[Decklist] You Can't Lose v1.0

I've always wanted to make a deck based on Platinum Angel. This is that deck. About an hour ago I just spent about $80 on eBay for the cards I'm missing for the deck... so this isn't the final version.



[Decklist] You Can't Lose v1.0

Creatures
---------
4 Platinum Angel
4 Goblin Welder
1 Phage the Untouchable
1 Anger

Control
-------
4 Pact of Negation
4 Slaughter Pact
2 Confiscate

Card Drawing
------------
1 Final Fortune
1 Last Chance
1 Warrior's Oath
4 Careful Study
3 Deep Analysis
1 Wheel of Fortune
1 Demonic Tutor
1 Memory Jar

Other
-----
1 Lich's Mirror
4 Copy Artifact
2 Necromancy

Mana
----
4 Chrome Mox
1 Mox Diamond
1 Mana Crypt
1 Sol Ring
1 Mana Vault
1 Grim Monolith
4 Underground Sea
4 Volcanic Island
3 Badlands
1 Bazaar of Baghdad

First I should explain that none of the Decklists that I post on this blog will contain the Power 9. I doubt I'll ever drop the money down to ever get them. I should also say that some of my decks will be limited to the cards that I have available. I have a single Bazaar of Baghdad listed because I only own one copy.

The idea behind the deck is simple: Abuse the Platinum Angel's ability as much as possible. Pact of Negation, Slaughter Pact, Final Fortune,
Last Chance, and
Warrior's Oath all do this. There is even a Phage the Untouchable for giggles.

Like I said, I haven't tested the deck out yet, but I'm betting isn't less effective than I hope it will be... but that's OK. This isn't competitive Magic. My decks are designed to have fun while playing them. Win condition? Drop an angel or two down, copy it a couple times, take a few extra turns and swing for the win.

Realistic? Probably not.

But when it does work, it'll be oh so sweet.
