sfolsom2006 theres the problem... I usually win by turn 4 lol don't need the card draw... jokes aside some card draw combos that have been good

  1. Final Parting into Vilis, Broker of Blood & Reanimate which you can definitely do on budget, and when you reanimate vilis you auto draw 8 cards because of the life loss from reanimate

  2. Skullclamp which you can keep killing off your shadowborn and drawing more which also fits with your Dictate of Erebos (mana for skull clamp is the only hard part but can be solved by adding Carnival of Souls or some other kind of ritual or spells say like Skirge Familiar

  3. Vilis, Broker of Blood if you dont have shadowborn apostles to sac for razaketh grab vilis instead and you can cast shadowborn for life and draw more... then you will have enough to grab razzy and win.

  4. Peer into the Abyss if you play this and you draw rituals or even just cast shadowborn sac get razaketh, then tutor songs of the damned you can win

  5. Just tutor these options doesn't matter what tutors just have some.

you have lots more draw options than the original deck so you should be good. Just think outside the box and strategies will pop up. Weird things that you would have never thought of.

I own my deck in paper but i proxy a few like grim monolith, city of traitors, and divine top.. don't be afraid to proxy you can make some solid ones.

"Also, I have no idea how to give you credit for the original deck construction, is there a place I can tag you for credit?"

This is usually done by putting a hyperlink in the description then posting the website so people can click on it if need be. Thanks for asking and it's all good I appreciate you actually trying lol. do let me know when you fix your problems with the deck i would like to hear how yours goes.

Ayara, First of Locthwain and Zulaport Cutthroat literally counter Carnival of Souls negative effects and it you run Bontu's Monument things get even better. You don’t drop it turn one, just when your ready to make your move or have stabilized.

Cloudstone Curio works amazingly here. Ive ran it since my original build and never have questioned its usefulness. You should reconsider and do some testing.

  1. "I tried this deck without any tutors except Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded, added some redundant pieces like Cruel Celebrant, and added more draw too. It still had a whiff rate I didn't like. So I'm shooting for a tuned 80%."

Have you tried Vilis, Broker of Blood instead of rune-scared? Rune tutors 1 thing.. vilis lets you keep drawing and playing shadowborn

  1. "I did see Aetherflux Reservoir as a popular win condition. I've played it in other decks before so I thought I would try something different here. I think it fits in the same spot as Mortal Combat for me. What do you think about either of these? I kind of like having a free win card in the deck."

I like free win cards.. I would have one in every deck if i could.

  1. "Peer into the Abyss I had not even thought of here. It makes sense in the same way Ad Nauseam does but what's interesting is that 1/3 of the cards I would eventually discard at end of turn would be Shadowborn Apostles. So if there is a Immortal Servitude effect in hand that is bonkers! I might have to try this out to understand it better. Funny how I'm OK with this kind of half life risk but not Carnival of Souls. :D"

Now just imagine you had Edgewalker on the field with blood artist, and phyrexian altar.

Yes you are right Carnival of Souls is aggressive.. you have the cards to make it not so much. Example... Blood Artist and a sac outlet you could secret salvage without Edgewalker and still cast all of your shadowborn. It is an acquired taste lol.

Your decklist is fun and i'm glad people are still making these.

Btw here is my deck if you want a look.

Hey thanks GreenHamma!

I tried this deck without any tutors except Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded, added some redundant pieces like Cruel Celebrant, and added more draw too. It still had a whiff rate I didn't like. So I'm shooting for a tuned 80%.

Carnival of Souls is too aggressive for me. I see how it is appealing but the downsides are costly.

Peer into the Abyss I had not even thought of here. It makes sense in the same way Ad Nauseam does but what's interesting is that 1/3 of the cards I would eventually discard at end of turn would be Shadowborn Apostles.

I like the deck gave you an upvote. There are a couple questions I have...

  1. what level are you trying to be with this deck?

  2. what do you think about Aetherflux Reservoir, Carnival of Souls, Peer into the Abyss

Hey Masterful, love the build! I have a card I keep thinking about I'm curious what you think. How do you think Carnival of Souls in Teysa? If it's a good fit what would you cut?
