Temple of Deceit Discussion

MathieuG89 on Casual Weekend Zombie Deck

Hey multimedia,

Thank you for taking the time to write down all those suggestions.

I did have a lot of Basic lands, I replaced eight of them with Dimir Guildgate, Temple of Deceit, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh, Temple of Malice, Crumbling Necropolis, Vivid Marsh and Barren Moor. I also cut Mycosynth Wellspring < Gem of Becoming and Manalith < Fellwar Stone which I think are superior.

I followed your advice and replaced a few removals and less good board wipes. Sudden Death < Doom Blade, Consuming Vapors < Dreadbore, Grasp of Darkness < Cemetery Recruitment, Extinguish All Hope < Victimize and In Garruk's Wake < Syphon Flesh.

Traded a couple of cards I didn't like in favor of different ones such as the one you suggested Waste Not < Slave of Bolas and Dread Summons < Extract from Darkness

Finally replaced a couple of creatures in favor of zombies like Harvester of Souls < Vengeful Pharaoh and Consuming Aberration < Drakestown Forgotten.

Still tweaking a few things left and right, let me know what you think. Thanks !

If you feel the value you get from Temple of Deceit is that important, you could also try Halimar Depths? Or is the value in scry the option of putting the card on the bottom?

@ToolmasterOfBrainerd while what you say is true it allows for flexibility and doesn't take away from the deck at all. My Mana base is already covered and an urborg let's us cast dismember for free (no life lost) in some scenarios as well as comboing with the Sundering Titan I guess my question is not if putting urborg in follows the "Mono U Tron" but rather is the addition of urborg+ and island better than 2 Temple of Deceit

Hey all, you might know me as the creator of the Mono U Tron deck If you hate people... Play this deck (not that latest evolution of the deck... I have yet to update it.) Just coming to you guys with a couple questions about the land base. I'm running 24 lands as of now 2 of which are Temple of Deceits. Apart from that I have 1 oboro, Castle in the clouds and 6 Islands as my other blue sources. The value that I get from scrying with the temples is insanely underrated however I was wondering if you guys thought it would be a good idea to change those out for a 1 of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and an island. This would allow me to fetch for urborg with Expedition Map in order to cast Dismember with no pain as well as letting the urborg synergize well with Sundering Titan (I can potentially kill another one of their lands.) Does this seem worth it? Also what about instead of the temples running some combination of either Drowned Catacomb, Sunken Hallow , and/or Darkslick Shores. Please advise. Thanks IzzetFanatic

Here is what I came up with:


Reason / Believe

Temple of Deceit

Also, I appreciate that Reason / Believe isn't very good, however, I think that it is better than some draw spells.

Sorry, ran out of room. Anyways, I'd add Temple of Deceit, Choked Estuary, Drowned Catacomb, and Sunken Hollow. You might want to pick up a few copies of Grafdigger's Cage just in case you play against Living End or another graveyard abusing deck. Don't add white.

If you're looking at getting big dudes onto the board, you can't go past Quicksilver Amulet. Since you're using a lot of the Theros Gods, Dragon Arch will also work well. In addition, Cryptic Gateway would work as well for your gods. Also while it will take a bit of time, Aether Vial is likely to serve you well.

Also, if you intend to use the tap tri-lands, Amulet of Vigor is a requirement. And if you put that in, go for the Theros temple Scry lands: Temple of Abandon, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Epiphany, Temple of Malady, Temple of Malice, Temple of Mystery, Temple of Plenty, Temple of Silence, Temple of Triumph

They also fit the god theme of your deck.

If you'd like, take a look at my version of this deck and see if you can find anything there to help:Pantheon of Ages Past
