In the MYOS articles, one of the strategies talked about was taking an old standard deck, and reworking it with a new core set. How about Fires of Yavimaya? I seem to remember when this was standard legal, It was the best deck at the time. Here is a preliminary decklist using IN-MM-10. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

Land

4 Mountain
8 Forest
4 Sulfurous Springs
4 Llanowar Wastes
4 Karplusan Forest

Creatures
4 Birds of Paradise
4 Llanowar Elves
2 Thornscape Battlemage
3 Stampeding Wildebeests
4 Blastoderm
4 Flametongue Kavu
3 Spiritmonger
2 Shivan Wurm

Other Stuff

3 Ghitu Fire
4 Fires of Yavimaya
4 Saproling Burst

SB
2 Hurricane
2 Void
4 Naturalize
3 Urza's Rage
4 Terminate

There's a lot of combo running around MYOS and I think that's why it isn't very easy to play a competitive fires deck. How have you been doing against it?

The problem i see with this deck is that the cratures are too costly, the deck is intended to go on offensive form turn 3-4 onwards, wich i think is too slow for MYOS, and if they kill the mana critters, worse.

I seem to remember RB winning the world championship that year; Fires got second.

Yeah, Machine Head won that year, but being the best deck doesn't mean winning every game. Besides, Machine Head was fine tuned against aggro decks such as Fires and Rebels.

Just to add my 2 cents machine head was the deck that beat the deck, that beat Fires it was probably 60 / 40 vs fires but draw go was fairly decent against it
