Zooby9 Deckling

When I was a junior in high school my friend showed me this game called Magic that I thought was stupid at first, but when I gave it a chance, I changed my mind. I found Magic to be one of the most exciting and interesting things I had ever done in my life and I love it so much. I just love seeing all of the incredible combinations that people come up with and how everyone's outlook on the game is different. This game just has so many possibilities and it's great.

cole20112 - I only put two Archfiends in because I wanted to add two Hollow Ones. I don't think the Hollow Ones have performed as well as I thought granted I have only been able to cast one for free once after a lot of playtesting. I feel like I might put the Archfiends back because you're right they are good and also the Archfiend is worth bringing back unlike the Hollow One since it's basically the same creature. I'm glad you like The Scarab God in here. He's a big body that gives me another way to bring creatures back so I figured why not put him in.

galluccinator - I know the cmc curve averages about 4 but you need to factor in the cycling cost. A lot of the cards I am almost never going to cast for their actual mana cost since it's not worth it. Many of the high mana cost creatures cycle for 1, which is really the mana cost I use them for, so if you factor that in 20 lands is fine since the avg cmc is about 2.03 factoring in the cycling costs and that I never really want to hard cast god-pharaoh's gift. Also I cycle through so much of my deck that I nearly never have a problem finding lands and almost never miss a land drop. If you playtest the deck you'll see what I'm talking about.

Have you considered putting Disallow mainboard? I know it is more expensive than your other control spells but it has the added bonus of being able to counter the ability of an artifact or enchantment that, if you didn't counter it, would be able to activate.

Calibus101 - I used to have this deck as BU, but I ended up adding white because I found I was having trouble with artifacts and enchantments. I feel like New Perspectives isn't actually that helpful because it's hard to keep 7 cards in hand, and sure it may let me cycle one or two things for free, but I don't think it's worth it. Hollow One is an amazing cycling card and should be at least a 3 of in every cycling deck because if your deck is efficient enough you can play him for free. There have been many games when I have cycled away 3 of them and then play Abandoned Sarcophagus, cycle a few things, and cast 3 of them from my graveyard for free it's amazing. Striped Riverwinder does cycle for cheap, but the card itself is pretty bad. A 5/5 for 7 is really bad to start and adding hexproof still really doesn't make it worth it.

Thank you for your comment though I appreciate the input!
