    Okay, I built this deck, but it isn't working so well. It should rock, but something is grinding up the whole synergy and I have no idea what it is. Any help is appreciated. Here it is:

    10x Swamp
    10x Island
    10x Plains
    30x Chromium

  3. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Very well. I think the problem was that I don't have enough land. Here's the new deck:

    30x Chromium
    30x Shyft
    30x Coalition Victory
    10x Island
    10x Swamp
    10x Forest
    10x Plains
    10x Mountain
    20x City of Brass

    Think this will work better?
    Advice always welcomed.

    30x Coalition Victory
    20x Ancestral Recall
    20x Black Lotus

    You need Rashida Scalebane. In case anyone steals your Chromiums. Of course you need as many Rashidas, as you play Chromiums, so I would go with 100.

    Add 1 Battle of Wits. But only 1. Extra copies are dead cards.

    riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight....silliness
  8. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    Can't beat my deck with 500 Astral Slides and 200 Lightning Rifts.

    I think it's the 30 Chromiums that are tying you up.
  9. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Thanks for the advice. I don't like as many Rashidas as Chromiums, as Chromium is the main dood, so the numbers are split with Visara. Also, the Astral Slide deck will not beat me, because like the Borg, I have assimilated it! So here is the updated deck.

    1,000x Chromium
    500x Astral Slide
    200x Lightning Rift
    100x Shyft
    100x Coalition Victory
    100x Ancestral Recall
    50x Rashida Scalebane
    50x Visara the Dreadful
    20x Black Lotus
    20x City of Brass
    10x Island
    10x Swamp
    10x Forest
    10x Plains
    10x Mountain

    You need feldons cane.
  11. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Why Feldon's Cane?
  12. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Just in case Feldon needs it...;)
  13. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Invalid. The deck is to feature Chromium, so he can get revenge. Feldon's Cane will not go in.

    However, I think artifacts are needed. Since you are the expert on Artifacts, train...which would help?
  14. train The Wildcard!!!...

    1,000x Chromium
    100x Coalition Victory
    100x Ancestral Recall
    100x Weird Harvest
    100x Cromat
    50x Sneak Attack
    20x Black Lotus
    20x Volcanic Island
    20x Bayou
    15x Tundra
    15x Badlands
    15x Taiga

    Dragon Arch...
    Triassic Egg...
    Altar of Dementia...
    Lifeline...
    Eye of Yawgmoth...
    Monkey Cage...

    I made some adjustments to the deck... Here's why... if you sneak cromat - you can then instantly cast the victory - you win because of duals and cromat... The shyft has to be in play at the beginning of your upkeep to work...

    The sneak also allows multiple Chromiums in play(even if only for a second) to show the seriousness of... oh never mind...

    Anyhow - Chromium - Chrome - Cromat... that's why it's neat for Cromat to be in there also...

    The Altar shows that not only does Chromium smack you silly - but he adds insult to injury and takes some of the deck with him...

    The other artifacts are just different ways of manipulating P/T, CC, and other features of Chromium/Cromat...
  15. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    I will take your suggestion into consideration. However, that build requires at least 50 of each of the BASIC lands in addition to waht's there.

    Thanks.
  16. train The Wildcard!!!...

    SeFro - you don't need the basics... all because of the invasion FAQ... It was ruled that way for duals...

    Coalition Victory
    Color= Multi Type= Sorcery Cost= 3WUBRG IN(R)
    Text (IN): You win the game if you control a land of each basic land type and a creature of each color.
    --A land which is of multiple types or creature which is of multiple colors counts for each of its types and/or colors. [Invasion FAQ 2000/10/03]

    "Trust me - I'll be a judge soon...":eek: :p
  17. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Understood, but you see, basics look better when compared to Chromium...

    *hates to admit that Chromium looks like crap when next to a bunch of dual lands*


    ...so the land mix has to be dilluted a bit with basics, which function better to showcase Chromium.

    This is a waste of time f00l. Here's my deck.

    ...
    If some cracker doesn't just let you win, bitchslap them.
    (I am not black, I don't think I'm black. I'm sorry if you find cracker offensive, cracker.)

    This might be fun.
