Illusionary Horror (Torpornought)

Legacy* BG (Golgari) Rock


My pet deck of horror.

Torpor orb has proven to bring with it so much awesomeness. It gives both middle fingers to:

Aluren - Baleful Strix, Cavern Harpy, Coiling Oracle, Parasitic Strix.

Death & Taxes - Flickerwisp, Palace Jailer, Recruiter of the Guard, Stoneforge Mystic.

Eldrazi - Eldrazi Mimic, Thought-Knot Seer.

Elves - Craterhoof Behemoth, Elvish Visionary, Reclamation Sage, Shaman of the Pack.

Goblins - Goblin Matron, Goblin Ringleader.

Merfolk - Harbinger of the Tides, Silvergill Adept.

Other non deck specific cards: Imperial Recruiter, Snapcaster Mage, Vendilion Clique, Venser, Shaper Savant.

It plays like a rock deck with the heavy hitters being extra on the heavy. (looking at you Phyrexian Dreadnought and Hunted Horror). Torpor Orb is (1 of 2) of the combo cheats of these two badass beaters but the hate it brings against my opponents decks has never ceased to amaze me. The 2nd cheat is Illusionary Mask and it is a WACKY and fun card but my god be ready to frazzle your opponents with the absurdity this card will bring, this card is BONKERS. It's a good deck, it wins games and it gives creatures that aren't Tarmogoyf a time to shine. (Plus in this deck tarmogoyf is a weak bitch!)

Any help, ideas or suggestions will be warmly welcomed!
