DESTROY ONION

Perfect Strategy (1 vs. 1):

Card Explanations:

  • Blackmail: A card deceptively useful, very handy in this dedicated deck. The opponent shouldn't have usually more than 3 or 4 cards in hand, so this hits everything, including lands. When everything has to be discarded it doesn't matter whether they hide something or not.
  • Hymn to Tourach: Because Wrench Mind is "Meh", let's go Legacy singing some Hymns! This card is nuts, and Turn 2 Hymn does a lot of damage thanks to the random factor. For added fun, make the opponent shuffle his/her hand and choose the cards him/herself.
  • Hypnotic Specter: Because few things combine better with Dark Ritual than this baby. A T1 or T2 Specter will make some opponents sweat... specially those aggro and midrange players. Beware with counterspells and bounces...
  • Inquisition of Kozilek: Nobody expects the spanish inquisition! The poor-man's-Thoughtseize, more useful in early game than in late game, is still better than Despise and Duress, I believe.
  • Leechridden Swamp: Damage dealer for the late game, when you have lots of mana and few things to do with it. When the game stalls, this card helps alongside The Rack.
  • Painful Quandary: Finisher. Puts the opponent under lockdown, giving you time to plan and hit through combat damage and the enchantments.
  • Raven's Crime: An elegant discard card that uses those spare lands that fill your hand in the late game. You can't choose the card being discarded... no, you can't, but when the opponent's hand is falling apart like leaves in autumn... choosing is not a priority. Best played in Turn 3, after an Inquisition of Kozilek and a Hymn to Tourach.
  • Shrieking Affliction: A Neo-Rack that, in a dedicated deck, works better than the former. In combination with Painful Quandary, the Affliction will pin down any opponent and force him to not playing a card or lose between 5 and 8 life, considering he/she has only 1 or 2 cards in hand.
  • Sign in Blood: Draw engine that will, for the price of 2 life, keep the opponent on it's toes. Just when your hand seemed empty... BOOM, 2 new threats. Used best in Turns 4-5.
  • The Rack: A staple in this kind of deck, well supported by Shrieking Affliction this card is Game Over if your opponent can't top-deck an anti-artifact card within the first 7 Turns.
  • Victim of Night: This hits more creatures than Doom Blade and Go for the Throat (also there are some Wurmcoil Engines and Steel Hellkites in my playgroup), so it's my first choice. Also the is not a downside in this deck.

If you're running this, and feel that you sometimes get mana flooded, maybe you should run a pair of Barren Moor instead of 19 swamps, that way you can cycle a couple in a worst cast scenario?

  • CrazyGood-MTG9797: Thanks for the love man! I would suggest you check the other decks for ideas if you want. I see you like white decks too :)

  • malfeischylde: Although I HATE those lands, it might not be a bad idea to have 2x or 3x of Barren Moor. Thanks for the point of view man :)
    I still have to test to a fine level how the speed is going (haven't played in 7 months, unfortunately), as the early 3-4 Turns HAVE to be valid, and I can't afford a Enters the battlefield tapped event ;)

Cheers to both!

In my discard deck I have only 16 lands and it works great. Allthought I have no Painful Quandary which is the most expensive card in your deck (but you have Dark Ritual and i don't). Sometimes I have some spare lands and then I pay retrace's cost of Raven's Crime with them, so I don't think that Barren Moor will be that necessery.

So how about 16 lands? You could put some more creatures then Stronghold Rats? Or some more draw source? Altar's Reap, Night's Whisper, Scarscale Ritual, Dream Salvage

seriously. I can't stand having a land that comes in tapped when it is really important that it doesn't. I actually cut the moor from my loma pox list, and am just keeping the tranquil thicket bc it synergizes with the deck better. Ireally don't want my lands to slow me down. As is, I two lands that don't even tap for mana. The struggle is real.

If what you need is actual draw power in mono black, there is also Skeletal Scrying. I was just thinking that land flooding isa real thing in mono color decks with no fetches.

So how about that Guul Draz Specter instead of the Hypnotic Specter. Sure it comes out one turn longer but it will almost always come out as a 5/5 and stay that way on your turn with ample discard. Also, Asylum Visitor is on the cheap now. I've been testing it in my 8-rack/waste-not and it not only provides good draw but some really good power if the opponent doesn't have any creatures out.

asylum visitor is a great call oldbatman! definitly something to cosider!!!
