No sideboard found.

The owner of this deck hasn't added a sideboard, they probably should...

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

I'm trying to keep this budgeted, but effective. Don't know if it'll work out so well or not, though.

Partially built with cards I own, partially with cards budgeted enough that I can acquire.

I feel like it should achieve a slow lock down with Nether Traitor (and Bloodghast) as the only real win condition. I also feel like it will lack consistency given my lack of Enlightened Tutors.

Extirpate == Surgical Extraction
Amber Prison == Isolation Cell
Clock of Omens == Unwinding Clock

Deck discussion for Surgical Extraction

Nice design. It's a very toolbox-y design for Extraction, but it's certainly an Extraction none-the less.

Welcome to the world of Extraction =]

Awesome ^-^ Glad to hear I'm not way off. I figure its one of those things I can play with now and allow it to evolve over time.. something I don't typically do very often.

I'm actually going to scrap this deck. I'm trying to do too much at once with it, and the only reason I'm running W/B is for Castigate as a replacement for Thoughtseize. I'm going to try a traditional bruise control, but with budgeted replacements (I really wish I could afford Mox Diamonds with my Crucible's >.>). I'll send you a link when it is finished, please let me know if it's a step forward or backwards :) This is really a new world of control for me.. I typically try more off the wall combo-synergies.. and am really enjoying the learning experience with Extraction :)

Okay, here is V2.0 in U/B. It's still toolbox-y but I rather like that since I mostly play multi-player, and I think it'll work better given the iso-tutoring available. Please check it out and let me know what you think, and feel free to suggest card changes.
