    Here's a list of blue decks that I have built or plan to build. Tell me what you think.

    Annoyingly Blue

    Creatures
    4 Cloud of Faeries
    4 Sneaky Homunculus
    3 Spiketail Hatchling
    2 Spiketail Drakes
    3 Waterfront Bouncer
    Spells
    4 Curfew
    4 Fatigue
    4 Memory Lapse
    3 Private Research
    2 Rewind
    4 Rhystic Study
    3 Telepathy
    3 Unsummon
    2 Zephid's Embrace
    Land
    20 Island

    I just made this deck with a bunch of annoying blue cards. I was also a test to see if a could build a good deck out of under-used cards.

    Unblockable Blue

    Creatures
    2 Bouncing Beebles
    3 Metathran Elite
    4 Metathran Soldier
    4 Sneaky Homunculus
    2 Tidal Kraken
    Spells
    4 Accumulated Knowledge
    3 Boomerang
    3 Coastal Piracy
    4 Counterspell
    3 Diplomatic Immunity
    2 Miscalculation
    4 Seal of Removal
    4 Sigil of Sleep
    3 Zephid's Embrace
    Land
    18 Island
    2 Tower of the Magistrate

    I might take this deck to a tourney someday. The point is to use your unblockable creatures to attack your opponent and then bounce his creatures (Sigil of Sleep) and draw cards (Coastal Piracy). The Zephid's Embrace is primarly for the Sneaky Homunculus.

    Control Blue

    Artifacts
    4 Powder Keg
    Creatures
    3 Morphling
    2 Temporal Adept
    3 Thieving Magpie
    Spells
    4 Accumulated Knowledge
    3 Boomerang
    2 Confiscate
    4 Counterspell
    2 Misdirection
    3 Rewind
    2 Rhystic Study
    2 Seal of Removal
    2 Trade Routes
    3 Treachery
    Lands
    3 Faerie Conclave
    22 Island
    1 Rishadan Port

    This deck is the one I'm planning on taking to the T2 tourney this coming Saturday.

    Feedback is always nice. Thanks!

    I understand your resentment at my Rare Control Blue deck. I'm really proud of it, and I wish you wouldn't call it a net-deck. It's not. I don't run Masticores or Grim Monoliths, like I should. I instead I run the 4 Kegs and alot of bounce. If you want to see a rare deck check this out.

    Artifacts
    4 Grim Monolith
    4 Voltaic Key

    Artifact Creatures
    3 Phyrexian Colossus
    3 Ticking Gnomes
    2 Wall of Junk

    Black Spells
    4 Dark Ritual
    2 Rhystic Tutors
    4 Vampiric Tutor

    Blue Spells
    4 Counterspell
    3 Gush
    4 Tinker
    3 Unsummon

    Land
    4 City of Brass
    7 Island
    3 Rhystic Cave
    4 Thran Quarry
    2 Tower of the Magistrate
    4 Underground River

    I went 3-2 with this deck at a T2 tourney. I was really scaring people when I was hard casting 2nd and 3rd turn Phyrexian Colossus with extra mana for counters

    Here's my blue deck. I call it "Mental Blue"

    Blue Spells:
    3x Telekinesis
    3x Telepathy
    3x Impulse
    4x Vision Charm
    4x Aracen Denile
    3x Mana Leak

    Green Spells
    4x Clear the Land


    White Spells
    4x Wrath of God
    4x Cessation
    1x Disenchant

    Artifacts
    2x Scrying Glass

    Lands
    4x City of Brass
    4x Plains
    2x Forest
    15x Island

    This deck is so fun to play.
    I have played it and won against a lot of other decks.
    I think it's clear how it wins.
  5. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Am I dumb? (Don't friggin answer!)

    I don't see a kill method there. You?
  6. DÛke Memento Mori

    4 Clear the Land and the 4 Vision Charms! :)
    Can you believe it? Yes, those are the kill methods.
    Vision Charms remove 4 from the top of opponent's deck from the game, and the Clear the Land subtracts each deck by 5.
    The Arcane Denile just help that. If they choose to draw 1 or 2 cards, than they are just helping me win, if they don't, than I just cast a cheaper Counter Spell.

    Yes, it may seem odd at the beggining, but this deck have won; the Clear the Land is a really good card, not to get mana, but to remove the top 5 cards of each deck, and maybe to get some extra mana sources. I have decked opponents so well.

    The deck has a lot of stall mechanism installed in it, cards like Telekinesis, Cessation, and Wrath of God are really a one big engine of destruction...

    I have included only 1 Disenchant just incase I need it against annoying stuff, and it should be easy to find with 3 Impulse and 2 Scrying Glass. The Telepathy is there just for fun, but I could remove it and add something more useful, such as Denying Wind. Telepathy also helps Scrying Glass.
  7. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    you do realize that countering those vision charms or playing with a deck of 80 cards means an automatic win... right?
  8. DÛke Memento Mori

    Yes, and that's why Vision Charm only costs 1 mana, to be casten early. I'll find it with Impulse or something...
    This deck is for fun anyway. I have never and never will played/play against a deck with more than 60 cards in it...
  9. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Okay. Reminds me of my island sanctuary deck, which decks people with Howling mine.
  10. DÛke Memento Mori

    That's where I got the idea from :)
    This deck changes every now and then.
    I had 2 Denying Wind in it, but then I replaced them with 2 Prosperity. I like the above version best though...
  11. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    I like denying wind! It's a great card!
