Deck of the Week: Nauseam Assault

Here's a pretty peculiar but interesting deck that I'll feature as the deck for the week. The list is from the latest Standard Trial Tournament at and was piloted by el_cuervito.

In my understanding of the deck, its main objective is to get Seismic Assault online as early as turn 3 and play Ad Nauseam at turn four, getting most of the lands in the deck and shoot the opponent to death. This can be made through the help of the cards Devoted Druid, Swans of Bryn Argoll and Idyllic Tutor. The sideboard is probably for permissions decks (Vexing Shushers and Guttural Responses) and aggro (Firespouts and Angelsong) decks. Here is the list below:

Main Deck
4 Reflecting Pool
4 Vivid Grove
4 Vivid Creek
4 Crumbling Necropolis
4 Sulfurous Springs
4 Graven Cairns
4 Quicksand
4 Vivid Crag
4 Vivid Marsh
2 Twilight Mire
2 Rugged Prairie
1 Llanowar Wastes
2 Karplusan Forest

3 Swans of Bryn Argoll
4 Devoted Druid
4 Ad Nauseam
4 Seismic Assault
1 Idyllic Tutor
1 Oblivion Ring

3 Guttural Response
4 Vexing Shusher
4 Firespout
4 Angelsong
