Plenty of Temples

Last week, I showed off Ali Aintrazi's Five-ColorAxebane Guardian. Today, I have a similar deck, although King Feeble's version is a more modest four-color deck featuring cheaper spells instead of Axebane Guardians and bigger spells.

This deck takes a lot of what makes Mono-Black Devotion so powerful, like Thoughtseize, Underworld Connections, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and adds Sylvan Caryatid for acceleration, early blocking, and mana fixing. King Feeble also has Abrupt Decay and Detention Sphere to deal with nonland permanents, which is a big step from Mono-Black, which can't remove an Underworld Connections, Thassa, or Bident of Thassa once they are in play.

Obzedat, Ghost Council is the finisher of choice, instead of the sometimes unreliable Desecration Demon. The inclusion of Obzedat makes Whip of Erebos a fantastic choice

My first thought on the mana base was, "Wow! Sixteen Temples? That's going to go a long way toward fixing its draw steps." At closer inspection, I realized that Temple Garden doesn't actually scry. Still, twelve Temples is pretty impressive, and I imagine it does wonders for the consistency.
