Write-up for this one is going to take a while since there SO MUCH involved in the gameplay. This can be a very difficult deck to play, ranking much higher than even Arclight Phoenix for difficulty.

Watch the video to get an idea of what it does.


Full write-up ETA is still to be determined.

If you happen to play against me, and I time out or play slowly I sincerely apologize! When not in my home office, I sometimes have issues that can cause slow play. It is absolutely not intentional, and absent those issues, I try to make very fast plays.

it is a good deck the pay off for its combos is hard on lands draw power is super strong and draw quality is improved by beanstalk with clover to thin deck I like just needs a bomb in it granted u can say beanstalks 7 cost is bomb but it needs to stay on field and get swing either way I like any deck using karn for toolbox super useful
Love this concept, a good player will understand the combos that can be pulled off with shepard of the flock. Really nice work, for best of 1 i have been running a 3rd sorc spyglass to deal with inventions. Going to test more on best of 3
I can't really understand what this deck is trying to do..Feels very weak against pretty much anything, especially aggro.
stop playing field of the dead jamoke
This deck never played field of the dead in it.
well it wasn't banned when this deck was made man.
Fields is banned
I do like the idea
trying it out
