My 3 shared fates decks are all my own creation 100%, as are my 2 Reef Worm decks, Assassins creed, my 2 battle of wits, (with unblockable & flyers, or all counters) Ghost council, green devotion, infinite Niv-Mizzet and fun with fungus.

The rest started with someone else's deck and changed to make my own.

Most of my decks are all in on a theme, this means you will need to add card interaction, card draw etc, if you want to make it competitive.

My decks work for me as kitchen table decks, it works.

you may notice I build with lands that are too good, thats because at our kitchen table, proxies of lands are ok (as long as they are pen on paper no pictures hand written rubbish proxies)

Often these decks will play our groups modern decks, to get a variety of practice against a variety of janky decks.

A lot of the decks start from mtggoldfish against the odds decks and are altered to make my own.

Said on Counter Wits...


Thanks Caerwyn, I have updated this deck with tutors.

I have other ways to win without Battle of Wits , these are Guile , Thing in the Ice  Flip, Torrential Gearhulk , Crush of Tentacles and Draining Whelk . These can win when played, especially as this is a counter/control deck opponent should have little board presence. this also means that Mystic Snake and Frilled Mystic can be very dangerous also.

With the added tutors there are 52 cards to win or find a win (ok Perplex will find idyllic tutor to find Battle of Wits , but it is a counter as well)

While your advice to go the persist route would indeed make a better and more competitive deck, I wanted it to be a counter orientated deck, it is meant to be able to win games which i think it can, while intimidating the opponent with a massive pile of counters!

Counter Wits

Unknown athurdent


normally Battle of Wits decks are 4 decks smooshed together, however, my idea of this battle of wits deck was to make one huge 240-260 card deck with battle of wits.

I went with a blue counter/control deck, splashing 3 other colours.

Now the problem I have is that I have no tutors, yet, and I need to figure out how to add these, or even if I need to, so could you please lend me your time and advice?

If I ever make this it would be for the kitchen table and done using hand written proxies.
