Hey guys, I'm a casual player, been playing for a few years, and I'm in a group of friends who have recently all started playing Highlander decks.

The games we play vary between multiplayer and conventional 1v1, and the decks consist of varied aggro and control decks.

I'll begin with the list, then go into the over-arching strategy.

// Lands
1 [FUT] Tolaria West
5 [SHM] Island (2)
1 [IN] Elfhame Palace
1 [WWK] Bojuka Bog
1 [RAV] Selesnya Sanctuary
1 [DIS] Simic Growth Chamber
1 [DIS] Azorius Chancery
1 [ALA] Arcane Sanctum
1 [ALA] Seaside Citadel
1 [ALA] Jungle Shrine
1 [ROE] Evolving Wilds
1 [10E] Treetop Village
1 [TSP] Terramorphic Expanse
1 [IN] Coastal Tower
1 [CS] Boreal Shelf
1 [CS] Arctic Flats
1 [ZEN] Graypelt Refuge
1 [ZEN] Sejiri Refuge
1 [WWK] Tectonic Edge
1 [TSP] Saltcrusted Steppe

3 [ALA] Plains (4)
1 [H09] Rupture Spire
1 [LRW] Vivid Meadow
1 [H09] Vivid Grove
1 [RAV] Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree

// Creatures
1 [DD2] Mulldrifter
1 [DIS] Plaxmanta
1 [FD] Trinket Mage
1 [DIS] Coiling Oracle
1 [ARB] Qasali Pridemage
1 [EVE] Wickerbough Elder
1 [ZEN] Mold Shambler
1 [DIS] Indrik Stomphowler
1 [M11] Acidic Slime
1 [AP] Mystic Snake
1 [MR] Duplicant
1 [CHK] Sakura-Tribe Elder
1 [MOR] Stonehewer Giant
1 [DIS] Loaming Shaman
1 [SC] Fierce Empath
1 [PLC] Deadwood Treefolk
1 [TSP] Draining Whelk
1 [ZEN] World Queller
1 [FUT] Aven Mindcensor
1 [RAV] Civic Wayfinder
1 [M10] Borderland Ranger
1 [DIS] Plaxcaster Frogling
1 [FUT] Tarmogoyf
1 [ZEN] River Boa
1 [DIS] Trygon Predator
1 [LRW] Masked Admirers
1 [PLC] Mire Boa
1 [DIS] Patagia Viper
1 [LE] Nantuko Vigilante
1 [ZEN] Kor Sanctifiers
1 [LRW] Pestermite
1 [SHM] Kitchen Finks
1 [BOK] Ninja of the Deep Hours
1 [CHK] Jushi Apprentice
1 [VI] Man-o'-War
1 [SOM] Sunblast Angel
1 [SH] Wall of Blossoms
1 [ROE] Wall of Omens

// Spells
1 [ALA] Oblivion Ring
1 [US] Confiscate
1 [ALA] Relic of Progenitus
1 [M10] Garruk Wildspeaker
1 [FD] Acquire
1 [ZEN] Expedition Map
1 [RAV] Faith's Fetters
1 [MR] Lightning Greaves
1 [TE] Winds of Rath
1 [DD2] Condescend
1 [TSP] Candles of Leng
1 [CFX] Path to Exile
1 [ARB] Behemoth Sledge
1 [EVE] Hallowed Burial
1 [JU] Quiet Speculation
1 [TSP] Think Twice
1 [TO] Deep Analysis
1 [OD] Roar of the Wurm
1 [UL] Planar Collapse
1 [RAV] Congregation at Dawn
1 [SOM] Sylvok Lifestaff
1 [IN] Death or Glory

So the point of this deck is really to eke out small card cardvantages while staying alive against aggro to overwhelm with cards in the midgame, while hoping to lay enough creatures to fill up the red zone (while restocking post wrath) versus control decks.

I am on a seriously tight budget here; I've not actually built the deck yet, and I'm hoping to keep costs as low as possible, so any uncommons/commons that really need to be put in would be most appreciated. Budget rares are of course welcome.

Thanks in advance!

Mystic Speculation and most other Scry or cantrip effects are awesome in Highlander! Mulldrifter wants to be in here also!

Do a card search for Draw. That's a good start.
