Zadok001 replied to my thread about Disrupting Scepter and mentioned something about the classic deck called, "The Deck" (by Brian Weissman). I've never heard of that deck name but I have seen several variants of it. Thanks to Spiderman, who gave me a link to follow, for showing me a Mason Loring Bliss version of this classic deck. After looking at it I started to think of ways to build something like that in the current T2 enviornment. Here's Bliss' 1997 version: Mana Production 4x City of Brass 7x Island 3x Plains 1x Black Lotus (is this card any good? j/k) 3x Lotus Petal 1x Mox Emerald 1x Mox Jet 1x Mox Pearl 1x Mox Ruby 1x Mox Sapphire 1x Sol Ring Card Drawing 1x Anscestral Recall 1x Timetwister 1x Time Walk 1x Gaea's Blessing 1x Regrowth 1x Braingeyser 1x Demonic Tutor 1x Mystical Tutor 1x Enlightened Tutor 1x Jayemdae Tome 1x Library of Alexandria Offense 1x Rack 1x Jester's Cap 1x Tormod's Crypt A Lock 2x Disrupting Scepter 1x Amnesia (I forget what this one does ) 4x Mana Drain 2x Counterspell Defense 3x Blood Moon 1x Moat 1x The Abyss 2x Swords to Plowshares 3x Disenchant 1x Balance 1x Ivory Tower 1x Cursed Totem (This is how Bliss typed it, not me) I'm a hugh fan of Control via Stalling, so I attempted to put together a deck with "The Deck"'s objective in mind. "A Deck": extremely loosely based on "The Deck" 2x Misdirection 4x Absorb 4x Counterspell 2x Disrupting Scepter 1x Teferi's Moat 1x Spiritual Assylum 2x Rout 2x Wrath of God 1x Restock 2x Fact or Fiction 4x Accumulated Knowledge 1x Soothsayer 1x Mystical Tutor 1x Enlightened Tutor 2x Lobotomy 1x G/W Cameo 1x U/B Cameo 1x U/W Cameo 2x Disenchant 2x Jeweled Spirit 1x Rackling 1x Story Circle 4x City of Brass 1x Elfhame Palace 1x Brushland 2x Underground River 2x Adarkar Wastes 2x Coastal Tower 1x Kor Haven 3x Plains 6x Island This deck is a working "Pile" in progress, but I am so fascinated by it's possibilities that I am 'play-testing' with it to see if it's remotely tournament worthy. Any suggestions (besides, "Give it up YJ"), are welcomed.
