Triskaidekaphobia is awesome with the tree.

When you have cards that require a lot of mana to play, like Chandra, Flamecaller, Liliana, Death's Majesty, Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, and Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver you've got to have a way to stall the board until they hit the field.

Unfortunately having a lot if little Creatures won't be enough.

Your Opponent will be able to trade with a lot of them.

The ones s/he can't will just be picked off by destruction spells.

You're better off playing a Control strategy, where most of your spells Counter or kill your Opponent's Creatures.

Those spells need to very mana efficient eg. Essence Scatter, Negate, Disallow, Fatal Push, Grasp of Darkness, Murder, Magma Spray, Harnessed Lightning, Incendiary Flow, etc.

Fevered Visions is excellent in that type of deck as it gives you draw. Control decks do NOT want to run out of cards.

You would take out everything except 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and MAYBE 3x Tree of Perdition.

2x Dragonmaster Outcast would move to the Sideboard.

All the current Sorceries would come out, too.

You would not want seven Enchantments. That is taking up too many spaces needed for Instants.

I know it's in there to interact with the Tree, but you'd take out 3x Triskaidekaphobia.

Take a look at Destroy the Gatewatch for an example.

You want to focus on two colours and SPLASH for the third. To do this have cards hitting the field later in the game, which require the third colour.


The other way you could go would be to take out most of the Planeswalkers and Sorceries and give this deck more of a Zombie / Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia focus.

You would drop it down to Mono-Black Cards, with all swamps and 3/4x Westvale Abbey  Flip.

Maybe a couple of Blighted Fen.

You'd add Instants that I mentioned above.

I think that could be a VERY interesting style of deck.

You could borrow some of the ideas from #1 Black Zombies.


Once you've decided on a more cohesive theme, and adjusted the deck, let me know and I'll take another look at it.

Hope that helps a bit.

If you're running Tree of Perdition, I suggest also running Triskaidekaphobia for the lols. Also, there are two other sweet infinite mill combos besides Mind crank and Guildmage/Ascension that are worth considering. Illusionist's Bracers + Tidewater Minion allows you to infinitely untap creatures you can use to mill your opponents. Deadeye Navigator can go infinite with Altar of the Brood if you have any creature that untaps lands on entering, like Cloud of Faeries + Palinchron + Peregrine Drake . The combo can also work if you have Sage's Row Denizen instead of the Altar since all of these are blue creatures. A struggle I had with my own deck is the lack of tutors. Since you're in UB, you can conveniently use any of the Transmute cards that can find your combo pieces if you feel like turning your deck into a more combo based one. Dimir Infiltrator + Muddle the Mixture + Shred Memory can all find you the Guildmage and Mindcrank (even Cloud of Faeries and Illusionist's Bracers if you end up running them) and Dizzy Spell can find Ascension and Altar. Another sweet card to consider is Disciple of Deceit which basically gives you a free Transmute on any non-land card in your hand whenever it untaps, allowing you to, ideally, search for anything. Now I don't know what your meta is like, but regardless board wipes are a must. Running your typical black board wipes like Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Decree of Pain, In Garruk's Wake, and Black Sun's Zenith is fine but you need ways to get rid of non creature permanents, a struggle for black. Cyclonic Rift + Nevinyrral's Disk are good for this.

I think Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia combo would be hilarious in this deck.

Wanna piss someone off? I see you have Tree of Perdition.. Why not combo it with Triskaidekaphobia for an instant win?

hoardofnotions Triskaidekaphobia is about making other people lose, not me win. It's just some fun extra thrown in. Your suggestions are cool, but they don't end up working out, as I can't win at 13 life.

If you want to win with Triskaidekaphobia look at adding Vizkopa Confessor or Phyrexian Processor for the lolz.

Id cut down on kambal mainboard because its legendary, maybe move 2 to sb. I ran a Triskaidekaphobia, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and Tree of Perdition gimmick deck that ran 3 kambals. Definitely sucks sitting on dead legendaries in your hand because theyre in play.
