    I was always fond of Soltari Guerrilas

    0: The next time soltari guerrilas would deal combat damage to defending player this turn, it deals that damage to target creature instead.

    Great creature kill.

    I would really suggest adding Blue for Psionic Blast and Serendib Efreet, as well as Ancestral, Time Walk, blue blasts, and Windfall. But if you are stuck on three colors here are the cards I'd recommended

    4 Jackal Pup
    4 Savannah Lion
    4 Kird Ape
    4 Skyshroud Elite
    3 Uktabi Orangutan

    4 Bolt
    4 Incinerate
    4 Disenchant
    2 Land Grant
    1 Enlightened Tutor
    1 Sphere of Resistance
    1 Black Vice
    1 Wheel of Fortune
    1 Regrowth
    1 Tormod's Crypt
    1 Powder Keg
    1 Cursed Scroll

    2 City of Brass
    4 Savannah
    4 Taiga
    4 Scrubland
    4 Wasteland
    1 Strip Mine

    I go by the rule that creatures are stupid and weak, so you don't put Rancor on them unless you are playing Stompy, and then I'd rather use Briar Shield, which is excellent with Berserk.

    For the SB, I don't know if you want Dervishes, as Necro will not be an incredibly common decktype come November. Maybe 3 Pyroblasts and another Abeyance.

    thanks for the suggestion about adding blue. i wanted to add blue but i need the dual lands first and i'm still working on the power nine. anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

    Damn, man, you don't mess around!
    really, all the blue you need is a few methods of counterspelling.
