So, lets get this started.

Tourney decks are fun... if you like to race a clock.

So, who here plays casual.

You know, decks with fun (and sometimes garbage) creatures, wacky spells (I'm looking at you Warpworld), and lots of theme based antics!

I personally would rather have a fun time playing themes then winning on turn 0. Opinions?

I've got a deck based entirely on Confusion in the Ranks. The only card worth more than $3 in the deck is Squee, and he's not even a necessary card. The deck basically steals your permanents while allowing me to return my creatures back to take more, or leave you with useless cards that won't help you. Bronze Bombshell gets its use in, since it can steal an artifact or a creature, and then it explodes in your face and makes you take 7.

lol Norin the Wary ^_^ And Affinity hit the tournaments pretty damn quickly if I remember, Ravagers spiked to $30 shortly after their release until they were banned from block. Tooth and Nails were busted, but I've noticed they're a bit slow and perceptible to speed decks. They failed in standard play at the time due to Onslaught Tribal decks running sets of Clamps at the very least. Affinity ftw though.

I was going to make a Scarecrow based deck, but Kyler kept telling me it'd be 100% useless (though I thought it'd be fun). I've just never gotten around to it... and I'd have to take apart my broken artifact deck for it...

I've tried doing Scarecrows, and the problem is that they are all colour-dependent, but all colourless themselves. Which means that without a Reaper King on the field most of them would do nothing.

False,

just avoid the colour dependent Scarecrows and whore the broken Scarecrones + Reaper Razz

So like, Scuttlemutt lol. There's really not enough for a full deck without using a few changelings.

Ya there is Sad

I made a Scarecrow deck with 32 scarecrows, no Changelings and it works very well.

Basically you rely on chainbreakers and stuff like that early on, build up to Reaper.

Or alternaivly, you can use coloured animate lands.
