    How about "Gimme that creature because it's big/it scares me/it's not in my colors" (I chose to go with this instead of good 'ol Control Magic 'cause you can untap lands)

    Just because this deck can use an absolutely crappy card (AND to make Donate actually DO something)...

  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I think we should consider the manabase right about now. I say four each of Polluted Delta, Underground Sea, Watery Grave, and Underground River. And then fill up the rest of the slots with and about even amount of Islands and Swamps once we reach 36-38 slots (we're close, but a few more cards can be squeezed in).

    A dash of painful bounce?

    Oversoul: Sounds good to me.
  7. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    More casualness... and I'll agree on the land distribution.

  10. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Do I get to choose? ;)
  11. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I have to say.... I don't think it will be much of a competition... this deck is much better tuned than the other... I mean, 2 Land Taxes with mostly non-basic lands? I think taking Blue out was a mistake... I'd have much rather seen Red go away...

    And if I could go again... I'd replace the Thwart with the newer counterspell which mills cards... I like that preconstructed deck... (Dimrir?)
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    With the other deck, I would have gone burn/creature/board clearing red spells and use the Seismic Assault as the main kill :) Death by land!
  13. Killer Joe Active Member

    If I were to start one I'd say this:
    "Build a deck"
    Prefered Color/s & Archetype: UB Millstone
    or maybe
    Prefered Color/s & Archetype: UBW Control

    but hey, that's just me... :rolleyes:
  14. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Yeah.... hindsight is 20/20.... the first one was like most firsts in the universe.... a flawed prototype.... :D
  15. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    Hell, I'd play with that deck! I'd play it with pride!

    Ransac, cpa trash man
  16. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    So, it's Ransac (with the land tax deck) VS Spiderman with the other one....
    That's my vote.
  17. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    That would work (and improve things I would imagine), but it isn't even really necessary. If everyone just took the time to look at what would keep the deck having a focus, it would have been fine. It was no one's fault in particular, just ours in general. I think we learned a bit of a lesson from the first one and kept more focus on the second.

    But even with the second deck there's a definite tendency for people to add cards that work well with one or two other cards in the deck, until the whole thing is a mess of synergies that might not be drawn together. Or they want to add casual cards that they think are cool, but that don't fit with the all the cards people have already added (or will add no matter what they put in first).

    So perhaps the highlander concept is best for this...
  18. Zigathon Registered Nerd

    Agreed.

    As far as these first decks go... I vote Ransac with the Land Tax deck (playing with pride) and Spiderman for the U/B business.
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Suddenly I have an image of a steel cage descending behind Ransac and me.... :p

    There's still two slots left, so to go with Phage (and a semi-useful card anyway):
