This week's deck is an alternative option to theVillage Rites decks that have been popping up lately. This decks disrupts your opponent with Thoughtseize and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger while filling your graveyard with goodies.

Alongside Kroxa, you are looking for Archfiend's Vessel and Scrapheap Scrounger to easily reanimate some serious pressure. Lastly, everyone's favorite companion Lurrus of the Dream-Den is stellar in this deck, enabling a bunch of the previously mentioned cards as well as Stitcher's Supplier to keep the engine going.
