shub Deckling

I enjoy combinations and permutations; hockey pools were my typical outlet. During the most recent NHL strike I started paying attention to Magic after a 15 year hiatus (this was during Innistrad Block). I was introduced to the Limited and EDH formats, and since then I've been hooked. It's taken a while to assimilate 15 years worth of cards and to hone my abilities as a deck builder. I am part of a good casual group and rarely participate in store events. I also enjoy the social aspect of gaming, avoiding online play to any great degree (I do practice drafting here).

Hey Jagg3r5, I've reconsidered using Mathas; it's a fun political card. I've yanked Odric, Lunarch Marshal for it after replacing Stuffy Doll with Urabrask the Hidden.

I will definitely consider Reverse the Sands... that's exactly the kind of card I'm going for, and might make a decent substitute for Wound Reflection.

Thank you for your comment Jagg3r5.

I thought about including Mathas in the 99 but his draw effect is slow, conditional, and benefits others. Marchesa provoking my opponents is almost part of the plan: it gives me a clear political choice when I get to swap my life total with my abusers.

How about swinging with Stuffy Doll and forcing your opponent to block it with everything?

How about cards that you can abuse by forcing blocks? You have Infiltration Lens, but Godsend and Stuffy Doll also come to mind.

You make a good point; Omnath is clunky in comparison to what you're already running.

Since Mirror Gallery is such a lynch pin for this deck, have you considered a couple of legendary creatures that combo with Deceiver for the win without it? I'm thinking Kokusho, the Evening Star or Omnath, Locus of Rage

Thanks for your comments elgosu1337, I'll take a close look at your suggestions. There are plenty of ways to abuse Deceiver; I'm happy to see someone else built a deck around it.
