    Essentially, the goal is to stop the opponent enabling their nefarious schemes without counter and burn spells until the deck is able to reach a point where it can cast Rise From The Tides and swarm with zombies, or stomp with Gearhulk. Sweltering Suns and Hour of Devastation keep the board clear from opponents who want to go wide, while Harnessed Lightning deals with singular big creatures. Nicol Bolas just does everything I want, being able to kill off creatures, reduce the opponent's hand size or allow me to cast free spells if undealt with.

    While Kefnet can be used as a wincon, swinging for 5 per turn, he's primarily there as a mana sink at the end of an opponent's turn to invest unspent mana into for card draw.
