Drag0nDude Deckling

Hi! I'm a casual magic player who really enjoys building different deck with new ideas. I specialize in Standard because think it is fun to see how many cool decks you can make with such a limited amount of cards.

I can definitely see the beginnings of a good deck here. +1 from me.

Looking at the deck, my immediate suggestion would be cut 2 copies of Essence Scatter. It is a good card, but it might not be good in all of your matchups and also you have Censor, which is probably just better in this deck. another good payoff for your cycling is Archfiend of Ifnir is great, especially in the matchup against the ever-so-popular mono red aggro deck, even though it's only five mana. I would recommend 3 of these in the mainboard. Also, because of said mono red deck, 2 maindeck copies of Bontu's Last Reckoning wouldn't hurt. 4 Abandoned Sarcophagus is also great because of the ability to let you replay cards you've already cycled. You could, for example, cycle Archfiend of Ifnir on turn 2, play Abandoned Sarcophagus on turn 3, and then play archfiend on turn 5.

You should probably go up to 4 copies of Fetid Pools and down 1 Desert of the Mindful so that you can also run just 1 Desert of the Glorified.

3 of Nimble Obstructionist is also quite good just because of how versatile it is. It can be sided out in matchups where it is not very good.]

If you want to run cards like The Scarab God or even God-Pharaoh's Gift, you need more creatures that cycle. Cards like Striped Riverwinder, Curator of Mysteries and Horror of the Broken Lands are great for this. My recommendation would be a 4 of Curator of Mysteries and a 3 of Horror of the Broken Lands and Striped Riverwinder And, of course , the 4 copies of Champion of Wits are awesome, even though they don't cycle.

If you use my suggestions, the deck will add up to 39 non-land cards (I think). In order to make the deck legal for constructed play, it will need 60 cards. Of course, you still need to add lands, but I would also cut 2 copies of Supreme Will, which is a good card, but it doesn't do anything to help with your cycling theme. As for the lands, you can tweak these to fit your budget, but I would replace the Submerged Boneyards with Choked Estuarys, just a better card, and also implement the other changes to the cycling lands suggested earlier.

Sweet deck! I hope this helped. +1 vote from me.
