the Naya Homebrew can often literally cripple the opponent with Destructive Force
It's also a big of an indictment of the last few years...
I reluctantly have to agree that it's a varied meta at the moment, if not a cheap one. Ascension is fairly budget, and it has pushed Time Warp to over 20 tix online, but they're cheaper on paper.
If you're on MTGO check out the Free Events via PDCMagic and Gatherling.
Other games you should try:DC Universe Online - action-based MMO. Free to play. Surprisingly well-designed combat and classes.
Planetside 2 - Free to play MMO-meets-FPS and the first shooter I've liked in ages.Simunomics - Free-to-play economy simulation game.
I actually playtested against this deck a fair amount (albeit after the tournament) and found it remarkably difficult to wrap my head around. There never seemed like anything worth spending countermagic on ... and then I would die with three Mana Leaks in my hand. Or I would underrate the card quality of the deck, only to fold when it ran out what seemed like a "real" card (say an opportune Oblivion Ring or Brave the Elements).

I really like the Soul Sisters deck and I reckon it would be pretty cheap to put together aside from the Elspeth's (what do they go for now anyway).Unfortunately Elspeth is now banned online so guess we can only play this on paper.
After yesterday's patch there was a bug in the code for Elspeth. Since they couldn't patch it immediately they did what can be hotfixed: ban the card from tournaments.
Today they patched and fixed it so the ban was lifted.
