I’ve into Magic : the Gathering for some time now. 4 months to be exact. I was casual player, not really into tournaments and stuff. Just like to play it casually Friday nights.

I was a casual player. Now something went wrong. I got addicted to it. Everyday I think what do I need to do to counter this spells, or kill that creature, etc. I even have my own signature deck which is a mono-black-deathtouch-lifegain-sanguine-devotion deck. Let’s call it lifedeath deck. Here’s the list :

Main Deck

Creatures

4 x Festering Newt
4 x Thrill Kill Assassin
4 x Agents of Fates
3 x Nightveil Spectre
2 x Bogbrew Witch
2 x Liliana Reaver
2 x Gray Merchant of Asphodel
1 x Erebos, God of the Dead

Spells

4 x Doomblade
2 x Hero’s Downfall
2 x Whip of Erebos
4 x Boon of Erebos
2 x Crypt Incursion
2 x Sanguine Bond
1 x Bubbling Cauldron

Lands
1 x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
20 x Swamp

Sideboard
4 x Baleful Eidolon
3 x Read the Bones

What do you think? Crypt with Sanguine Bond is a bomb enough, provided that all my creatures are in my graveyard.
