Description

This is my favorite deck. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is going to come out fast, reanimating etb foodstuff to wear my opponents down. But another huge power source here are my death effects: Butcher of Malakir, Pawn of Ulamog, Falkenrath Noble , and Grim Haruspex will allow me to keep card, mana, life, and creature advantage while things like Solemn Simulacrum are repeatedly reanimated and sacced. To keep Alesha safe I use a bit of white control that works to my advantage such as Eidolon of Rhetoric which is almost harmless to me because I rarely cast more than 1 spell a turn anyway, and Stern Constable to keep mana dorks and pesky blockers pinned down while Alesha attacks. Generally I will win with etb damage, Master of Cruelties, or the Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo which can pair to make virtually infinite anything, including a deck steal with Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I've tried not to be too cookie cutter with this deck and add my own degree of combo control, please take a look, upvote and comment!

Got my cards in! Not gonna go into all the details but the outs are:ExtinctionAurelia, the WarleaderPrison TermOpen the ArmoryPilgrim's EyeGarza's AssassinGhitu SlingerNekrataalScab-Clan BerserkerRakshasa's SecretReturned CentaurAnarchist

The ins are:Masako the Humorlessday of judgementAzorius JusticiarBone ShredderDimir House GuardBig Game HunterFalkenrath NobleResolute BlademasterPawn of UlamogStinkweed ImpBalustrade SpyTreasure Hunter

I'm sure I'll get a lot of flak for taking out Aurelia, and maybe I'm overdoing the power 2 mentality for My commander, but Masako the Humorless will allow me to block with those creatures that people don't want to kill for fear of recursion like Resolute Blademaster, Stinkweed Imp and Big Game Hunter. Not to mention its flash so I could play it from my hand if needed and it's a human.Garza's Assassin was initially exciting but when I realized I could only really use it once I was immediately turned off by it. Half my life to get a murder back? No thank you.I know I just put Anarchist in, but especially with these new additions, I realized I have 5 or 6 sorceries...which are all very useful, but if I lose my mana rocks that could be a real bitch, so Treasure Hunter took its place. Feel free to debate it with me I'm open to opinions. These transmute cards that i found are extremely attractive because they'll remove themselves from my hand for 3, give me either a 4 or a 6 cost card, which I have a fair amount of, and they're useful power 2 creatures in and of themselves: Dimir House Guard gives me a sac outlet and a nice avoidance ability, and Netherborn Phalanx almost always will take 4 life at least from each opponent.Pawn of Ulamog is free mana off my creature deaths. Not colorless unfortunately but it's also token generation AND sacking for Goldnight Commander and my death triggers. Between Butcher of Malakir, Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble I could net 2 life and 1 mana off a single creature while my opponents lose 2 life and have to sac a creature. Hell yeah!This deck is not meant to be an ally deck but I have quite a few allies I could sideboard if i decided to be more aggro with my creatures and less removal.It broke my heart but I just couldn't find a place for drana, and I traded Zulaport Cutthroat for Falkenrath, so I'm down to 3 allies here. it's tempting to put in 10 or 12 that I have but I'd be taking the spots from my removal.Anyway, the decisions are made so well see how it goes! Feedback appreciated as always
