Fuzzy003, turns out Leechridden Swamp is Modern legal, and an amazing addition to this deck! Thanks!

Thanks, Profet93!

Yeah, its biggest strength is definitely card advantage. I like to build my decks without most fast mana, sadly this deck has a sol ring, but oh well. With that said, an early engine piece in this deck that lets it start generating value early turn 2 or 3 is great.

The combos mostly revolve around reducing life totals. Sometimes rare, but against life gain decks it shines because it can make players life total a number, instead of merely doing damage or draining life. Hitting a Necropotence into a Repay in Kind and having a Leechridden Swamp out is awesome, which ironically was the first win it got at my local pub game, and a win con I hadn't even thought about until I saw it in my hand.

The deck was built to sit around and create value, while draining life, until I can go for a Triskaidekaphobia + Tree of Perdition. But Tree also works with Sorin the Mirthless but rare that could happen, but it totally could, especially if Sorin gets out there turn 2.

The creatures have some swinging power, clearly especially, Phyrexian Obliterator.

I hear everyone's critique on Sever the Bloodline. I want to point out, it is only 4 mana, and I can play it twice, it has great utility because of the token removal, people do not expect it at all, and exiles in stead of destroys, which I love. I don't mind the sorcery speed. This deck can generate so much card advantage that if I have to pitch it, it's still available from the yard, and it can sit in my hand until I need it because my hand size is usually 7+.

However, Spine of Ish Sah is excellent in my deck because of Keskit, the Flesh Sculptor's ability. It's "creature or artifact" so I can just keep recurring the Spine, and drawing.

Cheers, M

Chaddish it hasn't been optimised as my partner hasn't figured out what she likes/dislikes about it yet, and as it's her first EDH deck it's not going to be super competitive yet. As well as that, it's more of a social deck too.

That being said, there are a couple of wincons. The less obivous and more difficult is draining your opponents out,Cauldron Familiar doesn't target so you can start the incremental damage there. If you're smart with the curses, Trespasser's Curse, Curse of Fool's Wisdom and a flipped Accursed Witch  Flip can start to add up. Torment of Scarabs and Cruel Reality can help here too but are reliant on them not wanting to lose resources, but that can still be helpful. Leechridden Swamp can add to this total too.

The clearest would be creature beatdown, 3/3 Demons from Tasha, the Witch Queen. It relies on opponents dealing damage to other opponents usually, but our playgroup is quite creature centric anyway. The curses can help here too; Curse of the Restless Dead, and Curse of Disturbance give you (and opponents) extra Zombies to push through some damage.

The most fun but least consistent way of winning is the wincons not in your deck - taking them via Tasha or other stealing means. A particular favourite of mine was Coffin Queen resurrecting a Gray Merchant of Asphodel for a double kill.

That being said, this deck is still in the early stages and will change over time - mostly as my partner figures out the way she wants to play the deck. At the moment it's a casual flavourful start, but I'll keep updating it as it gets more competitive too.

Sorry for not saying anything for a long while, Dead_Blue_ and Squee_Spirit_Guide. Life has been a bit complicated. I'll answer both of you in order.

Squee_Spirit_Guide, trying to build things in colors different from the usual has been something I consider when planning a new deck. I remember seeing in someone's profile a Jeskai Zombies deck and I still have that ideia on my mind.

About your suggestions, Soul Reap is interesting, maybe I can find a spot for it in the sideboard. Leechridden Swamp and Syphon Life seem a bit too slow for the deck, especially the Syphon Life as it's for just 2 damage.

Dead_Blue_, thanks for the suggestions, but none of them seem useful for the deck. If look at other comments here, you'll see Fruit of Tizerus is a debatable inclusion, so I feel Vicious Rumors isn't worth. The other two however... Aren't very budget, and the idea of this list is exactly to be a budget fun deck.

Guessing Leechridden Swamp is not legal in modern? Same as Thrashing Wumpus... :(

I think learning things the janky way is the best way to learn :) And I love decks that do things their colours aren't inherently meant to! What do you think about Syphon Life and maybe Leechridden Swamp? Also, Soul Reap might be decent in the sideboard.
