Vexing Shadow

Modern* Aggro Zoo




Sideboard are cards which coud potentially go in the main deck, or could be a white splash Rally the Ancestors + Vexing Devil eg.

So what does the Deck:

Vexing Devil + Dark Confidant and Death's Shadow as Key-Cards.

Some game-control cards like Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are always good.

And because the creatures could potentially die, we can revive them easily with Claim / Fame or Postmortem Lunge .

Hope you will like it :)


Added Lightning Bolt and Street Wraith and rearranged some cards.

What about Bloodghast? You wouldn't play it from your hand, but discard it and then return it with the next land drop.

Also Reforge the Soul could be amazing - either you play it for its miracle cost or you also can discard it.

Maybe Insolent Neonate is worth checking out. Gives you basically Faithless Looting all the time and is quite a decent attacker.

And last but not least, your deck already has quite a lot in common with the Dredge Archetype so probably you should have a look into those deck lists or a format primer.

I also thought of Bloodghast but he is to high mana cost for now.

Anyways I edited a little bit so thats a playable deck.

Nvm, didn't read the description carefully enough. So a suggestion I would have would definitely be a fourth Claim / Fame instead of Stir the Grave. Also I like burn like maybe Lightning Bolts instead of Terminates as they also provide the option of damage to close out the game.

Do you mind if I make a variation of this deck, as long as I cite you as inspiration?

Also a play set Street Wraith is good for any deck built around Death's Shadow
