Or you could just ramp to 8 and use Army of the Damned instead.
It's a noble concept, but... meh.

I was saying that you could use Army in place of your elaborate three-piece combo.
For one more mana, you get twice the benefit with only one third of the cards and then you aren't letting your opponent draw 7 cards. If they draw into Day of Judgment , Slagstorm , or any board-wipe for that matter, you're boned. You'll have no cards left, no creatures left, and they now have 6 cards to smash face with.

Mmm, true. I'm really trying to get this 3 piece to work though. I could probably run more Mana Leak or Dissipate to counter board wipes. Atleast with Slagstorm though, if I have 2 or more Cemetery Reaper 's out I'm fine, and a Grave Titan can get me back some zombies. Also an Endless Ranks of the Dead would maybe help.

Occam's razor - The simpler solution is usually the correct one. Doing a BUG control deck that ramps up using green while controling with blue to drop Army of the damned is alot more straight foward.
Basically your trying to get a car to run on hopes and dreams while handing your opponent the equivalent of seven shotguns to blast you and your soon to be army in the face.
January 8, 2012 2:03 p.m.
2 more Mana Leak And At least 1 Dissipate As the said any thing that would clean the bored has you but if you can counter it then your better off.

Psychosis Crawler? A sphinx, crawler, then time reversal is 21 points of damage which wins unless they have gained life haha. Just something to think about. ;)

i really like your concept here. HOWEVS. for the price of this deck im pretty sure there are more efficient ways to do what your trying to do. +1 for creativity. I used to be really into elaborate ways to create infinite damage and such. And ive leanred the simpler it is the mroe likely it will work. If you can get this little combo of yours to work with even one less card needed your going to have significant improvemnet
January 8, 2012 8:38 p.m.
you could probably use Elixir of Immortality , cause you might discard alot, but you could always need some of those cards you discard, also you are essentially milling yourself down pretty fast with your combo, so you could probably use a way to get some cards back into your deck.
January 8, 2012 8:55 p.m.
+1 for originality.
Like it's been said before, probably more efficient ways to do it, but it's refreshing to see new ideas!
January 8, 2012 10:16 p.m.
The deck needs more draw, Less creatures, more interruptions!
January 8, 2012 10:37 p.m.
so I realise that Time reversal shuffles your gy into your deck, so my previous comment can be disregarded.
January 8, 2012 11:48 p.m.
I like the idea, however you need to work on mana acceleration. Control will only take this deck so far, if you can't have 5 mana by turn 4 or 5 this deck loses it's value very quickly.
Also i suggest lowering your high cost cards to 2 or less except for your combo cards. Mana curve will kill you every time.

sorry for the extra post, Heartless Summoning fits extremely well in this deck. putting two in can't hurt. SURE it gives you negative 1 negative 1, but being able to turn 4 Grave Titan would be bad ass
January 9, 2012 12:39 a.m.
wow... ok honestly, i'm not trying to cause problems here, one more thing that would make this deck freaking hilarious is undead alchemist. honestly, SUPER funny. create all kinds of zombie tokens, then control by milling the crap out of them with the zombies you created with all that discarding.
January 9, 2012 12:44 a.m.
My 2 cents, add in some fun flashback cards so you don't waste discards.
January 9, 2012 7:04 a.m.
Also IMO run 2 or 3 zombie infestation, more than one on the BF is a dead card. +1
Please view and rate my deck:

Tuned the deck to what you guys said, Added some Undead Alchemist and flashbacks (Think Twice , Forbidden Alchemy ). Also added card:Jace's Erasure since with all the card draw you could potentially mill your opponent dry.
January 9, 2012 4:51 p.m.
thats just silly Blund, love it. This deck is really starting to shape up. +1 for sure.
January 9, 2012 5:03 p.m.
Just play tested against a familiar blue/black control/mill deck, EVERY time I was about to Time Reverse with an Infestation and Sphinx out, he would always doom blade the sphinx or make me discard my hand with an Archivist. It's just those silly things that make me laugh. Other than that I had a load of fun playing this. Gonna tweak it even more. And thanks for the +1 Ian!
January 9, 2012 5:27 p.m.
hey Blund, i literally just put together a deck before this, been tweeking it but it's quite similar to what you are trying to do. minus the draw deck:heartless-ranks-of-the-dead. give it a look. there might be more in there that you could get idea's from.
January 9, 2012 6:26 p.m.
Hi. I really liked the deck idea. It seems a bit slow, but that's to be expected. It's definitely original. Something to consider, off the wall, would be card:Jace's Archivist, since it lets you dump your hand for the infestation, then refill. Also messes with your opponents game plan, as their hand changes every turn. Also might consider Turn Aside s, since for 1 blue, you get to ensure your sphinx or infestation or titans get to stay.
+1 from me, great idea
January 15, 2012 2:54 p.m.
I think another great addition would be Jin-Gitaxias, Core Auger. That way you get more infestation food and your opponent would not benefit from the time reversal. I know his cost is rather high so maybe Quicksilver Amulet? Otherwise I think this is a great combo deck and +1.
January 22, 2012 4:52 p.m.
Meatman, that would be an awesome addition to this deck. I'd plop in 2 Jin-Gitaxias and 2 Quicksilver Amulet, but I have no idea what I'd take out for them. The amulet would also help with titans and sphinx's as well.
January 22, 2012 5:06 p.m.
I think this deck, especially the milling aspect, would be a lot stronger with Nihil Spellbomb involved. Without it, the milling just won't work.
Cool idea! Just needs work.
February 1, 2012 2:18 p.m.
I never even thought about putting Nihil Spellbomb in to get rid of their graveyard before doing a Time Reversal. I only had Jace's Erasure in there to dick around with the combo, but that's way better.

I've actually been trying to come up with an idea for a solid mill plan in u/b and I gotta say I love the interaction between time reversal and notion thief. Might have to borrow that one :)
