atraxa's super(un)friendly Stax

JA14732 on Come a bit closer.... [[dies]]

If you're looking to make this really zombie tribal, you'll need the zombie lords. I see Lord of the Accursed and Diregraf Colossus (somewhat), but I'd recommend adding in Death Baron (he's a bit pricey for some people), Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief and Zombie Master. If you're looking to continue the discard subtheme, then Necrogen Mists will really hurt players, forcing them to essentially skip their draw steps. Additionally, I cannot recommend Phyrexian Arena enough...unless I'm recommending Necropotence aka the Skull aka the best card draw engine in the game. It does nonbo a bit with your discard theme, but eh, it's still Necro.

Thinking about ways to get rid of Demonic Pact is harder. The card's basically a flavor choice, and not even close to good in EDH, but I guess you could try trolly shenanigans like Phyrexian Negator, Smokestack, Possessed Portal (works hilariously well with Necro), Ratchet Bomb, All Is Dust, Claws of Gix (which is likely your best option), Curse of the Cabal (which is bad), Damping Engine shenanigans, and Forbidden Ritual. Aka bad cards and, in my opinion, if you're forcing yourself to play bad cards to justify playing a bad card which is in your deck because of flavor, you likely should just cut the offending card. Up to you, however.
