Deck for tournament - U/r

Beyond Dominia: The Type One Magic Mill: Deck for tournament - U/r

This is the deck I plan on using Sunday. I do not want to add 'Phids as I am determined to make Standstill work. The Blasts and F/I help me quite a bit. I added red for sideboard options and so far it has worked well in testing. I finally gave in and added Response and FoF even though an active Standstill is not synergistic with either.
At the last tournament Kevin and I went a combined 6-6 with the deck archtype and I found that I needed more Disks and Kegs over counters so the Mana Drains were removed. I've tested against a Keeper, BBS, Aggro/Enchantress and Sligh and seem to have a slight edge against all of them after sideboard now.
Really Mono-Blue gave me and Kevin the worst time and B2B was rough on us. I'm hoping the Red splash will make a big difference.
I'm more than willing to test any new ideas before the 19th and hope for some good input here.

I know you're probably trying the controlish Lanstill thing, but since you're playing U/r any way, then maybe Iron Monkey is more durable.

this is my botched version of the deck (1.5). I'm sure you can find the original around here somewhere.

4 standstill

Paul, I am coming in sleep-deprivation-mode.

Hence, you'll forgive me for my lack of skill that day won't you?


By BeBe, the Redeemer (Bebe) on Friday, May 10, 2002 - 10:55 pm:

I'm loving this... :)

By Razor (Razor) on Saturday, May 11, 2002 - 12:37 am:

Wait til you see the no-thinking-required.dec I play.



By Marco Toso (Marco) on Saturday, May 11, 2002 - 07:56 pm:

So it's May 24 week-end AND it's a Judgement pre-release week-end, but there's STILL a Type 1 tournament for a Mox? What do you expect the turn-out to be like?

By BeBe, the Redeemer (Bebe) on Sunday, May 12, 2002 - 10:59 am:

Excellent. We are Type 1 players.

By BeBe, the Redeemer (Bebe) on Monday, May 13, 2002 - 10:17 am:

BTW, I played Iron monkey at vtwo tournaments and got nto the finals both times. The key card in monkey is FoW. Without FoW it just isn't monkey.
Also Standstill was not that great in it. It prefers Draw 7's.
Maybe we can get a few deck lists going again now that Wishes are in. I think they might fit monkey well.

4 Powder Keg
3 Fire/Ice

2 Morphling

8 Island

4 Volcanic Island
3 Shivan Reef
2 Wasteland
1 Strip Mine

I hope you mean "Time Walk", since "Time Warp" is A$$. If you are using U-r, might as well use some Mox Monkeys somewhere in there.

By Israel Casanova (Casanova) on Tuesday, May 14, 2002 - 10:54 pm:

Yeah, I meant Time Walk, and the original version had 2 Shamans somewhere but that was a quick version and I forgot the original decklist :P

Type One tourney today. Toronto. Hairy Tarantula's. Yup.
