Necrotic Ooze. Walking Ballista. Infinity. Need I say more?

This is a midrange/combo hybrid deck that is based upon various combos and synergies with Necrotic Ooze. The plan is to stay alive in the early game using disruptive elements to interact with and disrupt my opponent's plans while pressuring the opponent and filling the graveyard with combo pieces. The main win condition is comboing off with Necrotic Ooze (more on that below) or death by general aggro. In game two, the hybrid nature of this deck allows it to capitalize on its opponent's weakness. If our opponent is prepared or has heavily sideboarded for the combo element of this deck, it can shift into an almost pure midrange Rock deck post board. It is this ability to adapt to our opponent's weakness and shift from combo to midrange that gives this deck the edge.

Feedback greatly appreciated on the following:

  • I'm currently testing Channeler Initiate as replacement for Morselhoarder . While both allow the ooze to create arbitrarily large amounts of mana, there are some key differences. Morselhoarder often just sits in the hand waiting to be discarded while channeler initiate can be cast early as a beater or mana source. Necrotic ooze can make the mana while it is summoning sick if Morselhoarder is used, while channeler initiate requires tapping.

  • Testing Emrakul, the Promised End as an anti control finisher.

  • How does the SB look assuming an unknown meta?

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Let me know what you think of the deck as well as any questions or suggestions you have.
