Apakakuta Deckling

I am a Johnny-spike player, my local LGS's know me for my insane brews. I am a BUG (Sultai) fanatic that is my favorite color combination.

I love to build tweak and tune decks. You will see most of my time on tapped out is helping other players with their decks.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa is a great one most blackwater decks just can't remove him at all.

Then after that I'm unsure what you'd want.

I'd trade in one Essence Warden and another Path to Exile instead of Wall of Roots to start after that maybe consider other cards such as Qasali Pridemage or Voice of Resurgence

I'll have to check the reddit page out.

I've been a fan of BUG for as long as I've been playing.

Mana base will need some tuning and refinement.

My opinion on Grim Flayer is he is a fantastic card. Pros -Fast clock Great filtering Plays well with delveWorks great at finding cards for MU'sCons-Deck building constraint Fights with snapcaster Alters the feel of the deckFights archetype plans due to "diversity"

Indian total I've found the card to be great but it's hard to fit into a set controlling strategy. And sadly BUG isn't as good at midrange as other BGx decks such as Abzan and Jund.

He also seems unfavorable in the switch in current modern meta.

Did you want to exchange contact information and talk a bit?

Don't be afraid to ask about stuff I'm not secretive about my findings or knowledge.

If you have questions or even theories to discuss by all means contact me with them if you would like.

I've found Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as a great card in a vast majority of MU's he is actually maindeck for me most times.

But if you want him in the SB I'd recommend him over Relic of Progenitus. Overall you have to remember SB is a personal tune of the deck you have cards there for your personal play.

Which MU's do you feel need a bump? Or what are difficult decks to play against? Think on that and make the board line up to that.

As a note my sideboard is rarely the same for a given week I change my board almost every event.

One of my major concerns is your lack of ways to kill creatures above 4 cmc.

Delve creatures, anything from tron,half the eldrazi deck and oddballs like the occasional Primeval Titan or Stormbreath Dragon.

I've been piloting decks most of my time playing magic. ( I even branded my forearm with a sultai inspired tattoo.) So this is not a comment of just seeing the list an going oh you need this or that.

I have countless hours of play and testing on a vast variety of BUG builds and the occasional big thing often is what kills me if anything.

So having the Murderous Cut, and/or Go for the Throat really helps hedge that weakness.

Before Fatal Push what I'd often lose to are manlands, Delver of Secrets  Flip hitting me a few times too many, same is true of other aggressive 1 drops. And the big hit threats like Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

Fatal push shores up the aggro decks and is a great help for creature lands. Hell it can even get the occasional 4 drop. (Cough Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet cough) however in my testing currently most of the losses come to the top end threats and you having no way to get them I see as issue.

Hopefully that helps a bit.

Also side note I've enjoyed Tombstalker over Gurmag Angler.One more black for flying :).

One concern that I'd have is you don't get the full benefit off Sram's Expertise you get your 3 servo's and then fuse Beck / Call to get 4 birds and draw 4 cards. Not quite the dream of getting 7 tokens and drawing 7 cards.

Now while in theory seems good you are taking away some key elements of what makes Abzan/Junk such a good deck. By putting in Beck / Call a mostly Uncasville spell into your deck and hoping to "combo" it with another card(Sram's Expertise) clunky to your strategy takes away from the count on interaction and the consistency in which you will find it.

Am I saying that it won't work? No, certainly that is why we test. I'm simply voicing my concern on this.

Wolf_Haley trolling here with an irrelevant comment is rude and ignorant. If you're only being a sarcastic arse then say so or prove your point to your claim intellectually. YuGiOh is better because,"X Y Z". Magic lacks "W" or I like YuGiOh over Magic for "V". Just coming in and "blaaarrgghh rahhh rahhh", does not prove anything and is childish.

Do you have any sense what the game of Magic is? If you do, you would understand MTG has been around since 1993 mainstream or 1991 in testing and pre-production amongst Richard Garfield and a few friends. Sorry to tell you this but Magic came before YuGiOh. MTG has more players world wide making it a more successful game,so saying it is "trash" is a null comment.

Now if you are saying it about this deck give a valid reason. This deck will not work because "U" and "T" prevent it from being a competitive deck. If you can't state and discuss why things are then you should just not open your mouth to make moronic statements.
