Hey man awesome deck! +1 from me!

I had a friend who used to run this type of deck in standard with Sphinx's Revelation and just a ton of horrible control that would make me want to pull my hair out. The issue he had was ending then he found AEtherling. This is not my general play style so I can only speak to it from my experience playing against it but I feel like this could find a home in your deck as at least a 1 of if not 2 as this is just a hard wincon that, if played intelligently, is nearly impossible to answer. Just an idea. Let me know your thoughts!

Haha, well done sir!

I enjoy making good decks with a "Killswitch" in them. Playing big multiplayer games with some competitive players and some newbies alike makes for some interesting scenarios, and when the 'bigshots' get aggressive on the newbies, it's fun to kill them, and, while having dominating board state, and swinging for lethal on the last player left alive, kill yourself with something like a Sphinx's Revelation for 28 when you only have 23 cards left in your library ;P

You have my +1!

I'd go with a 2nd Origins box if you have a means to unload it quickly. Otherwise I would go with RTR. There is tons of playable cards.

If you love porcupine tactics, definitely consider Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, and Sphere of Safety. They're fun and games.

Also a few Bant cards that I love that I thought I'd pass along your way. If you love lifegain, then there are few better cards to achieve the job than Sphinx's Revelation which also is a nice card draw engine. Nothing like Sphinx's Reving for x=7 at the end of your opponent's turn :3

Wall of Denial is a favorite of mine. That thing is hard to take down, and can let your sit behind it- a simple three drop- for ages.

I also love Spore Frog; a very cheap fog effect that can be saved for later or an emergency. Your opponent played a huge pump spell? Oops, fogged.

Sorry, couldn't resist commenting. I love bant. <3

So what are some thoughts on a UW tron sans Gifts Ungiven build? Basically just a UW control deck with access to the counterspells, Supreme Verdict, and huge Sphinx's Revelations? I feel that it'll play a bit better than blue tron, but have a bit easier time with the benefits of not being as weak to the red decks of the world, as well as being able to go over a lot of the other control decks in the format with potentially an eldrazi?

I know literally nothing about UW tron as opposed to blue tron, so if the current build is pretty much the same thing as I described, I'll just go with that. Also, how do we feel about UW control in any sense in today's meta?

I'm falling in love with Origins before it's even been released. Archive is spoiled to be a 5 CMC artifact that doubles your life gain and card draw (there's no may clause), except for the regular, first draw step draw.

I don't play Oloro, Ageless Ascetic EDH but I assume this is an auto-include here, along with most white/blue decks (Sphinx's Revelation's effect is quadrupled!). It reminds me more than a little of Doubling Season, but I want to know what you guys think and which decks you'll play it in :)

Alhammarret's Archive looks pretty great for edh. From a flavor perspective i find it funny how well it works with Sphinx's Revelation as well.
