yea there's actually a lot of complexity and small hidden synergies in this deck. The Mishra's Bauble puts an artifact in the yard and thins the deck,and Tarfire is better than Lightning Bolt because it turns on Traverse the Ulvenwald. Street Wraith does kinda the same thing, and you can also do Street Wraith - bauble - fetchland to set up your draws, almost like Sensei's Divining Top.
It doesn't look like much on paper, but all the little values add up to big wins. You're basically drawing more Tarmogoyfs than they have answers to Tarmogoyf.

Right, I need to just bite the bullet and make the cut. Dismember is coming out for the 4th Street Wraith. I can draw into disruption if needed, and the Wraith thins the deck and synergizes with Mishra's Bauble and fetchlands.

I did change Bob to a Grim Flayer though

it's hard though, because with just 1 copy of Bob and Traverse the Ulvenwald it's like having 5 copies against a control deck. I think where I'm going with this is moving even further away from the Temur Battle Rage builds from when Gitaxian Probe was legal into an even more midrange-toolbox deck, almost kinda like Birthing Pod, but with just a tutor element instead of revolving around tutors and tutoring different ways to get them dead instead of hate bears.

Yea I was thinking about that too but if I'm going slower and more controlling I like having tutorable toolbox creatures. It's a tough choice, basically comes down to how "fast" the format is and what decks I really need to beat. But yea Wraith-Bauble-Fetch is a thing so I should probably be on 4 wraith

well there's also the maindeck rallier, and I have 8 fetchlands that can get the Godless Shrine
February 24, 2017 5:51 p.m.
yea I didn't know Mishra's Bauble was up to $20 lol, I already have at least 8 though.

well it's not meant to be a budget deck. I just forgot to mark it as competitive, sorry.

Maybe you just aren't looking at it right, because variations of this strategy have been coming up over the last week.
February 24, 2017 5:36 p.m.
yea I was actually thinking Ratchet Bomb would kill it too, eventually.

considered a, but not enough zombies. Would have to waste slots on bad cards like Diregraf Ghoul to make it work.

I guess. That still saves 3 life though. Sideboard options are pretty limited in a mono colored deck. There's not much to use there besides something like Sun Droplet, and the Aetherborn's double black casting cost synergizes with Grey Merchant.

I think the Gifted Aetherborn fits here, similar decks in the past have used Vampire Nighthawk and the matchups where you want them such as Burn or Zoo hurt more from it coming down a turn earlier. The Grey Merchant of Asphodel is some solid lifegain, but it's too slow against Burn.
