Death & Taxes is a resource denial Aether Vial deck. It attacks the mana-base of the opponent through Rishadan Port, Wasteland and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and disrupts the opponent's game plan with a variety of creatures like Phyrexian Revoker and Mother of Runes. The win condition is usually beating soft-locked opponents down with small creatures equipped by Stoneforge Mystic.
