Post Deck challenge: Skaabs and what they are good for

Rules:

1. Must have four Skaab Ruinator in the deck
2. Must have atleast two Sun Titan in the deck
3. Must have cards that generate mana
4. Must not have cards that generate mana (you're not allowed to cast blue spells)


So i guess you know how this deck is supposed to work when you look at the rules . Basically use Sun Titan to bring Skaab Ruinator from the graveyard to the battlefield!

I've been thinking about this combo for a while, and i want to see what you can come up with!

Have fun!

I see what you're trying to do, but the no blue mana restriction is not nice.
Within your restrictions, I'd probably make a control deck with Sheoldred, Whispering One and Unburial Rites for additional grave to play affects, black and white kill or exile spells for creature control and then some discard cards that could be turned on yourself to get any drawn Skaab Ruinator (or any other creatures) into your graveyard. In other words, I'd build it similarly to my GWU(B) Reanimation deck deck

having 4 cards that are unusable unless you can play a 6cost card first(of which you only have two) isn't very productive.

I am actually quite happy with the combos that arose from this deck. Let me know what ya think.

Oh and its standard to boot.
