Apparently I’m not the only one who feels like Cartouche is a dirty word.
I’ve seen some versions of this deck out there, but here’s mine anyhow.
There’s a couple of pretty strong zombies in the new set, so perhaps the archetype would finally be strong enough, although I do have my reservations.
Liliana wins on her own. We just need to protect her long enough. The state of the format is such, that this grindy approach might not work, but come on, Liliana.
No Elven Mystic available, but that part of Standard seems to be permanently over. However, there is several fairly efficient manaproducers in the format, like Servant of the Conduit and Rishkar, Peema Renegade and then there’s these two:
There’s also Kiora, Master of the Depths, which might work, but I wouldn’t bet on it.
This seems powerful…
How about if we combine her with these:
This might be a bit generic, because there’s already quite a few sac-centric decks, but at least its monoblack, so lets try this out.
Even if this one isn’t actually the bomb certain people want it to be, I don’t see why I couldn’t dream about using it. This could be Grixis as well, but the mana requirements might be a bit too much, although we could probably just use the cycle-duals to splash something. I’m not entirely sure what, though.
Actually, not maybe quite as much Madness as simply just discarding stuff. And a red aggro deck, with a side of green.
