Welcome to Curious burn! A deck that is everything sans black, trying to grind out value and assemble a number of game winning 2 card combos.

So lets tackle the biggest question in the room.

Why Bruse Tarl?

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder comes down and gives creatures lifelink, which lends itself to our 5 creatures that have triggered damage abilities. This allows us to have a greedier game plan with our life, as bruse tarl pads our life total with our "Hatebears".

This deck runs a large package of reactive abilities that depend on the opponents plays, which in turn helps us limit our opponents plays. Runic Armasaur and Verity Circle let us capitalize on opponent's dorks, like Bloom Tender , while Immolation Shaman and harsh mentor help keep dramatic sceptre and fetches in check, while Scab-Clan Berserker keeps noncreature spells minimized.

So how do we win?

Curiosity + Glint-Horn Buccaneer

lets us kill opponents at the end step of our turn, abusing the idea of the clean up step endlessly looping discarding down to 7. By running 5 functional copies of curiosity in our deck:

Keen Sense


Snake Umbra

Ophidian Eye

Tandem Lookout

This is easier to assemble than it seems. Because we're running 5, we actively want to enchant our triggered damage creatures, gaining leverage over the opponent no matter what they do.

Isochron Scepter + Thrasios, Triton Hero lets us infinitely dig through our deck for said combo pieces, and can provide a board state that will end up draining the opponents life. This lets us assemble our back up plan: Blind Obedience + Isochron Scepter . We get to infinitely extort our opponent this way.
