I am a returning player, and would really appreciate feedback on this build. Questions for comments:

-Is it feasible to try to create a 5cc strictly on M10 and the Alara block (ARB, CFX, ALA)? The point is to have a T2 deck ready for Oct 3rd, likely improved by some Zendikar cards.

-Are there any cards that can improve this deck? (In M10,ARB,CFX,ALA) If so, which ones?

-Are the quantities appropriate?

Any other comments?

Thanks

to be completely honest the new dual lands are horrible in a 5cc deck, i would run some land cycling cards and the tri land with basic lands...

// Deck file for Magic Workstation (http://www.magicworkstation.com)

// Lands
4 [M10] Plains (1)
4 [ALA] Savage Lands
2 [M10] Swamp (3)
4 [ALA] Crumbling Necropolis
4 [M10] Mountain (4)
4 [ALA] Arcane Sanctum
4 [ALA] Jungle Shrine

// Creatures
2 [ALA] Broodmate Dragon
4 [M10] Baneslayer Angel
4 [ARB] Bloodbraid Elf

// Spells
3 [CFX] Path to Exile
2 [CFX] Banefire
4 [ARB] Bituminous Blast
3 [ARB] Maelstrom Pulse
3 [CFX] Volcanic Fallout
3 [ARB] Soul Manipulation
2 [ALA] Cruel Ultimatum
4 [M10] Silence

// Sideboard
SB: 1 [CFX] Volcanic Fallout
SB: 2 [M10] Jace Beleren
SB: 3 [CFX] Countersquall
SB: 3 [ARB] Thought Hemorrhage
SB: 2 [ARB] Sen Triplets
SB: 4 [ARB] Anathemancer

no more M10 dual lands: check
clipboard format: check (bleeding eyes sucks)
land cycle cards: Unsure, are you referring to the [ALA] <> Panorama, other spells/creatures, or something else?

My overall question is still: Can 5cc be pulled off like this without the Shadowmoor/Lorwyn cycle lands (Reflecting pool, Vivids etc.) M10 and the Shards of Alara cycle seems limited on flexible lands.

I personally don't know that it could be with the insanely quick aggro running around. it looks like your deck is leaning more toward 5 color cascade. i would drop the banefire(its a dead card to cascade into) and move the silence to the sb. you have alot of cards to consider for those 6 slots. esper charms and mulldrifters maybe, i dunno.....

Tave, you have come up with some very good points, and I will need to look hard at either supporting the cascade better, or just drop it and go for most of your suggestions.

I am a bit torn regarding the counterspells. In current standard control decks, cryptic command is so strong it's pretty much mandatory. Essence scatter and Negate feel quite restricted in their use. They are only reactive, not preventive, and frankly, four of each will take up a lot of your deck.

I guess a lot depends on Zendikar. Will something replace Kithkin/Faeries? Will sufficient good lands be included to support a 5c deck?

well just looking at the lists from last block season, you don't need sufficient lands you already have them, but Soldiers.dec will replace kithkin.
