Cut the ajani, jace, charm and cryptic for Captured Sunlight, Maelstrom Pulse, Primal Command/Incendiary Command and Shriekmaw and you have a solid deck.

It is a pretty horrid looking manabase, and doesn't do ANYTHING better than the Jund and Cascade decks already do.

It's unique in the way it is aggro.

Pipi hasn't made a constructive comment on the forums yet. The problem with ml forums is that people ONLY see and suggest what has been proven. It's difficult to get someone past the barrier of what they believe to be "good"

You will see a lot on here that people put decks up, claim they are 55/45 on all meta... However I'd that were the case wouldn't everyone be playing them?


Obviously a suggestion is to include reflecting pools. Manabase will most definitely need tuning, however you don have that much time
seeing as ptq is tomorrow.

Do your best. Play it well. Top 8 and shut most of the ml trolls up

edit : the deck does do things that kind and cascade don't. It recurrs cascading creatures, had 8 tap down effects, possibly 8 counters, more removal... All while having soli creature base.

I'd just go the Cruel Control route.

If you look at Post-M10 Standard PTQ results:

3 Wins:
5C: [x][x][x]

2 Wins:
Kithkin: [x][x]
Faeries: [x][x]

1 Win:
Elf Combo: [x]
Merfolk: [x]

5 Color Control is the winningest deck, and after all, you do want to win a PTQ and not just Top 8. =/

Regardless, good luck with whichever deck you do decide to play, though.

this deck seems okay if you fix up the mana with filter lands and reflecting pool. then use the correct vivid lands for your filters...

vivids > tri-lands even when only playing 2 or 3 colors. you are playing more than 3 so -citadel + vivid.

2 orchards is right. red and white ar ethe most popular colors and there's only 2 matchups that it doesn't give u much.

scratch that- faeries are using vivids for bolt and spout.
