    Hi,

    I've been working on this casual deck and could use some
    input. The idea is to abuse Horn of Greed. The name 31
    came from the fact that there are only 31 none land cards
    in the deck.


    31 ....or the Land Deck
    4 Howling Mine
    4 Horn of Greed
    1 Sol Ring
    1 Black Vice

    3 Drain Life
    1 Demonic Tutor

    4 Storm Seeker
    4 Sylvan Library
    4 Summer's Bloom
    1 Regrowth
    1 Fastbond
    1 Abundance

    2 Cadarveous Bloom

    14 Forest
    4 Swamp
    4 Bayou
    4 Quicksand
    3 Gemstone Mine

    Fastbond/Horn of Greed is some serious card drawing power.
    The deck also has the Sylvan/Abundance combo built into it.
    The Drains are in the deck to get back some of the damage
    taken from Fastbond. I believe the current Oracle wording
    allows the Horn to trigger each time I play a land but I
    have to take a lot of damage because of it. The Bloom fuels
    the Drains.

    All comments and suggestions are welcome.
    Thanx,
    Caveman

    this is off topic, but if you DO have those bayou's what do you want for them?

  4. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Late game idea:

    Sunder + Seismic Assault.
    Ouch.
  5. Captain Caveman New Member

    Spaceman Spiff,

    I do have the duals but I want to hang on to them. It took
    me quite awhile to get all of them. I traded a lot of
    stuff to get them. Sorry.


    Istanbul,

    Seismic/Sunder sounds kind of interesting. Got a decklist?


    Dune,

    WoW, I like all of those Land decks. I guess my favorites
    would have to be Uncounterable Creature's #1, Land Assault
    and Zvi's TurboLand deck.

    Speaking of Land assault, here's my Green/Red version.


    31 ....or the Land Deck too
    4 Howling Mine
    4 Horn of Greed
    1 Sol Ring
    1 Black Vice

    4 Blastoderm
    4 Storm Seeker

    4 Sylvan Library
    4 Summer's Bloom
    1 Fastbond
    1 Abundance
    1 Creeping Mold

    2 Stormbind

    12 Forest
    6 Mountain
    4 Taiga
    4 Quicksand
    3 Gemstone Mine

    BtW, thanks for those decklist. I'll but them on file and
    try to build them when I get a chance. I like the idea
    of using Storage Matrix in this kind of deck.

    Dude, I have a huge 162 page Deck List document with tons of decklists. Do you want me to email it to you?
  7. Captain Caveman New Member

    Dune,

    That would be great. I thought you had several on file.
    I remember you posting several Conspiracy decks a while
    ago. I'd like to see them again as well as the rest of
    what you have.

    pittman@blueriver.net
    Please put "Kirsin's Decks" in the subject line or
    something of that nature.

    Thanx,
    Caveman
