Wow this is so cool. I have been playing only standard since I started playing, so I just started playing modern, sorry I don't have any suggestions for your deck. But it's a good one, +1

Thanks Ian1037738! Modern is fun, but the archetypes are a little predictable. This is for casual play and more of a party favor than a competitive deck. If one can get past the fact that it's horribly susceptible to removal and appreciate the novelty of it, its pretty amusing.

+1. This is a well thought deck... and I'm all in for that.
Rock on, man!

Always nice to hear a kind word!
Have a Magic New Year!

This is the funniest deck I've ever seen. +1

I wish more people would create decks like this. Just shows that Modern has a lot more to offer than Tarmogoyfs. +1

That's a great card, and very effective. The problem I have with it, is that it costs 4. Also, I wanted to keep this deck a little more quirky and offbeat than straight playing land and spells. If I were to play Laboratory Maniac seriously, I would definitely consider Selective Memory. I'll keep it in mind for a future deck featuring Maniac.

This isn't modern. Modern only allows four of each card excluding basic lands. This deck is casual.

It's original, it's budget and it works sometime.
In short I like it.

@ FrostyAlpha- this deck IS modern legal. Shadowborn Apostle specifically states that a deck (including commander) can have any number of Shadow born Apostles or Relentless Rats. A card that states it changes the rules is totally legal, unless its been banned.
@ shuruga- thanks man! Came up with this idea in about ten minutes one morning. LOL I want to build it, but need more rats!

I would love to build a deck of my own like this but I really don't want to have too buy that many Shadowborn Apostle considering I only own 2.

The only thing I would consider changing is to toss in 1 more simian and then swap the island for manamorphose. Then u get an extra draw out of it and u don't potentially need to have all the pieces. or possibly add more of those

Would this be great for tournament if not what changes would you make for tournaments?

@14jatwood- interesting. I've never considered it, I'll have to do some testing and see if this is viable.
@franny24- No. There's no protection, no alternative wincon, no removal, and would take at least 5 turns minimum to acquire the wincon.
Make no mistake; this is a novelty concept deck used for casual play for a few giggles against new opponents. Put tournament play with this silly thing out of your head.
Thanks to both of you for the upvote and great questions/suggestons!
Keep the love flowing!

How about using Street Wraith instead of Gitaxian Probe? Sure, you don't get to look at the opponent's hand to see if they have a kill spell, but the wraith is instant speed card draw and it's an ability, so it's harder to counter.

how do you get Shadowborn Apostle into the grave?
September 8, 2016 8:30 p.m.
ModernMage- discard them at the end of your first turn.
September 8, 2016 9:30 p.m.
You could tweak it a bit and play Shelldock Isle

This is fantastic. Love it.
February 21, 2017 8:21 a.m.
Wait, how do you get a shadow apostle in your graveyard?
March 24, 2017 7:32 p.m.
@GreenFuzzyNinja- let you opponent go first. Then, on your first draw, you'll have 8 in hand, pass turn and discard one. You're all set to go!

@TheSurgeon Hey, nice deck!! I have a deck like this in the sense it is so insane it basically breaks the game. Here it is http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/my-minds-desire-is-to-play-every-card-printed/
March 25, 2017 12:41 p.m.
I still don't understand why you only have 1 island not 3, I see the simians, but why not just have 3 islands, also protects against land killers
April 2, 2017 3:20 a.m.
@Pygmyrhino990- I can only drop one island a turn, I can use both Simians in one turn.

I'm lmfao as I read this. I love it! This is even better than Zombie Hunt. I have to build this one and take my local meta for a ride. Great build.

@SlimJim83-I haven't actually played this. So, if you decide to be a guinea pig, let me know how it works: average turn win/loss, defense holes, logic holes, etc. It's been a concept for a while now, with no actual practice.
Also, unny you mention that. The idea actually came after smoking some really good pot ;-P and talking about decks like Zombie Hunt (going to post my flavor of this today), and hamiam's 11.67% OF THE TIME, IT WORKS EVERY TIME.. There's also my Mill Myself Indulgence; less quirky, and a bit tricky to pilot, but still a fun unorthodox wincon.
Thanks for all the Upvotes, bro! You can follow/friend me by going to my homepage, if you like to stay updated on my decks and activity.

I highly approve of your Laboratory Maniac shenanigans! Leave the deck the way it is, it's perfect. +1
April 3, 2017 12:53 p.m.
This is so stupid, I love it! +10 dude :D
August 25, 2017 3:21 p.m.
So lemme see if I got this right: Discard a Shadowborn Apostle because your hand is too big, pay 2 life for Surgical Extraction to exile all 52 copies of the Apostles, then pay 2 more life to exile all four copies of the Extraction, then exile 2 Spirit Guides and tap the Island to play Lab Man and win on your next draw step?

allthatisman42- You got it! Thanks for the kind words and upvote!!

Thank you MEWLIO!!

Crazy that Apostle is almost $2 a card, weird to see a gimmick deck like this costing almost $200. It's like playing Zombie Hunt with foil full art basics. Nice concept, for sure.
