Here he goes again, talkin’ more about that Magic game. Well, it’s just so damn fun! It’s also what I do these days. So, naturally, I’m going to go over my latest deck.
2 x Pyramid of the Pantheon
Sure it takes a few turns to really get going, but this little mana maker is just awesome. After three turns doing the brick counter thing, it turns into a reusable Black Lotus, enabling some ungodly plays far earlier than they should be possible.
2 x Anointed Procession
As you’ll see, this deck makes a lot of token creatures. Anointed Procession allows it to make a lot more.
3 x Start/Finish
Start makes two little token creatures. Unless Anointed Procession is in play. Then it makes four. If there are two Anointed Processions, well that’s eight. That’s a lot of little buggers pretty fast. The flipside of Start is Finish, a groovy little removal spell.
3 x Fleshbag Marauder
This guy owns. As soon as he hits the battlefield, opponent’s creature goes buh bye. He’s usually more of a removal spell then a creature, often being sacrificed to his own ability… in this deck though, token creatures usually do that instead.
3 x Stir the Sands
Zombie tokens are really what this deck is about. This baby makes three… six… twelve? of them.
2 x Anguished Unmaking
Pay a little life and that annoying enchantment goes away forever. Or that great big creature. As long as it’s not a land, this can take care of it for three little mana an d three life.
1 x Sorin, Grim Nemesis
I am a member of the Sorin Markov fan club. Well, I’m not but I would be, I’ve got a huge man crush on Sorin because Sorin is just plain awesome and I want to have his babies.
1 x Liliana, Death’s Majesty
What? A second planeswalker? I’ve actually had a change of heart concerning planeswalkler centric decks since I last wrote about them. If you can’t beat them, join them I guess. Besides, look at what she does. Shecan pop out a zombie (or two… or four) every turn. or she can pull a critter out of the graveyard and if she really needs to she can kill everything except the zombies. Huzzah!
2 x Languish
It’s a panic button of sorts. Sure, it kills my creatures too, but I can just make more. -4/-4 for everyone else.
2 x Liliana’s Mastery
The picture is a little blurry, so let me explain. This enchantment creates two 2/2 zombie tokens. It also gives all my zombies +1/+1. Combine that with Liliana who has been pumping out zombies for the last eight turns and we’ve got an army of the undead on our hands.
So there ya go, that’s my latest deck and it still doesn’t run ten plus planeswalkers.
