I've been working on this deck for 9 months straight now. It's a standard deck, but it's not legal for SOI standard. I'll make a version for that later. This is a B/G Aristocrats deck with a focus on large armies and death triggers.
It started with the "Ultimate Sacrifice" event deck that I bought and tried out with my friends. I won the matches I had. Hard. I took the deck around and won. HARD. I fell in love with Golgari?! I was an Azorius player beforehand. My experiences with this damn deck turned me into a Simic player.
This deck has too much tech and tricks to just ramble off. It's always been difficult to pilot, but in a good way. It's an INCREDIBLY powerful deck, you just have to learn the finesses of it. It's had so many forms, from its agile FNM version to its hilarious Twin-Headed Giant variant. Commander form? Check. Modern Snackrifice? Yup. This decklist is more of a personal log for myself, but I'm willing to share it.
This is the single most fun deck I've ever played. (It's also hella' cheap, if not for Liliana. $20 deck? Yes, plz.) This deck will also never be complete, even if I list that it's in working order. I'll tweat it 'till the end of time.
This is the epitome of a Catch-22 deck. I swing and you block, my creature dies, I get a new one, scry, draw cards, and drain more health from you than I would have dealt. You don't block? You take the damage, sweet! OR, I buff my creature MASSIVELY with Might of the Masses
! You swing at me, and I'll end up gaining life from the transaction due to draining life from you when I chump block with my stupid little Sultai Emissarys!
Swing with enough creatures that they can't block all of them and have one green mana open for Might of the Masses
= you win. With four in the deck, it's an always-present terror
for ANYONE who knows the deck. People will bluff themselves silly trying to work around Might of the Masses
, and because of that, I can't cut back on the number of them.
Someone kills a Zulaport Cutthroat
? Well, I drain your health before recurring him with Dutiful Return
and playing 2 more. What was that? You wipe the field? How many creatures do I have? Oh, I drain 28 from you? GG. Oh, for that reason, you also can't just attack all out at me? Oh, that's a shame...
P.S. THIS DECK DESPISES KALITAS, TRAITOR OF GHET
AND ANAFENZA, THE FOREMOST
. KILL THEM ON SIGHT WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE. Besides those specific cards and burn decks, this deck is UNSTOPPABLE if played correctly. Too much health and power and chumps for anyone but excessive fire
to deal with.
