[Decklist] UG Free Spell Deck

This deck is pretty straight forward. You know how I keep on talking about how I hate decks that take your opponents out of the game? Well, this is one of them. What can I say? I like free spells and I like Mill Decks. I couldn't help myself when I threw this together.



[Decklist] UG Free Spell Deck

Creatures
---------
4 Cloud of Faeries
1 Palinchron

Other
------------
4 Brain Freeze
3 Snap
1 Frantic Search
4 Treachery
4 Time Spiral
1 Mind's Desire
4 Tormod's Crypt
1 Fastbond
1 Candelabra of Tawnos

Mana
----
4 Wild Growth
4 Utopia Sprawl
4 Fertile Ground
4 Tropical Island
4 Breeding Pool
6 Forest
6 Island

There isn't much too it. Cast a bunch of spells, cast a Brain Freeze, and nuke their graveyard.

What you might not see if you've never messed with free spells before, is how fast the deck actually works. With one of the enchant lands, a single Cloud of Faeries, a single Snap, you can cast any spell in the deck on turn 2.

Storms of 10+ are very common. If your opponent doesn't have an answer for it (an early Strip Mine or a counter spell) the game will be over quickly.

If they don't have an answer the game will be over quickly... and it's kind of funny. Because it's funny removing half their deck from the game at a time, is the only reason I play it. The funny wears off after a couple times and I usually dismantle it soon after.

But it's good while it lasts.


(Sure, it would be a lot easier to add some black mana and a couple Tendrils of Agony but what fun is that?)
