Battle of Wits



Score: Unrated


This is one of my very first decks that I made when I was just getting back into magic. It's funny because at the time I was convinced that winning in 5-6 turns was amazing. I clearly hadn't heard of RDW or a aptly timed counterspell.

Traumatize yourself and Worm Harvest are alternate-win cards that make their way into a good number of Battle of Wits decks. Something to consider.

I agree that they would be great in many battle of wits decks. However, with this deck I don't try to stick around long and instead try to play BoW and win by around the 5th or 6th turn consistently.

Yeah thats a problem with probably all my decks. I don't know of a good resource to check if a card can be used or not so I just make decks for kicks. I probably won't ever purchase the cards for one of these decks.

It looks like Gifts Ungiven, Mystical Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Demonic Tutor are the Banned or restricted cards.

I fixed them. Now I think this deck is legal.
