  1. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    This is a deck I've been using... kinda.... and I just wanted to kno what'cha guys thought:

    SB: 1 Steal Artifact
    SB: 1 Disrupting Scepter
    SB: 1 Ice Floe
    SB: 1 Evacuation
    SB: 2 Interdict
    SB: 2 Dream Tides
    SB: 3 Hydroblast
    SB: 4 Chill
    1 Ice Floe
    2 Stalking Stones
    4 Quicksand
    19 Island
    1 Rainbow Efreet
    1 Capsize
    2 Legacy's Allure
    3 Nevinyrral's Disk
    4 Whispers of the Muse
    4 Impulse
    4 Dismiss
    1 Force Spike
    1 Desertion
    2 Dissipate
    4 Memory Lapse
    4 Power Sink
    4 Counterspell


    Instead of the whispers of the Muse, I usually just used 4 Disrupts... but I dunno, it might run better with the whispers in the middle game... but then again, the disrupt would go nicely with the counter theme...

    Meh, maybe an excavation... but that would let my opponent draw too.... Hmm, I'm split minded about it.
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    No Force of Will?
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    So the main kill is the 3 creatures?
  4. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    Yeah... It kinda stomps around here because I know what everyones strategy is going to be, so it shuts down 90% of those decks.

    Only problem is the other 10% are weenies and I just don't have the ability to keep up with those... But I'm thinking of something sneaky or underhanded I can use to kill them off.


    The main kill is not just 3 creatures, it's actually 3 creatures and whatever big nasty my opponent wants to whack me with (Legacy's Allure and Desertion help me there)
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I like my Arctic Circus deck's anti-weenie tech. of Ophidian/Masticore. But I also have a lone Powder Keg in there, just in case I get the opportunity to use it. For your deck though, maybe trying a 4th Disk would help against weenies...
  6. Nightstalkers Creature — Nightstalker

    That or I could try a Fog Bank with something like an Entangler or something...


    Hmm, problem is splashing the mana in and gettin' the lone enchantment... Hmm, interesting feat to perform there. Then again, I should try for other things too.
  7. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    ?? i have no idea what half of the cards in here do but if by the title, its a counterspell deck, i think circular logic is cool, ssorta broken tho
  8. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    There are quite a few counterspells that are better than Circular Logic...
  9. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    but circular logic is still good, and cool lookin:p
  10. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, the "goodness" of a card is relative of course, but I consider Circular Logic to be terrible...
  11. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    fair enough, at least its cool looking......
  12. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    True...

    Walking Sponge also looks cool in a way...

    It might also be a good card if it costed zero...
  13. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    yea.....what card do you think is ccoolest looking out of all the cards you've seen?
  14. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Tough to say...

    Pillage has possibly the coolest flavor text...

    But a lot of cards have cooler pictures...

    What exactly are we saying makes a card "ccoolest looking"?
  15. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    Just the card that you think has the best art, like, off the top of my head, with no thought, itts the darksteel fireball...........
  16. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Heh...

    Infernal Spawn of Evil then. Unglued rules!

    ...seriously, I'd have to say the Tempest Dark Ritual probably...
  17. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    mine is echoing truth...........
  18. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Where's a choke or boil when you need it?!...

    you need spiny starfish in the deck...:)
  19. Homestar Who invited this guy?

    dude, spiny starfish is awesome..................id put viridian longbow on him and make him shoothimself then regenerate over and over then once i have my tokens and my mana, decree of savagry............
  20. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Once, long ago, my army of Starfish tokens under Tidal Influence smashed right through opponents...
