With the recent rash of 'I 'heart' Keeper' posts, I figured I'd post a deck that I've been working on conceptually for awhile. This isn't tuned; in fact it isn't even tested. But I think it has promise.


4x Nimble Mongoose
4x Blurred Mongoose
4x Meddling Mage
4x Call of the Herd
2x Mystic Enforcer


4x Tithe
4x Gush
4x Force of Will
3x Armageddon
3x Disrupt
1x Ancestral Recall
1x Time Walk
1x Mystical Tutor
1x Balance
4x Land Grant


1x Black Lotus
1x Mox Sapphire
1x Mox Emerald
1x Mox Pearl
4x Tropical Island
4x Tundra
1x Savannah
3x Island


4x Swords to Plowshares
4x Samite Ministration
3x Compost
4x Seal of Cleansing

I'm really worried about the mana base and the sideboard, but the creature base mostly ignores Abyss and targeted removal spells. Another problem is Disrupt; it isn't as effective as it should be. However, I really need some way to force through the Armageddon and the Disrupt is the cheapest way besides Force to do that (I don't feel I have enough blue cards to support both Force and Misdirection). The sideboard's clearly right off the top of my head; I know that I can't board in half of these cards without crippling my color requirements for Force, etc. Any help is appreciated.

Do you still draw a card off Disrupt if your opponent pays the one mana? If so then i think its playable for this type of deck. I do think that the Land Grants are not needed in addition to the Tithes, i would probably swap them for Cities. Although i like the Enforcers myself, i dont think they are necessary and i think they should be two more blue cards to help out FoW.

You draw a card off Disrupt as long as it resolves; whether it actually counters anything is irrelevant.

Incidentally you could try Divert in plce of Disrupt. You don't get the cantrip effect but requiring two mana to stop it may be enough to make the difference between a countered Geddon and a resolved one.

By the way, I really like the way this deck looks. I think I'll try experimenting with it as well. I would like nothing better than to see multicolored aggro decks find a place in type one.
