Deck Notes

This deck wants to draw cards, get value for draws, and fill your opponent’s graveyard fast. Cards like Gix and Sheoldred add value to your draws and cost to your opponent’s, and Lilianna, Brotherhood’s End, and Abrade keep your opponent on the back foot. For added spice, Fable of the Mirror-Breaker gives you treasures and hand tuning, then flips to give you extra activations of Bloodtithe Harvester and Graveyard Trespasser without sacrificing the creature. With all the destruction, graveyard shenanigans, and hand filtration you can do, this deck will leave your opponent burned in no time.

MTG is ever-changing, with new busted and broken cards rising to the top. Check back in next week for the upcoming top deck.
