My luls, you have them all. And here I've been all proud of myself for my "do nothing" Mindshrieker designs- I woke up, looked at the forum and found a deck that does less than nothing. You sir, deserve a medal, and another if you manage to play Tibalt in this deck.

Have you considered running Tibalt?

Snapcaster Mage is the best card of all time. How do you deal?

Have you considered running Tibalt?

Does the pope **** in the woods? (Yes, yes he does).
Does this deck even do anything?



I don't believe so. But I do find the idea pretty funny. Could consider adding Nicol Bolas as a 1-of. So when someone asks if you have any way to win, you can just be like yea just got one
Looks like he has win cons in there. Bonus points for grinding out a game 1 win against whiny bitches with 45 seconds remaining.
The infinite turns interaction seems very slow. Win-cons in this deck should probably come in the form of lands, either Bloodhall or Drownyard. Still looks too slow to compete, especially if you don't draw into Bonfire.

All jokes aside, your win con is casting Pillar of Flame 10 times?

How many Bonfire of the Damneds in one game does it take in one game to drive your opponent insane? Runic Repetition + mystic retrieval + arcane melee(s) + Bonfire of the Damned = sad opponent.

Infinite turns? I must be missing something. Temporal Mastery gets exiled after it is cast, and it doesn't have flashback so you can't get it with Runic Repititon and it isn't in the grave for Mystic Retrival....Please enlighten me if i'm wrong, but I just don't see it.

Why? You can play it as blue, too.

Ah, totally forgot about the exile clause. Ya, the more I look over this deck, the more dissapointed I am with it. Bonfire can't do it all. Then again, it could just be a troll deck from Mathias, as he laments the loss of Mana Leak and his beloved cantrips.

I've been trying to cheer him up with Xerox love, maybe the new instant-speed Mulch and Izzet/Azorius Charms will help.
