Gate to the Winning Life

Standard Theme/Gimmick UB (Dimir)

Zooby9


This deck is based on a deck found here: Standard Deck Tech: U/B Cycling (Deck Tech & Matches)

The point of this deck is to cycle a lot of creatures, and get God-Pharaoh's Gift onto the battlefield to win.

Card Choice Explanations

Archfiend of Ifnir - Cycles for 2 and can wipe an opponents board by cycling a few cards.

Champion of Wits - Helps get creatures into the graveyard and helps filter cards in hand. Also comes back as a 4/4 draw 4 discard 2, which is a lot of value.

Countervailing Winds - A counter spell that fits this deck well because it becomes super hard to pay the cost.

Curator of Mysteries - Cycles for 1 and helps filter draws when cycling.

Gate to the Afterlife - Mostly used to get God-Pharaoh's Gift , but also can gain some life here and there.

God-Pharaoh's Gift - The main win-con in the deck. Brings back any of the creatures we have cycled as a 4/4 and makes Vile Manifestation bigger.

Grasp of Darkness - Consistent removal.

Hollow One - Can be cycled for 2, but is usually cast for free due to constant cycling.

Horror of the Broken Lands - Mostly just to cycle to activate Gate to the Afterlife, but sometimes can be used a buffable creature.

Lurching Rotbeast - Cheap cycler that can be brought back.

Striped Riverwinder - Mostly used to cycle, but can come back as a 4/4 with hexproof.

The Scarab God - A big body that drains opponents and scrys plus can bring things back itself.

Vile Manifestation - A good blocker that gets bigger as cards are cycled and can be cycled itself. Also when it comes back it becomes massive as it's a 4/4 with the same ability.
