Information

Overview:
Other scream lists were just not cheap enough for me. This focuses entirely on commons and uncommons without the need for any rares to significantly lower the cost. This should offer a cheap option so you can play a Scream deck immediately without having to grind too much if at all.

For an even cheaper version you can replace:
Twilight Raptor with Blood Beetle (Basically same, but you have to hit with beetle)
Deathstrike with Execute (VERY not recommended as you can't remove defenders)
Cabal Recruiter with some decent summon or entomb ability (must be below 4 power)


Basic Gameplan:
Keep up pressure with infiltrate creatures which force the opponent to play passive and block. Get in and trigger infiltrate by using Levitate or by removing threats with your many removal spells such as Deathstrike and Permafrost. Use Haunting Scream to bring back creatures so they can immediately attack and trigger infiltrate again (see below section). Quickly go through your deck to find the cards you need with Scheme (This can help stop power flooding as you can dump power to the bottom), Wisdom of the Elders, and triggering Gorgon Fanatic so you always have something to play.

Feel free to swap some removal around to your liking. Violent Gust is a very strong option as it will allow you to more reliably get in with Levitate.


Haunting Scream and Dark Return:
One of the most important things to understand is how these cards interact. When a creature is sent to the void it KEEPS all modifiers attached to it. This means that after you use Haunting Scream the creature will still have Charge and Flying in the void (and any modifiers from previous infiltrate triggers) which will allow you to Dark Return it, play it, and immediately attack the next turn with an even better creature!
