Deck for GP

Standard Deck Help forum

So for the GP, I want to play blue-black control. here's the thing, I don't want to cheap out on the deck, but I also don't want to spend 100 $ on a creature suite. I instead replaced that with different creatures in my version. The rest of the deck mirrors the shell , though there are somethings that I am caught in a crossroads with. My sideboard seems a bit weak, any suggestions. Should I mainboard Commit / Memory over Consign / Oblivion and should I use one more Hostage Taker over Gonti, Lord of Luxury. I would love to see your opinions thank you for reading and please check out my deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/25-01-18-blue-black-control/ and have a nice day!

Keep Commit / Memory over that other card.

The Aftermath lets you shut down God-Pharaoh's Gift decks in particular, and can also remove Torrential Gearhulk targets from your Oppoent's Graveyard, as well as making Angrath's ultimate next to useless.


I prefer Gonti, Lord of Luxury to Hostage Taker as they both die to a stiff breeze, but if Gonti dies you still get to cast the card it Exiled.

Also Gonti can rip a Hexproof Creature out of your Opponent's deck, or an Approach of the Second Sun if you grab it when it is in the top four cards.

Playtest it and find out.

I'm tired, and cranky.

Link your deck. It's not hard.

Why should I have to copy pasta every time you want me to look at it?
