Quote from SantanaChampagneInstead of clasp, try out Trigon of Rage. It's been doing wonders for me. It gives you pump when you have extra mana, makes crusader able to kill just about anything, and of course you can do T2 Trigon, T3 Specter, T4 pump make them discard 4.
Quote from drenick@dark spawn: how's telling time work for you? kinda liking the deck list, lots of draw between 3 telling time, 3 cryptic, 4 remand, and 4 esper charm.
Quote from zmartguyWhat about this old list could it be a place to start ? Pls come with some prob and cons.. .http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/article.asp?ID=8769
Quote from ArgentumI don't know if you guys have still been playing this style of deck, but my updated list is pretty decent it avoids a lot of weaknesses we have.
What we need is a list of decks for the format so that we can then list general answers to them and thus overlapping answers can be used to make our decks as efficient as possible. If anyone is interested in helping me make this list I think it could progress this style of deck very quickly.
Anyway this is what I have been using, its really hard to play so easy to make a mistake with, but anyway.
