Quote from ryansaxe »I have been playing this since the release of THB and it has been AWESOME!
1 - Tainted Pact can be played like an Impulse variant in almost every black deck.
2 - While Thassa's Oracle and Jace aren't the best cards, they're fine playables. Much more so than Twin counterparts.
3 - Laboratory Maniac is too bad to include IMO, but Nexus of Fate also has redundancy here for infinite turns!
I don't include Doomsday or Inverter of Truths (might add inverter). I think in general you should add Necropotence instead of Doomsday because it can be played outside this deck, but also can burn through your whole library. Similarly, Doom Whisperer is great with it. I also have Hermit Druid for a bit more redundancy, and that card has seen plenty of play in GB reanimator and general G midrange.
There's a lot more redundancy than it looks, and I strongly suggest trying it out. One of my favorite control decks I've ever drafted had zero creatures and Oath of Druids. Oath of Druids lategame would take infinite turns because of Nexus of Fate!

Said the guy who advocated for Solemnity just a couple of hours ago. Don't want to be rude here, sincerly, but how those cards could be worse than Solemnity? Looks like clear double standards here. There's absolutly nothing parasitic in the package Saxe's suggested.

Quote from wtwlf123 »
Oracle is also playable in quite a few places. But the Jace and the Maniac I feel are too narrow, and would only ever see play in the combo deck.
Both Doomsday and Inverter of Truth are also quite narrow, and would likely also be combo-exclusive cards.
Quote from wtwlf123 »You can find a less rude way to not be rude then. Like perhaps asking questions about my stance on cards and the reasoning behind my statements instead of having your first comment include accusations of double standards and things like "says the guy who..." kinds of crap. If you want to know, ask.
