Breaking Storage Matrix
By Kirsin Koch
On the message boards, I suggested that people give me some card ideas to break. These are decklists I came up with for Storage Matrix that I have in my archives that I've come up with on my own. The casual decks I have here will win, but not exactly with overkill speed. These may have some cards that are hard to get ahold of. For that, I apologize. Hopefully you can make some changes that will work.

The first deck here is one I came up with on the Dojo BB a long time ago, but it's still a good idea. You have to try this if you have the cards. Fast Bond is awesome in any of these decks and if you can, and are allowed by your friends, put in 4!

“Land Assault”
Colors: White/Red/Green
Created by: Kirsin Koch
Description/Theme: Creature/land beatdown with direct damage and card drawing
Source: Personal

White:
4 Enlightened Tutor

Red:
2 Land's Edge

Green:
2 Burgeoning
2 Clear the Land
4 Exploration
1 Fastbond (or another Burgeoning)
3 Summer Bloom

Artifacts:
4 Horn of Greed
3 Storage Matrix
1 Storm Cauldron

Lands:
4 Faerie Conclave
4 Forbidding Watchtower
4 Ghitu Encampment
3 Mogg Hollows
4 Reflecting Pool
4 Savannah
4 Tiaga
4 Treetop Village
3 Vec Township

Sideboard:
2 Abundance
2 Defense Grid
4 Disenchant
3 Limited Resources
4 Wrath of God

Basically draw lots of cards after putting out tons of man-lands and the Horns of Greed and then pitch land cards to Land's Edge for more direct damage. Under the card's original wording, Storage Matrix untapped the "depletion" lands, but for some reason, the DCI says the wording doesn't work that way anymore, but since all your creatures are lands, Storage Matrix does make it fun for your opponent to try to choose what to untap each round while it never affects you at all. The Storm Cauldron also allows you to bounce all your lands to your hand and pitch them to Land's Edge.


“Uncounterable Creatures (#2)”
Colors: White/Green
Created by: Kirsin Koch
Description/Theme: Get your creature/lands into play as quickly as possible and use the Storage Matrix to lock your opponent down to one type of permanent while it doesn’t affect you
Source: Personal

White:
4 Enlightened Tutor
2 Sacred Ground

Green:
2 Burgeoning
2 Clear the Land
4 Exploration
1 Fastbond
2 Summer Bloom

Artifacts:
4 Horn of Greed
4 Storage Matrix
3 Well of Knowledge

Lands:
4 Faerie Conclave
4 Forbidding Watchtower
4 Ghitu Encampment
4 Reflecting Pool
4 Spawning Pool
4 Savannah
4 Treetop Village
4 Vec Township

Sideboard:
2 Abundance
2 Defense Grid
4 Disenchant
3 Limited Resource
4 Wrath of God


Same idea as above, but with way more card drawing. This one isn't as focused on multiple ways to win as it is to having card-drawing and massive creature beatdown.
