This part of my site is devoted to my decks. All of my decks have either been created by me, my best friend, or copied from a magazine or book. My site features many deck themes and gives a brief explanation of what the deck is about. If you like the deck and want to see a more detailed explanation of what cards are in the deck just click on the link that says click here to see a sample deck. The sample decks I am showing are not exactly what you have to put in your decks. You can build the decks however you want.









  1. Burn

    This deck is a creatureless deck that uses red direct damage to kill your oppenent and their creatures. Many good spells to put in are ones like Fanning the Flames and Blaze. Other good spells are ones that cost less like Incinerate, Shock, and Volcanic hammer. If you make this deck make sure that you distribute the high costing and the low costing spells evenly. This deck should contain about 20-24 mountains. Remeber to kill the creatures not just your opponent. This is a medium speed deck.

  2. Drain Life

    This is a deck I thought of. It uses spells that spells like Drain Life, Vampiric Touch, Ebony Charm, Corrupt, and Touch of Death to deal damage to your oppenent while you gain life. Back this with some black regenerating creatures like Drudge Skeleton and others like that plus a few Dark Rituals and you have a pretty good deck. You should put about 20-24 Swamps in this deck. This is medium speed deck.

  3. Rogue Elephant Deck

    This deck uses creatures like Rogue Elephant, Plant Elemental,and Primeval Force. These creatures are big creatures that cost extremely little. The catch is that you have to sacrifice land in play to cast them. This may sound bad but when you have a first turn 3/3 it is good. To get the land back add in some Cartogrophers and Harvest Wurms. Also Thundering Wurm and Fallow Wurm go in this deck. Put in some Giant Growths and maybe even an Overrun to add some extra damage. This is a very fast deck and requires about 20 land.

  4. Goblin

    This deck is mostly self explanatory. Just take your best goblins and put them in, but make sure that they do not cost more then three because this is a weenie deck. Try to put in four Goblin King's if you can because you can have all four in play because they are lords not legends. Put some red direct damage in and a Relentless Assault or two. You can also add in some spells of your choice like Giant Strength and Goblin Grenade. This is a fast deck and requires about 20 Mountains.

  5. Weenie

    A weenie deck is just a deck with creatures that cost less than two. The object of a weenie deck is speed. You want to overpower your oppenent before he gets a lot of creatures out. A weenie deck can be all five colors. The most common colors are Green and White. You can have the colors either seperate or together. Green is good because it has spells like Giant Growth and have some good creatures. Green is also good because you can add in Recycle and Aluren to give you a big advantage. Recycle lets you draw a card whenever you play a card and Aluren allows you to play creatures with casting cost less then three without paying the casting cost. White has the most good weenie creatures and spells like Warriors Honor. Blue has counterspells, black has creature destruction, and red has direct damage. These are fast decks and reqiure about 20 land.

  6. Merfolk

    This deck is a blue deck with Merfolk. As I said to do with my goblin deck, just add in your best merfolk. Try to put in four Lord of Atlantis and like a Goblin King they are lords so you can have four in play. Put in some counterspells and other interupt spells too. Then just add some spells of your choice. This is a fast deck and requires about 20 Islands.

    A spike deck is just a deck of spikes. Spikes are creatures found in Tempest, Stronghold, and Exodus. They come into play with +1/+1 counters on them.

  8. Pestilence

    This is a deck that uses Pestilence to kill your oppenent and their creatures. Pestilence is an enchantment that deals 1 damage for each black mana you pay. The way to get around dealing damage to yourself is to use a Circle of Protection: Black. For your creatures just use creatures that have protection from black so that they won't be killed. Add in some other things like Urza's Armor and Worship to help you win. This is a medium speed deck and requires about 12 Swamps and 12 Plains.

  9. Counterspell

    This deck can also be called a Permission deck because it literaly makes your opponent ask you for permission to play spells. Use spells like Counterspell, Forbid, Mana Leak, Dismiss, and many others to counter or your opponents spells. I think that this deck is one of the most annoying to play against because it is so hard to play spells. Put in some good card drawing spells but make sure that they are instants and play them at the end of your opponent's turn. Add in 2 or 3 big flying creatures to kill your opponent, but do not play them until you have enough mana to counter your opponents spells when you play the creature.If you want you can add in 4 Saphire Meddalions to make your spells easier to play. This is a slow deck and reuires about 22-24 Islands.

    This deck is a five color deck based on the creature type Slivers. Slivers are found in Stronghold and Tempest. They share abbilities with other slivers. Like the Winged Sliver gives all of the other slivers in play flying. The best card in this is a Sliver Queen it is hard to get out because it costs one of each color mana but it is good. It is a 7/7 that if you pay two colorless mana produces a 1/1 sliver token. Plus the Sliver Queen also gets the abilities of all the slivers.

  13. Pumpable

    This is a deck that uses Dwarven Nomad and Dwarven Warrior to make creatures with power 2 or less unblockable until the end of the turn. Now you might say that 2 damage isn't a lot but here's the catch. Use creatures that are able to be pumped up like Storm Shaman, Sandstone Warrior, Furnace Spirit, Flame Spirit, and any other red pumpable creatures you have with power 2 or less. You can do this because once you tap either the Dwarven Nomad or Dwarven Warrior your creature beccomes unblockable until the end of the turn. Then pump up your creature and there is no way he can be blocked. Follow this up with some red direct damage and some spells like seething anger and your deck is complete.
