precociousapprentice, true but I think Comeuppance is somewhat less conditional. it has the flexibility of punishing a greedy X spell to the face as well as being a one-sided boardwipe. Plus it's one mana cheaper which is relevant. I'm very happy with Comeuppance while Thrilling Encore is wait and see :)

Bloodytrailz, thanks for your feedback regarding Thrilling Encore. I agree that it's a meta call to an extent. My meta plays with quite a lot of wraths as control is the most common archetype in my playgroup. It's almost guaranteed that someone will wrath the board as the table becomes cluttered with creatures. I have been using Thrilling Encore in response to their boardwipes, not my own. Having said all that, the card is a little conditional. I'm not entirely convinced yet that it's worth holding up 5 mana for. I'm testing it out but it could find itself on the chopping block.

precociousapprentice, thanks for taking the time to respond. I agree with you about Erebos. He's been in the deck for a while and performs very well. Shutting off opponents' lifegain is actually quite valuable too. It prevents opponents from "getting out of range" of being killed in the later game. I think I'm going to keep Twilight Prophet for now. She is performing decently and having a flier with reasonably high toughness can be valuable in the deck too.

I haven't cut Curse of Opulence yet...it's just on my list of potential cuts. I agree with your reasoning behind it. I'm just wondering if there may be another option that fulfills that function better. I put Rite of the Raging Storm back in a couple updates ago and it fulfills that role beautifully, giving each opponent a beater that can be used to attack anyone EXCEPT me. I'm thinking of giving Orzhov Advokist another chance in this role. Again it allows opponents to attack anyone except me and gives them a buff to do so. I think my main concern with Curse of Opulence it that it forces me to pick one opponent to put the target on...my hands are on the bloody weapon. Rite of the Raging Storm and Orzhov Advokist provide a general incentive without forcing me to choose who opponents should target.

Any further thoughts on this?

Hey buddy, curious to hear what you think about the changes I've made to my deck (plus what I'm considering cutting) if you have a moment to check them out...thanks!

CalciumStrength, thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely look at picking up a Garruk. Also agree with Scavenger Grounds going in here. I've been running it in more and more decks. Just need another copy.

Riverdare, nice suggestion...thanks!

Bloodytrailz, I should have read the card more closely. you're right it doesn't allow me to dictate where the creatures attack. that makes the card significantly worse than I thought. as you mention, I suspect opponents will attack me out of spite to prove a point (even with pillowfort up).

Totally agree with you about your assessment of Stolen Strategy. It's been a great addition. It just expands the options available for me each turn and is very on theme with using an opponent's weapons against them.

I'm reconsidering my stance on Grab the Reins. I think I've been evaluating it incorrectly. I'm still down on the fact it doesn't untap the stolen creature, but I actually think it's less of a Threaten effect and more of a Backlash effect that then removes the creature after it "backlashes". It gets around indestructible since it sacrifices the target. 7 mana is quite a lot for that effect but it does have the flexibility of being a reasonably costed Act of Aggression in a pinch. I'm thinking of trialing it. What are your thoughts?

Also thinking of trying Master Warcraft as another win con option. I can't remember if you've shared your thoughts on this card before.
