After seeing the power of including lots of rares in a deck, I've decided to tone it down for casual play (with my 11-yr old son). MBC is a nice, slow format permitting lots of creature battles and some fun tricks. I wanted to keep that theme alive in a few decks designed to cause some interaction (nice to be able to get my son to sit down and talk/play for an hour over a few games). Lumbering Satyr OK, if he chooses to include a moment of silence I could be in real trouble with this one, but since he won't (fog patch is his favorite): 4 Lumbering Satyr 4 Skyshroud Ridgeback 4 Blastoderm 4 Stampede Drivers 4 Vine Trellis/Rushwood Dryad 4 Silverglade Elemental 4 Tranquility 4 Spidersilk Armor 4 Invigorate 4 Skyshroud Claim 20 Forest Rares: Deepwood Elder (or Mystic compass in T2), Natural Affinity/Vitalize (mass attack). Blue/Green Variant 4 Stampede Drivers 4 Rushwood Dryad 4 Vine Trellis 4 Blastoderm 4 Silverglade Elemental 2 Stronghold Machinist 2 Stronghold Biologist 4 Counterspell 4 Invigorate 4 Skyshroud Claim 12 Forest 12 Island That's the general idea. How should I make the decks better without adding more than two rares? Thanks.
