    I think haunting misery would be amazing but since it costs 2B

    I think it could be a very flexible deck... theres some good utility cycling cards.

    so something like this..

    4 Barkhide Mauler
    4 Bloated Toad (Pro Blue)
    4 Darkwatch Elves (Pro Black)
    4 Keeneye Aven (Flying)
    4 Pendrell Drake (Flying)
    4 Primoc Escapee (Flying)
    4 Sandbar Serpent

    4 Dark Ritual
    2 Drain Life
    2 Songs of the Damned

    4 Fluctuator

    2 Blasted Landscape
    4 Polluted Mire
    4 Remote Isle
    4 Slippery Karst
    6 Swamp

    i think a red white would work very well.. exploiting spirit cairn.. so instead of just popping a creature out of play with astral.. you get a 1/1 flyer. In addition you have a rop of every color.

    4 Radiant's Judgment
    4 Renewed Faith
    3 Clear

    4 Slice and Dice
    4 Starstorm
    3 Scrap

    4 Spirit Cairn/Astral Slide
    4 Lightning Rift
    4 Fluctuator
    1 Rune of Protection: Artifacts
    1 Rune of Protection: Black
    1 Rune of Protection: Blue
    1 Rune of Protection: Green
    1 Rune of Protection: Red
    1 Rune of Protection: White

    4 Blasted Landscape
    4 Drifting Meadow
    4 Forgotten Cave
    4 Secluded Steppe
    4 Smoldering Crater

    Why run only two Blasted Landscapes?

    I have to admit I like using the white border better, but that is usually because (and I hate to admit this) I am playing in a place that I have never been before, and love watching all the others drool when I drop my 4 white border pirate ships, then drop 4 white border clones, followed up by my 4 white border Doppelgangers. Throw in my 2 white border Braingeysers, and my one white border Ancestral Recall, and you need hip waders to keep dry!!

    I don't care to the point that I search for black-bordered cards for my decks, but I do care enough to say that I think black-bordered cards look immensely better than white-bordered cards.

    For me the aesthetic value of a deck is important. A few white border cards in a deck is very annoyng. But if its wrath, theres nothing to do about it...it will soon be hidden in the graveyard anyway. Lands which I have to look at the rest of the game are much worse.
    I play only casual, and play the same decks for a long time. Some decks have more priority than others though. If I played tourneys, I would play WB too.
    I have played for many years, and a card which used to be BB looks "fake" with WB.
    Anyway, I builded a WB-only deck too. You can build a playable WB white weenie deck. Very White Weenies :) (no, I dont think I´m a racist, but I have a feeling that White Knight might be...).

    I like the BB more, but I'm too practical not to use a WB variant if that's all I have. I'm not spending extra money on cards I have 4x if one or more of them are WB.

    The same money can be spend buying other cards. I'm that practical :)

    I liked there being a difference. Just added variety... now we have these cards with Topps holographic deals of authenticity that I'm baffled by.
