Needs more Grozoth, you know for transmute, and such. Plus it's a 9th turn 9/9!!

maybe 2 draining whelk? how does this deck vs boros or other aggro?
I dont like the hussars but i dunno what else to use to draw. I still wonder how this deck can win vs boros Razz i mean all the pro reds, the hohleys the burn all for less mana.

Well first off the decklist played by fear_these in the last trial owns this one. Second off this deck pretty much cannot win preboard against boros. After board with like ivory mask and CoP: red the game gets better and you'd be surprised how much fetters and helix help against boros the life gain is ridiculous. I used to play a deck with 4 fetters 4 hierarch main and board mask and CoP and had 100% vs boros and satanic sligh which wasn't that long ago. As for it being competitive it hoses just about every straight up control deck and has good matchups vs most agro-control decks and slows combo down but has trouble winning b4 they go off. This is simply a metagame deck that will do well vs control/agro. I like the deck overall but there are better.

pretty cool deck I think.

My only prob is the cloudskates, I think they should be replaced by some other card drawing type creature/card.

Well you kinda passed the deck off like it was trash, even though it obviously has some good matchups and isn't that bad itself...

The creator said it beats boros pretty hard. I'm gonna go with the guy who got 9th at world's opinion.


damn right, all u ppl sayin the deck is bad, cloudskates are bad, or anything else are just dumb. when u get 9th at worlds THEN u can come back and talk shit...however shaheen is a FAR better deckbuilder than almost every single player on m-l, so plz stfu. thx.

The deck is pretty bad. A friend of mine built it.

The only thing it seems to be good at is losing. Not to completely trash the deck, I like the concept, but I think it's in the wrong colors to really abuse Momentary Blink.

So what colors do u think abuse blink green for krosan cloudscraper??? Honestly don't act dumb. This deck has placed twice now with 9th at worlds and 7th at the recent SCG 1k tourney so for those that don't think the deck can win well then you just suck at playing it. I have seen this deck in action and it does well vs boros and even control with solifuges from board. If it gets a land lead on control its hard for them to catch up and it is very easy to color screw most versions of control. However I think this deck might have trouble with dstorm but I'm not positive maybe the mass LD owns it but wipe aways/trickbinds would help that matchup.

All the builds seen here have VERY bad game against any aggro. It doesn't crush boros at all (even after SB) and the match vs anything green is just horrible. Hovever most of the control matches are really good, as it's just aggro+LD.

I personnaly like more controlish versions of the deck, like the usual URW Control, but using some Blinks (+ suspendable bouncer) and Hellkites. Just because Hellkite eot, at your turn attack, blink,flashback=GG, and a better game against aggro.

What cards does this deck gain from PC. Is Akroma, Angel of Fury viable? I think that card will help a faster win, especially if it is blinked end of opponents turn.

As for ppl saying that we shouldn´t criticize a guy that made top9 in last worlds, i think that's stupid.
(e.g) I've played 2 times against Paulo Carvalho, a portuguese guy that made top8 at worlds and i've won both times, and i don´t think that he have better playing skills that some ppl at magic-league have, so don´t say that cuz a guy made a great performance at worlds shouldn't be criticized. That's lamme. But critics should be made in a constructive way.

P.s : Pardon my french.

All I know is that this deck gets raped hard by MGA. MGA just sits back drops excellerants up the ass and bounces all its lands with scryb so they don't ever die and laughs at the decks face as it beats em down with cloaked, giant growthed, any pumped creatures.
