MTG – Modern Deck – Waste Not Control [With a not yet printed card: Waste Not]

Hello Nurglings!

Some time ago we were introduced to a completely new and not yet released card that we (as in the Magic community) was able to ”help out” in the design with! We were able to vote constantly on what we wanted the card to be, what kind of effect it should have, the color, the artwork and so on. The result was a card named: Waste Not. And right now, right here I will show you one of the most awesome cards interactions with it.

First let’s look at the card itself.

MTG - You make the card - Waste Not

So yea, the cards seems fine. At a very low cost you get some value when your opponent it discarding something, but if you don’t have anything to do with the mana or… you know the 2/2 zombie isn’t really doing much for you or… well, drawing cards seems really good.

Let me tell you this, there is a card that in combination with Waste Not creates a situation where you’re opponent wont have any cards left. Yes, it’s true.


MTG - Match made in heaven

So you pay one single mana to sacrifice one of your creatures, you look at your opponents hand and you can make him discard ANY card. ANY card. Which means that as long as your opponent have a good mix in his hand you can empty it… “easily”. It needs some set up but hell I love combos that needs set up.

And here is the deck to set it up!

MTG Deck - Waste Not Control

Creatures: 12
4x Bloodghast
4x Deathrite Shaman
4x Geralf’s Messenger

Other Spells: 23
4x Waste Not
4x Lingering Souls
3x Mind Slash
3x Thoughtsieze
3x Path To Exile
2x Maelstrom Pulse
2x Liliana of the Veil
1x Sorin Lord of Inistrad
1x Abrupt Decay

Lands: 25
4x Swamp
4x Verdant Catacombs
4x Marshflats
2x Misty Rainforest
2x Godless Shrine
2x Overgrown Tomb
2x Temple Garden
2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
1x Plains
1x Springjack Pasture
1x Murmuring Bosk

Sacrifice some Lingering Souls tokens, or Bloodghasts, or Geralf’s Messenger and we have a machine ready to give you plenty of value with Waste Not on the field. The best thing, with several of this sweet enchantment on the field… you get several triggers. *Drool *

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

  1. First off mono black, will give you much more consistency. The fetchlands will just waste time
    Deathrite Shaman is now banned in Modern
    Nykthos seems foolish in a deck like this

    • The deck was created before the DS ban (actually a long time ago now). But go ahead and try the deck anyway you want. 🙂 Don’t believe Rack and Shrieking is the way to go tho. 😮
