The best part? This deck actually works. What happens is, once you hit layer 9, your opponent doesn't have enough cards in their deck to draw their initial 7, and they lose turn 0. Then you go back up to layer 8, and they lose 10 health. After 5 castings of Shahrazad in layer 8 (which should take 5 turns tops), they hit 0 health, and you move up to layer 7. Lather, rinse, repeat, until you make it back up to layer 1 and finish the resolution of that final Shahrazad.

theemptyquiver says... #6

How much time passes at layer 9 for every five minutes in layer 1?

February 25, 2011 3:09 a.m.

adinsx says... #7

Exactly enough to get you DQ'd for stalling.

February 25, 2011 3:15 a.m.

theemptyquiver says... #8

Once you reach layer 9 and the opponent dies can they still fall back to layer 8 or do they fall into limbo? Lost forever in the void of MTG.

I wonder if anyone is already down there? Creating their own Magic world.

February 25, 2011 3:29 a.m.

adinsx says... #9

Mark Rosewater is stuck in MTG Limbo; I hear the magic world he is creating is full of riggers and contraptions. His mind is truly lost.

February 25, 2011 3:46 a.m.

TikiShades says... #10

Would you really get DQ'd for stalling? D:

Also, lol @ price.

February 25, 2011 11:56 a.m.

felecity says... #11

probably not, however games within games are too unstable, so i wouldnt recommend running this deck without some HEAVY sedatives

February 25, 2011 3:01 p.m.

mwkelley says... #12

Priceless.

Years ago, there's was an interview on DailyMTG where Richard Garfield even gives props to this deck. Worth readin': http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/feature/78

February 26, 2011 4 p.m.

that is a great article.

johnny's all just got super boners.

February 26, 2011 4:41 p.m.

Exclaminator says... #14

the price is without the mox pearl wich is 600 dollar each. this is just 100 time sharazard at 45 dollar.

so that would count up to 64,500 dollar.

and this deck isn't legal in anny format.(except roflcopter leage)

but yeah good fun.

February 27, 2011 2:10 a.m.

drizzy says... #20

I think you might want to consider making this deck 60 cards as you will have a better chance of pulling your combo.

=)

February 27, 2011 9:01 a.m.

Exclaminator says... #21

nah stay this size otherwise you would lose because your own tactique

February 27, 2011 9:20 a.m.

February 28, 2011 10:52 a.m.

u'd lose, but yeah lolz

February 28, 2011 5:54 p.m.

u'd lose, but yeah lolz

February 28, 2011 5:54 p.m.

The only flaw with this brilliance would be the "halving his/her life points, rounded down" because you would never be able to drop opponent's life below 1...no matter how many subgames they should lose. Half of 1 rounded down will always be zero.

DrSteveBrule says... #31

Dude...

If I had the money for 100 Mox Pearls and 100 Shahrazads, I would build this deck.

Funniest.

Deck.

Ever.

March 1, 2011 2:06 a.m.

adinsx says... #32

@Geniusholmes13: ?

From the Oracle text: "Players play a MAGIC subgame, using their libraries as their decks. Each player who doesn't win the subgame loses half his or her life, rounded up"

The original wording of the card set your life to "half of 1, rounded down", which is 0. They changed it to read "Loses half rounded up" in Oracle because the original wording was somewhat confusing.

The deck works fine. Or am I misreading what you said?

BrownDog5117 says... #46

oh jeeze... theburchman is definitely dreaming.. he's leaving a comment for every layer

March 3, 2011 6:36 p.m.

The card must have errata text, that was fixed in oracle. The card I have says "loser of subgame halving his or her remaining life points, rounding down."

So if they fixed the text on that, I withdraw my previous comment.

alexd777 says... #49

This wouldn't work... What if someone had training, from the military to counter your Shahrazad and spawn imaginary armies-orsomething.

AND even without doing that! You still couldn't control Leo's mind. His mental creations of his dead wife would manifest themselves in the layers and bone you over at every turn-forsomereason.

The reason this won't work is because Hulk Flash is only restricted, but can still beat this impossible deck

Hey yo dawg! I heard you like playing Magic The Gathering, so we got you this deck! Now you can play Magic The Gathering while you play Magic The Gathering!

Sorry, I just had to say it.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha I love itMfw you draw only opals or shahrazad :D

still can't get over this deck

May 19, 2011 9:25 a.m.

Nighthawk86 says... #69

Only one word can describe this deck... Booya!

Well, if you were the opponent, there might be some other choice words, but I'm not going to bother saying them as they are not appropriate :P. +1!

August 21, 2011 10:17 a.m.

doinitwrong says... #70

I can think of some words an opponent could say: Force of Will , Surgical Extraction .

August 21, 2011 11:07 a.m.

theburchman says... #71

so you would lose just that subgame doinitwrong.

September 22, 2011 8:41 p.m.

Oh, and for those concerned with drawing only Shahrazad s or Mox Opal s (just that one guy), you can still mulligan. Hell, you can mulligan all the way down to 3 cards and still draw the combo. The odds of needing to do that are ridiculously slim, though. And yes, it is true, even if somebody pulled off a hulk-flash and owned your face, it would only matter if you were in the first layer. Otherwise you would just lose that subgame, start a new one, and continue on your way. Also, having a spell countered wouldn't really hurt so much if you had 99 more copies of it to cast.

This is all hypothetical, of course...

September 23, 2011 2:18 a.m.

weterr123 says... #73

Hypothetical or not, that is correct.

skyb0rg says... #74

Technically, you could play a 65 card deck, ensuring you will still win. It's only $32919.37 from starcity!

January 21, 2012 6:52 p.m.

skyb0rg says... #75

But what if your opponent mulls down to 0?

February 29, 2012 12:25 p.m.

Loses every single time to Banned in Freeform.

sonnet666 says... #82

this can be done without being worth a small house by using 50 Gemstone Caverns and 50 plains.

It gives your opponent chances to beat you in the minigames, but you'd probably still win.

Also I'm not sure if this deck works the way it was originally described, nothing says your life totals carry between games. That means when you put them to 0 in level 8 you bump back up to level 7 where their life has once again been set to 10. You then have to create a new level 8 where their life is at 20 and set them back to 0 to put level 7 to 5, and repeat, and repeat, and repeat... It works, but it takes eternity.

It's kind of like doing a tower of Hanoi where you have to shuffle cards every time you move a piece.

December 15, 2013 3:42 a.m.

sonnet666 says... #83

Oh... Is it bad i didn't realize this was a freeform deck until after I typed all that?
