Too bad nobody cares about block.

The strategy is mana denial - works better than you could ever imagine.

Total lockdown of your opponent.

Try playing this a few matches, and see what you think.

I'd appreciate any and all feedback - but I think this deck is just plain busted. The way to play it is to always bounce lands and not creatures if possible, overpower them with mana base, and just cast fatter guys than they have. If not, bounce the ones they have late game and achieve card advantage iwth broodmate or cruel ult.



// Lands
4 [CFX] Exotic Orchard
3 [ALA] Island (3)
2 [ALA] Mountain (1)
1 [ALA] Plains (1)
4 [ALA] Crumbling Necropolis
2 [ALA] Savage Lands
2 [ALA] Seaside Citadel
1 [ALA] Arcane Sanctum
3 [CFX] Rupture Spire
4 [ALA] Jungle Shrine

// Creatures
3 [ALA] Ajani Vengeant
3 [ALA] Broodmate Dragon
4 [ARB] Enlisted Wurm
4 [ARB] Bloodbraid Elf

// Spells
4 [ARB] Deny Reality
2 [ALA] Cruel Ultimatum
4 [ALA] Resounding Wave
3 [ARB] Captured Sunlight
1 [ALA] Jund Charm
4 [ALA] Grixis Charm
2 [ALA] Esper Charm

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [ALA] Jund Charm
SB: 4 [CFX] Volcanic Fallout
SB: 4 [ARB] Maelstrom Pulse
SB: 4 [ALA] Magma Spray

You are playing 4 Bloodbraid Elves, therefore you didn't break the format.

By the way, Ajani Vengeant is a spell. WHY IS IT SO FUCKING DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD THE LATEST MASTERBASE!!!??? Evil or Very Mad

deck theme: successfully ignored.

cd idiotmacros

love you too sweety. But seriously, bloodbraid elf is so good that any deck with a cascade theme should use it...and most that run the colors at all should.

i tried few mtgo games.. mana pool is little bit slow.. i'll try more basics/panorama.. capture sunlight is good when it is hit by cascade.. but i am not happy to draw them.. deny reality are bombs..


so did you end up winning or losing? What matchups did you face? Thanks for playtesting it...I can't afford MTGO
