- 4x Concealed Courtyard
- 1x Flagstones of Trokair
- 3x Godless Shrine
- 4x Marsh Flats
- 8x Swamp
- 1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Upvote mainly for the song, nice XD (though i think one more Wrench Mind would be a good add)

Thank you both, I aim to amuse. :P
Athraithe yeah I've been playing with numbers recently, originally Wrench was a 4 of and Pox was 2. But I'll continue tinkering to see what could be shaved.

Really like the deck but you put it down as budget for 600 bucks?
May 24, 2017 3:29 p.m.
TooLazy2Win I also put it down as a Group Hug! XD
But actually though, this is for all intents and purposes a budget version of 8-Rack as a technicality, since I opted to exclude 4x Liliana of the Veil, which would have added another $460 to the price tag. She's been a staple along with The Rack and Shrieking Affliction since the deck's inception.
The one thing I really couldn't substitute was Ensnaring Bridge - there's just nothing else like it and it really is crucial against a lot of strategies.

oh i didnt realize you were the deck author n0bunga, it explains a lot now XD
May 24, 2017 4:58 p.m.
Your creative descriptions have no bounds. I love everything you make.
Your sideboard seems a little odd, though. As much as I like transforming sideboards, is a 1-of Anguished Unmaking likely enough to show up in your hand to make a difference? Etc.
May 24, 2017 5:25 p.m.
For things like RIP, Stony Silence, they were more answers for specific decks that need special attention but don't clutter too much of the 15.
Anguished is a great catch-all card, and at this point just compliments as added removal if need be. But I recognize this deck's crippling weakness is Leyline of Sanctity, so I put more emphasis on white enchant-destruction.
May 24, 2017 5:33 p.m.
I like Geth's Verdict here but I'm not sure what to replace. Love the concept though, even if I can't make myself play a creatureless deck.
May 24, 2017 5:57 p.m.
I freaking sang it. If that's not worthu of an upvote I don't know what is. +1
May 24, 2017 6:42 p.m.
Casey4321 :3 haha thank you!
Athraithe As always, I aim to amuse :P
Grantley91 cheers for the suggestion! Like you I have a hard time finding out if it fits. I have seen 8Rack decks run good ol' Hippie Spector! I just felt it wasn't for me.
May 24, 2017 10:53 p.m.
Flagstones of Trokair has been added for synergy with Smallpox.
May 24, 2017 11:25 p.m.
Might as well throw Waste Not in there for added value.
May 25, 2017 3:06 a.m.
scrobacca I like it! But I'm not sure what I'd take out.
May 25, 2017 10:03 a.m.
Maybe to make tutoring out a Plains more consistent with Flagstones of Trokair, you should add one more Godless Shrine and remove a Concealed Courtyard. Just in case you've already drawn or played your singleton Shrine.
May 26, 2017 10:44 a.m.
I love the description so +1. I do think you could use more wrench mind less necrogen mists
May 26, 2017 7:04 p.m.
mattman856 thank you kindly for the like and suggestion mate!
You think so? My idea was that traditionally, 8Rack has a full set of Liliana of the Veil. Since that unfortunately not in the budget at this point, NecroMists is the best equivalent at forcing a discard per turn.
May 26, 2017 7:29 p.m.
Well Lilli is in 8-Rack for more than just discard. The sac effect is great in some matchups so I guess depending on your meta Necrogen Mists works fine.
May 26, 2017 8:53 p.m.
May 26, 2017 9:16 p.m.
mattman856 Don't get me wrong mate, Lili will eventually see a set in this build when I can. Necrogen is kind of like the closest thing to a placeholder until I'm able to get them.
scrobacca Yea, Unburden seems like a great enabler, and the cycling's not too shabby either!
May 26, 2017 10:33 p.m.
sdh101 Sadly, the Invasion block isn't modern legal.
Modern begins with Mirrodin - Amonkhet.
May 28, 2017 12:42 p.m.
Use Quest for the Nihil Stone. It kills people so quickly.
May 28, 2017 3:42 p.m.
+2 Wrench Mind
JKRice I gave it a shot, unfortunately the hellbent stipulation was just too demanding and Waste Not ended up being more useful.
May 28, 2017 7:05 p.m.
The pro for NecroMists would be a perpetual discard, akin to one of Lili's abilities. But the drawback would be a hellbent opponent makes it a dead card. Unburden forces twice the card pitch, but it's never a dead card thanks to its cycle effect.
Also, that Scourge art is badass.
Xandermarron cheers brotha, I'm glad you dig it :)

May 30, 2017 8:44 a.m.
Could work, but I don't know what you would remove for it.
May 30, 2017 3:52 p.m.
At this point the draft concept is:
+2 Ensnaring Bridges
+1 Collective Brutality
-2 Waste Nots
-1 Flagstones (or quarter)
This makes for more consistency for the bridges, and the CB is kind of a freebie that could be swapped for more consistency for the other spells in the main.
I haven't been too impressed with playtesting Waste Not sadly.
May 30, 2017 4:01 p.m.
herringtonr a more practical cut.
-2 Ensnaring Bridge
May 30, 2017 7 p.m.
Seems reasonable enough, but only testing will tell.
May 30, 2017 10:18 p.m.
lol, nice song! mind if I add it to my collection of MtG songs? (There's a section at the bottom of the OP for other people's theme songs.) =D
