What is in a name:

Minous enunciated: My-nuss; Mancer enunciated: Manzir;

Mancer(Magus; Mage; Magic Wielder), magic sculptor, one who shapes Magical power or Mana to ones will;

i.e Necromancer: Necro meaning death, so a Necromancer is one who wields, channels, controls and bends death-magic to their will.

I am a Necromancer of the Omega Order, first & foremost. Though I do enjoy manipulating other Planeswalkers minds & Mana.

I was born in Urborg, abandoned & left to die. I was rescued & raised by Thrull necromancers until I was a teenager. Then I was put into the care/custody of the Ebon Hand. Where I learned about & became to idolize and almost worshiping Lim-Dul. Eventually becoming one of his multiple apprentices. Not advancing fast enough for my liking, so I stole an Icy Manipulator, a Mox Jet, some Lotus Petals, & a Zuran Orb. I fled to the Ivory Tower(s) in Terisia to further my studies & under the shadows of night perform my experiments. To learn ancient Dark Rituals unlocking the secret of Necropotence.

When my Master Lim-Dul, The Necromancer was defeated. I was in utter shock. I felt that my Master had been betrayed. Fueled w/ rage & remorse I hunted down & slayed Lim-Dul's paladin. Not finding the answers I sought I hunted down The Lord of Tresserhorn. Raised his stronghold to the ground defeating him. In his last dying words, he said "It, was, ...Lashrac...

My utter disbelief, rage, confusion, & raw Necromatic-rage ignited my Spark! Everything went Red then Azure, & eventually Black.

I awoke in a cave. Years later, on a wasteland filled with pockmarks with Nectro-mechanical creatures all around some with vast dark Mana radiating off them. In the distance I could see castles & vast armies.

I attempted to tap into my own energies, it was like trying to pull an Aurochs w/ chains from a bog. Then out of an explosive & silent black cloud of Mana lined in Azule Mana he stood before me. Tall, dark, & radiating energy, he said to me "It's Minous, Minousmancer?" which I replied by squinting at him. He then said "we need to go, Phyrexia is not safe for you." he grabbed my left shoulder and in a swirling ink blot like that of a Kraken the world we were in was gone, in the blink of an eye.

We were transported to what I later found out was Innistrad. He explained to me what Planeswalking was & how I had become a Planeswalker. He told me that this plane would help me reconnect with my access to Black Mana. He gave me a Grimoire of the Dead, a Ghoulcallers Bell, & a Witchbane Orb. Then planeswalked away. Alone, mildly confused yet excited about the possibilities of what my new powers could mean I wandered Innistrad. Gathering my strength, harnessing my powers. Testing my capabilities. Raised an army of undead and made a few packs with some Werewolf tribes. We held back the disease infected humans who had contracted vampirousy. We were triumphant. We reached a treaty.

One day I felt this massive pull to leave, I didn't understand it. it was like my Mana wanted me to go somewhere I just couldn't understand it. It went on for months. I set up a consultation w/ the only other Planeswalker I knew. I knew of Liliana, she by then was infamous in the Necromatic circle of Innistrad. I talked with Sorin, he told me to ignore it. Said it was probably just my powers adjusting...

So, one day the pull just stopped. the Demonlord Ormendahl Had taken Griselbrand's place. Sorin & Liliana had both left Innistrad. There was nothing left for me & I could hear the cries of the dead calling me. A silvery, Black & Blue fog the color of gun powder enveloped me & like that I Planeswalked for the first time finding myself on Theros, where I learned of the War of the Spark as well as the defeats of Yawgmoth & Bolas.

Learning about Yawgmoth & his defeat before I ever woke on Phyrexia became a focus of intense study of mine...

Now equipped with my Soul-Guide Lantern, a Nyx Lotus, & my recently acquired Zagoth Crystal, That Gray Merchant of Asphodel had no idea the power the Crystal contains. I've just Planeswalked into an area known as Zagoth, on the Plane of Ikoria. This everglade like marshland overflowing w/ Dark & powerful reserves of Mana. I've met some strange & interesting creatures. So far I'm only able to focus the Mana here through the Crystal.

I've summoned a familiar. His name is Umori, he is a collector of power stones like myself. He has collected a Zagoth Crystal as well. He claims to be from Indatha, which is another land here on Ikoria. Currently I'm studying Zagoth & it's energies. Soon I will have full access to the powers of this land.

Maybe I will turn this place into my New Ice-Age. An Ice-Age of Ikoria

Planes/Times where my power is Highest: Dominariaā€ˇ during the Ice Age Innistrad through it's Dark Ascension and Restoration Theros' Underworld invasion of Nyx In areas such as: Zagoth; W/ Allies/Spies in Esper; Azorius; Golgari; Orzhov;

I like Black, usually Suicide-Black. Because raw it's power at a price of your soul and life. ..

