My goal with this deck was simple: Tokens!!! As a sub goal though, I wanted to take it in a slightly different direction than most token decks I've seen (using Crusade type effects to pump them into an unstoppable army of doom). For my token build I went with upkeep effects- that is, cards which force a player to loose creatures and/or permanents every turn. Also, the token generators I went with mostly create the little buggers without draining mana or requiring situational affects such as attacking. Here's what I've come up with so far (any help or suggestions you can all provide would be appreciated!)

Savra, Queen of the Golgari

Kuon, Ogre Ascendant

Sheoldred, Whispering One
Smokestack
The Abyss
Butcher of Malakir
Grave Pact
Avatar of Woe

I like someone who has the balls to play The Abyss :) You need balls to play Savra, because she draws hate. Or it might just be me, as I drew hate with every other deck I brought last time... Hm. Anyway, you're not running Bloodghast (+Perilous Forays)/Nether Traitor/Reassembling Skeleton, and I think you should.

I also noticed you are running Nath, but you;re not running Sadistic Hypnotist. This means you're actually a nice person, or that you just forgot about it.

One card that is hilarious is Fresh Meat. It's not because this card does in fact work with tokens, but mainly because you can shout "FRESH MEAT" when you play it.

I'm not seeing Eldrazi Monument and I feel like I should be.

I second the Sadistic Hypnotist comment. Bless your kind heart.

Fresh Meat! I don't know how I missed that one! :oops:

Sadistic Hypnotist is pretty damn sadistic. I probably won't run it unless I find the deck doesn't have enough power already- essentially I am 'kind hearted' although you wouldn't know it to talk to my play group. :P

I had Eldrazi Monument until the day before I posted this. lol Basically I was trying to find room in the deck and I didn't feel I needed the 6th "overrun" style card. By that I mean a card that lets my creature army swarm somebody for an instant win. The theme of the deck is more in making them loose every creature on the board to Abyss type stuff. Perhaps I'll slide it in rather than the Beastmaster Ascension. It'd probably be better now that I think on it a second time.

As far as Nether Traitor and friends I'm not sure I want to take the deck in that direction. Obviously they're perfect but I didn't want to just build another Savra deck- I wanted mine to have a bit of a different feel than some of the monsters I've come up against.

Thanks for the help so far guys! Keep the suggestions coming. :)

Hi,

A few suggestions:
I loved me some Dystopia in my Monoblack Control.
Curse of the Cabal is guaranteed to make someone miserable after sacrificing permanents whole game...
Possessed Portal is probably the top of the crop griefer / stax card.

Also, I think winning with tokens + overrun is pretty standard (and to me also boring) way of winning. How about:
Hecatomb, Earthcraft, Black Market, Blasting Station... I am sure those would inspire more diversity in ways of winning the game. Provided that players don't scoop after being trolled by all the forced sacrifice cards... :mrgreen:
