Holy Hades, what happened? I put Dark Confidant in here? I thought this was a cheap deck!
It still is, relatively. Also, our good friend Bob seems to have dropped in price a bit. Picked up all three for a little more than what used to be the price of one.
So, what have I done with this list lately?
Dark Confidant is in for Graveborn Muse
Innocent Blood is in for Inquisition of Kozilek
Withered Wretch is in for Skirsdag High Priest
I don't think anyone will disagree that Bob is the better draw engine. I need to get him out earlier than I could get the Muse. Twelve discard spells was a bit overkill, especially against aggro decks. Innocent Blood coming in for the Inquisition gives me some good removal and another way to get rid of risky Bobs if I get that low. I hated to take out the Skirsdag because he's so much fun, but he never really goes off. Withered Wretch has a little more punch and he gives me main deck graveyard hate. Goyf's a *****.
Wretch freed up room in the sideboard, so I dropped the Leylines for a sort of board wipe with Sudden Spoiling. It's a super versatile answer. I really think it's something I can take advantage of with all my 2 power creatures. Unearth had been underwhelming, so it's gone for Tragic Slip to give me another edge against aggro decks after game one.
Big question: Leyline or Surgical Extraction? Extraction works as more than just graveyard hate, but nothing hates graveyards like the leyline. Leyline doesn't work as well with Bob because of the high CMC. Surgical Extraction doesn't need to be in my opening hand. This one's a toss up to me.
Any thing you'd change?
