  1. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    You'd be shocked as to how effective this thing is...not only because creature removal (Mutilate, Edict, Repulse, etc.) is rendered completely useless, but because it just goes so fast, and can crank even faster if need be!

    18x Mountain
    2x Barbarian Ring

    4x Overmaster
    4x Shock
    4x Firebolt
    2x Sonic Seizure
    4x Volcanic Hammer
    4x Flame Burst
    4x Fiery Temper
    4x Ensnaring Bridge
    4x Grafted Skullcap
    2x Violent Eruption
    4x Earthquake

    SB:
    1x Barbarian Ring
    3x Breath of Darigaaz
    3x Molten Influence
    4x Urza's Rage
    4x Pit Trap

    First, some things need explaining.
    Overmaster is NOT in there in case I need to push something past counters. It's there because it turns this into a 56-card deck; it's a cheap way of cycling a bad draw into a useful spell.
    1x Barbarian Ring is in the sideboard for the same reason as 4x Urza's Rage; against counter-based decks, it hurts bad.
    Breath of Darigaaz is there for quick weenie hordes, like elves and such.
    Molten Influence is surprisingly good; your opponent is at 6 and FoFs. You Molten Influence it with three cards left in hand. He takes the hit, you Shock him. Good game.
    Pit Trap is a wild card, but it's a quick and effective defense vs. Tog...he has to bounce it before Tog can attack, and I've seen enough bounceless versions of Tog that I can stop cold with one good Pit Trap. Especially effective at a casting cost of 2, because it gets in under countermagic, esp. if I go first.

    Thoughts?

    I tried out the deck in MOL, unfortunately I had to make some substitutions based on lack of cards, but even with the changes it did pretty well.

    I like it, and I think once I get some more of the key cards it'll be even better.


    I just got done playing a guy who haunting echoed me and then conceded after seeing the deck. Just thought you'd like to know.