I like Blue, because it's complicated, it's manipulation of Mana and schemes, & disruption of well laid plans. It's the color of precognition & control. ...

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.

Couple questions:

These aren't listed in any order of priority...

1) Can we have it so if we type in the Godzilla card name of a creature that version of the card art will post/be listed.

2) When a Companion card is listed can it be changed so if I have cards in my Sideboard that don't meet my Companions restrictions it won't say my Companion isn't legal. i.e Say my Companion is Umori, the Collector and i chose creatures. My deck is all creatures no spells, artifacts, or Planeswalkers yet in my Sideboard there might be an enchantment or eight. Can we change it so it doesn't say: "Legality": "This deck is not valid to have Umori, the Collector as a companion"

3) How come when I try to delete decks the never go away? They'll say this deck is scheduled to delete in one or two hours. I sign back on eight hours later and a deck I've been trying to delete for two to three months is still there. I have fifteen pages of decks and I only want four to six.

4) Can we edit and or update the deck hubs? Maybe add: Muay Thai, where Aikido is solely defensive, Muay Thai is more if you attack me or cast spells at me or my permanents it's going to hurt you; Maybe add the Triome colors to the color combinations like Zagoth not just Sultai; Cycling; Flash; Companion; Treachery (for decks built around cards like Agent of Treachery, Portent of Betrayal, Act of Treason), Thrulls(I mean we have Saprolings); Satyr; Maybe delete: four color(all five colors in their different combinations are already there); Birthing Pod; Dark Depths; does Izzet Phoenix really need it's own catagory? It's not covered under Izzet or Phoenix?; Pox; Storm; Suicide Black(Isn't Mono-Black usually that anyway?); Maybe change Tron to Urza-Tron so people don't confuse it with Voltron;

5) I love you guys. These aren't complaints just my ideas. I've been on here for awhile because Tapped out rocks.

Nightmare Shepherd is a recent add, I'm curious what it might look like in a game so just trying one for now.

So I just brewed this, Zillagoth Nights recently.

I noticed say Ilmu011's comment and then your reply abby315 and realized how similar they were.

Are you now running Umori, the Collector as your companion?

May 25, 2020 3:32 a.m.

I would add 4xQuicklings to Combo with Slitherwisp.

SmarmyMarmy maybe they'll have a good Mana Dork soon. It would be amazing if they brought back Birds of Paradise... ...edited.

May 24, 2020 11:07 p.m.

With Umori, the Collector, I was say in addition to having it as a Companion also have one Maindecked.

My Manacurve comment was just an idea of one less land one more creature, maybe an Umori...

May 24, 2020 9:49 p.m.

I would replace your Spectral Sailors with Threnody Singers.

I'd think about adding 4x or so Voracious Greatsharks and maybe a Pouncing Shoreshark or two.

Maybe even Mainboard a Umori, the Collector.

With your current Manacurve, do you need twenty five lands?

I've been considering the move of Vivien, Monsters' Advocate(I want another one) it's just she's not really a sideboard card...

I am still seeing how this plays before I add Umori, the Collector in as a Companion.

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is there so I can sub out and cast Ruinous Ultimatum if they are running Fires of Invention and or Yorion, Sky Nomad.

I still have different ideas for how this deck might jump off. Hence my Maybe board. I also like the idea of adding Gilded Goose for better Ramp.

It's like, Theros Beyond Death and Ikoria have the foundation stones and building blocks but maybe Core 2021 or Zendikar Rising will have the proper mortar to solidify this deck. Thanks for the Upvote.

Anything you are working on you would like me to check out?

Several cards are glitching out of nowhere on the plates feature, new cards and cards that have worked in the past. Example, newer card not working Zagoth Triome and others. For the latter Thassa, Deep-Dwelling or Agonizing Remorse. The cards are there they are just black. You can click on them to look at larger versions and you can get a glimpse of the card name. That's it though.

Oh, for sure Necro is!

Necropotence - Necro for short.

We've been calling it that as a nickname since Black Summer.

May 21, 2020 3:53 p.m. Edited.

Also, I call Snapcaster Mage , Snapdresser Mage, I don't remember why.

I'm super on board with this especially the Godzilla names.

Yo, been a minute.

Have you looked into Ikoria and maybe a Companion for this?

May 17, 2020 1:05 a.m.


Triome and extra lands are needed for the Sidaboard game plan.

I'm willing to hear if you have any suggestions about balancing that out with less lands?

May 13, 2020 12:54 p.m.


I like the idea of this deck.

Reminds me of mine from eight years ago that I just added some updates to.

Ghostrider M let me know what you think?
