Hogaak Vine Deck

Hi, guys and girls, this is the first card-deck I will address. They call this deck Hogaak Vine deck or the Hogaak Bridge deck. The deck is crazy and could go off on turn two or three quite a lot of the times.  I know they banned Bridge from Below, so is the deck still workable? That is the question, and what do we replace the Bridge from Below with to make this deck still work?

Here is the decklist, and I have changed it to see if this list works.  I don’t have MTG Online, but I have proxied the deck and seen how it runs.

Decklist

4 Overgrown Tomb

4 Blood Crypt

4 Verdant Catacombs

4 Rootbound Crag

1 Mountain

3 Swamp

4 Bloodghast

4 Carrion Feeder

4 Gravecrawler

3 Insolent Neonate

4 Stitcher’s Supplier

4 Vengevine

4 Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis

4 Faithless Looting

3 Burning Inquiry

4 Altar of Dementia

2 Leyline of the Void 

Sideboard 

2 Abrupt Decay

3 Assassin’s Trophy

2 Ancient Grudge

2 Leyline of the Void

2 Plague Engineer

2 Grafdigger’s Cage

2 Pithing Needle

  So, the object of this deck is to put as many cards in the graveyard without milling yourself out.  And getting things like Bloodghast and Gravecrawler back out on to the battlefield to play a Gravecrawler and put Vengevine out without casting it and do all this on turn two or three if you can. 

The other way this deck works is by milling out your opponent with the Altar of Dementia.  And that works with a lot of sacking to Carrion Feeder to make him big and if he is like a 10/10 that will be one big mill not as good as if Bridge from Below was, but it is still good to do some milling of your opponent’s stuff.

 I think this deck is still good, but not great like it was.  I like the way they created this deck, and it was a great deck that is too good for modern, sadly. But this is all people would play in Pro Tutor, and that is no fun at all to do.  It was like Jace, the Mind Sculptor when it was out there was no deck that didn’t splash blue for that card when he came out.

Well, this is all I have for this deck for now.  Thanks, and would love to hear your comments on this deck.
