Hi.

I'm James, a mage born in the year 1988 (32 as of writing this description).

I'm a Johnny, but not your typical Johnny Combo Player, although I have recently started to try to include a game ending combo or two in my decks. I'm much more interested in building with synergistic themes in mind. I want my decks to be able to tell a story. I do have a slight Spike side to me, wanting to tune my deck to the best it can be while still staying on theme. Since theme is very important to me when deck building, I do identify myself as a Vorthos where the flavor of cards appeal more to me than actual use and are usually included over strictly better cards, at least in the initial drafts before final cuts are made. Now looking back on my player profile, I guess it is a pretty common traits to have being a writer.

My favorite color is White. Favorite Guild is Dimir, and favorite shard is Esper.

Because my building style is so focused on the theme of the overall deck, I'll often find it difficult to offer suggestions on decks that don't revolve around a theme, but I will gladly give it a try, so just ask.

Ares666 that one slipped by me. I'll take a look at it. Removal good. Is it better than Knollspine Invocation though? Typically I can only recover one spell per turn with this current build. If the deck was extra combat driven Firestorm is in instantly.

I could test it in place of Turbulent Dreams . The instant speed makes it more desirable, however dreams doesn't need to worry about damage for removal. Hmm. Great suggestion. Thank you.

MagicMarc thank you soo much for the look. Regarding Jace, LabMan, and Ageless your thoughts reflect why I made those cuts, so thank you for the reassurance that I made the right cuts.

Treasure Nabber I think was my getting caught up in this very light Pirate theme doing something piratey. I was actually talking to someone on Facebook about this inclusion and yeah, it's going to be swapped out for Narset.

It was also mentioned, and being considered about swapping in Windfall for Teferi's Puzzle Box . What are your thoughts on that?

I've been working on this deck that I find to be quite unique in that I haven't been able to find any outside sources to use as references. Even EDHREC doesn't have any deck lists to draw on. If anyone would be kind enough to take a look at my deck and give their honest opinion as well as any suggestions you might have I would really be appreciative and gladly return the favor on a deck of your choice. Please and thank you in advance. The deck is
