I mean I thought theres been community created cards before like Aggressive Mining and Waste Not I thought those were pretty neat.

Thanks for the suggestions! I had decided not to run Aggressive Mining at first, but you made a good point, and I hadn't thought of those other two, so thank you for that.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip can be Journeyer's Kite #2 with upside and should be fairly cheap.

Aggressive Mining is a favourite card of mine because at some point you just don't need to play your lands anymore. Note this doesn't prevent lands coming into play via other routes, just denies the one played per turn.

If you find yourself with no cards in hand and a full grave maybe consider Praetor's Counsel .

So over time since the release of Fractured Identity I keep thinking of reasons that this card might be underrated. Definatly under used. And it's simply broken lol. Let me explain. I've thought of a few cards that go great with it. Cards that create a great situation for you or just out right win. So heres what I got so far, here we go.

So far thats what I got. With enough ideas i can make a deck out of this idea. Obviously phage the Untouchable is the best one. My question to you guys is, what did I miss?

Thank you so much for responding! Your comments about card choice are very helpful. I think I will try Aggressive Mining when I get around to buying some more cards (and I'll be sure to tell you how it does). Now to end this comment in the usual fashion I have a couple of questions :)

Why do you run Opal Palace? Is it just used as a color fixer, or are the +1/+1 counters there to support Kraum, Ludevic's Opus?

While on the subject of lands I did some web surfing to find cards that can (effectively) put lands into play at instant speed I found Terrain Generator (although it only hits basics). Would you ever consider this card, or is it too slow when compared the the likes of Myriad Landscape?

I also would just like to further understand the way the deck usually plays and how you pilot it into both the mid and late game.

Alright! Meloku the Clouded Mirror is a expensive card for sure. But I kinda like it. Trade Routes is better. But I am going to stick with the 1/1 illusion maker. Its been good to have that token generation is some situations.

Llanowar Scout, it seams I haven't updated this list. Or forgot to. But I am not cutting Budoka Gardener, both are good. I guess I will cut Meloku the Clouded Mirror for the elve.

Hedron Crab, no, I don't think it is useful.

Training Grounds. YES! YES! YES! play it it is that good!

Life from the Loam. This is probably a player preferens. I did play it, but I never dreaded it. My build isen't that grave focused. And I never really felt that I needed it. Or could utilize it that well. But you can make the build a lot different and suddenly make great use of the card.

Aggressive Mining. I have never tested it. But you could defiantly play it. We can put lands in play with this in play anyways. With this Life from the Loam gets better. If you wanna go that route go for it. I think it will work.

I guess I should say that my playgroup has a lot of grave hate. So that is kinda way I don't play these cards.

Lord Windgrace. Yes. i have and I wanna test it. But I never got my hands on the jund cat. But I think Thrasios, Triton Hero, is just better.

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is really good. he cad draw 3 cards a turn vs three opponents. But other then that he is color identity red and a good fighter.
