  • Após a temporada de trocas de cartas, essa é lista atualizada do Pox. Mudanças foram feitas para encaixas o Phyrexian Obliterator e Bitterblossom , que talvez sejam melhor no side, mas a vida é curta para jogar com carta ruim.

  • Com Bitterblossom, resolvi economizar nos pontos de vida e optei por Fatal Push e Inquisition of Kozilek . Como já citado, o pacote de descartes e removals pontuais são muito dependentes do meta, mas se essas foram a escolha do Reid Duke, não pode estar errado.

  • Obliterator é uma máquina contra Raio, e acho que a combinação com Bitterblossom, que é um terror contra remoções pontuais, dá opções contra qualquer oponente no jogo 1. Bitterblossom e Night of Souls' Betrayal não combinam, ou joga uma ou outra.

  • Optei por duas Wastelands main, e dois terrenos para substitui-las no side, principalmente contra Xu e Chico. Se um dia acompanhar os caras na lojinha subo para as 4 Wastelands de verdade.

  • A base de mana é uma dúvida. Com os Pântanos Nevados, resolvi testar Dead of Winter e Withering Wisps no side, mas normalmente são 12 pântanos nevados, e pode ser pouco para o sweeper.

  • Sideboard bem especulativo. Além dos dois terrenos, coloquei cartas variadas, para testá-las. Como não há combos e estratégias que usam o cemitério, sobra espaço. Se na lojinha a ideia for Burn, Lands e Miracles, aí muda tudo.

  • Uma ideia para decidir as cartas do side é ir de trás para frente: ao invés de pensar o que quero colocar, vejo o que quero tirar do deck e escolho cartas para o lugar.

Running Oros the avanger as the commander but the point of the deck is to slap down stuff like Pyrohemia, [[pestilence] and maybe Withering Wisps if I add snow lands, along with Repercussions and such and just start to burn the board.

My old list just seemed a little all over the place so I think I want to cut back on the white a little bit, but keep it in for tutors and maybe some protection. I also want to cut back on the redundant abilitys like multiple copies of "players cant gain life" since life gains isnt a HUGE part of my meta, but its always a nice include.

This is my old list and right now im a little bit of a slump. I know I probably want something like Heartless Hidetsugu, Mogis, God of Slaughter because they can be pretty nice, not to mention that hidetsugu can combo well with either the doublers or Wound Reflection. Im not sure if I should put in Spitemare/Stuffy Doll but if Im doing board wide ticks of damage, they might not be bad (plus stuffy doll will make sure the "no creature" clause never triggers till it gets exiled)

Withering Wisps is good, I'd move it from the maybeboard to main deck.

Thanks for the suggestion,Namico10!

I would slot in Withering Wisps, but unfortunately, it was never released as a common. The Snow-Covered Swamps and Drift of the Dead could be replaced, but Ice Age is very dear to me... I just can't bring myself to cut them.

Again, thanks for the suggestion! Maybe they'll reprint Wisps as a common one day.

Because you got the Snow-Covered Swamp in here, maybe think about putting Withering Wisps in as another Pestilence body or even a possible replacement?

I have a suggestion or two if you're willing to give them that ol' click on the green check mark if you like them.

-Strionic Resonator: Double search is real nice. Plus if you have Ob Nixilis, Unshackled out, whenever they are forced to search, pay and then you've just made them lose 26 life. Two rounds of that and they're dead.
-Darksteel Plate: Not extremely needed, however I feel with cards like Pestilence and Withering Wisps, it may be needed to keep Maralen alive, or whatnot.
-Extraplanar Lens: Extremely good in any mono-coloured deck, especially if you're already doing Snow lands.
-Thespian's Stage: You may be confused. One, can turn into an exact copy of a Snow-Covered Swamp and gain benefit from Extraplanar Lens or turn into a Cabal Coffers. About to lose Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth from a land destruction deck? Nope, pay and tada, all your lands are still Swamps!
-Eon Hub: Notice how you don't have any "upkeep" cards? Want to control what your opponents get, thus not gaining any sort of draw on their upkeeps? Just a funny and unique way to control opponents who utilize their upkeep heavily.
-Ward of Bones: Then if you really want to be that kind of person. I only suggest this for the want of this being a control deck. Or if you don't mind sacrificing, Damping Engine is a relatively better(?) trade than Ward of Bones.
