Xantcha deck with a small dose of pillowfort, reanimator, and group slug effects. Plays a bit politick-y, often starting with which lucky player first gains control of our commander. Some neat synergies with Xantcha and cards like Errantry or Silent Arbiter serve to lock out the rest of a player's creatures from attacking. Treacherous Link is a cute way of burning a player for 13 with Blasphemous Act , and doubles the damage dealt by Pestilence effects. It's best played on Xantcha itself so as to protect her from any poor combats and to amplify the hurt on our chosen player. Pestilence and Pyrohemia are also great at keeping the board clear of tokens and more frail utility creatures while Xantcha survives.

Some less-than-usual sweepers are included, too. AEther Snap to deal with planeswalkers and tokens, and Void as a tune-able wrath to spare Xantcha while dealing with other troublesome creatures (and/or artifacts!). Thoughtseize and Pyroblast serve to disrupt typical blue play, and never lack for a good target.

Dread , No Mercy , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , Koskun Falls , Silent Arbiter , and Crawlspace all serve to discourage or outright prevent attacks to me.

I've added more support for big mana finishers like Comet Storm , Exsanguinate , and Xantcha's ability itself. There's the typical suite of Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , as well as Bubbling Muck , Crypt Ghast , Nirkana Revenant , Neheb, the Eternal , Treasonous Ogre , Mana Geyser , and Doubling Cube .

Other wincons come through oneshot-kills via Hatred or Tainted Strike , and also Insurrection . Polluted Bonds , Stranglehold , and Bloodchief Ascension are effective cards on their own, but also serve as powerful silver bullets against popular archetypes.

Thanks for any comments and suggestions!
