What do you think about this deck? Comments are always welcome.

I expected more interaction here, no comments? Isn't this a cool deck?
I thought this could be a place to talk about Extended decks to win, even if the deck doesn't have an American cereal as its name...

What are the important differences between this deck and Three Deuce? They seem to share a lot of important features.

I would love to try a deck like this in the next PTQ here in Grand Rapids, MI. But the last two MI PTQs have been heavy blue. Are the beats in this fast enough to beat that? Is it the mana denial?

Wax/Wane is strong in the format, because its rarely dead. But this deck doesn't look like it can do battle against Donate. You have no search or thinning - so you may never see enough anti enchantment. After that there are very few must counters - only the orb hustles the blue player.

By Loser on Thursday, January 03, 2002 - 05:42 pm:

did you look at the deck De?
4 seal of cleansing
3 wax/wane
4 swords (makes them find fire/ice)
2 'geddon
3 orb
2 furnace
4 wasteland
4 port
2 more furnace
4 pyros
4 bottle gnomes
2 choke

nope... not much of the "hustles" a blue player, right?

the deck is obviously good, but the threshold geddon deck that is becoming semipopular is taking its place.

Do Dentinho has less problems with mana screw (2-color), and focuses on control via mana advantage, and 3-2 is more beatdown-driven.
Wax/Wane, Orb, Armageddon, and Seal are maindeck tricks agains Trix. In a Donate metagame I would choose Abolish or even Elvish Lyrist. 8 counters won't win the race, I believe.
I think this is a very solid and fun deck (looks like a mix of Prison, 3-2 and Erhnamgeddon), and it beat most "Decks to Beat", see for yourself @ sideboard.com.
I think that this deck is a good choice for your next PTQ. Will you please respect the Brazilian deckbuilders and cll it by its name: "Do Dentinho".
Keep sharing ideas, thanks!

uhhh... how does this win if it somehow runs out of beatdown options like going against oath? looks like a cheap old beatdown that does not do much more than sometimes destroy all lands or possibly remove an artifact or enchantment. my millstone deck could currently beat this easily. beats me why this did so well. by the way, anyone willing to translate the portugese name of this deck to english?

do Dentinho is the name of a popular breakfast cereal in brazil, very similar to "captain crunch" which, ironically, is the name of a pre-odyssey b/w/g junk-like rogue deck invented by some guy "Aaron" in new york. do Dentinho is basically a land destruction deck which needs some tithes.

By Guapeton on Wednesday, January 16, 2002 - 02:07 pm:

Im afaraid ur wrong on your cereal theory enron... Im pretty sure Dentinho is the name of the guy who created the deck, a friend of the guy who piloted to the finals...
