I would recommend to take a look at Castle Locthwain . You'd better try 3 or 4 copies of Fabled Passage instead of Mortuary Mire . Midnight Reaper seems to be a nice addition too.

Change the format to "Pauper"?? I'd imagine looking at other mono-black Pauper decks would provide some good ideas. It's not really a format I'm very familiar with, but something I think about here and there.

I think I'd go with Defile over Murder. Duress strikes me as another possibly valuable option. I think it might be good to run a few less enchantments and a few more creatures. Given you've got enough creatures, Unearth might be worth considering. Mortuary Mire , too.

epartica So modern as a format is in the perfect middle ground in terms of power level. The decks are not terribly broken (except for the fun Hogaak) and the control is not powerful enough to stop the most aggro decks. As you get to Legacy, however, you will see that aggro decks that are not combo decks/storm no longer exist. With the addition of Force of Will and Daze and cards like that, it's hard to have a deck that focuses on too much aggro w/o being combo. Thus, a tempo deck, which takes its place, is a deck that is more aggressive than not but also has a lot of control. Thus, while it can be a faster deck, it also uses control to lockdown the opponent. A good example is a Death and Taxes deck.

I'll do a little bit of thinking and get back to you on the other suggestions. I have a few right now.

At some point, if you're more committed to the deck, I really would recommend getting a couple Liliana, the Last Hope for the deck. But a good alternative would be Liliana, Death's Majesty it's about $6-7 (compared to the $40 for the Last Hope). Especially the {-7} will help with control, and the ability to recur creatures from your graveyard.

I also suggest adding a couple of more early game instants and sorceries that help control your opponent. Inquisition of Kozilek / Duress / Divest are good hand control cards. Fatal Push , Go for the Throat , and Liliana's Triumph would be good for creature control. All of the sacrificing your own creatures will trigger the revolt on Fatal Push a lot, so I really recommend it. All of them are pretty inexpensive. Profane Command can also be quite helpful. If you need GY hate, maybe Deadeye Tracker or Nihil Spellbomb .

I'd also suggest getting a couple better sacrifice outlets. The best I can currently think of is Carrion Feeder and Altar's Reap , but I'll get back to you w/ more. In addition, I would use Unearth rather than Blood for Bones . I would also definitely add Mortician Beetle .

For lands, I would suggest Blast Zone , Scavenger Grounds , Mortuary Mire , Ifnir Deadlands and Memorial to Folly are some that I can think of immediately, but I'll dig around for some more.

It won't work that way unfortunately.

Targets are selected as part of putting spells/abilities on the stack (Comprehensive Rules, 115.1). At the time Mortuary Mire 's trigger is put on the stack, Magus of the Wheel will not be in the graveyard, and hence will not be a valid target for the trigger.

Unfortunately, targets are chosen when the triggered ability is put on the stack not when it starts to resolve.

In your case, when Mortuary Mire enters the battlefield, its triggered ability goes on the stack. At that time, you need to choose a target. Since Magus of the Wheel is not in the graveyard, it is not a legal target for Mortuary Mire 's ETB trigger.

I am creating a discard deck with Magus of the Wheel . I want to use a land card like Mortuary Mire to recover and re-cast my magus. Unfortunately, If I have my land in-hand and then I sacrifice Magus of the Wheel , I lose my land when I discard.

I got to thinking ... if I play the land first and respond to it's enter the battlefield triggered ability by sacrificing Magus of the Wheel , the sacrifice would happen first and then I could target it from my graveyard to return to the top of my library ...

Are my assumptions correct?

So I want to start by saying everything in my previous comment still stands, so I won't go over anything I already discussed there. That said, let's take a look at what you've changed.
