Bluffing, Lying, and Playing Your Opponent by Onikage
Anyone who has ever played poker can understand this. Playing your opponent comes in the form of mind games, bluffing, and sometimes just plain lying (without breaking the rules) to gain any advantage.

Combo of the Day
Keldon Battlewagon Buy + Pemmin's Aura Buy
This is unique. Freed from the Real Buy will not work here.
{1} Use the Aura's little-known ability to make the Wagon untargetable.
{2} Use its underused pump ability to make the Wagon a 2/1.
{3}: Use the very well-known untap ability to have the Wagon tap itself, doubling its power each time.
{4}: Maybe give it flying. Attack.
So, just {2}{U}{U}{U}{U} will give you a 32/1 trampler in mono-blue. And {U}{U} more will make it flying and untargetable.
