Big Black Creatures and a little bit of control

Standard*

adamgreeney Score: Unrated


Description

This is a constantly evolving black/blue deck. The idea is to control long enough to get out my game ending cards, Nicol, Grislebrand, etc. A lot of people are running huge green decks now, so having small deathtouch drops and a number of indestructible creatures helps keep them at bay. Stuffy Doll reflecting damage is a great bonus as well. Most land is dual colored, while Gilded Lotus and Gem of Becoming assures that I have enough mana to pull Nicol when i need it.

Why so many one of each card? Surely this would be massivly better for consitancy and a proper mana curve?

Ok, i tinkered some. Some of it was me being an idiot with removing things when I changed them.

The one drops with the Legendary creatures is mostly due to being able to get them. Same with Increasing Ambition , but i plan on adding more of that. With things like Ponder , Index and Rune-Scarred Demon i can usually search for what I want creature wise. Vessel of Endless Rest helps add to that as well.

A lot of what you see adds to mana too. Vessel of Endless Rest , Plague Myr , and Gilded Lotus help out a lot, adding Gem of Becoming assures I can always have enough land. Also, Phylactery Lich NEEDS artifacts to survive, and while having him and Stuffy Doll out can prevent any damage to me, it's nice to have other options so i can keep him in play.

But i am going to look over and see what I can add/subtract to make sure I can be more consistent.
