Try adding Fling to sack their creatures and do some damage at the same time.

@Snivy__ Its really fun to play- thank you!
@Ryceratops1234 Good suggestion, however Fling can easily become a dead card if I don't have mana to cast it on the same turn with a mind-control spell. It has huge upside though, especially paired with Hazoret's Favor; I'll put in two!

When I mind-control an opponent's creature, I always want to swing with it before sacrificing it. But because Bontu can only attack if something has already died, I can't swing with him if I want to swing with the mind-controlled creature. I'll do some more playtesting with him though!

Correction: I assumed Bontu the Glorified's gender in my last comment (I said he; Bontu is a she) and realize I assumed wrong, I am sorry I am such a cis bigot. My apologies

Ixalan is suppose to have white vampires, as if vampires weren't pale enough. Might find some cards to boost this deck.

Love the deck idea and i can't wait to test it out. Have you thought about Fling or Heart-Piercer Manticore? It would be really nice to take their creature, hit them with it and then throw it at their face.

I actually built a version of this deck. Heart-Piercer Manticore was too much mana to cast on the same turn with the mind control

Made a similar deck in straight red The Witwicki Motto, there is one thing more gratifying - having your opponent brag about their stuff before you steal it.
You're right, that is horrifying - Yoink - Know the horror!

Costly Plunder is a bit too situational- I need to have the mana to cast a mind-control spell and have Costly Plunder in hand. However, I'm sorely needing card draw and I'm not sure Ruthless Knave is good enough card draw! I will experiment

SirMandorallen Sorry for such a late response- I completely missed seeing your suggestions!
I tried using Fling at first with this deck, but then started moving away from situational single-use cards like it and, for example, Costly Plunder because I would often be caught with these cards in-hand without either a creature to sacrifice for them or without the mana to steal a creature and then sac it. However, this deck has become able to deal much more damage with new Ixalan cards and 2 copies of Fling may find a place.

I also have a similar deck, and oftentimes run into trouble with enchantments. What card would you add to deal with enchantments? By the way, my deck is just Red and Black, though I've been considering a 3rd color.

@Bluedawg79 I'd personally recommend splashing white to get fragmentize. With all the legendary enchantments running around it's been performing quite well for me.

@Abubs i dont know about your local meta, but mine basically dont play the enchantments until they can flip them that turn so sorcery speed removal is dead. i do love the idea if i could find instant speed though.

Nereket very interesting; are the legendary enchantments really something I need to be worried about though? Seems like it takes more work than it's worth to try and stop people from using the legendary enchantments against me
