Freudius, Prince and King

Legendary Creature - Human Noble

First strike

When Freudius, Prince and King enters the battlefield, target opponent creates a 4/4 blue sphinx creature token with flying and vigilance and you create a 2/2 white human noble creature token.

, Sacrifice a noble: Draw three cards and lose 3 life.

4 / 4

Oedipus is hard to create... the dramatic irony of being unable to escape your destiny, or rather, being the cause of the very destiny you try to avoid, is hard to pull off. Would love to see it if someone else has any ideas.


Raging Ox

Creature - Ox

Rampage 1 (Whenever this creature becomes blocked, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn for each creature blocking it beyond the first.)

1 / 1

Benthic Bileswimmer

Creature - Merfolk Zombie

At the beginning of your upkeep, if Benthic Bileswimmer is in your graveyard with a creature card directly above it, you may pay . If you do, return Benthic Bileswimmer to your hand.

1 / 2

Both abilities are from Alliances and I think they should make a comeback. Take one of them and make another card in its cycle. (refer to Death Spark and Balduvian War-Makers and Varchild's War-Riders for Alliances examples of these mechanics). If you choose the latter mechanic, feel free to give it a keyword name.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + Massacre Wurm is a bit janky but works. If you wanted to (though even more janky again), you could also use stuff like Varchild's War-Riders + Illness in the Ranks for more dies triggers.

Hello! Have you seen/heard of Varchild's War-Riders ? Goes well with this type of deck, even without Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (which you have!).

Love the build man.

I think I would recommend more mana rocks, swapping them for Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Varchild's War-Riders and maybe Seal of Cleansing . I love the two Varchild cards, but in my experience they don't usually work that well within the 99, sadly they don't usually do enough, specially if you draw the War-Riders and not Varchild. On the other hand, the Seal is a pretty good card and taking it out would be more of a meta call, but if your meta has a lot of artifact or enchantment decks is totally fine to play. Otherwise I would recommend leaving Aura of Silence and a tutor instead. Or Blind Obedience , that card's nuts!

Also some of the Tempt cycle could be pretty cool, like Tempt with Vengeance . Maybe Infernal Offering fits in this deck as well.

Finally, althoug a bit pricy the combo between Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers would be perfect for this deck.
