Turbo Fogtrol (GP Atlantic City)

Modern Control Cruel Control G/W/U (Bant) TurboFog

ireman4life Score: 8


Trying to make a successful competitive Turbo Fog. Since the meta is so heavily aggro, playing a deck like this gives an advantage, making many cards in their decks dead. Survive hits with cheap fog spells. They get too developed slow them down with a wrath. Get to the mill win-con. Games take about a 30 minutes so if you're curious about it please take the time to test it. Feedback is welcome, as well as +1's :)

For some reason my SB Verdict won't appear

1x Elixir of Immortality - Gain a little life and cycle the graveyard.

3x Snapcaster Mage - Bring back fogs, wraths, or draw.

1x Detention Sphere - Good for undying/indestructible.

3x Downpour - Testing it out. Strangleroot Geist has killed me.

3x Druid's Deliverance - A cute fog.

3x Feeling of Dread - Tap guys down, stops Hellrider trigger, and value with Alchemy.

4x Fog - Guess why...

2x Forbidden Alchemy - Helps search out whatever I need with flashback.

3x Sphinx's Revelation - Life gain and drawing, everything control is about.

2x Think Twice - Help miracle Terminus and get late game card draw.

2x Jace, Memory Adept - Key to the deck.

1x Archangel's Light - A deck that this actually works in. Gains massive life and shuffles all that good stuff back in after all that drawing.

1x Increasing Confusion - Use it for the flashback value.

3x Supreme Verdict - Uncounterable board wipe to help with aggro and flash.

4x Terminus - Stops undying, Falkenrath Aristocrat, and most zombie-related problems.

2x Alchemist's Refuge - Wrath on opponent's turn.

1x Nephalia Drownyard - Added a black source to flashback Alchemy, so might as well run it.

1x Ghost Quarter - For Moorland Haunt primarily..

2x Cyclonic Rift - Help against pesky Hellrider or any Rings/Spheres.

1x Detention Sphere - Mostly for Planeswalkers.

3x Dispel - Help against Revelations.

1x Entreat the Angels - Alternate win condition after decks remove all creature hate.

2x Negate - Against control or Walkers.

1x Psychic Spiral - Awesome against anyone trying to mill me.

2x Purify the Grave - America Flash primarily.

1x Supreme Verdict - Mostly for America flash and G/W aggro.

2x Witchbane Orb Decks with Liliana of the Veil and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker.

Round 1 - Mono Black (splash red) - I love this match. He has such a slow start and no haste creatures so I won. Mull'ed down to 5 and kept a one-land-hand with Feeling of Dread and some cantrips. Got mana screwed :(. Last game I flashed Snappy for Negate to stop Grafdigger's Cage when he had Desecration Demon since I could sac, but he left Tragic Slip in???? Oh well. (1-2)

Round 2 - Bye :(

Round 3 - R/G Aggro - One of the wost cards to face: Strangleroot Geist. He had plenty of them so I had to use fogs early and got burned late. Same problem game 2 so I added Downpour, as I think it helps in many aggro matches. (0-2)

Round 4 - Junk GY Shenanigans - Crushed him both games without SB. He was new so I played straight up knowing there was no tricks. (2-0)

Results - 2-2 (13th of 26) - Learned the hard way people might not SB properly, and I think Downpour was a good addition.

FNM 12/28
Round 1 - Golgari Aggro - He started off quick with turn 2 Dreg Mangler followed by Rancor but was able to stabilize and land a Revelation. After that wrath and mill. Second game he couldnt find a black souce after landing some Strangleroot Geists. Terminus into mill FTW. (2-0)

Round 2 - Mono Green Aggro - First game he beat me with his Predator Ooze because I didn't hit a Terminus. Side in Spheres for the Oozes and had both the second and third games easily.(2-1)

Round 3 - 4c ReAnimator - Awesome match for me. He helped me by milling himself and I ended up winning easily. Second game we hit time quickly so he just gave me the win. (2-0)

Round 4 - Amerca Flash - I don't like this match, but luckily my Revelation saved me after being at 4 life. Side in a bunch of counters and dropped a Jace. (2-0)

Results - 4-0 (1st of 28) - Deck ran well, but if flash keeps dominating my meta changes will have to be made.

Love the report at the end, going to take things like this into consideration when building. What would you consider changing if Flash shows more heavily? +1

Honestly, my flash match up is what it is. I have an awesome SB so the smart move is to scoop once they gain massive card advantage.

I don't know how accurate this ruling is but I was told you can exile an undying creature from the grave before it actually returns with instant effects like Purify the Grave or Cremate so if undying is bothering you that could be an option.
