Fatespinner Discussion

Fatespinner might be worth a try. In most situations your opponents just choose to skip combat. The downside is they possibly stop attacking each other but it is a major tempo swing to lose either your draw, main phases or combat step.

Torpor Orb: They still get there creature just without its extra effect. I think this falls more in line with your 'don't shut them out of the game' reasoning where you wouldn't want to play Cursed Totem.

Ankh of Mishra: Similar to polluted bonds. If most games you tend to have extra life or you tend to hit your life-gain pieces often then I would consider running this.

Meekstone: Let's the big stompy guys swing once but normally your opponent just won't tap them. Plus, your deck looks like it doesn't really care about dealing combat damage.

Bloodchief Ascension: A good card to simply bleed your opponents and gain life. You could run the combo Mindcrank but I don't think you want to mill your opponents. So, I'd leave the combo out unless you just want a combo win.

Koskun Falls: Great card. It's a black version of Propaganda. You have plenty of small creatures that you don't care if you tap down. Stack the pillows, comfy, comfy pillows.

Tainted Remedy: Sometimes this is a dead card but when it isn't it is glorious. Turns creatures with lifelink into, "When this creature deals damage it deals that much damage to you."

I've made a few changed to the deck in an effort to lower the mana curve and also include some more hatebear elements to try and slow down the game to give me more time to catch up.

Flickerwisp swapped for Aven Mindcensor

Whirler Rogue swapped for Fatespinner

Harmonious Archon swapped for Thalia, Heretic Cathar

king-saproling thank you for the suggestions, there are definitely some cards there I will be adding. Fatespinner and Storage Matrix are so cool!

I don't like Fatespinner because the opponent is who choses what he or she skips, and that can be unpredictable.

Opposition and Glare of Subdual are very good options. For now, I think that i will add Opposition (When I find what to cut), and keep Glare of Subdual in the maybeboard.

re: Smokestack -- remember you can easily set the counter at one without having to sacrifice anything by letting it sit in play for one turn and stacking the triggers how u like, then begin skipping your turns. Its a great pressure point and becomes a threat if someone manages to disrupt you, because you can then let the counters tick up as you set back up. Though, running into it mid game would be a drag, and it becomes a risk to play. So yeah I feel you.

Might consider adding some Opposition , Glare of Subdual type options
