Description

So it finally happened, the engine that this deck was...is gone.

It has evolved into a creature control deck, lots of removal, spell recursion and grindy battling until one of my planeswalkers can take over the game.

Comments and suggestions are welcome, I don't run many counters because they don't fit my playstyle very well. I'll be looking for a couple Master of Cruelties in the next few weeks to add for some endgame.

Pre-Rotation — Aug. 19, 2013

SO...Tournament tomorrow.

Probably going to run into Boros, a Dimir beatdown/mill deck, something unpredictable and rogue (although he played BUG mill last time) and either azorius control or junk rites...we'll see how it goes. I think I'm pretty well positioned for it though. Better be packing some Pillar of Flame


Ol' Yeller... — April 17, 2013

I'm contemplating taking this deck out back and shooting it...it's too slow...

I need some assistance again, I've borrowed some cards from KrazyCaleys deck list Bolas for a Better Tommorrow, and am attempting to reshape the deck a bit.


Metagaming — March 15, 2013

I feel like this deck will get it's ass handed to it by Thragtusk , Geist of Saint Traft and even Boros Reckoner . Help!

I am not completely set on any plan, but it was built to use Havengul Lich and Burning Vengeance together profitably. Heartless Summoning is supposed to make my other creatures more affordable for recursion purposes but like I say...I'm flexible. Just trying to get prepped for the release of Dragon's Maze


The Lich's Vengeance — Jan. 27, 2013

This card is too strong to not abuse. It's not quite as strong in standard since Perilous Myr is rotating, at least so far. But Vexing Devil and Snapcaster Mage seem like good creatures to recur.

I've also liked Burning Vengeance since it first came out. Since I want to throw things in the graveyard anyway, and there seems to be some pesky small guys out there in Ash Zealot and Dryad Militant I may as well have my creature control serve a dual purpose. Burn it is!

I just need a good burn spell, and some thoughts on what direction I should go. Also, what board wipers should I be looking at? Cyclonic Rift or Mizzium Mortars ?

use Mizzium Mortars , your opponent doesn't get creatures back without undying etc, and you still get to keep all of your creatures

What are your thoughts on Duskmantle Seer vs Olivia Voldaren ?

both are impressive, especially Olivia Voldaren in a control setting, voldaren can give you your opponents creatures, kill weaker creatures, and can be a heavy blocker, Duskmantle Seer is essentially a group hug Dark Confidant , so he could be useful

The only thing I see that is missing is Away . I run Grixis control and to be honest If you are not running Away and play UBX you are shootting yourself in the foot. The versatility that it adds to you hand is ridiculous. Try it and let me know how it works.
