By now, you've probably gone through several test runs with "The Deck" and have nodded in silent approval at its mix of power and flexibility. You've probably tried to personalize your own version, too, at least for casual Apprentice play, or maybe a toned down version from what you have just for your playgroup. And you probably loved it, as the very first generation of sadistic control players always have.
