The Orzhov Curse

Modern Control W/B (Orzhov)

impo


Description

"May you be left with nothing in this life, and the next"

Thought it'd be fun to work some control with the pending renewal of the Orzhov Guild. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Lingering Souls work very well together to stall, and with Vault of the Archangel I can keep the board fairly well locked up.

Bloodgift Demon provides fantastic card advantage, on a solid body and helps to dig for answers.

I'm still not sold on Mutilate and/or Terminus. I know they're powerful cards, but I almost feel like Divine Reckoning might have a home in here somewhere.

Thanks for the comments all, and please don't hesitate to mention anything you like or what else you think might fly!

Updates

Replaced all 4 copies of Stab Wound with Arrest to lock down problem creatures. Stab Wound was working more as removal anyways, but in the event it stuck around it was just leaving them a blocker / sacrifice target.

Tragic Slip since you are playing counter removal. I like this idea, Mind if if I borrow your idea for Standard?

Please be my guest Baatosan, as long as you let me know how it does! If you find anything that works significantly better I want to know about it!

Unfortunately, I felt it slow and so did my colleagues, they helped me out a bit and made into this. Curse of Sorin

I love the idea, unfortunately Tap Out's shuffling algorithm is completely bogus. I tried 5 playtests and in the first 4 turns never drew another land. usually started with 3-4 in my opening hand.

Binaryraven I feel you bro. But i assume tappedout's shuffling algorithm is equivalent to "Tournament Shuffling". I assume you shuffle while putting 1 land and 2 cards etc. While Tournament Shuffling does not allow you to do that.
