I really like what you're doing here. I returned to MTG about a year ago after a long time off, so I really only play Standard because I don't have the cards or knowledge to play Modern. I don't mind the smaller cards pool though, because I think that the game has gotten so big and some cards were never really meant to be played together. I think it allows for smarter brews like this to flourish. The meta has gotten better recently too, but it was definitely a Simic mess not too long ago.

This is how I like to play Standard. Find cards that are good and exploit them without spending $500 or 36 mythic wildcards to build a deck. Recently, I have had success building around Demonic Embrace in my deck Cacophony of Fears (Lurrus is not really a $25 card, don't know where TappedOut got that)

I would love to see what you put together with Enigmatic Incarnation. The other two cards are interesting. I don't know how I've missed Underworld Sentinel this whole time. I've seen Dance of the Manse played with a good deal of success (often with Doom Foretold). I've never seen anyone play Enigmatic Incarnation and it's a cool looking card worthy of a savvy brew.

Keep it up! i Love to see some fresh ideas in Standard!

mikeb388 I think my Demonic Embrace beats your Doom Foretold deck though

Hey man took a look at the list vs. Shrine of Uro and I'd say the biggest threats are the hand hate cards, it can slow down the plan a bit but other than that there isnt much here that worries me. Shrines can be vulnerable to heavy and fast aggro but not much else from what I've played so far.

You dont have any creatures to threaten my life total with if I get a Sanctum of Stone Fangs to stick. You might say Banishing Light or Doom Foretold are your answers but Elspeth Conquers Death, my own Banishing Lights, Ruinous Ultimatum or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon deal with them very well.

Have you thought about going Mardu... () yourself? It opens up a lot of possibilities for damage in red but more importantly Ruinous Ultimatum which can cripple decks, shrines included.

Blast Zone could be another consideration for you as it is removal with a good amount of flexibility.

It's an ambitious deck in my opinion, creatureless ones always are, good luck and have fun with it.

mikeb388 Yeah, I think you're right. Doom Foretold ruins this deck. I am getting a little smarter playing against it and holding my permanents until I have the extra mana to cast Assassin's Trophy or Mythos of Nethroi. I was seeing a lot that card in Diamond 1 tier before the season change. A lot of times it was an Esper deck that ran Dance of the Manse as well.

I am very not savvy when it comes to deck arch-types and the meta in general, but there is a deck that I am frequently running into which I just cannot seem to beat. Maybe Esper control?

It runs Doom Foretold <<< I hate that damn card. Oath of Kaya Dance of the Manse some Omens and some planeswalkers, probably Kaya's Wrath.

I just can't get past this damn thing...

This is an interesting concept, but I think the meta just isn't in the right place for this. Any mono-red aggro goes under you, Temur Clover/Jeskai Fires goes over you, Azorius Control hardly exists anymore, but it waits you out as well, Rakdos Sacrifice you have no meaningful interaction with...

Just the lack of non-creature interaction in this deck means it won't be able to interact with the artifacts and enchantments that are so pervasive in this meta. You've got Planar Cleansing, but with nothing to follow that up with, you're still going to lose because your opponent can just rebuild.

Most of these cards are decent cards, they just don't fit together. You need a lot of sac-chaff for Doom Foretold and Plaguecrafter to work well, you need to make your opponent draw cards for Underworld Dreams to do good work (you also need more black mana, from the simple fact it costs , and Covetous Urge basically costs ),

ShanghaiKid07 Everything you said is very on point. I had Doom Foretold out on the field yesterday and it was useless lol. So Ill be swapping for Glory of Warfare for sure. Yesterday's game was a big day for learning what I need in this deck. I need a few board wipes and I cant believe I didnt have a top in here.
