Ok, I know you said the deck was budget, but you should invest in Thoughtseize Buy.

It'll be well worth it.

Get the prowlers and 4 Earwig squad..Stupor Buy would be fantastic.

Once you've got these take out the 4 darkness.

and DONT put in Damnations if you get them, it takes away from the aggro/discard them you have.

yeah I know I need the thoughtseize...but it being a 17.50 dollar card...and me only having one...I would need 3 more of them...plus y eareig? it doesn't help with the discard really...I can take a big threat of their deck but after that....it prolly wouldn't hnit once and what would I take out?...the darkness helps when against a true aggro deck....or just a beatdown deck...I have played them before with fairies and they helped a lot since both fairies and rogue dont hit for much...thx for the comment tho :0 and yeah I need to get both the prowlers and thoughtsieze

unless your playing a flying weenie deck you shouldn't have a problem with most decks that are aggro remember you can be just as aggro just need to move some things around this is what i would do.

Creatures
Oona's Blackguard x4
Oona's Prowler x4
Prickly Boggart x4
Stinkdrinker bandit x4
Frogtosser banneret x4

Non-Creature
Bitterblossom x3
megrim x4
the rack x4
mindshatter x2
distress x2
Noggin Whack x2
Nameless Inversion x3

that's my thoughts on it it's up to you what you do with it peace.

check out one of my decks if you get a chance.

Ok I looked up your deck and your sideboard and wondered why you put Bitterblossom Buy in your sideboard. It gives you a lot of creatures.
I would put some Temporal Extortion Buy in your deck. It is mono black so you won't have to worry about the mana and who does not need an extra turn. A card I really like is Smallpox Buy but I'm not sure if this really improves your deck. But it is fun to play Happy

Good luck Good

Please rate my Bad Fate deck

actually yeah im prolly gonna put 2 smallpox in to see how they run thx for the advice ^^

If anyone knows what I can put in against w/U or mono U control(like guile control) I really need something

Bitterblossom is in SB cuz when I had built the deck I didn't have darkness and I ended up using the creatures I got to chump block...will prolly move it to main soon

I am a fan of rogues and that very fun prowl ability, so i hope your deck does well.
Might want to consider Auntie's Snitch Buy for a bit of reusable aggro. I've had this guy used against me to annoyingly effective results.

if you feel like a rateback, could you look at my simic slith deck?

Good deck, but I think theres a bit TOO much discard here. If you were going to run so much discard I'd suggest maybe main boarding Megrim in place of a bitterblossom and the terrors (terrors a side board card IMO). Maybe tack in a few more beaters too. Solid deck otherwise, it just has a lot of stall potential, especially against mono blue or blue/black fairy control decks.

I was considering running megrims but I found that just the rack and my rogues do more than enough damage....bitterblossom gives my deck a swarming win condition...terrors are def amazing...I usually face big trampling stuff so I found that it works well.....plus people usually are afraid of play too many cards because of the rack...the only problem I had was with a kithkin deck which uns lots of enchants (griffen guide, glorious anthem..etc)

nice deck overall but try to see if you can add extirpates in. it can really screw up a control deck if all the copies of the card are gone.

actually yeah I was considering it once I got the money together to get a few (right now I only have one) I would like to see what happens to my friends kithkin deck if I extipate his knights and griffen guide, or his glorious anthem

Looks good to me it is just missing Frogtosser Banneret Buy so that your rogues cast 1 less to play. It's nice being able to play both Oona's Blackguard Buy and Oona's Prowler Buy for just {B}.

I think you should remove Sudden Spoiling Buy and instead use Profane Command Buy.

Maybe add some storage lands like Dreadship Reef Buy or Molten Slagheap Buy.

Please rate my "Doran the Destroyer" deck.

I have a very simalar deck to this on magic online that I put together for less then 5 tix. Ov. no thoughtseize, actually I think it has 0 rares. I win 90% of the time with my deck so I'm sure this one is very good. My only suggestions is to get another 1 drop like {card}Nightshade Stinger{/card} and go for prowl turn 2. {card}Frogtosser Banneret{/card} also makes things very fast since most your spells are rogue. I also have {card}Dunerider Outlaw{/card} due to the high number of green decks online. Against mono green I never attack more then twice with Dunerider before my opponent concedes. Your deck is a little more balanced, mines mostly agro with removal. Thanks for the point about Demigod. Oversight on my part but still good senergy with my deck so I think I'll still try it.

This looks like a good deck, but I think you have too much creature kill? why don't you put Funeral Charm Buy? remember, this is a discard deck, atleast you can choose between discard and creature kill. or maybe put a Tormod's Crypt Buy so you can stop those graveyard diggers (like Tarmogoyf Buy, flashbacks, etc.)

please rate my black white discarder. thanks in advance.

Combining a tribal creature deck with discard spells is really hard...your always wanting good draws every turn. I know its a good "idea" to combine a deck like this but your only thinking that your gonna draw the best cards every turn. Personally i've tried making a deck similar to this but then i have many problems such as: MANA, OONA'S BLACKGUARD AND PROWLING.

The mana problem is always that you want to play multiple spells per turn to disrupt their hand or you need mana leftover to play a 'terror' on their tun.

The blackguard was really hard because if you didnt have that in play, many of your other cards wouldn't matter, they would just be weak chump blockers trying to stall time.

The prowling is the hardest bit as you need LOTS of Rogue creatures in your deck. Bitterblossom helps but that will put too much pressure on yourself to cast it. It really sux sometimes when you have prowling cards in your hand but you dont have any creatures.

I suggest that you either pick a discard deck OR a aggro rogue deck WITH discard to control the game (BUT DON'T USE The Rack Buy!!!)

Choosing both just creates too many dilemas.
