    Re: Devil's Cake

    I think it's actually a synergy issue more than a playstyle issue. Blood Moon is risky in your own manabase (shuts off white and black), but you only run it as a 1-of so you don't have to play it in...

    Re: Devil's Cake

    Any card with CMC <=5 (without using any lands). Your Entomb scenario needs 1 land to activate Wishclaw, so with that it would be CMC 6. Like I said, I think you're underrating how good plan A is.

    I can't tell if this is sarcasm, given Sundering Titan is already in the deck. Destroying a few lands seems good.
