i'm not saying its the best combination cause its not...
but with my card pool, i think this is the best (at least what i can think of atm)
it doesnt take much to see that i just put in most if not all of that particular color since i dont have any alternative for it.

but, seeing the list now, i think the reason i win is because of the great synergy not just between some cards, but a whole bunch of cards in the deck...

such as:

Troll / Skirmisher / Tiger / Riders + Embrace / Armor

Warden + Skirmisher (well, its pretty much every frickin creature but this take the icing or something)

Troll / Beserker + Lure

Hail o Arrows + F-strikers


So, given my card pool, how would you build your deck any different than this? I know my color combination lack the means to destroy Enchanment or Artifact, but I could (and maybe even have done so) Jedi Mindtrick'ed my opponent into thinking that I do have Cloudchaser/Naturalize/C.Mold in my SB..

I think U/R can be quite good but without
a single 'tom' or Incinerate or another 1-2 removals, it's not really worth it.

My point is, bombs win games obviously, but sometime so much synergy tromps bombs.dec

EDIT: crap, spoiler tag = OFF?

your deck isn't a pile of synergy, it is a pile of bombs. troll ascetic, hail of arrows, blanchwood armor, and (2!) belanish knight. Along with a solid deck it is no wonder why you won.
