Spinifex Deckling

Started in Fallen Empires, left with Homelands, came back with Khans of Tarkir. I love limited formats and play standard a bit. Don't care much for Commander and don't have the card base (or willingness to pay) for a competitive Modern deck.

Said on Eldrazi & Taxes...

#1

The White/Red Death & Taxes deck was considered for a while, based on Craig Wesco's article but ultimately I rejected it, simply because Harsh Mentor is just not that good. Yes, you Shock when they fetch, but that's about the limit of its abilities in most match-ups. It doesn't even hit elves, since it doesn't hit mana abilities! Compare it to Tidehollow Sculler, which is a discard spell with legs, or Wasteland Strangler, which is a removal spell with legs and you'll see why Harsh Mentor doesn't hold up.

I would love to play a good Boros D&T deck at some point, but Harsh Mentor is just not good enough to move from a Black to a Red Splash.

As for Eidolon of the Great Revel, I'm not putting a creature in a deck that runs 8 or so colorless source (even mono-white D&T has trouble with , and red would be a splash).
