I took ages ovee this pick, I have very little mana fixing and I felt if I took the vein drinker over the warp my mana base was more than likely going to be the sort of thing that gets your rating below what it started out as, so i went with the warp, flame away I stand by it, the warp felt stronger than just a 4/4 flyer i can not use.

Alot of drafts Im seeing stuff like this guess this can happen when alot of people are looking to go 5cc.


Anyway the deck

1 e-capsule
1 agony warp
2 dredgescape zombie
3 zombie outlander
1 obelisk of bant
1 obelisk of esper
1 windwright mage
1 oblivion ring
1 brackwater elemental
2 kathari screecher
1 rhox war monk
1 manforce mace
1 scornful aether lich
1 corpse conniseur
1 skeletal kathari
1 Waveskimmer Acen
1 sharding sphinx
1 kiss of the amesha
1 absorb vis
2 Plains
6 Island

Ouch, that sucks not getting any Esper Cormorants pack 3. I would have said Resounding Silence over Corpse Connisseur but thats just me.

Now then, why the hell did Manaforce Mace table? that things first pick in any 4+ colour deck and a solid playable in any 3-colour deck. :S

Dreadwing isn't that bad at all. Grixis illusionist is pretty decent in 5 color too. not really the "bottom of the barrel" that you're thinking they are. Dreadwing wins games, and trades with almost any creature just by paying 6 mana.

I would've taken the vein drinker. He is very good, getting the red might have been a little hard, but not horrible with the ability to pick up some panaromas that pack or land cyclers in conflux.

Grixis Illusionist is on pair with Mana Cylix, but with some Fleshbag Marauder protection for your other creatures, and maybe a chump later. He dies to mass removal though. I rather play another land :/

He does alot more the cylix in 5cc (cylix is actually playable in 5 color too..so yeah, it is the same thing basically) He can chump, and sometimes even trade with other dorks. He makes it so you actually have the right mana to landcycle on turn 2. And as you said, if you have fleshbag in your deck (or facing it) its nice to have a 1/1 dork.
I dont really think a land is better considering you cant control which land you draw Wink. Its not the best card ever, but in 5 color is usually makes the cut.
