Improved version of krymsonkyng's deck found here:

All credit for original idea goes to krymsonkyng. I've made improvements and additions based on newer cards (the original was made back in 2019).

The main idea of the deck is to steal the opponent's creatures and sacrifice them or make them your own by putting them into your hand. Greatest influence requirements are 2T, 2J, 3S, so play accordingly.

Fine tuning is still needed. It's a bit weak against more aggressive decks. Curve is a bit bad. Sideboard cards are possible additions/substitutions.

This is the first deck I'm posting on this website and I only used cards in my collection, so please go easy on me. I welcome any comments or questions.


Main Deck Notes:
Horus Traver: Influence fixing. Possible cut.
Devotee of the Sands: Ramp. Play shifted to avoid removal.
Lost Scroll: Favorite non-time ramp card
Betray the Cause: Steep 3S requirement. Possible cut. Warp is nice side benefit, though.

Market Cards:
Hidden Garrote: Get rid of pesky aegis so you can more easily steal units, and maybe get rid of a couple other units by killing them outright
Burglarize: Steal powerful relics and relic weapons, make the opponent cry
Nothing Remains: Cost-efficient boardwipe and void hate
Nullblade: Just good, also void hate. Baby Vara, Vengeance-Seeker might be ok here instead.
Azindel, Revealed: Big bomb Azi comes in for the win when you get 8 power

The Rat King: Possibly good. Needs more testing.
Vara, Vengeance-Seeker: Good and removes aegis. Needs more testing.
Shadowcreeper: Removes aegis. Could possibly replace Hidden Garrote in market.
Be Gone: Not fast spell, so less good. Might be good for bouncing opponent's stuff.
Meditation: Worse than other options: slows down draws in a deck that's already struggling with card advantage
Bloodlust: A bit too expensive. Possible market inclusion.
Andrik, Renegade Priest, Grinva, Breaker of Will: Kerendon specials
Lumen Reclaimer, Grodov's Stranger: I hate playing against mill decks
