Standard Battle of Wits deck for laughs.

You could mulligan down to nothing in an attempt to get any of the cards that aren't land or just roll with an all-land hand and hope to draw into something.

You WILL lose with this deck, but the laughs for beating someone with it are endless! Oh and Oblivion Ring will be your new favorite card to hate and probably along with any counter magic cards!

Suggestions are warmly welcome!


-You have a little greater than a 9.17% chance to draw anything other than a land on each and every card draw. In other words, you should see a card that's not a land, one in every nine cards or so.

-You have 211 cards left in your library after your opening hand, so you must draw into something other than a land by your turn 10 or 11 (assuming you're alive still).

Battle of Wits decks need a secondary win condition, like just playing strong control cards.

It's a casual deck concept, but this is just really poor execution.

@mafteechr, you missed the point. I want to win via Battle of Wits so it's an all-out win hard or lose hard deck.

Funny indeed, but I guess you wouldn't be able to survive all the turns before hitting out a Battle of Wits , and your opponent could also make sure to prepare something to get rid of it as well. But it is as you stated, the deck was for laughs and not for wins!

Anyways, I've yet to see a deck which really make good use of the card tho :3
