DeviousPenguin666 Deckling

I like playing grindy midrange decks and control decks where my opponent isn't allowed to play the game :)

Chasmolinker thanks for the upvote and the comment! Surgical Extraction would be quite good in the sideboard but I feel like Blackmail is just a worse Thoughtseize.

Cool deck, awesome name! The one change that I would make is to cut the Rupture Spire for another basic land. It's nice having a land that gives you access to all three colors, but your mana base is already more than fine with the 8 shocks and 12 checks, and coming in tapped and having to pay a mana on entry will be terrible for your reactive mana curve. +1!

Nice deck! I would consider cutting the 2 Mountains and maybe 2 Forests for 4 Timber Gorge as you cannot afford to play a single non green mana source as you have full playsets of both Gigantosaurus and Steel Leaf Champion, but you do still want to draw red for the Sarkhan's Unsealings. This obviously isn't optimal, but it will get much better with the reprinting of Stomping Ground in standard. +1!

mprendes12 so the main reason is that I don't want to spend $100 on the other two copies, but only having two has literally never been an issue. Generally I will cast the first one whenever it is convenient, and if it is removed I won't cast the second until I am 100% stable with multiple counterspells to protect him. And if my opponent has a card like Ixalan's Binding or Sorcerous Spyglass, that makes another two cards in my deck completely dead. I have only played 14 matches with this deck at tournaments so far and have not yet played against traditional Golgari, but I did play against a Golgari Elves deck with many of the same cards that I managed to beat.

Lol it is a drake deck! For suggestions I would go -1 Sift, -2 Tormenting Voice for +3 Chart a Course. I love the Niv-Mizzets in the maindeck though, those absolutely destroy control even without attacking. Sweet deck, +1!

Feltrix oh, ok. I definitely see how Thought Erasure can be good against those problematic creatures. I think Notion Rain is probably better in my deck because of the amount of 2 mana countermagic I play but I can definitely see the advantage of Chemister's Insight in this deck.

Sweet deck! I am and have been a huge fan of any blue control deck for years now, and I would definitely recommend at least one Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip somewhere in the 75. I also think that while Chemister's Insight is at instant speed, Notion Rain is probably just better. I could be wrong about that, but I think it could at least be worth a try. I would also go up +1 Negate and +2 Essence Scatter in the mainboard and move the Thought Erasures to the sideboard as they can be a bit clunky with countermagic. Awesome deck though! I really like the look of Phyrexian Scriptures in here. +1!
