Hello everyone, and welcome to Block of the Week 9. Last week was actually 8, but I had a fail.
For all the new participants, the rules:
I name three blocks, or two and a core set, and using only cards from those sets, you make a deck (Following my banned list.) Minimum Sixty Card decks, and you get bonus points for a sideboard (15 exactly).
I judge next Week.
That's about it. One entry per person, so if you make two decks and post them both, please list which one you are entering.
Last week's winner:
Ethral. Again. http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/132623
All I can say is this looks annoying as hell to play against, which gives it bonus points :). Plenty of win-cons, lots of Wrath effects, and a nice design structure leads this deck to victory. Good Job.
Blocks/Sets you may use cards from:
Mirage Block (Mirage, Visions, Weatherlight)
Kamigawa Block (Champions, Betrayers, Saviors)
Lorwyn - Shadowmoor Block (Lorwyn, Morningtide, Shadowmoor, Eventide)
Cadaverous Bloom: Strictly less fun than other pieces of ProsBloom, and a piece had to go.
Vampiric Tutor: I was trying to think of a way I could get around banning this, but realized it HAD to go.
Glimpse of Nature: Combo-Rific to the max.
Umezawa's Jitte: Reallllllllly high value > Mana cost ratio. No Jitte for you.
That's actually it. I will regret leaving Mystical Tutor and Bitterblossom Legal, but neither are banned.
Good luck, and happy brewing. Judging sometime, but I will be going on vacation soon, so no promises as to when.
