MTG Brewer: Pox + Helm of Obedience/ Leyline of the Void Combo Deck

My brother has been collecting the cards for a Legacy Pox deck for awhile now. I just acquired another Helm of Obedience. A little light bulb went off in my head and an hour later I had this.

Pox with the Helm/ Leyline Combo:
4 Leyline of the Void
3 Helm of Obedience
1 Phyrexian Totem
1 Nether Spirit

4 Hymn to Tourach
2 Inquisition of Kozilek
4 Smallpox
2 Pox
4 Innocent Blood
1 Diabolic Edict
2 Liliana of the Veil
4 Rain of Tears
4 Dark Ritual

21 Swamps
2 Wasteland
1 Blinkmoth Nexus

Leyline Helm Pox

This is a good list to play around with and test. Obviously I rather have 4 Sinkholes and 2 more Wastelands rather than the turn or two slower Rain of Tears. Also I may have to brainstorm other Plan B’s to win. Mishra’s Factory is definitely an option.

Anyways if you not familiar with the Pox deck, it is a brutal control deck that attacks the hand, the land and the creatures on board. It is a very grindy deck that usually end up with both players top decking but usually you are slightly ahead out board with Nether Spirit/ Bloodghast and manlands. As you can imagine it takes a long time to win. So I like the addition of the oops I win combo in the deck. If you are not familiar with the Helm + Leyline combo, the Helm of Obedience for 1 can remove your opponent’s whole deck from the game because Helm of Obedience does not see either a creature in the graveyard or X cards put in the graveyard with a Leyline of Void in play (also works with Rest in Peace).

In the first game of testing I won first turn with the hand of Leyline of the Void, a Helm of Obedience, 2 Dark Ritual and a Swamp. Not a bad start I say.

  1. I’m curious to hear what became of this deck? has it changed over time? What kind of sideboard did you develop for it?
