BeJoSe's Deck Garage
Welcome to BeJoSe's Deck Garage. I am here to provide
advice for deck building. I'm best at casual decks in the T2
format, however I do work of competitive T2 decks and casual
decks of any format. I hope that you can get some ideas and
learn from my fixes and articles.
please help me i know it's bad
Quite the list.
Okay first thing we need to do right away is cut down the deck to 60 cards, focus your theme and improve your mana base.
So here’s how I’m going to do this one, you have a lot of cards that don’t help your theme at all, so im going to suggest a direction for this deck and then some possible cards, the numbers will be up to you to refine as you see best.
You say that you want the mina focus to be the revival and death of Kokusho so we’ll work from that.
This will be the centerpiece of your deck, I recommend 4-ofs of each to maximize your chances of drawing them
Kokusho is a must; he’s the centerpiece of the deck
Pyrrhic Revival is a golden addition for this deck from the Eventide set, bring back 2 or more Kokusho at once and they’ll all kill each other. Other options include Living End or Patriarch's Bidding.
Buried alive is the next piece of the combo, put 3 Kokusho into the grave and revive them for an instant 30 point life swing.
What good is the combo if your not alive long enough to use it?
Kitchen Finks/Aven Riftwatcher, both gain your 4 life and chump block to keep you alive I prefer the Finks as it has the ability to lock twice
Gwyllion Hedge-Mage, creates more blockers and has the ability to weaken opposing creatures.
Pillory of the sleepless is nice option, both shutting down a creature and draining your opponent of those vital 5 points
Shriekmaw is an efficient kill spell, and can help to deal the final 3 points of damage if you only mange to bury 3 Kokusho
Faith’s Fetters is an extremely potent card from RAV that will neutralize a threat and gain you life in the process.
Recumbent Bliss, similar to fetters, but can gain you more life in the long run
Unmake/Condemn, both viable creature removal options, unmake is probably superior here
Wrath Of God/Damnation are incredibly important for both killing off early creature rushes or clearing the field after a revival spell, at least at total combination of 4 (ie 2 of each)
These will indirectly help you set up the combo
Diabolic tutor is superior to Beseech the Queen here, because you’re going to want to assemble your pieces often before you have the necessary land count, although you can run both
Orzhov signet, you’re going to be playing a lot of expensive spells and can really use the mana boost (defiantly recommend 4of)
Castigate is a good option to make sure your opponent can’t disrupt your combo
Liliana Vess is an option although she may take some time to power up and is very vulnerable
Ajani goldmane, nice stalling option but doesn’t really contribute to the combo
You can put in some singleton dragons so you have the option of keeping them all around when you resurrect them, plus you can selectively search dump them into the grave with Buried Alive.
Land Base (at least 24, 23 with signet)
Need to cast those spells somehow right? You’ll want to keep the land base relatively simple just to ensure you have the correct colors of mana when you need them. If you have the money I naturally recommend more duals, however try to avoid lands that come into play tapped (basilica excluded) as they can severely hamper your tempo and you want to be firing off the combo ASAP)
Orzhov Basilica is an excellent option, basically giving you a total of 6 mana when you only have 5 lands.
Godless Shrine, excellent color fixer though it may be a little expensive to obtain ($$ wise)
Basic Land, obviously, these also help
with the mage
Hope I’ve helped, always remember that it you get those 3 Kokusho out and sacrificed you haven’t won yet, you still need to take out the last 5 points.
