Baral's pact with the dead

Modern Midrange Tokens W/U/B (Esper)




A deck idea of me around the exciting card 4xAEthermage's Touch and with early stabilisation (potential to play against aggro decks) together with 4xLingering Souls and 4xBaral, Chief of Compliance who makes our spells very cheap (for example touch & lingering). 3xObzedat, Ghost Council is amazing, because this creature card gets around of the drawback from AEthermage's Touch. The fun and interaction comes with 3xJudge Unworthy and 4xMystic Speculation, the scry 3 effect is our tool to dig for the bombs correctly with AEthermage's Touch. So its actually possible to play in the best scenario with baral a T3 Emrakul. 3xRestoration Angel is here to get rid of the drawback from Touch too and for other tricks. 1xMerchant Scroll is here to tutor mainly a AEthermage's Touch or for Mana Leak. 1xEmrakul, the Aeons Torn his annihilator 6 is probably enough for us for one turn ;) he is for fun in this deck, just uncool in our starting hand, you can replace him easyly. 1xElesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is just great against creatures and with the spirit tokens. 2xLinvala, the Preserver is great for different situations with her etb effect and great recovery and hardcast playable. 1xAngel of Serenity her etb effect, gives some air for your win. 1xBlade Splicer just ebcause his nice etb effect and its early playbale too. 3xPath to Exile, just because its modern. Dont forget AEthermage's Touch is an instant spell and our goal is to play the spell in our opponents declaring attackers step, so in the best scenario we block something just dead and later we can swing at least one time with the creature. The mana curve is just fine here. For me its clear the deck would be probably better with cards like Snapcaster Mage and Goryo's Vengeance or baby jace, but these cards are so much more money. My huge goal is that you guys have fun with this idea and i need to playtest this and i will update the list when its needed.

Here is an alternative version of this deck idea from me, probably more consistent: A special Touch

Great deck! What about Angel of Serenity? In place of the sphinx, maybe?

And you could add something like Galepowder Mage to bounce your ETB creature ;)

+1 from me

@Aleboth93 Thx for your reply and suggestions ! Indeed, i will include Angel of Serenity instead of the sphinx, i missreaded her drawback Galepowder Mage is a bit an annoying 4 drop without etb effect, but yea when he stays he is a great flicker support. I need more playtesting.

Yeah if you feel like needing more flicker, you can go for a Flickerwisp, a Restoration Angel or a simple Cloudshift :) Nice idea anyway ;)
