The deck seems decent, but Hypnotic Specter isn't really the king of beats. The Cutpurse has too go. God that card is SO bad!

Anyways, the deck has too much pain. In fact, there are only 2 lands that don't hurt you. Try focusing on black and green pain lands as those are the most colors you have. Try Tendo Ice Bridge Buy too. I would completely eliminate Perplex if you are already running Persecute and Hyppie.

Cheers.

I like the premise the problem may be is that you are too spread out. A few things I would do is take out 1 Crainial Extraction and 1 Persecute and add 2 more Plauge Boiler. Take out the Farseek's for Gifts Ungiven or Diabilic Tutor, better forms of search and you have 26 mana sources to begin with (including birds). Hope this helps and thanks for rating my deck.

Thanks for your comments on the Dark rewards remake. I'd try this....move extraction to SB...Lose perplex for 4x hinder(perplex isn't great late game.) Persecute could go to SB as well.....I dunno if it's even needed there...not mana mono decks around.My SB would be
3x naturalize
3x Extraction
3x laughter
3x doppleganger
3x boiler

Add moroii for sure...and probably some more accel like reach. Definately a good start.

Ok, here's the breakdown:
-2 extractions (sb)
+2 boilers

-4 farseek
+4 kodama's reach (way better i think)

-2 persecute
+2 moroii OR kokusho

thats what i think, and im kinda gonna go against the guys who dissed your perplex. i think it works well in the deck, and here's why, it transmutes. in dire times u can pull a boiler, specter, putrefy, and other nifty 3 mana cards u got n there (if u have ne other). this deck as a lot of potential, alot.

plz rate my U\G agro control deck

I'd say your mana base is perfect. To the above poster: try casting Kodama's Reach Buy when you have no basic lands in your deck and tell me how good it is.

However, I would probably take out the black legendary land and put in a blue one, or just an island. The reason is that all you probably want Mana Leak on the second turn, and Hypnotic on the third. Not sure which is more important to you though. The Shinka -> Island will sway it one way or the other a percent or so.

I would probably drop Perplex in favor of Hinder or even Convolute. If you're casting Perplex to counter the spell, drop it. If it's to keep their hand empty, keep it. You might want Convolute more than Hinder in this 3 color deck.

1st, Thanx for the rate.
2nd, Your deck. -2Carven Caryatid Buy +2Dimir Cutpurse Buy He should always be able to hit if you have good creature control. -4Perplex Buy +4 Hinder Buy this will be more consistant I know no transmute but something like this shouldn't need transmute. -4Farseek Buy +4Last Gasp Buy your running black this is cheap and 1 of the best creature control in type 2. -2Persecute Buy -2Plague Boiler Buy this isn't consistant enough you might wanna add something like Umezawa's Jitte Buy anywayz plague boiler will destroy your creatures also. More card drawing will need to be quite and essential to this deck -2 Keiga -2 Kokusho add something like Ninja of the Deep Hours Buy or Dark Confidant Buy you will draw more, highest life lost will be 3, and if you can play with Umezawa's Jitte life should not be a problem. Hope this helps.

I like this deck, nice even deck with noy too many big creatures nor little guys. I only have to say that i don't think you need the carven caryatids because you are playing blue which has plenty of draw spells even black has a few and those are better than the caryatid. I would suggest consult the necrosages which has the bonus of also having a discard affect if needed. Also although at times perplex can be good the fact that it gives your opponent the choice of effect so they can decide what willl hurt him or her least. This atomatically downgrades this cards usefulness. I suggest good old hinder or maybe rewind (i'm not sure on the rewind or even remand. I know you probably won't take this advice but hear me out. Remand is an early counter that is easy to splash, draws you a card and if you don't think a mana leak will cut it play the remand first then when your opponent tries to play the card again they won't have enough to pay the mana leak. finally you might need two last gasp for times that you can't afford to tap 3. Good luck.

Wow this is a very tight deck, seems solid! the only change i would make is get rid of perplex for remand. Its a turn earlier, card advantage and tempo control plus its an easier mana requirement. maybe think of goryo's vengeance if you wanted a grave theme added in, but to be fair is looks crazy solid right now. Excellent job dude. Tak.

ps. rate my firemane control please
