    Here's a counter burn deck I designed.

    4xKindle
    4xShock
    2xFireball
    4xIncinerate
    2xAether Flash
    4xLightning Bolt
    4xCounterspell
    4xForbid
    4xRethink
    4xMana Leak
    4xPower Sink
    20xIsland
    20xMountain

    Any comments?

    If not (or if so, maybe something to look forward to)

    • Chain Lightnings
      Force of Will
      Fireblast?
      Any non-basic land that might combine red and blue
      Mana Flare
      Capsize to bounce the COP:Red that will probably come out
      An Earthquake and/or Purging Scythe to take care of a weenie rush

    Delay 'em with counters while toasting them with cheese. <laughs> I love this concept. Nice and familiar ... and besides, I'm a tad bit weary of commenting about fishes... :D

    Spidey's suggestions tweak:

    Mana Flare will kill the deck ... since it only has two X-cheese to abuse it with. <laughs> Play the Flare and watch the green start plopping down the Blasted-derms like there was no tomorrow. More X-cheese (like Kaervek's Torch for instance) if you plan on adding Flare.

    Earthquakes are good! Failing that, Pyroclasm does the trick. Even Breath of Darigaaz would be nice. Otherwise, you'll be murdalized by weenies ...

    More Aether Flashes! Cook the sorry buggers as they plop down. What the hey ... add in Furnaces of Rath too. Double the fun!

    Thwart and Foil would be handy in the deck ... <glances at the enormous amount of land in the deck> Yep. They sure would. So would Force of Will.

    Eherm. Have fun with the deck! Just remember to avoid playing against anyone running a 10 Mountains 30 Kindles deck. :D

    Man, I used to LOVE "Fire and Ice".
    <YJ, reminisces of the Tempest Block days of "Counter-Phoenix", mmmmmmmmm,b--u--r--r--r--r--n--n--n and c--o--o--u--u--n--n--t--e--r--r--r--r.>
    I like your deck, you'll annoy lots of people with it, and, isn't that really how magic ought to be played?

    Oops... I thought there were 4 Fireballs.

    I also didn't notice 40 land. Is that a typo and meant to be 10 each? Cause otherwise you have 80 cards and I'm pretty sure you don't want that.

    I agree with Whimsy that if you put in the Flare, you need more X spells (Earthquake, Distintegrate, Torch, whatever. If you don't, you don't need the Flare.

    Yeah, I accidentally put 20 instead of 10 for each land... my mistake...
