DarkMagician Deckspert

Started playing casually (and by that I mean with friends who supplemented their limited knowledge of how to play with made up rules) in 2001. Nowadays I play mostly casual (with the real rules) but occasionally do Modern tournaments.

I don't play decks, I play graveyards. Reanimate, Animate Dead, Eternal Witness and Snapcaster Mage type cards make me uber happy. Why cast a card once when you can cast it 10, 15, 20 or even 25 times? (Yes I have cast a single card 25 times in one game solely because a friend said I couldn't, I Pondered very deeply in that game). <<

TheDevicer My thoughts exactly... Though you put it much more eloquently than I ever could have.

Actually overlooked the fact that it tapped for mana.

1) Gitaxian Probe - Any deck can run this to gain advantageous information about their opponents hands while simultaneously thinning their own deck.

2/3) Lotus Petal/Simian Spirit Guide - Essentially Paupers version of Black Lotus these give free mana to accelerate into an earlier win and can be played in any deck.

4/5) Preordain/Brainstorm - Digs deep to find combo pieces.

6) Daze - Free counterspell.

7) Lightning Bolt - Cheap, efficient removal that can be used to close out a game.

8) Pestilence - Controls the board and can be extremely difficult to fight through.

Can't think of a ninth card.

What makes Ash Barrens so much better than Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds?

Boza it makes for a slightly faster clock and I can run duel lands so I don't end up short on black mana. Gonna definitely try Harvest as a one of and two Merchants leaving two slots open.

Boza the Acolyte has protection from black so he doesn't die to Pestilence (meaning I won't have to sack Pestilence after wiping the board with it) and can even prevent Rats from killing itself so it's pretty important to the decks overall game plan. I like the Merchants, maybe run two?

Working on a deck based around pairing Obsidian Acolyte with Pestilence and Crypt Rats. I've got most of the deck but it currently has five open slots in the main board so I'm looking for suggestions on what to fill those slots with. The deck is Pestilent Acolyte.
