I love coming up with my own builds and discussing Deck Strategy with others. I don't do Netdeck builds of anything "Top Ranked" -- not on Paper, and not on Arena (at least never in Ranked matches). I don't have any problem with Netdecking as a concept, I just prefer the challenge of seeing how far I can get ignoring all the most popular combos in any given format.

I also like keeping Mono-color builds relevant whenever possible (Though, I do run quite a few multi-color decks nowadays as well), as they were by FAR the most common deck type back when I learned to play the game, and now that I'm more experienced there is quite a nostalgia there that won't let me give it up.

Feel free to copy any of my decks though, as I said I've no problem with the concept!

Also if you want to play or even just discuss deck strategy then do feel free to add me on Arena.

Hey, awesome suggestion Gingervitis! I'm definitely going to give Pestilent Spirit a try in here. Maybe I'll just kick End the Festivities up to a x4 count instead of x2, since that and Blazing Volley seem like they'd be the best cards in the format to pair with him.

If I need direct damage to creatures at Instant speed, I think I'd probably go with Dual Shot over Spikefield Hazard but I'm going to give it a shot as-is before I start making tons of swaps.

Good looking out!
