Hello there fellow Magic players! Love the game, spend WAY too much money on it that should go to other things, and maybe one day I'll actually own all the cards and decks that I want. Probably not.

Am always open to advice and suggestions for any/ all of my decks. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and possibly looking at my decks. Have a great day!

Oddyst - I like it as a way to play standard without investing a lot of money. Allows me to play different cards since my playgroup and I don't switch decks often in the formats we play. If you ever join let me know. I'm not the biggest Brawl fan. How do you like it?

I'm not! At some point I should so I can play Brawl since that would be the only thing I play.

Hello there Saccox! While it's not a bad card, the problem with him is because the effect doesn't last. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame sacrifices her permanents at the end step, Witch's Oven I don't tend to use until my opponent's end step with Cauldron Familiar , and with God-Eternal Bontu Slaughter-Priest of Mogis could be worthless if my opponent has any kind of chump blocker. I don't sacrifice enough at one time to make him super powerful. Thanks for the comment!

zapyourtumor - He didn't play it, but no reason you can't. This list is as close that I have found to my friend's list.

My friend did not play Beastcaller Savant , Chromanticore , nor Witchstalker , but everything else is fairly close. I've seen lists that play Nightveil Specter and Chromanticore and I feel like that's a pretty cool idea. Playtest everything and see what you like. If you put it up here on tappedout tag me in it and I'll take a look. Oh, my friend did play Questing Beast and Carnage Tyrant as a beat face plan B.

zapyourtumor don't even get me started on that bullshit. I can go all day about Simian Spirit Guide when they banned the reason it become busted, Tibalt's Trickery . #FREETHEMONKEY!

My friend's list usually had one or two because he played dorks like Sylvan Caryatid for the hexproof for Soulflayer or just to try and get it out faster. However, I do like the thought of Angrath's Rampage . It's in a binder as a potential for the deck (and because I found it in Japanese).

I'll try to send the list when I can communicate with my friend but his list was something like this:

4x Soulflayer 4x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn 4x Banehound 4x Sylvan Caryatid 4x Lotleth Troll

3x Grapple with the Past 4x Grisly Salvage

Plus whatever lands and potential removal. I've seen lists online playing stuff like Chromanticore but he didn't play any red cards.

zapyourtumor my friend was playing Soulflayer and he would delve Zetalpa and I simply lost whenever that happened. Grasp of Darkness is a thought, but normally he would have hexproof on it as well. Again, it is there for now but obviously I need to adjust according to whatever the meta may come to.

Murderous Rider was there as a catch all for later games since Fatal Push can't hit anything past 5, but it would be taken out. There may be an adjustment with how many Light Up the Stage s I play, with Murderous Rider and whatnot. Something to think about. Thanks for the thought!

Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is another one that I'm going to play when I can find a foil Japanese Extended art, or have the money to afford it. Another way to help with grindy games.

Honestly, Dreadhorde Butcher is a potential as well. But his ability to just take over games cannot be denied. Plus, he's probably one of my favorite cards in Pioneer. It is RARE that I don't like to see him. He can be a serious clock. However, he isn't as synergetic as some of the other cards.

Thanks for the upvote and comment zapyourtumor!

Village Rites is one that I'm trying to find a place for because I LOVE the combo of taking a creature with Claim the Firstborn to then just sac it with Village Rites . The reason I haven't included it so far was that I was trying to keep the deck as concise and efficient as possible. Top decking a Village Rites can definitely be a feel bad. I'm playing Light Up the Stage instead so that even top decking it late game doesn't make it worthless.

Kolaghan's Command was in the original list as a one of. It could be a good sideboard card, but the three CMC competed with other cards like Chandra, Acolyte of Flame , Light Up the Stage , and Mayhem Devil .

Thoughtseize I don't believe is needed here since a lot of the combo decks got the ban hammer. It was in the original list though.

I agree with your logic on Extinction Event , but indestructible creatures destroy this deck and there is no way for me to come back. I feel like it is a necessary evil in the sideboard. At least until events come back and we can get a good feel for what the meta will be.

For the cards you suggested, what would you recommend I take out? What would you want to change?

I like the deck man. I am interested in playing something similar in pioneer. Not sure if I want to go Grixis for Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger because Ashiok is one of my favorite planeswalkers, or just Rakdos because it is my favorite guild.

Anyway, if this is something your interested in perfecting, I'd recommend Eliminate over Cast Down to allow for utility to hit planeswalkers as well. Because of your theme, you don't necessarily need to worry about big creatures attacking in since you can make them discard it anyway. Murderous Rider is another staple that you could use instead as a potential backup plan to beat face.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Ashiok, Nightmare Muse , but Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver can also be a powerful win condition for less mana. Granted, if they are not a creature deck it can hurt, but you still are exiling their deck AND hand with it. I would say it is worth playtesting.

Since you're blue I'd recommend some draw spells. I really like Chemister's Insight for this type of deck since you can discard a discard spell to its jumpstart if their hand is low, while refilling yours for more utility. There are plenty more to consider since it would be likely that you'd run out of a hand around the same time as your opponent without some sort of draw.
