I’ve got 2 brews i’m very proud of.

The first is what is now known as Hardened Scales - i had a deck almost identical to its current rendition before it became an actual archetype. It felt pretty awesome seeing something i’d brewed up getting run by the more competitive community.

The second is a deck i’ve clunked together by the name of “Esper Taxrazi” (link below). It’s largely based of existing taxes strategies, except adding in blue for more control options and oppression. The whole idea stemmed from wanting to heavily abuse Wasteland Strangler .

All the processor cards from BFZ like Wasteland Strangler like exiled stuff and also a few creatures can be repeatedly cast from exile if you are exiling your own cards like Torrent Elemental , Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge . Happy gathering!

Try cutting 1 Spellskite , Wall of Omens , and Ranger-Captain of Eos to fit in the last copy of Wasteland Strangler and a set of Flickerwisp . Wisp lets you reuse a Deputy or Tidehollow Sculler that you extracted with Strangler, and if you have >1 Tidehollow/Deputy you can flicker the Strangler. It also flies which makes it a decent finisher.

I don't know if you ever play mono W D&T at all, but in case you don't there are other tricks it can do as well, like flickering a blocker in stalled boards, fogging attackers, flickering their lands to stall, protecting your creatures, etc.

Hey! I don't know you, but I think Wasteland Strangler is a A+ in the deck. It lets you « kill » from exile the creatures you blinked away. Is there room for that?

Otherwise, I think your deck is marvelous. Great job!

Great list, I've been trying to brew something similar. What are your thoughts on Tidehollow Sculler and/or Wasteland Strangler as additional ways to abuse the flicker/exile subtheme? I'm also tempted to try 2x Snapcaster in something like this just for value's sake.

Not sure Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is worth it over including the full playset of Wasteland Strangler - mainly because of the ledgendary rule, and that she’s useless without Queller in play.

Why not Aether Vial ? Seems there’s some value to be made there?

With all of this Ingest, I think you're looking for Wasteland Strangler and Oblivion Sower .

If you want to last long enough to cast your big baddies, I'd recommend going a more control route with this deck. I've built a modern model in esper that's pretty consistent. I'd recommend cards like Wasteland Strangler , Ulamog's Nullifier , and Transgress the Mind or Inquisition of Kozilek that latter doesn't exile, but it's a turn one drop. If you put in a playset of each (choosing one of the hand hate cards), you can get rid of most of your two-drop creatures for more consistent play. Also, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is the perfect eldrazi exile companion.
