2.14 Non-Creature and 3.52 Creature CMC avgs. 2.81 overall (discounting Phyrexian Metamorph, Seize the Spotlight, Fierce Guardianship, and Blasphemous Act) - Updated 2/18/23

Ok, first things first... save your Chaos Warp /Feed the Swarm entirely for problematic enchantments, those things will wreck your day (I'm looking at you Solemnity and Rest in Peace).

The deck is a synergistic nightmare for your opponents. It is set up as both an aggro deck and to abuse ETB/Death triggers and is VERY aggressive with life as a resource. Several lands, creatures, artifacts, and enchantments cause you to lose life (31 cards) and you can always smack yourself with Flayer of the Hatebound, Goblin Bombardment, and Terror of the Peaks (It's the right answer sometimes). Spellskite can also redirect the same spell or ability on the stack as many times as needed to lower your life also.

Metallic Mimic, Sage of Fables, Vigean Graftmage, Unspeakable Symbol, Spark Double, Uncivil Unrest, Thran Vigil, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed all (except Thran Vigil) allow you to abuse etb/death triggers on everyone's turn instead of once per round.

Note that almost the entirety of my maybeboard is for a discard subtheme I'm considering with Marchesa.

I've never once comboed to win even though there are 2 (main) lethal infinites in the deck. I instead rely on tons of synergy and attacking my opponents resources for more of a war of attrition approach.


Ashnod's Altar + Flayer of the Hatebound + Sage of Fables for infinite damage and card draw.

1: Sac Flayer to Altar for , Flayer immediately comes back with a +1+1 counter and hits anything for 5.

2: Use the floating with Sage to remove Flayer's +1+1 counter and draw a card.

3: Rinse and repeat until all opponents are certifiably dead!

Plugging Mikaeus, the Unhallowed into this combo allows you to replace Flayer of the Hatebound with any non-human that ISN'T a wizard.


Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Glen Elendra Archmage + Goblin Bombardment for infinite damage.

Just keep sacing a persist creature and alternating the creature coming back from persist/undying until the win is yours!

NOTE This can also accrue infinite mana if the sac outlet is Ashnod's/Phyrexian Altar or infinite mill with Altar of Dementia.
