This thread is for discussion of this week's Top Decks article, which goes live Thursday morning on magicthegathering.com.
here's another deck that could be tier one. what do you guys think of blue/white artifact control? I use counters, ratchet bombs, tumble magnets and days to stall early game. The two mages fish up chalices, voltaic keys, and contagion engines, to be used in combination with lux cannon. My finishers are celestial colonnade, argent sphinx, wurmcoil engine and steel helkite. 
Give me Caw and Tezzeret, take the only tree that's left, stuff it up the hole in your metagame.
I played naoki in round 5 of day one, he definately got me a few times by representing mana leak! He handed me my first match loss of the tournament, and when I saw the decklist later, I thought "man, i got played!"
Vincent Lemoine's deck - Koth of the Hammer, with two more in the sideboard, but only three Mountains in the entire deck? I realize that there are a bunch of fetchlands, but still!  Kill the Mountains, and let the Koth stay in play?  Certainly his ultimate doesn't scare you much!
Thanks to everyone who helped with the design of the plane of Golamo in the Great Designer Search 2!
