The Search for Fblthp

Casual G/U (Simic) TurboFog



Just looking for my lost Homunculus.

A deck I've put together for FNM. It won't be winning anything, the aim is purely to use a Search the City with Totally Lost .

If I can Search the City and manage to get a turn, you've already lost in my eyes.

I figure it will go off, or my opponent will.

To those wondering, there is no win condition. I'm just trying to find Totally Lost via Search the City . Search the City is still bad. Very bad.

Frilled Oculus is Fblthp's concerned, less attractive cousin.


Played 4 rounds going 1-3. Didn't expect a win at all, unfortunately, dearest Fblthp is still quite lost.

Last round I had him sight. Totally Lost in hand, Search the City with 4 land and a foil Totally Lost shimmering with anticipation at the bottom of the 5 card pile. Unfortunately a Silverblade Paladin paired with an Arbor Elf managed to deal 16 damage on turn 6. Being tapped out for the search, I was unable to stop the hurt.

The search continues.

I agree, I therefore confirm the new MTG unwritten rule for the present STD format: If you search the city and find Fblthp, you automatically win the game i.e. opponent is forced to concede.

He's lost in the Fog . Then he uses an Otherworld Atlas to Search the City . What more win condition could you want? +1

lol what?

Actually, if you keep getting Elixir of Immortality and keep up staunch defenses, you could potentially win the game through attrition.

Denial048 says... #8

I would add more Elixir Of Immortality, just to try to win by your opponent drawing out XD

GriffinRider says... #9

I think the win con is to wait 53 turns until they draw themselves out, whilst simultaneously searching the city through the fog and clinging mists until he finds totally lost with the otherworld atlas.

Anyway, good job +1

Psychic Spiral is the win condition you want.;p

Fblthp should be a Legendary Homunculus creature in Dragon's Maze. That would make my day

You could add Stolen Goods so you can steal your opponent's win-con.

It would be even more epic if this was a 250 card deck with Battle of Wits ... imagine how much more difficult (and therefore rewarding) it would be to find Fblthp in all of that.

eatme755 says... #15

common sense guys! kill by mill thru draw. meecht is right. stolen goods is cool. planeswalker anyone? c",

schmelonater, Godspeed sir.

Alright everyone, I made the deck. The Search for Fblthp (Wit Edition)

January 31, 2013 10:14 p.m.

meecht says... #20

Fblthp for Dragon's Maze Planeswalker!

January 31, 2013 10:36 p.m.

MinscAndBoo says... #21

+1 for hilarity!

But, but, you need a Fblthp!!

February 1, 2013 2:44 p.m.

meecht says... #22

Since Search the City exiles cards, it would probably be better to include as many 4-ofs as you can. I could imagine it hitting both Negate or Stolen Goods , then you wouldn't have anything to cast to get them un-exiled.

FabrizioEV says... #23

I seriously can't understand this deck... Could someone explain the mechanics?

February 1, 2013 6:58 p.m.

schmelonater says... #24

The goal is to find the missing Homunculus, Fblthp. He's Totally Lost and you must Search the City for him.

February 1, 2013 7:12 p.m.

FabrizioEV says... #25

No but, really, does it have a purpose? Lol.

Does it actually have a win condition?

February 1, 2013 7:22 p.m.

schmelonater says... #26

No--But I got the combo turn 6.

February 1, 2013 7:35 p.m.

OrgasmAndTea says... #27

Finding Fblthp IS the win condition. Find him, and you win at LIFE.

nielsbass says... #28

I love the way this makes no sense. +1

February 3, 2013 4:11 p.m.

MinscAndBoo says... #29

Agreed, but deck needs a Fbltph! How about 1x Doorkeeper ?

February 3, 2013 7:04 p.m.

KIOKI says... #30

Sooooooooooooo Fun....+1. Take a look at my Grixis deck and leave a comment.I used this deck against my friend and he decked out...it was sooo much fun lolbtw my deck is named deck:grixis-lock

February 3, 2013 9:53 p.m.

JokerWx13 says... #31

doesn't Fblthp look like Doorkeeper ? or at least a little brother of his xD

February 3, 2013 11:59 p.m.

meecht says... #32

Once you find Fblthp, say, "There you are! I've been searching the city for you all day! It's time to go home." Then scoop and walk away from the table, hopefully leaving your opponent to wonder WTF just happened.

February 4, 2013 12:15 a.m.

TheDrawKarp says... #33

I think confusion will be one of the contributing factors to any win I manage to get.

February 4, 2013 12:23 a.m.

Vos_Is_Boss says... #34

Um... this deck has a turn 1 win factor...

Do you guys see it?

I mean.. all you have to do is explain what your goal is... and I would concede.

Thanks for the laughs today. +1837

TheOne4221 says... #35

We need a Fblthp card now if it doesn't exist.

Dragon's Maze: You know what we expect.

February 4, 2013 11:44 p.m.

MinscAndBoo says... #36

Just to re-iterate, this is the best deck in Standard right now.

Vos_Is_Boss says... #39

If you put your deck's name in brackets, it will make a link for you. That way people dont need to copy and past long links.

for example

The Kessig Township

You get a free chocolate chip cookies if you clink the link, too! :D

meecht says... #40

I had to come back and mention that DailyMTG posted a story today for Fblthp.

February 27, 2013 8:24 a.m.

Aelfstan says... #41

+1 I love this so much, I want to build it so I can help find fblthp!

Kyoril says... #42

I played this online just now and it was fantastic. After a lost 0-2, I tried to explain it to the guy, who had no idea even who Fblthp was, and he eventually just left. I lol'd for almost ten minutes. No sign of Fblthp though... :,(

+1 for a great deck and a good laugh.

Necrodas says... #43

I saw this decklist a good year after you created it and I just wanted to say that you, sir, are my new favorite person in the entire universe. I will be playing a Theros standard version of this deck once i build it

July 14, 2014 9:30 p.m.

TheDrawKarp says... #44

Bravo dude. Please post a link when you have the list up and I'll add it to the description if your cool to have it there.

Always cool to hear the search is on again.

July 14, 2014 9:43 p.m.

Necrodas says... #45

Hey here is my version Finding Fblthp I don't know if I did that right but there it is. I wish they would just reprint totally lost and search the city khans just so I could make another version!

July 24, 2014 3:40 p.m.

Tyrannosary says... #46

You should have splashed white. Fblthp is featured in two cards, Totally Lost and Unquestioned Authority. You could place Unquestioned Authority on Doorkeeper and ask him if he has seen him come in. Your opponent will be so confused XD
