So I am assuming that your combo is + + , and only paying 10 life? Or MotW/WoB+RoC and the charm to gain 1 and pay 19. As nice as this combo seems, you have no real draw engine other than the reap. How quickly does this normally go off?
Concept wise, I think it comes out of nowhere and does a lot, and I like it. Can't wait to see a detailed description of what the deck does!
+1 from me, and subscribing! :D

Thank you Its_Johnny_Bravo and Tingettley for your thoughts and comments. I do really need to write up a description for this deck badly and I will be doing so soon. This has been a very intriguing and somewhat complicated deck to to both build and play. Since we learn more about our decks the more we play them, even if it is simulated, I have to say that when playing this deck I have been astonished by the things I have come up with. This makes it hard to write a description that is both accurate and to the point. There are actually so many points in this deck and they all hurt if they stick you. However, for now, I will reply personally.
To Its_Johnny_Bravo: The idea of Death's Shadow has crossed my mind. I personally see it as more of a backup but could still fit in this deck depending. Even with the low cost of it and assuming that my life is already low, it could prove to be an asset with a Rite of Consumption in hand or a Dying Wish and and one of the many ways you can sacrifice. This would be perfect for any thing else that can do high damage even nearly as quickly as this deck can. It is also a card I have definitely been considering for sideboard.
To Tingettley: + + was definitely the original idea. However after not being able to get my hands on some cards ,even some as important as Rite of Consumption the deck has managed to move in a slightly different direction. The addition Ebony Charm for instance has opened up a couple new pathways revealing a better extended game play. It has also helped renew Minion of the Wastes by giving it much more leeway. While the insta-kill combos can go off as early as turn one with Wall of Blood it isn't too common. Turn two is likely the most common however if you haven't managed to get a kill combo by turn 3-4 depending on the opponent and their deck you may want to start switching to a longer game. Though this is where Death's Shadow could come in I would rather focus on the main idea and making it quicker and adding sideboard to take care of the longer game. This is where extra draw really would help. Do you have any suggestions? Also thank you again for +1 and your compliment the out of nowhere really made me cheese.

Wow, I really haven't been on here in a while. I haven't actually played as I have moved and been busy with that. Now that I am here I would like to take some time to thank you for the +1's and also say thank you to Asidos and Jaibo for the comments.
