Hello all.

I am a current Magic player that has a bunch of extra cards that I'm looking to sell at a lower price than the average current price. Post or PM me a price. Any order over $40 will require to be shipped with a tracking number. I am willing to negotiate price. Payment will go through Paypal. If I haven't traded with you before, I will expect payment prior to shipping. PM me or leave a message here and I will get back to you. I periodically check the posts and is easy to stay in contact with.

Thanks for looking at my post. Cards are below. I am open to negotiate prices. Better discounts when multiple cards or sets are bought. Shipping is not included in the price. Tracking purchases will increase the total by $3. I will ship in the US.

Hey LVL_666!I'm kinda playing the poor man's version of your deck. Im using the exact same slivers for my tests, there's only Bonesplitter Sliver that I'm not sure aboud. Huge fan of Quick Sliver.

I only own Scrubland and Savannah, plus Im still mising Scalding Tarn and Marsh Flats. Been usingKrosan Verge instead.

I use Growing Rites of Itlimoc instead of Gaea's Cradle.

Memory Lapse instead of Disallow. I really like the 2 mana instead of 3, plus its pretty tempo.

And I'm running Rhystic Study and Land Tax just in case.

Plus, I just bought Vampiric bloodlust deck to have vanilla games. I'll have to playtest Teferi's Protection .

Hi! The deck looks nice.
I'd suggest you Logic Knot as a better Mana Leak. May be swap all them or two (because it may sometimes be awkward that it needs TWO blue rather than ONE as Leak does, but overall it's better than Leak). And may be even one Remand, but it's very good in decks that just want to kill opponent very fast, so it may act like an actual Counterspell with upside(or just a two-mana Cryptic Command "counter, draw"=) ).
One Burst Lightning is fine. I think 3 is too much. May be swap two/one for third Electrolyze and/or Forked Bolts?
Also Boomerang is a consideration because it bounces lands!
If Fetchs+schocks are too costly for you then mana base looks ok. But if you can afford them better swap 4 Shivan Reefs and some of Spirebluff Canal and Wandering Fumaroles for 4 Scalding Tarn 2-4 Steam Vents and possibly some other fetches like Polluted Delta and Flooded Strand (because they are the cheapest blue-ish fetches). And if you'll go for fetch+shock package you possibly even can go to 19 lands with so much cantrips and such low curve!

Sick list, you managed to fit more cards in than I. How are the Field of Ruin? Ive been considering them in my deck because my friend plays ETron. And how is deprive?

Also, I feel ya on Scalding Tarn and Snapcaster Mage. Way too expensive for me.

You can use Flooded Strand instead of Scalding Tarn.

Since you're probably only ever fetchin for a Steam Ventswith it, it really doesn't make much of a difference, but it costs about a third. :)

2-3 Steam Vents and at least 4 off-color fetches (Flooded Strand and Polluted Delta are both pretty cheap and finds Steam Vents and Island) would be a huge improvement for your land base. Off-color fetches should work just as well as Scalding Tarn, you dont really need to fetch Mountain in a Blood Moon deck anyways.

Thank you glad you like it... I too am thinking that now it's more aggro/midrange something between the two.

As far as the card choices I agree that there is room for improvement particularly. The mana base is a sore subject for me... I refuse to spend over $60 on a single copy of Scalding Tarn.
