Lethal Vapors Buy and Pithing Needle Buy can make a very nasty combo.
and something to reset your opponent's hand once you have the lockdown in play like Wit's End Buy or cheaper cards like Persecute Buy, and I love creatureless decks...
I think you don't need Barter in Blood Buy and Brainspoil Buy since you have Damnation Buy, instead you should add some Diabolic Tutor Buys.

Check where it say's E-tags, it hepls you to link to any card, html adress or images.

Pithing Needle Buy is not needed in this deck. It even is bad because later on, I want to play creatures and then I can't. The disadvantage of Diabolic Tutor Buy is that my opponent can use it too because he can search a card of HIS own deck. And what should I put in for Barter in Blood Buy. I need this creature removal.
As you might have recognized this deck can't win. It has to use the opponents cards to win.

PS: I already know how I can write card links. I wanted to know how I can link to this deck.

You mean link this deck as in like this ?

If this is what you want, do this...

[*url=(insert link to deck here)](insert text here)[*/url]

Just take out the asterisks and fill the brackets with the necessary information.

Awesome Deck :D, first ever Shared Fate deck I've seen. Everything looks good. The only thing I would change is Distress Buy for a different discard card. I don't like it because of its {B}{B} mana cost. Try something like Duress Buy instead seeing as it is cheap and you still get to see their hand - you already have enough cards that take care of creatures, so this one is for potential "threats" that come in the form of spells, enchantments or artifacts.

Interesting idea, i like decks that are original and try to win based on a card that needs support to become effective.

As i am not a tournament player, i am not sure my suggestion helps, but i thought of Mindslaver Buy as it fits your idea to control opponent's deck (combined with recursion to use it on several turns). However it might be used against you so maybe it's too risky to add.

Hope this helped a bit!

Mindslaver Buy is a bit too expensive and it
maybe helps my opponent too much. It depends on his deck

Heya..
I think the best way to abuse Shared Fate is to have your deck resolve almost exclusively around getting that card into play as soon as possible.

That means you should play pretty much only tutoring, mana acceleration and a few (fewer) disruption cards. You're quite on track there, but I'm very much missing the acceleration part and see a bit too much disruption. You would only need it the first 2 to 3 turns.
If you get it into play, you win pretty much automatically since such a deck is completely incapable to win. You could think about getting some sort of lifegain in here, since all you need to do is stall until Shared Fate hits play. And for your opponent lifegain does nothing but postpone the inevitable.

I'll play some games with this deck first. Then I see which cards I work well and which don't.
I considered about Chrome Mox Buy. Another cheaper possibilty would be Dimir Signet Buy or Fellwar Stone Buy. The advantage of Fellwar Stone Buy is that I can use my opponents spells as soon as I get them and I don'T have to wait for some more mana. But I'll put it into the deck after some more test games.

Very nice, unique deck.

Im trying to think of something useful to recommend to you but over the past couple of days havent really come up with anything.

I would say remove Distress Buy and add 2 more Durress but I see why you have it there.

Breakthrough Buy could be useful depending on the circumstances.
With Consult the Necrosages Buy you could pick what you want according to the circumstance.

Thanks for rating my Elven Ambush deck!

Question... how do you win the mirror match? (or a match with a similar concept deck?) Also, you don't have any instant spell removal (except for quicksand I guess), so if someone is playing 4 Treetop village you'll be in a disadvantage.

A match against a deck with the same concept can't be won. I know that. But the chance to play a deck with the same concept is very low.
And if my opponent is going for things like Treetop Village Buy I have to try to discard those cards. Maybe I'll add another Quicksand Buy.

You can try playing Faerie Conclave Buy and Ghost Quarter Buy. Both of them are uncommon and not that expensive.
