Paper Pauper Grixis Aikido Control
+ Act of Treason + Innocent Blood - friends = Lose Calm

Steven Seagal uses Aikido btw, if you don't get the reference. =)

WARNING! This deck SUCKS and needs LOTS of help! LOL Please suggest stuff!

Steal your opponent's creatures and then do something shitty with them.

  • Start by Duressing your opponent's counterspells or protection away to protect your combos later.
  • Play Bloodfell Caves, Swiftwater Cliffs or Evolving Wilds early and get your manabase straight, first of all. This deck is not aggro. Settle in.
  • Start by Wrangle-ing your opponent's smaller creatures and swinging wildly with them. A lot of the time they'll avoid blocking just to save their creature (it's gonna die no matter what, but they don't need to know that yet).
  • Use Mark of Mutiny if your opponent has a big creature you need/want to steal.
  • Hijack will also work on any creature, but it can also steal non-creature artifacts.
  • After you swing with a stolen creature, sac it with Reckless Abandon for damage or Altar's Reap for cards.
  • Sac stolen artifacts (or more creatures) with Costly Plunder. Never return anything in the condition you got it, like a horrible neighbor.
  • Control the board more with Singing Bell Strike. All of your Aikido card will untap for free when you steal it, and if you don't sac it, swinging with it taps it before you return it.
  • Scry and draw with Opt.
  • Counter spells and draw a card with Disrupt.
