At the brink of death [Budget]

Standard Combo W/B (Orzhov)

rushtowait Score: 2


Description

Undying/Blinking deck for maximum irritation.

Some examples:

Cloudshift ing Fiend Hunter for last minute creature control, Undying Evil on Fiend Hunter too to sac for Demonlord of Ashmouth or even flashing Unburial Rites to summon Typhoid Rats . Emancipation Angel would be used to return creatures with Undying so that can urm, die again. So the 3 major win-con cards are Cloudshift , Unburial Rites and Undying Evil since they trigger the ETB abilities of the creatures in the deck.

I like this so much it inspired to make one similar but not as budget, though still not too pricey. deck:angels-vs-demons-1. Also wondering the reason for Barter in Blood over Bone Splinters ? or is it just a kill more of his creatures (even if they have indestructible) thing?

Barter in Blood is more for anti-hexproofing I guess. And since there's Fiend Hunter for me to keep my important creatures from getting sacrificed, it's a pretty decent card I'd say.

Cool, makes sense.

A few people actually run Sigarda, Host of Herons , so you may want to consider adding some kind of clone effect to get rid of her (Clone , Phyrexian Metamorph , Phantasmal Image , Evil Twin , Cryptoplasm , etc). Clones also interact favorably when they copy undying dudes.

Now tell us, what it does!

Granted it looks cool. especially given that i love the very idea of a budget deck.

Well, it's a control deck mostly so it's kinda hard to have a specific win-con or specific way on how it runs but I include a short description, hope it clear things up.

As for Sigarda, Host of Herons , I guess that only answer to her for this deck currently is to just ramp her in the face with Demonlord of Ashmouth or a nibble from Typhoid Rats :D (that's why I like Unburial Rites ... dat flashback )

I'm not a huge fan of the typhoid rats. They don't really work with the blink/bounce thing now that damage doesn't use the stack - I'd prefer something like Ravenous rats. Then again, the only 1 drop with a ETB ability is the less-than-sexy Cathedral Sanctifier . It's not really a control deck (you only have 8 removal spells + Fiend Hunter s), but I really see it as an aggro deck with a lot of synergy and mini-combos.

If you want to add more cards, I'd say dropping the Unburial Rites and Demonlord to 3-ofs. Gravecrawler s would be fantastic in this deck, but a full playset would take this out of budget territory. Otherwise, it looks really good. Good luck!
