Description

Seriously Competetive! Fast, Destruction, Damage, Life, Mill, Draw, Defense! One on One or Multiplayer!

The main combo of the deck is Sacred Mesa + Skyshroud Elf + Ashnod's Altar in order to be able to recycle all of your creatures.

The secondary combo pieces are Impact Tremors - Direct damage. Altar of the Brood (sideboard) - Mill. Essence Warden - Life Gain. Aura Shards - Artifact and Enchantment destruction. Court Street Denizen - Tap your opponents' big nasties cough Emrakul, the Aeons Torn/Griselbrand cough. Fecundity - drawing.

Supporting cards are Krosan Grip - Artifact and Enchantment destruction with split second. Raise the Alarm - for 2 creatures at instant speed which can help with surprise defense or turn it into mana with Ashnod's Altar. Doomed Traveler - not only is it a creature, if it dies or you sacrifice it you get another, better creature for free which could also turn into .

Sideboard cards, Druid's Deliverance helps negate big damage from creatures while giving you an extra token and Ground Seal gives a single card draw and helps defend against self milling decks while still allowing Fecundity to work.

With the main combo (Sacred Mesa + Skyshroud Elf + Ashnod's Altar) in place you can continually recycle your creatures in order to trigger any of the secondary combo pieces.

How it works: Just sacrifice a creature token to Ashnod's Altar to generate . Wash the with Skyshroud Elf to get or simply . Pay to put a Pegasus token back into play.

The biggest threat to this deck is a Mill deck (potentially) or Torpor Orb though I haven't had much trouble with mill decks as of yet. Torpor Orb on the other hand can completely mess this deck up.

I am sure there are situations I have yet to encounter but all in all this is the most resilient/well rounded deck I have ever made or played with. If anyone has any suggestions or knows of a situation where this deck would struggle please let me know! Otherwise I hope you enjoy!

Updates

Swapped out 4 Soul Wardens and 4 Blisterpods in favor of 4 Essence Wardens and 4 Doomed Travelers in order to better facilitate Court Street Denizen without throwing off the mana base.

As you already have Sacred Mesa perhaps add in Earthcraft

Thanks for the suggestions but Birds of Paradise wouldn't work at all since mana needs to be washed not produced. I am also leaving Earthcraft out since the deck would no longer be Legacy legal. Thank you both though!

There should be at least a little bit of removal and/or disruption in the deck to make it more competitive. also needing four different cards to go Infinite is pretty inconsistent without some kind of tutor effect. I would suggest splashing black or blue instead of splashing red

Please tell me what type of cards/situations I need to guard against and also what type of removal you suggest. I am sure that I have by no means run across every possible situation out there.

well your playing legacy so the big showstoppers of your format are Dredge, Show and Tell, and Miracles. Dredge is extremely weak to condemn because it puts there big dumb creature on the bottom of their library which pretty much makes the card unreachable, especially in this match-up milling them is the worst idea possible since they are already doing that to themselves. Show and tell is a little more tricky because the have a play set of Emrakul, the aeons torn and GriselBrand in it, for this match-up milling is good removal like path to exile should be pretty great since them getting an extra land essentially does nothing you need a way to deal with Emrakul before she attacks. Hopefully you can create enough redundancy with your tokens that the annihilator trigger doesnt just clear your whole side of the table. Lastly, Miracles... some lists run monastery mentor, kill this the second they play it, preferably with path or swords to plowshares. the best card in their deck is sensei's divining top, it will win them the game 90% of the time so artifact / enchantment removal is key for this match-up ame with sneak and show because you need to to destroy sneak attack and omnipotence. Hope this helped.

P.S. counterspells and hand attack spells also work great i.e. mana leak or thoughtseize/inquisition of kozilek

Thank you for your response/help. One question before I get to work on this. Should I be less worried about negating Torpor Orb which could completely shut this deck down vs focusing on these other things?

what does fecundity do in this deck?? tokens don't go to the graveyard, they just cease to exist when they leave play

They will trigger Fecundity allowing me to draw the whole deck if I wish once the main combo is out. Three card combo (Ashnod's Altar + Sacred Mesa + Skyshroud Elf ) with multiple things to do with the combo. Aura Shards, Fecundity, Impact Tremors, Altar of the Brood and Soul Warden. This deck hangs on by the skin of its teeth sometimes but it usually comes through. Thank you again for the advice.
