Works on getting Iona, Sheild of Emeria or Blazing Archon (possibly even both) on turn 1. With Dark Rituals, Entomb s and an Exhume or Reanimate, sometimes even an Animate Dead, that is easy, making for turn one indestructibility from cards like Goblin Guide, and other haste cards, or stopping your opponents draw and counter spells (Control being the kryptonite of this deck). It then works on turn two stuff like Avacyn, Angel of Hope taking out a turn 2 Doom Blade, Go for the Throat or even Terminate.

Thanks to crimsonking69, I was inspired to finish my sideboard! Thoughtseize : A lightweight discard spell with allows me to force my opponents to discard graveyard hate and counterspells on turn 1, making way for giant Ionas, and Griselbrands. Inquisition of Kozilek : The same thing. A little less powerful, but just as useful against mana leaks and counterspells. Unmake : Fun removal in black. 'Nuff said. Gaea's Revenge Every had to deal with a t1-t3 combo win deck? Well, Gaea's Revenge is the guy for you. Comes out fast, trampling you opponents with haste. What they don't block hits them harder in the long run, which makes them want to block, which removes their combos. Useful.
