[Decklist] You Can't Lose v1.1

I changed my mind. I was trying to do too much at once and was stuck between a weird type of a Reanimator Deck and a Welder Deck. I think for this to work you have to pick one or the other and I think I'm going to stick with the welders.

I was also forcing the "You lose the game" cards when I included Phage the Untouchable and Slaughter Pact. The only essential cards for the deck are Pact of Negation and the Final Fortune type cards. Everything else can go. (This also means I can cut it down to two colors.)

[Decklist] You Can't Lose v1.1

4 Platinum Angel
4 Goblin Welder
1 Pentavus

4 Pact of Negation
2 Confiscate

Card Drawing
1 Final Fortune
1 Last Chance
1 Warrior's Oath
4 Careful Study
4 Thoughtcast
1 Wheel of Fortune
1 Tinker
1 Memory Jar

1 Lich's Mirror
4 Copy Artifact

4 Gilded Lotus
2 Voltaic Key
4 Chrome Mox
1 Mana Crypt
1 Sol Ring
1 Mana Vault
1 Grim Monolith
4 Volcanic Island
4 Seat of the Synod
3 Great Furnace
1 Tolarian Academy

This version is straight up artifacts. It also gives the deck an alternate win condition with the Goblin Welder + Pentavus combo. Gilded Lotus for extra mana acceleration (and a decent welding target).

Still... something feels wrong. Like there isn't enough control + it won't be fast enough. I might add some Fire / Ice. (They would also be good imprint targets.)


  1. Oh, my boyfriend's gonna looove this site. Lol.
