“And he, like many jaded people, had few pleasures left in life save good food and drink."

-Honoré de Balzac **

Have to say I'm loving all the flavor possibilities with this guy. He can cook a mean braised-goat shawarma! Feel free to provide feedback. This is the first iteration of many. I built this off of cards I had laying around (I realize I am missing some ideal Food cards). A few jank choices are for flavor ( Feast of the Unicorn & Hungry Mist ) and others are for experimentation ( Bolas's Citadel , Belbe, Corrupted Observer , Hall of Gemstone , and Koskun Falls ). Now to see what the all-time troll chef can really do!

I did find one gem in Puffer Extract that may be the sweet piece to the deck. Off of Gyome, I can pump him or another creature with Puffer and then sac a Food to make the creature indestructible. I'm hoping it plays as smooth as I imagine it to be.


“Oh, pity the poor glutton

Whose troubles all begin

In struggling on and on to turn

What's out into what's in”

—Walter de la Mare **

I may be attempting too much here, but the handful of black creatures that make each player lose life ( Falkenrath Noble , Zulaport Cutthroat , Crypt Rats , and Marauding Blight-Priest ) are to additionally help trigger Belbe's ability to rack up mana when she's out. I included some tutors to help speed this process along, as her ability will help put more creatures on the board for Gyome's abilities to trigger. It's probably one step too many, but this is what I came up with based on what cards I owned.
