MTG – Standard Deck – Pool Control

Hello Nurglings!

Time for another sweet deck and idea! Disclaimer though: the deck has been tested, and even if it was just a few duels, it felt clunky and needs to change or just to be used at a casual level. And I don’t mind casual gaming, but I really prefer to maximize my game.


So what is Pool Control about? Well first of all you use one of the most confusing cards in the freaking game: Knowledge Pool. This in combination with a certain new card: Curse of Exhaustion, which makes for fun situations. No actually it creates a situation where your opponent may only use what they already have on the battlefield, abilities, and cards not played from the hand.


When the white Curse is attached to your opponent, they may only play one spell each turn, Knowledge Pool takes the first spell played each turn and puts it under Knowledge Pool, then you MAY play a second spell from Knowledge Pool for free. But, your opponent never gets the chance to play this second spell because they are affected by the Curse.

The idea is simple, but I’m not sure yet how to maximize the list, so I will just show you the one that I’ve been trying out.

Creatures: 10

4x Solemn Simulacrum
3x Grand Architect
3x Snapcaster Mage

Spell: 23
4x Ponder
4x Glitaxian Probe
4x Mana Leak
4x Dissipate
3x Day Of Judgment
3x Curse Of Exhaustion
1x Curse Of The Bloody Tome

Artifact: 7
3x Knowledge Pool
4x Sphere Of The Sun

Land: 20
4x Evolving Wilds
4x Glacial Fortress
3x Seachrome Coast
2x Moorland Haunt
5x Island
2x Plains
1x Ghost Quarter

Until next time, take care Nurglings.
Cya soon!
