Standard U/R Destructive Force


Hi guys! I am actually planning to put up a section in my blog for my home-brewed deck ideas and I would like to name it the Mad Scientist section ^_^. Anyway, I have lesser time to play MTG for the next 2 months so I am hoping that some people will actually try to build this deck and post comments on its performance.

The deck is basically, post-mirrodin besieged destructive force budget deck. Anyway, I think because of the price of Jace the Mindsculptor, any blue deck without it will seem like a budget deck. ^_^

The concept of the deck is actually quite simple. Play semi-control in the early game and build up mana with your artifacts and lands. Then play destructive force cleaning up the board and disabling your opponent, while you still have mana because of your artifacts. Your creatures are actually Frost titan and Wurmcoil Engine. Frost Titan is actually very good in this strategy, since post-destructive force, the opponent will need 3 mana before ha/she can get rid of the titan, at that time, the game is actually over. The Wurmcoil Engine gives you options for racing with early game pressure. But the engine can usually be easier to cast because of its mana cost (colorless mana can come from your everflowing chalices).

Anyway, here is the list for my Red Blue (U/R, UR, RU or what ever you may call it) Post-MBS Destructive Force Deck.

2 Frost Titan
2 Wurmcoil Engine
3 Sea Gate Oracle

4 Lightning Bolt
4 Mana Leak
3 Spell Pierce
2 Into the Roil

4 Preordain
2 Pyroclasm
3 Destructive Force

4 Everflowing Chalice
3 Sphere of the Suns

4 Scalding Tarn
3 Terramorphic Expanse
3 Tectonic Edge
8 Islands
6 Mountains

4 Spreading Seas
1 Ratchet Bomb
1 Pyroclasm
3 Jace Beleren
2 Flashfreeze
2 Brittle Effigy
2 Negate

Notes: You can actually user Slagstorm to replace Pyroclasm. Or run a combination of Slagstorms and Pyroclasm.
