To take an interesting splinter out of the longer discussion... In essence, we are looking for the best 2 CC or less instants for each color - and we should maybe look at both Type 1, Extended, and type 2. I'm more curious to see what everyone else thinks... But here are some of my early ideas: In White: Swords, Enlightened Tutor, maybe Tithe in the right deck(Armageddon). Isn't there a token generator which costs 2 or less? and finally Disenchant. In Black: Diabolic Edict, Vampiric Tutor, Cabal Ritual (if you have threshold... ok it isn't great...) I know I'm forgetting many good ones... In Blue: Too many to list... In Green: Giant Growth?, Fog?, Naturalize. Berserk, any more really good instants in Green? In Red: Incinerate seems to keep cropping up in my mind. Shock seems weak... Any really good ones I'm forgetting? Later I'll run a search to see what Instants are available at under 2 CC... Any good Charms? Vision Charm? Is Funeral Charm an Instant?
