Drowned Catacomb and Watery Grave would speed up the deck a lot.

Sorry, one last thing:

If you plan on running Dismember, why not throw in some Watery Graves or Drowned Catacombs? The loss of 4 life may be necessary in the right situations, but if you could have a shot at avoiding that damage altogether, I would go for it.

This deck hath made me quite moist.

I shall give you my opinion as I have previously had. Hopefully you shall appreciate it.

I'd like to begin by saying that the creeping tar pits may be a bit excessive, due to your having four mutavaults and also the tar pit not being a faerie kind of makes me not want you to play.

4x Island, 4x Polluted Delta, 4x Watery Grave, 3x Swamp and 2x Drowned Catacomb will round off the basic-related landbase, that is fourteen.

2x Darkslick Shores will be your scarland section.

4x Mutavault and 1x Tectonic Edge are your tech-lands.

Sword and Skull are good tech choices. I like the inclusion of Ashiok, but consider playing Jace Architect because of the power he presents against token decks.

The creature section is perfect. A good 12.

TBH this deck is really good. I would cut a cryptic for a fourth Remand.

I'm looking to get another trade or two through before I close down shop for a few weeks while I move into my apartment. I want to have all trades resolved before I leave on Aug. 13. I will resume trading about a week later.

There are a couple things I'll trade for:

  1. Promos for my Standard and Modern decks. Namely, Treasure Mage, Disdainful Stroke, and possibly Dissolve.
  2. Cheap staples. I have a Four binder and it looks so good when I have playsets of staples. Looking for things like Lightning Bolt, Terminate, etc. Cheap stuff.
  3. Counter magic! I'm going to collect all counter magic, starting with every Standard legal counterspell. I'll take older ones too!

I am also looking for a Steam Vents and possibly Watery Grave. I have unlisted stuff for these.

Even if you don't have anything above, don't hesitate to propose something! Always open to looking through binders.

I really don't think you need 4x Tropical Islands, especially when you're playing Brainstorm and want more shuffle effects via fetches. Not to mention, you're playing Deathrite Shaman.

4x Enlightened Tutor also feels a bit much, especially when you already have Intuition and it means playing Savannah instead of basics. You probably want Thoughtseize, more lands, or more copies of other cards in the deck.

I'd probably play a land base that looks more like:

Remember, you're trying to do stuff like cast Deathrite Shaman turn one, Baleful Strix on two, and Aluren on three. None of that is going to happen if you get Wasteland'd by some aggro deck that Swords to Plowshares'd your Deathrite Shaman.

A lot of this is applicable to your budget version as well, which is playing too many copies of Watery Grave and Breeding Pool.

Thoughtcast seems pretty good, yeah. If you have a little bit of extra money to throw at the deck, here are my thoughts..

im already working on making it mono black XTechNinjaX, it works alot better i cut down the kolaghan's commands for Darkness and Plunge into Darkness i might keep the Watery Graves because i might put Diregraf Captain back into the deck due to the amount of sacrifice outlets i have in the deck he will do a similair effect as Blood Artist but the 3 mana is why he isnt as good so i will consider the latter. i also did put the Grimgrin, Corpse-Born in i will update the deck within the next 2-3 days so you can see the updated list.

Hello! I don't really know what you're trying to do with this deck lol but I'd definitely recommend swapping out the Opulent Palaces for a combination of Watery Grave, Overgrown Tomb, and Breeding Pool. It'll help speed up your deck, and if you can add fetches, that'll be even better.

Also, no Breaching Hippocamp? XD
