18 lands is like... 6 too few in a deck with an average converted mana cost of 3.31 (yes I calculated it!)

In order to go to 5 mana as quickly as possible, you should not miss a single land drop the first 5 turns. This means that you need 5 lands in 12 cards (or more) on average. That is 41,6%, or close to 25 lands.

Your percentage is 30. This means that you need 15 cards in 5 turns, three more than if you ran 25 lands. In that case you need to add draw cards like Mulldrifter, Jace or Sign in Blood to your deck (and hit two of them) in order to go as quickly as possible to 5 lands.

Take out the peripheral cards for more land.

That will disturb the balance of lands and nonlands, Vedrfolner's calculations were for a 60-card deck, so you should take out 5 cards for the 5 lands.

Get lots of new players into the game, not just commenting on this thread but the threads in general ober last few weeks seem to show a rise in new players.

Its frustrating as the best advice you can really give a new player is to get out there and play, as often the decks are not good enough to feedback upon with out taking the whole deck apart and with out constantly having to explain yourself, to the point where your literally writing articles.

I'd say it's a good thing overall though - it's nice to have new players enter the mix, although perhaps this place is a little harsh as a first experience of magic.

Fair point by you of course, but it's the only way on a place like this I guess.

yeah i had built one very similar like 3 days ago with the same concept lol but it definately needs to be tweaked. i threw in some fear creatures too so that lifelink will almost always go through.
