There is no logical reason for that pile to only have 1x Sigil of the Empty Throne. You run 23 enchantments. Cut one of the other 5-cost enchantments.

Magic's a simple game, 2 people take turns playing cards and in the end Divinevert wins 2-0...

Done. -1x Cfu +1 Throne. I cut a throne today and figured it wouldn't make a difference with tutors in but I agree with your judgment, it's a big reason for this deck to exist.

Please play around with it and share your impressions with me. I would love to do some testing with you on live sometime.

Did you consider squeezing in Conviction to spam angels on demand?

Cards that probably should be in are Gideon, Big Nissa, Sorin and possibly Kalitas. I wanted to play with Conviction, Renegade Rallier and Sram, Senior Edificer in the deck but haven't had time to do so.

For someone that accused me of having redneck math skills, I think maybe you should work on your reading skills.

You really have no sense of humour. The misspell in the calculatiin was so obvious, that it was funny. Is redneck really such an insult? I'm from Europe, so how would I know?:-)

On topic: I dunno how I missed the conviction part.

In Alabama if you are then it's like a badge worn with pride. I certainly am not, I don't know why you would call me that over a typo? I hear it from some of the psych patients I deal with, if a black man or woman is screaming it at you it's generally an insult meant to get under your skin (I had one guy that was his go to term when he was angry at the world). It's like a general racial slur for white people that live here (I am a white dude). In this instance it was a left field insult from someone I don't know on a forum, surely easy to ignore and move on. Instead your name was seared into my memory as someone who called me a redneck without provocation. It didn't sit well with me but I will forgive you seeing you have no idea. I am really funny, you should see some of the very silly decks I build and plays I make.

I really have to visit your country. I had no idea there was such an efficient language.

Italy also has some kurwas. When I was driving around there last month, I saw a road sign in Italian warning about dangerous curvas ahead. Luckily, they were probably busy elsewhere that day.

I drove from Rome to Florence and back, visiting a bunch of hill towns in Umbria and Tuscany. Too many to name, but you know them :) Loved it.

Every time I see yondar's name, it always makes me think of Yolanda Vega. I still infatuated with his avatar though. A nut with feet! Who wudda thunk it?!?!

I wanted to take a stab at this thread. Based on my first post, I actually started down the enchantment route similar to Sl33p but since he posted a list already, I quickly switched gears and came up with this pile of janky token crap.

1 x Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
3 x Blisterpod
3 x Fatal Push
3 x Carrier Thrall
3 x Winding Constrictor
3 x Hidden Stockpile
1 x Oath of Ajani
3 x Weaponcraft Enthusiast
2 x Nantuko Husk
2 x Aethersphere Harvester
2 x Collective Effort
2 x Anguished Unmaking
1 x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
2 x From Beyond
2 x Sram's Expertise
1 x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
1 x Verdurous Gearhulk
1 x Call for Unity
3 x Aether Hub
4 x Evolving Wilds
2 x Canopy Vista
2 x Hissing Quagmire
2 x Shambling Vent
4 x Plains
4 x Forest
4 x Swamp


So it's an attrition token deck that aims to stall until it can create an overwhelming board presence. Call for Unity is just a slow card and mainly here to conform to the Revolt requirement (7 total). Still, assuming you can grind your way to where this deck will win it's typical games, the card can actually get some use (as I posted already in this thread, Unity + Beyond + Stockpile is a slow engine in itself) and I actually wouldn't mind the 2nd copy for draw chance (although I would be just fine if this was the 2nd copy of Oath of Ajani). There are a few outside ways to win like Nantuko Husk but since I've recently removed Key to the City, it's now more a stabilizer and Revolt trigger which is why it was cut back to 2 copies. This could probably even be Yahenni, Undying Partisan which would have a slightly better synergy with Winding Constrictor.

The deck lacks artifact removal (which is just poor building) and room should be found for something like Fragmentize but we're attempting to lean on Unmaking, Push and the sorcery speed Collective Effort. Although Anguished Unmaking covers a huge variety of situations, the life loss can be an issue because of how this deck works in the meta (why Harvester got the nod - aggro tech!).

The deck also has no draw effects (it did have Key to the City for a while because of Nantuko Husk which at least gave it something but it got cut) which can be problematic when trying to stabilize since we need gas to do so. Tireless Tracker could be an option but things like Read the Bones with life loss are issues. Since the deck is slow and can often rebuild better than most, I also wonder if things like Yahenni's Expertise should be considered (stabilizing and advantage?)? Having said that, maybe the Key and Husk are still good alternative win conditions and should make it back in which would at least give the deck something to draw against.

There's also several double costed cards in a 3 color deck which makes the mana a nightmare. I'm still not happy with where it's at but it's playable atm.

Thoughts?

No comments or feedback? I was expecting "elk's deck makes me want to be a parent so I can name my kids elk!".

All joking aside, who's testing all these decks and giving feedback? Are only a handful being selected and run (based on feedback/voting)? When are results supposed to be listed?

The deadline for posting a decklist is the beginning of the PT, so somewhen on Friday. Then there will be a week to vote them, and it is open to anyone who want to test them, since the platform should not influence it. I will give more details about how to vote and give feedbacks when i will open the poll, but every decklist posted here will take part of it.
Maybe a week for posting and another week for voting is too much, but at least this week i wanted to give to both deckbuilders and voters enough time to test them, since many people will be also busy in testing a deck for the tourneys.

Too restrictive. How about just "Blink deck" so people aren't tied to those colors?

Just UX flash or WX blink, etc..., imo. Leave it to the designer to decide what X is, if anything. The last was too restrictive in terms of colors (it worked that time, but it was a fluke, and hard to do again with broader themes).
