Help me understand the inclusion of Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, and Wooded Foothills. Looks to me like they let you spend a little life to essentially play with a 51-card deck. Are they included just for the deck thinning and extra chances to get Sacred Foundry? Also, with 9 of these, backed by just 3 Mountains and 1 Sacred Foundry, one could end up with one or more of these in hand that have no legitimate targets left in the deck. I guess the idea there is to win before it matters?

Finally, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep strikes me as kind of random too. It won't hurt anything, but with no targets for its gives-first-strike ability, it's mainly just a cool Mountain, seems like.

Very nice deck concept! :-)

I like this. I have a Sacrifice - Undying deck that needs sharpening up and there may be some good ideas for me here.

I was looking at Bueller's That's a Nice Hand ... Shame if You Lost It deck again tonight, and I'm feeling inspired to maybe buy a few cards and try to update this deck a little. Looking at Phenax, God of Deception, Eater of the Dead, and Consuming Aberration for starters. It would bring the curve a bit higher, which I'd have to compensate for.

Always glad to contribute.

It's a shame this deck doesn't run a bit of blue. That would be a major change, but think of what it could buy you. There are some really good mill cards in blue, and you could run Phenax, God of Deception. That and a few cheap, tough defenders could give you blockers to buy you time and serve as mill engines later. Phenax also combos beautifully with Eater of the Dead. And with the spot of blue, you could also cast Consuming Aberration. Finally, blue would give you access to counterspells to protect your must-have cards, like Waste Not.

There are some walls that could defend you and play well with Phenax. Still might serve in a lesser capacity without him. Cinder Wall, Wall of Corpses, Wall of Diffusion, Wall of Earth, Wall of Souls.
Vampire Nighthawk is just such value, though. It costs just 1 more than most of the walls just listed, can attack if needed, flies and has deathtouch (which is great blocking), and has lifelink to recharge you.

I've got a discard deck that uses some of these elements, but I lack the cards for some as well, including Phenax. This is inspiring me to maybe revisit my deck and incorporate some of the things from this conversation.
