Hello, planeswalker!

I learned how to play MTG from Portal before I moved into Mirage and 5th. Edition. I've been playing ever since. My favorite decks (in order, follow the links for explanations of the decks' history):

1) Goblins
2) Academy
3) Dredge-a-Tog
4) Prosperous Bloom
5) Necro
6) Workshop/MUD
7) Ghost Husk
8) Ghazi Glare
9) Zombies

My favorite Magic cards are (in order):

1) Tolarian Academy
2) Psychatog
3) Goblin Lackey
4) Goblin Welder
5) Necropotence
6) Mind Over Matter
7) Sundering Titan
8) Braingeyser
9) Squandered Resources
10) Metalworker .

Here's a read that will change your life and the way you play games: Playing to Win by David Sirlin (one of the designers behind Street Fighter).

Also, be sure to check out my folders page for information regarding older decks. I've been working on creating an extensive archive of decks from various Pro Tour Top 8s and explanations for certain cards.

@PlatinumOne: This deck has 14 non-creature spells maindeck and an entire sideboard of non-creatures. Playing 3 or more means the risk of "Drew all my Cavern of Souls in my opening hand, couldn't actually cast any spells, guess I mulligan down to 5."

I play 35 goblins in Goblins with 4 Cavern of Souls and still find situations where I can't do everything I want (cycle Gempalm Incinerator , pay for echo, and so on) because of the colorless mana.

You may not be playing against enough control decks to justify 4 Cavern of Souls , especially if you're playing so many non-tribal cards.

Just as a mental note, Japanese cards generally aren't worth more than English cards. This is due to Japanese being printed in similar quantities to English.

In other words, don't pay too much of a higher price if you can find a good seller. You should really only be paying for shipping. Anything more than that and you're getting ripped off.

@Flooremoji: Mono-Blue Turns with Jace Beleren is a thing as well. Also link to your deck:

I'm really hoping for Misdirection in Modern Horizons.

Yeah I'd just play some 2+ color version of Soul Sisters. You play Soul Warden turn 1 and Burn will just scoop lol.

1) Burn decks in Modern rely heavily on colored mana. You aren't going to cast Atarka's Command and then Boros Charm the next turn without relying on shocks and fetches. Sunscorched Desert may as well read: ", discard this card: do 1 damage to target player."

You're never going to be able tap it for mana except to hardcast Rift Bolt .

2) Ramunap Ruins is slower than just upping your land count and playing a manland. The damage also isn't insignificant, because like Sunscorched Desert , you're never going to tap it for colorless. Burn can find itself struggling to race against Affinity, Dredge, and Death's Shadow . Those situations get worse if your opening hand is relying on a shitty version of City of Brass .

Ramunap Ruins is probably neat sideboard tech against control, but there's not enough room.
