This particular deck is illegal for tournament play but it’s nasty in casual play. It’s a deck of many combos, some old some new, and every combo can cripple your opponents game play.

, search for B.F.M. and put him into your graveyard then Animated Dead for a turn two kill, smacking your opponent upside the head for 98. Even though I’ve never got B.F.M. out turn one, this combo is very quick and effective. Plus, who wants a 99/99 creature that can’t be blocked by more than three creatures out by turn 2-4, I know I do.

This particular combo I did not make up I borrowed this combo from a fellow article writer from Cardshark, and it is very fun to pull off. I have pulled off this combo a couple times, and as I recall winning every time that I did.

This combo is mainly used for emergency situations but if I get this combo out when I’m being overrun by creatures, then no damage is being dealt and no damage is being received. Hooray!
I don’t really have a name for this deck but everyone calls it the B.F.M. deck, I guess it can stay that way.

This deck is probably the best deck I own, too bad that it’s not tournament legal but whatever I still love the look on my opponents face when beat them, especially if I beat them using B.F.M.

I do not know what’s about it but if I’m playing against a person I haven’t played before and when they see that they’re staring down a 99/99 Big Furry Monster, I just love the look on their face.
