A long time ago, there was an obselete thread about a new deck idea called "Big.dec." The idea was simple - A U/W control deck running Crumbling Sanctuaries and Rishadan Pawnshops to provide a lock, while dozens of counterspells kept the ever-deadly Disenchants from coming to full use. The deck initially wieghed in at 90-some-odd cards, and grew ever so slowly to a whopping 150! I played it for a while, and found to my great joy, that it was a winning design - At least against creature decks. It lost to everything control, and most things mid-range. Sad, really. Come 2001. Come Arena. The format? Goblin Wars. Everyone has to have 30 of a single creature type between maindeck and sideboard. *thinks* Gee, that sounds like about the right format for Big.dec!
