Let's Flip Coins! Deck List

Post by m14 » Wed May 08, 2013 9:08 pm

Hey all!
I threw this deck together after seeing how Volatile Rig actually works. I felt compelled to make a deck around him, and this is what turned out:

Lands:
14x Swamps (11 foil!)
10x Plains (all foil!)

Creatures:
4x Tavern Swindler
4x Vizkopa Guildmage
4x Cartel Aristocrat
4x Volatile Rig
4x Creepy Doll

Instant & Sorceries
4x Disentomb
4x Ghoulcaller's Chant
4x Sign in Blood
4x Cremate


There's the list. It comes in at 60 cards. For those that care about value, the whole greatness of this is somewhere in the ballpark of being worth $6.65. I love playing the deck, but it needs a name. So that's where you come in! Give any name suggestions and/or comments on the deck. It's not meant to be super competitive, I realize that.

I wanna keep it standard, and plus if I wanted to play a wargame, I would. I'm dropping Duress for Creepy Doll. It's so much funnier.

So you want us to... coin a term? ;)

What about something like Rigged Coins? Rigged Flips? Rigged Swindles? I dunno, taking shots in the dark here. I'll get back to you if I can think of anything better...

Flipping Rigged?

Current idea is Tavern Rig, though Flipping Rigged is quite good.

How about fitting in the infinite life loss/gain combo with the guildmage. This makes the coin flip bear useful.

I think Volatile Rig is probably strong enough to fit into an aggro/tempo build. Maybe some aggressive build using the coin flipping planeswalker, on the surface the complement each other well.

Problem with Ral is that he flips coins on the off chance he lives long enough to do it. Think, it takes him 3 turns before he flips coins. He shows up and does +1, turn 2 he goes to 6, turn 3 to 7, and turn 4 pops to flip. All of that is in a vacuum. In reality he is either killed or continually reduced in loyalty so he can't flip.

The rig doesn't fit into an aggro deck due to his CMC 4 and that if things go wrong he kills everything of yours and your opponents. I view the risk as being too big unless you have Frontline Medic, or Boros Charm to prevent your stuff from dying.

I won't be looking into picking up a few Exquisite Bloods for this deck (but for EDH I will) due to casting it I'm giving up a potential game winning flip. It's only one mana short of costing the same as 2 of Vizkopa's second ability, and the same cost as Creepy Doll. I'd much rather have the Doll in my hand than the enchantment.

If you guys have any other comments or any sort of discussion let it be!
