I'm perversely fascinated by this entire thread. Also, I love the internet. Rolling Eyes

Angels are already dead. I think that makes you a wanna be necrophiliac.

@Arch_Razael --- It's pretty hard to enlighten someone when you don't even know what the word means, sir.

My attitude toward others is just. You might not see it that way, but you don't know what you're seeing.

As for the relevant portion of your post, I do think that crumbling necro is good. I have no space at the moment unless I cut sac lands or man lands...Neither of which I like on paper. I'll test it a little bit and see. Well, i dont really need to test it. I can just goldfish it out. I again don't care about analysis on Baneslayer being my only win con...It hasn't mattered yet, so I assume it will not matter in the future.

@ Amoose --- As for the couriers capsule idea. I think its pretty decent. I kind of like Ponder more, as getting it on turn 1 keeps my whole paranoia of tapping out early not bad. Also you can get it on turn 3 if you lead with a CipT land, which is good too.

@ engrishskill --- as far as the sphere...I just don't know. With 10 fetches already and only 11 basic lands... I might need to change things. I like that card though, as it completely sets it up from then on out. I kind of wanted to splash a 4th color too...I really like terminate over lightning bolt, and thought hemmorage. I'm getting ahead of myself there...I understand.

As for anyone else with relevant posts that "got lost in the shuffle" I apologize.

For anyone who thinks this tread is funny, You're welcome.

For anyone who thinks I "don't know what I'm talking about". In a Magic The Gathering sense you might be right, but in a philosophical sense...You probably aren't.

Its funny what you read after taking a nap.

Pretty sure angels in the M:tG universe have gender. After all, if your average Serra Angel is clearly capable of breastfeeding, how weird would it be that she couldn't have lil baby angels of her own? Is she just the patron saint of breasts? If so, shouldn't she have more of them?

for what it's worth:

i still think capsule should maindeck, just to keep the deck's gas going

and really, really, you should replace maindeck essence scatter with flashfreeze; what does essence scatter counter that you really dont want to hit that flashfreeze doesn't? i mean, you already run 4x PtE

and, you should really find room for 4x lightning bolt; it's such an efficient spell

and also, just what i would do, find room for maindeck into the roil; i really don't think ajani is doing anything for you, he's another target, he'll, with your deck, usually be an overpriced lightning helix, and into the roil is just an all-around answer, doing so much, for the owl match-up, pyromancer matchup, the mirror to bounce a bsa, eldrazi, etc.

and if you wanted to add a 4th color, which i would recommend, you get access to duress, which would be so important to protect your win-con for games 2/3,

and i guess after testing you went down to 3 day of judgement, but really? so many decks run either purely creatures or shroud creatures, i would really think that getting a DoJ is super important. it would improve so many game 1 match ups.

and, for the sb, you could easily replace the ruinblasters for spreading seas. it's a much more efficient spell, it replaces itself, doesn't have the double red, and would be helpful again to jund, which remains the best deck in the format. you say you like the swerve, which i imagine does some neat things some times, but how many match-ups does it really hose? the sb should win you games 2/3, which more wall of denial would do, pithing needle would do, duress would do, thought hemo would do, etc.
