someone tell me how a deck consisting of
-desolate lighthouse
-noxius revival
-white/blue miracle cards
-snapcaster
-ponder
and some cards depending on meta and/or countermagic
is not broken??

i mean how can a deck possibly beat this synergy??

greetings david

PS: i predict a broken UWr Deck as soon as someone comes up with a testet balanced list!

We all see the synergy there, but you are probably making your judgment too quickly. You have to consider things like mana base - it's not very good in t2 right now, especially if you want to run colorless utility lands and you've got 4 colors there. Snapcaster is definitely broken, but only when you play him in the right deck which this doesn't seem to be. The miracle cards can be a great bargain, then again they can be too little, too late if you don't draw them at the right time. Noxioius Revival/Reclaim could set up miracles, but the built-in card disadvantage is not a strong argument for it.

The issue with the deck is that it's more or less a three card combo that doesn't win you the game.

Noxious Revival is mostly useless in control because it's card disadvantage. Unless you have Miracles to target, it's more or less a dead card.

Desolate Lighthouse isn't bad, as it digs for your other pieces, but it doesn't generate card advantage and it doesn't help your 3 color manabase either.

The Miracles are great topdecks, and Ponder helps, but if you draw one and don't have the mana to cast it right away (or just don't want to), they're very expensive and not very good until you get Lighthouse and Revival. They're obviously the best of the three. But, you could just play Terminus and/or Entreat the Angels in a regular W/U deck, not worry about the red mana and Lighthouse and Noxious Revival and just play better cards in those slots.

the problem is that the miracle cards arent that good and your breaking your back to miracle them doesnt make them better it makes your deck worse. and with playing miracle cards there will be times where u draw them in the opener or when u have a line of plays that dont allow u to use the miracle u draw so its just a bad card in your hand. miracle is just a weak mechanic.
