I Made Them Sacrifice Every Permanent, Every Turn | Brewer's Kitchen


Well, hello there! Brewer’s Kitchen here and today we’re gonna play the most absurd deck we’ve ever played in this series. I know the bar is pretty high at this point, but just from a level of unfairness, this one takes the cake.

The Gameplan

With Modern Horizons 3 hitting Arena, the powerlevel of the Timeless and other formats skyrocketed overnight. And while the Evoke Elementals, Nadu, and other powerful cards are shaking up the metas, I didn’t expect my first video with the new set revolving around an uncommon.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

Breaker of Creation might look over costed and clunky, but what if I told you that there is a way to cheat it onto the battlefield as early as turn one?
Timeless has some of the cheapest reanimation spells in Reanimate and Persist.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Combined with cheap discard like Faithless Looting and, technically Gamble and Thoughtseize targeting ourselves, we can cheat anything we want onto the battlefield criminally early in the game. While the deck plays other backup targets like Serra's Emissary and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, it turns out that the Breaker is just the most brutal thing to face in the early game. (In the video, I also play Agent of Treachery but I didn’t reanimate it a single time so I cut it from the final decklist)

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Hexproof from all colors means that most removal can’t target it. And even if the opponent plays enough early creatures to trade with it, the Annihilator 2 trigger is usually enough to blow up the rest of their board. Sure, a creature with Deathtouch or an Edict effect will do it, but you can’t beat them all.
While all of this is already pretty sweet, the coolest part about this deck is the interaction of Bitter Reunion and Breaker of Creation. Not only does the Reunion let us discard our reanimation targets, it also grants haste to swing in to get the Annihilator trigger immediately.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Check out the video to see the deck in action. The hands with Dark Ritual are some of the gnarliest play patters I’ve ever seen on Arena.


Wrap up

This deck is very consistent in what is does. I’d advise playing it in best of one since it folds to graveyard interaction like Leyline of the Void. Funnily enough, the only deck that’s really good against it is the menace of the format itself. Not only will the Grief scam pick apart our gameplan in hand, they also play Reanimate themselves, which can steal our big creatures from our graveyard. But then again, there’s a reason why Rakdos Scam is such a successful strategy in all the formats it’s legal in.
