the "Let's build a Deck together" game...

    The rules are simple... it should be a viable deck with a reasonable chance of at least being fun to play... Also it should be "casual" but Vintage legal. Also stay away from the Power 9... Each reply get's to pick one card to add. Basic lands will be added later... Post with a Quoted reply adding your card with your handle...

    I will go old school and start the deck off with an easy staple:

    (Red)

    (Green)

    (White)

    (Blue)

    (Black)

    Hope I'm doing this right. For some reason, I'm tempted to sabotoge this and add something like Snowfall, but I'm a nice person and will resist such urges.

    It's also tempting to get the ball rolling and add some card that the deck would have to be built around. But I won't do that either. Instead I'll throw in another classic staple and give this deck what will probably be one of its primary colors...

    Lessee if I get this right...I'll add something to work with the Land Tax:

    (Red)

    (Green)

    (White)

    (Blue)

  4. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    Is it supposed to become a Highlander deck? Anyway, to stay within the You-got-more-lands-than-me-and-that-isn't-fair:

    (Red)

    (Green)

    (White)
    Land Tax - Oversoul
    Oath of Lieges - Limited

    Wow, what a great idea. I like the deck at this point, because there's so many choices for me to add without being original in the least. Let me give it a try:

    (Red)

    (Green)

    (White)
    Land Tax - Oversoul
    Oath of Lieges - Limited
    Academy Rector - Spidey
    (Blue)

    Sol Ring - BigBlue
    Zuran Orb - TomB

    (Land)
    Plains - Turgy22

    If someone has missed this, I don't want to add another card and limit the deck before that person can make a single card-choice on it. So I'll just give it a little redundancy that won't hurt anything. No more highlanderness...

    2x Land Tax? It should have stayed Highlander if you ask me, would have been more fun. What's the point in returning 4 times to post 'Academy Rector'

    Anyway... I add another Rector, thats a strong toolbox card to pull the highlanderyness together. Somebody get some Pattern Of Rebirths in.

    (Originally I was thinking Highlander and was going to start with Eye of Singularity... but then I didn't want to limit it...)

    Well, I think we need an Enlightened Tutor then... And without the oath, I was thinking more limited resources...

    Man, I'm an idiot. I totally missed your comment about adding basic lands later. Thanks for including my Plains, anyway, BB. Now for a more serious inclusion:

    2x Academy Rector = big, fun enchantments! My first thought was actually Battle of Wits, but then this exercise would take forever.

    As an update... I think once we hit 30 cards, you can either add a card or remove another card (but only if there are 30 cards - not counting the plains... :D )

    I guess TomB and Gizmo posted around the same time. I'll add TomB's Tundra back onto the list.

    Okay, I guess I shouldn't have added another Land Tax. The original post didn't specify highlander and I had no reason to assume that it was. I didn't mean to rain on anyone's parade and should have just asked if we wanted this to be highlander or not, rather than adding a second copy of a card.

    And are we really going to just keep adding the manabase this way? If adding multiple copies of cards will be boring, adding over a dozen basic lands is going to be just as bad. In case we are, I'd better add to the manabase as well...

    Island.

    I said we'd add basic lands later... If you care to revise those choices, please do so...

    Also, I'm doing another cleanup since again 2 people posted close to one another...

    Alright. I won't bring up the question of basic lands again until the deck has around 35 nonland cards. At that point, the nature of what the manabase should look like ought to be apparent.
