UG Splinterfright

Modern Aggro G/U (Simic)

nys Score: 7


Description

The deck aims to fill the graveyard with creatures, then win through Splinterfright and alikes.

Use Hedron Crab and creatures with cycling to fill the graveyard, much like Living End decks.

I have one of these decks, and I found that Mirror-Mad Phantasm Coiling Oracle and Traumatize work wonders.

Played a little on the deck. Put Worm Harvest since most of the time I have a spare land in hand and lots of others in graveyard.

For G/B Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Grisly Salvage are two good recommendations

For U Armored Skaab works well or pure mill cards like Thought Scour , if you end up milling too much Laboratory Maniac might be an alternate win-con.

Please please please more dual lands! 4x Hinterland Harbor , 4x Breeding Pool , whatever it takes to ALWAYS have green AND blue by turn 1, turn 2 at the latest. If you can get that done, you earn an upvote. I like the deck.

@Forehand: I'm thinking about adding black. I would probably add Jarad too if I do. Tracker's Instincts is more useful than Grisly Salvage.

I don't have any problems with milling myself, doesn't really need other mill cards. I try to avoid spells without flashback or similar so they don't end up dead cards in the graveyard. I actually mill all my deck frequently and intentionally stop milling to not lose, but Laboratory Maniac could be a good alternate win condition, especially against graveyard removal. I think something like 1 maniac and 4 eternal witness would be a good package.

@homesuck: Same as above; if I add black, I may also add the spiders.

@RareLaboratory: Ok :) You're right, I added 2 more Pools. I don't like Harbor just because I usually want to begin the game with an untapped blue mana source to play Hedron Crab. Also in long games I tend to run out of basic lands to search with fetch lands (Hedron Crab has a bad habit of sending them to graveyard too), so I don't want to reduce them too much.

is Merfolk Looter any good? Better yet... Magus of the Bazaar ... can you consistently cast 2 creature spells in one turn? if so, i'd strongly suggest adding a set of Vengevine s to the deck, maybe a single copy of Skaab Ruinator just in case you need to punch through with an early 5/6 flyer
