Modern* Control



Creature (1)

Check out my card alters at http://sexynoodle90.deviantart.com/ !!!

This deck is made to last until late game when you can lock-down an opponent with a mixture of Curse of Exhaustion and Knowledge Pool. There are many ways of getting this combo out built into the deck... Treasure Mage fetches my Knowledge Pool, and possibly the Wurmcoil Engine if need be. curse of misfortune will guarantee my curse making its way out if for some reason it doesn't end up in your hand.

To control the game and allow you to pull this combo off there is a large selection of control that are for different situations.

Of course there is Venser, the Sojourner with Stonehorn Dignitary or Phyrexian Metamorph. He also goes nicely with Oblivion Ring.

I run 3 Day of Judgment for aggro decks, and I hardly have any creature(most are for their enter the battlefield effect anyway, and Venser can protect them from the blast :P).

When the combo goes off jace, the memory adept will ensure they mill themselves first, and Gideon Jura can also slow down an aggro deck.


Witchbane Orb doesn't effect the curses on the enemy, so I keep a few in the sideboard in case i'm playing against a burn deck.

Ratchet Bomb is obviously for those pesky tokens.

Gutshot slows down delver, and eats Birds of Paradise.

Mirran Crusader for mono green Dungrove Elderdecks.

Nihil Spellbomb for grave lovers :P

Please take the time to examine this deck. If you would like to use this deck idea on tappedout.net I'd appreciate a shout out. I haven't seen a deck like this made before.

I'm always open to suggestion, and appreciate the +1's!!
