Hi guys, I've been play testing this deck for a wee while now. seems to be doing fine, however every 10th game or so i just flop. im not sure whether its inferior playing or the deck.

I would like some help with the deck, switching lands around etc. sb options for different m/us and general play ideas.

please do note that this deck is hard to play, and even harder to perceive a game with it, unless you actually sleeve 'er up

without further ado...
the list

Lands
6 Island
4 Sulfur Falls
3 Mountain
4 Blackcleave Cliffs
2 Copperline Gorge
4 Drowned Catacomb
1 Shimmering Grotto

Creatures
3 Snapcaster Mage

Spells
3 Slagstorm
2 Dissipate
3 Geistflame
2 Tribute to Hunger
1 Disperse
4 Burning Vengeance
3 Desperate Ravings
4 Forbidden Alchemy
4 Mana Leak
4 Think Twice
2 Devil's Play
1 Ponder



sb looks like this

1 Slagstorm
2 Dissipate
1 Tribute To Hunger
1 Flashfreeze
1 Arc Trail
2 Wurmcoil Engine
2 Memorys Journey
2 Spellskite
2 Olivia Voldaren
1 Ancient Grudge



MD

Notable mentions are ponder and disperse as 1 ofs.
they have both done me well and love them maindeck.
both usually stay in vs control, however come out vs aggro, or ramp.
Tribute to hunger may also seem a little out of place, however this card is very important in the hexproof match-ups (which seems to be my worst m/u)

SB

im not sure slagstorm is needed in sb aswell, however as it is my only available sweeper (that does not cost BB or more than 8 mana) i think it can stay in.

flashfreeze and arc trail come in vs weenie green decks with 8 1 drops etc.

wurmcoil engine is obvious also

olivia voldaren has been mvp in sb. she kills tokens and gains control of any heartless summoning creatures or unburial rites creatures.

memorys journey is in sb only because i fear the mirror and other shenanigans, however this may be unwarrented as i have not yet drawn it when i side it in.

love some feedback, also ya'll should test the deck, its a fun play.

trolling welcome.

Why do you have non-RU lands? You're better off with multicolor artifact lands or something.

what multicolour artifact would you recommend?
there are none in standard.
i also play non RU lands, because it would be hard to cast the green and black spells without them.

hmmm, how do you see that?
i understand this is a flashback deck, however to get to the point where you can start burning your opponent for tonnes, you need to have a fair bit of mana and a lot of draw.

i have seen some lists with 4 snapcasters, and when ive tried its been ok, but when you draw multiples he can sometimes turn into a 2/1 flash for 2.

what would you recommend i take out for a 4th?
