Gifts to the Underworld

Standard* Aggro B/R/G (Jund) Budget Combo

Catonian Score: 3


Initially I wanted this deck to work as a sac-deck where I gained control of my opponent's creatures and sacced them while maintaining my own presence and attacking with my creatures. This has turned out to be exceedingly expensive (in terms of mana) so I've opted to go a different route.

The goal of this deck is to burn the opponent by pulling off sac-combos using Tymaret, the Murder King and Barrage of Expendables as sac outlets, possibly paired with Dying Wish. I'll still be attempting to prevent my opponent from maintaining a solid board presence with Traitorous Instinct/Portent of Betrayal/Act of Treason (I haven't decided which one[s] to use yet), but that is not crucial to my end-game.

I'm also including Nighthowler which will benefit from the number of creatures in the graveyards and combo nicely with Hellhole Flailer. Additionally, Abhorrent Overlord and Underworld Cerberus can combo with Tymaret and the Whip of Erebos.

Let me know what you think.

Cool deck, i like the use of tymaret and the abhorrent overlord. I would recommend removing the returned centaurs and putting in 2 more desecration demon and 1 more hellhole flailer. Also love the use of showstopper. +1

@sadiuh, I think I'm definitely going to add more Hellhole Flailer s since its ability is so useful, especially in conjunction with Nighthowler 's bestow ability. As for Desecration Demon , I'm on a bit of a budget. The cards listed are what I already have or are able to acquire through trades. I have difficulty justifying $20 for two cards.

@HellkiteHassler, I actually hadn't thought of using Barrage of Expendables . I will definitely consider and likely add it to the deck as an additional sac outlet.

Thanks for the suggestions!!
