Thanks I added Cast Down and I think it's ready for me to play :) of course if you have more criticism I'd love to hear it but I think I'll try playing my friends with it :).

Popped in off reddit.

Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , Dark Ritual , plus some of the other mentioned rocks in the reddit comment section.

Crypt Ghast , Nirkana Revenant are amazing. Cabal Stronghold is great, too, although Cabal Coffers and Lake of the Dead are much better if you happen to have a couple hundred lying around.

Definitely pick up some more spot removal such as Doom Blade , Cast Down , etc. Other than that, maybe a few more card draw spells. Read the Bones is amazing.

After that, you just need to tune it to your liking.

Hi lagotripha !

Thanks for the suggestions! I like Arboreal Grazer a lot but I don't think 17 lands is enough to make it consistent. I like the body and reach, though.

I actually tested out Migratory Greathorn for a long while! It was okay, but it feels really bad to mutate on something only to have it get Cast Down ed, leaving only a land to show for it. I hadn't thought about Essence Symbiote, though. That's some cool tech. If only there was a bit more mutate to work with...

I think I used to have Mold Shambler in the sideboard and it was pretty good. Slaughter Horn is another new one I like.

I think you're talking about Frenzied Arynx ? There's also Wrecking Beast and Rampaging Rendhorn that I like a lot. Haste on Green fatties is really powerful.

Howdy! I think your take on this deck is a decent one! That card seems really good! Another payoff (possibly sideboard) would be Carrion Feeder get huge. I've seen a similar brew online that used Rendclaw Trow and Ivy Lane Denizen .

If you're leaning into the combo, Shred Memory acts as a tutor. Faithless Looting is another resilient way to continue to cycle through your deck.

Sideboard is always meta dependent, but currently I don't see a whole lot of interaction with your opponent in the deck. Combo decks always run the risk of being run over by aggro. So things like Lightning Bolt Fiery Cannonade Cast Down Abrade can go a long ways in dealing with Affinity or Elves. Control matchups are a nightmare, though your combo seems pretty resilient. Pyroblast helps resolve needed spells.

Would also experiment with having some of the Lessons like Introduction to Prophecy Introduction to Annihilation Environmental Sciences as one offs just so you still get value from going for the combo win even if your opponent messes with that interaction!

Have you considered Dismember over Cast Down ? With all the vampires with built in life link, in addition to Vampiric Link , I’d wager it’s worth it to have a less restrictive creature removal spell for one less mana (it can sneak around Indestructible too). Just an idea; Cast Down is pretty on point as is.

i know this is like a few years late but i'm new to the format and just now saw this and i think these are some good replacements/additions Village Rites instead of Altar's Reap (not Costly Plunder tho plunder is good) cheaper same speed /n Cast Down instead of Eyeblight's Ending or Victim of Night because at most Cast Down wont hit 1 creature whereas Eyeblight's Ending and Victim of Night might straight up whiff against some decks Sign in Blood instead of Victim of Night because it can finish a game and you're playing all of 2 lands that dont produce black mana you might want to shove in a Gurmag Angler somewhere it's just on color and theme

I'm going to go ahead and start on ramp here, you have only a couple pieces of pretty bad ramp.

So I really recommend picking up Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Wild Growth , Rakdos Signet , Golgari Signet and Gruul Signet . Those are all really good because they can come down early, they get you more mana to play Mario and Luigi earlier, they can help you play your bigger cards earlier, and they can be sacrificed to the brothers.

If you want to find room, Cultivate , Harrow , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , and Boundless Realms are all really really good, but not quite as necessary here as they can't be sacrificed to the brothers.

A couple other random suggestions that work great here are Solemn Simulacrum , Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , and Burnished Hart .

The player with the most mana is often the player in the best position in EDH, so mana ramp is important.

You also want some good interaction, which isn't quite as relevant with the brothers but it's still very important. Rakdos Charm , Terminate , Abrade , Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy (which are a bit pricier), Doom Blade effects such as Cast Down , Ultimate Price , Go for the Throat and Heartless Act , Lightning Bolt , Nature's Claim are all pretty solid ones. The purpose is just to be able to stop someone from killing you, remember not to be aggressive and kill things without reason.

Casualties of War is pretty cool too, I just like the card.
