Let's get back to some sixty card madness. Sure, tonight I'll be playing Doomtown but it'll be thinking of...well, Doomtown. One thing at a time. I tried to streamline the cards in a couple decks and I'm looking forward to seeing how those play out. I'm also a couple expansions short so I'll probably try and pick those up...

But I'm getting distracted. Let's get to some decklistin'!

8 Swamp
4 Verdant Catacombs
7 Forest
3 Treetop Village

4 Pernicious Deed
4 Mirri's Guile

2 Darksteel Colossus
4 Dark Confidant
4 Gamekeeper

1 Eternal Witness
4 Cabal Therapy
4 Raven's Crime
4 Call of the Herd
4 Duress
3 Gaea's Blessing

The basic plan? Play Gamekeeper, sacrifice Gamekeeper, get Darksteel Colossus, win. To help me do that: Mirri's Guile and Dark Confidant as the card drawing engine. Discard and Pernicious Deed to protect the Colossus (and me), Gaea's Blessing in case I need to start over and Call of the Herd and Treetop Village provide some win conditions if for some reason nothing else is going on. Riding a Treetop Village to victory is a long standing tradition, so why not?

I just named this after a Transformer, probably because I wanted a deck that started with the letter V. I'm a little quirky like that.

Possible thoughts: Hissing Quagmire, and more copies of Darksteel Colossus. At the moment, that's all I got, so hopefully when I take this for a spin, some new ideas will pop up.


  1. also green suns zenith....admittedly my brain wants to turn this into nic fit with veteran exploders with a twist using emrakul as your big fatty.

    1. Given the meta, Maelstrom Pulse > Abrupt Decay, probably but GSZ doesn't have enough targets to make it worthwhile and putting Veteran Explorers wrecks the Gamekeeper thing.

    1. Does not cooperate with Colossus, unfortunately.
