HI all,

have not been playing that much of late cos I have been working lotsa, but I thought i would be together a cheap rock deck for casual.

Just going for the Death Cloud variant.

Really I want to make the deck powerful enough to compete (a little) in legacy.

This is what I have come up with so far (I price it at about $50 US - do not want to spend more than $60 - buying paper cards)

3 [10E] Treetop Village
4 [THS] Plains (3)
7 [6E] Forest (4)
1 [KTK] Blossoming Sands
1 [FRF] Scoured Barrens
5 [6E] Swamp (1)
1 [KTK] Jungle Hollow

// Creatures 13 (need more)
3 [CMD] Yavimaya Elder
4 [RAV] Loxodon Hierarch
2 [MMA] Tidehollow Sculler
4 [CHK] Sakura-Tribe Elder

// Spells
2 [ISD] Unburial Rites
4 [M11] Duress
3 [A] Swords to Plowshares
2 [GP] Castigate
1 [RAV] Putrefy
1 [DDK] Mortify
3 [TSP] Chromatic Star
2 [MBS] Go for the Throat
2 [DS] Death Cloud
2 [ORI] Read the Bones

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, i figure its missing eternal wtiness style recursion (witness is too costly however). And other value beaters like Goyf, Scooze etc...

I have a pimped out death cloud list for casual play with friends, its not even legacy legal lol.

1 Vampiric tutor
4 Golgari Signet
4 Far Seek
2 Strangleroot Geist
2 Sakura Tribe Elder
1 Demonic Tutor
4 Kitchen Finks
2 Geralfs Messenger
1 Eternal Witness
3 Cultivate
4 Solemn Simulacrum
2 Harmonize
2 Thragtusk
4 Death Cloud

4 Overgrown Tomb
2 Bayou
2 Verdant Catacomb
2 Woodland Cemetry
6 Swamp
1 Urborg Tomb of Yawgamoth
3 Forest
3 Treetop Village
1 Boseju Who Shelter's all

They told me counters were against the spirit of casual so I built this. Then they said this was no fun, because no one ended up with anything in play but me. So I built a token opposition deck, which they said the same thing about. Finally I built a UG gifts crystal shard deck, they said was okay.

With this deck, harmonize is awful main deck you almost never want to cast it, finks, cultivate and thragtusk are all really strong, would not stand a chance in competitive legacy, they are maybe cards to consider. Building for casual is far different than building for competitive.
