Reap Lace - The deck I was going to play in the ToC, but couldn't get Ready.

Beyond Dominia: The Type One Magic Mill: Archived threads of the Beyond Dominia Type I Mill: Reap Lace - The deck I was going to play in the ToC, but couldn't get Ready.

1 Black Lotus
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Jet
1 Mox Pearl
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Sol Ring


3 Deathlace
1 Demonic Tutor
1 Vampiric Tutor


1 Ancestral Recall
2 Fact or Fiction
2 Intuition
4 Mana Drain
1 Mystical Tutor
4 Prismatic Lace
1 Stroke of Genius
1 Time Walk
1 Timetwister


4 Reap
1 Regrowth


1 Enlightened Tutor
1 Moat
3 Orim's Chant
2 Seal of Cleansing


4 City of Brass
1 Library of Alexandria
1 Strip Mine
4 Tropical Island
4 Tundra
4 Underground Sea
2 Wasteland


2 Circle of Protection: Red
2 City of Solitude
4 Duress
1 Ivory Mask
1 Seal of Cleansing
2 Tormod's Crypt
2 Touch of Darkness

Basically, this deck turns its opponents permanents black, and uses Reap to reuse Tutors, Laces, and Orim's Chants until it gets a Time Walk, never allowing its to get another turn, or a Black Lotus, generating infinite mana for a Stroke of Genious, or a lot of Recurred Ancestral Recalls. It doesn't usually have trouble with Aggro decks, because of the Kicker on the Chants, but BBS and Keeper are still a problem.

I like this deck a lot. Help me out.

is shifting sky something that would fit in here?

By jimbo on Sunday, July 01, 2001 - 04:31 am:

Yeah this begs to be made into a shifting skies deck.

And since youre splashing blue, throw in some chameleon spirits from MM.

And why not a few greater realms since every threat on the board will be black and most of the direct damage will be red. Maybe a few paladins en-kor would be annying too.

Cut out the parts that are not a part of the combo or furthering the combo, save Balance as an emergency card. Duress is better than Chant, and you can drop white entirely save for a Disenchant and Balance.

The one thing to be noted about Chants though, Az, is it gives him 1 more kill card (Ancestral Recall). The question is how much he really needs the extra kill. And since you've already got Green, you could cut most of the White and then run Duress and a single City of Solitude (if you really want the option of being able to Ancestral them out). Going along with Az's idea would give you room (as you are cutting Mana Drains and Orim's Chants for room).


By Azhrei (Azhrei) on Monday, July 02, 2001 - 09:08 am:

With a Reap engine going though, you really kinda CAN Ancestral without fear. Once you get a million green mana, you can then make a million blue. Reap 4 FoW into your hand and then just sit back and deck them. If they try anything, hard cast a FoW and then Reap it back.

Azhrei, the chant is better than Duress in here though. Like I said, it stops attackers, read Morphling, which Duress does not. And if my Stroke gets removed, Ancestral will be my rout to victory, and it's much easier to do that with Chant than Duress. And the problem with cutting Mana Drains for FoW is that there is a pretty good amount of time when the combo is only half there, and it is much easier to cast Mana Drain than FoW.

meh, Shifting Skies is a possibility, but its no good vs BBS. And it's much more tempting to disenchant one of my permanents than gt rid of 4-6 of their own, which is why the laces get the nod, I think.

I thank you all for your input, but none of these help where it needs it. Which is against Control. Where I play, there's a bunch of aggro, but I can handle them easily. My only competition comes from a BBS deck and another Keeper (yes, I play Keeper IRL). Any Help there would be great.
