Nice deck. Similar to the 'original' green/black pox deck using those tarmogoyfs.

I have to ask, what do you generally grab with your living wishes?

thought i`d take a peek at your decks. good ole, nevynrral`s disk, strange name huh. i love this card, pretty much says, please buckle your seatbelts, and start over. as far as your question for legacy, my favorite, i think anything goes. dispite, popular deck themes, like blue white merfolk, or latest tendril`s, or reanimator, when you run straight black, hand disruption seems to be the way to go. however, as magic goes, surprise is anyones best asset these days. unfortunatly i`d have to play test the deck, love how it looks though. let us know how it plays out.

ohhh yeah, good ole lake of the dead might help. what ya think.

yeah your right. no point in lake of dead if there`s no swamps to sack for it`s boom. from that stand point, very solid deck.

for casual play this is very good but this is nowere close to tourney level. first of all you run too many creatures 8 to 10 is more and enought. also you need more discard such as
Hymn to Tourach, Inquisition of Kozilek and or
Thoughtseize because this deck is all about discard in the early turns and some land distruction such as sinkhole or rain of tears
since you are already sacraficing lands to Pox and Smallpox you should run 3 or 4 Crucible of Worlds so you can get your lands back. and for your land base you should run 4x Mishra's Factory
4x Wasteland only if your opponent are running alot of nonbasic lands if not replace with swamps and finally 3 or 4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and the rest should be swamps total you should have about 22 lands.

i just have one serious question about 1 card, do you ever get nevinnyral`s disk to go off before your apponent bashes it. just my humble opinion, but i`d replace with damnation.

i know that nevinnyral`s disk is way broader a destruction card, but everytime i ran it, it was gone before i could turn on it`s awsome power. maybe just my dumb luck.

anyway, i like your changes, very tight and solid.

in truth it's actually very rare that it goes BOOM! I would rather play damnation but I need something to destroy artifacts and enchantments and this is the only card that I know of that black decks can play for that.

Took out the disk for Underworld Dreams Buy

Thanks for rating my From the Dead deck. Your suggestion has been taken into concideration and i have updated with shatter for right now until i can figure out what else to take out.

This deck is very solid and i like the interaction with jinxed idol and bloodchief accention as well as ankh of mishra. very cool combos. Your deck has a lot of synergy and looks really fun to play.

great defensive deck with the LD and discard. I would add some draw with Phyrexian Arena... Besides that looks great. Thanks for the rate

Nice Pox deck. My only suggestion might be to include some non-Pox creature removal. Both Pox Buy and Smallpox Buy are good at what they do, but sometimes you can't afford to sacrifice the land or lose the life.

Something like Innocent Blood Buy might work well here.
