This is my take on Sharuum, built with recursive engines and resilience in mind.

My overall thoughts are that the Vancouver mulligan has seriously taken the hammer to the engine build of yore; Tawnos's Coffins and Trading Posts are no longer as viable as they once were. While I would prefer to play in a world where I could play competitively with fun, complicated cards like them, I recognize that this is a new world and the deck has to adapt if it wants to stay viable.

This is a midrange, combo-control shell that emphasizes consistency and a good curve more than the older engine-style builds, but still maintains the overlapping synergies that make Sharuum Sharuum.

I always find it interesting to look at decks with similar origins which diverge in to completely different directions based on the same event.

How has Hurkyl's Recall been for you? It's a card which I've circled around a couple of times, but never committed to. Is it purely defensive, or have you found proactive uses for it as well? I don't see any attempt to go storm for example.

It's versatile, which is why I run it. It can be a tempo play that slows down the player with the fastest hand, or it can let me storm out my mana rocks, or it can slurp up a Null Rod to pitch to a wheel, or it can absolutely blow out an Arcum player (there are three in my meta).

How do you like altar of the brood? I am worried that it won't finish players off because of eldrazi shuffle effects.

The old -original- Eldrazis tend to be scarce, because de BFZ's ones are more powerfull.But the new ones don't have that shuffle effect :p

If you face an opponent loaded with Ulamog 1.0, Sharuum have tools to manage that: Bitter Ordeal, Tormod's Crypt and Nihil Spellbomb.

I have not lost to an eldrazi shuffle in almost three years. The only decks that play them are fast ramp decks (Azusa, Omnath) and Animar. I generally don't have any trouble with those kinds of decks.

Good to know. I haven't gotten it off yet. That said there is at least one animar, Azusa, and kozilek deck around my shop.

really nice deck, was a big inspiration for mine. Would you mind checking it out and critiquing any holes? I am working on the manabase still hoping to get some more fetches etc.
