Hi Dragonwater000, I've been trying to make a standard legal Blue/Green deck which has evolved to include other partial colours with the dual lands and farseek making this possible. I'll list the deck, then the idea;
Ok so the initial idea looks simple, get a huge creature out very cheaply by putting cards in to my own graveyard, the clever part is how fast and efficiently this is achieved.
The threats, Ghoultree, Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm, Wreath of Geists, 14 in total making the probability of getting one high and any is a problem your opponent has to deal with instantly.
THE COMBO The stand out card for performance is Chronic Flooding, originally designed to be played on an opponent’s land to mill, played on my own makes for a hefty graveyard very quickly, combo'ed with an arbor elf to untap the land it occupies then a turn three 5/5 Boneyard Wurm is very possible.
The Skaabs have a triple effect, first they discard cards from my deck to my graveyard, second they are a chump blocker designed to die, third they are an additional creature in my graveyard. As the casting effect can be seen as a hindrance they aren't bad stats wise, the Screeching Skaab 2/1 for (1U) is an efficient two drop, the Armored Skaab 1/4 for (2U) is great defensively.
The Deathrite Shaman speaks for itself, with huge discards lands and spells are going to go, the Shaman can make use of them.
Disciple of Bolas, I'm on the fence with this card, with a huge graveyard Ghoultree is always played for a single (g), dropping a Disciple in the same turn and targeting the Tree makes for a 10 card draw and 10 life gain right at the time when it's needed.
Ghor-Clan Rampager, tokens can be a problem, especially with the lack of trample in this deck, the Rampager helps with that, the +4/+4 on any threat with trample and your opponent will be throwing his creatures in its way. The dual use of ending up in the graveyard to boost my threats being an additional use.
Farseek, with only 16 lands the decks main flaw, and a huge one, is getting mana. I choose to play this way as the deck can engage with two lands, so in my opinion, it’s worth the risk. Lands in my graveyard only benefit the Shaman and generally is considered an unavoidable waste, further adding to the reason for only 16 lands, making Farseek essential.
Faithless Looting, an early way of discarding creatures that are not going to be useful and deck cycling. Has a dual use of having flashback if it is discarded or fodder for the Shaman.
DECK STRENGTHS The efficiency and speed at which a huge threat hits the table is excellent, most decks that play for an early big creature do so by going for broke, the strength of this deck is its curve, sure my big threats are going to be killed, doing so adds to the power of the next big threat, to which there are plenty.
DECK WEAKNESS Protecting threats, with the amount of control/destroy there is, it's always going to be a problem. I tried the idea and came to the conclusion that any method of protection has to be in the form of a creature, as anything that is discarded needs to add to the decks cause. An Elguard Shieldmate was useful against control heavy decks and a good sideboard card for this purpose, however costing (3U) it seems to come too late. Ring of Evos Isle was a consideration but not being a creature was to one dimensional. Trample, although Ghor-Clan Rampager helps with this problem, it can still be a thorn. Kessig Wolf Run is a possibility; the problem being running only 16 lands, cutting in to this for trample can cause mana problems on an already strained department, a possible sideboard card for creature heavy decks if it is too much of a problem.
THE ENJOYMENT FACTOR Well who doesn't like running huge green beasts, the lack of protection or tricks to counter my opponents strategy can seem to naive for this to be considered a decent deck to enjoy, however the sheer speed and numbers of threats make overwhelming your opponent likely and above all else, so much fun!
It's also annoying that your supporting this... He needs to move this blog to the forums. It's not a blog, and your replies could also benefit from the forums. Again, this isn't a blog, it shouldn't be in the blog list. It just bumps down the other blogs that people work hard on creating. [Report]
Saw the blog when it was first put up and shrugged it off. Then i saw the comments today at least 5 times longer than the blog and the comment,"are you implying i didnt work hard on this." just made my day [Report]
a really fun combo is Ooze flux + Evolve creatures. Use some +1/+1 counters on those creatures to create an ooze, which will trigger evolve again. Repeat. This combo is also good with undying creatures, so they'll never die. [Report]
guys does it really matter were someone posts it just makes it harder for people looking for specific posts may not find them as u say there not in the forum as it should be. dont we all play magic so as to flip the middle finger to society? i dunno either so maybe we relax a bit and go with it i am sure if its wrong someone will tell that person to move to the proper place ie forum or whatevs. i think reporting someone cause they didnt post they're blog in the place which u think it should be is a lame punk ass move chill and worry about ur own [email protected] the moderators do their jobs thats why their there. [Report]
It is important, some people work really hard on their blogs, and they just pretty much go unnoticed when they aren't on the blog list. This isn't even 500 words, which is a requirement. This probably took about 5 minutes, and others spend hours on their blogs. Would you enjoy it if you spent hours working for a company, but all that work went unnoticed because someone did something that took less time, and wasn't even close to being as good as what you did?

=) Rakdos The thing is Pigglet, this is obviously in the wrong place, English obviously isn't the posters native language. Instead of pointing this out you offer a completly arrogant, one word, dismissive answer. Don't worry Dragonwater000, the replys show were not all arrogants trying to police this place, you are welcome here, you just post this in the wrong place. Have you tried my deck? You will love it. [Report]
I leave blogs alone for a month. tsk. Anyway, this is definitely a question for the deck-building section of the forums, not to be too harsh, but adie we have rules not only posted in the requirements for writing a blog, and to be frank, the blogs aren't so much for discussion anymore, as much as people doing contests and deck-techs. Our moderator has no power over the blogs, and thus it is the communities duty to self-police. Though it was fairly harsh, it does need to be done, and I would not be terribly displeased if this was unpublished and sent to the forums. As for you... If your willing to post that on a blog which will probably never be responded to, good on you. And people do understand: The only power to delete blogs is with davesters, who has an actual shop to watch. Reporting is roughly as useful as throwing pebbles at a bullet proof glass shop. I'm bad at analogies, I will now go and end myself.
***I'm really new to this game. I've been to two FNM in the last 2 weeks and everyone has been nice and helped/given tips on what my deck should consist of. They always tell me to try to keep it at 60 but it's hard. I would appreciate if you looked at my deck. I really want to become good and maybe be one of the chicks to go to the MTG Finals someday. I could really use some tips & help. PS: I like Tokens & populating. I would also want to do something with Acidic Slime. ~ [Report]
