RNR_Gaming Geier and Mikokoro do a lot for me!

The issue is that Contamination isn't good in this list outside of that, and we don't have the consistent need for that Bitterblossom style effect. The net result is a non-winning combo that both pieces are bad outside of. I'm not going to run it, unless a major change like making this list closer to a rankle style deck with recursive creatures etc. becomes the goal!

Lurrus seems incredibly fun- but not necessarily for a control deck. Although Orzhov control, while lacking in counter spells, has basically everything else you need.

It’s got board wipes, premium removal, card advantage, and a vast assortment of finishers.

If you did go that route I would play a lot cheap permanents like Dark Confidant and Stitcher's Supplier for card advantage, Bitterblossom for lots of blockers. Notreally any aggressive cards. You finishers being walkers like Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

Hey keizerbuns, I like your deck! I’m not sure if you are on a budget, but I have a few suggestions you may like:

I would move the Surgical Extraction to the sideboard and drop the Cathedral Membrane and Phyrexian Arenas. In their place I would run 4 Street Wraith for “free” drawing and include 4 Thoughtseize to preemptively remove threats.

I would also include at least 2 Bitterblossom on the sideboard to boost your defensive capabilities against decks with flyers. I don’t see any creature removal in the 75. You may want to make room for a few Dismember too.

Daveslab2022 on Cards that hold a special ...

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite was my first ever pull from a booster- so that was exciting. My buddy flipped because he saw it was a mythic and explained it was the best rarity you could get. Obviously the ability was pretty sick too.

My favorite cards, however, due solely to flavor, and spice are

Dark Confidant dude absolutely oozes flavor, and he was created for Bob Maher, who I’ve heard is a really cool guy. So double points.

Bitterblossom is also perfectly flavorful for black and the set it was printed in. Also that original art is excellent good.

Thoughtseize holds a special place in my heart, winning me a “major” tournament (an SCG Open IQ only like 50 dudes but it was supposed to be bigger, won me a free entry and a bye in the first round of the SCG Open, where I absolutely tanked and went 2-4, including my bye win lol.).

And lastly Crackling Doom. Was an auto 4 of in all my mardu decks during KTK standard and it smashed Siege Rhino for days.

hard to suggest something for a refined list such as this one. Have you thought of playing Liliana of the Veil? Seems like a great card to hold your opponents down while beating them with a Vendilion Clique or with a wide board from Bitterblossom. That may be a more controlling route though, so I may just be suggesting that because it is what I have seen in other faerie decks.

quick note: just thought of Faerie Macabre. obviously not the best card, but it gets people sometimes if you play it.

hungry000,I understand that Long-Forgotten Gohei might not be the best card choice here. Probably Honor of the Pure is better even if I'm running spirits and Devouring Greed. I'm not opposed to change it. The reason why I'm not including Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Bitterblossom, etc... is that my purpose is not to make a really competitive deck. Let's say that my aim is to build a deck around a concept in the best way possible and in this case the concept was to make a different version of the competitive BW Tokens decks that only runs spirit tokens to take advantage of Devouring Greed.

I don't know if I explained myself well or if it even make sense, but that's the reason I'm not putting Sorin in the list.

I am not sure how much you want this deck to look like the meta yawgmoth deck, but if you're trying to get sacrifice value, the full suite of undying creatures (Young Wolf, Strangleroot Geist, and Geralf's Messenger) are all really good. I can understand that that would put a lot of pressure on your Mana base, but undying creatures are really good sacrifice value. I may be partial though because I really like undying creatures. If you don't like that route, I'd recommend running cards like Nether Traitor, Gravecrawler, Gutterbones, or even Bloodsoaked Champion. Another card that seems good here would be Bitterblossom/Dreadhorde Invasion if you are worried about cards like Path to Exile or graveyard hate. Hope this was helpful.

Really solid build, and I particularly like the artwork on that variant Path to Exile. I hadn’t seen that version of the card before, it reminds me of Bitterblossom’s artwork. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the same artist. Quite nice!
