Island Discussion

If budget isn't necessarily an issue, I'd replace some of your lands with 3x Polluted Delta (probably 1x Swamp, 1x Island, and 1x Dismal Backwater. You might also want to consider splashing for Dragonlord Ojutai (again, if budget isn't an issue).

Before giving advice, we should first know what exactly U want to achieve with your deck.

1-We know that you don't want to spend money on Theros block cards

2-?Do you want to mana ramp quickly into big creatures or do you want to quickly kill your opponent (and by quickly I mean that turn 3 or 4 they are less then 10 life.

But wat JerLo80 says is true, having no 3 drops will hurt you mid game....a lot.

If you don't want Theros then the mana ramp that could work is Elvish Mystics, Rattleclaw Mystic and Shaman of the Forgotten Ways . <---google it, tappedou wont register this card somehow

They are all vulnerable to removal, but they can ramp into big creatures very quickly if left unchecked. And they fill up well into a 1, 2 and 3 drop.

For land I would run (Again no Theros scrylands, although they would make you deck A LOT better)4x Wooded Foothills2x Rugged Highlands2x Swiftwater Cliffs2x Thornwood Falls2x Haven of the Spirit Dragon4x Frontier Bivouac3x Mountain3x Forest2x Island

Also, IMO, you have too much land. Take away 1x Plains and 1x Island, so you can add more creatures that have lifelink or other useful abilities. And why what's with the 4x Staff of the Mind Magus and 4x Staff of the Sun Magus? You really only need 2x of each, and then you can add more spells, or more creatures. And trust me, you need more creatures.

nice deck! i playtested it and figured out a turn 4 win

turn 1 Island

turn 2 Paradigm Shift

turn 3 Laboratory Maniac

because you can skip your draw step in your first main phase and do it in your second main phase after Laboratory Maniac is on the field. you do have to worry about conter spells and removal though. maybe a playset of Grand Abolisher? you would have to splash a bit of white.

luusydh Those are some awesome lands, but unfortunately we have to stick with commons. Maybe I could add a single Island and some Evolving Wilds?

@Magicrafter: I played against your Heh, let's play a game of "Casual", 5 times out of 6 and in the last game you nearly had me on the ropes after I blocked with my 1 painter's servant. The following round you still lost after having played Fabricate for the Voltaic Key I need to complete my combo on Turn 4. On Turn 3 you hit me for 11-3 poison counter from your Blightsteel Colossus. You were not able to draw Force of Will to stop me on turn 3 so Time Vault was already done by my Turn 3. On my Turn 4 after you drew an Island one your turn 3, the one Fabricate I had in my hand brought Voltaic Key to my hand and stopped time immediately... You never received another turn again to attack me with your Blightsteel Colossus.
It take TWO times that you must attack me to defeat me!...
Better luck next time.
