a Mirrodin Block Constructed deck that kills alot but
doesn't require super-expensive cards like Broodstar

? Then read on, friend. Read on.

This deck is all about destroying everything -
EVERYTHING. However, this deck also has a little twist
- while you destroy everything, you hurt your
opponent.


Anyways, there are a few cards to analyze before you
read the deck in full, so let me explain the main
concept this deck revolves upon.

How's this work? Well, your deck is artifact heavy.
And if you play a Mirrodin Block Constructed
tournament, so will theirs. So, all you have to do is
get damage through (more cards to make that easier
later) with a creature containing Worldslayer

, destroy
EVERYTHING, and then laugh maniacally as 37 copies of
Disciple Of The Vault's triggered ability appear on
the stack. And noone likes losing 37 life and all
their creatures, lands, artifacts, and enchantments.


Obviously, you don't want to be in such a disadvantage
yourself. So, toss in a few cards to guarantee you the
upper hand...

OK, so I couldn't think of any other cards to help you
when they go to the graveyard. Give me a break, it's a

Now, as you might have noticed, some of the cards in
this deck are pretty damn mana-intensive. So, we'll
need a good number of cards to make sure you don't get
mana screwed.
