    A synergistic control deck which utilizes Trial of Ambition, and Trial of Zeal along side Cartouches to control your opponent's board and then gets card advantage with Trial of Knowledge. Trial of Strength is a creature you can always put cartouches on to trigger the trials. Cut // Ribbons is in the deck for some more early removal, as well as a finisher for the late game. Servant of the Conduit and Channeler Initiate are both used to fix and ramp our mana, as well as provide another good place to put our cartouches, and the Cartouche of Ambition can be used on Channeler Initiate to get more mana out of it if needed. I think Kefnet the Mindful is probably the best god for this deck (though Rhonas seems just as viable if you have him). He can take cartouches, and can prove difficult to remove, and he's easy to activate in the deck, with all the trials returning to your hand (play trials, return them, then swing). Sideboard is pretty self explanitory (but not static, since there is 4 colours, there is a plethora of options for countering your local meta). The whole deck comes in at just over $60 (but could be made cheaper replacing Sweltering Suns with Radiant Flames and/or changing Kefnet for a different finisher).

    The land base is the easiest thing to upgrade. Replace all the lands with fast lands and cycling lands. Rhonas the Indomitable would be great inclusion as well, since if you have a creature with some cartouches on it, you will almost always have a 4 power creature on the board.

    I am open to suggestions and comments, to please leave some feedback!!


    Sideboard price: 9.30 € | $ 5.21
