Starting turn one this deck comes out with Duress and Appetite for Brains to start weeding out potential mid game threats. Or set up a chump blocker/discard with Drainpipe Vermin

When on the draw the deck can react with Tragic Slip to mana dorks

Turn two your looking at Black Cat and Ravenous Rats to keep aggro from running all over you and even if they are picked off by removal they still give you value

Turn three were looking to use Bone Splinters to take out a large threat and get our morbid active, going for another Tragic Slip or if our early discards were missing Mind Rot comes in for 2

Turn four is where the magic happens. By now youve exhausted their control/burn cards and can drop Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Desecration Demon to put the nail in the coffin. These cards hit the board and stick around for a turn or two and your well on your way to a win. If all else fails Slaughter Games gives you a way to eliminate your opponents recovery cards like Thragtusk or any of the pesky angels.


Finally updated after skipping AR and most of M13, suggestions welcomed

Grafdigger's CageMTG Card: Grafdigger's Cage beacuse you're going to give big opportunities of flashbacks!

also if you cant get out your cages maybe a Nihil SpellbombMTG Card: Nihil Spellbomb or two?

Well in my meta Im coming up against Delver and Grixis control, neither have any real good ways to interact with the cage except o-ring which I will usually see coming as often as I am looking into their hand. I guess I do like the spellbomb since you can respond if its targeted, but have to weigh the one and done vs a constant effect. Cage also has the added benefit of stopping pod and zenith.

I wasn't suggesting replacement but adding it in as well if you seem to not get to it.

Ohthenoises says... #10

just expect the cage and the spellbomb to draw IMMENSE amounts of hate so get those counterspells out of their hand asap.

February 15, 2012 4:20 p.m.

brizzle says... #11

Yea, the discard cards will more then likely get counterspelled since more often then not thats what I'll choose. If not the hexproof and beatsticks come next which I can turn around with Gruesome EncoreMTG Card: Gruesome Encore

'Maybe' -2xDead WeightMTG Card: Dead Weight for 2xWring FleshMTG Card: Wring Flesh?

February 26, 2012 2:10 p.m.

brizzle says... #13

1/1's dont scare me, tragic slip is strictly better, dead weight can be subbed for go for throat depending on matchup. Deadweight kills capatins and puts titans behind against obilterator.

Minousmancer says... #14

I like both, I suggested it for surprise, and that -3 can be a life savor with Trample creatures.

Speaking of Trample have you thought of Inquisitor's FlailMTG Card: Inquisitor's Flail for your Phyrexian Obliterator MTG Card: Phyrexian Obliterator ? I use it here for great effect: deck:behold-perfection

how does this deck fair in competitive play?

I love Surgical ExtractionMTG Card: Surgical Extraction in decks that can control/force discard to pull key part of their deck out completely before the game even begins

April 6, 2012 8:18 p.m.

brizzle says... #18

It has great matchups against the white token and RG aggro decks, the real problem I am having is with mono black zombies. Added the crusaders to improve that matchup but havent gotten any playtests against it yet.

Turn one despise and a surgical extraction on delver is pretty much the nuts

Mutilate may be a good substitute for card:Black Sun's Zenith
