Marit Lages in Overextended

For Worldwide Overextended Day, I was (as my husband helpfully relayed to twitter) definitely going to be making some Marit Lages. I’d played a UB Hexmage Depths list at Providence (in Legacy), but without Force of Will and Daze, I wanted a more resilient plan in the deck as well. Here’s what I ran-

4 Dark Depths
1 Flooded Strand
1 Godless Shrine
1 Hallowed Fountain
1 Island
2 Marsh Flats
1 Plains
3 Polluted Delta
2 River of Tears
1 Sunken Ruins
1 Swamp
3 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
2 Watery Grave

4 Dark Confidant
4 Vampire Hexmage
4 Stoneforge Mystic

1 Batterskull
1 Bitterblossom
2 Dismember
3 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
4 Mental Misstep
3 Muddle the Mixture
3 Smother
1 Spell Pierce
1 Sword of Fire and Ice
4 Thoughtseize
1 Umezawa’s Jitte


1 Bribery
1 Dismember
2 Gatekeeper of Malakir
4 Hurkyl’s Recall
1 Manriki-Gusari
2 Phyrexian Revoker
1 Sword of Body and Mind
1 Sword of Light and Shadow
2 Teferi’s Response

Obviously no Recalls ever, but I did get to Bribery an Emrakul which is more or less all I wanted. I had a hard time figuring out the last few spots in my decks, and if I hadn’t seen a bunch of creature decks before the event I might have chosen differently.

I wanted to try to a Bitterblossom in this deck, but after taking 6 or so damage from my own cards every game, I’m not so sure.

Teferi’s Response was only relevant in one matchup, and I didn’t cast it, but I had to try…
