How it Works

{W}{W}{W}{W}{W}How the Deck Works{W}{W}{W}{W}{W}

The deck works by getting your getting your big creatures out soon so your opponent dosen't have time to do anything. The purpose of the small creatures is to get fast mana and to act as blockers while you're getting your big creatures out. I only put two Tooth and Nail Buys in because some creatures can be hardcasted for the same cost and because I have plenty of mana accleration already. I will be happy to accept ideas and clarafications.

{U}{U}{U}{U}{U}The Cards{U}{U}{U}{U}{U}

Copper Myr Buy - A quick mana producer and early defence.
Darksteel Colossus Buy - A force to be reconed with. Try to get it out as soon as possible.
Krosan Restorer Buy - Useful for cards such as Hickory Woodlot Buy where you can get multiple mana in one turn.
Llanowar Elves Buy - Great mana accelerators as you can potentually get seven mana avaible by turn three with only using this and Forest Buys.
Myojin of Life's Web Buy - Make sure to hardcast it. You can save a lot of mana doing that. Treat it as an 8/8 Tooth and Nail Buy.
Plated Slagwurm Buy - Not only is it very powerful, it dosen't get affected by Terror Buys.
Platinum Angel Buy - Come on, who dosen't want to be unbeatable by turn 5?
Sakura-Tribe Elder Buy - Useful as blockers and as mana producers. If they would die, use their ability.
Trolls of Tel-Jilad Buy - Powerful cards are prone to being destroyed. Protect them for the cost of {1}{G} per murder attempt.
Wirewood Elf Buy - If only I could have more than four Llanowar Elves Buys.

Journey of Discovery Buy - An excelent mana accelerator. Use only the second ability if you hava a lot of lands in your hand.
Sylvan Scrying Buy Useful for getting that last Cloudpost Buy or the last last part of the Urza lands.
Tooth and Nail Buy - The backbone of the deck. With it, you can get two Darksteel Colossus Buyes on turn four. Use it to get your biggies out early.
Fireball Buy - When you have enough mana, knock your opponent for a lot. It's worth the splash of red.

Talisman of Impulse Buy - Useful for getting the {R} for Fireball Buys. You can probably afford the loss of life for the cause.

Forest Buy - The most complacated card in the deck. Ok, the 60th most complacated card in the deck. Tap it to add {G} to your mana pool.
Hickory Woodlot Buy - Great for early mana. Six {G}s by turn three is always good.
Urza's Mine Buy, Urza's Power Plant Buy, and Urza's Tower Buy - Get those three together and watch the mana pile up.
