Perfect Strategy:

  • RandomRaven7 Hey thanks for the point! Much appreciated. These kind of decks have many choices in terms of creature control... you can try to remove them from the hand by discarding, using sniping spells like Doom Blade or sacrifice spells like Geth's Verdict , or simply by fighting them in the battlefield. I chose sniping and battlefield control with Nyxathid . Also don't apologize for an extra comment man! Oh and if you ever change from Modern to Legacy, Hymn to Tourach is the way to go :D It's just mean.

  • Diresam12 Hey again, I wanted to try some extra non-basic lands and the most harmful I could find was Leechridden Swamp . Since it can be played over and over again, and gives Black mana when tapped, I guess it's the winner. Ghost Quarter is interesting, but this deck is so black-mana-intensive that the colorless mana would do more harm to me than to the opponent :/ About creature removal... I don't find myself in trouble very often... the deck controls very well what goes into the battlefield or what goes into the graveyard. I will consider other kill spells as well. Thanks for the support man, much appreciated.

I would suggest considering Horrifying Revelation . Sangromancer is a fun one as well

Hey this is a silly question but i am a little confused about the card The Rack . If you are making them discard so many cards why is it good?

  • pudgeep Hi! Allow me to explain, because the wording has been the eternal bane of that card: It will deal 3 points of damage every upkeep, minus the number of cards in the hand of the oppponent: that means... if you keep him with NO cards in hand, the math would go like this 3 damage - 0 cards in hand = 3 points of damage at the beginning of the upkeep phase. I hope that clarifies it. Not to be confused with Black Vise

  • Fandango47 Good suggestions! As soon as I test this build (a couple of days more, finally) I will take your suggestions into account. Sangromancer is a very interesting card, may be helpful indeed. Thanks for your feedback man! :)

Funeral Charm during opponent's upkeep! Isochron Scepter combos with it as well.

I feel like if your going to go legacy rack you should try out Thoughtseize and Dark Ritual

I agree with the ritual. Also, Megrim , Liliana's Caress and the ninjutsu of Okiba-Gang Shinobi . Perhaps also, if you're playing casual, Mind Twist for extra wrong-ness. I believe that it's banned in legacy tournaments.

@BusseHey there. You definitely need Waste Not , man. Other than that I see you having a difficult time against aggro. Take a look at my deck: Nyxafang Control :) I run Innocent Blood primarily against aggro and trust me.. It helps A LOT.
