    Default [MTG-Casual] Extort

    This is based on something I couldn't do in Standard -- 0-cost spells combined with extort.

    LANDS
    4x Fetid Heath
    8x Plains
    8x Swamp

    EXTORT SOURCES
    4x Basilica Screecher
    4x Kingpin's Pet
    4x Syndic of Tithes
    4x Thrull Parasite

    0-COST SPELLS
    4x Gitaxian Probe
    4x Gut Shot
    4x Memnite
    4x Ornithopter
    4x Phyrexian Walker
    4x Surgical Extraction

    The strategy here is very simple and incredibly one-track (and kind of fragile as a result); drop sources of extort, then start dumping out the 0-cost spells and extorting them.

    Pretty simple, but might stand some adjustments?

    You realize that you get half-shutdown by Angel of Jubilation, right? It stops you from paying Phyrexian Mana...and then your spells are useless.

    That is true. I didn't even think of that at all.

    There's also enough 0-cost artifacts that I could run in place of those, actually, which means that I could probably rebuild this to get around that. Gitaxian Probe is the biggest loss out of the Phyrexian spells, though, so I could redo that fairly easily.

    yeah, angel of jubilation sure is tearing up metas everywhere.

    i would probably not play basilica screecher, and go for blind obedience instead, since it slows down the game a touch for you. basilica guards might also be good over kingpin's pet for the same reason.

    Apparently it's at about $1.50 at its cheapest on TCGPlayer, but that might just be because Angel collectors.

    I'd really like to hope that I could just generally get this going as fast as possible, so I don't know how much control is preferred for this. However, I do like subbing out the Pets for Blind Obedience, because it's faster, but that's just me.
