The Order of Life and Death

Casual Jokernaught


Updated Again —Aug. 16, 2012

This time I reset my updates and redisigned this deck. It's running smooth so far. I just need some more playtesting to refine it a bit.

For mana I would consider Verdant Catacombs and Overgrown Tomb to thin the deck and get mana fix where you need it. You can fetch at the end of your opponents turn so that you don't have to pay the 2 life

Yeah that would work, but it's just added flair. My mana base is alright and I would have to purchase Overgrown Tomb to make the two Verdant Catacombs I have useful. The only benefit I think I would gain is if I could some how synergize it with a Landfall mechanic if I included Catacombs.

Recollect is a bad Eternal Witness , because Eternal Witness can be sac'd.

Recollect is also less money, But Eternal Witness like you said can be sac'd and is a creature. Thank you for your help.

If you could work in more zombies Gravecrawler would be perfect.

Yeah he would. I thought about maybe adding him anyway because of the fact that I don't have many zombies. It won't be something opponents would Nesscarily expect. Being able to have 1 on the field and 1 in the grave and alot of black mana could make Bloodflow Connoisseur fairly big quickly, and wipe the board with either Savra, Queen of the Golgari or Butcher of Malakir out.

I thought about it. But I already gain enough life already thanks to Savra, Queen of the Golgari and with Gnaw to the Bone . I really would consider him if his CMC was 5 instead of 7. It's too high for this deck I think.

You could include him as a one of, cuz he is a beatstick.

I typically don't use him for life anyhow lol

My beat stick for this deck right now is Mycoloth . Once I get him on the field with a few Devours, I use a Demonic Appetite and a Oni Possession to make a a very nasty beater turn 6 death engine. It's fatter than a titan and sacs the tokens it brings in, triggering about everything in here. And that combo tends to be very reliable.

I'll proxy Doomgape to see what it can do. Maybe I can find a way to throw him down early with a reanimator or something. I was hoping to find some graveyard shenanigains with white.

If you need any ideas, feel free to take any from this deck: Your War Is My Feast.

Token production is fine. Its white creatures I be looking for now.

Note: Doomgape plays fine. Sometimes its a dead draw so I will hold of putting/playing it again until I change the deck a bit more.
