Help me build my deck using YOUR favourite cards

Hey everyone.  As I previously posted I am a returning player to Magic after a long long hiatus (since revised at least).  I am wanting to build some decks, of each colour.  I am curious what YOUR favourite card is of EACH colour and one artifact.  Please link if you know how to so I can read the details of the card.

If you feel your favourite card needs one other to pair it with in order to make it work please post that card as well.

This should be fun and I thank you in advance for you insight into building a great deck.
W: Knight Exemplar
U: Traumatize (Sorta needs a Mill style deck built around it)
B: Animate Dead + Entomb = Any creature in your deck on the field on turn 2
R: Pyromancer Ascension
G: Glimpse of Nature is crazy with a deck of 1 cost elves like Heritage Druid and Nettle Sentinel
A: Door to Nothingness I use it with Axebane Guardian and a host of walls that let you draw. IE- Wall of Omens
W - Reconnaissance. I think this card's ballerosity speaks for itself.

U - Morphling Shapeshifters are my favorite creature type, and he used to be the iconic shapeshifter before he was M10ed and Baneslayered to death.

B - Nether Traitor. Really just love this effect in general, and this one is one of my favorite iterations. 

R - Grip of Chaos. Personally I like pairing it with Avarice Totem and/or Kaervek the Merciless, but it's awesome regardless.

G - Words of Wilding - Why draw cards when you can have bears? Also fun with Fecundity.

A - Explorer's Scope. Such a perfectly designed card.

B: Animate Dead + Entomb = Any creature in your deck on the field on turn 2


Zammm = Batman.

It's my sig in a box

Copy effects work like a photocopy machine: you get a copy of the 'naked' card, NOT of what's on it.

Funny story: InQuest Magazine (I think it was InQuest) had an oversized Chaos Orb which I totally rooked someone into allowing into a (non-sanctioned) game. I had a proxy card that was a Mountain with "Chaos Orb" written on it. When I played it, my opponent cried foul: Him: "WTF? a Proxy? no-one said anything about Proxies. Do you even own an actual Chaos Orb?" Me: "Yes, but I thought it would be better to use a Proxy." Him: "No way. If you're going to put a Chaos Orb in your deck you have to use your actual Chaos Orb." Me: "*Sigh*. Okay." I pulled out this huge Chaos Orb and placed it on the table. He tried to cry foul again but everyone else said he insisted I use my actual Chaos Orb and that was my actual Chaos Orb. I used it, flipped it and wiped most of his board. Unsurprisingly, that only worked once and only because everyone present thought it was hilarious.
My DM on Battleminds:
no, see i can kill defenders, but 8 consecutive crits on a battlemind, eh walk it off.

Hi guys! So, I'm a sort of returning player to Magic. I say sort of because as a child I had two main TCG's I liked. Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. Some of my friends branched off in to Magic, and I bought two pre-made decks just to kind of fit in. Like I said, Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon were what I really knew how to play. I have a extensive knowledge of deck building in those two TCG's. However, as far as Magic is concerned, I only ever used those two pre made decks. I know how the game is played, and I know general things, but now I want to get in the game for real. I want to begin playing it as a regular. My question is, are all cards ever released from the time of the inception of this game until present day fair game in a deck? Or are there special rules? Are some cards forbidden or restricted? Thanks guys, and I will gladly accept ANY help lol.
I have the same problem with women.

And that's why you should never, ever call RP Jesus on being a troll, because then everyone else playing along gets outed, too, and the thread goes back to being boring.

See, this is why RPJesus should be in charge of the storyline. The novel line would never have been cancelled if he had been running the show. Specifically the Slobad and Geth's Head talkshow he just described.

Not only was that an obligatory joke, it was an on-topic post that still managed to be off-topic due to thread derailment. RP Jesus does it again folks.

Seriously, that was amazing. I laughed my *ss off. Made my day, and I just woke up.

So that even the decks that don't run it run it to deal with it? Isn't that like the definition of format warping?

The most common answer is that they are what RPJesus would call "[Debutantes avert your eyes]ing."

