"Show ya" LOL OMG! I canNOT believe that I actually want to play in a standard tournament. I have played in two already this past winter; first time I got eliminated after two rounds, I was playing one of those "Event Decks" and then the next time I removed myself from the tournament after the first game of round 1 because my opponent noticed that the event deck I was playing had cards that were no longer tournament legal (it was different deck from last summer). My collection of cards seriously lacks NEW cards and my knowledge of current standard is extremely limited. So, I thought I'd put together a deck that at the very least I would feel comfortable with: UW Control (first draft) 7x Plains 10x Island 4x Evolving Wilds 3x Glacial Fortress 1x Kraken's Eye 3x Pristine Talisman 4x Chalice of Life/Death 4x Norn's Annex 4x Mana Leak 4x Dissipate 3x Think Twice 2x Unsummon 2x Vapor Snag 2x Mind Control 3x Day of Judgment 4x Whitesun's Passage 1x Karn Liberated SB:// 4x Cancel 4x Flashfreeze 3x Oblivion Ring 1x Dispatch 1x Celestial Purge 2x Dismember I am going to replace the Unsummons with 2 more Vapor Snags; I'm getting rid of both Mind Controls for 1 more Pristine Talisman and Day of Judgment and replacing Karn with another Think Twice. The sideboard is all screwed up because I have no idea what to do but I'm sure the Flasfreezes are staying and the Dismember. I want 4 Divine Offering in there 5 more slots. IDK. I don't know the local envirnment but of the two tournaments I did attend I saw lots of red, black and green and a few red, white & blue decks. *cringe* ...any suggestions? Chalice of Life/Death is my Kill Card.
