Deck Description

A deck themed around giving your opponent creatures, then punishing them for it

How to Play

Everything is themed around giving your opponent creatures or making them suffer for getting; having; and attacking with creatures.

Forbidden Orchard and Mercy Killing give the opponent 1/1 creatures. I often tap Forbidden Orchard at the end of the opponent's turn just to increase the opponent's creature count. NEVER play Forbidden Orchard on turn one, and try avoid playing it on turn two. Turn three+ should be late enough to start punishing the opponent each time you give him a creature.

Hissing Miasma and Batwing Brume make the opponent lose life for each attacking creature.

Blood Seeker and Suture Priest make the opponent lose life for each creature they get. This works wonders with Forbidden Orchard.

Pillory of the Sleepless is for the pesky creatures you do not want attacking.

Batwing Brume; Ethereal Haze; and Dawn Charm are necessary Fogs. Without Fogging your creatures you give can end up killing you.

By the time you draw Stronghold Discipline you should be able to win without it, or it'll end the game.

Deck discussion for It's a matter of Discipline

Nice. Looks like it would be a pain to play against. Shame you aren't using red though. There are two VERY effective red cards at giving the opponent a lot of creatures, though one is conditional. I'm working on a deck that uses them and massacre wurm for a big kill

I've been working on this deck for years, and sadly, any 3rd colour slows down this already slow deck (there's a loooooooong setup time). The best red card for a deck like this is probably Rakdos Charm. Instant speed 1 damage per creature for only 2 mana is pure awesomeness.
