Valakut would be cool...I know thats reaching

Maritial Coup should be here too. Alternate win con.

I like the idea but if they kill your 8 man lands you just lose? Is that the plan?

Deck needs a couple sphinxes to seal the deal. Many decks could simply kill all of your man lands and you'd almost certainly get decked first due to the nature of the deck.

Well, the martial coups work as a win condition. However, then there is the question of whether you can live long enough to cast martial coup for 5. Also, that's your only removal.....4 spells.

The manlands aren't good enough to hold the fort in this environment. I think you need more defense in the deck. Wall of denial.....probably.

Garruk Wildspeaker.

He's a RAMP guy, and an alternate win condition as well. I'd suggest : - 2 explore, -1 Treasure Hunt, +3 Garruk. Or maybe another form of Ramp via Trace of Abundance? A Trace on Colonnade or Stirring Brush would be an untargetable 3/4 reacher or 4/4 flyer.

Also, wouldn't Courier's Capsule be a better alternative than Mindspring? Just a thought, you can Clarion a Capsule, but not a mindspring.

Play a good card drawing card not Treasue Hunt you have no Jace or halimar Depths this card will usualy be socery speed cycling in which the opponent sees what you got. Divination or ponder seem better.

I've been trying this out! I've only played fishbowl games, but DUDE, this is GREAT! Use more permanents, though. Rules say that you can stack triggered abilities for CIPT with the Amulet in play, so several amulets = more untap abilities on stack, just tap them after every untap trigger resolves = LOTS of mana. I tried putting in instant speed stuff for maximum effect of the CIPT (course, Clarion Ultimatum is your idea), and I tried replacing blue with red for Valakut, Comet Storm and Realmrazer. Will keep testing, thanks for the idea!

I think Garruk is trash in this deck.

It's just a target for burn and maelstrom pulse.
