    Looking to smash Fires, Stompy, Rebels, and Skies, while finding a way to beat U/W or U control after SB.

    Here's my Stompy just for reference

    Thinking of going to an all-Elf/Coat of Arms build. Help please?

    I found RW control just loses really hard to Fires, can`t handle fat hasty monsters.

    Personally I like the Elf decks, I had one pre-Coat. Not tried it since Coat.

    Oh, like this?

    4 Counterspell
    4 Prohibit
    1 Foil
    3 Thwart
    1 Exclude
    4 Accumulated Knowledge
    4 Fact or Fiction
    4 Wash Out
    3 Boomerang
    4 Air Elemental
    4 Wall of Ice
    24 Island

    Yeah, I hear that deck is pretty good for a RW control deck.

    If I had to play RW control, that`s the listing I`d use.

    :D

    In all seriousness the list of cards the RW deck cannot deal with very effectively is very long. Probably RW control is better against Rebels than UW control, but it`s far far worse against the Blastoderms, Shivan Wurms, Chimeric Idols, and Saproling Bursts in Fires. I always liked RW control, me and Justice both thought it was great back in the day. But that was back in the day, and it`s great strength (smashing weenie decks like there was no tomorrow) is no longer very useful. Plus it`s lost Outpost, StP, and Hammer...

    Dpn't wprry 'bout it, I made a good white/red deck that beats Fires... but for it to be really good I think we should wait until Apocalypse comes out. I'll post my decklist later.
