StopShot Deckling

I play EDH, I prefer to run Mardu colors always. No opinion is greater than another, but they're always worth discussion like they are.

I see you're running Key to the City, Whispersilk Cloak, and Rogue's Passage. With this much evasion producing effects your deck could easily run the Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault combo. So long as any equipped creature deals combat damage with the sword to an opponent you can untap all your lands, take another combat step and repeat the process all over again until your opponents are thoroughly dead. You're also running Sun Titan which can recur both pieces if they're removed, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Nim Deathmantle also give near-unblockable since fear plus protection from black is nearly unblockable in of itself. Also as the last person mentioned Break Through the Line would not only give unblockable but haste as well. Your deck seems like it would be best suited to running this infinite combo. If you do run this combo I'd also suggest using Nether Traitor for having haste, shadow, cheap recursion, and being a cute draw engine with Skullclamp.

Key to the City and Whispersilk Cloak are good. If you feel they are consistent or you're planning on adding more effects like those I'd recommend Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault. Dealing combat damage with sword attached untaps your lands, which lets you take another combat step, which untaps your lands... and so on and so forth so long as the creature connects which shouldn't be problematic if the creature can't be blocked. You don't even need unblockable either. Since the sword gives protection from black, creatures with fear practically become unblockable as well if equiped. The best creature for this would be Nether Traitor though which comes with haste, unblockable, and easy recursion as well as conveniently working as Skullclamp fuel in the early game. The combo is also quite durable considering Sun Titan can pull either piece out of the graveyard if they get destroyed.

My first best draw engine in my Alesha deck is Skullclamp paired with Bloodghast and Bitterblossom. Since recursion and production is free I end up drawing for Skullclamp's equip cost.

My second best draw engine is Land Tax and Scroll Rack. Land Tax puts three basic's in my hand and Scroll Rack replaces them along with excess lands for more cards drawn. Then on my next turn Land Tax shuffles my deck, so I don't redraw the lands I tucked on top of my deck. Basically let's you Ancestral Recall every turn.

My third best engine is simply Mask of Memory, which draws two with a cheap casting and equip cost and let's you put something really good into your graveyard to reanimate for next turn, so it's almost like a bonus.

Said on List of EDH ......


Mask of Memory makes for very powerful draw effects in colorless.
