Uba Mask Discussion
4 weeks ago
This list is super sweet! I've always wanted to use Uba Mask outside of my vintage uba stax and I think this is it. Have you made any changes to this list recently? By the way, your other decks look pretty good as well. I hope you don't mind me playing some of your lists!

Essentially its about playing hellbent with a lot of card draw but playing hellbent with immediate access to cards to cast that arent actually in hand, while damaging opponents with loss of life effects doing most of the damage. Keep their creature count low and have them discard a lot. With olivia I can ping critters to build her up quick or take control of their creatures. By keeping their critter count low, I can even turn a land into a creature and pump it up to attack with if needed. Mirage Mirror lets me copy enchamtments so i can double effects of them, or copy someone elses creature or artifact, etc.
So control the board while paper cutting opponents, with ability to hit hard a few ways too. That's the end goal. Library of leng is not really a good fit.

The past few days I looked up a lot of different Unesh builds, trying to brew something together that wouldn't break the bank. Then I coincidentally clicked on your deck as I was browsing through TappedOut. As of yet, it seems like yours is almost exactly what I was looking for! The deck looks great! :)
I only got one question: What do you think about anti-draw cards like Possessed Portal or Uba Mask, since you get to Fact or Fiction a million times anyways? Not sure about adding those and I wanted another one's opinion :)
Anyways, keep it up!

Uba Mask seems like it's questionable with madness stuff. You don't really want to play a 4 mana 2/2. If we have red now, it does turn Faithless Looting into a 2 mana draw 2 (at least I think it does). You can also flashback looting if you find yourself drawing into lands you don't need. I copied your list and made some changes because I wanted to know if it really worked and it felt like Alms of the Vein added a lot of speed. I know you're probably set on One with Nothing but Collective Brutality felt a lot stronger. You don't really want your entire hand discarded unless you have a lupine prototype which means you don't want to be using a OwN until t3. When you do, you'll have 2 mana left for madness costs, which can be Grave Scrabbler (but you probably didn't discard a creature on 1 if you're trying to discard your hand on 3 and you now have no 1-drops), a couple of unearths, or you play a 2 drop beforehand which means you only get value out of unearths. Ideally, I guess you would Temur Battle Rage or play another Lupine Prototype, or just opt for Avatar of Discord. The most frustrating thing when I was messing around with the list was not having cards to discard for avatar after trying to get a prototype running. Uba Mask doesn't really have synergy with avatar, Zombie Infestation, or the possible Alms of the Vein. Maybe think about going less all-in with One with Nothing and look at Hollow One? It also turns on the 4-attack cards and seems like it could add a lot of beef. You can also cycle it and return it later with Grave Scrabbler. I know, I know... this is probably just a casual One with Nothing list, but hey... yeah. If you can madness a Grave Scrabbler off of OwN to get something you discarded with the same OwN, it all gets a bit better but idk the ruling on that one.

@Shiek200 - I really like Trinisphere, Uba Mask, and Words of Waste! All seem pretty solid here. Also, I'd much prefer Sheoldred, Whispering One over Magus of the Abyss mostly because of sacrificing rather than destroying :P And yeah might as well add a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, why not!
@AlmightyTentacle - Forsaken Wastes and Fiery Confluence are pretty damn good here. I also agree with Toxic Deluge being the top black board wipe but with my experience with this deck, I need to keep as much life as I can lol. And I don't think I'm gonna be adding Pox anytime soon xD
