The draining is really damn useful though. It never flips but when I get it out decently early it often does 10 damage around the table. I mostly play 4 and 5 player games, so it does tons and tons of work.

Not to mention that using magister sphinx on myself when everyone is below 10 to style everyone to death is enormous disrespect, which makes my table salty as hell.

I realize that I sound like "help me edhg, what should I swap? Oh not that one though, that one is good" but both of these cards have proven themselves very well.

I have a few suggestions for pillowforting in those colors if you'd like to hear. Even in aggro decks, I think a solid defense is a valuable part of long term games.

i basically just stuff the deck witha bunch of board wipes, self milling cards, tutors, and aura. the rest of it is pretty much just some spot removal and low drop creatures that get value from enchantments. everyone know that if i get attacked ill just board wipe so they stay away from me most of the time. the whole idea is to get your auras anywhere but in your library and try to make sure you get indestructible and an unblockable enchantment out. eldrazi conscription is basically your game ender and that one blue enchantment that give you infect

I really like stealing effects in a deck like that. It gives you more options for political play. For example, you'll be able to ally yourself with someone by giving him a permanent you stole from the threat on the board. I'd take out Felidar Sovereign unless you have intense life gain. It paint a target on you, and most people consider a win with cards like that aren't 'true' victories. Are you playing group hug? If not, I'd replace Shared Fate with Rhystic Study. It gives you better draw power for cheaper and doesn't help your opponents. How does the deck stand when it comes down to the final two? Pillow forting is great, but it'll be hard to pull out a win if you deck doesn't have any teeth to it.

It's still strategy.

You can look at your hand, think of which cards you are most likely to benefit from the most, and cast those spells.

Say you have 2 creatures in hand and only 3 more creatures in your deck. Then you are way more likely to control which one you hit than casting a random sorcery when you run 15.

Ink-Treader's great because somehow nobody ever sees it coming the first time. It's by no means an optimized deck but people just let me durdle and cast Spawning Breath into Act of Treason and Sigil Blessing and stuff like that. Brightflame and Prophetic Bolt take ages to resolve but I try to be quick about it and they're so powerful with enough creatures on the battlefield.

magical Christmas combo that came to mind after seeing some aether revolt spoilers:

>krark-clan ironworks and the new scrap trawler in play
>also junk diver and myr retriever in play
>also any 2 of tormod's crypt/Mox Opal/Mox Diamond/mana crypt/sol ring/Dispeller's capsule/executioner's capsule/skullclamp/Hangarback walker

Okay so I sac the 2 cheap artifacts, floating 4 mana.
sac the retriever and diver, floating 8 mana
Trawler triggers return the 2 cheap artifacts, diver and retriever triggers return each other to my hand
Cast them all for 5 or 6 or 7 mana, still floating 1 or 2 or 3
Repeat for infinite mana

Totally realistic

It would be even more broken if it wasn't a triggered ability, but instead an activated ability, tap 2 creatures that share a color: copy target instant or sorcery of that color

Then you could second harvest, copy it, when the copy resolves you'd have more guys, tap them to copy it again, etc etc

Id cut all the non-combo mill cards as mill is shut unless you're decking someone.
Also cut the walls out, you're not milling.
Add in some wraths, crux of fate and especially life's finale. Also add dire undercurrents, that card is sweet. Add elixir of immortality for arcanis+mind over matter combo.
Otherwise it looks ok. Nothing exceptional and a lot of sub optimal cards but functional for sure
