Bant Crush Control with Approach of the Second Sun as an additional win con

I would swap out Void Shatter with Disallow. You hit way more options and can stop Walkers from using their ult.

Yeah, but Void Shatter exiles and with Torrential Gearhulk and Zombies running around the exile seems more relevant to the meta atm... but if you have a specific matchup or reason for Disallow then I'm all ears.

Argeaux? What do you think? Is it workable or Jank?

Zaueski If your meta is zombies I can understand using Void Shatter

I just thought of something

The biggest zombie you have to deal with has a CMC of 3.

Horribly Awry would counter every zombie spell in Standard

True... But it doesnt hit Ulamog like Scatter does... What do you think about Unsubstantiate instead of Ceremonious Rejection AgentGreen?

Theres a lot of Marvel and Zombies in my meta and I'm trying to counter both

OK this deck needs a lot of tweaks to get it to work.

These are some of the issues:

This deck has possibilities, that's for sure. It just needs to be more consistent.

Zaueski Not a good idea. Ulamog's Exile two permanent ability is a cast trigger. So even if you do stop him from casting it via Marvel; it goes back into his hand and now you run the risk of having him hard-cast it and losing two more permanents

So based on what you said Argeaux, I'm thinking I should replace Manglehorn in the side with Fragmentize and find room for a Jaddi Offshoot. Its the best one drop in my opinion since I'd lose the Clue token from a Thraben Inspector... None of the other ones really impressed me as far as usuability went... I'll definitely test Tireless Tracker instead of Glimmer of Genius, thats a good idea and helps the back up beat down plan a lot.

If you go that way always try to cast Tireless Tracker on Turn 4, then play your fourth land.

That way you get at least one Clue, because that Creature is such a removal magnet.

This deck looks sweet for the most part, but you don't have nearly enough card draw for a control deck. Tireless Tracker is good, but can just die instantly and get you no value. I would definitely run several Pull from Tomorrow here.
