How it Works

This is my secondary 1v1 deck, a classic version of bounce/discard. It's less powerful than my Manapulse deck, but still mean enough to slay most foes!

It is capable of turn three kills.

The fast-kill works off of Dark Ritual Buying a Megrim Buys into play on turn one, then dropping Urza's Guilt Buy on the following two turns w/ more Dark Ritual Buys. One can also drop three Megrim Buys on the first two turns and finish the game with a single Urza's Guilt Buy on the third turn, but the aforementioned method is much more likely to happen.

The deck functions by playing an early Megrim Buy and forcing them to discard via Cephalid Broker Buy and Cephalid Looter Buy. This deck also packs a lot of bounce-power through Recoil Buy and Boomerang Buy in conjunction with Warped Devotion Buy.

This deck is, by far, my favorite deck to play. It's so much fun!
