Memes to a Zhen-Zu

Cost Curve




This probably isn't the ideal form of this deck, but when it goes off it's highly amusing.

The central combo is to get Means to an End, Zhen-Zu, Hand of Nahid, and (optionally) Katra, the Devoted in play, and then make a ridiculously large board and eventually kill them by decking yourself and triggering the Means.

I'd welcome feedback on possible better card choices -- I just threw this together by including the central combo and then searching for "cultist".

Love this idea, I think you can ditch Xenan Fanatic though. Theres a lot of better options at that cost, Wingbrewer and Shadowlands Guide come to mind, but I might even go with Vara, Vengeance-Seeker at the cost of losing some flavor for deck stability.

Agreed -- Xenan Fanatic has been underperforming in my testing. Thanks for the suggested replacements!

FYI, you added the market to the sideboard so when you export you don’t get the market

Whoops, thanks! I've now fixed it.

Part of what makes this so interesting is how dirt cheap the combo is in power. Eager to see where this goes. All the cultists you searched for seem to go really, really well with the combo.

I'd almost rather play the BW merchant so you have 8 ways to reach the extra means, but I understand why Auralian Merchant is good. Still, do you need the extra mana with how cheap everything is?

You can't run the Smuggler and maindeck Means.

Ah, right, duh. Sorry about that.
