This deck is based on my previous deck No-longer-unit-less unitless control
. I’ve made some significant changes to the deck and it got me from gold 3 to master within 2 days.
This deck primarily preys on big clunky mid-range decks built to beat Combrei Aggro. Also it has a pretty good match up against Praxis token and other control decks.
Things I realized while playing with the previous version:
1. Rain of Frogs
is bad in multiples, running 4 blue merchants and 1 in the market maximizes the chance of getting it early in match-ups where it’s useful.
2. The deck needs more board wipes to beat token and End of the Story
happens to be amazing against mid-range as well.
3. Running too many card selection spells may result in them getting stuck in your hand in the early game when you are low on cards or short of power. So I cut 2 Cull the Deck
4. Because I’m not running cards like Devastating Setback
or Azindel's Gift
which require a lot of shadow influence, now I’m afford to run less dual-lands and have some seek power and sigils to lower the chance of getting power screwed.

- Added 2 copies of Unstable Form
. I got the inspiration from Second Blue’s Icaria Blue list and tried this card, it ended up performing amazingly well. It pops 2 aegises, provides 2 cards for Strategize
and merchants, and also happens to deal with a turn 2 teacher. May even consider playing a 3rd copy.
- 2 copies of Annihilate
, I played some more games with it, and found it pretty good in the current meta, (thanks to people in the comment that suggested it). Very tempo efficient against Sheriff Marley
and Jotun Feast-Caller
. Remember to mark it back when playing against Icaria decks and scream decks.
- 1 less Vara's Favor
and shadow sigil. I found that Vara's Favor
doesn’t actually fix my influence, since I only need 1 shadow. Also we have Unstable Form
to take care of enemy aegis. So I switched them out for 2 dual-lands.
- Also the Rank 20 click bait ^~^
Thanks for reading my thoughts. If you want to know more about this deck, check out the previous version. I wrote a detailed analysis there. And finally I hope you have a good time with this deck.
