Well too bad, I'm gonna use it anyway.
Torpor Orb Casual Deck
Does anyone remember phyrexian dreadnought/eater of days and how CRAPPY it was for its drawback? Well, worry no more!!! Does anyone remember this card called Torpor Orb?
That's right, you can cast a 1 mana with 12/12 and trample on turn 1 at its earliest and F*CK THE OPPONENT OVER!!! (Summon a swamp, dark ritual, torpor orb and phyrexian dreadnaught)
This deck wins on turn 4 on average or turn 2 at its earliest (Get out phyrexian dreadnaught using the method mentioned above, use phyresis on it turn 2, then attack)
This deck is designed more for winning than having fun.
It was hard to choose. I then realized though that:
1: rebound is only effective if the creatures live to see another day
2: the +1 power isn't that effective (somewhat is on eater of days though)
But I also had to consider:1: artful dodge has flashback
Which did I choose
why not play Watery Grave instead of Drowned Catacomb? If you turn 1 Darkslick Shores, it'll speed the deck up if the only other land you have in hand is a Watery Grave in substitute of Drowned Catacomb. Regardless, this is super nasty. I'm joining the bandwagon and giving this a +1!
I built this deck a few months ago and I enjoyed the looks on people's faces when I dropped a Dreadnought on them on turn 1. I also discovered that this deck just folds to Path to Exile or any of various decent removal spells. Yes this deck is cute, but in no way is it competitive :P
Nice deck, I also love Torpor Orb. Have You considered Phantasmal Image ? I have a similar deckTorpor Orb Speed that I use for casual play but am going to try to bring to a tourney soon. Maybe you can get some more ideas from it. No Tutors though.. God, i wish that card was legal in Legacy.
