Death Match

Bitterblossom

Sensei's Divining Top

Cabal Coffers

Gaea's Cradle

Caustic Caterpillar or Seal of Primordium

just some real expensive ideas. Even though it's not great, I love the flavor of death match in this deck.

I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.

So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)

Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

Here are some ideas in Abzan colors that don't use the graveyard. I don't know how useful they would be in your deck, but here they are:

  1. Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune / Sunbond = Infinite life and an / Spike Feeder
  2. Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond = Infinite tokens
  3. Conspiracy + Turntimber Ranger = Infinite tokens
  4. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Soul Warden / Essence Warden = Infinite Life
  5. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Cathars' Crusade = Infinite +1/+1 counters
  6. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Death Match = Board wipe that gets around indestructible
  7. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Genesis Chamber = Infinite Tokens
  8. Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Vizkopa Guildmage = Drain the board
  9. Tainted Remedy + Beacon of Immortality = Kill target opponent

Like I said, I don't know how many of these will be relevant in your deck, but they're some ideas.

Love the concept, you may consider Living Death for a board wipe because of the confusion of so many potential etbs can cause; also Perplexing Chimera is amusing for the sheer amount of annoyance it can cause by trading control of spells and you can further mess with people with things like Grip of Chaos , Death Match and Confusion in the Ranks . I would love to read some posts of how this deck does in games.

grays77: Hmmm. Honestly, it really depends. This deck plays several different ways and the gameplan shifts a lot and adjusts what I'm going to tutor for. Here are some examples, though:

If I have Contamination in hand, I'd tutor for Bitterblossom or any hard-to-remove consistent token source.

If I'm ahead, I'd tutor for Cataclysm to keep it that way.

If someone has cards that would mess with me (say, Rest in Peace) I'd tutor for answers.

If I have several non-creature token sources I might tutor for Death Match, especially if I have Elspeth, Sun's Champion (it works wonders when people can't use their triggers to remove my token-creators, in answer to your question).

If I'm behind I'd go for Toxic Deluge usually?

Really depends ;) I tend to only pull this out against creature-heavy decks (I have other decks, like Locust God, for when I feel like interacting with other permanents), but I haven't had huge issues with GY hate here. The deck still has its WB tokens plan without relying on the GY. Hope that helps clarify things a bit ;)

chemuzef: Thanks man! I've tinkered with Rakdos before, but he has a very "build me this way" look to him (consistent damage sources, draw, big RB/colorless win-cons), and I've just never had the major inclination to try, personally...
