A friend of mine build him around draining is own life for value and then swapping life using Magus of the Mirror and such spells with other players - super funny and cool deck! x)

Very nice! I love this kind of strategy. Magus of the Mirror seems like it would fit the flavour of the deck. With Phyrexian Unlife it's ability is an insta-kill for players. Angel's Grace might be nice too to let you life swap and kill someone immediately.

For taking care of indestructible 'players can't gain life' cards, exile effects like Oblivion Ring or Path to Exile would be good.

This was very interesting to comb through. My gut instinct said ‘Pick Magus of the Mirror’ too. In the preliminary draft in my mind I missed some great choices you didn’t (like Spoils of the Vault), but on the other hand I’m surprised Wall of Blood didn’t make the list.

Alright, here we go! An honest, straightforward, totally fair deck built around Magus of the Mirror :)

I'm not dead, you're dead!

I linked to your deck in my FAQ, but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet. I did see Dark Depths though, so I'm excited to dive into it!

Andramalech, agreed. I like the Mangus/Martyr buildaround. Let's go with Vintage for the card pool. My mind is already working on an idea for Magus of the Mirror :)

All right Squee_Spirit_Guide. It's time for the build-around challenge! When I crafted the list for Balaam__ I hand selected things I believed would interest them.

And without further ado, I introduce the "Martyr or Magus" challenge? Will you pick...



So do these creatures intrigue you? We have plenty of options for building possibilities, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on other ideas if this falls short.

Could always throw a Magus of the Mirror in there for those close calls

Mesa Enchantress is a great add to keep your hand moving, given how many enchantments you'll be casting.

Starfield Mystic can speed your enchantments up, and make a potential alternative threat if your main win-con is prevented.

Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife is a great way to lock opponents down and make it so you can't die, which buys you plenty of time to get your combo going. Also, when combined with Magus of the Mirror , Soul Conduit , or Axis of Mortality , this becomes a win condition in its self.

Great deck!
