So this deck is just a concept that popped into my head earlier today, and i thought it was pretty cool.

Screw your opponent over by utilizing free spells such as Blazing Shoal and exile a Reaper King or Progenitus and have a little Ornithopter get crazy beefed up. You can also use Shining Shoal to redirect all the damage that would be dealt to you back to your opponent. Other than that it's fairly straightforward. It's always fun surprising your opponent with a little Commandeer or Force of Will teehee

Tell me what you think, a lot of thought and effort went into concocting this one, so comments and ratings are appreciated. I've gotten far more comments on this deck than every other deck I've made combined, and I really appreciate it. Thanks for all the love guys :D


Took out 4 Misdirection s to put in 4 Force of Will. It's just better.

Took out both Soul Spike s, 1 Mindbreak Trap, and 1 Commandeer to put in 3 Welding Jar s and 1 Fury of the Horde . The Jars help so i can keep my pathetic little Ornithopter out there longer and the Fury of the Horde would be really crazy if I got to play it, althought it would likely be difficult to pull off.

Took out 2 Chancellor of the Dross and 2 Chancellor of the Forge to put in 4 Noxious Revival . I needed to have a way to replay Blazing Shoals, and this is the best way. The chancellors didn't do me much good anyway.

Took out 3 Cave-In s for 3 Summoner's Pact. Again, it's just better and more central to the theme. I need to have a reliable way to get a Progenitus or Reaper King .



Very cool idea, I'd like to see how this performs in action. I always love alternative decks. It's also nice that you could potentially win on turn 1, but I suppose you also run the risk of running out of cards very quickly.

I was just going to suggest that there are higher mana cost creatures you could use, but then I realized you want them large and multicolored. Carry on.

+1 because Reaper King. I didn't actually look at the rest of the deck.

@ TwoLeggedMammal, I actually have gotten this deck to win on turn 3 in a proxy game against one of my friends. It was pretty hilarious actually

Also trust me, i would be dropping in Draco and Autochthon Wurm if they worked better, but the other things are more reliable as you mentioned. Thanks for the comment :D

Commandeer is pretty cool here

OOH, I like that idea. I'm gonna lose some stuff to make room for that

This deck is absolutely BRILLIANT lol!!!! Love it man!

If you have Force of Will , it might be better than Misdirection .

Urza's Bauble would be a great way for some free card draw.

Maze of Ith would be a good stalling tool.

Surgical Extraction , card:Tormod's Crypt, Summoning Trap (it would be HILARIOUS to drop a fatty if an Ornithopter got countered), Wasteland , Ghost Quarter , Bojuka Bog , Pact of Negation , and card:Summoner's Pact would be great sideboard cards.

I know you don't have any lands in your deck, but a few good utility lands couldn't hurt...

November 8, 2012 10:40 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #10

Oh wow, those are all really good suggestions. I especially like Force of Will and card:Summoner's Pact.

I would definitely try to make room for that other stuff too, but my whole goal in making this deck was to not use any lands / mana producing permanents at all. I'm adding a sideboard too to make room for the Pact of Negation , card:Tormod's Crypt, Surgical Extraction and other such goodies. Glad you like the deck! :D

Nice deck, cool idea. Maybe Noxious Revival to get back something you need.

November 8, 2012 10:51 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #12

Another good idea. I'm losing room for this stuff.... That would really help in getting a Blazing Shoal back to my hand. thanks for the suggestion!

November 8, 2012 10:55 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #13

I think i'll lose the chancellors, they seem the least pivotal to the overall strategy.

Good updates!

Now, if you can find a way to do this for commander... ;)

HA, is that even possible? who would be the general?

How would i get it to my hand from the command zone?

November 8, 2012 11:35 p.m.

ottoballes says... #19

Fury of the Horde will help get more bang for your buck out of Blazing Shoal . Working on a budget version of this now, such a cool idea man.

November 13, 2012 10:48 p.m.

ottoballes says... #20

... and Summoning Trap is hilarious if someone tries to counter a 0 drop. Good for sideboard.

November 13, 2012 10:57 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #21

I thought about Fury of the Horde , but the truth is that I don't think there will ever be a time when I'll have 3 red cards in my hand to burn, since I have to use 1 for Blazing Shoal and 2 for Fury of the Horde . Although Summoning Trap is most definitely finding a place in the sideboard. Thanks for the input :D

Also found Bounty of the Hunt which'll give creatures some more lasting umpf.

November 14, 2012 6:20 p.m.

ottoballes says... #23

Haha, nevermind. What an odd way to word that card.

November 14, 2012 6:21 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #24

It might have still been useful if I had more green, but since there isn't it would seem like a waste exiling a Progenitus for +3/+3 until end of turn. Ah well, it would have been cool.

What do you think about swapping a couple of Phyrexian Walker s for Welding Jar s?

November 20, 2012 3:59 p.m.

Mayonnaze says... #28

I actually really like that idea. I've found from recent playtesting that I seem to get too many useless creatures out, when the truth is I only need 1 or 2.

ChaosEngineer says... #29

Great deck, love the idea however, any creature with a Trepanation Blade spells a one swing K.O.

chembot says... #30

Maybe some of those old legendary kobolds Crookshank Kobolds , Kobolds of Kher Keep , or Crimson Kobolds could be used in place of the Memnite s to help fuel Fury of the Horde ?

magicmeister says... #31

Great Idea! I am going to try to pilot it at a tournament. What about Urza's Bauble and card:Mishra's Bauble. Cool deck, obviously a +1!

I do apologize. I think this deck is amazing but what prevents you from losing the game from cards like pact of negation and summoner's pact.

dqcoulter says... #34

replace Coalition Victory because you have no lands

June 10, 2016 3:07 a.m.

revilo19 says... #35

dqcoulter Coalition Victory is used for paying the cost e.g. exiling it with Blazing Shoal to give an Ornithopter +8+0

July 18, 2016 5:44 p.m.

Glad to see someone else is working on this kind of landless decks!

Here's mine. Might be some things you haven't seen before.
