Door To Nothingness - TurboFog

Standard* G/W/U (Bant) TurboFog

HiMastaHi Score: 3


Description

Ok so now that I know this deck has potential its time to get it FNM ready. My sideboard has counters for most non-agro decks since turbofog decks have always been counter agro, so here's how I plan to sideboard against different match-ups:Delver - red, blue

-1 Touch of the Eternal -1 Caravan Vigil +2 Curse of Exhaustion

Black blue control/mill:

-2 Phyrexian Unlife -1 Touch of the Eternal -2 Safe Passage -2 Clinging Mists -1 Fog +2 Beast Within +2 Curse of Exhaustion +2 Elixir of Immortality +2 White Sun's Zenith

that's the two most annoying matchups for me ill figure other stuff out as I go along.

FNM Results. — Aug. 5, 2012

It happened to be a 2HG this last Friday and my team failed, miserably.... And I realised this deck needs its sideboard.

more ideas — Aug. 2, 2012

Agro decks don't stand much of a chance against this deck because all those damage effects become useless due to all my fog effects, right now my only problem is blue control decks and green reds artifact destruction which is why i went with Trading Post . ill playtest with Beast Within to take out Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and other annoying planeswalkers. Thank you mserron for suggesting White Sun's Zenith it works well as an alternate win condition, I would prefer to use Entreat the Angels but I don't have any. so far with White Sun's Zenith I get at least 6 cats which could win me the game if I don't get my Door to Nothingness out or if it gets destroyed.

Going to be playing this at FNM and so far testing vs agro decks has been sucessful. Went against tokens and won 6 games to 4 and against goblins won 3 to 1. The games I lost was due to either stupidity, bad starting hands being kept or running out of cards in hand. My best hand of the day happend 4 times Turn 1: Forest, Birds of Paradise

Turn 2: Land, Vessel of Endless Rest (Ponder Abundant Growth or play another Birds of Paradise )

Turn 3: Gilded Lotus play another one drop

Once this happend:Turn 4: Door to Nothingness , land Vessel of Endless Rest

Turn 5: land, Tap and sack the Door to Nothingness

Turn Still thinking of ways to improve and thanks for your comments.


It's working — July 30, 2012

It's working, I've been play testing this deck against my token deck and its close to 50/50. I added Mind Unbound for card draw and it hasn't let me down. I also added Phyrexian Unlife and Touch of the Eternal to my sideboard as a counter to blood artist decks, elixir of immorality for mill decks and Curse of Exhaustion for control decks

Something good — July 29, 2012

Got the together and tested it out. Found drawiny to be slow so I added 4 ponders. I'm still tryin to cut the amount of cards down to 60 so I have the greatest chance of getting Door to Nothingness off.

Comming to life — July 24, 2012

So after testing a few ideas this is what I've come up with. A basic turbofog deck with Door to Nothingness as a win condition. There are 12 fog type cards, 6 mana searching, 9 additional sources of mana and 3 fogbanks. I'm busy gathering the cards still but its looking good and online testing has been ok.

You could sub in Moonmist for a cheaper fog effect, sideboarded out when you actually face werewolves.

Agree with the guy above, Moonmist, if you're set on the fog direction. You have no swamps or mountains even though you've got land-fetch for them. 4 Birds, no need for Gilded Lotus/Vessel of Endless Rest when you're in green w/ rampant growth/farseek/birds(Switch to Somberwald Sage). 4 Ponder, get some Hinterland Harbors or other pro-forest lands if you can. Archaeomancer is Snapcaster's not as capable little brother, switch them. Trade out Mind Unbound for something more immediately powerful(spelltwine? Primeval Titan You have lots of options when dealing with 5 color). Take out cavaran vigil since you can't activate it's morbid reqs. Put in some blue staples like Tap/Bounce/Mana Leak.

In terms of what I'd do with this deck, I love fog but it's kind of bad - I'd get myself some more bodies that I don't really care about(Solemn, Borderland Ranger, Birds, Dawntreader Elk, Augur of Bolas) as well as draw(Ponder, Think Twice, Forbidden Alchemy and maybe a Buried Ruin in case I throw away my own Door)and land fixing to get to Door.

Somberwald Sage won't run the Door to Nothingness , so the Birds are more vital to the deck.

Also, here's how I get to the Door: Kessig Repository. card:Druids' Repository can supply the mana, and I'm just attacking as unrelentingly as possible to do it.

This deck works, the Gilded Lotus and Vessel of Endless Rest is essential at the moment for that extra mana at the start and later. I was thinking of an agro deck with card:Druids' Repository but I've always wanted a turbo fog deck. u chose Mind Unbound because I had 2 and I needed a descent card which helps me draw more, it was either that or Staff of Nin . So far testing verses tokens and agro goblin burn has been good and I learnt a few things.

@Long Somberwald Sage is replacing Gilded, not Birds

@Hi, if you're set on Mind Unbound, ok, I can't change your mind, lol. But lower CMC stuff will let you draw faster, and in today's standard environment, you want to end the game by turn 6, not start. But hey, if it works where you are, forget what I said.

Somberwald Sage only works for creatures, this is a turbo fog deck its ment to stall as long as I need to get the door. I am still trying to find a replacement for Mind Unbound I need a constant source of extra draw and I didn't want to use Rites of Flourishing or Otherworld Atlas which normal turbofog decks use because it gives my opponent the extra draw too. I might add a few Forbidden Alchemy s but ill see how playtesting goes.

whoops my mistake on the Somberwald. Reading Comprehension FTW

July 31, 2012 4:47 p.m.

it feels like you are trying to draw your deck in to many directions using all the diffrent colors. what you wanna focus on is quick mana and card drawing. And for a nothingness deck i really recommend Rites of Flourishing since it will help you get double mana in all colors needed faster. Id also recommend you to take out gilded lotus for rampant growth that will do so much more for this deck. for more ideas take a look at my door to nothingness fog deck deck:door-to-nothingness-fog

HiMastaHi says... #10

But Rites of Flourishing gives your opponent that advantage too. Why does no one like Gilded Lotus I think it's an amazing card 5 for 3 extra mana and it draws away all the anti-artifact spells so my Door to Nothingness is safe. I tried with Rampant Growth but it wasn't working out for me, I don't know why though, ill retest with that and I had a suggestion to try Trading Post which does everything apparently, what do you guys think of that card?

@raisinbman lol, your not the first to make that mistake.

mserron says... #11

card:Blue Sun's Zenith or Think Twice if youre not going to play Rites of Flourishing ... Personally I think that you could add a card:White Sun's Zenith or two - instant speed for a surprise block. Love using that card in turbofog. AND my alltime favorite - card:Norn's Annex! haha its a great sideboard card at the least. +1 from me. Comment on my deck:gb-deathtouch-control Deck if you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate it.

Alternate win condition - Entreat the Angels / card:White Sun's Zenith. Also, I know they are expensive, but Snapcaster Mage is beautiful with turbofog...

August 2, 2012 11:50 a.m.

HiMastaHi says... #13

Snapcaster Mage and Entreat the Angels are a little expensive for me since I really don't have that much money to spend on magic. I also love card:White Sun's Zenith maybe ill fit 2 in this deck. I'm not so keen on using Think Twice I really don't like that card much and it failed me during my playtesting games, same as Rampant Growth . If I wasn't running the Phyrexian Unlife -Touch of the Eternal combo, I would seriously think of using card:Norn's Annex maybe ill do some testing with it too.
