Thanks, I Think I'll Take That





Goal is to hijack creatures and wipe opponents board and life with their own beasts only to sacrifice the creatures after using abilities of Defiant Salvager, Bone Splinters and yahenni.


Added Hanweir Garrison and Hanweir Battlements...gonna give it a spin....I figure tokens will help boost my other creatures if sacrificed...

Need to reevaluate my sb...suggestions welcome :)

Foreboding Ruins could help a bit.

Seems like a fun deck!

Zulaport Cutthroat seems like a logical addition.

seems like an awesome deck idea. Just be wary that you can only do this stuff at sorcery speed. Zulaport Cutthroat would be great to give yourself some headroom. keep up the good work though!

Thank you Leatherankh and Drcaptain for the suggestion!! I will definitely fit Zulaport Cutthroat in. Any suggestions on what to take out?

This is eerily similar to my budget standard deck, Rakdos Aether Control, I would try maybe swapping Pia Nalar for Syndicate Trafficker, since hijack can take artifacts as well.

I would suggest taking out pia nalaar, she doesn't seem to fit in well and there are better ways of getting artifact creature to sac. The full set of Zulaport is imperative because you're going to be constantly saccing things, the multiple triggers would be almost a win con. If you have the extra cash (and please don't hate me for suggesting this) you could potentially replace some hijacking spells for things like Scrapheap Scrounger which you can return from your graveyard and you don't have to rely on the other playing having creatures. Great moves though, keep it up!

Drcaptain awesome. Thanks! I actually do have a couple of Scrapheap Scrounger and can definitely replace pia with those.

I believe you are right about Zulaport Cutthroat. A full set is needed. I will make some more adjustments!

Another non-budget option would be Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, just because saccing creatures is hilarious with him, and if anything, he's a lightning rod. Haha

Runlue that would be a great add! I was trying to keep this budget friendly but definitely would consider the add. Lol

Stitcher's Graft

Or Grafted Wargear if you wanna bring the idea to modern.

Deck looks great. I'd suggest removing Hanweir Garrison and adding in more Defiant Salvager or Voracious Null. You could even drop a Gonti since he's legendary. You want to be consistent and stay true to the strategy.

BFG says... #14

Agreed ramuzzini, I would definitely go to a playset of the salvager at the very least to provide more consistency. 2 and 3 ofs are typically fine on legends if you don't always want them in play but it might be worth the effort to go up on the Yahenni and push out Gonti. He ups your curve at what cost? you get one of their cards but in the 2 turns it takes for him to really become useful you could potentially cast 2 or 3 cards and steal one of their things for sacrifice. Just a thought.

Love the deck. I might suggest replacing the Voracious Nulls with 2x Indulgent Aristocrat. In my similar deck, it really helps with extra 1-drops, lifegain tempo, instant sacrifice, and most importantly, boosts your other vamps aka Yahenni

Also, don't underestimate Olivia, Mobilized for War as an extra vamp / way to pump guys and make em hasty. Especially if you decided to include some more madness, it could be a good swap out for an unlicensed disintegration since you're already rarely getting the damage trigger

Hey I have a deck that looks like this in Magic Duals only its has Hazoret's Favor added in for more bang. Also adds to your fling.

Zimmers_0 Thanks for the suggestion!! Seems like that would be a smart addition to the deck. Definitely would make the game very fun!!
