I would definetly think about splashing green for Prey Upon and better Painful Truths hits

Magma Spray is super important in the meta right now for keeping zombies dead

why no Insult? stroongest card for this deck. Double up then attack and double up your fling

as far as cuts go I am not a big fan of Eldrazi Obligator and I don't think you have enougb creatures to feul Scrapheap Scrounger. Morbid Curiosity is a little mana intensive IMO

I think these are all valid. The Obligator is an experiment. It feels like a card with 2 modes. Just a body? Or a threaten also.

I'm not conviced we will ever have enough mana to cast a threaten, fling and insult in the same turn, otherwise would definitely put that in. We tried to only include cards that could be played for free off of Kari Zev's Expertise which is why we chose Altar's Reap for example. We were just curious if Morbid Curiosity would work...see what I did there?

My suspicion is that this deck is just overall too "cute" an idea to actually work. But we wanted to have some fun because there are so many powerful creature decks in the format right now, and nobody will see this coming.

Thanks as always for your suggestions!! How is it going with your control deck?
