The Abyss Gazes Also Into You -- BCL 2015

Commander / EDH




"Battle not with monsters, lest you become a monster; and if you gaze long into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

-- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, Aphorism 146

A deck created for a budget Commander league. Six weeks, $10 in upgrades per week, no card worth more than $10. Let's go. :)


Updates Add

A minor bit of polish.


  • Phyrexian Devourer ($1.09)
  • Deathrite Shaman ($6.67)

= $7.76. (I have to think DRS's price is actually $6.66, because he's just too metal and TCGPlayer can't handle it so they bump him up a cent.)

... and Out...

  • Dragon Throne of Tarkir
  • Budoka Gardener // Dokai, Weaver of Life

Devourer is an instant wincon with Jarad, and DRS does so much work in the graveyard-heavy meta that has developed. Meanwhile, the Dragon Throne is cute but mana-hungry, and I never have enough lands in my hand to justify Budoka Gardener.
