Been playing off and on since '94

I'm an avid brewer and usually create a new deck every day. I have about 300 private decks that are under construction but am slowly working to get them all public. I believe true brewers ascertain joy from the creative process and thus focus more on exploring new interactions and builds rather than putting the bulk of effort into tweaking and perfecting a single deck.

I don't really play competitively but I watch competitions (ProTour, etc) and read articles regularly. I play FNM and GameDay and Pre-Release as well as kitchen table. I enjoy watching other people play and offering input.

I have been accused of being a "collector" more than a player, which I suppose is true in some regards. I have always loved the flavor/lore/mythos of Magic and am prone to making decks that are more theme-oriented than win-oriented. Sometimes it's fun to play a deck that fits together cohesively rather than a jumble of the best cards smashed together.

I love me some big creatures, explosive plays and maverick decks! Never once played a "Net-Deck", always have to tweak something to make it my own. I value creativity and uniqueness in deck building. I am not stingy with my +1's. I upvote effort as well as my impression of the deck's strength or originality.

I love to check out decks and offer feedback, just post a link and I'll have a look!

I'll take a look at one of your decks.

I'm only doing that for a select few.

If you were going to pilot and/or design a deck with the sole purpose of beating U/R Wizard Prowess what would it be and why? Is there a deck that fulfills this goal but is also decent against some of the other top builds?

My initial thought was that Mono-Red would be well suited, but in testing it seems to be a bit too slow game 1, oddly enough. Was I just not a playing the red deck well or is something else better suited?

The goal would be to just crush Wizard Prowess and also fare reasonably well against other archetypes in the meta. Thanks!

Looks really solid. You might consider Venser's Journal, and Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots for some Hexproof/Shroud for Kefnet. Spellskite similarly can protect you or an important permanent. Also a fan of things like Witchbane Orb or Orbs of Warding so you don’t get tagged with a huge Discard spell.

Hey, guess what? You’re still my fave! :)

I know you don’t evaluate Standard decks anymore, but you still fancy messing around with just-for-fun/challenge/theme brews?

I’ve actually lately been venting my need to brew with the Standard card pool by making Brawl decks.
