Season 14, Episode 27: Brew Session (Mausoleum Secrets) ft. Soren Wellman
How far would you go for an instant speed Demonic Tutor? Compared to the slowness of Profane Tutor, a two mana instant is way above rate. But Mausoleum Secrets offers precisely this bargain. It can only fetch black cards, with mana value tied to your graveyard. But the power of Secrets has already yielded some spectacular 5-0s in black-based toolbox strategies.
Today on Faithless Brewing, Soren Wellman aka 1stTurnNegator joins Morde to unlock the secrets of the mausoleum and share his passion for brewing toolbox style control and tempo decks. Soren has a long history of success at the intersection of control decks and combo finishes: from Izzet Through the Breach, to Blue Moon, to Izzet Murktide, Reanimator and more. He also isn’t afraid to go deep into the tank and hone some truly impressive brews. Soren has been eyeing Mauseoleum Secrets for a while now, and is likely foremost expert on the card. What are the constraints of Mauseleum Secrets, and what new strategies can it unlock in Modern? We’re heading deep into the undergrowth today to find out.
