Geth, Lord of the Vault

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Zombie

Intimidate (This creature can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a colour with it.)

: Put target artifact or creature card with converted mana cost X from an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control tapped. Then that player mills X cards.

Here's my thoughts, based on (casual) experience with a similar deck:

As wallisface and zapyourtumor mention, you need more low-cost spells. Your 1-2 mana slots should be the typical control options, which they listed some good options for.

If you want to keep the mill cards, it's possible to mill for profit. This lets you pull the best cards from your opponent's graveyard with cards like Geth, Lord of the Vault and Beacon of Unrest. This won't be as fast or reliable as a dedicated competitive mill deck, but there's a different focus here. Thief of Sanity fits in this deck as well.

The best direct theft cards tend to be 4+ mana: Domestication takes a smaller creature, Mind Control is 5 mana, Praetor's Grasp isn't exactly budget.

As a final thought, consider diversifying your mana base. You don't want to be stuck unable to activate a cool effect because you can't pay .

In my experience, theft decks are far too slow and unreliable for anything remotely competitive, but they do create some good stories at the casual tables. Above all, good luck, and have fun!

asparling_tappedout Yes! I have Havengul Lich on my buy list as it is one I don't currently own. I will probably swap him with Geth, Lord of the Vault once I get my hands on it. Thanks for the suggestion!

Is it a problem if one of my old decks had so much recursion, people accused me of using multiples of cards?

Eternal Witness is a basic inclusion anywhere I can put it, but I haven't used Timeless Witness yet. Geth, Lord of the Vault isn't quite as ubiquitous, but I have a lot of fun there. I want to build something around Sedris, the Traitor King and Geth some day.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

dritchie on No time to rest – Drana, Reanimator (Primer)

I see a lot of things that dont synergise very well or cost far too much mana, i would remove Meteor Golem for Artisan of Kozilek i know its slightly more mana but has more versatility and more power. Nirkana Revenant id say is a must because she gives you more mana and can one hit someone, Reanimate , Rise of the Dark Realms , Sepulchral Primordial , Puppeteer Clique , Geth, Lord of the Vault , Chainer, Dementia Master

Malakir Rebirth  Flip has no real value in this deck id remove this for Sudden Spoiling or Tragic Slip or Entomb . you need some lower mana tutors at the like Diabolic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Exsanguinate would be good to help balance the life. board wipes like Necromantic Selection , Decree of Pain and Black Sun's Zenith . Nim Deathmantle . things like Grave Pact woundn't be a bad idea to add. Mortuary Mire and Crypt of Agadeem

sorry i feel like ive just ripped apart the deck

WorldEater_42 on What do you have that I cannot obtain?

Thanks sSasquatch! Another practical advantage of theft as a gameplay strategy is that it scales quite a bit with the strength of your opponents' decks. Geth, Lord of the Vault and Olivia Voldaren are two more potential enablers for this strategy.

Hullbreacher is a windmill slam, I ordered one last week and will be slotting it in for sure. Hullbreacher is very powerful on its own but has additional synergy with Dack Fayden and Windfall, I may also test the new Wheel of Misfortune alongside it.