I condone the use of the word Kafkaesque. However, I'm presentely ambivalent. I mean, that can't be serious, right? We're April 1st, right? They didn't mod RPJesus for off-topic discussion when the WHOLE THREAD IS OFF-TOPIC, right? Right.

That's what RPJesus tends to do. That's why I don't think he's a real person, but some Magic Card Archive Server sort of machine, that is programmed to react to other posters' comments with obscure cards that do in fact exist, but somehow missed by even the most experienced Magic players. And then come up with strange combos with said cards. All of that is impossible for a normal human to do given the amount of time he does it and how often he does it. He/It got me with Light of Sanction, which prompted me to go to RQ&A to try and find if it was even possible to do combat damage to a creature I control (in light that Mark of Asylum exists).

Blue players get all the overpowerered cards like JTMS. I think it's time that wizards gave something to people who remember what magic is really about: creatures.
Initially yes, Wizards was married to blue. However, about a decade ago they had a nasty divorce, and a few years after that they began courting the attention of Green. Then in Worldwake they had a nasty affair with their ex, but as of Innistrad, things seem to have gotten back on track, and Wizards has even proposed.
You are my favorite. Yes you. And moments like this make it so. Thank you RPJesus for just being you.
On what flavor text fits me:

10/10. Amazing.
Keep em' coming guys/gals, this is awesome.
Another round:
W: Ghostly Prison (Propaganda also works)
U: Arcanis the Omnipotent
B: Massacre Wurm
R: Boil Cool because many, many tournament players always use blue
G: Elvish Piper Best to use with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and Progenitus
A: Coat of Arms Great for any tribe deck (such as Elves, Goblins, Merfolk, Vampires, Humans, Myrs, etc.)


From a multiplayer perspective:

R: Furnace of Rath
B: Exsanguinate
U: Prosperity
W: Oath of Lieges
G: Rites of Flourishing
other:  Teferi's Puzzle Box

I enjoy accelerating games; ideally my decks cooperate and I can take better advantage of the above cards than my opponents can!

A shout out to Gaming Grounds in Kent, Ohio and Gamers N Geeks in Mobile, Alabama. for all your preparation needs. - why prepping is useful, from one who has been there.
R [C] Furnace of Rath [/C] Its been posted already but that burn effect :D
B [C] Victim of night [/C] Should really read hard removal on all but about 400 creatures
U [C] Psychic Spiral [/C] This card alone is good late game but in the right combo it can be devistating in a mill deck
W [C] Absolute Law [/C] Great protection from burn decks that I always seem to end up fighting
G Not really a favorite card but ability. Scavange if done right can nearly eleminate the need for mana ramping
Multicolor [C] Azor's Elocutors [/C] Decent mana cost for a quick win con
A [C] Codex Shredder[/C] Low cost contenious mill, yes please and thank you

Mill decks are what I like to play. Mainly cause everyone claims they are not top teir and then gets royally pissed when half their land is in the graveyard.
W:Cloudshift + Fiend Hunter
U:Augur of Bolas
B:Tormented Soul I give him Ring of Xathrid with my favorite red card (below) also Dimir Cipher abilities!
R:Curse of Stalked Prey nice for unblockables and trample ;)
G:Champion of Lambholt and Increasing Savagery
A:Conjurer's Closet because I love to flicker
You are Red/Blue!
You are Red/Blue!
Take The Magic Dual Colour Test - Beta today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.
You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
W: Gore Vassal
G: Scryb Ranger
U: Arcane Denial
B: Garza's Assassin
R: Faithless Looting
Artifact: Expedition Map Because I love getting my crazy lands like Maze of Ith.

A lot of cards I like because they are versatile or have an additional mode or use that isn't obvious at first, like countering your own spells with arcane denial. Also I have about a dozen favorite red cards :P
W: Spirit Mantle
U: Rhystic Study
B: Bloodchief Ascension
R: Inferno Titan
G: Aura Gnarlid
Artifact: Crucible of Worlds
Multicolor: Wayfaring Temple
Land: Glacial Chasm

Most of the cards I mentioned have hidden modes. You can put Spirit Mantle on Tahngarth, Talruum Hero for instance. (Even better if you give him deathtouch as well.)
