I've been fooling around with the idea on MWS for awhile now. Since my Lord of Atlantis will cycle out with TSP, I figured my deck would need a bit more of an offensive boost, and I think replacing the white splash with a bit more of a dark side would be just the answer. Here's what I've been toying with (mind you, this is all post-rotation:

Lands:

6x Island
4x Swamp
4x Secluded Glen
4x Underground River
3x Sunken Ruins

Creatures:

4x Merrow Reejery
4x Inkfathom Infiltrator
3x Silvergill Adept
3x Inkfathom Witch
3x Gravelgill Duo
3x Stonybrook Banneret

Spells:

4x Boomerang
3x Cryptic Command
3x Sage's Dousing
3x Nameless Inversion
3x Aphotic Wisps
3x Door of Destinies (thinking of replacing with Pack's Disdain for more board control)

Sideboard:

4x Flashfreeze
4x Deathmark
3x Negate
2x Pithing Needle
2x Dragon's Claw

Honestly, i completely forgot about him O.O Hmm...maybe i could use him in place of the Duo's, I haven't tested those into the deck yet, but I figured they'd be kinda fun to run with it.

Because I like to be prepared. Because I'm thinking ahead. Take your pick, although I'm sure no reason will save me from the inevitable flame.

It looks like it'd work a lot better, but I'm big fan of U/B ever since I played it back in Ravnica, and I'm hoping to make something out of it that works.
