I think 5cc is the best way to go at least with white planar cleansing wraths and ect fogs green for mana excel and black for tutors red for board sweepers and huntmasters

Seeing that Rune Scarred Demon was not reprinted in M13, it would be illegal to put in this deck.


Wrong. M12 is still legal in Standard.

M12 is legal in standard for as long as the Scars of Mirrodin Block.

And I second the argument for more than 2 colors. But you do not need all 4. There is no need for ramp. The deck wins with 5 mana. That you can get to with normal land drops while you search for BotW. Ramp would help if your center game plan is to ramp into something huge, which it isn't.

You could include door to nothingness if you like weird wins, then you would obv. need 5 colors.

A 250 card 5 colour deck sounds super consistent. Two colour is the right way.

There is a popular Legacy Aggro BoW deck that Djinn used to play...Its not half bad...the redundancy of most threats in terms of reprints etc. allows you to basically play a normal deck. Of course you do tend to get some very strange hands.

Play with a UBWr manabase and I think you should be fine. There are more than enough filters, finders, and duals that you should be fine.

Agreeing with dark wizard and i also think fog effects will essentially let you stall till you find A a board sweeper or B more card drawing awesomeness and C a Tutor. But going control i think you would lose alot to the lack of threats O.o and time limits
