Murphy77 Deckling

Started collecting and playing MTG in September 2015. Still very much a nooby. I have a limited number of pre-origons cards and am trying to build a competitive deck/s with cards that I do already have.

I made a similar list, but haven't played it at an FNM yet.... see All Colour All Cycle

I should think that you would want 4 Scarab Feast in your side-board to use in a mirror-match. You really want as many cycle lands as possible as these will give you your endless cycle once your combos go off. I would certainly play 2 Cast Out in place of Compelling Deterance and Fling. I like Gift of Paradise for this deck, but am not too sure how to fit it in. I would definitely move Dissenter's Deliverance to the side-board to add Flameblade Adept and/or Gift of Paradise

Having to tap both Loam Dryad and another creature for 1 mana just seems a little clumsy. I would prefer something like Naga Vitalist in this position. With Mirrorwing or Zada on the field, Aim High or Ornamental Courage are likely to give more value than Saheeli's Artistry (which is your only blue card)

Have you thought about Sin Prodder?

Playing New Perspectives allows you to cycle at no cost. Shadow of the Grave can then return cycled cards to your hand. I would also look at Faith of the Devoted, Ruthless Sniper, Wasteland Scorpion and all and instants and sorceries with cycle abilities.

The idea is good. I would look to play 2 Fevered Visions for more card draw and 2 Perpetual Timepiece to move cards that you need to use again from the graveyard to your library.

I would go with Drana, Liberator of Malakir over Bone Picker and would try to work in Retreat to Kazandu

Yes, definitely, for a straight Exert deck Glorybringer and Hooded Brawler are very strong. There are actually a number of ways to un-tap them to get their effect more often.

I am a bit confused by Archangel Avacyn  Flip which could wipe all your own creatures and tokens. I would rather include something like Cast Out

Champion of Rhonas and Benefaction of Rhonas with Rhonas's Monument to summon your big-hitters. Yes, mana-dorks to ramp your mana will help, Rashmi and Nissa can give you a card advantage, etc. I would, however like to see more focus to the rest of your deck, which looks like a random collection of cards with cool effects.

You have 2 good strategies (Exert and Ulamog Cheat). I am not, however, convinced that it is a good idea to try and combine them in a single deck. I have been playing with similar ideas.

For (mainly) human Exert, I ended up with Exerted Combat.

For the Ulamog Cheat, I am leaning toward AKH Ulamog Cheat

Approach of the Second Sun only has to be cast, so before it resolves you can use Commit to place it 2 from the top, or Failure to return it to your hand.

New Perspectives is vital for this deck and I would want 3 or 4 in the deck. With Shadow of the Grave, you can virtually cycle through your deck at will, returning cycled cards to your hand to play again and again. Maybe something to pull Shadow of the Grave from the grave. I have seen people have a lot of success with similar decks that also include Approach of the Second Sun as a game-ender (going 5-colour).

Rhonas's Monument could add value. In Energizer Elephant, I also tried to speed up the mana curve.

Thraben Inspector for card draw is just clumsy. Chandra, Torch of Defiance will do a better job. Not Forgotten gets single cards back into play. Perpetual Timepiece allows you to shuffle your graveyard back into your library for more opportunities to play Dusk (if you haven't played Dawn.

May 10, 2017 3:40 p.m.

Have you considered Combat Celebrant and Sin Prodder in place of Soul-Scar Mage (Combat Celebrant could effectively give most creatures double strike). I also like Chandra, Torch of Defiance for this deck (maybe in place of 2 Magma Spray)

I am still working on my version of this deck (Exerted Combat) and can't yet provide all the answers.

Definitely Thopter Arrest instead of Cast Out (why pay more mana for the effect?). My choice: Combat Celebrant for Thraben Inspector, Immolating Glare for Fiery Temper and Harnessed Lightning for Shock.

#18

There are a number of cards that I just don't like for a deck like this. See what you think of Exerted Combat. Maybe that can give you a few pointers.
