Daveslab2022: yeah he won the game, and i immediately left without finishing the match. but not before giving my opponent and the tournament organizer a piece of my mind. it didnt have an entry fee thankfully. it was just some average joes at an anime convention. but to me it seemed quite obvious those guys knew each other. because who builds a deck of 60 Chancellor of the Dross without knowing in advance they'll have an opportunity to use it?

i once played in a game in an small "anything goes" tournament, which i thought would be something like this. i saw "anything goes" and i immediately thought "vintage with no restricted cards or banned cards".

turns out it was quite literally "anything goes" and my very first opponent had a deck of 60 Chancellor of the Dross.

sylvannos: Why not just go for the gold with 4x Chancellor of the Dross , 2x Soul Spike ;)?

I don't like Scheming Symmetry , as you are losing a card for the tutor, not putting into your own hand is really painful. I do agree that it could be fun with some of the listed cards, but I don't think it will work as a two card combo, I thinnk it would need to be more "1 card combo", but I might be wrong. I do sort of hope it finds it's way into a storm list or somthing.

It'd be no fun to just include Standard legal cards, so lets just go Modern.

The first thing that would 100% happen is MonoDross. 60x Chancellor of the Dross .

Everything else would run Providence to survive it. Then they'd probably run alot of Chancellor of the Forge and Memnite or some sort of combo with Chancellor of the Tangle , Gemstone Caverns , and Simian Spirit Guide . Maybe Midnight Guard / Presence of Gond as a t2 Splinter Twin w/out haste?

One big problem is the fact that MonoDross Mirror matches would just be like "Lololol neither of us can win we both at 21 let's see who concedes first" or it would be whoever goes first wins bc the other person nat mills first.

What say you?

I play Soulflayer in a Hollow One shell, Power 4 is Ferocious, here are some general thoughts on Soulflayer. Ideally you want double strike, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink and flying obviously that number of keywords is a big ask, most of the time I'd settle for double strike, lifelink and flying, which puts Soulflayer in the answer this or die bracket. A nice way to deliver lifelink and flying is Chancellor of the Dross , your not going to play this card, but it has a minor upside if it's in your opening hand. Double strike is off colour for blue / black, but Crypt Champion is a decent option for delivering it. Indestructible I'd suggest Bontu the Glorified over Erebos, God of the Dead, it's a shame menace wasn't a keyword when Soulflayer was printed. Hexproof would be easy enough to enable with Striped Riverwinder . So that covers the keywords.

Your enablers; Returned Reveler, is nowhere near as good as Stitcher's Supplier which triggers when it enters play and when it dies. Magus of the Bazaar gives you more control over what goes to your graveyard than Armored Skaab. Lastly I'm not sure what Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is doing in this deck, you don't really have a devotion sub-theme... Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.
